The Sims 3 Guide - Sunset Valley

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.

There is another town, but you have to have different expansion packs to get them. You can also buy them online in the sims 3 store. You can move house, you just click on your sim, use their cellphone and press move.

I have Wii Sims3 and nothing mentioned here is correct. My beach town is not sunset valley and the graveyard is called Stone Cold Graveyard. Your cheats are for a different game. I think you need to address this problem because I search under WII games and it took me to this site. WRONG!

The town is different from the map shown here, but not by much. My only complaint about the game is the lack of pre-meditated actions. As with the previous Sim games, you were able to pause the game and choose various tasks for your Sim to complete (while sleeping, gone to work, and or school). This makes controlling mulitple Sims a hassle. I had a father and daughter and found it extremely difficult to fulfill his needs as well as hers in a timely manner when yu have to do every single action for/with the Sim. There is very little "free will."

The Sims 3 game I have doesn't have a town like that. It's acturally getting a little boring because I know where everything is and I have made my sims work at all the jobs.
