Hi! Big Grin

I wanted to work a bit more with this world before showing it, but I couldn't resist and here's the first update:

THEME
Ziwa Bonde (in swahili Lake Valley), it's a world inspired in Eastern Africa, places like Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia or Zimbabwe. It will be a world based in the past, so you won't find actual elements such as modern technology, cars nor roads.
It will be divided into two main areas each one populated by two different tribes: one will live in the savanna area and the other one in a more wetter place.


Some of my inspiration pictures Wink

FEATURES
- Large map (2048x2048 ): the world will be very big and it will have many areas to explore, but I'll try to make it light so it will run better in low-end computers.
- I'll use a bit of CC in .package and some objects from the Store Safari set.
- It will be populated
- It will have custom INI files.
- It will require the following EPs:

* I'm using a recolored poster from Showtime, it's not necessary to own this EP but if you have it better for you Smile

PICTURES


Overview pic of what I've done.

Landscapes

That's all, I hope you like it. Opinions and suggestions are welcome! Wink
Bye!

Great eye for detail. You take the game and make it real.

Yes finally Africa! This is a new type of neighbourhood!
I like it. Can't wait to see what plains and savanna's you come up with.
This hood deserves a few Zebra's. And a few raccoons and deer. (I know how to add these to households)
Is this going to be a coastal world, cause I think it would be better to be landlocked. Mainly to keep the dry feel to it all. The river is cool though. Nice work.

Can I post some African pics for inspiration? I'm sure I can find some...
Love it!

Thanks tizerist and Ina Big Grin

Yes!, I plan to put zebras. I'd like to put them as wild horses (I heard somewhere that it's possible to add your own NPCs, so It will be nice to add custom wild horses too Cool ), if I can't do that I will create some households with a shepherd and his zebras.

The world will be landlocked.

Sure, you can post as many pics as you want Smile

I am sure this will be another wonderful world that you have done. How will it work though as a large world with no roads? Doesn't that cause problems unless the world is quite small?

It all looks great in the pics.

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your comments thumbs up

Daisy, the only problem I see is that it will take a long tme to travel from one place to another, but well that's a normal thing in the African Savanna.
There will be two villages and two tribes, so if you choose to live in one of the tribes you'll find in their village all what you need, so the distances will be long only if you choose to explore the rest of the world. That means that the world will have 2 schools, 2 city halls, 2 hospitals, etc. Each one in each village Wink
Almost all the families will have horses, so that will make it easier. And if I see that there are still problems I will add some Llamas here and there Smile
