Newcrest Sims 4 was not always part of the base game. It was introduced after a free game update in June 2015 as an addition to other base game worlds. Newcrest was designed to offer complete freedom to the player regarding building and arranging homes in the city. Unlike many other Sims 4 worlds, this one has no community lots when you first start playing. Keep reading to discover how to build in Newcrest, and learn what to expect if you decide to move your Sims here.

What makes Newcrest sims 4 so special?
If you look at the Newcrest sims 4 map, you’ll notice that this whole world is one big, spacious green surface that resembles suburban areas. Although you can see city lights and buildings in the distance, these are not a part of Newcrest. This is a strictly residential area with much potential and zero public spaces. Unlike the other worlds in the Sims 4, the Newcrest has no pre-built homes or even community spaces. Instead, the entire world of Newcrest is empty and ready for you to create ground up.
starting life in Newcrest
Newcrest is purely residential and has 15 empty lots to be precise, which means that the whole world is up to you to design to your liking. To start your journey here, you can either take pre-built houses from the gallery or build homes yourself.
Since there are no community lots, the best solution to create some is to change a lot type from residential to community, and then create your own community space. You’ll be able to do this from the Newcrest World Map, by clicking on the desired lot and choosing Change Lot Type. The world features three neighborhoods, all of which are residential by default:
- Llama Lagoon
- Ridgeline Drive
Bridgeview is a family-friendly Newcrest sims 4 neighborhood. It features five small residential lots, ideal for starter families and building small homes with starter budgets. Although the lots are small, the residents of this neighborhood will be able to enjoy nice views of the canal on one side, and the scenic skyline on the other side. It features a small park where Sims can picnic, and a fishing pond over the canal, ideal for developing your Sims’ fishing skills. Since this is a family suburban area, there is also a little playground with monkey bars for youngsters living in the area.
