Overview

This tutorial describes how to import a resource (UNKN 0x296A6258) into a custom world to change the world characteristics.

For technical information about this process, or to learn more about the world characteristic and locale types, please see this thread.

For questions and discussion about this tutorial, please post in this thread.

Required Tools

This tutorial used S3Pe. Please download the latest version from Simlogical.

Please download the resource which you require, and extract the file from the archive (Zip file). The options are:

  • City. This flags the world as a custom city. The world will have a city icon in the 'choose a world to play' menu, and will be subject to city work hours and city opportunities. The 'Traffic Manager' will spawn 'fake' taxis, and food trucks will be fully functional. Please note that flagging a world as a city may produce undesirable effects when used in conjunction with certain mods, such as Nraas Traveler. Download City resource
  • France Locale. This flags the world as a French Suburb. The world will have French Music in world view; French names, clothing and hairstyles for NPCs and spawned townies; French nationality trait for all occupants; correct icons for locale zoned lots such as Landmark tombs; a spawned NPC 'Special goods vendor'; full functionality for relic and general goods registers; French food available from the food register; all NPCs will walk to destinations instead of using vehicles; the default mode of transport for playable sims is moped instead of taxi. Download France resource
  • China Locale. This flags the world as a Chinese Suburb. The world will have Chinese Music in world view; Chinese names, clothing and hairstyles for NPCs and spawned townies; Chinese nationality trait for all occupants; correct icons for locale zoned lots such as Landmark tombs; a spawned NPC 'Special goods vendor'; full functionality for relic and general goods registers; Chinese food available from the food register; all NPCs will walk to destinations instead of using vehicles; the default mode of transport for playable sims is bicycle instead of taxi. Download China resource
  • Egypt Locale. This flags the world as an Egyptian Suburb. The world will have Egyptian Music in world view; Egyptian names, clothing and hairstyles for NPCs and spawned townies; Egyptian nationality trait for all occupants; correct icons for locale zoned lots such as Landmark tombs; a spawned NPC 'Special goods vendor'; full functionality for relic and general goods registers; Egyptian food available from the food register; all NPCs will walk to destinations instead of using vehicles; the default mode of transport for playable sims is moped instead of taxi. Download Egypt resource

Instructions

Step 1:

Backup any files you wish to change! Make a safe copy so that if anything goes wrong, you can revert.


Step 2:

Open the world you wish to edit in S3Pe. You can either open a packed world (for example, an installed world or one of the EA worlds) or a CAW unpacked world (from your CAW UserToolData\ Worlds folder).


Step 3:

Click Resource> Import From file.

Step 4:

Browse to the downloaded, extracted resource and click 'open'.

CityRes 02.jpg


Step 5:

Check 'replace Duplicates' and click 'ok'.

CityRes 03.jpg


Step 6:

Click File> Save and then close S3Pe.

CityRes 04.jpg


Your world is now flagged!


Notes

For flagging your world as a combination of the above, for example as an Egyptian city, please see this thread.

Flagging a world as a vacation world is not recommended, as this will make the world un-selectable from the 'choose a world to play' menu. If you wish to make a vacation world, either make a default replacement (in which case import UNKN 0x296A6258 from your desired EA vacation world) or else use a mod, such as Nraas Traveler.

Please note that this method is experimental, and there may be adverse effects that have not yet been discovered.

The world type may also be edited with SuperCAW; please see this thread for details.
