Well, the second method works for me, but when attempting the first world, the world will open once, but then it spits out an error when attempting to open it again (even if no changes were saved to it). Weird.

Not sure if you'll read this. But I just had the same issue. What worked for me was to recreate the description of the world to the exact same name as my exported name. Not sure why it worked but it did.

I know the thread hasn't had a reply in 9 months. I don't know if its no longer being supported but im having some trouble. I cannot no matter how much i try get the university world to open. It says the file is packed or something. I'm able to open the other worlds without an issue but i cannot get University to open. What am i doing wrong? Do you think it is because i have a sim in university? I followed the first guide and i just can't get it open. Did anyone else have an issue like this?

Edit- I have edited lots within the world in game, not sure if that makes a difference or not. That is why i wanted to edit the world in CAW. The grass in the lots no longer match the grass in the world. Looks extremely weird and i don't like it. Wanted to changed the grass in most of the worlds so it doesn't look so odd.

Second Edit- I found a site that has the worlds in CAW format so that is working. Thank you for the thread! Could not figure this stuff out without it

I know this is an old thread, but I just got back into S3.

I'm pretty desperate to edit my Bridgeport game. I have tried both methods and CAW just tells me it can't work with a packed file. Can anyone help me?

@baumerrt Does your world file contain UNKN 0x0498DA7E and UNKN 0x0477BD6A?

The "Original Method" does not work. I have two versions of "Sims University" world; one is the default, the other is a custom one to replace it. I am trying to open them in CAW to figure out which one is the original so that I can put it back in the game. Here is what I did, which, last I checked, is EXACTLY what the "Original Method" said to do!

I open CAW, make a new world using "LargeFlatMap 300" with a Max Height of 100 (default) and "Lush" terrain (default), then saved it as "Test.world" I open s3pe, then click "File->Open" then "Test.world". I then do "Resource->Import->From .package" and choose "Sims University.world", check "Compress" and "Use Resource Names", then click "Replace Duplicates", then Import. I click "No" for autosave after every file, then OK. Once imported, I go find and delete "WPID 0xF609FD60" and "UNKN 0x296A6258". I then click "File->Save" and it is saved as "Test.world", replacing the one I had originally made. I then open CAW back up, click "File->Open" and click "Test.world". I get an error saying "Unable to load file. 'C:\Users\...\The Sims 3 Create A World Tool\UserToolData\Worlds]Test.world': Cannot load a Packed File (0) in The Sims 3 Create A World Tool - Beta"

@bobgrey1997 Try the second method. If you are just trying to identify which world is the original and which is modified, you should be able to tell from the file properties (modification dates), and also file size.

I don't know how large the original was. Also, one was "modified" on July 6 2016 and the other in January 2013. I didn't even have my computer until December 2016...

Those dates are wrong.

Either way, I got it figured out. I simply removed both and reinstalled the University expansion.

Yes, the modification date would have been when the game was published. You could have looked on the disc to see the size of the original, if you have a disc install.
