Simtropolis Challenges - Season 3 Logo

City Showcase - 
Show the best scenes from your city - 
Season 3 - Challenge #23 - Monthly (47 days) - 

Results Announced Here!

Thanks to @MushyMushy for the challenge idea.

 

The previous challenges have all been focused around specific themes. We've visited urban, rural and night shots, amongst waterfronts, railroads and bridges. There have been a multitude of magnificent creations from many magnanimous mayors! *:yes:

But this time, in the final Monthly challenge of the season, we're throwing the doors open, giving you freedom to present any of your finest city-building scenes.

You may enter up to 3 images you've created from your cities, towns or villages. The image(s) can be anything you'd like, not necessarily depicting high density and skyscrapers -- it could even be a more rural or desolate location. Basically anywhere big or small where your citizens reside. As usual, you may also use custom content and/or image editing to enhance the appearance. This is all about providing an empty canvas (or 3) for you to express your unique city-building creativity. *;)

 

This is a  Monthly  challenge running for a mammoth 47 days.

 

Submission Requirements

  1. The submitted image(s) must include a form of human settlement (e.g. city, town or village).
     
  2. You may use any city-building game -- including SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines, SimCity (2013), and CitiesXL / XXL.
     
  3.  You may submit a maximum of 3 images into the challenge album. These can be from the same or different locations.    *:read:

    a. All your entered images will be eligible for voting, however only your highest rated image will be used in the final ranking.
    So basically there are 3 opportunities to gain a place in the results, with no downside to submitting more than one.

    b. In the event of images having an identical rating and votes, the earlier submitted image will be selected.

    For each submission, you may link a larger version in the description, or post inside the comments section. Please see this post for clarification.
     

  4. For the purpose of voting, please check a full title & description are included on your image(s).
     
  5. Your image(s) must be created solely by yourself, without any assistance from anyone else.
     
  6. To qualify for entry, please ensure your image(s) are uploaded to the submissions category, and comply with these requirements.

 

Leaderboard Rankings  *:read:

A new leaderboard system is currently running for this season. This has been designed to incorporate all challenges, linking with each set of results.

Each place in a challenge has points on offer -- the higher you finish, the more points you gain. Then at the end of the season, prizes will be given out to the top 10 in the final standings, with the winner being crowned the Grand Champion! *:ducky:

This  Monthly  challenge is eligible for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.

 

Full details and the current standings can be viewed in the following topic:

 

The winners will be the top 3 ranked images after a 10 day voting period. Reputation prizes will be awarded based on the number of entries, and the overall average rating. See this topic for more info.

For this  Monthly  challenge, rep prizes will be given for the top 5 placed entries, along with points for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.


Good luck everyone, let's finish Season 3 in grand style. *:thumb:

This is due to current site bandwidth limitations.

Don't worry, feel free to downscale (resize) your images, then post the full resolution in the description or comments section. ;)

@Abrams124 You'll have to save it as a lower res file and then link to the higher resolution image. I had the issue with a 30mb mosaic. :lol:

Edit: Cyclone just nipped and stole my thunder!

"The harbour city in all its glory."

You may have seen my Sydney recreation before in my CJ True Earth here, but you've never seen it before like this. I felt like a panorama was the best way to truly capture this amazing city for this final challenge. This panorama showcases the entire center of the city from Hyde Park on the far left to North Sydney on the right, just past the iconic Harbour Bridge. To top things off, I decided to showcase the city in a sunset setting - while Sydney is amazing at all times of the day, I felt like there was just something truly magical about seeing Sydney in the sunset.
