More Lots In The Works

Here are some shots of some of the community lots I've been working on for a while now. I needed a really long break from the game (It gets really tiresome building and building all the time, and I took up some reading and other things for a few months), but now, I think I'm back on track! We really hope that the next version will be the final. Or at least the final Beta! I still have a lot of lots to make over and quite a number of plans.

Lets talk about the pics I posted, shall we?... :)
First is a rough start on some shopping space in midtown. The building on the corner closest to you is going to be the new starbucks that was removed from the last beta but will be redone for the final!
The second picture is a redo of the nature trail way on the outskirts of New Jersey. This new lot will be more like a camping ground with tents to sleep in, a fire pit, some picnic tables and insects, rocks and other goodies to find.
The third and fourth picturs are a desert oasis and a tropical rainforest, encased in glass domes that can be explored. They are both set as fishing spots and ponds and WA spawners inside. They can be accessed just like the Butterfly dome in Bridgeport is. These will be located near the science facility in New Jersey.
And finally in the fifth picture, I'm going to build a dog park there. Since this world isn't going to include Pets or any expansions after Late Night, it will be zoned as a "small park".

Some of my other plans, as of right now, include:
-building a third domed fishing spot set as an alien world near the science facility
-building a large graveyard in the Bronx
-building some more brownstones, and a couple of apartment building north of Central Park (Harlem district)
-redo the New York Public Library
-build Bryant Park (small park) behind the library. The existing club will be moved somewhere in the suburbs.
-Build another shop in midtown on the other small empty lot near the one I'm building now.
-update some of the other existing lots including the business parks and offices in downtown and some other areas
-possibly updating Central Park

I know, it's a ton of work!!!

A Little More Up Close and Personal!

For those who may be new to our NY world, or for those that are exploring the new Beta version 5, here a few new lots that I have created. I'd like to know what you guys think of them. Any sort of feedback is appreciated! Also if there is anything you'd like to see added to the world? What lot's are your favorites so far? All feedback is welcome so we can get some ideas for new lots and change some things about existing ones if needed. Thanks guys!

Error Reporting

Courtesy of Daily Record (UK)

This is really a post for my sake, a place to keep the myriad issues organized. If you find an error in the world, please post it in the comments below.
  • Errors are routing issues, textures not showing up, floating objects, etc. (You know, things wrong with the world)
  • Errors are not crashes, lag, save errors, etc. I know these are more concerning to you, the individual, (and I will help you to resolve these issues as best I can) but I don't want this post to get clogged with those types of reports.

NYC v.5 Picture Update

I always feel that I don't do enough picture posts on this blog. So, as a precursor to the new beta, here are some pictures from the coming release...
