Default Converting save file into a world
So I was following a particular tutorial to doing what the title implies. Though I'm stuck and confused at Step #1, because I don't know the height of what the world of the choice I picked (not mine, It's downloaded from somwhere) and what file I should import. Help?

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Neat tutorial. There was some guy in here (@Shimo815) a while back who lost a world he created and was wondering if he can recover the world through his save. Maybe he can still use this.

As for your question, sorry, I never used CAW before.

Sucks. I really want to convert it so I can turn into a city instead of a suburb :/

Just wait a bit, I'm sure someone with CAW experience will come in.

Only the creator knows the height and I wouldn't know of a way to get that information from the files. So it's trial and error. Most people use height of 300 so I'd start there. If the terrain looks a bit off, try 200 etc. Unless it's a really flat tropical island world, then you could start with 100 and work your way up.

May I ask why you want to convert the world from save and not the world itself?

Because the world started was empty, and now that the save includes buildings (just clubs, bars and lounges) and playable sims in their resided house that is the only residential land in the world, I realized I need to change that into a city (since commercial lots empty, no fake traffic, etc.) without having to go through replotting down lots down again and evict the family.

Thanks Nort. I'll try contacting and inquire from the creator fir that detail.

Have you already played that save? Because it might very well be worth the test to see whether changing the world itself to city might actually apply properly to an unplayed save.
This is still Sunset Valley, isn't it?

No, a new one. Though I might try that-- once how I figure out how though. Gosh, instructions are unclear, help?

ETA: I think it worked! The Save file seems to have changed the logo/icon of a city and a random taxi pull over near my home lot. I'll see where this goes, so a big thanks to you!
