This is a completely empty save file for all worlds except for Batuu (I'm still boycotting that one and refuse to purchase). I was looking for an existing save file that was up to date, but I couldn't find one. The closest save file I could find is by TheMidniteTech, located here. I picked up where that save file left off, bulldozing the worlds that have been released since that was last updated.

The only household that exists in the save file is my doppelganger, who is located in New Crest / Valenrise, on an empty lot. Feel free to delete her.

I have also custom named all the worlds in the save file, which I'll list below. If you want the world names back to their original titles, or want to create your own world names, it's pretty easy to do so. This article will show you how to go about doing so, and all you need is TheSimsStudio.

Original World Names (Alphabetical) and their Custom Name
Brindleton Bay - Ruthermond
Britechester - Clernoit
Del Sol Valley - Castalajara
Evergreen Harbor - Villeurleme
Forgotten Hollow - Grimwind
Glimmerbrook - Magehelm
Henford on Bagley - Midmere
Magnolia Promenade - Sarroux
Mt. Komorebi - Mauciennes *
New Crest - Valenrise
Oasis Springs - Leoverda
San Myshuno - Castelavera
Strangerville - Caros
Sulani - Catalona
Willow Creek - Mythenhelm
Windenburg - Windenmere

* Please note that the onsen lot in Mt. Komorebi cannot be changed to any other venue type; the lot itself is tied to gameplay actions and so it would break the skiing feature if it were to be changed.

It's also a good idea to make a backup of any save files that you currently have; you never know what might go wrong. It should be fairly straight forward to install this save file. All you have to do is:
1) Download the zip file
2) Extract the .save file
3) Copy/paste the .save file into your Sims 4 saves folder
4) Start up the game, and choose Load; the save file should should up as "Empty Worlds".
5) Enjoy a bulldozed world for a fresh start

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you!
Will these worlds show uo if you do not have all the Ep's?
Will you see a icon for "Empty Worlds" on the loading screen?

Someone once said you can never have too many worlds. That's probably not true, but I appreciate when I can get an extra one to start over again with. Thanks.

My simple answer:
I honestly don't know the exact answers to this. Judging from my own game, and the only world that I don't have being Batuu, I don't believe the worlds do show up as that's the way EA has it setup.

My most educated answer to this based on what I know of The Sims 4:
The only thing this save file does is give you a new save that you access via the main screen by hitting "Load" instead of "New". Within the save file, all the worlds have completely empty lots, but you'll only be able to access the ones that you have bought the DLC for. Otherwise, the world will not be available to you, with no icon showing up for it. I would imagine it's some sort of lock/hidden feature of the games coding and they'll only be visible if you've bought the DLC and installed it. This save file isn't going to bypass any of that and make the world show up.

Nope! When you drop it into your saves folder, it will then show up as its own world in-game. I do however suggest, as always, to keep a backup of your current worlds/saves before doing any modding.
