921 Thanks  Thanks     137 Favourited
NOTE: IP patch that made ocean swimmable, causes random flooding on basements built on the lots. This is unavoidable, and something I won't be fixing on this island. You can still build on the island, use it for testing, etc. but basements are unfortunately randomly "broken".

Some of you might remember my Builder's Island. I wanted to make a new version, in which you can decide the lotsizes yourselves, so I proudly present you...

Builder's Island - Do it yourself!!

BIDIY is a small island with two separate building sides. At first sight it looks pretty dull and empty, maybe cause it is The catch is, that you can make it your own. One day you might want to build on a 30x30 lot, one day to a 64x64, and some other day to a 10x10. BIDIY makes it possible

How to use:
- Install the world
- Launch the game
- Select new game and choose Builder's Island - DIY
- Wait few seconds that it loads (Load time varies, it can be 2 seconds, or 10, depends on your stats.)
- Go to Edit town-mode
- Place the lot size(s) you want
- Start building

- If you are not happy with the lotsize(s) you chose, simply delete it/them and place another one(s).

Here is example on max lotsizes per side:

Here is an example of different lotsizes placed on the world:

Technical info:
- Mapsize used: Small
- Layers: 2, World layer and Junk
- Terrainpaints used: 7
- Plants used: 3 different types
- Objects used: 1 type
- Load time should be 2-10 seconds from Choose map to Play (Depends on your stats.)
- The building areas are perfectly flat. You can put a maxsize of 30x30 lot to the smaller side, and maxsize 64x64 to the bigger side.

Some thanks, well, actually one:
I used Martines CAW Textures megapack when I made the world. Terrainpaints used are Rock granite base, Rock granite detail A and Rock granite detail B. These are automatically included to the world so you don't need to download them separatelly.

Thanks Martine for these amazing terrainpaints!!

Note about compatibility:
The world was built in CAW version, with Base game, WA and Ambitions installed, with patch 4.2. The world SHOULD be Basegame compatible, and you SHOULD need at least patch 1.12/2.7/3.3/4.0 to use!

P.S. Like original Builder's Island, this too can be used for many things...
Fast access to Building, CAS and Object testing!!!

P.S.S. This world is not ment for playing. There are no spawners, rabbitholes or additional landscaping that would make it enjoyable. I mean you CAN play on it, but that's not what it's made for...
