Create a World

A big THANK YOU to all of you who have been posting comments on my creations in my absence! 

I know, I know....I made all these promises about making at least one item a month at some point last year, but, well, I couldn't predict that the Create a World tool was going to be made at the time and, naturally, it has consumed me since I decided to actually dive into it around the beginning of this year. So, yeah, that's where I've been. 

How many of you out there are also experimenting with this tool? I'm enjoying it, learning a lot, and CERTAINLY can't wait for my world to be complete, but my GOD, I wish I knew about some things the first time through. I just discovered, after months of hard work on the world I wanted, that my world was too small to allow for the camera and Sim routing to work the way I wanted it to (meaning where the camera can/can't go and where Sims can/can't walk). This resulted in a completely new start on a new world this week. Yeah, it's sad after all the work I already did, but I can't say some good hasn't come out of this. I actually think I like the terrain of World #2 a LOT better, and I made sure to do the majority of both my camera- and Sim-routing early on in the process before even starting to lay down my roads. Now I know exactly what my Sims are going to see, where they'll be able to go, and better yet, where my roads will actually be able to fit within routing boundaries. There will no doubt be a little tweaking once the roads are laid down, since I will probably have to adjust some terrain to make sure my roads are smooth, but the tweaking will be minimal.

As I said, I've been learning a lot. :) 

So out of curiosity.....

1) What kinds of things would you want to see in a new world? Certain lot sizes? Different terrain paint? Etc., etc.

2) If you are also using this tool, what have your challenges been?

Keeping the roads smoothed out has been one of my challenges...and trying to test in game as I have had to uninstall..I'm a bit worried about uploading my newest test, as I will probably have to uninstall again...but hey it's been fun...oh, and I made an island, so putting all the waves on has been extrmemly tiring and dull \:D Good luck with your world \:\) I've got pics of mine on my blog \;\)
