I also sort of wish there was a larger smoke effect out there, but I guess world-builders have to do with what they have!
Cannot wait to have Sims explore all of this!
I'm glad you like the coral reefs, the sky, the distant terrain and the volcano so far
|And the water looks like yummy blueberry KoolAid!|
I had to google what that is, I'll take it as a compliment
|Looks great! I almost feel like it could do with a custom distant terrain!|
The IP distant terrain works perfectly for what I was aiming for, but I know I will need a custom DT for some future worlds.
|also sort of wish there was a larger smoke effect out there, but I guess world-builders have to do with what they have!|
I do wish that too! I had to use multiple smoke effects from SuperCAW to create this, the biggest waterfall steam effect just wasn't enough. But sometimes I like this having to do with what we have thing, it gives me ideas I would never come up with otherwise
Horses would be a nightmare for sure, but deer might be nice wandering around. Wouldn't it be nice if you could change the look of the deer to some otherworldly creature, in a shade of aquamarine
It looks like you made huge progress on the map! Volcano's are stereotypical for a reason, it looks great, can't wait to see it finished. I love the plants and the way you've layered them in the wetlands, you got the balance right I think and that waterfall is sensational. Waterfall's in the game usually look pretty fake, yours doesn't! That coral reef is something else though.
Oh, and if I lived on that island, I would be glad there was no greater smoke rising from that volcano

Expanding on the floating islands - Having three to five houses altogether among all of the floating islands for winged folk (aka fairies), and only winged ones live on them, would be really cool. They would be a slightly different species from the Uranesians, allowing a little more diversity in looks. I love the original idea of waterfalls coming down from them too, which makes me think of water, which makes me wonder if there will be a mer-people species. (If you give a mouse a cookie..) Haha I'm veering off track aren't I..
It would be neat if all the hypothetical floating islands each had a name and there was an adventure that lead an adventurer sim from one to the next. Another idea I have is that the floating islands are inaccessible until the sim has completed other specific adventures as a prerequisite. This is just some wishful thinking on my part.
These are just some ideas, don't feel any pressure to include them if they don't work for the storyline/if it's too much//if it's not possible(I know nothing about world creation)/if it's not in your vision for the world/etc, because I completely understand that. :}

Nilxis, you're an ancient magical creature with mystical powers from that world, admit it!
Seriously though, this is beyond any skill level I have ever seen.
|Just know it is there, ready to fry our Sims at any moment!!!! DANGER!!! LOL|
Don't make the gods and the spirits angry
@simsmidgen, Thanks for the nice words
|and the fact that you tell a story, or a history lesson with the tombs|
It's gonna be both history and stories :P
|Horses would be a nightmare for sure, but deer might be nice wandering around. Wouldn't it be nice if you could change the look of the deer to some otherworldly creature, in a shade of aquamarine|
Thanks for the idea! I agree that deer would look nice, but can you edit them in CAS? I've read that you can get them in CAS but I'm not sure if actually editing them is possible. But I can also edit a horse and make it smaller with a custom slider, which would look nice too
@Kylaaab, Yes! I still want to add some floating islands, but probably fewer than I imagined first. Most of the islands are going to be decorative, made with CAW objects, but I’d love to make at least one of them accessible (as a lot), so I agree using dive pools to get there would be a nice option (but getting there is not going to be easy!). About winged creatures living in the floating islands, I have to say this is a very good idea, it makes sense and sounds cool. Unfortunately, right now all the sims who are not the ones in the city (let’s call them this way haha) have been planned and such thing wouldn’t work with the storyline. But had you suggested this idea 3 years ago I would probably have included it! About mer-people, all I’ll I’m going to say is you’ll have to figure it out yourself :P
I hope that answers your questions, even if all I said pretty much is “you’ll see” lol, and thanks for the ideas anyway!
@MystAngel, Hahahah, never! thanks for your comment
@Sarathewise, Thanks! You’ll definitely need CC though if you want to play in Uranesia, it’s what partly gives the world its identity and makes it look the way it does. You can check out the sim creation thread here if you’re interested: http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...914#post5512914 but we are using CC for the sims as well.

Of course! It will be up for download like all my other worlds.

Long time no see! Here's another update showcasing landscapes. Also, I've finished the "secret areas", so from now on I'll be able to show more stuff. Here are the pictures and the info:
Overview, the empty area is very small right now.
I've transformed the mountain next to the city into a small extinct volcano.
I've sculpted and painted the volcanic cone a bit more.
Here you can see the two new additions I'm featuring in this update: a lava flow and, after such a long time talking about them, the floating rocks! (I'm not calling them islands anymore )
The floating rocks are one of the most fantasy elements in Uranesia. I'll try to make one of them accessible, as a lot
This is an 'a'Ä type lava flow that comes out of a cave and goes down to the sea. It's been there since modern Uranesians reached the island, and has acted as a barrier between the areas on each side.
The lava flow lights up at night Together with the city, It really stands out in the darkness.
I hope you like it! I won't be able to publish new updates in the next 3 months because I'll be spending the summer abroad and I won't have my computer with me, but I'll be able to respond to your comments and messages. I hope you all have a nice summer!

As a note, I wonder what could go into that last little unfinished bit?
I wonder if that could be the location of a giant routable "floating" island, which could continue the theme of the floating islands and work them more deeply into the worldbuilding of the island- it would also create another unique location on the island.
Maybe a floating crystal deposit was created when the island was made, but over time the crystals began to break away from the rest of the volcano with bits of the terrain attached? Basically it's a flank of the volcano that split off with the rest crumbling into the sea below, creating a karst-like appearance.
It could look like this:
You could make it look like Ha Long Bay, with a cloud effect at the base.
Also, just curious- I wonder if World Machine can be used to generate a final "fine detail" paint layer for that final "oomph". If you want, I'd definitely like to experiment with it- it would have to happen once you finish sculpting everything though!
