Come play this beautiful medieval world full of quaint little peasant villages, grand castles and bustling shires of trade. Enjoy the rolling hills and forests, the sandy beaches and the grassy green meadows of Dracul Isle where peasants, nobles and lords share a quiet life in peace. Or do they? It seems these medieval folks have suffered through their own dark ages when certain sinister strangers came to their peaceful little island long ago in the shadowy night. Does one dare go to the far side of the island? Perhaps, only the brave and the curious will venture beyond that old rickety bridge to find out what really lies beyond. Will that be you?

There is a fenced-in stable for the stock and a small pond for fishing. The camp is surrounded by a gated fence for privacy. And unbeknownst to any curious travelers who might venture into the camp, this area is taboo to just any peasant or lord. Take heed! There could be some strange goings-on just beneath their weary feet. Beware!

Presenting my new world...Atlantis Renaissance
Over 11,000 years ago, there existed an island nation located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean that was populated by a noble and powerful race. This was the island of Atlantis. According to the legend, Atlantis was the domain of Poseidon, god of the sea. When Poseidon fell in love with a mortal woman, he created a dwelling at the top of the hill near the middle of the island and surrounded the dwelling with rings of water and land to protect her. When she gave birth to five sets of twin boys, they later became the rulers of Atlantis. Atlas was the first to rule.
To honor Poseidon, a temple was built at the top of the central hill and it housed a giant statue of Poseidon riding a chariot pulled by winged horses. This temple was the hub of the island where laws, tributes to Poseidon was given and judgments were passed. To facilitate travel and trade, canals were dug around the land masses and were connected together with one main water fareway to allow ships to enter Atlantis for trade. This made for three rings. The center ring holding the main temple, the second ring holding most of the commerce and entertainment areas and the third largest ring holding most of the general population. The outer ring entrance was always heavily guarded to prevent invaders and had a fortress nearby.
Atlanteans lived a prosperous life, but greed and power began to change them. When Zeus saw the immortality of the people, he became anger and in one violent surge, the island and its people were gone. This is the summary of the story told by Plato around 360 BC. The legend of Atlantis has been debated for 2000 years.
This legend inspired my creation of a Sims version, which I call Atlantis Renaissance. This rebirth is strictly my humble interpretation of the island, although I tried to build the world according to Plato's description and the different artist renderings. This legendary world has been modified due to the game limitations and to meet the needs of a Sims population. Sculpting the land rings and water canals was a very unique challenge, as well as building lots and roads in a circular fashion.There are dirt roads and pathways for your Sims to travel on by foot, bike or car. (cars are unavoidable) This island was designed and built with the legend in mind, but it can easily be converted to a more modern world play such as a tourist town or whatever your imagination can come up with. It has been thoroughly Sims tested.
Description of World:
Center Ring: Temple of Poseidon (town hall) sits high on a hill and at the base of the hill is a small Bristro for socializing and hearing the latest island news. This ring is surrounded by a water canal and is connected to the second ring by bridges. (2 C-lots)
Second Ring: holds most of the buisnesses and entertainment areas. There are numerous little retreats available for the Sims hygiene, hunger, social and entertainment needs also.
Community lots available: Ammon Pool, Diaprepe's Market, Plutarch Academy, Saris Park, Sonchio Books & Scrolls, Atlantis Public Restrooms, Plato's Library, Azaes Canal Retreat, Hermocrates Spa/Fitness Center, Meneseus Hospital, Apollo Writer's Club, Psenophis Museum of Art, Atlantis Commons Park, Elasippus Theater, Gadietus Amphitheater, Atlantis Cemetery, Toteni's Tatto/Stylist Shoppes, Atlantis Winery, Atlantis Fire Brigade and the Kaza Sports Bar (EA remodel)
Third Ring: holds most of the residential homes, vineyards, parks, playgrounds and a few community areas. This ring is heavily guarded by the Atlantean military. There are watch towers on each side of the canal entrance to prevent invasion of the inner rings.
Community lots available: Canal Retreat, Persephone Hot Springs, Heliopolis Playground, Eumelus Park (EA remodel), Atlantis Seashore Retreat, Azaes Seashore Retreat, Seashore Public Restrooms, Evenor Pond, Fortress of Atlantis, Cumelas Park, Poseidon Aquarium.
The residential lots have been divided according to population classes: Peasant, Middle Class, Upper Middle Class and Nobility.
Peasant- 3 furnished lots (two are starters) 4 unfurnished on 20x40 lots. (built in rowhouse fashion) These homes are on the other side of the island near the beach front. Numerous empty lots are further down for any future lot needs.
Middle Class- 4 furnished/6 unfurnished on 20x40 lots (built in rowhouse fashion)
Upper Class- 1 furnished/ 3 unfurnished lots on 20x40 lots.
Nobility- 2 furnished lots/ 9 unfurnished (lots vary in size)
All lots were Custom built by me, except for the two EA lots.
Total Community Lots with Buildings: 34 Without Buildings: 7
Total Residential Lots with Buildings: 32 Without Buildings: 44
Custom Content used: 1 Greek railing and arch by Dgandy and Carzarupt's rabbit hole rugs. (or you can get the Jynx rabbithole rugs from MTS) 1 EA store item (Poseidon's Fury) is needed for it to show up in the Aquarium.
Requirements: Ambitions, World Adventures, Late Night, Free download, Riverview.
File size: 60MB Total lots: 117

Thanks, everyone and hope you will have an interest in my new world.
These pictures don't show the three rings as well as I would like, but it was difficult to get a good shot. As usual, game pics never do justice to the real game images, so hope the following shots will be enough for you to want to take a look see at my endeavors.

Hello there! As you can see, I have been doing some EA remodels of the homes in Sunset Valley. I had never even looked at any of the homes in that hood because I have always built my own, but one peek, and I just had to bring in the designers and landscapers to make these poor homes look more stylist and more functional for our deserving Sims. I hope you like what I have done with some of the uh....homely lots. Hmmmm....maybe, Riverview next? Or Bridgeport? Who knows how crazy I might get with these remodels. LOL Well, hope you will have an interest in some of these to dress up your hood. Have a good one and hugs, Judy

Hey everyone! Sorry I have not made any lots for you lately, but my game is broken. I have a beautiful mansion built right now and ready for submission, but I am having a problem with my game packaging my CC. It will not package the CC or even some of the Store items. I am not the only one having this problem either. I may have to do the dreaded re-install. GRRR! If anyone has had this problem and has found the solution, let me know, please.
Hopefully, I can start submitting some lots soon. Have a great day.
Update: 03-27-11 Good news! I got my game fixed and have submitted a new lot called Morris Avenue, which you can view on my upcoming pod.

Hi everyone, I am proud to present my first new world. Pandora, for your game pleasure. This beautiful fantasy world is a lush tropical island with rolling hills, island cliffs, several waterfalls, (5) and plenty of beach area. It is delightfully alive with the sounds of the falls, the crashing waves of the ocean and the many sea gulls that frequent the beaches. There is also a tiny companion island off the main island that would be suitable for added game play if desired.
This gorgeous world was inspired by the movie, Avatar, but was created according to my vision of such a fantasy hood, and of course, adapted for the needs of my wonderful Navi Sims race that was created to live there. The architectural style of the homes and community lots were built to accommodate the tropical weather of the island. They are designed to catch the full breeze of the ocean and utilize the beautiful views of the island landscape. Each home has an amazing visa view of the beach and ocean. Since the Navi are a fun loving people, the homes are built with lots of color and pattern in their decor. Due to limited materials on the island, the structures of the island take on a uniformity style and design. All the homes have a pool, a garden area and some have fresh water ponds.This island paradise is not your usual game play. There are no cars or modes of transportation other than walking. There is no electricity, so the island homes are lit with oil lamps and torches. Of course, due to the limitations of the game, certain electrical appliances were used such as the stove and fridge. Plus, communication with the cell phone is unavoidable.
The Navi race was loosely based on the Navi of Avatar. Again, due to the limitations of the game, they were created according to my vision and the help of TSR artists. These amazing people are fishermen, artists and gardeners. They all love the outdoors and will be able to enjoy and explore the full island terrain. They can enjoy many pleasures at the Palace Square, the Palace Fishing Hole, the Palace Cemetery and even at the Palace Rest Area. Since there are no highways on this island, there are pathways for the Sims to travel by foot to any destination or they may opt to take some shortcuts. The island is very small, so the Sims can travel easily about the island in a short period of time.
This world will be offered for download at Media Fire at these links.
Without Buildings: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?79amft9dq1c4h48
With Buildings: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?cxjp0xswoi7q07x
If you chose Pandora.With Lots, all the residential lots will be unfurnished, except for the Palace and the community lots, which are fully furnished and ready for immediate game play. The world files are very small, so downloading should not take long.
All the world lots will be available for download at TSR, if you wish to get the lots completely decorated and furnished. The four Navi Sims will also be offered on December 4th, if you chose to download them.
I hope you will have an interest in my new world. It has taken many months of diligent work and laborious building to develop this amazing new hood. I hope you will find as much pleasure in this unique hood as I have in creating it.
Special credit goes to Daisylee for her patience and tutoring in CAW.
Also, thanks to all the other TSR artists, who provided their beautiful creations for the lots and Sims. Special thanks especially go to Dgandy, MelissaMel and Ghost21 for their wonderful custom content. Base game, Ambitions and World Adventures needed, as well as the free world, Riverside.
I hope you will accept this beautiful world and all its created components as my Christmas gift to all the TSR downloaders. You have alll been so kind with your wonderful comments and encouragement this past year.
Thanks so much and hugs to all, Judy
