Hi everyone, as some of you know I recently created a series of 3 lots to make a Christmas train for the BnS Challenge #221. A few folks and I liked the idea of adding additional lots to expand the train. Then I had an idea... how about the community collaborating to create the Orient Express
(‘murder mystery’ train)? With the support from many talented simmers, this project is now a wonderful reality. Inspired by actual photos, participants have created and decorated cars for this train, as well as others. The Alpine train is fictional so designers had more creative freedom. See the posts below for details and links to all the creations.Accompanying world build
I also hoped to have a special world to showcase the trains. Due to the interest received, and with the CAW talent of Jessabeans, this is also underway. We’re creating a world built around the journey of the OE from London - Paris - Venice. Each destination has a station to showcase the train cars designed by the community. Once released, simmers can have their sims 'travel' around the world by moving the playable lot to different train stations as desired. Each destination will also include a mix of residential and community lots reflecting popular landmarks and architecture for that city. This could be quite fun for story-tellers as well.Edit! Sign-up for creating or decorating world lots open! Lurkers... Hope you are enjoying the great builds completed so far. See links in the next two posts below. Feel free to download or rec on the Exchange and / or drop us a note here in the thread 😀If you would like to design the interior of one or more of the train cars that would be excellent.
(Edit! Train spots full) You can also participate by building lots in the world. Perhaps you're not keen on building lots but like decorating houses... we have a role for you too! Just sign-up by posting in this thread letting us know what you would like to claim. See the list of available lots and design notes below. Hoping you join us Creators on board so far@ciane
