Desert Hills Home

Postby lindawing » November 20th, 2018, 5:35 pm

We now have Terrain Tools! They can do a LOT with a lot. :yeah: I still have a lot of stuff to learn, and a lot of experimenting to do, but I'm already having a blast, and I'm up way later than I should be because of it.

Here are some pictures of the beginning of Desert Hills Home, where there is terrain manipulation only around the "stream," (which is a swimming pool, since we don't have on-lot river/stream capabilities. I want to experiment with sinking a fishing pond in one end of this pool, but I had other things to do tonight, after last night's beginning.

Then I added the hill that holds the house--which took a LOT of work and thought, and trying to figure out work-arounds for the stuff that we can't do, that I wish we COULD do, etc. The house is bare bones with its "basement" (not a true basement, because I wanted to build a walk-out basement for this first effort), its "first story" (which is actually the second story), and nothing more than the exterior decks. It has been play-tested for accessibility for everything to this point, so all is good, and I can hardly wait to finish the lot!

Finally, here are three photos of some interesting parts of the hillside build. I took more photos, but I guess the bin was full and I didn't realize it, so they didn't make it into the folder. That's OK...I'll get more when the house is more done.
