Simtropolis was built 10 years after the events of Sims 2 when Hanzel Goth-Mundane the astronaut discovered a damaged Alien Cruiser holding the Birth Empress.He was on a mission to find a way to save New Sim Earth which had been plagued by earthquakes and ecological disasters since Mother Nature disappeared. Thankful for saving her and her people stranded on the ship, the Birth Empress had her scientists build a device to heal New Sim Earth. The Alien Empire and the Landgraab, Goth-Mundane and Curious families helped to build the futuristic city that would emulate the best all Sim Earth had to offer. Protected by the future’s response to Superheroes, the Society of Incredible Metasims, nothing has looked better for the gem of New Sim Earth. Can the city fend off destruction from bitter Supervillians and crazed former heroes?
The city is split into four sections, Simtropolis City, New Pleasantview, Nova Strangetown, Little Veronaville, Supernatural Sanctuary, and Asylum Abode.
The two relatively new districts of SimNation, Supernatural Sanctuary and Asylum Abode, are very dynamic neighbourhoods. Supernatural Sanctuary is the personal kingdom of Sacagawea Greenwood, and a safe haven for all life-states. Asylum Abode was once the foremost detainment facilities for Supervillians, being located on an isolated plateau off Nova Strangetown. When a Zombie Virus broke out within the Asylum walls, the power hungry Warden destroyed the bridges, containing the virus on the plateau and sparing SimNation. Now it’s a place of suffering, as the former villainous inmates run riot, and the guards have to fight off zombies and homicidal maniacs.
The following takes place 25 years after the events of Sims 2.
