Paris 1.0

New version of Paris available HERE.

The Sims 3 Paris World is the first world project and the largest project attempted by The Sims Key.
After EA released World Adventures which offers us the ability to travel to France, but only to the rural area, we decided to start working on the urban area.
Comparing with EA standard worlds such as Sunset Valley or Twinbrook, Paris world is a lot larger in its terrain size and also in lots number.
We’ve tried to make Paris to be a different type of world, putting the player into a different area of gameplay and experiencing a more closer interaction with the city itself.
Using this world, the player could get more familiar and taste some of the feelings you get living in one of the most cultural and beautiful cities in the world.
Sims 3 Paris World includes a total of 315 lots, residential and community.
The whole city is crossed by the river Seine, and there are ten bridges over the river, connecting the Paris districts.
Large Parks are spread all over the city, closing in to the real Paris atmosphere.
The districts and important places such as Louvre, Eiffel Tower or Jardin du Luxembrugh are connected by a subway network.
A big variety of cobblestone types are used in roads, sidewalks and important places such as Place de la Concorde or Place de la Republique.
Aprox 30% of residential lots are fully furnished.
Aporx 40% of residential lots are built respecting the Paris Haussmann architecture, but they aren’t furnished.
Aprox 30% or residential lots are empty, waiting to be built by the player.
Community lots, representing real Paris buildings such as Grand Palais, Royal Palais or Les Invalides, are fully built in the exterior, using custom content and getting as close as possible to the real Paris buildings.
Due to custom content limits, those community lots aren’t furnished.
The Sims Key will release future contents, related to Paris important buildings including furniture and more architectural elements.

To get more accurate to real Paris streets network and urban atmosphere, its lots have a custom size comparing to official EA Worlds.
Most of the lots are: 56×30 and 48×26.
Standard sizes such as 40×30, 30×20 or 64×64 are also present in world file.

All Base Game rabbitholes are present in community lots, some of them being placed twice due to the city size.
Expansion Pack rabbitholes are waiting to be placed by the player.

Considering the game size limits, monuments are placed geographically correct as much as possible in correlation with the real Paris.

I saw this on Sims 3 updates…and it says the download is free. So I downloaded and tried to unzip it, but I can not unzip this package. You may need to redo your zip file on this. And if this is a “free” download, please take a look and see why we can’t unzip this to download to our game. I was excited to play this world. Now I’m sad because I can’t unzip the file at all. Please help.
Thank you.

We recommend to use WinRAR to unzip the file and it will work perfectly.

Hey, this is simply amazing. I just thought I should point out you made a typo, Paris is crossed by the river Seine and you wrote Siene.

@ Laura:
That’s a good observation, and has been corrected.
Thank you. :)

I just started playing with this. First of all, let me say that it is amazingly accurate! I got so excited when I noticed things such as the Arc de Triomphe in their right places. And the architecture looks amazing.

One thing, though. None of the houses are inhabited, so I guess I have to furnish the whole city with sims myself. This wouldn’t be a problem, except that only one house is in the price range of a newly-created family, so I have to move in each family individually, play as them and increase their funds, then go back and move them to another house so that I can move another family into the cheap building. =/

I love the world. It is stunning. I have one problem tho. The Paris custom content package is not workable with my MacBook. I was able to download everything else except that. I was wondering if you could make it for make or have a solution to my problem. Thanks!

For those having trouble with the archive, delete and re-download. This also happened to me, for whatever reason the download gets cancelled
