Looks great! I almost feel like it could do with a custom distant terrain!

I also sort of wish there was a larger smoke effect out there, but I guess world-builders have to do with what they have!

It looks amazing as always. I also love the addition of the coral reefs and the distant terrain adds interest on the horizon. Wonderful update!

Cannot wait to have Sims explore all of this!

Wow, so many comments and nice words, thanks a lot guys! That gives me a huge boost of motivation
I'm glad you like the coral reefs, the sky, the distant terrain and the volcano so far

The IP distant terrain works perfectly for what I was aiming for, but I know I will need a custom DT for some future worlds.

I do wish that too! I had to use multiple smoke effects from SuperCAW to create this, the biggest waterfall steam effect just wasn't enough. But sometimes I like this having to do with what we have thing, it gives me ideas I would never come up with otherwise

I think the smoke effect is fine. We will look at it at few times and say WOW and take some pics, but most of the time will be busy doing everything else. There is so much to see and do and explore we won't be looking at the volcano that much. At least me. Just know it is there, ready to fry our Sims at any moment!!!! DANGER!!! LOL

I was so excited to read that there will be tombs, and all interconnected! I love this development and the fact that you tell a story, or a history lesson with the tombs, wow, I can't wait for this

Horses would be a nightmare for sure, but deer might be nice wandering around. Wouldn't it be nice if you could change the look of the deer to some otherworldly creature, in a shade of aquamarine

It looks like you made huge progress on the map! Volcano's are stereotypical for a reason, it looks great, can't wait to see it finished. I love the plants and the way you've layered them in the wetlands, you got the balance right I think and that waterfall is sensational. Waterfall's in the game usually look pretty fake, yours doesn't! That coral reef is something else though.

The sky............

Oh, and if I lived on that island, I would be glad there was no greater smoke rising from that volcano

Hey just entered this thread today and gosh is this world amazing! After reading through the first six pages and the most recent three pages (and skimming through the rest), I wanted to know if you're still thinking about making floating islands. Since you're making tomb lots (ahh! So excited.), I just thought it would be really neat if dive pools were used to actually travel to various floating islands if you're still planning on including them.

Expanding on the floating islands - Having three to five houses altogether among all of the floating islands for winged folk (aka fairies), and only winged ones live on them, would be really cool. They would be a slightly different species from the Uranesians, allowing a little more diversity in looks. I love the original idea of waterfalls coming down from them too, which makes me think of water, which makes me wonder if there will be a mer-people species. (If you give a mouse a cookie..) Haha I'm veering off track aren't I..

It would be neat if all the hypothetical floating islands each had a name and there was an adventure that lead an adventurer sim from one to the next. Another idea I have is that the floating islands are inaccessible until the sim has completed other specific adventures as a prerequisite. This is just some wishful thinking on my part.

These are just some ideas, don't feel any pressure to include them if they don't work for the storyline/if it's too much//if it's not possible(I know nothing about world creation)/if it's not in your vision for the world/etc, because I completely understand that. :}

This world is mesmerizing!
Nilxis, you're an ancient magical creature with mystical powers from that world, admit it!
Seriously though, this is beyond any skill level I have ever seen.

I just stumbled upon this thread today, and I must say that it continues to amaze me that there are still other people not only playing the Sims 3 but also creating worlds, etc. for it! I try to stick to script mods only, so I probably wouldn't be playing Uranesia, but looking at all of the beautiful landscaping, building, sim creation, etc. that's going into it is really amazing! I don't have any cc myself, but I'm kind of tempted to join in on the sim making. You probably don't need me to tell you this, but keep up all of the amazing work!!

It's gonna be both history and stories :P

Thanks for the idea! I agree that deer would look nice, but can you edit them in CAS? I've read that you can get them in CAS but I'm not sure if actually editing them is possible. But I can also edit a horse and make it smaller with a custom slider, which would look nice too

@Kylaaab, Yes! I still want to add some floating islands, but probably fewer than I imagined first. Most of the islands are going to be decorative, made with CAW objects, but I’d love to make at least one of them accessible (as a lot), so I agree using dive pools to get there would be a nice option (but getting there is not going to be easy!). About winged creatures living in the floating islands, I have to say this is a very good idea, it makes sense and sounds cool. Unfortunately, right now all the sims who are not the ones in the city (let’s call them this way haha) have been planned and such thing wouldn’t work with the storyline. But had you suggested this idea 3 years ago I would probably have included it! About mer-people, all I’ll I’m going to say is you’ll have to figure it out yourself :P
I hope that answers your questions, even if all I said pretty much is “you’ll see” lol, and thanks for the ideas anyway!

@MystAngel, Hahahah, never! thanks for your comment

@Sarathewise, Thanks! You’ll definitely need CC though if you want to play in Uranesia, it’s what partly gives the world its identity and makes it look the way it does. You can check out the sim creation thread here if you’re interested: http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...914#post5512914 but we are using CC for the sims as well.

This is such a beautiful world and a massive project! I see you have been working on it for a long time. I can't wait to add it to my game...so do you have any idea when it will be finished and available for download?

I'd love to tell you but I really have no idea, much less than what it's taken so far, for sure, but there's still quite a bit of work ahead.

This world is astounding! I love the work you've done with searching for ideas for the architecture and the LORE is simply intriguing. Everything about it is so inspirational, can't wait to see the final version!
