Town too boring? Looking too much like all your other neighbors? Why not add a few unique items that YOU create to give your town a custom look, not too mention it will make your neighbors envious….
You can check out some design inspiration here:
Here’s a little more from Bunny about the differences in 2D vs 3D:
Images, designs, and/or words that lay flat in your TSTO towns. This could be as simple as writing a name to the extreme of using over 1000 decorations to make an intricate photo across your land. The items seem to flow seamlessly into your land. These type of designs usually take up just the area you predetermine. You can also use the “wording” to leave a small message to a neighbor (if you are not in contact in one of the blogs/social sites already). Something like, “Hi, Joe!” It adds a little more options and a fun way to communicate that is currently not available in the game for us (hint hint EA).
Decorations that seem to almost grow out/pop out of your land. Rising anywhere from a little bit to several stories into the air. You can make a building look like it is on a higher level than the surrounding ones, make water appear to flow from a mountaintop down into a lake below, make steps leading up up up into a location or down down down under ground. You can also make extra building or structures that you are wanting, but are not available in the game. Like a parking garage, addition to a house, or extra wings/rooms for the hospital. Many times this type of design takes up a large amount of land due to you need the space to make the “step-up” or “step down” to another level.
You can always mix the 2D & 3D together.
Either way, they add a unique look to your town. The possibilities are endless. They also help to make your town stand out from the others.
