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!!!

  1. That Starbucks lot is going to look great, I can already tell! I'll start looking at a lot of Central Park pics and get to sculpting the place up and getting better terrain paints in there.

    Don't feel guilty about the break either. It's easy to get burnt out on this stuff and sometimes the best thing for creativity is just to step back for a bit. I take little mini-breaks all the time.

  2. If you can, try raising the land more so its not quite a deep slope downward. If we need to, we can put the actual lake on it's own lot.

  4. Is there a way you could possibly upload a picture of the world in gameplay (town overlook) so I can see if most of the buildings are accessable?

  5. Hey Daniel - I'm creating a personal use world (until this one is ready ;-) ) and am using some of your decor buildings. I think I've once come across a mod or something that allowed the decor buildings to be visible in CAW. Do you know how to get those to appear? As it is now, I place them EIG and then going back to CAW, they no longer are shown. Is it possible to change this? Thanks!!

    1. You have to enable Custom Content to appear in CAW first

      Here's a link:
      http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:CAW_Framework

      Just create a new folder in the CAW directory called 'Packages' and put your newly created resource.cfg file in there.

      One other thing; many of those deco buildings were created by TJ Streak (as well as some I didn't use)

      Here's a link for that:

      Good luck with the world...

    I Am a New Yorker born and raised. This is great. Very close to the real place. Can you move some of bridges that attach the small islands to attach the bigger pieces of land? It would be nice to make the island with the houses (the Staten island portion) accessable. In the v5 of the New York world.
