Hello all! I wanted to give you a preview of what's to come in my legacy while I hammer out my plans for the next few chapters. I've decided to move the Bee's to a new neighborhood, simply because Lucky Palms is starting to annoy me. I really like the layout of Sunset Valley, and I think that SV is a little more versatile. I felt limited in LP since most of the structures are southwestern themed or mid-century modern--I wanted more options. I also got annoyed by how spread out LP is (which is a weird complaint, I know) So, in my free time, I've been revamping SV in CaW. I wanted to make it more of a coastal tourist town, maybe a little like Avalon Village on Catalina Island. This is what I've done so far:
I did not realize how long it takes to place trees, rocks, etc. I haven't changed the map much, except to expand one area near the mountains/simhenge. I'm turning that part into a little trailer park, complete with a rundown strip mall and a drive-in diner.
Across the street is the fire station and a coffeehouse. I'm going to put a bar between them:
The library is going to take forever:
I also created a nice little beach bar:
I created a boardwalk, too. I'm planning to download a ferris wheel to make it make board-walky:
This is an unfinished port or pier or something (I didn't get any farther than adding boats and going "Okay, good enough"):
Building is taking forever (obvs) so I'll probably plop down some premade houses to speed up the process. I have to admit I'm quite proud of the town square, though. I can't wait to send my simmies out into this world.
I've also obviously been away for awhile; I was very ill for a couple of weeks, and I had to finish up a lot of work at the end of the semester. I posted to MTS a couple of days ago promising a new chapter ASAP. However, shortly after I posted to MTS, I received a call informing me my grandfather passed away. Thus, I haven't felt much like writing the past couple of days (but I have gotten a shit-ton of mindless building done). I'll try to start writing this week. Needless to say, my next chapter will probably be a little lighthearted. The next few chapters will also still take place in LP while I finish up SV.
Thanks for all your patience. I have to be honest--I would have given up on Polly & Co. a long time ago if it weren't for you all. <3
