New York Winter Nights

Today I want to invite you on a very special trip: A tour through the city in a cold, winter night.
As you might guess from the topic, I have decided to update the world for Seasons. It took a while until I manged to get CAW working again, but it was definitively worth it. Snowy New York looks awesome ingame ! I hope the pictures can convey a bit of the atmosphere. As there are still many buildings without nightlights and many streets without streetlights, the city looks like there is kind of a big blackout, but that just adds to the atmosphere (I will fix that in the future!).

To see the pictures, go to the gallery

Moreover, I have installed a custom lighting mod to make the nights darker and more realistic. You can find it here, if you want to:

Introducing: Trevor Davis

If you ever built a world yourself, you know that it's important to playtest often. Otherwise you risk that the world crashes the game and hours of work are flopped.

This is were Trevor Davis is put into play. He is my playtest-dummy and the first Sim who is allowed to move to New York and test the city and all it's activities.

His first tour starts today at an appartment building near Central Park. I want to invite you to join his tour and use your chance to get in touch with the city in ingame persepective.

Spotlight: Central Park

Central Park, the green lung of Manhattan, is maybe one of the world's most famous parks.
It provides a large variety of recreational activities for your Sims to enjoy.

I have just finished planting all those virtual trees and I really hope you like the result. Check out the gallery to find some more screenshots!

Spotlight: Living in the heart of the city

Whose Sims don't dream about living in the core of the city next to it's pulsating heart?
Luckily, there is a free appartment right next to Times Square for your Sims to rent. Just make sure you can afford it ...
