Empty Lots (with Lotza Stuff)--UPDATED 04/15/18

This public forum is about sharing whole TS4 Worlds--yes...it can be done. There's a special tutorial in this forum, to help you do just that, if you'd like to.

Empty Lots (with Lotza Stuff)--UPDATED 04/15/18

Postby lindawing » October 13th, 2014, 3:46 am

There's a tutorial about how to either upload or download/use a saved TS4 world, HERE.


There's also now a video tutorial about this process on my YouTube channel--Grandma's Gone Gaming (see the embedded video at the bottom of this post).


This is a completely EMPTY new world for TS4. Each lot (both residential and community, for all the neighborhoods) have been emptied of buildings and Sims, and renamed EMPTY. In the newest versions of this world, all community lots have been changed to Residential. Of course, you may also always change the type of ANY lot on any TS4 map. In any case...there is nothing built on any of these lots, as you can see. I did this initially for myself, since I hate having to bulldoze lots every time I want to just build something new!

Lotza Stuff is the ONLY Sims currently in this world. The only reason she's there, is because the world has to have at least one Sim attached, in order to be a viable world. So I created Lotza for this reason, and made sure all NPCs were deleted, before I saved the world.

Here's how Lotza looks (she reminds me quite a lot of my granddaughter, Crystyl, actually)...

Lotza is a young adult. She wants to be The Curator, and has the innate trait of being a collector. She's also a bit of a goofball. Yet she's both a geek and loves the outdoors! That makes for a pretty strange combination, which should make her quite interesting to play, if you want to use her for a test Sim, for instance. ;-) If not, you can always delete her once you make your own Sims for the world, or after the NPCs begin to fill in.

UPDATED 04/15/2018

Here are eight versions of the file to download. All of the previous versions have the community lots changed to Generic. Starting with the two latest versions, all lots are Residential...ready for you to change at will. All lot names have been changed to "EMPTY," and all lot descriptions have been emptied (beginning with the latest one...I had forgotten to do that on part of the previous upload).

Because all of the neighborhoods have been emptied of all but the hidden Lots, if you plan to use this world to build things in San Myshuno, you will ALSO need to download some files that I have uploaded to the Gallery, unless you have already saved these special "rooms" into your own Library. They are the SIX Elevators and their accessories for the multi-level apartments. You should download them ALL, so you have them when you need them.

To download them in-game, open the Gallery, search for my EA ID (lindawing), then scroll down until you see all six of the "PENTHOUSE STUFF" files, and grab them from there. They will go into your Library, and then be available in Saved Rooms, for you to use.

To download them when you're NOT in the game, Go to the Online Gallery ( https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery ), and SIGN IN. Then do the following steps:

(1) Click the BROWSE tab.
(2) Pull down the menu at the left side of the search box, and choose EA ID.
(3) Type in my ID (lindawing)
(4) Choose the Category: Room
(5) Under the Advanced pull-down tab, be sure that "Maxis Curated is NOT checked.
(6) Click SEARCH (far right)
(7) You'll see all of the "PENTHOUSE STUFF" files pop up (plus one apartment I saved).
(8) Click the "Add to my Downloads" button for each one.
(9) When you go into the game the next time, they will all have been added to your Saved Rooms in the BUILD menu.

Be sure you read the tutorial I linked in the big red note at the top, or watch the video embedded below. This world's file name is "Slot_0000000a.save," so you probably do NOT have a file like that in your saves, which makes it very easy. ;-) :hooray:

I've created a TS4 World Saving & Sharing Tutorial on Grandma's Gone Gaming (my YouTube channel). The video can be found in my following YouTube Playlist...

I believe there is another part now, but can't remember for sure. I'll check on that, later.
