edited July 27 in World Builders
I am taking moonlight falls and transforming it. I want the vibe to still be there. I will be making a empty world as well as a populated save file for those who want it. the problem is I use CC and I am unsure how others would like that.

What should I expect in Moonlight Valley compared to Moonlight falls?
♥ More lots,both empty and filled
♥ slightly improved beach
♥ Revamped or replaced lots + more things to do

Suggestions are welcome

Lake is back and with a lot of lots added from @Hidehi's gallery including th one she made for my world :)

    Hello,

    I like your idea :)

    The beach could definitely do with some improvement. I could be very rude and name some pretty grotty British seaside resorts which the beach in Moonlight Falls currently reminds me of :)

    I think some of the lots in Moonlight Falls are lovely, it is the interiors which let them down so some revamping might be an excellent idea.

    If you are offering an empty version then plenty of lots for building would appeal to quite a few people.

    I don't use cc but I am aware that having too much in your game is likely to affect the performance of EIG if you are planning to use the CAW tool.

    Good Luck.

    @Bettyboop55
    Well the save file would be the only thing with cc. the unpopulated world would not

    installing store content into my clean folder I made for the project. I have decided to make the save folder cc free aside from sliders. as some sliders are not able to be found anymore I will upload a file with them inside and the credit goes to their creators

    Following! Look forward to seeing what you do. Can I ask how you got Moonloght Falls into CAW? I know about the tutorial thread on MTS but that’s not worked for me. You don’t have to say all the directions, just point me to a tutorial if you know of one. I wanted to edit Sunset Valley many moons ago but finally gave up.

    you would need create a world installed. then you need to go to open world once in the CAW. because I think riverview and sunset valley come preloaded with CAW :) is that what you wanted?

    You will need to make sure you download the correct version of CAW which matches your game version i.e. 1.67 or 1.69.

    You are correct both Sunset Valley and Riverview come with CAW but these are basic height maps.

    Ah yes i just checked and they are the light version. But if one searches CAW files for sunset valley they will find a download link

    Looks good so far.

    In the past I have remodeled most of the residential lots in Moonlight Falls but I didn't take it into CAW. Looking forward to seeing what you do.

    I am in the process of redoing Midnight Hallow. I'm remodeling all the lots in town replacing haunted landscape and terrain paint and recoloring the exterior and interior. I have also done a little removal/remodel of walls and objects. I've only done 4 residential lots so far. When I'm ready I will try bringing MH into CAW and then change out the lots. I've only played once in Midnight Hallow and it was too dark for me, although I guess it was just fine for my vampire. :)

    Any way for you to get Moonlight Valley to not look so dark? :p

    Looks awesome what you have so far! :star:

    Personally I'd remove a tiny bit from the left hill there, the top row of trees, but other than that it looks GREAT! :star:

    Love what you are doing especially the beach. We also have trees growing up our mountainsides but I don't think you have gone overboard on them so far. Besides in a lot of cultures, particularly in Europe, densely wooded areas are associated with dark and mysterious events which fits the Supernatural theme of the world.

    @Bettyboop55 I am glad you like it ^^ I installed store content again on my clean file that I use for CAW. hope it works without problems

  • Bettyboop55Bettyboop55 Posts: 2,572 Member
    If you are like me then you probably have lots of store content. For some reason EIG is very sensitive to this. I would ask in the Game Tools section if EIG doesn't open or keeps crashing. I found a way round my content problem but it was a fluke because I am IT illiterate and would hate to give you duff information.

    Good Luck.

    indeed it is crashing when I go to edit in game.

    What do you think I should do? I can add the dive lots,export the world,then add the lots I wanted in a save or find a way around the crashing and put the lots in that way.

    This is looking really good so far! :) Love all the trees you've added. I don't think you've gone overboard, I think it looks ideal!
    With regard to EIG crashing; is all the Store Content you have installed going to be used for this world? What I've been doing is only adding the content I'll use in that world to the folder. So maybe you could uninstall some of it for the time being?
