Sims Ville [PC – Unreleased]

Sims Ville [PC – Unreleased]

SimsVille was a cancelled computer game from Maxis that was to be a cross between The Sims and SimCity. It was announced before 2000, but cancelled in September 2001. The game was to offer the user control of a multitude of houses in a neighborhood in a fashion similar to The Sims. The cancellation came as Maxis decided to apply more of its staff to development of The Sims products. Many aspects of the game, such as a communal “downtown” area, were incorporated into the third expansion pack for The Sims, Hot Date. Also, several elements of Simsville, such as obtaining feedback from citizens, were used in Maxis’s next city simulation game, SimCity 4. Also, the fully 3D neighborhood view format was also used in The Sims 2.

The trailer can be seen on the SimCity 3000 Unlimited installation CD as well as The Sims: Livin’ Large expansion pack. – [Info from Wikipedia]

    The whole neighbourhood exploration mechanic was also explored even further in The Sims 3. While TS2 had the ability to view the whole town in 3D, it wasn’t until the third generation that characters are able to roam around freely.

    Theres actually a guy on Assembler Games who has a development build that he would sell for $3000. Hes out of his mind, but if someone did a fundraiser for it, it would be a piece of history for it to release/leak.

    Maxis’ art director, Ocean Quigly, worked on many of the Sim City projects, and also Simsville.
    He has quite a few videos and blog posts:

    I really wish I could try playing the “most complete” build they produced! Someday hopefully?
