    Lovely looking world. Good luck with it.

    Quick question if someone doesn't have many store bought worlds will it still work?

    I have to double check with Sandra, but I believe we have a version that uses base game rabbitholes (rather than some of the store ones). The store houses should still be there, just not with any store stuff in them. I say this because I once downloaded a world that had the toy shop from Midnight Hollow, which I didn't have. The toy shop building "shell" was there, just not the toy PC stuff. :D

    As far as I know, other than extensive use of WA and some of the EPs, the rest are just houses and rabbitholes--which, again, I'm pretty sure we will have a version with basegame rabbitholes. :mrgreen:


    If you don't own much store stuff, however, I wouldn't suggest you do the custom version unless you want many of the community lots to have missing store items that are replaced with ugly couches and stuff, haha. But that's why there are two versions, and most likely three versions since those basegame rabbitholes are an option.


    Sandra can explain more on that. :wink:

    Hi Ash! :) Love the outlay of the world, you and your friend are doing a brilliant job. :) The Nile part I really like! :) :thumbup: :thumbup:


    Awe, thank you so much, Christine! Yeah, originally it was just going to be Egypt, but I mentioned how the Nile river was crucial to them for vegetation and so on, so we squeezed it in. I think the pops of green suit it well. :mrgreen:

    Thanks.
    I do have quite a few store bought items and have Hidden Springs, Riverview, Barnacle Bay, Monte Vista and Aurora Skies worlds and all expansion packs and stuff packs apart from Movie Stuff, 70s and Katy Perry Sweet Treats.

    Your world is looking great! :) It looks great how you are doing the different themed areas of it! Each area of the world has great items in it relating to the type of theme!
    It is a great picture update. I enjoyed looking at the pictures! :)

    Hi, everyone! We're getting close to being able to release a beta to the public; sorry for the delay, there were a few issues with CAW on Sandra's PC and we wanted to make sure the world has enough to beta test on. :mrgreen:

    Today, I have photos of the tropical area, the future island, industrial area, swamp area, and a few buildings she's made.


    A view of both the volcano lagoon and the beach area:
    14476611361_e0f1cd7239_o.jpg

    We've added beach chairs so that your sims can lounge out, and there's plenty of space for them to sun-bath, too.
    14293543357_369d86834a_o.jpg

    If you look in the distance, you'll see the IP statue on a little island; there is a swimmable pond, and I believe there will be a small lot to build on.
    14293543347_8773f4c986_o.jpg


    There are two craters we added to the future island: a lava (red) on that has the spawner for meteors (no routing so your Sims won't die, though!), and this crater that is swimmable. I think they're nifty, but I may be a bit biased. :wink:
    14293400288_05b68e3662_o.png
    14204838089_5186b7c5cb_o.jpg

    The tan sand you see in the distance is where the wasteland will be.

    14456889586_a6369f9088_o.png


    Here is the camping area with some trees and terrain paint down; the rock arch has a "special" rock within it. 8)
    14479986665_c1f9abac17_o.png


    We started on the industrial area. This is an abandoned train station; to the right of it, there are cranes, the wharf, and a run-down apartment complex.
    14293364330_f0ba6dce73_o.jpg
    14479986285_0779c825f5_o.jpg


    The bridges you just saw go into the swamp area, which we've started to really develop. This island is the "supernatural" island overall. The circle will be a lake.
    14476610601_a4356de7eb_o.png
    14390442774_956fbae2f8_o.png


    The end of supernatural island is Dragon Valley themed, so we used the Dragon Valley lighthouse. If I remember correctly, Sandra plans to have a lot on the lower section for someone to build on.
    14478710562_29ce1054f0_o.jpg


    Here is a small port that Sandra built--isn't it cute?!
    14478781234_a441768160_o.png


    There are some beach cottages that Sandra also built. I love the colors.
    :mrgreen:

    14500120793_1814395e93_o.jpg
    14293363350_1f46a10992_o.jpg


    We have a surprise "candy" island that implements Katy Perry's stuff. This is a subway that Sandra built.
    14456888576_ca4453256b_o.jpg


    The real Eiffel Tower has an ice rink and such underneath it, so she tried to implement it:
    14293363060_e7f2026e71_o.jpg


    A few scenery shots at night:

    14293399218_807da3dc55_o.jpg
    14293356329_da85bf3bce_o.jpg



    That's all for now. We still have to add some lots, add effects such as fog/smoke and so on. I hope you like them, and we should have a beta released soon! :XD:

    Your world is looking very great! :) It looks great how you have done the area under the Eiffel Tower. The craters on future island look great! The volcano lagoon looks great too! Very nice beach area. The ship and the trees look great there. The colours of the beach cottages are nice.
    All the various areas of the world are looking very nice! :)

    I love it, I love how you've separated everything into all the various areas. I can't wait to test this World, I've always wanted a World with everything in it that I could populate, this is great. Are you going to leave room for Store stuff as well? Hidden Islands etc?

    Hello Illyianna2005,

    Sorry for not checking sooner! I have been very busy building and working on this world.

    It will have lot's of room for whatever you wish to do or build. I placed 5 lots in the water so you can build dive spots or use it for islands.

    It will have two hidden islands and sharks! I am hoping to release a test beata in two weeks.

    I'm not sure yet on the tombs, I'm still working on that idea.
    The world has 500 lots and room for more, I have a low end computer and have played in it for 2 weeks, It seems to be working pretty good so far :D Keep checking back and I will make sure to check the forum more often. Cheers

    No it wont matter, you can still play the world as normal. Katy Perry and If buildings will be in the world.
    they just wont have all the candy stuff on decor, the any IF rocks,tress,windows, doors etc. will be replaced with something you have in the game.

    I AM COUNTING THE DAYS TO BETA-RELEASE BY THIS WEEK END!!!!! Cheers :D

    Hurry, hurry, where is this world? :mrgreen:
    I'm so impatient - I like map and not-so-industrial but not-so-fairy look - however it will host all EP's.
    I can't still find one (CCfree and lagfree) everything world where I would to let stay my sims forever. For this I'm attempting to fight with CAW too. Unable to build something by my self - you and Evermore Falls are hope of my sims.
    Can't wait for 1st beta-release.

    Hello Bily_jednorozec, I used the buildings from ts3 worlds,and built the rest in CAW-Edit in game. It will be ran through custard before I upload it, It will have No mods, No CC and Caps - maybe when I change the color of texture's that's all.

    CAW doesn't work well when you dump custom lots in the world. Ashley has a list of Custom lot's that she plans on putting in her Evermore world. She will post the list so others may use them.

    I am the builder and I like to build while creating in the worlds. It makes it so much easier!! :D

    As far as lag, I haven't had any lag or problems for 2 weeks, Ashley did have lag when she played in the world.

    A 50/50 rate is not bad and not good! It is time to release this, so we can see if the rate will change :D I hope! for the Good :D

    I need beta testers to really!!! test this out and tell me about the bad and good!!!!

    You will see that I still have things to do, I hope it will be a pleasant place to play/live.

    By Fri it will be out!!! :D cheers

    And we are all impatient!!! :wink:

    Hi, Sandra!
    Thank you so much for the answer ... excited then about friday and I'll try it to test it. And maybe my daughter too (she fights with me for my PC, because another PC don't handles Sims 3 after EP07) - I have shown her this topic and she wants play this world too. :-)
    Let us know, please, which store content will be required (a part of worlds), then I'll install it (I do not trust "Store Items Used" on Exchange page and now I'm building with fabbric clean folder).

    Is there some way how to get fps down while in EIG? I'm a little bit worried about burning my graphic card again.
