I recently reinstalled TS3 and decided to start again with Project Fenbury. I am somewhat embarrassed as I am not gifted with use of CAW but I am pleased with the progress I have made so far. For background Fenbury is going to be a small village on the South Coast of England. If you can imagine somewhere around the Devon, Somerset and Dorset coast where the geography can be surprisingly rocky along the coastline. I love water so there had to be a river. The families and some buildings are already made. The decision not to use CC or mods is personal, mainly because I lack the skills to sort it if anything goes wrong. Like most small villages it will have a manor house, pub, green and almshouses. It will also have an abandoned railway (thanks Dr Beeching) and castle ruins.
This will form the back of the world and I thought it a good place to put the farm. I think the terrain shaping needs more work but the work done so far is to help me plan the layout.
This is a potential site for a waterfall.
I am going to put the castle ruins here. Again the terrain shaping needs a lot of work. In Norman times they would have looked for the highest point to build because they had a real problem with Viking raiders.
The bridge is in as a marker, it needs considerable work but I have found adding bridges at a later stage when the roads are already down causes me real problems.
