Myrtos Beach, Greece
Please view the first comment to see it in full resolution!
Located on the island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea, few beaches across the globe can compare to Greece's breathtaking Myrtos Beach. Due to it's remote and rugged location, the beach is completely inaccessible by foot - the only way to reach it is to traverse your way down a series of steep hairpin curves. Once you make it there however, you'll be rewarded greatly with pristine, warm Mediterranean waters, perfectly soft white sand, and of course, incredible views. There's plenty to do as well - surfboarding, windsailing, boating, or you can just soak up the sun if you wish - why don't you come visit today?

There are problems with the Maxis Beach and FRV Ski Resort.
The first, beach. The Beach textures don't show up at all- literally, either it shows up as dark bricks, or not at all. And only the sand portion too... How do you fix this?
Meanwhile, the FRV Ski Resort seems to be broken- it won't modify it's shape to the terrain, as it should... how do I fix this effect

Crashing waves, custom water texture, custom beach texture, fog/mist, boat reflections, boat ripples, and the usual stuff that I include in nearly all of my pictures (which includes finding a suitable filter, faded black borders, slight tilt shift, editing some of the color values to make them "pop", and then varying levels of saturation, glow, and sharpening)
From my "South Pacific" entry in my CJ, True Earth:
"...After getting off our cruise ship, we make our way across Easter Island to Anakena Beach. Anakena is one of two beaches that Easter Island has to offer - the rest of the island is quite rocky and barren, making it a popular tourist destination. We're surrounded by wild horses, endless palm trees, and the sound of crashing waves once we get to the beach, and Moai statues face inwards towards the island to greet us once we get there. The Rapa Nui people purposely placed the Moai facing inland while they were being constructed some 600-800 years ago - to show that they were protecting and honoring the people of Easter Island. The mysterious Moai statues offer more questions than answers: how were they built, how were they set up, and how did the Rapa Nui people move the statues across the island? No one really knows for certain, so we just sit back and admire their greatness. After checking out the Moai, we spend the rest of our day lounging around in our inner tubes, taking in the natural beauty of the island - it's truly a one of a kind destination."

Every last building and object was carefully analyzed to find the most suitable SC4 replacement.
All of the textures were created from scratch to match those of the actual plaza itself.
