    Awesome!! I love how vibrant the colors are.

    Now when looking at the maps that we have they look incomplete compared to the new ones.
    Everything I post is an opinion here and I think every post of others is as well.

    Kind of wish they kept it pale (I like pale tints), but it does look prettier.

    I wonder why they didn't catch this opportunity to intergrate Magnolia Promenade into Willow Creek. They also could have shown the GTW lots on the maps. The new maps are quite pretty (like naive paintings), but still so tiny!

    This map reminds me of sims 2 maps. I love that they are colored! Thanks for sharing the maps.

    Am I the only one who liked it the way it was? I liked the concept of the areas only becoming colored when hovering over them.

    I wasn't a big fan of the original. I mean, it didn't bother me much, but I still thought work could've been done.
    So I'm very impressed by this change! I think it looks a lot better than it did before. There's more color and detail; it's not as plain, and it's still very Sims 4-like.

    They look really nice in colour, I'm glad they did this for those who thought the maps were a little too bland. Such an improvement!

    Finally a map


    I can start plotting new houses!

    It's my desktop background now ;)

    3 cannot be moved or changed. The ruins, the bluffs and the estate.

    @fullspiral I see 2 that cannot be moved where is the 3rd one. Is the estate the one across from the hedge maze because it is a commercial lot and we can change it, I think, if not why? it has a icon over it. Let me know where these are located

    That's it? They've just added a bit of colour. They're still basically the same game maps just not white. I cannot imagine they spent much time on this.They literally look like maps from a free-to-play Ipad game. How can anyone be excited about this? It's functionally exactly the same and I think the colour makes it look even less AAA game and more cheap.

    @blueturtleotter what did you expect for them to change all the lots or something. why would it not be the same game map..
    I not sure what you wanted or how you wanted it to function differently. I think it looks nice, the colors are nice and it shows now where all the water is. I like it. It is only a map so you can click where you want to go.

    Crin said it may be possible to check the estate and see if the house is part of what can be altered. If so, it might be able to be saved to the lot bin and then placed as residential somewhere else. She didn't get that far to check it out during her time in Germany. But to keep it where it is as residential is not going to happen.

    That's pretty sad.... I Rule my plum!! :s

    The estate is the one on top of the hedge maze, yes. It is a new lot type and cannot be changed.

    Oasis Springs is my favorite, i'm a bit disapointed that they removed some details like the train, boats and the bridge from WC's map and the dinossaur from OS. But i'm glad that they finally added some colors to the maps, i'm sure i can get used to it, i just think, i could have done this better... Also Windenburg maps has a lot of detail compared to the others. :|

    No, I feel the same way too. But maybe the new map will highlight a bit more as well on hover? We won't know till we get it. :)

    I think my only fav thing about the new map is how they did the splooshy thing with the water waves. :D Looks nicer than the scribble-y lines on the old one.

    i totally agree. with all the things that need work in this game they waste time on coloring a map. this really makes me laugh lol

    Have you seen some of the rest of what's coming in this patch? The map recolor is tiny compared. Plus Simmers who are playing Sims 4 have been asking for a map recolor; not everything that's needed or wanted by Simmers is big.

    yes i have seen what people are saying are in the patch, but i still think that map color was something that could have waited until they got a lot of the bugs worked out

    That's different groups of people you're talking about there. Not much point in one group twiddling their thumbs while another does their thing.

    of course they do but still i think more resources should have been put towards making the game play less shallow (if thats even possible lol) and that was my point. but feel free to troll my posts, it doesnt bother me in the least :)
