Love the neighbourhood!


@NewSimGirl2011 - thanks for the kind works, I really appreciate that somebody enjoys it I did toy with the idea, but I'm new to this Sims blogging stuff and don't even know where people usually do this... I've seen a few tumblr posts that do this?

Either way, I do plan on eventually releasing a clean version for a custom hood download, but that may take a while :p

Yeah Tumblr is the place slot of people blog now, though I still don't have a Tumblr, but I bookmark alot of my favourites and catch up that way. Well good luck @Morrowindnostalgia. Look forward to one day seeing the non-custom hood version.

I feel bad for admitting this, but I did not have an interest in Criquette's shop facades beyond 'Oh, Criquette did a thing, cool.'
Then I downloaded them for his car set without any intention of using them, and...I have kind of fallen in love with them.

I've combined it with one of Lowedeus's Russian sets and it has given me the EXACT European/English city vibe that I was going for, with apartments above shops.

I have been failing to get this result in build mode, so I'm so happy this worked out. Guess I'm playing a simlish game after all!

This is a test hood that I haven't even really tested in, truthfully, but I quite like what I've done with it.. Quite tempted to play with it. :D

I am nowhere near finished building or adding hood deco, but I am in love with this terrain.
This is my new neighborhood Luna Canyon, nestled in the bottom of the canyon with no other towns around for miles. It is split by the Lapis River. Currently, on one side only the Piccolo family (the town's founders) resides. On the other side of the river is the agriculture district with the Romana, Parker, and Fraser families.

It is inspired by Zion National Park in Utah. Not based on it at all.. But Zion takes my breath away and just makes me feel happy. And if I could live anywhere I would have loved to discovered Zion Canyon before it became a national (theme) park and have settled at the bottom of it and allow myself to be cradled by the beautiful rock formations. So that is what my Simmies get to do

For some reason, I've suddenly gained a gleeful obsession with neighbourhood aesthetics. While skyboxes and skylines are still not all that I would want them to be, they have markedly improved since the last time I tried them out. Pleasantview looks like it's in an entirely different game!


Concrete terrain still has some issues, but I like the effect of the sky on the SimCity River.


The Dumptown neighbourhood of SimCity certainly looks even drearier under the requisite grey sky of a grim noir city...


...inculding from within the dump itself, which I was loading up with scavagable junk.

We're on the road to nowhere... While it does look like the road is going off a cliff, I find it an improvement over the old picture below:



Any ideas for how to make the neighbourhood water a little less immersion-breaking in Riverblossom Hills? Otherwise the view is almost seamless.

It looks fine if you use a low enough camera angle that the map edges aren't visible.



If you rotate the horizon 180 degrees and place it from the opposite corner, the river looks as though it continues on into the woods on the horizon.

My alien shopping district, Abydos. I love how it turned out. All the business owners and employees are gonna be either aliens or robots/servos.

Here's the view of Dodge takin in the winter of 1840 just after the Jankowskys arrived as the town founders earlier that year.

Edge is the hood I am currently building.
It was once a mining boom town. Some of the mine buildings still stand - there were two competing companies, based at opposite ends of town, with a railway to carry away the payload. The township evolved between them, with an urban sense of permanence, but it was not to last.

As the ore ran out, the town shrank. The railroad closed down and is overgrown in places. There are even some abandoned railcars left on the line. Now, Edge is a dead-end desert township. The only really green space is in the park opposite the Town Hall, and the inhabitants have to travel to the Big Smoke for anything beyond the necessities, including school for the kiddies.



The bright blue building to the left is the new public swimming pool, built to try and revive some civic pride, and keep families from moving away.

I'm still working on Edge - since this was taken, the sports fields have been added between the pool and the raliway. The town centre will also be more filled in as I get through my building list.
