Resetting Pleasantview, Strangetown or Veronaville
1. Make sure your The Sims 2 game isn't running.
2. Back up your games files. Now find the following location on your hard drive: My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighbourhoods.
3. Right-click on the folder you are replacing, (N001 for Pleasantview, N002 for Strangetown and N003 for Veronaville) and choose 'Delete'.
4. Click yes when asked, to confirm deletion.
5. Find the following location on your hard drive: C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\UserData\Neighbourhoods. (Note: This assumes you have installed the game into the default location. If you have the game installed on a drive with a different letter, and then change the C:\ to the letter of the drive your game is installed on).
6. If you look in the folder listed in step 6, you will see at least 4 folders and 1 file. The three folders we are interested in are the ones labelled N001, N002 and N003.
7. Choose the neighbourhood that you want to reset from the three folders mentioned in step 7. The neighbourhoods are as follows:
o N001 = Pleasantview.
o N002 = Strangetown.
o N003 = Veronaville.
8. Right-click on the folder for the neighbourhood you will be resetting and choose the 'copy' option. (I.e. if you will be resetting Pleasantview then the correct folder to right-click on will be N001).
9. Now find the following location on your hard drive: My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighbourhoods.
10. Right-click inside a blank part of the folder listed in step 10 and choose the 'paste' option, wait while the folder and files are copied over.
11. Start your game and go to the pre-made neighbourhood you have just replaced. Verify that everything has indeed been reset.
