My new restaurant district (finished?)

That's pretty fancy, I like it. Since suggestions are encouraged, I would change the angle statues to something else. The color of them looks odd next to the cobble stone walls. Maybe a couple of ice sculptures or the statue of Smithers holding Burns' head. Just a suggestion.

    I like it :) Did something similar.
    What bothers me a lot when designing is how some buildings clearly are made for placement on grass and some on concrete. Making it impossible to blend some buildings in a good way. Which makes you compromise in designing.

    Here's mine:

    Good layout jsykay. My suggestion - limit the amount of pavement. Make the pavement a path and increase grass area around fountain. Add benches/chairs next to fountain so that people can relax there after a meal and before the show. More shrubbery too!

    Great suggestion! I knew I bought four of the Burns statues for a reason. :D

    Also added a couple more patio chairs, here's updated version:

    I tried that but I'm no good at shrubbery/gardening haha :lol: I'm gonna have another go at it now, part of me thinks that there's too much pavement too, even before I posted the original pic, thanks heaps :D

    @Skyrim thanks buddy! You're too kind :D Benches coming right up! :)

    Wow, I used to think I had a pretty good town before coming to these forums lol, massive punch to the self esteem lol. Look great!! - I wanna give something like this a go, but my restaurants are spread all over town and I can't stomach the thought of tearing it all down lol

    I think it looks great. More detail would enhance the look (I can only see your 1st pic and half of the updated one; my internet is that bad :()

    The fountain looks great. Maybe try adding the golden statue at each corner? I would also add more tables and chairs.

    I have done something similar, just without any walls covering it. (I do realise the layout of each is identical ;))

    Woah Sahl that's brilliant. The layout works dude, if it ain't broke don't fix it hey? Oh what I would do if I had all of the land :(

    Okay, so here it is after a little bit of tweaking, thanks so much for all of your suggestions guys :)

    Thoughts now?

    I think it looks great. I would try to soften the pavement line with shrubs as it meets the outdoor stage line.

    Better? :)

    PS That looks fantastic MelDesigner. Really, really good stuff. I love how you've given each restaurant it's own personality! When can we be friends? happydance_zps6e52a868.gifhappydance_zps6e52a868.gif
