Custom Neighbourhoods
You can import "SimCity 4" Terrains into The Sims 2 to create new Custom Neighbourhoods. When you download one of these files, from this site at least, it will be a .ZIP file so you need Winzip or any similar program that can handle Zip files. It's a slightly complex procedure so I will walk you through a "worked example" using my Neighbourhood Newton Abbey.

The next time you open your game you should see the image in the viewer as well as the Neighbourhood in your game.

If you have SimCity 4 you can make your own custom terrains for Custom Neighbourhoods. Add a Custom Neighbourhood Picture. Or download custom neighbourhoods made by Sita here.
