Some pics from my neighbourhood. I really miss the neighbourhood decoration capabilities of TS2. Reason why I have only built one house and slightely decorated another one. And I'm afraid to download houses for fear of destroying the "moodlets".

Littlesweetiecori, the second picture looks realy breathtaking. Love it.

Penny, I love all your pictures! They are so amazing- and the scenery is fabulous I agree.
lilsweetiecori, the second pic is beautiful! I'm jealous of your graphics.. the shadows on the house look very realistic.
moeppl, the black and white is really cool in the picture enhances it well.

These pics sure don't stand up to others in the thread, but here they are

Wow, GORGEOUS pics, everyone! There are really some stunning views in Sunset Valley and Riverview.

I'm not sure if this is the right place for these pics, but I downloaded a clean Sunset Valley and am in the process of placing all of the rabbit hole buildings and adding landscaping around them (benches, lights, trees, etc.). I decided to put the "fun" places down by the pier (except for the theater -- it's a little too big). I'm calling the new town Clarey Beach.

Thanks, declandabest! Seaside-y is what I was going for.

Night Racer, you're right, it's a huge project, but you could always just keep the pre-made homes and just empty them of the pre-made Sims. You could copy them all to the library and then place them back in a different arrangement. Of course, some of the lots are weird sizes and nothing else will fit in them, but you could either leave the original lot there or build something only on those weird lots -- still a lot less to build than doing the whole town! Plus there's always lots from MTS and other sites...but yeah, I know what you mean. This will take awhile. I'd love to see some other people do it, though, because I'm sure they'd have great ideas, and I find it inspiring.

All the pictures in this thread are very pretty. I have to say that while the neighborhood decorating limits are less, the ability to take beautiful screenshots of the neighborhood are much better.
I only have taken one picture in neighborhood view so far.

Lovely picture Rainy_Day!

Here's my new downtown. Got inspired by Jenba's pictures and moved all shopping buildings by the sea.

Thanks! It does have a very nice feeling in game.

Wow, I love that, Crocobaura! I like that you put more buildings down there than I did, and closer together, too. Looks more like a real town that way. I might just have to re-do mine.

Rainy_Day - That is such a pretty picture. Love the butterflies.

Sumpsychochic - Beautiful! Look at all those fishies jumpin'.

WOW beautiful pics! I'm currently remaking Sunset Valley into what will hopefully be a recreation of my favorite hood from Ts2. The good part is that Sunset Valley's terrain is very similar to the one I had in Ts2, the only problem is that I can't place lots wherever I want
#22 Old 21st Jul 2009 at 6:48 AM
heres my version of the seaside shops. I tried to go for a Boardwalk feel...but since the lots are not exectly next to each other (theres a 1 tile space between lots! WTF) its not exactly what i wanted...but i like i need to figure out what to do with that massive rectangular lot all the old rabit hole buildings used to be in... :S

at night, when lit up, the boardwalk is to bright, to many street lights. but i couldnt care less at this point so its staying the way it is. :P

#23 Old 21st Jul 2009 at 2:01 PM
That looks awesome, NightRacer! I love the wooden flooring on the sidewalk. It does give it a real boardwalk feel.

I do really like the look of the buildings closer together, too. Very nice.

And yeah, that one-tile space between the lots is annoying. :-/

So you we're influenced by something that was originally influenced by you?

Can't find stuff in build and buy mode?
