I have been working on this for the past few days and think I like well enough to continue. I am not sure what the theme is totally but am building in anticipation of Supernatural. I tried to lay out the roads somewhat like a spider web. I want it to be dreary but not too spooky so will not look like a Halloween hood. As usual I am trying to fill in with too many things I want to do. Laughing

Made a decision I do not like, and am using some RH in basements. It is so easy to do compared to before WA and they will be easy to nuke for me later when I use rugs. I read that we cannot even recolor RH if we want something on the exchange, so that is the plan for now.

Right now a lot of lots are just plopped down to plan where I want things.

Cool!

I love how you've laid the roads out. Flamewizo made this super cool spider build that would look really cool in this hood. Let me look for it.....................................

I will check out that house! I also need to find my spider park I did for Spookytown.

I think I like it well enough to keep going. It is not quite as dreary or dramatic as I would like, but maybe will evolve into something. Worked on a library a bit and some row houses on the canal. All are WIP. Will vary the houses but wanted to see the general look. There is a waterfall under the arch rock that dumps into the canal.

The library has that bad shading/discoloration on the pediment that we sometimes get. Does anyone know how to get rid of that?

I am also debating whether to do something here that I have wanted to do for a while. I love the Lemony Snickett books and want to do a world that is an adventure/challenge very loosely inspired by the story. It would be a challenge were the sims need to move from location to location and meet certain goals before each move. The lots would have a few tomb elements that need to be done before they progress.

I have never done a hood with sims and if I stick to the books somewhat would want to make the sims. Or I may do a less complicated version where players use their sims but need to do the steps to finish.

All are ideas that are in the very, very early stage.

hmm

Hi Daisy, I think it's a very cool project. I love the layout and tha houses. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the grass texture, I think a darker one would look better thumbs up

I totally agree about the grass and was thinking that too. I just did some reading and now know how to change the base. I used a darker one, but still want it to be darker I think. I also want to see if I can learn to change the lighting, maybe! I would like a bit drearier like TW or Bridgeview.

I love the LS books and own the whole set. I am not sure how much to use of them for the theme or not. Most people would not understand the references, but that would not really matter. Shall see.....

Muvh better now applause And for the lightning just open Bridgeport in S3PE, extract all the INI files, and then import them in your world (But remember that CAW deletes them when you save so it would be the last thing you have to do before exporting the world Wink )

Thank you for that information about the lighting! I like the darker grass too. Dark enough or should I go even darker?

There are still so many things I have never done in CAW, so it is fun to try new things. I jumped right in when CAW was released and never read some of the newer tutes, so need to do so to learn more about things like that.

Thanks! Silly but fun. If I spend the time to do a world I want it to be something unique, and this sure will be, if I end up going all the way with it. Laughing

I am putting a lot of falls in this one. This is one of 3 locations with falls.

I absolutely love the way that he writes! And the sad thing is that even with a good education, I still miss at least half of the puns/references made by Sunny! Laughing I also like the movie which was well done considering it covered items from 3 books.

I think the darker green is better too. And the overall hood will look darker when the trees are in.

Some houses on the water. Just starting ....

New World WIP - Spider Island - Released Scree310

a lookout spot to look across at one series of falls. I am keeping the top spot open so far to leave place for a castle of some sort similar to the one in Sherlock Holmes2. And I suspect we may get a cool one in Supernatural. I may play with it more to try to get the castle right on the falls, or maybe play with that idea elsewhere.

The lot for The Reptile Room one is going to be a fun one to do. I will probably work on the other set of falls a bit more today. Smile

I am trying to do a submarine type whatchamacallit! Not easy to do in this game. I wish EA would give us some round wall pieces to use!

I just made the roads much darker to give a more dramatic look.

This world is giving me some fits. The submarine lot was fine when I built it and then when I went back was all under water! Played and played with it and there was no way to get on it! I finally had to change to have it not be docked and access is with a dive well. I still am not totally happy with it as we just cannot get the look I want, so will have to decide what to do.

I think it still looks pretty bad, so who knows what. In the meantime...
Maybe I should remove the doors and do the look of a fake hatch on top. It needs more work. Rolling Eyes Sad

I have been sculpting and painting and sculpting and painting ....

I wish I were better at both, but just am not willing to spend forever to get it as it really should be.
