Here are a few pictures from Nilxis’s Barcelona in progress, which is shaping up to be a realistic Sims model of the city. On the left are real-life pictures of Barcelona landmarks, and on the right are Nilxis’s versions.
There are lots of good base game-only worlds:
- Meadow Glen - this original version is my all-time favorite world, even after so many expansion packs. I’m really picky about the kinds of houses and community buildings in downloaded worlds, as it seems like a lot of people don’t have a good mix of sizes and price, but everything from this site is great. Meadow Glen is really nice because it has a realistic suburban feel, with a consistent style throughout the neighborhood.
- Niua Simoa - its featured upload status on MTS is well deserved. This world is really beautiful and I would recommend getting the save game so you can appreciate the interesting mix of residents and their background stories. Again, I really appreciate the architecture in this world. Look at the comments for more pictures.
- Elba Village - another from My Sim Realty, but I haven’t played this one.
- Autumn Falls - a nice, small bare-bones world for the base game. Would work well if you like to use your own houses and Sims.
- Vice City - based on the world from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, which is based on Miami. Looks very interesting, but it’s not really my style so I haven’t tried it. Be aware it’s a beta version.
- The World Index - these are all the base game-only worlds listed in the World Index. I think Coconut Island is the only one I’ve tried from that list, so that’s the only one I can vouch for (a great world; make sure you get version 2.0 because that’s the base game version).
This is Cascade Falls, a complete overhaul of Bridgeport and in-progress world by HystericalParoxysm. She released a test version yesterday and, like everything she makes, it’s fantastic: zero routing issues, a lot of small to medium lots, and really nice terrain painting.
If they update the world and release a new version, this save game won’t work anymore, but at least you’ll get the gist of it. haha
Thanks to my Austrian partner who’s slowly been helping me learn German!
Okay so I’ve had a couple of requests to make a tutorial regarding this so…voila! It’s not very good, I’m crap at explaining things and I have bizarre ways of going about stuff so I’ve probably made it really complicated but anyway this is how I make photo walls for my game :3
Things you’ll need:
- TSR Workshop
- A nice frame 8) (I’m using ones by ATS3 from this set because they’re really pretty and they fit together well :3)
- Some pictures you want to hang on your pixel walls
- Photoshop (and I presume you can do the same in GIMP but don’t ask me how because I cannot understand that program for the life of me)(also I have a reaaaally old version of Photoshop so yours might work a little different than mine)
- DDS Plugin for Photoshop
WHAT IS THIS FROM?!
