Neighborhood terrain - Ocean Atoll - by Duds at MTS2.

INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Add all the unzipped files to the 'My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/SC4Terrains' directory (folder). The pictures will let you see an image in the neighborhood selection screen instead of the green line picture.


INCREASING CAMERA OPTIONS FOR INCREASED VIEWING

To allow better camera angles, zooming and greater access to the edge of the terrain I recommend you check out this post out:

BACKGROUND TO DESIGN

I have created a few terrains that have a distinct lack of flat ground because I find it more challenging to design my houses on sloped ground.

One of the comments I received was a request for an island terrain that had lots of beach front.
I had a look over the other MTS2 terrains available and found that there were no real low lying Island/Atoll types. (with scattered islands rather than solid land masses. So I set about creating this terrain with smaller islands.

You don't need to worry about 'How do my sims reach the other Islands?' because they dont actually have to have a road connecting them. Even when taking their own car Sims can reach other community lots - must have some vehicle ferry waiting for your sims



Not much requirement on this terrain except for near the bridge, but if you have a proble with not being allowed to place lots due to excessive slope you might want to check out Boatnana's post:

Or check out one of my other recent terrains which detail how to do it:

All the best, and if you give decided to use this neighborhood then I hope it serves you well!

This is great. It's going to make a wonderful Lost downtown section for me.

I will finish my Hogwarts sims, as I promised, but after that, I will no longer be uploading. I feel like the anonymity of the internet allows people to forget manners and simple etiquette, so I will be returning to lurker status. Thanks to those who supported me, especially Lyric and Rockchick!

Absol-utly brilliant! thank you I have been looking for beach front/back land for ages...too lazy to do it myself. And the hills I agree are more of challange to work with, the best plot I have found so far is on University its the Strangetown Uni; if you go towards the lake there is enough room to place a medium/small plot of land that slopes down to the lake. This is the only Maxis plot I have found that shows the water while playing the house and resembles a beach.

Just had to come back and tell you how much I love this neighborhood. I have been looking for a neighborhood that looks like beach sand; used the desert terrain. My beach houses look absolutely grand. Thank you so much. You can see the water from the houses. I am having so much fun playing this neighborhood.
Extraordinary work!
