SimsBury - Alta Vista

Sign in to follow this  



Altavista Introduction

Altavista is a peaceful town is the northern-central area of Simsbury. Most of the area is made up of rural farm areas and middle-class Sims. Some of the major landmarks of the area include the Sim TV station, the Organic-Biomoleculatedplantsandotherstuff Co, The Simvista Soccer Stadium and the Sim-Achetectual college.

As you will notice most of the buildings in SimsBury have the prefix "Sim" infront of their name, it shows how much the Sims have developed their culture. The only people that think this was a good idea were the Sims, everyone else thought it was confusing and annoying...3.gif

3-1 "Road to Altavista" Highway 81 is the main transport route to reach the small town...


3-2 "Technology meets Enviromental" Organic-Biomoleculatedplantsandotherstuff Co's headquarters. Rumors suggest that the company is testing out its new skyfarm to grow new species of plants. The company also added a windturbine farm to keep the enviromentalists happy.


3-3 "Cafe Laval" A small french cafe and a rural church. The area is usually flocked with hundreds of people on Sundays.


3-4 "Baire River" The town's sewage is treated first before entering a stream or a lake. Here the treated water flows into the Baire River. On the top is Bob's Cow Farm, from there the cattle are loaded on to freight trains and sent off to other farms.


3-5, 3-6 "Rural biking" Many of the sims travel to their workplace by bike in the summer months. So the mayor had decided to fund a biking program by building rural bike paths and giving citizens a $40 off incentive to buy a bike.



3-7 "Suburbs in the wilderness" A small community on the outskirts of the town. At the bottom there is an elementery school and a highschool where the founder of the school was swedish. Today the schools are run by the SSB (SimsBury School Board)


3-8 "Central Altavista" This is the town center of Alta Vista. In the picture you can see the Sim TV station, Alta Vista Elementery school (SSB), The local library and the main police station run by the (SimsBury Police Deparment). You can also see an air-purification plant in testing by the OxYgeN Co.


3-9 "Downtown Shops" The downtown shopping district is usually flocked with people on the weekends. However the shops close in the afternoon on sundays to give everyone a rest. An outdoor pedestrian mall was built to allow market stalls to be built.


3-10 "SimVista Soccer Stadium (MLS)" A few years back Alta Vista was granted a MLS team by the Simsbury board. It is due to the fact that AltaVista is the largest town within a surrounding area. On Fridays many people in the surrounding area come to watch a game.


3-11 "Vista Sqaure" Another shopping district on the outskirts of Alta Vista. It includes a movie theatre, two grocery stores and a multi-mart.
