The Sims team released a new Sims 3 update via Origin that addresses the Create-a-World bug from the last patch. Players who updated to Patch 1.69 found that their version of CAW was not working, and this patch fixes the problem. Once you have updated your game, click here to download the newest version of The Sims 3 Create-a-World.
Update: 1/5/16 – Create-a-World Patch
❗ ONLY USE THIS VERSION OF CAW IF YOU UPDATED TO 1.69.36.0240 Today we had a small update to the Origin Client for The Sims 3 that will enable the users who took part in our last Origin client update to now use the updated CAW tool.
I want to reiterate that this version of the CAW tool is ONLY for those who have downloaded the Origin update (that means that in order to use this version of the CAW tool you need to have the previous Origin Client updated PLUS the client update we released today otherwise this tool will not work for you.)
After you download the client update please visit this link to download the updated CAW tool: http://lvlt.thesims3.com//content/global/downloads/caw/ts3caw.exe
If you did NOT take part in the previous update and did not download the update today please use this version of the CAW tool:
We will be updating the tools page on TheSims3.com with this new CAW tool soon and will update this page once it has been.
