Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


This simple set gives you anoter option in decorating your hoods.
Now using these custom hood decorations, you can add a tramline to your town, or community, or whatever!




Important:
As the Decorative Road Pieces Set, this tramway set is mostly for advanced simmers, with some kind of experience on making custom neighborhoods and using of neighborhood camera modds.

If you don’t have enough info about all this stuff, I recommend you to check the MTS2 tutorials.

Each object of this set can be placed over the road and also over the lot.
It is highly recommended to have a Free Time EP installed, to be able to edit exiting terrain, for better use of this set. Because of it was created for totally flat terrain, it may look bad on any kind of hills, mountains and terrain slopes – please keep this in mind when you will work on a decorative tramway in your neighborhood.

You will also need a lot of patience and some experience during tramline construction, since there is no snapping to grid in neighborhood mode and the length of tramline piece is about one ‘hood tile.

Installation:
Just put all the files from the zip to your S2 downloads folder.
All the elements will appear in ‘Misc’ submenu of Neighborhood decorations.




Enjoy!






Polygon Counts:
Tramcar: 364
Tramway piece: 296
Tramway loop: 4265

Beautiful , I downloaded all your creations for neighbourhood. I want to ask , on the first picture in "Screenshot" how many SC4 tiles have you left for the tramway line? they seem 2 to me , but I'm not sure.

The dark side is SO couture... <3

As another piece of feedback, would it possible to have a curved track-piece for more complex track layouts?

I really love this set, although I could wish for a curved piece which would make this an absolute awesome set.

this is really cool but trams don't look like that anymore(at least not here)! This looks more like some retro old version tram that was here until few years ago.
