I'm just starting my first complete redesign since I began playing at Christmas. So if anyone is my neighnor, sorry for the mess! :). At maybe half hour a day it's gonna be a long process.


How long do you usually spend on a redesign?

I think Skyrim is going for the longest redesign in history at the moment been over a month now i think :lol:

I do sections at a time so no real idea how long it takes me tbh

    Most of my town is done, but I've got buildings just sitting in a massive open space, that I can't decide how to decorate. (Sir putt alots, frinks lab, dog track and a few other random houses etc) been like that for a while, everytime I go to decorate them, I draw a blank and get back out of it lol

    think mine was about a month, mainly working on it at weekends.
    If you want to estimate it i would go on 2 buildings a day. you'll have days when you do more, but equally days when you really cba

    I just bought the remaining land (25 or so plots) and its taking me FOREVER to fill it all in, furthermore I've torn down a few things to redo them. Frustrating as all hell. I'm gonna be über satisfied when it's done though.

    The greater good!

    The first thing to do is to place all the buildings the way you like it and after you put decorations :D

    Maybe but doing it in my head for me is easier. I make a plan with all the buildings in my head and then i go to my town and do it. It take me less then an hour to make my plan in my head. :)

    Hahahaaa love it! That'd be up my alley if I took the time. Shame work takes sooo much. And what's not ripe in the garden is getting pulled out Nd retilled now. And of course gotta have some time every day for my girls :)

    But poor SVT has one task available at the moment. Everything else is in inventory. Lol

    I used to always do it in my head as well but then i would end up with a plan go into my springfield create what i had in my head and then spend 2 hours goin oh no that doesnt look right, maybe try it like this, oh no that's horrible and then end up with a complete mess.

    So what i am doing now is i have my spreadsheet and slowly creating my springfield in sections. So i do one section in spreadsheet then put that section in my town. And if looks right great and if not back to the spreadsheet.

    Redesigning takes a lot of patience. I did it as I added land go to save time, then when I was done buying all the land, I did a redesign by sections. Never timed it, though I did spend a couple of hours at a time, depending on what I was changing. I do know that a lot of time would be saved if tapping items was more accurate. I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but sometimes the inaccuracy is maddening. I can't tell you how many times I have to tap some items before I can actually move the item I'm after!

    Too long. I was nearly finished and just had some decorating to do, then I got a better idea and starting ripping it apart. So back to the drawing board.

    Maybe I'm good at it because i redesign 5 towns. I know every building and every decorations there is. It's in my head. But maybe it's just good for me...
