I proudly present you Teta 5120, a tiny extraterrestrial vacation world!
It has a small back story to it, so be patient and read on. Once I was playing the Sims 3 and my active sim was an aspiring and brave, but completely single, astronaut and I thought that it would be fun to bring him a date from another planet. Then I saw Lunar Lakes in the store and loved the concept, but as I didn't like the price at all I had to find other ways to get an alien world. One led to another and this map was created and my astronaut got happily married to a green girl from Teta 5120.
The map size is tiny (256x256) and it was thoroughly checked with CUSTARD before uploading. It is intended to work with Twallan's brilliant Traveler mod, get it at Nraas Industries.
So far it features a base camp, two residential lots, a park and a fishing spot - it's kind of difficult to create various community lots with base game only. It is currently unpopulated, but in the nearest future I plan to expand this map, using all EPs up to Showtime. That for sure will give me more options in creating an atmosphere I want.
Requirements and CC used:
- base game (patch version 1.29)
- Lunar Lakes weather files extracted by wonderful simsample here (included in the file)
- various custom .dds by me (the moon, brumbles, boxwood, terrain paints and rocks);
P.S. If you want to make your own lots for this map download a set of terrain paints to match the overall look here.
