This will be my first world, although I have played a lot with CAW and have a lot of partially finished projects, but I plan on finishing this one.
This world has 181 lots with two empty legacy-sized (60x60) lots. The city has many distinct areas, namely the downtown core, cultural area, entertainment area, luxury condo area, old downtown, mansion/luxury housing (hills at the base of the mountains), industrial area, low-income housing, run-down neighbourhood, Chinatown, eco area, artist area, slum (abandonned construction site), and rural farming area (base of the mountains as well). There is a large nature reserve by the downtown, a large airport, a seaport, and a concrete canal like the LA river dividing the rich and poor areas.
I will also be modifying the ini files to make this a city world having an atmosphere very much like Bridgeport, along with the grey water. I am also using custom terrain paints and a couple of mods to create the world, but they will be with the world itself and not affect anything to anyone who downloads this(really).I will also populate it and upload the save file.It requires all EPs and SPs, up to University Life (excluding Master Suite Stuff and Katy Perry's Sweet Treats), as well as free store content. There will be no CC.
For the progress of this world, I will not continuously be working on it, and mixed with my university projects and such, I may go a long time before posting any updates, but this project will not be abandonned.
Here is a a sneak peak at the progress so far:
Update: More recent map of the world.
Here are some of the more finished buildings so far...
Alpha City Civic Citadel (City Hall)
Like most of the rabbit holes in this world, I built a building around it, while leaving part of it exposed to make it easier to select.
Alpha City Biodome (Big Park)
This dome allows Sims to visit an alien world. I plan to add elevated walkways and such inside.
Llama Energy Service Station (No Visitors Allowed)
One of the purely decorative lots in the city, but with a subway station to be at least somewhat useful. Also one of the few currently completed buildings.
Alpha City Police Headquarters (Police Station)
Again, rabbithole in a building, but partly visible. Also completed.
BioCorp Medical Institute (Hospital)
Fitting the cyberpunk theme, the hospital is owned by a corporation.
Starter studio apartment in the run-down part of the city.
The Hive (Dance Club)
The only club that is not in the downtown core, the honeycomb theme will be used inside as well. Kudos to those who know from where I took the name and design from.
Another starter, on the edge of the industrial region. As can be seen, right beside the movie studios.
Alpha City Fire Department (Fire Station)
Yomoshoto Motors Casino (Fusion Lounge)
The casino and hotel are all "hidden" and only to add something around the lounge, which is in the penthouse.
Stadium Island Beach (Beach)
On the island with the stadium, in the entertianment area. The biggest beach.
Habitation Alpha City
Inspired by Le Corbusier's Habitation à Marseilles. In the middle of the luxury condo region.
Alpha City School Field (Small Park)
Also quite self-explanatory. The lot with the school is on one side.
McCreary Irish Pub (Local Watering Hole)
A traditional styled pub with a small band stage.
In the old downtown area, designed to look under renovation. Also designed to be perfect for an investigator.
Landgraab Oceanview Lounge (Exclusive Lounge)
Yes, the Landgraabs will also be in this city. On top of the tower is the lounge, with a view of the ocean.
The core of the downtown region, with the actual square as a Big Park. The building on the left is currently the Vorn Industries Restaurant, set as a hangout, but will probably contain a venue for Showtime. On the top left is Slimline Fitness, the gym. On the top right is X1 Telecom Centre, set as a market and with a mall at the bottom. The glowing bars are the Wi-Fi Monument, a small park to commemorate Wi-Fi.
Alpha City Tower (Small Park)
The tallest building, used as the landmark for the area.
Alpha City Nature Reserve (Horse Ranch)
Essentially the welcome centre for the reserve, far from being finished, but the shape of the building is complete, as well as it's overall look.
Fresh & Frozen Express Grocer (Grocery Store)
In the eco district, also has a subway station for the area.
