During October 2018 I started to attempt the creation of an Asian inspired city world which will probably take many more months if not years
This project came into existence when @Emily4331
was searching for a Hong Kong look-alike world and had trouble finding one that was suitable ... for Emily4331 I believe the need for bright light city living has probably been met by @Federico
's Icolopolis an absolutely awesome looking metropolis
For me it was the beginning of another journey into the joy and despair of wrestling with CAW.
All builds in this world are either modified EA community lots or my own designs. I do not use CC even though there are amazing creations out there that would make a city look so much better ... but I must admit there is a fair amount of MOO-ing going on and quite a bit of CFE used on the lots.
My friend and fellow simmer/world-builder @LMC6255
has been encouraging me to start my own thread and I have finally succumbed to her wish to see more and larger pictures of this work in progress ... so without further ado here are some screenshots of Da Chengshi's humble beginnings:
Just a twinkle in the city planner's eye many moons ago:
The latest screenshot:
And 'everything' in between:
View from Government Island
Rainy autumn day
From dusk ...
... till dawn
A green oasis on top of 'Xing Yun' Tower
Winter in the Big City
View from the industrial district
Deserted streets in winter
Bright lights at night
I have chosen Chinese names for buildings with the help of Google Translate ... as my ability to speak this lovely language is none existent I'm afraid.
I'll apologize already ahead of time for any misunderstandings or offence that may cause and I very much hope that at least the name 'Da Chengshi' is the correct translation for 'Big City'.
Thank you for taking a look and making it this far down the page.
