Some More New Areas

Replies:

feyss: Thank you very much!

Simmer2: Thanks for your comment. Also please tell me how add MMPs onto transit tiles?

Tyberius06: Cheers! They're a most welcome addition, I tried the MMP versions though they are not quite as versatile...

SC4L0ver: What really made me like Simmer2's new walls were the gated sections and the ruined walls- perfect for breaking up orthogonal and diagonal walls.

_Michael: Thank you! I use a few different layers to make the tracks more rougher and organic.

sejr99999: Correction- painting with MMPs.

kschmidt: Thanks! What do you mean by the stone side road?

tonyr: Sure!

JP Schriefer: Thanks a lot!

Sciurus: I used the LE to take a simple grass park texture lot and add a prop family of C.P.'s houses. Then I went to ILive's Reader to make the new lot have a transparent texture. As for the pictures, yes they are a little darker than usual, it is something I noticed a few days after posting the entry. I guess I overdid the contrast a little...

 

Entry 16: Some More New Areas

Here is one more small visual feast. Giving how things are getting busier this half term with the teaching then it will be four-five weeks to finish off Pololomia and there are only three city tile corners which need to be completed. Anyway- enjoy!

In the centre of this picture there was this blank area to be filled in.

By adding Simmer2's Bricks and Blocks Building Supplies I realised how I could complete the area: mixed light industrial/commercial combined with a small park.

And yet more fields finished off.

 

5.

Given the large areas to MMP, each finished field feels like a marathon.

 

6.

And now it takes longer to finish off the field edges/walls/fences.

 

7.

When I create these fields the first things I include are the fences/walls and the tracks.

This helps tell me exactly where everything should go.

I also try not to repeat myself when creating fields. Sometimes there will be areas with similar MMP combos, other times each field has a different MMP combo.

MOAR grid-busting!

The Maxis Highway Override FA pieces are surprisingly MMP friendly!

The boundary between the urban and the rural...

Some time in late March Pololomia will be fully completed.

And then the complete city tile tour can commence!

Thanks a lot for the comments and the suggestions.

I'll see you in late March!

Thank you for the reply ! Any road I may have mentoned but this one does not have any real need except maybe access to a deeper meadow ?

 

What purpose does this road serve serve ?

This would be an access road for the farmer to harvest crops from that field.

Thanks, excelent work, maybe the farmfield MMP´s need some more detail ; a potatoe acre is something quit different from a cornfield !

Sincerely yours,

kschmidt
