Elmdale, New Sims 3 World: Download

Hello again,
Elmdale is finally ready for download!
It is the first world I've finished, and my main gaming world. I've been looking for a medium non-island, non-tropical world that has all types of areas and doesn't require all EPs for a very long time, but didn't manage to find one (well, all but the base game only worlds require at least WA), so, I decided to make one myself. Elmdale is created on a medium-sized map, with distant terrain from Twinbrook, or, to be exact, 3 of them rotated and placed in different positions to surround the town from all sides.
It is a sims 3 world located in a valley of a small river flowing into the sea. The river divides the town into two parts: urban and rural. The urban part includes old town, industrial area, modern district, modern suburb and old suburb. The more rural part across the river has many fields, places for small farms and traditional houses. The town also has a beach area and a pier for houseboats. Many lots on the coast are placed partially in the water, and there are several lots that can function as ports.
The town has a railway that looks like functional (though it is just a deco, of course), many parking places and billboards to make it look more real and alive. The two tiny lots without addresses near the bus stops were made to place busses on them.
I used ini. files from China (WA) to make custom weather for the world, but you don’t need WA for the world to function.
Elmdale is set in temperate climate and is suitable for every season.

Technical info:
Map size: medium
World type: empty
Number of lots: 146 (including two small deco lots)
File size: 34,5 Mb
CC and Store content: present
Game version: 1.55

EPs Requirements:
-   Ambitions
-   Late Night
-   Pets
-   Showtime
-   University life
-   Seasons
-   Island Paradise
(when making this world, I had SP on my computer: HELS, FL, and TLS, but I think the world will work fine without them, nothing from theses SPs was used)
Required CC:
(The world will look ugly and unnatural without these)
-          Juniper bushes from Monte Vista
-          Street lights from Monte Vist
-          Bridges from Riverview (Download here (registration required) if they don't show up in your game)
-          Streetlights from Aurora Skies

Optional CC:
(Important for aesthetics, but not vital, though strongly recommended)
-          Bus shelter and bus bench from ATS 3 (Download)
-          Train from TJStreak (Download)
-          Scarecrow from Riverview (Download here (registration required) if it doesn't show up in your game)

    2. They worked fine for me. Make sure you deactivate any Ad Blockers, if you have them. That might help.

  2. PS-I could not find the scarecrow, with the link you provided to ats, and I assume you meant us to download the red train? Thought you should know: I'm not complaining.

    1. Thank you for the feedback. Silly me! Scarecrow is not from ATS3, you need Riverview for it, the same as for bridge pieces. I removed the link to avoid confusion. And, yes, you need to download the red train. For some reason, even if you click on the link for the green one, you still get the red one, so, no chice here.

  3. Gorgeous !! <3

    Do you have a plan of where you'll pass the community/ residential lots? Like this http://martinessimblr.tumblr.com/cottonwoodhillsmap.. just so i can get a general placement..

    Also, what are the size of lots?

    Sorry for so many questions..

    1. Ok, I see that some players have this issue. To get Riverview objects show, please, download them from MTS (they're in package format, so, put into your Mods folder).
      The link: http://modthesims.info/t/showpost.php?p=3390099&postcount=2
      I updated the post with the link to them; registration is required to download from that site.
      I hope it helped.

    1. See my reply to the post above for the solution with the bridges. As for the map edge: yes, there could've been a better blend, but the edges are painted camera unroutable anyway, so, your sims won't go there,and they are not visible unless you move the camera up and close to the edges.
