What Are You Gonna Do W/Orphan Alley?

Prev1
the challenge is what's it going to back up against that will mesh with it...
--> maybe avoid that problem by putting it in the top right corner of town. Or mixed-zone it with factories like the Heights ones & Spooky houses like a run-down industrial area / ghetto including:
wrecked brown houses, brown house farm, Terminus Station buildings, Recycling Centers, spooky houses, the burning building from Act one, Springfield Arms appartments (+ others), Muntz's, Cletus', the gun shop (friends prize), the Coconut Babaloo's falling apart skin, your industrial section of town with factories, GulpNBlow, Grocery / Try N Save, green park, ShotKickers, etc..

Maybe the fight area is bordered by streets but on the other side of the street the same open area continues as an urban concrete jungle decorated with broken streetlights from act 3, benches, basketball court, ....

    It'll be going straight into storage.

    I've put mine in the backlot area I have for Krustylu Studios. That way there's no need to try to connect it to anything else as I'm just treating it as though it's a standing set.

    Storage. Might use it if we get the new SH land released for a seedy area but no room at moment. It does go on the boardwalk if that's any help.

    In all honesty I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, I'm still trying to decide where is the best place for it to go with the minimum disturbance to my town.

    I haven't quite decided what to do with it, but I'll probably leave it where it is for now. It's a ratty part of town anyway :)

    Mines on the water currently but it's probably going to storage after the event is over. I also noticed as soon as I put it on the water, when I fight the battles it zooms it in a ridiculous amount, so much it cuts off the fighters to the far left/right.

    This looks very nice. :thumbup:


    I was going to store mine but after seeing this, I may keep it out. :?:

    Thanks Barry!
    I figured it just needs a bit of bulking up so that it looks more like a run down tenement instead of a movie set.
    They could've had some Orphan Alley craftable walls in the event instead of more healing plaster packs.

    Mine is hiding in my Springfield heights forest but it's probably heading for storage, although after seeing what some people have done with it I'm not so sure now

    Storage but I might move it near the mountains where I have my SH factories, if I can get it to look right.

    about the fights zooming in too much, haven't had that problem since I started manually zooming the camera back out after it zooms in on hoodlums I'm about to fight. Zoom it back out, then tap on the hoods to confirm you wanna fight them.

    I just got Dr. Crab, and couldn't be happier this event is done. Feels Good Man!! I was waiting until it was over to make my Zenith City and figure out what I was going to do with Orphan Alley.. I don't have any other movie studios, so I created a movie studio with One Week Wonders and used Orphan Alley as a back lot, and filled in with misc. stuff from this event.. I think it fits pretty well there. 2wg5hc2.jpg

    Same. As soon as I got Dr. Crab I was so happy that it was all finished. Loved the event but over it now. As for Orphan Alley, I'm hoping it will have a payout otherwise because of it's size and my lack of land it may go into storage.

    Some great designs! Kudos!

    I'd have to really reorganize a lot to do something similar though, so I'm afraid it's straight to storage for me

    Before reading this I'd never even considered putting it with my film lot but it meshes perfectly with the Radioactive Man film set so that's a definite bonus :D

    It's going straight into storage. It's big, ugly. and fits nowhere in my town. I just hope they fix the Juice Factory so we can go back between the original and damaged designs.
