Twin Bayous v.4 – a Custom World for Sims 3

Background

clip_image019_thumb1Way down upon the Simwahanee and Apasimmacola bayous in the state of Louisimana sits the sleepy southern town of Twin Bayous looking out over the Gulf of Simexico.

Founded in 1832 by Henri Dutranoit of New Orleans, Twin Bayous served as an important hub for cotton exports out of the south in the ante-bellum days and was occupied early on by Union forces during the Civil War. After the war, thousands of refugees from the war-torn South traveled through the port of Twin Bayous aboard steamboats bound for Galveston, Texas. However, the town suffered economic hardship for a number decades when the railroad by-passed the town. During the Prohibition and Great Depression, the town did see a brief revival as it became a resort town known for its speakeasies and casinos. At one point it was known as the Hollywood of the south when Plumbob Pictures opened a studio there. In the 1940’s a hurricane wiped out all of the homes and farms in the Eastern Annex. So, today there are only empty lots in that part of town.

Twin Bayous was built from the Twinbrook map, which shipped with The Sims 3: Ambitions, but this custom world does not look at all like Twinbrook.

Twin Bayous v.4 is a modification of Twin Bayous I . It will NOT replace Twin Bayous I, if that world is already installed.

“The moonlight on the bayou, a creole tune that fills the air,
I dream about magnolias in bloom, and I’m wishin’ that I was there.”

The town is unpopulated – you will need to BYOS (Bring Your Own Sims).

Total Lots: 127
Residential: 66+ (10+ of which are empty lots)
Commercial: 70
Size: 2048X2048
