My Springfield Re-design

Great stuff all over! :thumbup: Attention to detail (and the time it takes) has paid off nicely!

Though now I feel guilty and should do some work back in my town...

    danbyization, you have several great designs on several properties. I really like your park, the restarants with outdoor eating areas, the shopping area/strip mall, the Mall, and several other vibes your town emitting.


    Here's a few suggestions:
    Place concrete behind strip mall in first pic, so that a garbage truck can access the Android's Dungeon without crossing grass.

    Also, in 1st photo, adjust the 3D hedges to where the lines match up. The corner I see needs adjusting to give it that "stepdown" look. Remove single hedges on the right side of that corner, and move the bottom 2 full size hedge lines over to the left to match the top two rows after removing the single hedges.

    On the second photo, the Kwik E Mart already has 2 public phones, so another phone booth seems like a bit of overkill. And the wall behind behind the KEM should go away, imo. It distracts from an otherwise lovely section; unless you want to block the view of the cult/Lard Lad.


    *When I saw the training wall in front of the pumpkin house, I thought it was perhaps a portal of sorts. Very cool, imo.

    3rd/6th Pic: Awesome shot. The only thing I can recommend is removing the 4th hedge on the left side of the Post Office and the right side of the library, as the other hedges in front of the City Hall only have 3. Perhaps a dumpster behind the left side of the Gulp and Blow, to make it accessible for the waste management people and to fill some of that concrete.

    4th and 5th Pic: Please don't change a single thing. Gorgeous!



    I apologize if you find my suggestions too critical. Just trying to provide constructive advice.


    Barry

    Hey Guys

    Recently done some more work on my town and now I've gotten a bit stuck with what else to add to these areas so some suggestions from you guys would be great.

    Nice stuff man I wasn't impressed at first but you really have a nice eye for design. I think you should randomize the position of the trees where Cletus/Muntz/Fort Sensible is, and maybe throw in some lighter Evergreens, etc. That church looks awesome!, but simple.The Mansions could use some trees but I'd assume you're working on them.The skating rink is the only thing i don't like but I have a hard time designing around it myself so no suggestion there (I really hate the building) And I usually just put it behind the mall with the letters blocked off, to create the illusion that the mall is bigger. Keep up the good work!! :)
