I finally stopped being a chicken about using Hoodreplace, (worrying about my game becoming corrupt) backed up my files and took the plunge. I’ve been seriously outgrowing the current map and the layout was just too impractical for what I wanted to do. I just wanted a simple, flat terrain that I can work as a base for an urban neighbourhood. I used the game’s sample.sc4 map to replace New Simtopi’s. After a bit of terrain editting and placing all the lots in proper order, I’m now happy with how New SimTopi is looking.
This is the “bad end” of town. I’m sure those cooling towers don’t quite belong in the city but I sort of liked them in the background.
Warehouse, factory and older buildings in this area are being converted to condominiums and apartments.
Criquette @ MtS2 makes awesome neighbourhood decor. I couldn’t wait to use these embankments. I’m currently making room for his bus station.
