    Decorating with Letters

    Does anyone know how to make letters with soil or decorations? Do you have examples? How many squares are needed?

    I can make the 9 easier letters: C, E, F, H, I, L, O, T, & U. You can see a 5x5 E & T in my town.

    The game layout doesn’t seem to lend itself to the other 17 letters.

    Any suggestions?

    Think Q may be tricky as diagonal needed but otherwise just space and practice. You might find the creek helpful as it looks narrower than the square space it takes up

    I didn't pay attention yet to letters being easy or not, but I have some examples, where I made a screenshot over time, cos I found it impressive, how these words were made.

    This once was in my own town:

    It is made from roads type and the "points" from the landscape type, with deco on top for emphasis, i. e. to "see" them.
    At some point, I couldn't resist to put the hearts around

    I will post the others from other towns below.


    And sorry, I didn't find the "5x5 E & T" in your town (or zoo) - ?
