Dev Blog

I wanted to mention members can share other Sims related photos, and stories on the site, even if they aren't related to SV2020.

We basically made that a rule because the town will change depending on the way players play (thinking about generational players). Get into a few generations and SV2020 won't look like it's original self anymore. That's fine. We still want players to be able to share their photos and stories if they so choose.

If you're favorite town is say Moonlight Falls, or Riverview, by all means share photos from those towns!! As long as it's Sims 3 related it's all good. It's more about the site being used to share the love of Sims 3.

Jaga created this site to be enjoyed by all who love Sims 3 as much as we do. To share photos and stories with each other.

Members are also allowed to share CC and Mod finds as well. As long as it's all family friendly, please no adult related cc or mods.

If you would like to share an image from Imgur or from another image sharing site you can do this by going to our Member Activity page, click in the message box and click the image link button, to then add your link. As shown in this photo.

If you have stories hosted on a different website, say your own blog, you can share links the same way.

Thank you to all that have shared photos and fun things from Sims 3 with us!! 🥰


The watch the show interaction cancels itself out, due to it needing 3 or 4 audience markers. This can be fixed by placing them via buydebug. You are looking for objects called Show Floor Benches or Tables. After it's fixed, save a copy of the lot to the library.

We've been extremely pleased with the community's feedback on SV 2020, which has been overwhelmingly positive. And knowing we had some things that we wanted to continue development on, we decided to keep going with it on a 2.0 version. We've added improvements to existing properties, all-new properties, new lot locations in the world, new sims, fixes to lots that were in the originals, and more.

MrsFlynn noticed some bugged & invisible Junkyard spawners on one of the apartment lots today (at 2450 Pinochle Point). The lot was originally created as a Junkyard in Sunset Valley, and re-zoned for residential. Spawners sometimes bug out when you attempt to bulldoze a lot - these are bugged and don't show visibly when editing the lot.

We're working on 2.0 which has some town improvements (lights, new properties), the 1.1 version of the Royal Paradise Hotel, and some fixes for bugs we've found.
