My adorable kiddo has bought a fancy, shiny, new sim from Linden Labs! She's been wanting one for a while, and was able to get one for Christmas! And that being said, I've been given the task of sim design. It's a HUGE job, much bigger than I've even encountered, really. Sure, I've had homesteads before, but... there wasn't that many prims to play with, so it wasn't such a daunting task.
Obviously, the blue is water, the grey is road. Brown was for the playground, the big boxes was going to be be our 'downtown' area, where we'd have our food/coffee places. I put down the barn for our farm area, our house, and even a little church towards the center. At this point, I was still playing with the idea of where to put the mine.
