The making of Windy Flat My favorite TS2 world comes to TS3

Then came TS3, and of course I slowly converted my sims for this too. Always starting with dear old Micky Dimms. (pictured with daughter Kitty.)
He was modeled after one of our cats, who was rather thuggish and had a squashed in nose. Although Micky the sim was always nice. After him came the rest and I would drop them into various games and watch there antics. It is only now that the game has progressed that I had the idea of rebuilding there actual world. The TS2 version was rather spars.
With CAW, I set out recreating my town with visions of making bigger and better than the original.
I was really pleased with it as it came together and it started to look like a town.
Through the generosity of a lot here and at CT I was able to fill my world with housing.
Since then I have been steadily plugging away, building community lots and dressing the world. I still have one pub and the park to finish. I also want to build a dog park and a small nectary too, that will probably be it for Comm lots, except for a couple more fishing spots, which are easy to put together. I still have to finish four of my reconstructed houses and start building 3 more. I am a bit over building at the moment. :wacko:/>
Yesterday I set all my sims routing and started on the ruins of the old fishing wharfs. I have kept to the theme of the original story I had for this town. Because my made sims never had parents I had a disaster destroy the town, that's why all my sims are orphans. When Windy Flat was rebuilt they all came home. hence all the ruins and old broken wharf. When this if finished I will probably post the story along with it too.
What the town currently looks like. (I took most of the houses out to make the saves quicker.)
the area that I was working on yesterday.
Still so much to do but it is getting there.

Winnie just had some great ideas about a broken sea wall, I think I can do that. I also want to put in a lighthouse.
I think the next step will be pulling my builds and finishing them in Rich's build world, I want to put the rest of the housing back in so I can blend it into the landscape.
I also found the celebrity trailers in CAW. Does any one know if these will work not being on a lot?

Trif's Fisherman's roost looks perfect behind the fishing park.
I think I am done now with my ruins and swamp. Just a bit more painting now, I think.
I got some more building done tonight too.

This may changed. I am not too happy with the top floor, might try and go down one more level, if I can figure out how.
