WARNING

This is still in testing, but I'm 95% sure this world will work, I've more or less finished the game play checks, I'm about to add the rabbit holes, it will be downloadable at some point next week.

The world will not contain any of the Sims from the world adventures, it would cause duplicate problems when you went on holiday to France.

Depending on what happens with this world, China and Egypt Delux base worlds will follow

On a side note from all of this, I've also pulled out a file that what seem to makes a world, a vacation world. I will be doing some more test into this, but it looks like it will be possible to make vacation worlds, more info to follow about this when I've completed the tests into this.

    FINALLY! I gave up after tearing all my hair out! I got everything working, removed all the Sims, changed all the lot types (mostly residential), exported, and it never showed up in game. :P

    Well done! :D

    This is exciting news! I know I'll test France when it's available.

    Hope you have figured out how to do a vacation world, just for the sake of knowing how it's done. I love to read about breakthroughs in modding :)

    Woot! You are a marvel. Excellent, excellent job! :D

    Very exciting news about the vacation file, too. This could open up a whole new realm of possibilities...

    MrCrumplebottom1 - I'm surprised I've got any hair left, I'm going be honest with you the process to do this is very messy and very time consuming. I'm trying to work out a faster way of doing this. I now you have some experience using s3pe, so the offending little file is:-

    Drum roll please

    S3_296A6258_00000000_0000000000000001%%+UNKN

    Now for the bit I reveal what is on that file, get ready to bang your head against the wall:-



    Yes that it, I will do it again just it case you missed it:-



    Over 4700 files in France, I was hoping for some major code and having to spend hours and hours to understand binary files.

    That's only half the battle, you need to able to rebuild the world in CAW, remove the Sim and in the end crash CAW to get the save to work. When you have done all that, you can start to replace the lots and layers back into the secondary world file. Then you need to remove the layers from the overridden file. Then your good to go, just the small matter of making the world a base world.

    I hope to upload a base version of the world with the deluxe version, it will probable easier than doing a guide.

    I can confirm that the file S3_296A6258_00000000_0000000000000001%%+UNKN when attached to a installed world, it will convert the world into a holiday world, I've just visited a player made world using that file, ingame. Any world can be converted into a holiday world, including already downloaded worlds. :mrgreen:
    You even get adventures and you can purchase adventure objects.

    I will do a full step by step tutorial for this very soon.

    DOLLDRMS1- The world will be ready soonish, the extra lots, I'm adding are nothing to special, so you will have little test this time, it a great world to play thou, simple and fast.


    Clayworld- I agree, my favorite vacation spot

    DarkMirage- Many thanks :mrgreen:

    Mercuria- I agree again the vacation file is a massive bonus in this.

    Ok here are some more pics of France deluxe

    Custom worlds as vacation spots! That's quite a break through.

    Hey Stw!
    I was wondering where you've been, but it seems you've had your head stuck in the inner workings of world files. :lol:

    This is really cool, you're going to be every bodies best friend when you upload this! :mrgreen:

    :lol: My wife says, I'm not allowed to marry anybody else, but many thanks for asking :lol: .


    Just a update:-

    This is a little about what I will be uploading, the deluxe version will be a compatible base world, so it will contain base game spawners, new lots that will include starter lots, Rabbit holes, everything that make the world a base world, it will also contain hidden keys to unlock the tombs, the base camp will be removed, townie house's will be made to residential house's.

    The other version will be a vanilla version, which will be a copy of the original world, you can edit this world any way you like.

    The last version for more advanced users, the CAW Files, complete with the INI files to make the world work, so you can build your own France world.

    The uploads of the two worlds and the CAW files, you should see by the end of the week.

    The China and Egypt worlds, I do plan to make them, but I will be finishing my current project first (Sand Point World), so it will be a good 2 months before you see a deluxe version of them worlds.

    The deluxe version sounds awesome. You have really gone the extra mile with providing starter lots, spawners and keys for the tombs. I'm looking forward to downloading it more than ever! Thanks, Stw!

    Many thanks DD. :mrgreen:

    Just a quick update, the world is more or less completed, I've still got to add a few base game spawners, which will be a little less than a normal base world, due to this world already having spawners.

    I did not go over the top with the new Rabbit Holes, they are small and light on objects, the world already contains 60 lots and I wanted to keep the loading times down for this world.

    The initial play testing I've done, the world plays amazing, it's perfect for the player who likes adventure, mixed with a little style.

    I've added scooters to some house's, to help the world gain that french feeling, you will see the french Sims driving around on scooters.

    Still on target for a weekend release:-
