Author Topic: Houligan's Alley - Fine Food & Drinks  (Read 15689 times)

Houligans Alley (FSM) was originally designed as a string of buildings on a single street.  I have always liked this special group of structures, but wanted something different from the standard arrangement that could also fit into the slope of my hillside town.  To fill this need, Jim Lucas and I teamed up to create this rearranged and modified variation that has a very different look and feel, which also incorporates the new Decker's (FOS) structure.  Thought you would appreciate seeing a few pictures of our version of Houligans Alley.

The differing levels were a good idea. Much more interesting.

Thanks John.  If viewing the photos made you hungry, then we were successful in setting the mood.  Pull up a chair and enjoy a meal.

Hi Chuck.  Thanks.  Yes, elevations make the small worlds we create far more realistic and interesting .  This build was fun for several reasons.  It not only was about creating an urban commercial center using industrial structure kits (something seldom done) and using the alley/plaza concept to create views from all structure sides (rarely if ever done), but it was also about leveraging elevations to give a tenfold increase in photo angles (not done enough).  This not only resulted in the interesting views from the roads and terraces as seen above, but also created the multiple dining levels and wonderful roofline views as seen below.  There is something new to see or a new perspective every way you look.

Thanks again,
Gregg
