The Sims 3 Create A World tool (beta) allows registered users of EA's latest life simulation to craft their Sims' landscape from the ground up. Players can choose terrain patterns, plant trees and vegetation, pave roads, or place accent items like lighthouses and water towers, either starting from scratch or using templates based on Sunset Valley and Riverview, the two pre-made locations in the game. Once their creation is complete, they can share their worlds with the world via The Sims 3 Exchange.
Advanced world designers can import new textures for their worlds using tools like Photoshop, so there should be some interesting new locations popping up on the Exchange in the coming days.
