Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Edit 4/15/08 **Added a version with beaches, called Lake Crossing Beach. The pink highlighted part are the beaches. A few of the roads are changed to help accommodate the changes. I used the tutorial at MATY to change the terrain in my existing neighborhood to this one. Do not attempt without backing up your neighborhood folder!

Lake Crossing is a lovely community located within the headwaters of the Crossing River.

The city bigwigs like to say, "Every view is a water view in Lake Crossing!"

Gosh this is nice. I have so many houses with views of the ocean but the ocean is kind of boring. River views are much niftier.

Very amazing work! It looks very smart too: the watershape looks like it's a pair of brains!

Very good!

You know... I'd never thought of doing a hood like this! This is brilliant! Thank you!

Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...

I love it! The only issue I had is that for whatever reason, the map is littered with overlapped deco like the pond/lake that came with Apartment Life and the group fir trees. I'm talking at least seven ponds and twelve group trees piled on each other all over the place, especially on streets. Just a heads up to downloaders.
