The new layout looks good! I like the parade street with the parks. Having houses along the canal will give it a more dense atmosphere, but the view certainly would be better with a sidewalk only

Yes that's it ... I have to give this some thought, but I think I might go for a promenade along the canal and move the houses to the other side of the canal.

What type of neighbourhood is it? If it's an upscale, representative area, they will sure have a promenade withouth houses blocking their view.

I haven't quite decided on that either, yesterday I had a leg stuck in the testhouse I made for Angkor Wat. This morning I'm in upscale house territory.

I have to think about the shops along the Paradestreet as well. My original thought was some kind of asian market stores selling turist stuff, and I can't really see how upscale modern is going to look, but I don't have to decide on that now.

As a lovely looking paradestreet to the middle island, it's probably going to look better with a clean wall along the canal, so I think I go for the promenade instead.

While it's too early to have it's own personality or theme yet, there is the beginnings of something really really nice here. Well done Volvenom.

Thank you, I might be fiddling too much with planning and redoing things, but I tend get stuck in a cul-de-sack, and can't get out. I have to start doing something.

You are back building in TS3! I love the idea of a promenade.

I keep working a bit from time to time. Today I finished the walls around the palace island, and put in one of the Chinese bridges. I have also put in a road to connect rich houses by the canal beside the palace.





I'm working in the area of the red circle at the moment

Any ideas or suggestions?

I have been thinking about a tropical island or mainland theme and have tested Brntwaffles perfect day mod with IP water. I don't know is this tropical? If I put in some palms and tropical trees and colorful flowers, can this work? See the pictures below in the attachment list.



This is a place in the Shacks area by the big bridge. I was thinking a big or smaller lots to shape a favella area like the one's in Brasil.



I'm working on the layout for the beachside, but I'm not liking this for a reason.



I'm not quite liking this layout, so I have started on the mountainsides instead.

Beautiful photos! This is Sims so nothing has to make sense. If you want to mix things, go ahead and just have fun with it.
