    Hi guys, here is an overview picture of Las Palomas. Those who are willing to help can build new lots in any of the emply ones you can see below:
    laspalomas_zps8a2dbf48.png

    I'll try to finish the market tomorrow, but due to my other projects I'll only do stuff in CAW from now on. So I'll place any new lots you build and expand the world to add the new areas. Tomorrow I'll also try to make a list of all the community lots we've done and the ones we need for the city and the yet unexisting parts :wink:

    Hope to hear from you!

    That dark terrain was a really good choice Nilxis :)

    I'll try and redownload this world and then get a few buildings done.

    LAS PALOMAS COMMUNITY LOTS & RABBITHOLES LIST

    This is a list of all the community lots and rabitholes from the EP's we are using. (Are we using Seasons?) This list will help us to organize the world's lots and decide which ones we need to build, which ones we won't include, etc.

    Green - finished lots.
    Orange - planned lots, once we have an assigned empty lot in CAW for it. Unfinished lots too.
    Red - discarted lot types.
    Blue - ideas for lots, their location...

    I will update the list and the map as we build new things and discuss about lots :)

    The building without a number next to the church is empty. I think it could work as a Theatre, so that area would be like the cultural one since there is an Art Gallery and a Library around there. Also I've added some suggestions in blue, I think the Coyoacan Area needs some community lots to fill the empty ones with the Roman numbers. What do you think about all this? :D

    What an awesome list!

    I definitely agree that's a good place for the bistro.

    As for the supermarket, I think the one from starlight shores would be best, right? I think it'd be good to have it in a more modern/urban area. Just my opinion though.


    And for the pyramid, I can definitely see it belonging on the island. The reason I chose that mountain peak was both for its prominence as well as the position of the sun. I agree with you on the island.

    The school would look pretty cool in the market district, next to the casa Azul.

    I think the theater should go on lot XX and then Juncedas apartments can go next to it.



    Would it be possible to make a festival lot with a graveyard on top of it . (Dia de Los Muertos )

    I've updated the list with your ideas :)

    I've just noticed that Junceda's apartments and the last house you made aren't on the picture. I took an old one. Also the numbers 5 and 7 are wrongly placed.

    I'm finishing the Bazaar now, I'll show you some pics later :D

    These are some pictures of the unfinished part of the Bazaar (now finished). I've created a little market on the ground floor with decorative stalls and 2 new cash registers: relics and "almacén" (warehouse in English?). On the upper floor I've placed a skating ring and some seats. Also I've added two trees in the central square and a Mexican recolored flag :D

    The Mexican flag is a nice touch. Great work so far, Nilxis!

    Thank you Nilxis!

    I'm sorry but I tried downloading that one, but when I open the .world file, I just get a dark blue screen. Maybe could I just have a playable version that's been exported from the launcher?
