Right now I am slowly transforming a small area of Sunset Valley into Fae Valley. On this page, you will be able to view the progress, see some detailed pics of the lots as well as get some information on how and why I am putting certain areas together! This is rather slow going, time consuming and at times hair pulling frustration! I debated at one point, on scrapping the whole project and going in search of a medieval type world! But, after I calmed down- thankfully- I saw the potential of continuing to go about the redesign this way. Eventually in the story process, modern day Sunset Valley will come into play so I did want to keep everything togethe in one world!
Some of the design concept began quite a few months ago with a little fairie type build I did in the Pinochle point neighborhood. I finished the build, started on another one across the street(blehhhh yeah, that one is still very much a work in progress!) added a bit of world decor then got distracted and forgot about the project. When this new idea sprang up, I remembered the previous work and decided to combine all of it to create Fae Valley!
The main difficulty in this project is that I can only do a limited amount as far as world editing and decor? I look at this though as a stumbling block that any set designer might encounter when trying to create backdrops and sets on a location shoot!!
This is an overview of the neighborhood I am designing-
Main focus of neighborhood, Sacred Fae Grove- this lot is the primary set for many of the scenes already shot, but is still definitely a work in progress!!
This next lot is one that gave me frustration in trying to figure out! I wanted an area that would connect the neighborhood to the Lake in the back? It took some experimenting but I was finally able to place a custom community lot between Pinochle lake and my grove area!
The old road is designed with the future pets expansion in mind and the addition of Horses!!! It serves as an old WayFarer’s rest with public privy, shower, sleeping, space to water your horses- and while they’re drinking you can sneak off to take a dip in a private spring pool!
I should add, the accomodations are rustic and basic… if you want luxury, mayhaps you should find a castle to sleep at!
