As always when I am building, I start out with a vague idea. I rezz this, that and some more and remove it again. Rinse and repeat for a while, until I strike the right cord. The right cord for me this time was a waterlogged street, graced with various buildings from Schultz Bros. and Urban Jungle.
While building, I had given access to a few people and their pictures alerted Mr. Schultz to my endeavors. When he came to visit, he tempted me with his elevated train tracks. That threw me for a loop. I just HAD to use them and so my plan for the sim evolved.
Then, when I made my peace with how the build looked like, Mr. Schultz pulled another rabbit out of the hat; The 42 Front Street building.
An amazing build, that has just enough derelict, just enough wear and tear to be perfect. And perfect it is in my not so humble opinion. Of course, I had to use it and my already changed plan of building a wonderful waterlogged street, with overgrown builds and a dramatic water landscape surrounding it, derailed even further.
To top it off, in my enthusiasm for the said building, it had to be photographed. Thank goodness I didn’t post it right away, as it is the exact angle Mr. Schultz used on Flickr. Great minds and all that I guess?
Water landscape, surrounded by majestic cliffs and trees and all that, now completely derailed and it looked more and more like a blob of builds in the middle of a sim, sprinkled liberally with greenery.
Dramatic pause here, imagine Gregory Kune singing Nessun Dorma in the background:
I know I have posted a soon picture, indicating that I would open the sim in the next days. But I won’t.
Another dramatic pause…..
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, I made a mistake in gauging how much time I would need to truly finish the build. While the build as it is, is very nice, if I do say so myself, it is not a finished build. It really is a blob of builds, covered in greens. I want to finish it and for that, I need some more time.
To make matters worse I have removed access for most who had access. Very soon all of you will have access for at least two weeks (make sure you thank Jackson for that generous amount of time as I was planning on opening for 2 days) and after that time we will see.
So there you have it. A changed plan, and with that, a changed timeframe for opening the sim.
Stay the course, there are many many beautiful sims to visit while I finish building mine.
And last but not least, there is this:
