10000000000000: Thanks, man! That list helped. I'm still in the process of adding stuff, so I'll work on mixing my foliage.

MamaLuigi945: Thanks a lot. Yeah, the Maxis trees are...um...there. Again, I'm working on mixing in other bits. It'll take some time, though. :)

LastTrueChamp: Thanks.

vivapanda: Thank you.

TowerDude: Ha, thanks! You'll have to check with local realtors to see if there are any lots left!

cifa: Thank you very much.

NMUSpidey: Ha, thanks a lot. It helps when you have more tools at your disposal to work with when it comes to beautification and the shore line. Gotta build up the resources!

vortext: Thanks for the list! I'll be sure to download some of what's there.

Crossing Founder's River


As Smeethe grew, people branched out across the river. The town is now a full-fledged city, and it has been growing rapidly ever since the interstate connected to Co. Rd. A.


Once crossing the river, you'll immediately notice some rather wealthy-looking homes. These are old-money homes, with generation after generation passing the land down to their younger kin. While this area is 'new' by Smeethe standards, it is still quite old.


Right across the river, butting up against some farmland, sits Smeethe County High, the county's only high school. The facilities and campus are top notch.


Across the interstate and down County Road A sits the town of Skeever. Skeever is a small town and still offers agricultural learning opportunities for children in grades K - 8. Students can learn husbandry, agriculture, and various other 'rural' activities.


Founder's River runs through the heart of the region and is named to honor those brave people who first conquered the wilderness and settled in Smeethe County.


I hope you've enjoyed this entry. I'd like to say thank you again to EVERYONE who has taken the time to look at and comment on this City Journal. I'm always looking for advice on how to improve as well as sets that would help me achieve a more realistic look. Have a wonderful evening and a wonderful week. :)

Hi there. Nice nice work. I like how you have incorporated farmland in with the development. You might want to smooth out some of those roads (road behind Smeethe County High and by the baseball field). Great work overall!

Awesome! I like the fields by the school the most :D , you can use slope mods to do what JGellock was talking about. Ennedi has a great one! Great work so far though :)

My advice at this point would be to either get a slope mod or to work on smoothing out your roads and such. Think of it like real life, before they build a building or road they usually do earthwork to give it a smooth, stable foundation. You should do the same for your lots and roads. Keep up the good work, this is a fine CJ.

What exactly do slope mods do? Would they help when placing buildings and stuff? What slope mods do you recommend? I see 10000000000000 suggested one by Ennedi...I'll do a search at the ol' Exchange. :)

Slope mods make the land more smooth under your roads, rail, etc. But they can sometimes be harder to build with. It adds a larger dimension to civil engineering to the game, and can make your city look even more realistic.

P.S. I found you.
