    Of your town's overinflated ego/head! HAHAHAH

    Kidding, you do realize that posts like these leave you open to ridicule? Or perhaps this is just a cleverly disguised add-me thread?

    Either way, I am sure that those of us who have reached level 24 will not agree that your Springfield is the best of the bestest. I happen to think that I've got some friends on my list who have jaw-dropping towns. So there! LOL

    For a while now I've considered my Springfield to be infinitely superior to other people's. Call it a hunch, but I doubt there's a prettier Springfield out there. Now, as some may protest my arrogance, I thought it might be useful to discuss a set of criteria for a good Springfield so that such self-satisfied debate can take place within an agreed structure.

    Now admittedly it could be argued that the following criteria have been intentionally chosen to favour my own Springfield, but if you feel any of the criteria are flawed then explain why.

    PROPOSED CRITERIA FOR A GOOD SPRINGFIELD

    A good Springfield should:
    1. Make attractive and functional use of building placement and decorations
    2. Have a well thought out town layout, probably with clearly established neighbourhoods
    3. Make good use of space
    4. Ensure a logical and tidy approach to roads, rivers and pavements
    5. Value creativity in town planning

    In particular, a good Springfield should avoid:
    6. Clumsily placed buildings or decorations (eg houses misaligned with roads, fences with gaps etc)
    7. House farms - the height of ugliness


    What have I missed?

    Wow I find this disturbing on so many levels. There have been many SF that are designed creatively which would not meet your criteria of a "good" Springfield. Stop trying to squelch the creativity of others with these so called standards, MYOS (Mind your own Springfield)

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. I've see. A few amazing Springfields with well designed house farms, sometimes I honestly think the more houses the better. Okay I'm not talking like 1000 brown houses crammed on one square plot of land but more like 40 different houses as opposed to 10. And that is just my opinion.
