A few days ago I MMP'd a lake on some open space, but it looked pretty dumpy. I asked anyone viewing my CJ to submit some suggestions, and it totally worked. This is what it looked like originally. (Not my best work. Even Sim dogs refused to poop there.)
...So I blew out a bunch of trees and rocks, simplified the look, added some houses, and called it Connifer Lake. Here's what it looks like now...
Yeah baby! Now Sim dogs are pooping everywhere!
Thanks to Schriefer who said I should throw in a low density neighborhood, and to 47Ply, who suggested I remove the road surrounding the lake, which I did. (I bumped it back a bit and added in more pine trees.) Pioneer thought I should drop a Walmart, but I've never seen a Walmart next to a lake. Besides, I can't have kids getting spanked next to such a pristine piece of property.
Mattb325 houses are da bomb!!! Using anything less would be uncivilized.
This is the future sight of a lot more dogga poopy.
Still no trains. Not sure why they're not rolling through. I love trains and want lots of them, but I've only had one train so far.
Gotta give this area some Maxis love. It's still fun to sprinkle in some of the originals here and there.
Thanks again for checking out my city. Thoughts, thumbs up, stars, comments are always welcome.
