I am tired of EA's incredible greed and outrageous prices for junk! I have moved to Second Life and am no longer supporting mods here. Feel free to do anything you want with my mods. There are very, very simple tuning mods and easily altered. If you enjoy playing Sims 3 I hope you continue to do so.

**Requires Ambitions**
Since EA in their infinite stupidity broke CAW when they released Ambitions I have been suffering from CAWWS (Create a World Withdrawal Syndrome). So I decided to clear out all the houses in Twinbrook. Having cleared out all those houses and uploading “Twinbrook Biz Lots Only”, what I really wanted was a world with completely empty lots. No Business or Residential buildings so I removed all the Business buildings and here is Twinbrook All Empty Lots.



World Editor isn't as good as CAW but it helps relieve symptoms of CAWWS. World Editor lets you put lots anywhere they will fit.



Here's a fun little function.
If you bulldoze an already empty lot it goes away completely.

Then you are not restricted by the lot placements that came with Twinbrook.
For example you can bulldoze 2 small lots and replace it with a larger lot, or several smaller ones.

Find World Editor in the game here.




The Fog Emitter discovered by Goggalor goes even farther towards relieving CAWWS symptoms.
It lets you set all kinds of neat effects like birds, waterfalls, snow, rain etc. There is a short demo at this link.

To get the Fog Emitter press Shift+Control+C then enter the cheat buydebug. Then go into Buy Mode and you will find Fog Emitter here.




There is a complete list of effects attached.

Do you have World Adventures? I believe you may need it to use buydebug. I will look into that for you.

Winterhart, can you mark this as an Ambitions download, please? It won't work for people who don't have the world to begin with (which came with Ambitions).

"buydebug" works in all games, I only have the base game myself and I can use it.

This download, unlike your previous upload (with the businesses still in place), is not marked as needing Ambitions-but, now that plasticbox mentioned it, DO we need ambitions for this town to work? It seems that way :/

Ooo Weee! When I get Ambitions, this will be my first download. I am playing an empty Sunset Valley at the moment, and having too much fun. Thanks for doing this for us.

I use it as BuyDebug and click enter. Do it come up if you type in help?

No it does not appear when you type help. Everything else is there except that!

So this world only works for Ambitions?

#20 Old 20th Jun 2010 at 7:55 PM
Hey, I notice the green bridge in these pictures looks new to CAW, for Ambitions I assume. I wanted to know if it sets up over water without having to raise the land to make the cars run correctly over it? It looks as though it's over the water from the images with no raised land to make it work, but I imagine you could also get this look if the area the bridge is on is made into a community lot. Also, is it functional over land? For example: Would I be able to put that bridge over another road? And have a functional road over another functional road?

Thanks!

Wanted to add that you don't have to bulldoze the lots, the world editor allows you to 'grab' lots, then hit the delete key. Hope this helps in the future.

I have the same problem as bonnie3, I tried deleting caches but I still can't see the save in my game.
My game is in French, does it matter ?
