Realistic recreation of the Tholos of Delphi in Greece. Once considered the center of the universe, the once great city of Delphi is now nothing more than ruins.


You can see more Greek scenes from my "Greece - Part II" update in my CJ, True Earth.

      Full size version (~4MB) of the GIF on the first comment.
       
      Please keep in mind that a time lapse animation was one of the official suggested ideas for this challenge on the forum thread.
      An animated GIF displaying my recreation of the Holy Monastery of St. Nicholas in Meteora, Greece along with some of the surrounding scenery.  Wanting to feel closer to heaven, the locals would build their monasteries high in the sky, perched precariously on the edge of sheer granite rock cliffs - truly an amazing sight to behold.
      One of the frames in this picture (fall) was originally featured in my "Greece - Part II" update in my CJ, True Earth, so for this GIF I decided to showcase Meteora in its entirety with Spring, Summer, and Winter frames as well. Each frame showcases extensive custom lotting, intricate MMPing, and custom content creation (various terrain mods created for this picture + a number of new MMPs made/modded heavily)
      -
      The first frame starts off with summer in Meteora. Predictably, this time is the most popular season for tourists to come visit Meteora. The harvest season that begins in late summer is a big attraction as well for tourists.
      The second frame displays some of Meteora's famous fall foliage. Oaks and maples among others will come alive, displaying various shades of red, orange, and yellow. This coupled with the much more comfortable temperatures makes it a great time to come visit.
      The third frame shows off Meteora blanketed under a layer of snow in the midst of a snowfall. Despite Meteora's relatively close proximity to the Ioanian and Aegean Seas, it's just high enough in the mountains (1,000-2,000 feet above sea level) to receive regular snow in the winter. Additionally, the mountains will essentially "block out" gusts from the sea, allowing for temperatures to vary wildly. For those wanting to visit Meteora in the wintertime, be prepared for frigid temperatures and constant frost.
      Before looping, the fourth and final frame shows Meteora in the spring. The cold winters often delay Springtime for a bit, but when it comes it can truly be quite beautiful. Be prepared for fog/rain showers however, a common site during this time of the year.

      For those who love ancient history, I present....SM2 Greek Temple Ruin.
      Plop Cost 12,000
      Bulldoze cost 300
      Maintenance cost 54
      You will find it in your landmark menu.
      It will give a bit of landmark effect and it requires no water or power. Perfect for those remote and exotic areas.
      No dependencies
      Simmer2.

      A good while ago, scientists discovered some ruins in a grove close to a river delta. It has been assumed since then that these ruins originated from a pre-Calidorian era (you might want to click here for more information), but, according to more recent research, these ruins might be remnants of Calidorian settlers from the early beginnings of the history of Calidores that had to abandon this place for unknown reasons, most likely an immense flood or lack of resources. Since their discovery, these ruins attract more educated Sims from all of the world, to see both the ruins and the way how nature tries to repair the damage humankind has caused by deforesting the area adjacent to the ruins.

      MilitantRadical: Thanks!
      InvaderNat: Oh, that's not really how dark 'dark nite' is. I just made it intentionally darker with PS to emphasize on the total darkness experienced on Elmere. That and I wanted to get rid of the green color of the terrain cause of course, it's a barren gray moon and I used a lush green terrain texture

      Welcome back to the Milky Way, in a time ahead of our time...




      We've now left the Aerene star system and headed for the a not so distant star system called Nesu'luun.



      In this solar system, a marginally habitable planet is situated 0.89 Astronomical Units from the star Nesu'luun. It's a world choked in Carbon Dioxide, and flooded with polluted and toxic oceans of water and significant amounts of ammonia; Kanaze. As a result of rapid industrialization by corporations putting profit first, dirty mining operations and sub-standard industrial factories are scattered all over the planet in small colonies, slowly destroying the planet and increasing it's already scorching temperatures to higher and more intense averages.




      But there is more to this scorching globe that's riddled in swampland. Besides companies and crooks dwelling on Kanaze Archaeologists, scientists and galactic historians alike have flocked to the planet to take advantage of the many still intact ruins of an ancient civilization which were mysteriously wiped off the face of Kanaze - Such ruins as the Ruins of Selutz, located only a mere hundred kilometers north of the planet's largest city and capital; Ark'bor.



      Today, we'll visit the very ruins of an ancient city with the given name, Selutz. Currently being researched and explored by a group of independent scientists, historians and archaelogists who take a prime interest in Kanaze's many millenia old ruins; ruins that have somehow endured the test of time.








      The ruins of Selutz are situated higher up on a mountain and what remains visible above the thick flora is only a tenth of what really once stood here. Although many of the researches based here speculate that the city extends further down underground, and that what is currently visible is only 5% of the entire Selutz city complex.




      But most of the people based here are still more intrigued by the temple, labeled The Sanctum of Selutz, that stands almost completely intact with no extensive damage or faults on the building. Historians after making an extensive survey of the structure believe that it stands as the city's, if not, the mysterious ancient civilization's possibly most holy symbol, being an ancient religious structure. By considering its location, there are further beliefs of the city being built around this ancient temple. As researchers get in deeper into the history and reality of Selutz, uncovering the city's hidden secrets; findings become more intriuging and peculiar.





      Thanks for viewing!
