This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Many would think Egypt is a place of relics and ancient history, but these days you'll find that there's more than antiquity. A modern paradise has risen from the sands. With the use of state of the art technology and the funding of the richest Sims, Setra was founded. Among the ancient pyramids of old now lies a modern settlement, welcoming all who are drawn to its gleam.

A large desert world, Setra combines the features of Late Night with the aspects of suburban life. Exotic and exciting, it should offer something for every simmer out there.
  • Map Size: Largest (2048x2048)
  • Map height: Highest
  • World type: City, like Bridgeport. This means different work times and no wildlife in the form of wild horses/deer/raccoons. You will still see unicorns and strays.
  • Spawn Points: All basegame spawners + expansion spawners (AMB, LN and PETS), except the World Adventures variants. I decided to keep their location-specific exclusivity.
  • Game requirements: World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Pets and game update 1.29 (from 12/14/11).

Installation instructions:

Thanks to Armiel and Simsample for this, I borrowed it from their threads.
  • Make a folder to any location you can easily find - desktop for example
  • Download all 9 files in this thread and save them to the folder you just created
  • Right click on the first file and select "Extract here..."
  • When prompted, browse the next file by finding the folder they are in and selecting the next file asked for
  • Repeat until all files are extracted
  • Copy the sims3pack you got and move it to your documents/Electronic arts/Sims 3/Downloads
  • There, double click on the file and let launcher complete the install process
  • Play and enjoy!

If extracting won't work, try renaming each file to 1,2,3... etc. If for some reason this doesn't work for you, or you're too lazy to go through this process (Don't lie!) you can also download it through the exchange.


Thanks to everyone who helped me test the world.
Thanks to Twallan for this MasterController, DebugEnabler and Porter mods.
Thanks to kiwi_tea for his population tutorial here.
Thanks to Simsample and the other people in this thread for figuring out how to mark a world as a city.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
