Thread: In Praise of Calm, Serene Towns

  1. #1

    In Praise of Calm, Serene Towns

    Cobalt has trilled us, wowed us with many types of towns - often featuring artistic features, graphic design, landscape and deco wallopoloosas. All interesting to visit, many with an “I sure wouldn’t want to live there” vibe.

    Often when a new feature or deco element is introduced, I like to tour towns on my friends list to see the item(s) on the ground or in action. Sometimes I am looking for inspiration in how to handle an obnoxiously ugly CB. In doing these visits I am often amazed at how few towns are easy to wander around in, because too much frenetic activity greets you the minute you step in. Hitting you visually - “LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME!” Left, right, up and down - busy-ness everywhere. Often I give up the search after just a few seconds and move on to another town.

    There are 3 really, really calm, serene towns on my friend list that allow me to mosey around, search out what I am looking for with great ease, and leave when I am done as calmly as I entered in. Sandy (Truck Taz), Zena’s Greenlands, and Ralph’s town now managed by Gerry - My Little Town. They each give off a totally different design vibe, but don’t assault your visual senses with overdone decorating excess.

    So, thank you Sandy, Zena, Gerry for always making my visits extremely pleasant. Of course, when I return to my own hometown, I feel it is TOO BUSY and needs CALMING DOWN. I need to get to work on that and would love any of your suggestions!

    Hi Nevada. I don’t know who Alina is. I pretty much used my own friend list, but I am sure you and others know of such towns and can add them.

    I love your town too, Nana, and I go for an inspirational poke around on the regular.

    I know when I felt the need to de-clutter I took inspiration from someone or other that I visited and got rid of most of my different paving, just leaving grass underneath a lot of it. I had intended to redo it, but then I decided it looked far less fussy with grass without the end to juggle anything and risk ruining my layout. Maybe that's a place to start for you too..? Easy enough to put it back if you don't like the look anyway, lol.

    Yep, Bess - pavement and over landscaping seem to be my downfall. Often I use pavement so townies can move about, but then that adds to the “busy-ness” feel of things. Quite the conundrum.
