I've been on a neighborhood download kick. One of the better neighborhoods I've come across has been Victorian Bay by ruthless_kk.
If you like ruthless_kk's Victorian-style houses (which I love to pieces), then you'll like this town. It holds the same attention to detail and engaging charm that you find in her lots.
TL;DR - This town is Eye Candy. *pink sparkles*
My only complaint is that the town is really quite small. It's difficult for my Sims to find many friends (or prospective mates) -- particularly since the game's basic Story Progression driver only moves one person at a time into some of those huge lovely houses. To balance the town out, I recommend making large premade families and sticking them in various of the houses, but that still leaves the problem of "Where can grown Sim children move so that they can start their own families? Nowhere! Ack!"
I'd like to see ruthless_kk update her town for Pets and would recommend that she include something like a large boarding house (apartments) to generate more townies.
I like having a small town, since everything is a lot easier for my Sims (and myself) to find and reach, but the limited housing and subsequent limited population keep this town from being truly excellent.
Should ruthless_kk expand this town or create a slightly larger one, I will be delighted. In the meantime, I'm going to grab Twallan's Story Progression Mod and go (back) to town. :)
