Following the Springfield Guide

    I took some artistic freedoms here and there where spacing would've been too uneven (e.g. Rommelwood) or to incorporate non-Springfield or TSTO-original items. The guide is a great outline though and I find it a lot more fun to work with self-imposed restrictions like that forcing creative and space-efficient design.

    Progress slowed massively because of the item limit right now, so here's a WIP screenshot of my attempt to bring Springfield to live as mapped out in the Guide:

  • Where is the specific location in town square for the sundial? We know it’s in front of town hall. I’m trying to figure out where it is from the Jebidiah statue. Is it in front or behind it? I recently watched the scene but it didn’t give a good location.

    Afaik the episode does not have the statue on the same side as the town hall. The sundial is literally right in front of the town hall steps, with the statue nowhere to be seen. This is where I plan on placing it:

  • @JNR13 Great designs. Thanks for posting and I look forward to more posts from you.

    @rockyb2006 I also placed the sundial in front of the Town Hall on the same side of the street.
  • @Djudge999 yep, that’s where I ended up placing it.

    I discovered a few things missing:
    • Santa's Christmas Village
    • Magic Palace
    • Monorail Station
    • Drive In Theater
    • Wildlife Sanctuary

    I don't know if these have already been discussed earlier and already been decided against, so disregard it if that's the case.

    I've been out of the game a little while but getting back into it and following the guide. And I always wanted the overpass/freeway so built it using monorail stands, and concrete walls. Big buildings block the gaps in the road. This is a small sample.

  • @JNR13 good find on the Magic Palace. Missing that one for awhile.

    What to do now with KL/I&S in Springfield? A major remodel is coming. Any thoughts out there?

    Ah thank you! I knew I'd seen it somewhere :smile:
  • So... much... room... for... activities....
  • Might take awhile to open up all of that land, but I may perform a redesign after @EllieGuseman puts up the latest grid on the SF map.

    I'm thinking of putting KL/I&S in the Heights area, but then I'm going to have to move my Around the World and Futuristic sections. Plus, I think I'm going to stretch out my main town.
    Whatever I do is going to be major and I don't want to mess it up at the start.
