OK, I now have laid out the Zukutra world referenced in the comments to my liking. It turns out that I am constitutionally incapable of just dropping lots where they fit. I have to lay out a logical flow of downtown and appropriate residential neighborhoods and then go back to the usual haunts to download some new buildings to suit the new themes. So I had to try the lots in a bunch of different places until a reasonable layout finally sprang from my brain.
I still have a thread running with CAW expert Simsample (oh, the irony of the username) about Avalon. If (s)he can get it to export properly for me before I have moved over into Zukutra, I’ll probably switch back to it. Both worlds offer some fun tradeoffs. I’ve really gotten to like the blue landscape paint of the fairy/alien world half of Zukutra.
I expect to be up and playing again pretty soon. I think I’ll be able to drag myself away from world layout and actually POST from my backlog too. We have all of the triplet’s childhood to experience 🙂 :).
