ooo, you turned the lot into a festival ground? That sounds like a neat idea. So it is ok to edit? Train still running?

I just added those several items. Let me see if the train still comes? I did not have to use any cheat to edit it. The city looks pretty darn cool, I mean darn right cold, in winter. Brrrrr.

edit: train came
Then changed to a festival lot zoning and a train came. I did not add the marker though and use it.

Those are great! I had the same problem with the lots I've made too though. They look too clean and new. If you're going to upload them maybe you could have a furnished and unfurnished option? Then people could decide whether to use them as residential or commercial buildings.

I did some building and some altering of other lots. Pics under the spoiler tag.

I got bored of building and decided to move some sims in to see what the world was like to play in. One thing I've found is that if sims have jobs that are located in the subway, it takes them a long time to get there and they end up being late for work. I also had a weird glitch with the school. I have pics though! (Just thought I'd edit this in. I've found a lot of wildflowers spawning in the back alleys, which is nice! And there's also a lot of creepy paparazzi lurking in the alleyways, even though I have celebrities switched off.)



I really have to stop playing the sims now and do some normal human stuff. Like clean my house.

If you find any more cool Boroughsburg stuff or have any pictures to share please add them here, I'd love to see. It's such a photogenic world!

Something like this for lot 11? It is perfect, same size 30x10.


And maybe this one for lot 36? Same size 15x10.


I'm currently in my old Bridgeport, just a couple of little lots I have for city. They're pretty simple, so I wouldn't upload them to MTS. But if you guys want, I can clean them up in Boroughburg lot and just zip the library files to a mediafire account. Save you the time of having to duplicate them.

When I have time, I think I'll start constructing a hospital on lot 1 next to Gotham court. It seems to be the perfect lot for it b/c of the size, location, and the 3 entrances. Lot 2 next to it, probably going to make a city college.

It looks like you both are having a great time playing this. There is a lot of potential if the time is taken to work on this world.

Actually I haven't been playing it at all, hehe. I'm playing Bridgeport. Been stuck in farm town Riverview too much. I'm just looking at the Boroughburg map that came with the download and see how much of the world can be filled up quickly to make it playable b/c right now it is empty. I think I'd be more motivated to build for a world that I am playing.

I think when we fill in a lot of the RH lots and ambition lots, it will take care of a lot of the larger lots - stadium, hospital, movie studio, etc... and later build actual buildings to match the town to replace those RH. The firestation that came with TS3 is redbrick, fits right into this world in one of the 30x20 lots.

Residential is a problem as most residentials for downlaod are houses. the NYC world has several apartments of 30x20, 30x25, etc... might transfer some of those over, but the NYC world has many boroughs and not all apartment styles will match. There is a red brick warehouse apartment which would fit nicely and it is a 30x20. I currently use that in my Bridgeport.


----

Edit:

Ok, this might be a little delicate as I don't want to step on anyone's toe. I'm not familiar with any of these protocols and I don't want to offend anyone especially the creators. I simply don't know how people feel about someone suggesting using lots from 1 world to another. Nothing here of course is about uploading anything, just for your own private games. I'm just suggesting it b/c this is the easiest and fastest way I find to populate the lots in Boroughsburg.

When you look at the map provided for Boroughsburg, there really are a lot of lots for this world. Waiting for people to convert the shell into lots may take a while or even creator your own lots. Since Boroughsburg is based on NYC and another author made NYC world, a lot of the lots are convertible in sense of style and fit the neighborhood.

I am currently in the NYC world and there are WAY more lots than I originally thought, many different sizes. Some are 2 build apartments, some are 4 buildings, and some are even a whole block size. Not to mention there are also plenty of commercial lots which would fit in too. Every lot seems to be different, I thought the author use say 1 type of apartment lots for a whole borough or something, but most of them are actually different lots.

Anyways, again, I don't want to offend anyone. I don't know how the creator of NYC world feels if someone uses his lots in another world or how the creator of Boroughsburg feel about people using lots from other worlds in his world, I'm simply saying if you want to get this world going fast, filling up 60+ lots, this is a good place to find lots which would fit the environment style of Boroughsburg. I'm going to do this for my own game to get it started, then once the world is up and running, start building this world, changing the rabbithole buildings etc...

^ ^ Once you download a world, you’re free to tamper with it any way you like. Don’t worry about the creators sensibilities or vision. it’s your game, customise it as you see fit.

On the topic of dropping lots down into Boroughsburg, I find that in this hood in particular, it’s almost pointless. They won’t fit the surroundings as good as builds that are designed for it specifically.

You gotta find the matching ones. The one by MsPoodles in the link provided on the 1st page is the best b/c she specifically build it on the existing lot around the shells. But she only made around 6-7 lots. The other link provided in the same post has a lot of urban city like structures (I downloaded it all). Some could match directly, others might need new texturing. The NYC world, I find the lots from Brooklyn and Bronx would be the best match. Still, I think some organization is required and some retexturing.

The thing about the lots downloaded from the 2 links provided in the 1st page is that they're loaded with CCs. The good news is a clean library file is included in each of the downloads. I only put the library files into my game, I don't want to go through all those CCs b/c every new CC I have to test etc... So this means each time I plop a lot down, I have to edit it a little (or a lot depending), changing replaced objects, changing wall textures that are missing with similar ones. It is a lot of work, so far I've only done 4.

But with the lots downloaded from the 2 links and from NYC, I think I have enough to fill most of the lots in Boroughsburg. It is just to get it up and running. Once I'm actually playing the world, then I'll be more motivated to build etc...

EDIT:
I'm working on the hospital now. It is based on the Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital from House MD. It it'll take a while to finish, but I'll upload it when I'm done.

I finally got around to uploading some of those lots, (though MTS only allows 2 uploads at a time) the others are done too, and I will upload them as soon as the first two are accepted.

Is it odd that the part that I was stuck on the most was thinking of the names and descriptions for them?

Not anytime soon, unfortunately, as I have too much on my plate atm.

If anyone is interested, I could use some of the lots people have worked on here just to get a head-start in filling in the city.

Maybe we can have some sort of chart to check off which ones have been worked on and which ones people are working on so there won't be overlaps.

What have you guys done with the Moshe's Broadway Deli? (That unfurnished little community lot with the colorful 7/11 stripes?) I'm thinking about furnishing it to become something useful, but also something not so obvious (like a consignment store), I would prefer a more unusual assignment.

Well, it's a Deli so I'm thinking of either a WA food register or the bistro oven

This world is amazing! Thank you so so soooo much for sharing this piece of art <3
It loads very quickly and runs smoothly on my computer.

It's got the perfect size. I do not play often with horses, but i do like 2 or 3 in a town, and even though this world is small, i will be able to build a farm (:

Yes sure, never heard of those special... city horses? they love to...stay still and look around... i think.
I am still using your reshader, thanks a lot :D

Hmm first, i thought, it would be a bit complicated to put all those packages in the right folders, but it was a lot easier than i expected. I tested this world for a while in livemode and it's working fine (:

Thank you! I'm definitely trying to build up a collection of lots that I can start placing into the world, and there's been plenty of great lots that I've snagged already!

#100 Old 3rd Dec 2018 at 5:42 PM
The world has all spawners from Basegame up to Late Night, as those are the base requirements for the world.

Spawners farther away from lots are more valuable.
