I have created a new world called Angel Falls.

UPDATE: World on hold while i correct some issues. Stay tuned...




BACKGROUND:
Angel Falls was discovered by French explorers who instantly fell in love with the island as the earth was ripe and flourishing and the large crystal clear waterfall provided all the drinking water they needed. They named the island Angel Falls after discovering the shape of the island resembled angel wings. They never left.

Over 300 years later the island has grown into a thriving community. The left side of the island was where the explorers first settled so here the buildings are much older and is now more of a farming community due to the fertile land surrounding the waterfall. Over the years the British government heard of this new flourishing land and set up an army base near to the waterfall and claimed the land as their own. Following this, the community spread across to the other side of the island and with it came the construction of a town centre complete with an array of job opportunities and amenities. Angel Falls showcases an array of quaint farm houses reminiscent of France in the middle ages to town houses design rooted in the Victorian era.

World Size: Medium
Size: 52.39 MB
Compatibility: World Adventures

TOTAL LOTS = 78
Community Lots = 29 (including all 16 rabbitholes)
Residential Lots= 49 (including 19 empty lots)

CC: I have used the minimum about of CC in my world- it is mainly stuff from the Sims 3 store to go into the lots, but you can do without this. I would however advise downloading the below so the outside of things look the same (please note that some of the below CC you have to pay for so it really does not matter if you do not have it, it will just look a little different is all):

I do hope you will enjoy this world and download it. It has taken me over a month to build and even though I have come up against many barriers, I feel Angel Falls is a good starter island and all-rounder. I have fully tested and have found it all to be in working order, but please let me know if there are any problems…..

Feedback welcome......

Well it's lovely from the screen shots but some of the content listed that you advise we get is from TSR and is subscriber only. One appears to be a set of stairs. It is free, nevertheless I don't download from that source for various reasons. If we don't have that content am I going to have to go around replacing stairs manually? Not trying to be a pain, I just never downloaded a world with CC from third party sites and don't know what happens if I install the world and that content isn't there.

All that being said, it really looks gorgeous! I love the backstory, too.

Call me Summer or JM (for JennyMoonlight) just don't call me late for spaghetti with meatballs!

Hi SummerSong. I understand your concerns. It is no problem if you do not want to download the CC as the stairs will still show-up, but will just look different. This is the same for all the CC - the items will still be there but will just look a little different

I hope this helps are you are still keen to try it xxxx

This does look lovely. I love the little house on the hill.

SommerSong, is there something I should know about CC from TSR? I've downloaded a ton of stuff from there.

Beautiful World! I love how you made it into the shape of wings and the Park & City Hall would probably my Sim's favorite spot. Very pretty. GJ!

StarSarah, it looks really nice! Do I recognize some of Sookielee's houses in the fourth screenshot or did you build those? They're so cute!

SommerSong, is there something I should know about CC from TSR? I've downloaded a ton of stuff from there.

SommerSong, it would seem the owner of TSR has stooped to some very low levels (including banning members based on PayPal info received from another pay site (RoseSims), whether or not that person had done anything wrong on TSR or not--the info shared was PayPal records that at the very least was a security breach, and at most was fraudulent). Several of the "featured artists" have well-deserved reputations for being extremely mean and nasty (people here think I get cranky sometimes, what some of those FAs have done goes way beyond cranky).

As if that isn't enough, do you know why TSR Workshop was developed? For TS2, TSR got rich on the backs of people like Wes Howe, who developed tools free for everyone to use. None of those developers had the foresight to include a EULA with their tools. The pay site owners would huddle with them, learn how to use the tools, then take everything they learned back to their own sites where even the people who had spent countless hours programming and testing the tools to begin with, couldn't even have access to that stuff. When Wes started working on tools for TS3, he included a strict EULA that forbade their use in the creation of content that would be used as pay content. If it hadn't been for that EULA, TSRW likely never would have been created. As it was, the first pay files at Rose Sims and Peggy's were created with Wes's tools that had a no-pay stipulation in the EULA.

Much of what has gone on I've witnessed first-hand and it wasn't a pretty sight. I won't support a site that does the type of things they have done, and many people, including me, won't use content from TSR (I also refuse to use anything from RoseSims or PeggySims because of them breaking Wes's EULA), even if we can download it free elsewhere, not just because it may be morally wrong, but because we prefer not to give TSR any type of publicity and inadvertently convince someone who doesn't know any better to spend money at TSR. It's the principal of the thing, if you know what I mean. If the only third party site on the internet was TSR I'd stop playing The Sims before I downloaded stuff from that site.

I can confirm what Regina said as well. A lot of the Simming community are up in arms over some of the things that's been going on with TSR personel and artists since before the Sims 3 came out. When they out right take stuff off of modthesims, post it on their site, and then charge for it - never mind stealing it - well that's just plain wrong. Never mind having the nerve to publicly post secure info about people and accusing them of being theives themselves when I know for a fact several of the people they "exposed" private info didn't even remotely do what TSR accused them of. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black - when TSR were the only ones it has been proven to have stolen anything. Believe me the artist whose work they stole last year was beyond angry and as honorable as they come.

I was with TSR when they first started with Sims 1 and even to this day has a membership, but since they did what they did, I refuse to go there - even though I have friends that still create for them. I have told my friends that as long as they are still there, they won't see me at their personal sites because my respect for them has drastically dwindled. I cannot support even friends who stay with a site that does all TSR has done.

Regina is also right about some of TSR's top artists. You doubt it - try using some of Cyclonesues terrains and other creations without her explicit permission. She'll have your head on a platter in a heart beat. So you use any of their stuff in your creations, you really need to okay it with them and then make darn sure this stuff does not download into peoples games. It does happen. I got a bunch of SA99 stuff (who is Sims Addict over at TSR) in a hood I downloaded last week before the site went down, and i never went to TSR, so this stuff can download this CC without you downloading it. I don't use CC, so I had to spend a fair amount of time removing all this stuff from my game. Apparently some CC will download with worlds just like it's doing in houses with families from the exchange. So beware. I cannot say what will download and what won't but I do know all of SA99's kitchen decor and other decor and some build items - windows and doors had to be removed from my game, as I am determined to be third party content free until EA finds a way for this CC and their game to play without so many conflicts and lag. Nevermind the anger one may ensue if the creators know people are getting this CC without going to TSR. Whether the CC in this world does that i will see tonight as I again have a clean game.

Hi guys

Firstly thank you for your feedback on my world. I hope you are able to download it and enjoy it.

You are right Regina, they are a few of Sookielee's houses. I loved them when i first saw them and could not help downloading them. I have also used a couple of other houses that i have found here and there too, mostly from the exchange here.

Regarding TSR, i had NO idea that all of this had gone on, i am frankly shocked! I am the first to admit i am a paying subscriber of TSR and do download a lot of their stuff which i really enjoy. Also, as you will see above, a few of the things in my world is from TSR which i am now concerned about. If people will not download and play my world becuase i have used a few things from TSR, then please let me know and i am happy to take these things out and re-post the game. I do not agree with what they have done and will be re-thinking my membership
