Welcome to a brand new path SparkleCity is going to take, as we construct the region from scratch on YouTube, it's time for @Haljackey to have a little competition. (Note: I only mean that light-heartedly... I do not want actual trouble over amplifying the scale of the Oak Ridges project, seen all 100 episodes, and the major cities will be modeled after that.)

 

 

 

Enjoy the viewing experience... and congrats to @CorinaMarie for achieving moderator! Also, the thumbnail is from the Metro Hamilton City journal by @mp01vic do go check that out...

Not bad for a first video. My first SC4 video was a lot worse--I didn't have a really good microphone and I didn't do a good job editing it to make it a reasonable length. I'm glad you kept yours relatively short. If you ever feel that you want to do a longer video, it's a good idea to speed it up or edit out the boring parts. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing what the interchange will end up looking like!

Great start. With the interchange, I'd recommend only sinking the highway by 7.5m, since that tends to be realistic and reduced the distance you need for the ascent/descent. Pretty much all of RHW that works with 15m also works with 7.5m, and it just looks better in my opinion. I also concur with Compdude; the length is very suitable.

Keep it up!

Looks like you need to fix the link to your video in the above post. It says "this video has been removed by the user."  

 

EDIT: Seems like your YouTube channel got deleted too. What happened?

I'm watching your video , I've got my PS3 hooked up to the big flat screen on the wall watching your video. Its nice to just put it on the TV and watch it. I don't care about the length (although that is important for being sucessful on youtube sadly). I prefer it in real time at 1x speed as its very lovely to see what you are doing. When you speed it up its harder to see  the process. Also I enjoy hearing the commentary and hearing you talk about what you are doing.  And while I will sometimes edit out stuff in my videos , in cases like this I like being able to see everything. I'd say an ideal video length would be around 20 to 24 minutes. 

 

haha , Seattle is known for being rainy haha. 

 

one thing that irks me is that for a lot of it you are playing on a far out zoom level which makes it hard to see what you are doing. I like to play on 4. really like the music you choose to put in there. Absolutely love the music in fact.  Watching your video is making me want to give the RHW another go. its been over 10 years since I've tried to use it. back then it was a very complex nightmare. It still scares me some. If SimCity 4 had an undo button that would make it much less of a nightmare. 

Please make more videos. really like them. That goes for not just @Compdude787

      Index of Modding Tutorials & Information

      In an attempt to consolidate various tutorials & info on C:S modding, this topic will serve as an index.
      Basically, please post below links to anything aspiring modders may find useful!

      For example:
      Links to custom content related tutorials you've created in another topic (e.g. in this forum). Videos on YouTube, or similar video sites. Helpful links to online information / guides (e.g. Wiki articles, making best use of certain software features).  
      Note: If you wish to post a tutorial / share some personal advice, it's preferred to do so inside a new topic here in the modding forum. This way it keeps discussion contained inside individual topics, making each subject easier to follow, and allows the author to respond to comments.

      Are there any games where you can be an totalitarian dictator? And Controlling everything and everyone?  Yes i know Tropico is such an game, but you are only an dictator of a small Island, not really a powerful ruler. Are there any games besides the tropico series where you can be an cruel dictator? Any games where you can rule over more than just a tiny Island as a dictator?
