Love how it's coming along. It's great to see Riverview in a whole new light. Beautiful houses, Beautiful layout of the neighborhood, it's just Beautiful!
I can't wait til it's done and if you ever need someone to test it out *points at self* i'd be happy to do so :D

Another home done. Again, it has a basement and an attic although they are not furnished other than light fixtures and wall/flooring. The attic does have two rooms, as does the basement so it would allow a decent expansion if the family grew (or if I choose not to populate and someone else moves someone in).

I have an idea of the family that would live here, even though I haven't decided if I am populating or not. The idea behind it is: Woman and husband live together; woman's parents are elderly and no longer can live on their own so they live in the spare room. The woman and her husband also have a young adult daughter who gets pregnant and, shortly after giving birth, abandons her newborn daughter to find fame and fortune in the city. So now this new grandma (who is quite young to be a grandma) is not only taking care of her parents, but her new granddaughter as well. The garage area has a workbench for the tinkering old man (her father).

I am pleased to announce that I ran a test game today to see how everything went and the world is running beautifully. No lag, no routing issues, nothing bad to report. I did notice some flowers clipping into a wall of a house so I shall have to fix that and some other small things. However, I do believe that I may be releasing a beta version, just so other people can play and test for me as well, since I am not so much a simmer as builder and some of you may catch things that I missed. Please be on the lookout in the near future!

I think the original idea of riverview came from my city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The city hall here sits on an island in the middle of the Cedar River.

ANYWAY.
I love your idea! It's like showing an Urban side of Riverview we've never seen before, not even in Cedar Rapids.

I like the split level, I always have trouble creating split levels. xD

Okay, so the BETA is finally up. I know, I know it took me a week to do but I had an idea and didn't want to wait to start it! Forgive me.

EDIT: Updated beta is now located below. Please refer to that for testing information.

It has been awhile since I posted pictures of the entire world so you can see how it is coming along. So, here they are.

Alright, been working this morning. I finished the consignment shop and also fixed the back wall (which was missing) of the bar. The upstairs right of the shop is an imaginary apartment. Also, in the clothes section, the top has "bolts of fabric" for people who want to make their own clothes.

Okay, and another update! I am definitely on a role today! Now, if I can just finish the fire station tomorrow, I will upload a new BETA and everyone can download it and test it when the site goes down for a couple of days. :D

Okay, I have been working on this for awhile. I promise I didn't abandon it! I did lose some inspiration for awhile and then, when I did start working on it again, the changes were not quite small enough to justify making a new post. However, I finally have some pictures. To see what still needs to be done, please see the first post. I should have a beta up sometime this week and would welcome testers. All of the roads have been updated so they're no longer that hideous default.


The world will include pets. If you haven't seen it, I have another thread on CFF pertaining to the world; this one regarding the families/stories you would like to see. If you have ideas for that, please feel free to drop on by!

Ooh, I love the progress! The pond in that last pic looks nice, very natural looking!

I love how you have the downtown on the little island. Reminds me of Manhattan. =)

Yay! Time for testing! Please see ALL sections below before choosing to test. Also, please let me know if you are testing. Would be nice to know someone has it!





Just as a fun update; I was running a play test of my own and found some wild horses and a unicorn! So yay!

Looking forward to testing this out for you, one question though.
Do I have to download the Unlocked Content for CAW if I already have Riverview?

You do have to have Riverview. However, the installed content is just unlocked for use in CAW (or unlocked to be found in the buy catalog). These are not necessary to download. I'll make sure to mention that.

Just wondering if anyone got a chance to test and had feedback. Am working on things now and wanted to know if anyone had any issues or suggestions?

but otherwise, I really love what you've done with the place!

The file was changed to private because I am having some issues with it. Once I see about resolving that, I'll repost a file to share. Sorry about that. Guess this is on hold, once again.

EDIT: Okay, I believe that I got it taken care of, thanks to the lovely simsample. So, again, here is the new upload file. Please review the prior posts for testing instructions and CC list.

Testers, make sure to get the Riverview Distant Terrain In Game and Riverview Bridges In Game files to install as CC. Without these files, neither items will show up in the world.

You can find the files here.

Okay, once again, the world is not dead, I promise. I've been slowly working on it back and forth with my legacy. I've got a few pictures for everyone.

Wow this looks really nice! I love the victorians. For Wisteria Lane, If you live anywhere near LA you could go to Universal and give you a studio tour in the park, and they drive you through there, you know just for inspiration.

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.
