Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Welcome to Acorn Bend!
Updated: September 15th 09 - Fixed issue with the decorated version, for the 20 of you who downloaded, DL again

Check out our pamphlet!
Acorn Bend is a new town located between majestic mountains. Since the roads are often long, winding, and precariously perched among the jagged mountain sides, they are the path less traveled. Here in Acorn Bend, main means of access are via canal. This clean and clear canal is home to some of the best fishing and recreational activities, such as boating and human to marine life interactions. With the ocean only a short ride away, Acorn Bend is truly a wonderful region to start zoning and building on!

There is plenty of room for houses of all shapes and sizes. There is a low coast if you would like to try experimenting with beach lots or the water flowing technique. This are is a true modern day marvel. Stare in awe, for this once used to be a mountain! Technology...well...blew it up! Massive retaining walls were erected to hold back the sliding land, and a canal was dredged out for a way to access the other towns far out of reach.


- Decorated version requires NL or higher

Video Brochure, because watching is better than reading

I made a video for it, I like it so much. So, be sure to swing in and check it out if you have a chance. Be warned though, it is one of my most FAVORITE video game music pieces ever, it may cause you to have nostalgic moments and wanna play "Super Mario 64"
