Part 2 of the Finale - Grasmere East

Replies:

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!

Akallan: :yes:

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.

korver: Cheers!

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.

Nice work, I love those farm fields.

And nice use of @Fantozzi's relots too. I think that's the first time I've seen anyone use them extensively, they look great!

Amazing work as always.  I'm happy to see the C.P.'s diagonal homes getting some good mileage in this CJ *:thumb:

Lovely as always - totally detailed. 

You almost got me with those fences right next to the 'diagonal road', and then it clicked - you'd flipped the image. :P

Great work as always.

I really like some of the use of fences between the fences on lots to extend them. It's hard to find new praise for your entries, so well done and thanks for all the pictures!

Wow ... how you put the props together, how you compose. How I love to watch and discover little things - f.e. on picture no.6 there is a funny little blue car, must be something like this:

One Question: the long building on top of the soccer field in picture no.13 - what is it?
