    I love your town design. I never seem to be able to fit in much water as I always seem to need the land.

    With the mountains being North, that North strip (towards the 'east') looks absolutely magnificent with the use of the Springfield sign to let it naturaly drop to a lower level'. Nicely done. :thumbup:

    That piece of land where the judge is standing (between the Casino and the Wax musuem) seems to float above the water (for me anyway). Very nice optical illusion.

    Next to that the small take off strip including the 'landing lights' in front of the airplane made me smile.


    On the other hand I'm not sure what to make of the patches of road in your promenade pavement.
    They almost look like sinkholes in the making. :lol:


    All in all, very impressive. worshippy.gifworshippy.gif

    We've discussed your town before so I'll keep it short: I don't think I've seen a playable town (as opposed to a town constructed simply to display large-scale 3D effects) that is as ambitious in terms of shaping the landscape. That you pull it off convincingly is what makes your town such a pleasure to visit.

    Question: Not thinking of nuking, are you? I want to nuke my town, but I think I'd first want to do a panorama (I can no longer take pics with my device so it's out of the question). I'm sure I'm just projecting, and I mention it because my new town would look less like the series of set pieces it is now and would attempt a more rigorous transformation of the landscape...you know, like what you've done.

    Thanks guys! I will see what I can do about the promenade road pieces. They make it kinda hard to build in that area, and I'm not sure they look as tight as I thought they were going to look.

    I wouldn't nuke unless they release a lot more land, but I'll say that tearing everything down about a year ago was the best thing I could've done. It gives you freedom to build things in a cohesive way, rather than adding pieces, bit-by-bit. The panoramas in the stickied thread helped a ton for inspiration.

    I would offer to put together a panorama of your awesome town, but it took me more than 6 hours to put this one together. I can't believe how long it took--there has to be a quicker way to go about it. It's a shame that tsto.me is all messed up.

    I love how you've designed your springfield with all of the different landscaping, mine is pretty basic just it has quite a bit of detail which is almost unnoticeable in the panorama shot so I've been thinking of nuking my town to start over again.

    I apologise for the size of this image, but I do not know how to reduce its size on these forums :oops:

    One thing I did think of as feedback was to do with the landscaping using the hedges in the lower part of your springfield, I thought that the corners of this slope was a bit too jagged and diagonal and I played around a bit in my own springfield and managed to make a more organic looking curve using the hedges, I think you could also apply this to your own springfield to make it look like the hill is a bit more realistic and organic if that is what you are looking for. Here is a link of how to make circles in minecraft, it can also be applied to Tapped Out using the 2x1 hedge as 2 blocks in minecraft, using this guide you can create small arcs and quarter cirlces to link up the corners in a more curvy way.

    Hope this feedback was useful to you and hopefully I can also recreate my springfield just like your's at some point then we can have a springfield off 8)

    I think your town is outstanding. Several touches that I like are the S.W.A.T. guys near Fat Tony's, the I & S billboard, the tunnel entrance, the 3D levels, the amount of water you have, and so much more.

    I admire what you've created here. The levels and water must consume an astronomical amount of land, but you've made it without looking overdone.
    Your town is one I am happy to visit. I would say to keep up the great work, but I have a feeling you were probably already going to do that :)

    Thanks guys! And missed this feedback earlier--thank you! will definitely try rounding some corners once the hedges turn green again.
