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

      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).

      I have played war/strategy games for years.  Games were often said to be:
      "grog" - from the French "grognard" (Napoleon's old grumblers; the real soldiers) ... for games meaning serious stuff
      "beer and pretzels" - meaning combat comics for those of limited intellectual capacity
      So, I have seen it thrown around from time to time that CS is a "city painter"; meant as insult in the sense that it is deficient.
      Being relatively new to this genre ... what other good city builder insults are part of this hobby?
      Thanks!
