World of WIPs - All Neighbourhoods Bulldozed

Having problems taking a vacation?


World of WIPs (Work In Progress) is a save file with all neighbourhoods to date.
Each world is 100% bulldozed to give you ample building space (except for Strangerville, the game does not allow you to bulldoze the secret lab).
It is not possible to change the onsen in Mt Komorebi to any other lot type.

Even though this save file includes all worlds from all packs, apparently save files will work whether you own those packs or not, your game will just ignore the worlds you don't own.
It will not unlock worlds you don't own from packs you haven't purchased.


INSTALLATION
Install the save file here: Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Saves

I renamed the file Slot_00000099 so as to not overwrite any of your other saves.

Worlds bulldozed:
Brindleton Bay
Del Sol Valley
Forgotten Hollow
Granite Falls
Magnolia Promenade
Newcrest (this is empty by default)
Oasis Springs
San Myshuno
Selvodorada
Strangerville
Sulani
Willow Creek
Windenburg
Glimmerbrook
Britechester
Evergreen Harbor
Mt Komorebi
Henford-On-Bagley

Did you install all of the included files? Not just 1 of them for example? And extract them all into the folder?

You should install all of these into your save folder, and then when you click load game from TS4 in-game menu, my file should be there to load.

I don't think so. Because this isn't a mod. It's just a save file. I don't know why it won't work for you. Nobody else seems to be having problems :/

I've had a bit of a Google, try what this post says: https://forums.thesims.com/en_us/di...-not-showing-up

Also, I just read back up and in a previous post you said:

My file won't unlock worlds you haven't purchased from EA, your game will ignore the extra worlds from my file that you don't own the pack for. They will stay locked. You should be able to just load my file from the in-game load menu and enter any worlds you own, and they should all be empty.

From my view (as a dumb user who is not a sophisticated modder) this is how it works : I unzipped and put the six files into the "saves" folder of my game. Then I launched the game, clicked on Load Game and WORLD OF WIPS was available to load, in my case as the second one in the first row of My Saved Games.

Quick question, was this made with Seasons installed/activated? As in, does this save start in a particular season, or will we be given the option to choose a season to start in upon loading the save?
Edit: Also, you don't need every version of the save file--just the most recent one will get the save in player's games. So in future updates, you can trim down the number of files in the download. (Less room for error that way)

Seasons was active, and I believe it's in Summer. I always start saves in Summer. If you want to change it and you're okay with using cheats you can use any of these:
Summer: seasons.set_season 0
Autumn/Fall: seasons.set_season 1
Winter: seasons.set_season 2
Spring: seasons.set_season 3

Okay thanks, I included everything because I've never installed nor uploaded a save file before, so wasn't sure which specific file(s) I'd need. Felt like including all was the safest option.

Didn't even know we had those cheats, but cool. You may consider disabling Seasons through your launch options next time, since I believe it throws an error message for people without Seasons who try to load the save. Not sure what other issues it causes other than the error message, but it certainly warns that there might be corruptions when I accidentally load a Seasons save with Seasons disabled.

Yep, better safe than sorry! I've done a bit of testing with my own save file upload here on MTS. Definitely backup the files and test it before you delete anything, though.

Sorry, I've never seen that.

I don't speak German so I think it would have been difficult for me to stumble across that when browsing, as the site is in German.
I bulldozed everything for my own use, then thought others might appreciate it too as a time saver. So they don't have to go through bulldozing everything too, so I uploaded it.

Well, @Bienchen...empty worlds are not only offered by you ...I know at least one more creator who offers this as well. And I don't think it will be a problem if other simmers do such a clean safe , too.

No matter, thank you very much Teknikah for your work.

Best regards from Austria

This happens because I bulldozed everything.

To have the option to take a vacation you need to - have at least one lot in either or both of the vacation worlds - MAKE SURE IT IS SET AS "Rental" OTHERWISE IT DOESN'T FUNCTION. If using a gallery lot, place it first then change the lot type to "rental"
