Only one world may be played at a time in Creatures 1, but there is a way to create switchable worlds! Make sure the game is not running, and use the following instructions:

  1. Locate the original world.sfc file, which will typically be found in Program Files\GOG.com\Creatures Albian Years\Creatures 1 or Documents\Creatures\Creatures 1. Make sure that this is not the current world: It should have a date of 07-11-1997. Alternatively, the Eden.sfc file can be used and renamed.
  2. Make a copy of the world.sfc or Eden.sfc file.
  3. Navigate to the main directory for Creatures 1, which will typically be found in Documents\Creatures\Creatures 1.
  4. Rename the world.sfc file in this directory to something like backup.sfc. It is the current world, and should have a recent date.
  5. Paste the world.sfc file from the second step in this directory. The next time C1 is opened, there will be a brand new world.
  6. Worlds can then be switched by renaming the active world file to world.sfc, and renaming any others. Just remember that whichever world file is named world.sfc will be the one the game opens.
