650+ FOLLOWER GIFT!
More photos can be found here :)
I’ve been wanting to get into world creation for a while, but I was always a bit put-off CAW. Finally, I decided to knuckle down and learn how to actually use the darn thing. This world was kinda a means for me to test all the functions and prove to myself that I’m not 100% useless!
So this world here is called Luthi, a teeny tiny valley (medium map) nestled in the middle of the (Swiss….inspired) alps. It consists of only one little shack, and is totally isolated by the mountain ranges! I designed it to be used as a travel location using Nraas’ Traveler Mod because of the nature of it (no rabbit holes or other buildings), but there’s nothing to stop it from being used as a normal home world.
Actually, to accommodate this I’ve included another version of Luthi with empty lots already placed, as it’s a lot easier to do that in CAW. There are around 15 placed ranging from 15x15 to 50x50. They’re all set to residential but do as you wish! Bearing in mind that there are no roads, I can’t guarantee everything will run smoothly as a homeworld, but again - do as you wish.
I have all EPs and there could be content from all of them, but specifically I have heavily used content from LN, Ambitions, Pets, Supernatural and IP. If you don’t have an EP the world should still run, but some objects will be replaced and it may look odd. If you do this, be prepared to do a lot of shift-click-deleting! A warning now, the shack contains a LOT of Supernatural content.
You will need to be at the latest patch (1.55) for this to work.
There are three items of CC included in the shack, one is a shelf from the Store (Country Living set), the fridge from Aurora skies and a medieval stove which I stupidly can’t find a link to. These will be replaced if you don’t have them. There is also a custom terrain paint for the snow by Martine - thanks, Martine!
Ummm, anything else? I’ve tested this for a day and there was no discernible lag, though I am a newbie to CAW so if there are any problems I’ll be happy to try and fix them. Also, on my final playtest I did notice one stupid floating tree hanging about, but by then I had already done all my exporting. If this bothers you, open the cheats bar, type in testingcheatsenabled true and then ctrl-shift-click on it, object - delete it. Problem solved! I also highly reccommend using Brntwaffles’ Moonrise Kingdom lighting mod (with Aurora Skies water)…it’s really gorgeous!
A tag of ‘Luthi’ or ‘Crimsonium’ would be lovely if you’re using this, I’d love to see it (especially in the fog!). It’d be really good if you didn’t claim this as your own or re-upload it, y’know? Haha.

(WARNING: YOU CAN ONLY HAVE ONE VERSION!!)
I’ve also included the shack seperately in case anybody was interested in it without the world.
EDIT: I forgot to say…the edges of the world are meant to be purely decorative. I’ve made the mountains and about half the forest unroutable, but…don’t go sending your simmies up there. They will either run into routing issues or it will just look crap! And, er, sorry this post is so long.
