Big Blue is a planet that is almost completely water (F-Zero wiki, http://fzero.wikia.com/wiki/Big_Blue )  On this planet, the buildings literally come out of the water.  How did I manage to do this in SimCity (2013)?  Well the answer is "Skye's Regional Freeway Mod" (Download here) , that awesome tool that fixes the Space Center Great Work Glitch (see here).  In Skye Storm’s video on youtube (here), he explains how although the regional freeway is designed to add additional entrances to the city, it also can create “rivers” (… well maybe if you want to go that route, but to me more like underwater roads).  And thus, you also have the ability to place buildings underwater.  Yes, underwater building!  So the minute I saw this one thing came to mind right away, Bug Blue from the F-Zero series (well GX more specifically).  Hope you enjoy whether or not you’re a fan of F-Zero, I think you can enjoy a city that literally grows out of the water.

 

Now, I feel that I could have done a better job if I had used project Orion in addition to Skye’s Regional Freeway, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to dive into that territory just yet.  Or perhaps with a bit more practice in underwater road-ing.  I’ll probably make another Big Blue later on.  If you’re an F-Zero fan, and you’re wondering, “Why I haven’t you made mute city?”  Well, the answer is that although I did start one, that’s a large project, and I think I might actually need project Orion to make it happen.

(This is project Orion if you’re curious)

Below are some images of Big Blue from F-Zero GX
