Real World Designs in Your TSTO Towns

I like to create workable and fun designs that would actually work in the real world.

For example in my town I have....
  • The answer to how the Plow King keeps in business in the summer months (look behind the Nuke Power Plant I will eventually post below)
  • A fully workable Prison area with secure gate system, inmate yard areas, etc... (I actually used to be a corrections office in my past professional life)
  • A realistic way to include dinosaurs and Egyptian pyramids (look at my Natural History Museum design I will eventually post below)
  • I like to re-purpose items so it makes a unique new structure or design (i.e. look at my High School Gym which is really the ice skating rink I will eventually post, or extended terminals in my airport, etc...)
  • I have a full Religious District that covers Christians to Jews to Pagans to Pastry Worshipers
  • I also like the little real world details, like one of my Krusty Burgers has a working drive through, and my Grade school has a pick up kids driving area, a track and football field for the high school, a realistic dump / recycling area, etc...
  • I have a fun center area that even includes a working hedge maze
  • A realistic Airport with extended runways, passenger drop off area, and a helipad, etc...

I will share all the examples above plus more in this thread. Please feel free to share some of your most awesome designs with real world inspiration.

===================================================

Here is my airport with extended runways, a heliport, passenger drop off area, etc......

===================================================
Here is my church district. It covers everything from Christians, to Jews, to Pagans, to Hindus, to Pastry Worship......

===================================================
Want to know how the Plow King keeps in business in the summer months?

===================================================
How can you make dinosaurs and ancient Egypt work into your town in a real world natural way? Just create a Natural History Museum without outside displays.....

===================================================
A fully workable Prison area with secure gate system, inmate yard areas, etc...

==================================================
Full Army Training Obstacle Course

==================================================
Elementary & High Schools. This a good example reusing a building for a different purpose. I used the skating rink as the High School gym. It also has a football field with a dirt track around it.

=================================================
DMV with full onsite driving test course......

Just a heads up that I updated this post with several new examples......@daved7637397 @fastshadow2 @ewestbury90 @1pillform @jmlgg @mirko_283 @KrustyBrand

    thanks @hobbesisreal it takes up some serious real estate though but i will get to 18 holes eventually, one tolken at a time :D i traded airport space to make more room for the coarse by storing a bunch of the airport items

    Same here. I only got 1, and it looks pretty stupid sitting there by itself

    check it out next (if visit :D ) it’s new land along the water, been trying to use one tolken per event there and now have to wait for coarses to come back to get more of those to finish
    i got one initially and put it behind a mansion and liked it so much i got a few more for same idea but soon every mansion had one and that looked stupid then thought i could do a coarse. most recently added the newest crowds like they are moving to the next hole

    Nice! I usually enjoy detailed realistic towns the most, since the show SF itself is one

    Speaking of world designs. I'd like to actually create some, which will probably be 3d since some are on hills. But "star designs" I've always wanted to make but in this game it makes it incredibly difficult because we're so limited on how to place stuff.

    a1-star-castle-hotel-170513-de__large.jpg?
    Star-Shaped-Forts.jpg

    Or Road shapes that look like this would be nice to use. We can't even create a pattern like that either because they don't give us "round structures of any kind. We get a lot of "box" pattern items, like buildings or fences etc but never anything that's "round" If EA could give us Rounded fences or rounded buildings we could create a lot of designs. Also Triangle fences would be nice too. Or at least be able to rotate the fences in another direction.....Because creating circles or triangles seems impossible.
    Sidewalks like this would be great to have too

    ~Always be Designing~
    Don't increase the Item Limit? Then I don't play. Period.

  • Doesnt it. Probably doesnt get a lot of action either. Who wants to play 1 hole 18 times?

  • Updated original post with several more of examples from my town.

    @hobbesisreal Your town is amazing! I did something similar to your prison area by using the underground building to connect the juvenile corrections to the main prison. I figured it would make family visitation day more convenient for Snake and Jeremy. :D Was that what you were trying to do also? The only difference is I used Burns State Prison instead of Springfield Prison. I've been trying to swap them out but haven't found a good way to do it yet.
