Neighborhood 1 was the main neighborhood featured in The Sims. N1 featured the residents of Sim Lane that later became Pleasantview in The Sims 2, and that some believe was Sunset Valley in The Sims 3.
In The Sims, Neighborhood 1 was sometimes referred to as "SimVille" or SimCity by players. It only showed Sim Lane. Later on with the Unleashed expansion pack, a whole new area was put in called Old Town. It was then possible to visit shops and parks.
The neighborhoods ranged from 1 to 8, the second one featuring the Mashuga family.
