    Please Note:  As explained here, due to limitations in the Gallery software, some Challenge submissions may include a larger version of the same image (e.g. for mosaics).
    Before voting, please check in the description and comments section to see if the author has posted one of these. However, it should not be a disadvantage if an author just has the required Gallery image.

Lakota Island Eruption - 298 A.D.

Atlantica region is a beautiful place where the bustling City of San Reina resides. Warm climate, beautiful beaches sit on a lush and fertile regional area. Various islands surround the region, include the biggest one of them all - Lakota Island. But Lakota was no ordinary island; reaching high into the sky, three distinct and prominent volcanic cones existed. On the far left was the biggest - Lakota; directly across it towards the right was the second biggest cone - Scethy. South of Scethy was the smallest of the three cones - Niaru. All three were fed by one singular reservoir of magma, making all three on Lakota island part of one massive volcano.

The island had a violent past, producing destructive volcanic events every few hundred to thousands of years. It wasn't until 298 A.D. however, that Lakota produced it's most violent event. During the summer months of that year, the volcano came to life with catastrophic force, blasting volcanic material high into the atmosphere from all three cones. The eruption lasted for more than six days, blanketing the entire region into complete darkness.

----------------------------------

My City is off the view towards the southwest of the volcano. :) This is a series of images based on Lakota's event in 298 A.D. Look for the other images to see the aftermath.

      It's the year 1151, a group of monks are working on the Fall harvest. Recently picked grapes are being brought in to be pressed 10 or 20 toes at a time.

      My submission for the ancient civilization challenge: an overview of the hamlet of An Fhianait. Located on the west coast of Ireland, it features a small church and a handful of cottages around the early medieval age (800-1100 AD). Despite the sea spray from the waves crashing on nearby cliffs, it's a sunny day. The cows and sheep are out and men are hard at work. Rye fields – a crop that grows readily in Ireland's cool climate – wait to be harvested. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a collection of menhirs, or standing stones, seem to glow in the sun. The villagers have since converted to Catholicism but the megalith serves as a reminder of the pagan beliefs of the Gaelic people in centuries past.

      A section of the Great Wall of China, freshly built during the Han dynasty (206 B.C. - 220 A.D.). This picture offers a glimpse into the past, as much of the wall has fallen into disrepair and the pagodas are long gone.
      ---
      Also, these are all in game models. Models were imported into 3dsmax, rendered, and placed onto either overhanging lots (wall sections) or into an MMP (pagodas).
      Pagodas can be downloaded here and Great Wall sections downloaded here (this is just one example of his work, there's plenty more.)

      Ancient Civilizations
      Build a city scene from a previous era
      Season 3 - Challenge #14 - Monthly (44 days)
      Thanks to @Mymyjp for the challenge idea.
       
      Over time, there have been many prominent civilizations. From the Greeks to the Romans and everything in between, each period has been unique. Not only changing society, but leaving behind defining buildings, monuments and structures. Some of these are now inhabitable, while others have been restored as heritage sites for all to witness and relive today in the 21st century.
      However, for this challenge, we're going back in time, long before drones, smartphones and the internet.
      In its former glory, we'd like you to create and showcase a scene from an ancient civilization, all those years ago.
      Like with the previous Monthly challenge, we welcome up to 3 submissions. These can be from the same scene presenting a different angle, or a completely different location/period.
      You may base your image(s) on any past civilization, and the goal should be to match the authenticity of this bygone era. What were the traditions and ways of life? Maybe do some research into the chosen civilization. It doesn't have to be a perfect recreation either visually or geographically, but try to capture the mood and atmosphere during this time. Be inventive! Also while not required, we actively encourage the use of image editing. Even something simple like changing the colour balance has a big impact on the overall mood.
      There are limitations in available BATs/lots from these ages, so creativity will obviously play a key role here. Also image(s) don't necessarily have to be totally accurate. Realism and detail always helps, but a big part is to visually produce an image that is overall unique and interesting.
       
      See the Possible Ideas section below for a few examples.
       
      This is a  Monthly  challenge running for 44 days.
       
      Submission Requirements
      The submitted image(s) must be based on a time period in ancient history (view timeline).
        You may use any city-building game -- including SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines, SimCity (2013), and CitiesXL / XXL.
         You may submit a maximum of 3 images into the challenge album. 
      a. All your entered images will be eligible for voting, however only your highest rated image will be used in the final ranking.
      So basically there are 3 opportunities to gain a place in the results, with no downside to submitting more than one.

      b. In the event of image(s) having an identical rating and votes, the earlier submitted image will be selected.

      For each submission, you may link a larger version in the description, or post inside the comments section. Please see this post for clarification.
       
      For the purpose of voting, please check a full title & description are included on your image(s).
