After a year long hiatus from sims 3, I recently began playing around CAW and decided to create a Tokyo inspired world for my needs. This world has a few sections that are inspired by various cities/towns around Japan.
-The central main section I hope gives the feel of downtown Tokyo.
-Westside has a small section that is a blend of Kyoto and the Meguro river area.
- to the south is a port that is inspired by Yokohama,
- to the East is a small mountain village section that was inspired by Yamanose. (If you ever played Shenmue, it is the village that Ryo Hazuki lives)
I am about 70 to 80%ish? Done...I think...
Where I can, I try to use real world buildings and houses for inspiration. I have also used rabithole rugs so for photoshoots or gameplay so hopefully most non-shell buildings will be fully furnished.
Anyway here's some pics of what it looks like so far:
