The farm 3. grain hopper and railway tracks for CAW

A new set of 3 items:
1. grain hopper
2. straight railway track
3. curve 30 degrees railway track. All found under Decor / Misc. Decor and cost 0.

This is a hard job to lay the tracks down. Make sure that the XYZ co-ordinates match where ever you lay the railway tracks. I've laid mine on a level section of my game.

You need Ambitions and to place the packages in both the mods/packages (Sims3 ) directory and in the "The Sims 3 Create a World Tool/ Packages" directory for the 3 items to show in your game. There is an earlier post explaining how to install items in CAW.
Importing packages into CAW

Near the silo I raised the road in CAW to go over the railway line, but near the cooling towers no matter what I did, I couldn't get the road level above the railway line so I "tilted" the railway tracks before and after the road. This way is quite time consuming and if avoidable, don't do it. Just that CAW is a real pain in the "$%£" to use.

Just to let you know, a locomotive will be available soon, a tunnel, a warning sign with a flashing light as a "Railway crossing" and silo connection pipes to the train wagons. Other items will follow in the future.

NB. I laid the tracks near the silo " in between" the 2 lots. In CAW you can't place objects on lots.



  1. This is awesome! Do these only work for CAW, or can we use them in our regular games as decor objects, too?

  2. Hi feelrain, thank U. I think that they should under Décor/Misc Décor also. If so you can place them inside a lot. I just don't see it looking good that way. Carlos
