I will go ahead and start a thread on this as I have done enough work that I think it is a keeper, as long as my CAW does not nuke it waiting for a new version.

I liked the mountains and overall look of MF but did not like the layout and lack of a focus. I wanted a world where I could have houses lined up where you can look down the street and see all the decorations and lights for the holidays.

It is called Camden Falls as I am getting a few ideas from pics of Camden, Maine. The layout is totally different, but I want a somewhat New England small town look to it.

Here are a few pics of what I have done so far. Just starting...

Here is a pic as of last night.


The festival park was going to be the TW one redone in town by the city hall, but I decided I want it to look more like a carnival that travels comes and goes more in the country. So I am doing a festival park from scratch that looks just like a small park with a pond when there is not a festival there. This is what is done so far.

I am snagging lots from the first world I did that I played and altering them for this world.
Here is a group of townhouses where I added 2 more units. It has a nice location by a park.

I am having to redo a lot in the lots as I am not wanting CC in this world.

This was an idea I got from a real pic, in small towns the parking is often right off the street like this so I am including street parking in some lots. I want this to be a somewhat posh resort town.

I would make them parallel park next to the street, leaving more gathering space near the storefronts.

Commercial buildings across the street with more street parking. Twins and a different one in the middle that will be an upscale restaurant I think.

the first one done


the middle


the row - my graphics were getting wonky here as the twins are red brick and not black

Your street parking looks great, perfect amount of texture/color variety to make it an interesting space, despite still being parking. Do you have the Ford stuffs from the Store? One set has the parking space that has the meter. I love that thing. The town I went to high school in had meters around the court house that took pennies, and I just went to high school in the 1990s. Pennies! Razz I love small towns.

I am doing that on some lots too. And the row behind that one has the parking along the alley. The bad thing is that if there is a space for my sims, they will have to run all the way around to the shops Laughing, unless I put in back doors for all which I really do not want to do.

Here is one of the real pics where the parking is parallel.



and here is a grouping that I like that I want to use as inspiration somewhere Smile

I have never done much parking in my worlds so thought this would make it look a bit more real. I should get those meters. If people do not have them then will there be zero or they will be replaced by who knows what?

I used to be very concerned about too many parking spaces for worlds, but since I think everyone and their siblings use Overwatch I'm not worried anymore. Heck, you need Overwatch for EA towns just as bad.

I assume that since it is a Store item, from EA, that has a single specific function, shared by only one base game object it would be replaced by the normal parking space, if one did not have the Ford parking meter.

However, I wouldn't hold it past EA, that it could be replaced by a toilet or potted plant.

Biggest problem with parking though, is that all the NPCs drive ugly brown Sloppy Jalopies and gray Big Lemons. I wonder if there's a mod to fix that...

Thank you Rheassi! I always seem to have to be working on one. Yes, it is an addiction. Laughing
Let me find more pics.

Here is a park I did way back when for Riverview that works well by the school and river here, now with diving boards! Big Grin

oops, found this first, something I want to do - a lousy pic of the Lord Camden Inn I think it is called


edit: found a better pic

I may put more cars on the residential lots than I usually do hoping that more appear in town. Also, can we zone as residential and put in some cars of our choice and then rezone as community? I think I will try that as all the spaces are not needed.

Here is the equestrian center which I hope works with Petite Pony on the training grounds. Here is a pic of a real place, and the EA center sure looks like that one building.



as long as I am still in that folder... I placed a lot on the dunes at the beach where I want to do something like this

this world is looking great daisylee thumbs up it's a big improvement on base MF from what you have done so far, I love the parking spots lots of towns in the Aussie bush have them like that or slightly angled, some here and in UK I know have them in the middle of two streets as well like in the gap you have between two parallel streets.

Thanks! I have also done one residential section where the parking is on an alley. And I have the one section with a strip between the rows of houses.

HA, TOWNIES! Take this! You now can only fill up so many parking spaces with your ugly cars! Laughing

Here is a part of town with an alley.





the commercial strip on the square, being redone from my old hood, with parking in back





there is a new bridge where the falling apart one was, and I always thought it odd that there were no falls into the lake at the start of the river, so I have added them, but they do not show ATM as I am in EIG

The Lord Camden Inn is coming along well, I think. Smile Mine does not have the shops on the first floor, at least so far. And I tried the white on the first level but liked the dark brick better for all.

LoCat, you will like that this one has parallel parking. Big Grin
