Saaqartoq (English)

This is a new version of Saaqartoq which includes content from the Expansions that were released after the world was finished. It includes several new lots, some changes in already existent ones and a big improvement of the terrain and the atmosphere thanks to the new mountains and lightning files:


Saaqartoq is a quiet town located on Greenland’s southwestern coast. It’s a fishing town surrouded by fjords, icebergs, tundra landscape and glaciers. It’s the perfect destination if you don’t mind the cold temperatures but you want to enjoy a quiet life in one of the most unspoiled places in the world.

World Size: 2048x2048 (large)
Number of Residential Lots: 30
Number of Community Lots: 43
Rabbitholes Included: All them except the Diner, the Movie Studio and the buildings from Into the Future
File Weight: 81 MB (unpopulated), 82 MB (populated)
Routing checked: Yes
Spawners: All the Base Game ones
Empty Lots' sizes: 30x20 (2), 20x20 (3), 20x25, 22x18, 18x18, 26x18, 22x14.

PLUS: The world includes recolors and custom lightning files (from Aurora Skies and Gelina). 

The world doesn't include any CC/Store Content.

The populated versions of Saaqartoq include 13 families created by me and 3 families created by ClayworldButtonsginger and Lionpaws, thanks to them for helping. To see detailed info about each family included  CLICK HERE



*I've practically only used the objects from the last 5 expansions in the picture in the new lots in this updated version. I recommend to have all the EPs, but missing any of the latest 5 will not be a problem.

  1. I don't seem to be able to download the populated version of Saaqartoq :( I download & install the populated pack and when I play the game, nobody's there!
    Apart from that, the world looks great and I simply love the idea! Great job ;)

    1. Hi! I've just downloaded and installed the English populated version to see if the sims were missing, but they were there. I selected a family and everything went just fine.
      I don't know what's happening in your case... Are you sure you downloaded the populated version? I don't understand it :/

  2. I don't understand why I can't download it. I tried the 4 links but it always fail on the installation :(

    1. I was able to download Barcelona and Emporda but not Saaqartoq, so sad, it's my favorite :( Maybe there is a problem with the links or OneDrive?

    2. Hmm... but where do you have the problem, when you try to download from OneDrive? Or when you try to install the world through the launcher?
      If it's the first one, maybe you can try it with another browser. If it's the second one, do you have all the required EPs? Do you have any mod or bad CC that could be causing it?

    3. I have the problem when I try to install through the lancher it's said " failed" and i have all the EPs required and no bad CC. Exactly as the person below except that even the Spanish version don't work !

    4. I tried with mozzila and edge and it's doesn't work ;__;

    5. Ah ! The spanish version work this time ! .. I don't know why..

  3. hi :] i am not able to install this world using the launcher, i have no idea why. i have all the expansions and stuff packs required. i do have mods and lots of cc but i dont see how that could affect the installation of a world? i have other custom worlds installed as well, and saaqartoq isnt even that heavy in comparison... i hope someone can help, i really want to play this world :c

    1. forgot to add: it says "failed" when i try to install using the launcher.

    2. update: i was able to install the Spanish version. It's just the English version that doesn't work in my case.

    3. Did you do anything different this time? Everything seems correct for you to install the world, maybe it's just a matter of trying... I hope you can figure it out! Good luck :)

  4. I've reuploaded the English versions to Dropbox, please try downloading again and let me know if it works this time :)

    1. Well, whatever you did with it worked great for me! I was not able to install the world before and forgot the whole thing. But today I tried it again and it worked! Thank you!

  5. By the way, is it possible to upload CAW files for this world? I would like to make some minor changes (like to add a couple of lots, so that they will have an address) just for myself. Guess some people are looking forward to it too, and they won't reupload it anywhere.

    1. Hi, you can edit any world you want in CAW. You just need to follow one of these methods: http://modthesims.info/t/469942
      Let me know if it works for you :)

  6. Hello am sorry idk if this the right place to ask but i downloaded your world and it's Amazing Thank you sooo much <3 But i have a problem the bridges aren't showing up in my game and my sim having problem going to the other side what am i missing for it??

    1. Hi :) I used two kinds of bridges: one from Late Night, and two from World Adventures. I guess you miss one of this expansions. If you do, you will find a lot more objects that are not showing up.

  7. Thanks for this beautiful world . I love it so much . It will be my favorite ^^ and im so happy because of the houses . They are pretty ant creative . I like the way how the horses can live under the house :D i need it so much for my sims .

  8. Hey, I don't know why but the download button isn't showing up. Im kinda knew to this website so I might be going right past it. But I absolutely love this world. If you could maybe let me know where the download button is it would be a great help. Thank you, have a nice day.

    1. Hi, just below the requirements you have the different download links, click on the one you want and you will be directed to Dropbox/OneDrive, where the world file is hosted and you can download it easily from there :)

  9. Hi! May I ask you how do you get the aurora in your world? :)

    1. Hi! I got the lightning files (INI files and colour ramps) from here: https://cawster.wordpress.com/2013/04/04/aurora-skies/

  10. Hello Nilxis...First thank you for sharing your beautiful worlds.I wish I could be so creative.I have downloaded Saarqartoq(populated and unpopulated)and try to import them into Caw but it doesn't works.Spe says:
    Could not import all resources - aborting.

    1. Hi Muriel, thanks for your comment :)
      Are you trying to import the sims3pack files directly? Or even a converted .package file?
      If so, you need to do it differently. There is only one way that I know of for editing premade worlds in CAW. You can find it in this tutorial on Modthesims: http://modthesims.info/t/469942

      I hope it helps! Let me know if it works :)

    2. Hi Nilxis,thank you for your answer...I know that tuto and have already edited many worlds this way without any problems.
      Fortunately I found a way on the Web to avoid the error message and import it into Caw:

      PSA: Importing worlds into CAW via s3pe ‘import from package’ doesn’t work anymore because a patch broke it

      S3PE will throw an error and cannot import all of the files, aborting it prematurely.

      Workaround for this is the following:

      Open the world you want to import in S3PE. Make a folder on your desktop labeled ‘import this’ or similar.

      Go to the menu Resource > Export > To File… and save the contents of the world package into the ‘import this’ folder.

      Once that’s done close it and open up your blank world file from CAW.

      Go to the menu Resource > Import > From File… and go into the ‘import this’ folder and select ALL of the files in that folder (you can just ctrl+A it).

      Import as usual through the import dialogue.

      Importing from a package itself doesn’t work anymore because S3PE can no longer access all of the resource names. Even if it did save it instead of aborting it, it’d have been a borked file unopenable in CAW.

      Perhaps it will help other people with the same problem...

      It's a real pleasure to find and play with such beautiful worlds without CC...Thank you again...I wish the best for you.

    3. Nice to see you worked it out! And thanks for this info, that's very helpful :) All the best to you too!

  11. Thank you a lot for this one:D This is my all time favourite world to play so far. It's very unique with it's landscape and terrain paints and you managed not to make it too dark (I love how the light changes during the day and night, especially that pinkis hue, much like in Sunlit Tides). I constantly change that 'inthemiddleofnowhere' campsite to a house for my sims (best lot with a view I've seen in TS3). Great idea with the tomb in the ruins. Have you considered making a world of New Zealand in the future (like some small village settled in a certain landscape, sucha big map)? I think it could look fantastic.

    1. Hi, thank you so much for your comment! (And sorry for the late response!)
      Ah that lot is a great place for a house, it sure does have great views :)
      About a New Zealand world, I don't know what I will do in the future, but I don't think I'll go back to making worlds based on real places. But New Zealand has lots of amazing landscapes, so maybe I'll find some inspiration for a future fantasy world, or some part of it.
