Between Heaven and Hell, the city of Rio de Mayo





Thanks! The avenue is not a Mod, it is 100% made with the Lot Editor, the textures come from a pack made by Heblem, which is not available for download, and the medians are props made by Erjolog, and are available on the STEX. Check on the Simtropolis Omnibus section, there is a great tutorial on how to make your own textures!

Thanks a lot!

Thank you! Again, it's 100% lot editor, so nothing functional, but you can actually use those props in Maxis avenues, by creating a lot and transit-enabling it! The medians are available here:

As for the houses, they are available in the LBT house pack:

Rio de Mayo


Okay,so moving West to the main Island, Trinidad! Its capital, Rio de Mayo is San Theodoros' second largest city, with more than a million souls. Because of its strategic position on the Atlantic Ocean, it was used as the main hub to trade goods. Rio de Mayo's port is still the country's busiest port and thanks to the development of manufacturing, agriculture, oil and mining industry, the city is now San Theodoros' richest city, despite huge social inequalities that remain.

Founded by the Portuguese, the city still reflects the Portuguese colonization and 80% of the inhabitants (called the Mariocas) speak Portuguese.

Welcome to Rio de Mayo!

Centro: Downtown Rio de Mayo. Because of its early development, many neoclassical buildings can be found in the center of Rio de Mayo, which is a unique feature in San Theodoros. Some classical architecture can also be found in that area, the most famous landmark being the Teatro Municipal, inspired by the Opera Garnier in Paris.


Estádio Jornalista Assis Chateaubriand known as the Maracaxá: Despite its small size, this stadium is considered the temple of football, which is considered a religion in San Theodoros.


A football game between San Theodoros' most famous teams, Flamengo do San Theodoros and Fluminense do San Theodoros


Morro de Nova Esperança: Because of the huge development of the city, people from all over the country came to Rio de Mayo. Some found success and wealth, others ended up in favelas, the most notorious being the Favela da Nova Esperança. It is often said that Rio de Mayo is a city located at the corner of Heaven and Hell.

well, there is no doubt that this city was inspired by Rio de Janeiro :p

I just dont understand the language of the country, is it spanish or portuguese?

I see some names in portuguese, than the news headline in spanish, just a bit confused :p

but anyway, that favela is very "nice", very realistic :p

Very nice, it's obvious that was inspired in Rio de Janeiro, but, what kind of language is that ? a blend of spanish and portuguese ? lol, anyway, it's very cool too, maybe could just be a kind of accent or dialect historically developed from the european or brazilian variation.
