I see what your saying Writin_Reg but the problem is Red County lots are built close in some areas to the edges of the world which makes getting stuck perhaps more common than other worlds that are just as large but the lots aren't that close to the edges of the map, so getting stuck in a world you don't have to play near the edge is more of a rare occurence.
After playing around with my Red County family for a while, I just have to say that it mimics the SoCal atmosphere to a T. I love it! I haven't experienced two many issues, but there is a very minor lot tear by the theater and...ugh...I'm trying to remember the other one I found...if I remember I'll keep you posted.
Also, I started my Sim out in the trailer park and found a LOT of townies moved into that area as well. This was good for socialization, but because there's only one street exit, there tends to be a bit of a Sim "traffic jam" during common times to leave for work and return from work. While it does make sense for the trailer park to have only one entrance, I feel like it causes some routing issues and making another opening onto the sidewalk might alleviate that a bit.

I have purchased Ambitions, but due to the issues CaW is having, I cannot make further progress until EA patches it.
Glosoli, I noticed that too and had added another entrance on the adjacent road...however, this is irrelevant information because since then I have completely relocated the trailer park to a more suitable location...the desert!
In its place will be a junkyard for Ambitious reasons
It has come to my attention that Ambitions has earthquakes. I giggled at this, because well, what better world to experience earthquakes in than Red County?

I LOL about the earthquakes in Red County. Yeah, I did try to play in your world since installing Ambitions and had several problems. I had hoped they could be fixed on your end if you updated the towns using Ambitions, but figured it would need a patch too. Well, I have you bookmarked and I will check periodically to see if and when Red County is back in business. For now I will be playing in Twinbrook since I seem to have no problems there. Keep your up. It will all get worked out I'm sure.

Well, let's see. I didn't play it for very long because I was afraid to mess up what I've done so far. I believe that ALL of my celebrity sims "lost their sparkle". I gave EVERY celebrity star this so that you knew when you saw a star. It just didn't show in the game. I'm sure you can't do anything about it.
Then there was the crashing, several times and ... let me stop now. I realize that there was nothing that you could fix personally with what was going on. I guess I just hoped that the world was glitchy because it wasn't built with Amitions and that as soon as you sent an update it would reconfigure or something and everything would go back to normal. I guess we just wait now
I think that the tool that allows lots to be placed will be very helpful for you. I hope the tool works better in your world than in the EA world. Its hard to find lots that touch the sidewalks. Well,talk to you soon, waiting for a patch

So you know who this is coming from, I was born in Fountain Valley, raised in Garden Grove (where I met my hubby at Pacifica High School), my best friend of over 20 years grew up in Anaheim Hills, my baby brother currently works at "Mickey Park" & now hubby & I live in San Diego - That's right a true SoCal woman!
Well I want you to know that I've been playing Red County & the verdict is: EA NEEDS TO HIRE YOU BECAUSE OF JUST HOW AWESOME YOU ARE!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, Coasterboi, I'm still lovin' your world. Awesome, awesome job.
I was just reading about some of the updated changes you've been reporting in the first post of this thread, and I'm so bummed that an update to the world wasn't posted before CAW went BOOM. Boo hoo! In the meantime I'm anxiously awaiting the time I can see the changes you've made - oh yeah, and I'll be hoping and praying for a fix to CAW before too long so we all don't have to wait too terribly long to see them!
