Hidden Springs

I finally started a new game in Hidden Springs on the weekend.  Some of the scenery is really beautiful and there are some really nice spots hidden amongst that greenery.  It actually looks like they've put a lot of effort into providing a nice setting for the town and giving it some character. 





Unfortunately, to balance out all that greenery, the centre of town is one big paving showroom with ample parking for your sims' abandoned cars.  Sure, there are a few trees ... see that dead one there?  That pink thing is some kind of fake cafe with ample toilet facilities.  The outdoor eating area at the bistro nearby is only slightly more inviting.  


For some reason, the houses in the "classy" bit of town look like an abandoned set from Edward Scissorhands (more about those another time).  Anyway, the first thing I did was bulldoze that enormous grey (and pink) eyesore and replace it with a modified version of my big park from Sunset Valley, which will do for now. 


Then I spent most of the day fixing up the town hall landscaping ...


And a little bit of time revamping the bistro as a proper small park ...

i had the same thought. the main park in town is dreadfully cold and lifeless, compared to the rest of the town. this park belongs in bridgeport, not hidden springs. i havent replaced it yet, but i do plan on bulldozing it and building my own park there, maybe even with playground stuff. i redid the little nightclub too, to have some of the late night goodies. i havent alterd a whole lot tho, compared to other towns. i really love this place

I'm not so keen on some of the lots - there are a few that they didn't put much care or effort into - but fortunately I like revamping things!

And it's not easy being green!
