I like Stoneshield, I love what you did to it on your last update. But I also love Vargfjell (sp)...hard decision here, love them both.

Well I love all three - but from my standpoint I think the one to most benefit first would be Stoneshields - seeing I love the water and getting out of the city part seeing other than your world you won't generally ever see me playing a world based in the city - so I'd be definitely placing my sims into the new section and keep the city part as more wonderful backdrop with my main story being told from the watery area.

That said all three will marvelously be enhanced by the addition of IP in some way. I see a busy harbor in Stoneshields, a lazy fishing bay for Vargfjell seeing the ancestry goes back to fishing forever there with the Norsemen and Vikings and such. GreyMeadow most definitely an aristocratic pleasure dome to satisfy the wealth and old ancestry - ornate pleasurecraft to indulge the wealthies importance of self as well as a dinky area for the few downtrodden where they can escape their dreadful lives in the calm of the seas and hopefully out of the feared Krackens grasp. Yeah stories are waiting to be told in all three of your worlds to the benefit of IP - but would feel that Stoneshields really - really needs the diversion and benefit of at least a busy port harbor first.

Oh and the additions to this new work - absolutely perfect choices - I just love it. As much as I love all three of the other worlds, I hate to say it, but I think I am going to love this new one the best of them all and that is saying a lot. My goodness it is magnificient Quailhogs - just wonderful.

Oh and about the big ST Venue and either those parks - they could all be eliminated as far as I am concerned. I really think the big Venues only look good in some place you'd see the Jetsons if you ask me and I frequently remove them from many of my worlds even though I enjoy playing the ST careers - I just do not like those monstrously ugly Big Venues. I never really see the need for a specific pet park either as I rarely ever see anything using them until they have been added to enough to look more like a family park. I tend to go around in a few out of the way places and set a few of the keep full pet dishes and place a few salt licks (wish they weren't hot pink) and a food trouth or two for the wild creatures in towns I don't see any. I even hide one of those pet auto cleaner things in a barn or something of the sort - but really do not see the advantage of those pet specific parks. So you could easily eliminate the big venues and the pet parks as far as I am concerned. My sims are just as happy performing at an outdoor performance park or an indoor bar as they are anywhere. In fact I have yet to ever have one of my sims perform in one of the Big Venues anyway, as I said I generally remove the ugly monstousities except for a scarce few worlds they actually look alright in.

I play with all your worlds too so I would be happy with any of them being updated.
I never see dogs at the dog park... ever.. lol
In fact, I could probably play a world where the only community lot, besides the rabbit holes, is the big park because that really the only place I ever see a high number of sims
Go to the pool or the gym, there's like 2 sims. A club, the mixologists, bouncer and maybe one sim. The library, 4 sims that are standing around or on a computer. A fishing spot, no sims. A Java hut, no sims...
a Big park, like 15 sims! lol

happyjme: I also believe that you see less people on certain lots because the world you are using has a lot of community lots on it. I'm hoping that will be less of a problem in this world since I am omitting a lot of different types of lots, so the clubs and bars will actually have activity going on. I know that Grey Meadow is especially annoying with this. Everyone chooses to hang out at the Nectary out of all places; sims have some wild parties in there.

Hi Quail, I didn't see this thread until your decision was made to update Stoneshields...drat! I was going to nominate Grey Meadow, my favorite.

I love your Huntsborough world but the nasty note from Photobucket is preventing me from seeing what updates you have done. No matter, I'm sure they are all in your particular and unique style of building.

I had deleted all player made worlds before Dragon Valley and now find I don't care for it as much as I thought I would, so I recently re-dl'ed Grey Meadow, my most favorite of your worlds...I missed the Blightwoods way too much. Plus, a very different approach to seasons, the world has practically no summer, very short spring and mostly heavy on fall and winter...what a wonderful place for witches and vampires.

Can't wait until you update GM. I've sort of updated on my own and now is one of my favorites again.

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

I uploaded Huntington Hold, which will be one of the castles in Huntsborough. The link is on the front page of this thread, or just go to my studio. I uploaded this lot since I spent a significant amount of time working on it. Also, the castle in this world is not on a flat lot, so this upload will make it easier if you wish to place it in another world.

Its looking lovely! And now with IP, you wont have to actually connect the islands by land anymore. That must free up a lot of time and issues with placing bridges!! lol
