Mightygoose: Oh how i love that picture, its sooooooooo good.

Huntingfire: Nice docking area, the only suggestion is to level the street so that it matches the parking lots and makes the whole area a bit more neat and realistic.

Here is one of the lake and residental area's.

Wow, Daan, I'd like to know your method for achieving such a consistent look; are you using a Maxis building suppression mod, or do you just keep bulldozing unwanted types until you get what you're looking for?  Obviously it involves a carefully selected set of plugins. I'd love to put together such a consistent look, it reminds me of how easy that was with SC2K.

@ zurrabear: thanks very much! No, I am not using a suppression mod (I might download it though). I just bulldoze anything I don't like and when it takes to long for something to grow I do like I just plop a building. The above city was largely plopped though, for several reasons: it contains a lot of landmarks (the churches, palaces etc), a lot of diagonals and I just wanted everything to fit nicely together. It also takes a lot of custom content and time....... Thanks again.

Well, it's really beautiful--I'd love to see some close-ups.

Ah, of course.  And I am humbled at your creativity and hard work.  And your amazing collection of diagonal buildings!

@Daan300: Your cities look stunning! It's no secret that I'm very inspired by your W2W building style. Could you please give me some hints on where to find W2W diagonals? I have some by Porkissimo and Ferox, but you seem to have found a lot more of them..! Anyway, marvellous work.

@dimipol006: Wow, your beaches are flawless!  I never have quite gotten the hang of doing beaches. 

@computerguy890100:  Very nice.  I didn't realize you could use Peg's boardwalk lots with plopped water, I thought they only worked with game water.  Are those OWW or OWW2 lots?

Really nice, Moonraker--I like the simplicity of the image (a quality which usually denotes greater realism, to me).
