Ok since I basically had my little fun, destroying the ideas that the Sims'
makers had with the original families implanted into the game with the
storylines, I was wondering if there is a way to reset the neighborhoods if
you want to replay the sims there?

thanks

The easiest way is to remove the neighbourhoods folder (put it somewhere
safe if you want to keep some of the other neighbourhoods) and then reboot
the game. It will take a longer than normal time to boot and will regenerate
the default neighbourhoods. When you stop playing you can put the
neighbourhoods you saved back in. Another easy way is to not play after you
have made the neighbourhoods refresh themselves and simply save the N001 - 3
folders somewhere safe and then you can regularly and easily restore the
defaults simply by copying them back into the neighbourhoods folder whenever
you wish (and the game is off)

I just got through doing this about a couple days ago. Unless you want
to save a neighborhood,
just delete the neighborhood you don't want in your My Documents Sims 2
folder and replace it with the neighborhood
you want out of.......programs......EA Games.......Sims2
folder........TS Data........Res.......User Data.......Neighborhoods...
copy the neighborhood you want and paste it in the My Documents.....EA
games.......Sims 2........Neighborhoods.

It worked great for me. Somebody in the other Sims newsgroup posted this
and it worked for me. Somebody
said it won't generate a new neighborhood just by deleting but I don't
know. If you
need anymore help, just post again. I hope I made this clear. LOL

Did you remove the whole folder - or just the individual neighbourhood
folders? It's really weird cause it always works for me. It resets the
tutorials and everything.

Thanks for this info MM. I'll try it next time. I just thought somebody
had already tried it
and it didn't work, but if it did for you, then it must work.
Whew......long sentence. LOL

That's why I dump mine on my desktop - that way I can put N004 (My
Pleasantville ancestors neighbourhood) back in after the game has recreated
1-3.

Sooooooooooo, we can't just get rid of neighborhoods 1, 2 and 3? The game
regenerates them?

Well, getting rid of them is easy. You delete the individual neighbourhood
and it goes. The game regenerates them if you delete the entire
Neighbourhoods folder.

So I can get rid of the premade ones that way? It won't mess my game up?
You sure?
LMAO!
Heck I hardly ever really play the game, but when I do, it is a custom
neighborhood..............or just building, lol.
I found a house made like a ship online, but it about crashed my game as it
was soooooooo huge.
So I made my own smaller one......
Hmmm, maybe I will post a pic in binaries sometime.
