Default King's Landing in The Sims 3 - Game of Thrones
Hey guys! As a fan of Game of Thrones I would love to play in King's Landing (before S8) and enjoy all the vibe that that city has always given me. And I didn't find anything like it on the internet. Sorry for my English, I'm Brazilian.

So I decided to create this city in CAW. It's a project that should take a few years to complete but I'm very excited. But there are several obstacles.

About the series world itself, there are several inconsistencies. For example, from the S1 to the S7 King's Landing has mountains with some mansions outside the walls, while on the S8 it is just a desert.


There are also several changes between the seasons in Red Keep, Great Sept of Baelor, and the size of the city. So I decided to follow what is best for the world and stayed longer during the show. I will keep the mountains out of town.
I've already started to do the sketch of the world in CAW, my first goal is the Red Keep, because from it I can get a better idea of ​​the size of the world.


But to keep this project alive and get to the end (And maybe, do Winterffel, Hight Garden on other maps) I need a lot of support, it's a big world and very important for many people, there will be a lot of judgment in everything that I show.

My first obstacle is the walls, that is what I would like help now. I am using the walls of Monte Vista, but they don't seem very satisfactory. In the city of the Store there are towers between the connections of the walls, I don't find them anywhere. (I had to download these walls on the internet as well)

My second problem is with the Red Keep. Unfortunately I can't make the castle by itself in a single lot, so I reviewed several photos and reports of the books and divided them into smaller castles, The Throne Room, Maegor's Holdfast...
My real problem is with this last one, where the king and his family lives. It's the highest part of all King's Landing, I used cheats to make it as high as I could, but that's not much, and it's also inaccessible, there's no way to put stairs between floors, is a sacrifice I have made in favor of aesthetics. I accept ideas


For this world I would like to use only expansions and Stuff Packs with objects linked to the theme. Supernatural, World Adventures, Ambitions, Pets (for the horses), Movies and Monte Vista.

Soon I will have more details, for now I leave you with sketch of Red Keep. And please, somebody finds a throne better than this, it was the most acceptable that I found.




Again, forgive me for my English, I don't feel safe writing freely for now, there are many terms here that I don't know. And this is the first time that I use a forum, I don't know very well how it works.

Your English is great! No need for any apologies there. I think I am the only person on the planet who has not seen GOT so cannot guide you about it. This sounds like a very ambitious world. Have you done others? My one piece of advice at this point is to not make it so huge that nobody and perhaps you can even play it. There have been some worlds done by very talented folks that they have spent years on, and they have had to be in effect scrapped as unplayable. So be sure to keep that in mind.

We all do CAW differently. I tend to do the world and set the lots but do not do lot builds generally until near the end. Some folks build area by area with great detail. Figure out what works best for you.
Great theme! Hope all goes well. Others who watch GOT can probably give you some great input.

How big did you make this world and what is the heigth restrictions?

You can make the castle much heigher with constrainfloorelevation cheat or cfe for short.

Where didn't you find the tower? In caw metadata? I have recolored the walls and don't really remember what they are called. Perhaps someone else knows.

Hey, daisylee, thank u for the support. Yes, i had already made others worlds a few years ago, and i agree with u, there are a lot of big worlds that u can't even play because of the huge content. And i will follow your adviser and reduce the city a lot, still will looks like the shows one, but smaller.
In the majority of time, i'm like u in ther order to build, but in this case, i need do the castle first, to know the scale of the city arrount it. Again, thank u for the mesage, it's really nice know the someone is listening. Have a nice day!

In this first moment i'm doing just the sketch of the city in a large map with 300 height. I haven't decided yet if i will keep it or change for a medium one. And yes, i used 'constrainfloorelevation' to make it as high as I could (not enough, not too bad). Oh, and i realise now, i'm using your version of the walls. Some months ago i researched for the Monte Vista walls, and a I finded yours. Thank u so much for this, they're amazing. In metadata i found three objects, the wall, the retainingwall, and the gate, i don't know if there is a tower of Monte Vista in metadata, i haven't find it.

Default Updates! Great Sept of Baelor
New Update!
Hey, just bringing some updates from King's Landing.
The project goes on, sorry for the lack of news during the last 5 months, let's say that for a Brazilian student, this period is very tense and busy because of ENEM.
Anyway, I bring you now the Great Sepel of Baelor, and surroundings! Not fully finalized yet, I'm working on it. I also put the walls in the city, set the ground and i'm now working on the new castle.

Omigod!!! I love Game of thrones, and had been hoping someone would decide to recreate Westeros or in your case Kings Landing. Too answer your question, you're right, by the time season 8 came around, the outside of Kings landing was desert. It most certainly wasn't that way in the earlier seasons, so you should probably just chalk that up as one of D & D's inconsistencies. It was shown as green landscape at the entrance when Catelyn and Sir Rodrick Cassell (may he forever rest in the bosom of the old gods) first entered the city to alert Ned of the Lannister treachery. But the good news is there are so many maps that illustrate Westeros and Essos, all you have to do is take your pick.

The World of Ice and Fire book is a great reference book you could use to get a better idea of how to sculpt your world, as well as The Lands of Ice and Fire which is pretty much a book with just maps in it. Good Luck!!

Hey! Nice to see a GoT fan here.
When I first published here, I was still reading the first book and just had the main saga.
Now, I am finishing the third book, and I also bought 'Fire and Blood', and most importantly 'The World of Ice and Fire', which has given me great foundation and inspiration for this world in The Sims 3.
I am also following some maps on the internet, but they don't help, as they are based only on books, and the King's Landing that I am creating is much more similar to the series until season six.
I have been watching a few episodes of GoT again to create something quite faithful to the show. I've also been looking for images on the internet and on Google Earth from Dubrovnik, where King's Landing was filmed.

And thanks for the tips, I will watch again the episode you mentioned, sure has a lot to add.

Hey daisylee! There were actually some errors when I tried to link the images, it looks like they don't work. But I imagine that as an attachment they should work, I am trying to add the images.
Here are some of the latest images from the world, it's a little bit different now, I've been working at the castle this past week, and it's been pretty hard but I think I'll make it playable. I have also used new textures for houses and buildings in general, making them more real and medieval.
Thank you for your support!

Default New Update!
Hey!
It's been a while, but I'm still working on that world. Today I made a video showing you a little bit of the city.
Much remains to be done, but it is taking shape quickly!

Hey. I hope you are all well in this quarantine.
So, someone special convinced me to do a speed build of this project, and I decided to share it with you! Hope you like it
Note that the video is in Portuguese, but I intend to eventually make videos in English for this world when I feel comfortable
