I'm not sure if I should be posting this here or in the old CAW category? But it seems like maybe all new worlds should be posted here now. Please let me know if I need to re-post in the old CAW forum.

I started working on a new build a few months ago. Not sure what I wanted to build. It has developed into a world I am calling Drifter's Isle. It is named after my sim and founder Darcy Drifter, who I created to test and play here.

I still have lots of work to do, but thought it was time to start sharing some pictures.

This island currently only uses base game and Island Paradise Expansion pack. I do have all of the stuff packs loaded, and have finished placing all of the store venues. I may upload a few more store sets for some new lots as well. I will start a list for anyone who is interested.

I was thinking of completing a few versions of this world as I complete it:
Version 1 would be Base Game + IP
version 2 would be Base Game + IP, WA, Ambitions, SN, and Seasons
version 3 would have all EP's

So is anyone interested in this?

Here are a few pictures of what I have been working on:

Here is a link to my new blog on this world: https://tammyssims3cawworlds.wordpress.com/2019/02/08/drifters-isle/

Edit to add:
You can now download version 1 here: https://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=9293815

You can now download version2 here: https://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=9308217
version 2 is updated to include EP's: WA, Amb, LN and Seasons

    Your world looks beautiful <3 Please keep posting the pics.

    As for where we post progress on CAW projects I am not sure. I put mine here because I did not think it was directly related to the CAW tool itself.

    I have a small update to show progress on Drifters Island. I am trying hard not to rush through the rest of version 1, as I am getting anxious to start loading some expansion packs. I am missing ambitions and seasons the most!

    I have a new update with some new pictures of the suburban area of Drifter's Island. Now keep in mind most of the island is still empty even the suburban area, but for these few homes that will be included in version 1

    Thanks Betty :) I may just go ahead and upload this as version 1, as I keep having this strong longing to start loading my EP's back in!

    ... or maybe I will just go ahead and load all of my EP's back in before uploading! decisions! decisions! What do you all think I should do?
  • fxchrfxchrfxchrfxchr Posts: 312 Member
    Hi tammyjo, you talked about having 3 versions of this world, is that still your intention? Personally, I would enjoy an all EP version (since I have all except ITF :) ) but I look forward to whatever version you decide <3
    Firby nurbs!
  • tammyjo329tammyjo329 Posts: 2,725 Member
    Hi fxchrfxchr :smiley: and thank you for your feedback! I did talk about 3 versions.

    I currently am at the point where I want to add the ambition lots and if I upload version 1 with only base plus Island Paradise, then the world will be uploaded with about half or more lots being empty. I need those lots for the expansion lots. I have a whole area empty for fairies, as well as one for witches, and one for werewolves and vamps.

    So if anyone is interested in the base + IP version where over half of the lots are empty, I will go ahead and upload it as version 1. If not I really am itching to get started on the Ambitions lots.

    As long as you are happy why not upload and then you can start work on the all EP version :)
