It's Been A Long While... ☕

Hi :)

I've missed CAW and want to see if I can still make a world. I love making worlds with lots of different sections so this one will have several, too.
It's far from finished- like still sculpting- but I wanted to share anyway. :cookie:

These are a few of the areas- (the grass is a little dark right now. I'm still a long way of finding each areas personality) :)

Old Volcano area-

Where the little City will be-

River marsh, of course-

River cliffs going into the hills -

What will be snowy mountains and ice fields -

and the Mesas of the Desert side (way too big, imo) :lol:

I'll have to blend the two areas somehow, to make them less weird.

I don't plan on filling it full of All the types of lots. More wilderness and little homestead areas than sections with towns. :)

Happy CAW-ing! :mrgreen:


.... I think I like this grass base better. :mrgreen:

    @Rflong7 Excited about a new world for the Sims 3, was wishing someone would start making a new one to help keep the Sims 3 alive.
    I have most if not all of your worlds. I only have problems with the very large and dark worlds.
    I am at the moment playing in Isle of Sims ll, (for like a thousand times already). it meets all my needs for play style. Am hoping you will add a legacy and festive lot to your new world. A lot of worlds don't have them. Thanks for all the hard work you have put into The Sims 3 over the years.

    Yay! Queen of CAW is back. :sweat_smile:

    I'm not fan of desert side idea, but like how volcano area looks.
  • Rflong7Rflong7 Posts: 35,042 Member
    Aw- Thanks! @Greenb70 @suzses @Moinesse @chojrak

    It will have a nice city and a festival lot. I like them, too. :mrgreen:
    I hope to improve the desert area and win people over. It's a pretty large area but it has to be high for the mountains behind it. I think. XD

    I've been looking at Lucky Palms to try and get the Mesas better... Not Really copying, per se. :blush:

    This is about ground height

    Hi, :mrgreen:

    Thanks! @Rockleyfamily @TadOlson :cookie:

    This shows how I'm trying to blend 2 different types of Mountain ranges-

    So far, before I move on to another section...

    It's really looking great Rflong. I love the idea of having some large wilderness areas. :smiley:

    Would snow at the tops help blend things? You don't have to win me over. I think it is unique and beautiful. I finally have a new PC so I am on a downloading binge. Can you post a link to your studio? I NEED your worlds.
  • ZeeGeeZeeGee Posts: 3,648 Member
    Soo excited to get a new world by you! Thank you!

    I increased the tansparancy in the paint brush in CAW to blend two different terrains together when I wanted to blend grass to desert dirt.
    @RFlong7 -I finished Logan just before Christmas and had no lots in a new game though the world is working fine and I've never had trouble with any blank worlds.

    Hi :mrgreen:

    Thanks so much for leaving me such encouraging comments! I didn't want to reply until I had an update but so far I'm not happy with my transition areas and keep redoing it. :lol: :blush:

    I've planned to have snow on the Northern mountains and I don't want snow showing on the desert side. Thanks for the suggestion, though. We never know where inspiration comes. :cookie:
    I have most of my worlds on these 2 studios.

    I'm so glad your worlds are going well. Thanks, I'll remember to use transparency when blending. :cookie:

    All I can say is YAY!!!
  • Rflong7Rflong7 Posts: 35,042 Member
    Hi, @Mr_Deacon Thanks! :mrgreen:

    I had been avoiding the world because I couldn't make the transition mountains gray, like I wanted. :( A had to stop and rethink. :lol:
    I tried for darker mountains without being spooky but it just looked pathetic. :cry:
    rAmrF7g.jpg

    Trashed that sadness and rethunk it- again. I decided to go simple, to use the paints that were there.

    Now I'm going to move on to the cliffs further down those hills. :)

    Hi :)

    Thanks! @Bettyboop55

    update~ :)

    The Cliffs... I started here but it felt like way too much red desert.

    I changed it and felt a better. it's the cliffs over the lake area. :)

    Oh wow those cliffs are looking beautiful. Your terrain painting always adds so much depth. In the last picture, on the right, I really love the look of what seems like a river meandering beside the cliff. It's really scenic. I can't wait to see more !
