PostSubject: Elmdale - new world + lots   Mon Nov 18, 2013 10:11 pm


Elmdale is the first world I've finished, and my main gaming world. I've been looking for a medium non-island, non-tropical world that has all types of areas and doesn't require all EPs for a very long time, but didn't manage to find one (well, all but the base game only worlds require at least WA), so, I decided to make one myself. Elmdale is created on a medium-sized map, with distant terrain from Twinbrook, or, to be exact, 3 of them rotated and placed in different positions to surround the town from all sides.

I made Elmdale with empty lots, and plan to upload lots for it separately, because I use a lot of CC for lots.
Elmdale has the following areas:

(click the spoiler to see the areas)
Elmdale districts:

- The Old Town will feature elaborate old architecture, many community lots and apartments.It is also the place for some RHs, like City Hall, Police Station, School, Bookstore.
- The modern district will have contemporary and even ultramodern architecture, apartment lots and houses, and, of course, community lots, including RH's: Hospital, Foodstore, Business Center, Staduim+Show Venue.
- The Pier is for modern decked houses and ports with houseboats.
- The Industrial District will be the place for loft houses and RH's: Criminal hideout, Research Lab, Film Studio (to me it looks like a warehouse, so I plan to place it there as a new independent film studio that actually occupies an old warehouse; don't know whether it's realistic enough, though)
- The Old Suburb us for rich Victorian-styled houses, and the part that is closer to the river will have some decked houses and a resort near the waterfall.
- Rural Area is for small farms and traditional houses, usually with vegetable gardens and farm-themed store objects like chicken house or cow shed. It will also host Equestrian Centre and a few community gardens (like the one in Twinbrook)
- The Beach Area is for beach houses, ports,a beach-styled resort, and, of course, the beach.
So, there's a room for everything.

The town has a railway that looks functional, but it is just deco. There will also be a railway station!
I imported ini files from China (WA) into Elmdale for custom water/sky colors, but you don't need WA to play this world. I don't even have that EP myself.
I used 13 textues total for making this world, but only 2 chunks have 9 textures;other chunks have 6 to 8 textures.

Looks like a lovely world. You blended the distant terrains well. Very well done.

Gramcrackers, MerryWiddow, daisylee, thank you all! I'mglad that you like the town.

Btw, I built the Train Station for it, so, the trains have where to "arrive" (unfortunately they're just deco, and don't move).
