The Sims 3 Guide - Sunset Valley
Sunset Valley is the home town of your Sims. If you want to succeed at the game and make the most of life for your Sims, you will want to learn the map. Exploration is very much encouraged in the game, and there are plenty of secrets to find that many gamers will never even touch. This section aims to give you locations and information for all the treasures of Sunset Valley as well as some of the more mundane areas.
The town is massive, and is part of EA's main change to The Sims formula, with neighbourhood exploration. Everything is linked with no loading, so you can visit your neighbour's house, the grocery store or the town park, which all continue naturally whether you visit or not. Some lots are private, and others are open to the community.
Note: Compass directions assume the beach and sea is to the south.
