Thank you so much! I am eager to make the Sims but I want to build the city first.

It's really nice! However I don't think it will upload to the exchange as a populated world so either it will be unpopulated or you can upload to this forum as a save file. (Don't ask me how, I have no idea  ;))

I am making the first neighborhood. It is small and affordable for Sim's just starting out. Right outside of Arena Heights the neighborhood is located on Cranberry Lane and Tiffic Street. The neighbor hood is called Tiffic Square (the houses aren't really in a square).

The first house is quite close to town.

Its a bit more roomy than most. A good family home.

All these houses in Tiffic Square are 1-2 bedrooms and 1-2 bathrooms. These 2 houses are located next to each other on Cranberry Lane.

Right across the street from the homes listed about are these two 1 bedroom bungalows.

Next is the Cherry blossom house.

The last house on Cranberry Lane is this little house. Has fenced in yard with pool!

Now onto Tiffic Street. On the side near the Cherry Blossom house is this...

Across the streets from this house is...

The most expensive home in the neighborhood. Now that's something to brag about.

This home just wishes it was on the beach... has sun-room, fenced in pool, parking spot and extremely beige.

Sweet Grammy's pink house. So cute! Just look at the flower boxes.

Then there is the very last house in the neighborhood.

What do you think? Pretty cute huh?



Here is the overall neighborhood.

It looks great! Did you build all the houses yourself?
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Thank you! I try to get people to a least smile when reading it.
I love it! It is supercute. ;)
Thank you! It kind of looks like the neighborhood I live in LOL!
:O really nice! Will there be any mansions in the town?  ;)
Of coarse! They will have a neighborhood all its own. I love the mansions, but I find them SO much harder to build!
I wish I could try something as good as this myself :)
Well you can try it without posting and if it turns out then  you can post it to the forum. Thank you though!

We will start with the Military base.
Name: Hiding Hills Military Base
Location: On Hiding Hills (no street connecting) Its a top secret base.


The military keeps a close eyes on  this side of Paprika Island.

Now we jump to Palms-Ahead Road. This is were the muckrakers go to work writing juicy stories and reporting the bland news.
Name:  Scoop Incorporated
Tabloids: The Paprika Press (local newspaper) and the Simlebrity (gossip magazine)
Location: Palms-Ahead Road Downtown Arena Heights. Placed strategically near the Pink Piano and All that Funk for easy celebrity access. 



Now the Sports Arena!
Name: Paprika Spices Arena
Sport Played: Ultimate Frisbee (I am not sure if I spelled that right)
Team Name: Paprika Spices
Mascot: Paco the Paprika (that's not lame at all  ;D)
Colors: Orange and White
Location:  North Palms-Ahead Road


Also on Palms-Ahead road is a small park
Park Name: City Escape

Which is right next to a...

Jumbo Penthouse Apartment Building

(That's just from ground level)

And lastly for this entry is a alternative school
Name: New World Education
Colors: Navy and White
Mascot: A Book
Private School

I have to fill in gaps because I need room for the Sims 3 Pets which I should be getting some time this week. I am going to add the Pets into this town as well.

Thanks for reading!

I felt like all the names and areas and stuff became kind of confusing so I decided to post this map. Its just off the things I have covered + street and area names. Here is it...

Hope it helps a bit.

The town is indeed coming along very nicely. What are you going to call it? (sorry if I've missed it) Also, thank you for inspiring me to begin working on my own town; I'm not going to post about it on here but it's a very enjoyable process nevertheless. I hope mine turns out as great as yours!

Thank you! Nope you haven't missed anything, I did not name the town yet. I plan on naming it at the end. Well I would love to see how yours turns out, if you want you can post a couple of the best pictures on this tread.

-Ahem-

I'm a little late but would love to build a home for you.. I can see you already made one but you can move, right? Right...? I love building for you, as you can see. :P

Also, feel free to request a home by PMing me! Always happy to help.

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

We are moving out of the city and into the Country! Well... kind of. Today I will show your the transition building and businesses on the way out to the country.

Now the Country like plaza...
Buildings in plaza: Theater, Bookstore, Grocery Store.

Then we have a little museum

Location: Tiffic Street


Jumping north on Palms-Ahead Road we have a lovely park...

Now we have another Subway stop... with a twist

Here is the map of this area so things don't get confusing

For those aspiring riders...
Name: I.R.C (International Riding Club)
Location: Lovely Lane 


Now for the housing...

This is the family farm house that you will want to inherit. Placed on a large lot that has plenty of room for a large garden.

A little out of the way...
Location: Overlook Lane


Here is the view
