Abrams124: Yep, once more unto the breach!
_Michael: Having a smaller plugins folder helped. About three months ago I had deleted everything in the plugins folder and then rebuilt it.
CT14: I utilised a very heavy MMP approach for several non-farming areas, part of this was inspired by Fasan's Krokanien MD on SC4D. Fasan often used MMPs to expand building profiles and create scenes to the sides of and to the backs of buildings.
JP Schriefer: Thanks; I realised it would be the best way to bow out- one last city tile with large but highly detailed scenes.
sunda: Thank you!
raynev1: With the ruralness cranked to 11!
tariely: The grey road is a road texture lot found in Bipin's Industrial Essentials- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3086. The cool thing about it is that it gives the appearance of driveways ACTUALLY connecting to the road!
feyss: It's a large finale.
mike_oxlong: Keep an eye out for the links I will posting in this entry and the remaining nine. I'm going to be revealing a lot of tips and secrets about how I create these rural areas.
Part 2 of the Finale - Grasmere East
The tour starts with Grasmere East. This is the first part of Grasmere that I completed and it all started with that grey concrete road...
For the grey road I used the road texture lots found in Bipin's Industrial Essentials.
caspervg's Oosterzele Recycling Centre- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3296.
kingofsimcity's Anyone For Tennis park facility- a very cool sports addition! Link: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/31324-aot-tennis-parks-beta-green-green-tennis-greens/.
And to the top-right is one of the relots from Fantozzi's The Big Paeng Theory, this is something I highly recommend for park fillers in both urban and rural settings.
One big-ass mosaic!
These R$ diagonal houses are part of jmyers2043's housing set- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2822, while the diagonal fillers lining the road are from SFBT's diagonal fillers- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1197.
To the right are some of T Wreck's 5x5 housing relots- http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/24639-stratton-apartments-multi-building-lots/.
For the fields I use MMPs from Chrisadams3997's RRP Pasture Flora (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1886) and the various grass and flower MMPs from girafe.
And at the top is a park made from FrankU's Dutch Parks set- http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/30548-franku-dutch-parks/.
I extensively used c.p.'s 19th Century $$ Houses http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=686.
And to the top left is another one of the relots from Fantozzi's The Big Paeng Theory.
This Friday we move to the Grasmere Industrial Estate.
