I was recently challenged by Robodl95 at Living Sims to create a beach - no details other than that just "I challenge you to create a beach"... I originally attempted to use the large beach at the front of Sunset Valley, I forget it's name - but after coming close to head butting my keyboard and smashing my monitor and developing a nervous twitch in my left eye that could only be cured by eating copious amounts of chocolate - I switched to Recurve Strand, one of the smaller beaches in SV. Even then, I demolished it at least three times - until I built the beach huts, after that it all came along fairly smoothly.
It's named Whitsands Bay after a local beach here in Cornwall, It's not been misspelt by me - but instead, many, many moons ago - the locals dropped the *e* from the *white* part of the name - I assume out of laziness. You may recognise a couple of the pictures, one from my Intro and the other I used to create my banner. I loved building this, once I got into it - and happily, was asked by friends to share it. It has a fairly hefty custom content list so it took me a while to get round to it. You'll find a link to the download at the bottom of this page. I hope you like it.
