Looking great! And I agree with Feinbold, why not release the both :)

Ty for the compliments! Both have been released now. I wasn't sure if it made sense to do that or if there would only be interest in one of them. Time to see which one gets most subscribers. :P

I haven't settled on my next project. Might finish off some smaller requests and leave the bigger plans for after the holidays. :)

I just released a small water pumping station as the first of a few pumping stations I have planned. I plan on doing two larger ones that pump alot more water, so we won't need 10+ water pumps for large cities. ;)

Glad to hear that. :) I was kinda surprised no one had done something like this. We have lots of good looking water towers on the workshop and some pumps to place along the coast, but not really this.

As mentioned I plan on making some more of these pumping stations and the medium sized one is coming along nicely. Texture isn't done at all yet, but I thought I'd give you a peak at the building itself. :)

Nice, I really like these small service assets. Not every city or village has major complexes for water-, garbage- or power-related infrastructure, so these assets are perfect for keeping it a bit more local and to scale.
One bit of (constructive) criticism: maybe you could weather the textures a bit more, to give them a slightly more grimy look?

Looking good already. Yesterday I acquired your water purification set. I like it a lot and I am sure it will be used in a lot of my cities. Thank you for sharing your work.

I was almost done with the medium water pumping station. Just finishing off the LOD when my power supply died. Sadly most parts went with it, but luckily my hard drive was alright, so I have all my work (and a backup just in case). But as my laptop is in no way capable of running CS it'll be a while before I can finish off my things. :(  Right now I'm just happy I didn't lose all my models and texture files.

I'm sorry to hear that. I've been there. It's good that your HDD survived at least. I hope you can get back in business soon.

Wow seems like power supplies are really killing our systems. :/ MrMaison had a similar issue a while back. Good to see your drives okay...

Sorry to hear that. :( 

Good thing about the HDD and backups. Dead power supplies scare me cause they can fry so much other stuff depending on how they fail.

Oh no! Power supplies are really a difficult topic. Good luck with getting everything up and running again.

Which reminds me that I have to make a backup, as I plan to move my system to a new SSD. If you don't hear anything from me anymore, you know what happened.

Damn, sorry to hear that. My power supply went a few months back and took my MB and CPU with it - luckily my brand new GTX970 wasn't affected. Wound up spending $1100 on new parts so the rebuild became a substantial upgrade over my old machine - silver linings, and all that.

Ty for the kind words guys. My new parts are on their way, but I doubt I'll have them before New Year. It turns out my laptop can run blender - it just takes 5-10 sec to save. :P But at least I can model a bit while waiting. Texturing will have to wait though, but I'm not bored crazy and can still make some progress with my models. :) 

LOD for the medium pumping station is done, so that is pretty much done. I've started work on the large one, which is coming along nicely. :)

Same for me @Ryno917 - might as well upgrade it now I'm buying parts. At least I won't have to worry about upgrades again for a while. Can't wait to see how much faster Skylines will load. :P

The large pumping station is getting there. I think I'm more or less finished with the model - though I usually make tweaks when I start texturing. :P  I've got a little screenshot from Blender for you guys. Any feedback for it is welcome. Oh, and it's about 4x5 squares in CS.

Looking good. I'm anxious to see how it turns out. I like really nice looking utility buildings. I know they're technically 'boring' but I like basic infrastructure. it's part of what adds realism and character to a city, and variety in the infrastructure can only add to that.

Looks like a least a couple more days before I have a good pc again. :(  Today I am gonna try and see if I can get some texturing done even if my laptop doesn't have all the tools I usually do. I really want to see my large pumping station with some textures. :P I also got to steal my bf's pc today and test some things in game and grabbed a few shots of the medium pumping station with texture on. I'll have to tweak the illumination/specular texture as the pipes look like they shine a bit at night, but otherwise it's close to done. :)

It will function much like a water tower (but much more efficient), but it will need road access and a few workers. Same with the large one.

Also, when these pumping stations are done I'll most likely go back to some industry - forestry or farming. I've played around with some ideas for both, so I have yet to decide which one I'll do first. :P

The medium pumping station model is done. Now I need to put it in the game, decorate, tweek stats and then test it out. If everything goes as it should I'll have my new pc next week, so not long to go anymore (yay!). In the mean time I've done some texturing of the large pumping station - it still needs a bit of grunge, but I don't have my good files for that atm. The normal map and LOD textures aren't done yet, but I'll prob have them done before I get my pc anyways. :) So hopefully next week I'll have two pumping stations done ^^

That's looking pretty great. I'm all set for water assets, but I think I'll sub it just to have it on the map somewhere. It just looks too good not to. I really like basic infrastructure buildings that look like real buildings of that type, especially if they look 'lived in' so to speak.

Great job.

Looking really good!. Great modeling and I like your texture work. Just wondering about the light leaks under the eves of the pumping stations.  I will subscribe when they go live.

Tyvm ^^

About the light leaks I can't seem to find what causes it. There's no hole in the model, so it shouldn't be there at all. It's barely visible outside of the asset editor and only happens at some angles, so I have left it. If anyone has any ideas as to how to fix it I'd love to know :)

@Avanya - you may have some flipped normals on the mesh.  Have you checked to make sure all the normals are facing the correct way (outwards)?

Yep, they're all flipped the right way. Checked that and if there were holes when I first noticed it.

Woop I'm finally back on a real pc. :D And with that I've released my medium water pumping station - hope you enjoy! Also any feedback on the stats would be lovely. I've roughly just given it the water tower stats x2.5, but I'm not sure if it's too expensive/pumps too little water.

The large one is coming along nicely. I'm pretty much done with the main model (no pic today though) and just need to sort the LOD textures for it. So it shouldn't be too long before you'll see it released. Unless I get carried away with actually playing the game. :P

      Here's my first city in Cities: Skylines, River Town. It's more of an experimental city to get a grasp of what the game can do, so I don't have a definite plan.
      My first video is just me working on a highway interchange and setting up the basics of the city. The next video will certainly have a lot more going on.

      Hi everybody,
      I came so far to provide some city journal on my latest one.
      The city is called Koszałkowo (read: Koshaukovo).
      Current populaton reaches slowly 300.000 cims. It has 6 regional train lines, with two large stations, one tram line on the island (in the north) and bunch of bus lines. There are two airports - KAX International (KAX), the smaller one, and the La Luna International Airport (LLI) the big one. Koszałkowo has also big port on smaller island in the middle.
      The city is located on three land parts, with big Manhattan-style island in the middle. At the west there is co called Old Koszałkowo, which is core part of the old city. At the east there is currently only an airport and pretty large industrial zone. There is still a lot of place there, especially on the hill, but this is left for future...
      Additionally to the city itself, there are 4 smaller towns/villages:
      - Big Boobs Beach ;-) in south-west, which is mostly for recreation,
      - Fondenong (former timberland)
      - Chestnut Heights and Moore Park (farming villages)
      In many cases I still keep the original names provided automatically by the game, even I do not like them all. But I focus more on developing the city first. So names are subject to change.
      First the map (created by CSLMapView)... Screenshots will follow soon.
      For the technical: I have 16GB of RAM and i5 6500 processor, Nvidia 960 GTX. The city runs with 68 mods and ca. 3000 custom assets (not all of them are actually used, but at these numbers it is now very hard to make a selection).

      Hello everyone. This will be my custom content showcase and workshop thread. In all the years I been a member here, I never uploaded any content but enjoying great work by other members. I take this opportunity to say Thank You to all content makers for making our city building experience so enjoyable. I feel that making content is overdue for me and I want to give back to the community. I have some buildings and trees that I will be showing in upcoming updates to this thread. I will also be asking for advice and help.

      No dependencies. All lots are 5x5 ploppables in the Reward menu, available at the start, and are network and transit enabled (capacity: 100)  Maxis lighting.
      This project is inspired by the first version of SimCity (Classic) now called 'Micropolis' developed in the 1980's and released as open source. The 7th preview is an image of a session of playing the Java version of Micropolis that is freely downloadable from github.com.
      In Micropolis there are only three same-sized squares for RCI zoning. I've used the reward system in SC4 to re-lot all 6 of the large commercial office buildings, 2 of the largest high-wealth residential, 1 of the largest high-tech industrial buildings, and 1 agricultural building. All the lots are the same area size like in Micropolis.
      The queries are the same queries used for the buildings as grown in the game.  The associated reward will only be indicated in the reward menu as the item is selected and plopped.
      The lots contain code for both the reward and the replacement building so apparently the lots provide the benefits of the reward as well as the operation of the building. The intent of making these lots is providing access to the buildings so the reward function was not evaluated, but the queries do report capacity usage for the replaced building --no 'goofy stat' for the reward. 
      NOTE:  Residential ploppables may indicate some usage initially, but will quickly degrade to Abandoned Due to Commute Time so are not functional as Residential. 
      Previews of Buildings Featuring Terrain Mods (see Preview and Install.html in zip file)
      Terrain Resources Listed in: Cori's Terrain Shoppe
      Descriptions of the 10, 5x5 Large RCI and 1 Civic Building are included in the zip file:
      The buildings appear in the reward menu with a unique menu icon, the building and reward names.  The Opera House, Farmer's Market and Tourist Trap rewards also appear in the Parks menu.
      • Van Prooijen Trading: Commercial: Convention Center
      • Ong Condos: Residential: Major Art Museum
      • Hurt Enterprise Headquarters: Commercial: Tourist Trap
      • Hogan, Wallace, and White Insurance: Commercial: Resort Hotel
      • Cahalane Communications: Civic: Bureau of Bureaucracy
      • Lind Entertainment: Commercial: Stock Exchange
      • Byall Tower : Residential: Opera House
      • Tubing Facility: Industrial: Advanced Research Center
      • Alvin's Acres: Agriculture: Farmer's Market
      • Pedriana Pharmaceuticals: Commercial: TV Station
      A stage 8 CO§§§ building in the Chicago tileset.  Capacity: 7,103
      ______________________________________________________
      I've given this lot project the name MicroProject and made a logo for identifying the lots in the Reward and Parks menus. Each lot appears near the original reward, with a building icon and the logo overlay. The original reward is not replaced. The re-lots are available at the start of a new city.
