Silur: Picture 21 is one of my personal favourites because I utilise a strong MMP approach to build areas.

praiodan: Thanks! That mix of rural and greenfield industries is something I see quite often in England.

Part 2 of the Finale - Grasmere East

The tour starts with Grasmere East. This is the first part of Grasmere that I completed and it all started with that grey concrete road...

Grasmere East.

For the grey road I used the road texture lots found in Bipin's Industrial Essentials.

kingofsimcity's Anyone For Tennis park facility- a very cool sports addition! Link: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/31324-aot-tennis-parks-beta-green-green-tennis-greens/.


12.


And to the top-right is one of the relots from Fantozzi's The Big Paeng Theory, this is something I highly recommend for park fillers in both urban and rural settings.


13.


One big-ass mosaic!


14.


15.


These R$ diagonal houses are part of jmyers2043's housing set- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2822, while the diagonal fillers lining the road are from SFBT's diagonal fillers- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1197.

To the right are some of T Wreck's 5x5 housing relots- http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/24639-stratton-apartments-multi-building-lots/.


17.


For the fields I use MMPs from Chrisadams3997's RRP Pasture Flora (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1886) and the various grass and flower MMPs from girafe.


18.


And at the top is a park made from FrankU's Dutch Parks set- http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/30548-franku-dutch-parks/.

Lovely pictures with truely inspiring arrangements! I really like the combination of concrete and asphalt roads and how meticulously you're providing your sims parking. Also how you arranged jbsimio's appartment buildings surrounded with forrest, in this setting I could also easily imagine them as some kind of lodge hostel.  &apls

Bipin: Thank you!

Silur: If that were to happen then I would have to call a doctor.

praiodan: Thanks! As for the apartments, well it was T Wrecks who relotted them. I find them to be excellent residential fillers which take up plenty of space: 5x5.

Simmer2:thumbsup:

c.p.: Thanks! Your buildings made most of Grasmere possible!

Part 3 of the Finale: Grasmere Industrial Estate

For the next part we come to my favourite thing with SC4: industry!

{---}

1.


In particular this part of Grasmere is in the southeast.


2.


With any industrial area railways are always important.


3.


This is one of SFBT's industrial BATs- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2925.


4.


By adding T Wrecks IM IRM fillers (the car park pieces) and placing PEGPROD's tree fillers on the outside it gives this factory a more impressive footprint.


5.


6.


To the top of the picture is one of my standard MMP combinations: Chrisadams3997's green rye grass mixed with girafe's feather grass. The feather grass is placed first then the green rye grass is placed second. This gives the appearance of a fallow field which has been allowed to grow for some time.


7.


The 2x1 houses are from jen_p's BATs- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1346, http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1341 and http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1328. VERY useful urban fillers!


8.


9.


10.


This huge factory is one of SimHoTToDDy's most mightiest industrial creations: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/25332-bsp-fisher-body-plant-21-maxis-night/.


11.


12.


The Chelsea Mills Grain Elevator, a great industrial BAT and perfect for adding onto a railway! This works in either urban or rural settings. Found here: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1367.


13.


14.


A grimy but effective industrial building (and disposes garbage too!)- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1621. Citynut sure knows how to make great industrial BATs!


15.


16.


17.


Another amazing Simmer2 relot of a classic industrial BAT: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3384.


18.


19.


20.


21.


Another yuge mosaic.


22.


23.


Making use of Simmer2's rail sidings- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3332.


24.

This Tuesday doubles down on the ruralness- a brief tour around Skeeby, a small village, and the surrounding fields.

Wow, it seems that I have missed few excellent updates... you're doing a great work, Vizoria! You just astonish us with your ability to create a huge areas - a big ones that are really hard to fully grasp with mind - but with keeping each square metre in the highest possible degree of detailing an quality. That's what makes your every post and thus this entire thread an example of a truly craftsman-like masterpiece.

Now, commenting some details... we can really see thatthe industry is your favourite point, especially the older facilities. I really like the pseudo w2ws made of old warehouses along the concrete road (which is also a great idea and fits there perfectly), that creates a view with an interesting feeling that I have never seen yet in sc.

What is more, I'm amazed how much time you must have spend over thoee grass fileds ful of double type mmps! Also thanks for all the links you provide for us! :thumbsup:

I complimented you on your industrial sites before, but you just leave me no other choice but to do so again.  ::) ;D You neatly pieced it all together and I love the way all the industry has its own rail conncetion, the single track ending next to that factory in picture 16 is a fantastic detail.

Great work Vizoria. BATers/lotters and non-BATers/non-litters alike can all learn something from your brilliant MD - layout, spacing, variety and use of lots and MMPs is nearly always perfect. I've tried to take on board what I learn from your MD and use it in my own region. Now just waiting for the day it starts to show through!

Replies:

Silur: Which bright green, red and white colours? Anyway, thanks for your comment.

kbieniu7: Thanks for this comment. Yes I have an obsession with connecting areas together and the MMPs allow me to be repetitive and yet create both random and artistic scenes. Finally doing this can take some time- there are more time-efficient MMP combinations which I often use to save time.

Simmer2:thumbsup:

praiodan: Industry and railways will nearly always go together in this MD, while with all the trees and fillers I try to give the appearance of hiding parts of the railways and the road connections to the factories.

siemanthepieman: Thanks for that! Good luck with your MD, you may want to post it as people will give out advice and point out things.

Part 4 of the finale: Skeeby

Skeeby is a village just north of Grasmere, it is small and surrounded by fields. If you like MMP fields then this is the entry for you!

{---}

1.


The village of Skeeby.


2.


The fields southwest of Skeeby.


3.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


9.


The longest mosaic for this entry.


10.


The south of Skeeby.


11.


These 7x7 low density residential buildings are part of c.p.'s Victorian Homes- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3498.


12.


13.



14.


Mixing SPAM roads with FrankU's Dutch fields: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/26080-simpeg-agricultural-mod-spam/ and http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3068.


15.


16.


17.


18.


My MMP corn field.


19.


I mixed grass from Chrisadams3997's pasture flora MMPs with that of girafe's narcissus MMPs- in that order.


20.


These particular fields (vanilla Maxis fields) can be plopped when downloading this BSC LEX farm set- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=936. Either that or its in one of the dependencies to make this farm set work.


21.


22.


Moving southwest from Skeeby.


23.


24.


This MMP field was created by first laying down clover from Chrisadams3997's pasture flora MMPs and then adding girafe's narcissus MMPs.


25.


26.


And this field was created by first using the grass from Chrisadams3997's pasture flora MMPs and then adding brown dirt found in ionionion's OMCo Filling Gravel- http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/25709-omco-filling-gravel/.


27.


28.


29.


And that wraps up the tour of Skeeby!

{---}

This Friday the tour moves to the very centre of Grasmere and that is a big entry.

Again, fantastic work! I never was capable of piecing together such beautiful rural landscapes, always was more of the urban density playing type. So be sure of my envy for that!  $%Grinno$%
Especially pics 2 and 3 are fabulous. They could easily be mistaken for Google Earth shots.  &apls
