Provo : We're back! 7/4/14
« on: December 16, 2012, 02:31:04 PM »
Welcome to Riverton!
About Riverton
 
Riverton is a fictional city located in the West/Northwestern part of simnation. The place that it is located is on an unusually flat area, but around it is the massive Grand Mountains.
The wide Markham River runs through the region, bringing fertile land next to it, which is a magnificent thing compared to the rocky soil around the mountains. I, for some reason love to hand-craft my regions, so this may not be as good looking as the ones on the LEX and STEX.

About this MD

I have to admit, I am not a very good storyteller, so I will not do any stories like the Winding River Project does. Don't worry though, my main focus on this MD is showing off some of my "talent " in city building, so I hope you enjoy!


So here's my first pic, a shot of Riverton's "downtown".

I'll start this off with a shot on what's to come later.
Thanks for supporting Riverton! :thumbsup:

Nice little town, I'm wondering what's being constructed.

Also, you might want to turn the shadows on while taking pictures, looks better imho. Good luck with your MD!  :thumbsup:

Good to see you doing this. I concur with Vortext: turn on shadows, and turn off the grid. Now keep it up ;)


Cheers

NOTE: This is not an update, just an announcement.

So I was looking through the STEX for some apparent reason and came upon THIS beauty. (you might like it mrbisonm, it would probably fit good in the winding river.) It looks very nice, though I was planning to make the second update today, I had to bulldoze all of my trees, so that took me awhile. The next update will be postponed until i'm hoping tomorrow. I hope you all have a very nice day. :thumbsup:

Thanks For Supporting Riverton! :thumbsup:

We Need A Church!

                                                                         
Almost everywhere, there is a church where citizens are free to practice their religion. But there is no church built in Riverton! The citizens have asked for it, so Benson Tonham got a loan from the bank of Simnation and found this empty lot to build the church that the citizens need.

At the intersection of Kansas Avenue and Worth Street, there is an empty lot that serves as a little parking lot and sometimes a hangout place.


A few weeks later, construction begins.


In about a week, the main construction crews come in.


Finally, the church is done and ready for the Sims to use.

Thanks for the tip, I Do scorn myself for not being fully prepared for this. Just first time jitters I think. I capture updates A week earlier, so you still won't see shadows on this one. You DEFIANTLY will see them in the next update. ;)

Markham River is not exactly "Close" to Riverton, maybe a quarter of a mile away. Like I said, I handcraft my regions, so you won't really be seeing that until later. Thanks for visiting! :thumbsup:

Re: Riverton Update 2: Highway 103
« Reply #11 on: December 20, 2012, 05:42:23 PM »
Highway 103 Part 1:

Highway 103 is fairly important route in the Riverton Area. It starts at downtown Riverton and goes all the way to Kingston down south. First, we start off at downtown Riverton, the start and end of this highway.
In half a mile, we reach the small village of Jake's point. All you can really do there is eat at the small Mexican restaurant there. Their tacos taste pretty good.
Keep on driving for another mile and you will reach Notts Creek. There is plenty of fish here, so you will always catch something. There is a small beach beach there where you can go snail hunting or just relax.
You won't have to travel far from there to reach Notts, where you can shop for their famous snail soup. It's easier to eat if you close your eyes.
Turn Right at the intersection at Notts and you will reach Interstate 2, where we will be heading in part 2!

Yikes! Glad I ate before reading this.

A bit of building repetition you still have to deal with. Nice interchange ;)

You don't like the taste of Snails? :D I'll work on it.

Sorry guys, but it seems like Riverton has gotten Prop pox, so i'll have to develop a new city in it's place. You won't be seeing any pics of Riverton for a awhile, so Kingston will be what you guys are going to see for the next couple of updates. I'm so mad about prop pox. :bomb:

Part 2 will come later today.

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and hope that you'll have a happy new year! :thumbsup:

(For Noah: Sorry, but Hugo isn't first in line. Blitzen got sick from the cold, which I have right now and HATING IT. So that means that Hugo took the place for him. Good enough, right?)

Heh!  Great card!

The prop pox impacting your work is a real bummer.  Hopefully it will be just one of those random things and never hit you again.  Good luck!

You're making me hungry!  Where I'm at, every town of any size has at least one Mexican restaurant, and normally more.  It's really too bad about the prop pox, though.  I hope you're able to build a new city that will be even better, although it will be hard since Riverton was very good.

The Christmas card looks good, Sunv123!  :thumbsup:

Oh no, prop pox :thumbsdown:
I never get it but I regularly make backups because I'm afraid of it.

Like the interchange on the previous update :thumbsup:
