What Have You Done With 3D?

Edit: With the switch to the new forum format, the first post in this thread was deleted. Also, the new Photobucket policy has blocked many images. I've tried to restore what I could.

Where else to begin a thread on 3D than with @MelDesigner's skyscrapers? This was her first:


But not her last:


We've all seen our fair share of hedge hills, but have you seen anyone top this pyramid design by @jofre_nash?


Customized drive-in theatres are almost a rite of passage. There are many great examples, but the recent purge makes finding them a bit tough. Nonetheless, I was able find this very early gem by @TotalTapper in gif form:


@Mopurglar taught us how to do it in Krustyland:

    Super great work all! I don't have much 3-D design in my Springfield, so I appreciate seeing yours :)

    I haven't done much due to lack of space, but I have this:

    Oh wow I like what you did with that. That water thing is pretty big so I didn't have really anywhere to put it. But that's a great idea for it. I'll probably do that exact same thing to it, maybe a little different but I'm gonna wait for the Desert update first, I think it may look good around Dirt and the Desert.

    Those look great, Bette and 1pillform! I was hoping we could get a broad range of 3D designs, and it looks like we're off to a great start.

    I want to continue to acknowledge early innovators, so here are a couple designs by pharrah2003 from a few years ago:

    Mokkabee always blows me away. So creative.

    I wish Jofre Nash was still around. I've always loved his pyramids. Still got him in my neighbor list just in case.
    Might have to borrow his pyramid design some day...

    A few more from me. I created a custom condo/apartment building. I also made two custom Casino's....remember those signs they gave us? With no buildings to go with them? Well I decided to make two custom buildings for them.

    The condo building

    Custom Casino 1, in case you were wondering ya I use a hack sometimes to place things in different locations
    to make them look good. Like the Burns Casino, I placed it on the boardwalk where it belongs.

    Custom Casino 2

    Some popular designs that first appeared on other sites.

    These two by Steven Itman were reposted in tstoaddicts:



    OSebhlen posted these on tstotopix:

    Remember all those custom-made stadium stands before stadium stands officially appeared in the game? A great example here by horatiohorton at tstoforum:


    And another from MelDesigner on Redditt:

    These are amazing people. Wow!.... Also, I wish someone would post the Krusty Land ones on all the threads where people are complaining that there's nothing to do there.

    Nothing because it uses up too many items. If we didn't have an items limit then I'd use 3D.

    Really envious of some of these designs. I once had a rather intricate 3-D design that involved the volcano lair, but eventually had to dismantle it as it made my town too sluggish. I'm occasionally tempted to give it another go, but I'm getting to close to the decoration limit.

    I took inspiration from 1pillform's Squidport Entrance hillside (hope you don't mind)

    I have several sections done in 3D, nothing compared to some of the ones I've seen here, but this is my fav:

    Wow! So many cool designs!

    I certainly have to agree with Annathewicked. Scott's designs and executions of concepts are top shelf.

    Those are very pretty compounds, composersmus and aCe2k, and I well-remember, jerryscrip988, when you first posted that terrific building combo.

    Thanks, Anna and Barry. I hope we'll see you posting your designs in this thread. That goes for you too Awez!

    I intend to post more of my favorite designs by other people, but I suppose it's only fair I post some of my own if I'm asking others to do so. I'll probably edit this post later since these designs look different now, but I'm too lazy to redo the pics:
