The Sims 3 Guide - Sunset Valley

River View (New Town)

While you can't currently begin a new town from scratch, and the Edit Town tool is limited by patches of uneditable terrain (these areas are not assigned to lots, so therefore cannot be altered), EA have released a new town called River View.

Downloading it is not as simple as it perhaps should be.

First, go to www.thesims3.com

Click the Create an Account link and register your game. Note that you will need your game's serial number to do this (those who have downloaded the game should have River View already).

You should then be given Sim Points to spend in the game's store, so head there using the navigational buttons on the website and download the River View map.

Does anybody know a site with different towns to download?

Added 29th Jul 2012, ID #169880

Some corrections, first corrections is that Riverview is free. You only need to register your game and then update it to download. If you haven't updated your copy of The Sims 3 do this before downloading or else it won't work. Second, registering the game allows the download. If you don't have the game the download would damage your computer. This is answering a few questions asked by multiple users.the registration will prove that you have the game. This also allows you to download bonus content to the game.

i cant install it because i need to update my game huhuhu..

Added 12th May 2012, ID #141526

Riverview is only for pc. Unfortunately, for those who bought a used game, check before buying and see if it has to be registered. If so, don't buy it because it is a total loss of money, I feel for you, I've been ripped of like that too. If bought at a store but lost the code, contact EA and see if they can help, be sure you have proof you bought the game.
On the towns, Sunset is prettier but I like Riverview due to the townies. The characters seem to be friendlier, more eligable bachors for those who want families.
You can move a family from Sunset, but I don't know how,it isn't easy but I read something about doing it on Carl's site for sim games. I use both sites, there and here for info

So, this isn't like the original SIMs where you can go between worlds with the same character by taking a cab or jumping through a rabbit hole?

Added 14th Aug 2011, ID #67109

Added 10th Aug 2011, ID #65806

wat does persona mean

Added 9th Aug 2011, ID #65370

you cant use other peoples serial code! the code is for your game and once youve lost it you cant use anyone elses. And even if you could it wouldnt be fair.

Added 2nd Aug 2011, ID #63477

you have to have the game in a box. it comes with a leaflet that has the code on it. There is NO OTHER WAY. Riverview is an incentive for players to buy the game. and if you lose the code, sucks for you. no other way. sorry. :(

Added 2nd Aug 2011, ID #63475
