Great Kingdom of

n8xs.jpg

Throughout the last centuries,
Texca Hills
has remained in
constant nurture
to its people and culture. Just like in a
family
, the
Kingdom
has always kept record of the various occurrences that have happened through its many years of existence.

For many decades, the
crown
kept these archives, historical artifacts, and other royal jewels and articles
hidden away
from the public. This was to protect them from burglary or other issues. In
1889
, the crown decided it was time to
reveal these treasures
and share them with the people they represented, the people of Texca Hills

By
1901
, the city had designated a small building as the
Texca Hills Historical Society
, which eventually great to 13 museums and a large museum district by 2000.

Welcome to this great part of the capital,
The Museum District
, and enjoy its forestry and peaceful education.

Settled deeply in protected forested areas, there are common public spaces for people to rest between the museums to lunch, reflect, and rest.

Nice! looks like a pristine district!

 

Thank you! Would you suggest that I open the road on the east end?

 

Looks great! A very nice district indeed. :D

 

Thank you! Should I make all districts green or add plazas? 

 

Great! Beautiful pictures. 

 

Thank you! 

 

interesting museums, loved the area, very green.

 

I wanted to add a beach feature under the bridge but it seemed too crammed

With such a nice museum area, tis a shame to only have the default Maxis roundabout filler there. It really needs a distinctive focal piece. There are plenty custom ones out there to choose from.

 

IMO, it would be the icing on the cake.

 

Edit: And these might help take the edgyness off of those avenues branching off from the round about. It's not in the description image, but there are lots in that set that are half woods & half sidewalk texture just like the ones you have there. Would make for some nice straight lines running along the aves. http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1197
