In The Sims, it is a loop with ten residential lots. Originally, it was the entire neighborhood. While it was shown as being connected to another street, that street was not named, and the area it led to was not shown, until The Sims: Unleashed expanded the neighborhood to include Old Town. If Unleashed is installed, Sim Lane connects to Elm Street, and is in the upper right-hand corner of the neighborhood view. As all neighborhoods in The Sims use the same layout, Sim Lane is in all neighborhoods, but only has premade houses and residents in Neighborhood 1 and Neighborhood 2. In the neighborhood view. the part of Sim Lane that connects to Elm Street is shown as having trees down the middle, implying that it has a central median.
In The Sims 2, it is a short street in Pleasantview's main residential area. It is located between Main Street and Wright Way, and runs between Lakeside Drive and Woodland Drive. The Goths and Pleasants live on Sim Lane.
