Suburban View into Downtown Summerset

Babolat85... WOW! That second shot of Shimizu's freeway is just awesome. And I think the haphazard farmlands are so unique! Great work!

Posting in this thread for the first time.

I've been playing with building my own terrains for a while. I just finished this one and I have never been more pleased. I tend to favor very small buildable areas and I had to have a couple beach lots.

This was the result:


The beachfront area is totally flat and allows for flat beach lots. The upper area is raised a bit and also flat to allow for an airport.

As soon as photobucket stops maintaining itself I will post the decorated neighborhood.

I need a name for this little hamlet too.

So this is my little neighborhood decorated so far.


I am drawing a complete blank on a name though. I can't keep calling this place Testing.

Wow, Jargon... I love your little hood!! And you did an amazing job decorating it! The center looks a little like a flower... (hint for name)

Babolat85, I love the shot of the train coming around the corner. Your neighborhood looks like a great place.

beeps, Great shot over the balcony, love the towers.

Jargon That neighborhood is wonderful, I always get stuck on names. Sometimes I try to name it with something to do what's in the neighborhood map. Very well thought out neighborhood!

Thanks! I'm really proud of it. I tend to stick with small lots (nothing over 3x3) because my computer is on the slow side and gets laggy with anything larger.

Nice 'hoods all!

Babolat: Great as always and a nice idea to put the motorway on top of the railway bridges.

Jagon: Nice, compact looking neighbourhood, I can never think of names either! If you want to go with the flower idea suggested by CinnePin, I thinks Florasville sounds nice.

Elwood (last post of v2 thread): That looks like it's coming along nicely, a good start!

@ amora_selvagen - Awesome rebuilding of Pleasantview! You've given me a few ideas (and inspiration!) from what you've done using Criquette's neighborhood deco. :D

Babolat - Amazing as always! I love the second shot and the way you used the hightway pieces. They just won't fit in my hood.
Boolpropped - very cute! I just have to admire the crisp clear photos you make *green with envy*
Jargon - Very nice hood! I guess you don't have to worry about gamelag or wait for it to load. I try so hard to keep my hoods small, but when I'm playtesting them I think they could be much smaller. Good job!
Amora_s - I love seeing pictures like this, they are such a great inspiration!

Great work everyone!

Jargon - Your neighborhood looks so adorable yet realistic. It just goes to show how decoration can make a huge difference to a hood. I can't think of any names though, I'm awful at that. I've been mulling over a name for my own hood for ages. Maybe you could use a town name generator?
Babolat85 - Beautiful neighborhood, so realistic. I love the freeway thingy stretching on for miles in the second pic, and I love how it looks more like a piece of land than a little isolated hood. Most hoods look like a bundle of houses in a large empty field of sort, whereas your hood looks like one part of a much bigger world. That sounds weird, I can't explain it well, either way I love it!
boolPropped - I like that shot; it looks really calm and serene. I've never been able to set my neighborhoods up in such a way that urban/suburban fit seamlessly together. Can you show us more of Summerset (that's the name, right)?
amora selvagen - You've really made Pleasantview look really different, very nice! I'm rebuilding Pleasantview myself, and I like that instead of moving the houses around and such (like I've done) you've focused on the neighborhood decorations (which I've been shamefully neglecting) instead.

Babolat85, I love the highway and how you've placed the farmland! You always make awesome 'hoods. <3
boolPropped, I love your graphics, and the city looks amazing. :D
Jargon, that terrain is so cute, you've decorated it perfectly. I suck at names too, but it looks like it'd suit a floral name, as someone above me said. Good work on it.
amora_selvagen, that looks so awesome! If only Pleasantview always looked like that. I love how you've used things by Criquette. :D

Here's Milly, but I renamed it Riverbrook.. so here's Riverbrook. :P
It's still empty, but I'm slowly getting it filled up.

Summerset (Overview)
For you, maeve!

As you can see, Summerset is sparsely populated at the moment. I've set it up so that residential lots are located west of the river, and the city area (including community lots and apartments) are located east of the river.




~*~

maeve... You're right with the name; it's called Summerset :D

gonebynow... Thanks! Riverbrook is an adorable town. I love the farmland areas!
