Nestled in suburbia, this town was once the heart of a thriving rural community. Seeking the perfect life, families found themselves drawn to Suburban Springs in great numbers. Now however, they have all left town in protest of new industries and commercial outputs that have tried to settle there. It seems the loss was theirs. With a bustling town centre, comfortable houses of all shapes and sizes and tons of venues to enjoy- not to mention dozens of blank lots to encourage your own creativity, the horizon is open and the possibilities are endless. Where better to start your new life?

(If you download the Supernatural version of Suburban Springs, you will of course need this too.)
Suburban Springs will be completely free of all non-EA, non-Store content. The only additional items I used were from the Pets Limited Edition Pet store, which most people with Pets should have anyway. Those who don’t may find that their pet store registers are replaced by microwaves!
I’m afraid I will not be uploading a populated version of Suburban Springs, nor will I be offering a save file. Finished the unpopulated versions has drained all my spare time and I simply do not have any more to give for the time being.
You may be pleased to know that I will be eventually updating Suburban Springs with all the new Seasons content. This update will not come straight away though, it will probably be available at around Christmas time. Note that if you find any problems with the current versions (though this is unlikely- the world has been in its testing stage for the last five months), any necessary fixes will be included in this version- and possibly this version only. By the time I update for Seasons I will have three separate versions of Suburban Springs and this means that fixing problems in each version may be a confusing and time-consuming process.
There are a few specific people on here without whom I could not have completed this project. Thank you to:
-DOLLDRMS1, Rukaya, HappySimmer3, Tefnuit and SikSouthernTink, for your extensive testing. I wouldn’t have noticed half the problems I did without you, you’ve helped to make SS so much better.
-Tefnuit again, for being so kind as to gift me some amazing Store stuff.
-Rflong, for your help and advice.
-Writin_Reg, for your invaluable knowledge. You helped me save the world from serious performance issues.
Lastly, I want to thank everyone else for their patience and support. I hope Suburban Springs was worth the wait.
Downloads + instructions!
I have created two different versions of this world: one with all EPs except Supernatural, and one with all EPs including Supernatural. I have also created an important guide for each of these versions which I highly recommend you download depending on the world version to choose to get.
-Click the link(s) appropriate to the world version you are downloading
-Click the ‘download’ button
-Wait for the guide/world to download
-When the download is complete, simply double-click on the file. If you are double-clicking the world, it should start installing through the launcher. If you are double-clicking the guide, it will open.
It sounds simple enough, but I know some people prefer not to use Mediafire as they have trouble using it so I thought it would pay to post some instructions.
And finally, to sum up this extremely long post, the world links are below. Enjoy! (Although it’s unlikely, if you experience problems, please feel free to post back here and I will reply as soon as possible.)
Known Issues I tried really really hard to make sure that Suburban Springs would play perfectly. However, a few minor problems have been brought to my attention that will be fixed in the Seasons update. In the meantime I would suggest you go into your games and make these small changes for yourself.

There are a few issues that I have found:
1. At the little mall area, the mixologist can't get to the bar because of the cabinets. I'm not sure why, but I deleted the cabinets and he can now get behind the bar.
2. At the social bunny, you need to turn the stairs once. The sims aren't able to get up the stairs otherwise.
3. Same is said for the Downtown Gems Cafeteria. They can't get to the second floor.

This looks really nice. I always look for worlds with great detail and realism.Also worlds that have a lot of places to visit. My sim can only stay in the house and decorate for so long, then I want a world with tones of places to visit to keep me interested and creative book marking this post. Again, community lot overload is wonderful is a wonderful thing Good work so far. I really like the carnival, I hope you have the palm reader there and boxcars with the cages for the half-man half-beast attraction

Thanks. I'm not including the palm reader as the world will be free of CC and Store content. What's the half-man half-beast attraction?

Wow! Now, THIS is worth downloading!I'm always in awe of the talented Simmers who can actually make some sense out the CAW Tool, and can craft something fantastic with it! Your town looks incredible. I cant wait to have a few of my Sims move there! It was also a great idea to leave out the Mods, CC, and Store Content. That means that EVERYONE can experience Suburban Springs. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
