PREVIEW: The Sims 3 Alpine County – PROGRESS PART 3
Description: Large American seaside city with suburbs, golf course, forest, countryside and mountains with Texan terrain.
Stage: Beta (unfinished)
Custom Content: None
I haven’t updated posted an update on here for a while, mainly because my keyboard broke and I am typing with the on-screen keyboard while I wait for a new one to arrive from Amazon!
I’ll keep it short as it is taking forever to type on this thing. The commercial district is now finished, thanks to lots by Dawid9089. (Just a few tweaks left over)
It consists of a Taco Bell, Subway, Quaker Steak & Lube (all three thanks to Dawid9089), a Mega Mall, Mega Gym with Olympic pool, a hospital, supermarket and convenience store. The commercial district isn’t meant to be that pretty, it should represent suburban sprawl with parking lots everywhere!
Next, the luxury resort’s landscape is done, now it’s just the lots to go:
I tried to export the world yesterday so that I could get so nice angled photos for you all, but it wouldn’t work again (I kept getting ‘world export failed!’). I’ll try deleting cache and re-installing tonight to see if I can try it again. If not, I hope it doesn’t mean the file is corrupt and I have lost the latest copy of Alpine County! :(
Instead, you can have some of these preview photos:
Hi Anyay and Lil Gem, Thank you very much for offering to help out! The world is coming along nicely, but you will really help to speed it up so it will be ready to play sooner! :D I’ve posted some lots that you can choose from with a description of their brief, let me know if any of them appeal to you :)
- Red: 55×55 Commercial Lot -This lot is a private members club that will be in a Art Deco style Jazz club, similar to the one in Startlight Shores or in Los Aniegos (like here) but more glitzy and expensive. Think Great Gatsby style!
- Blue: 30×30 Residential Lot -This is the tallest residential tower in Alpine County, so it can also be really expensive. I was thinking a modern playboy penthouse 1 or 2 bed double story apartment made for parties. You can make it as expensive as you like, and can use Tony Stark’s house for inspiration :D
- Yellow: 40×40 Commercial Lot -This is actually a direct copy of the club from Late Night, but I was hoping it might be possible to tweak it so players got something new? Keeping it as a Vampire club is fine, but anything elegan will do :)
There’s also the pink one above, this lot is 40×48 and is already partially built, so if you would like this one I can send it over to you through WeTransfer or on the Exchange. I don’t know whether this one should be a commercial or residential lot yet. If you have any ideas you’re welcome to make this lot anything you like. It already has a pool at the back and has been styled to look slightly dated and not very rich (I want not just the wealthy Sims to be able to live by the sea!).
Admin will also be updating your accounts to Contributers if you’ve registered so you can post how you’re getting with the lots on the site :)
I thought I would add a few new screenshots of how the world is coming along: :)
And here is a link to the progress map for Anyay and Lil Gem, for anyone who likes to explore worlds without knowing what they look like, then don’t click on it as it will give it all away! See MAP
