Hello guys!

As said previously, even though I decided to give up with Olsènes, I promised to post some unfinished pictures. I was thinking that those parts of the city, even if they look like crap, were still deserving to be featured on an update. I also thought this would interest some of you to see how the city was planned.

Thus, I will explain here neighbourhood by neighbourhood what I was planning to do.

ps: please don't mind the bad quality, as I said it's unfinished work *;)

19. OLSENES - UNFINISHED STUFF

1. Central Station and its surroundings

As shown on the 'work in progress' thread, the central station was formerly a passing station, so I didn't like it. I built this Orsay station instead, which I think is one of the best station ever made for this game.

Normally, stations surroundings are often crappy neighbourhoods but here I wanted something different. I wanted a prestigious station surrounded by nice looking surroundings. It's why I built the 'de Ligne Boulevard' a tree-lined avenue with the tramway that ends with the 'Belmont park". I know I don't build enough park in my cities so I wanted a little bit of greenery in the city centre.

I also built an Haussmannian neighbourhood next to the station, called 'Litlle Paris'. Rents are obviously high there. Unfortunately, after trying to finish it and being unable to save each time, I gave up.

1477700438-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-04-30

1477741776-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-04-17

On the west side of the station is located the CBD with one railway track going through it. Two other tracks were crossing the river to the south. Then, on the east was supposed to be build some railyards and some train depots next to the tracks. Between the tracks and the river, some low health houses, to make some contrast in comparison with the showy buildings of the CBD.

1477741782-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-04-00

2. Upper city

This is the upper part of the old city. In the middle was supposed to be the 'Place d'Arme', an important square and transport hub with several tram and metro lines.

1477594810-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-05-24

There was also supposed to be another important station next to that neighbourhood, just next to an important church.

1477594810-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-05-35

1477606123-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-05-55

3. Herbinster

Nothing special here. It was supposed to be the kind of neighbourhood that grown just outside the city walls before they were removed. It's then a mix of offices and apartments.

1477591121-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-07-07

The neighbourhood is separated from more suburban areas by an urban tree-lined highway, as you can see on the bottom of the next picture. There were supposed to be the city university there, some commie blocks ans some healthy houses on a hill.

1477591118-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-07-17

1477591122-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-06-44

1477591122-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-06-25

4. CBD

For once, I was 100% happy with my work here.

At first, I didn't plan to build huge skyscrapers in the city but then I changed my mind. For me, they're a way to add some verticality and some modernity into my w2w European cities. I was really proud of that CBD because I thought (and still think) I found here the best combination of buildings who all look great together.  It's also not too much and enough at the same time.

1477586543-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-08-53

5. Etale & Glanes

Here is Etale and Glanes neighbourhoods. The lowest part of Etale is located on the extreme left of the following pictures. There are some buildings from the CBD there. I also added a tramway line running in the middle and a bridge connecting it with the old city. I still had to change some w2w buildings.

Just on the right, below the stadium is located 'Upper Etale'. It was supposed to be built around a square with a small church and a museum. You can also see the railway and the motorway going below the hill with a tunnel. Even though I liked that idea, I was not really satisfied on how both the railway and highway were made on the top of the picture. I indeed didn't like the connection between the two railway lines and the fact it was not possible to make a more curvy motorway.

Finally, on the left: Glanes. This was supposed to be a low residential neighbourhood.

1477441767-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-09-47

1477441761-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-10-03

A bit of Hollogne on the left:

1477441761-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-10-45

6. Mazy-Notre-Dame & Avenue Louise

I've already shown this neighbourhoods with some pictures. That district was supposed to be divided by the 'Avenue Louise', a prestigious avenue between the city centre and the suburbs. This was inspired by the eponymous avenue in Brussels, an avenue surrounded by offices and healthy housing which has become an open sky motorway due to its traffic and the way it was built.

1477440986-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-11-14

1477440981-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-11-26

1477440989-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-11-57

The avenue was supposed to end with a palace surrounded by a healthy neighbourhood, as well as some of the tram lines running in the middle of the avenue.

1477440968-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-12-03

1477440982-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-12-11

On the left was also planned an important train station.

1477440994-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-13-21

1477440983-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-13-49

7. Yvoir & Mariefontaine

Yvoir (on top of the river) and Mariefontaine (on the bottom) were supposed to be the most industrial neighbourhoods of the city. As you can see on the pictures, there were already some factories built there.

The idea here was to mix industry and low health residential areas like in other industrial European cities (the examples here were Liège or Charleroi). The next picture show that idea: some rail tracks with warehouses, some empty lots, industry next to buildings and some supermarkets replacing closed factories. I also added the Grand Moulins building (the white one on the right) as a symbol of renewal and conversion.

On the other bank, the motorway was supposed to run through the area on an ugly bridge above the industries.

1477439847-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-14-26

1477440802-simcity-4-2016-10-25-03-15-03

8. Global views

And we finish here with 4 global views of the city:

@Akallan Merci beaucoup *;)

@kschmidt Thank you too *:) Yeah right, some of the small Scandinavian houses could make thing of Copenhagen

@Wallibuk Thank you too! Amsterdam or Bruges, it's just for the canal idea. But you're right, with those buildings from my plugin folder, it looks more like Stockholm *:)

@Takingyouthere Thank you! i indeed spend a lot of time trying to find the best place for each building.

@slickbg56 Thank you for those kind words!

@kelistmac Thank you my friend! My inspiration comes from your previous work on Bassen, it always amazed me! The sidewalk is a personalized one. I just took a random texture on google image *:D

Alijstar - Intro

Hello guys,

I stopped playing on Olsènes, the city crashing all the time, which is a nightmare. I still plan to post some unfinished stuffs in a near future though.

So, I worked on a new city when I had the time during the holidays: Alijstar. The city is inspired by Bruges, Amsterdam and Berlin with my little personal touch. So yeah, water will be everywhere.

Here are the first pictures:

18. ALIJSTAR - INTRODUCTION

1. You already know that one ;)

1473011861-alijstar1-1.jpg

2. The 'Liberty Square'. More details next time!

1473011878-alijstar1-2.jpg

3. The city is known for its churches...

1473011875-alijstar1-3.jpg

4. The most impressive one: the Cathedral

1473011880-alijstar1-4.jpg

5. And one small mosaic for the end :)

1473011930-alijstar1-5.jpg

That's enough for the moment, I hope you enjoyed it! More pictures soon ;)

Hello everyone!

Simply a little preview today:

Stay tuned! ;)

 

- REPLIES -

@tariely Thank you! I also love those river banks. The municipality wanted to make them a wandering place, it's why there is no parking. You can park on the other side of the river though. I also like those metro station with their modern look in the middle of a 'classic' neighbourhood.

@TekindusT Thanks a lot!

@kschmidt You're welcome, thank you! The green GLR is part of the NAM, it's just below the avenue-GLR puzzle pieces in the menu. For the elevated station, it's a minor train line, it's why there is only one track.

@gviper Thank you!

@Lord Branham Thank you too! So, the buildings here (tell me if it's not the good ones):

@philforhockey51 Thank you! Luckily, the prop pox did'nt affect this part of the city (yet...)

Thank you too @jakis!

@michae95l Thank you too!

@kingofsimcity Thanks a lot!

@raynev1 Thanks for those kind words!

@takemethere Thank you! The city is like 50% plopped, 50% growed. Most of the time, I let the city grow, then I plop some buildings (especially the corner ones which are a nightmare if you just let them grow). Since you talk about it, my plugins folder has a size of 5.33 GB. And yes, it's a lot of patience, sometimes too much :lol:

@tariely You know it's your second comment here ? :P I'm not sure this 'historical" thing actually works. I'm quite sceptical about it since the game sometimes doesn't respect it. I don't know for the prop pox. It just happened like that... I've read a lot about it since then and I think maybe we'll never unterstand its real causes.

@tankmank Thank you! I will maybe surprise you, but I don't use the LE. I don't have time for that and its even more bugged that the game itself... I indeed not only replaced the road and street textures but also buildings ground textures. It also explains why I built the cathedral on that hill because I did'nt replaced the pavement that surrounds it.

Olsènes - Lower City

Hello everyone!

First of all, maybe some of you already know it, I have a bad news: the city is pox poxed. But anyway, I decided to still play the city and show you pictures until i'm done with it.

So, here we are:

17. OLSENES - LOWER CITY

Today, I show you the lower part of the city centre, just next to the Högne river.

1. Let's begin our tour with the Sainte-Catherine Square and the eponym church just next to the river. 1459953059-26-2.jpg

2. It's here that was built the first bridge - the Pont Vieux (Old Bridge) - between Olsènes and Hollogne. Since it was the only bridge crossing the river during centuries in the region, the city became an important commercial crossroad. 1459953069-26-1.jpg

3. 1459953367-26-5.jpg

4.1459953813-26-4.jpg

5. The square is still an important transport hub. From there, you can easily reach all the city's neighbourhoods with public transport. For instance, you can take the tramway - like many tourists - to the Grand' Place or the Cathedral... 1459953507-26-6.jpg

6. 1459953734-26-10.jpg

7. ... or take the subway to the Opera and the de Ligne Boulevard. 1459953824-26-7.jpg

8. 1459953061-26-3.jpg

9. If you take the tramway to the south, you'll find the city's business district. Here, skyscrapers have replaced the old houses. I'll post more of this neighbourhood in an incoming update. 1459953803-26-12.jpg

10. 1459953641-26-13.jpg


11. More global views 1459953388-26-8.jpg

12. 1459953851-26-9.jpg

13. Let's finish with one last mocaic: between the city most famous landmark - the Cathedral - and the CBD. 1459953866-26-11.jpg

Thank you for viewing!

Next updates will be about the central station, the CBD and the Belmont Garden ;)

@Ln X Thank you! Here for the sairs :)

@MushyMushy Thank you too! I'm really amazed by the possibilities offered by those Paris walls. For the BATs: the building here and I can't find the other one sorry. It's called "geoatcorner" ingame and in the plugin folder if that can help you.

@raynev1 A huge thanks too!

@kingofsimcity Thank you! I really love those small parkings with those awesome trees. It gave me other ideas of avenue like that.

@takemethere Thank you! Here we are! More pictures next time :)

@Belfastsocrates Thank you too! Those walls and those little parking lots are amazing :yes:

@MilitantRadical Hahaha, thank you too!

@kelistmac Thank you too my friend!

@tankmank Thanks a lot!

@Urban Constanta Thanks too!

@kschmidt Thank you too! I though about Marseille Saint Charles station while building this. Here it's because the station is located on the edge of the hill and the majority of railroads in the city is built at 15 meter above the lowest city level.

@TekindusT Thanks a lot!

@Hafiz173 Thanks too! You just need to download them!

@vinlabsc3k Thank you too ;)

Hi everyone,

I made two horizontal mosaics of Charançon, so I decided to share them with you:

I began to work again on Olsènes. I decided to give the city a huge facelift, especially by changing the transport network. Here are the first pictures ;)

Well, I had also 3 mosaics but it seems I can't post it since the last ST update. I hope it will be only temporary. I will try to post them later by cutting the pictures in separate files.

Hope you enjoyed this update ;)

Limbourg - Limbourg-Gare

Tonraq, jmsepe, GoKingsGo, MilitantRadical, michae95l, Huston, gviper, Kim Sunwoo, v701 > Thank you all for your appreciated comments!

Today is time for a little update.

12. Limbourg - Limbourg-Gare

Limbourg-Gare is not the first picture that comes into mind when one thinks about Limbourg. It is indeed a busy an industrial neighbourhood, built -- like its name 'Limbourg-Station' suggests it -- around the main train station 'Limbourg-Ouest' on the other side of the river. Tourists often only stay here a few minutes to take another train, a cab or a bus to join their hotel in the historical centre. Nevertheless, this neighbourhood can also offer nice perspectives from above.

Less blah, time for the pictures!

Hi everybody,

I wanted to do something different from the last updates. I was a little bored with cities, I wanted more nature :D

So, it's the first time I use a tree controller and that I take a real look to my MMP menu.

Olsènes - Intro

feeroz123, Tonraq, Benedict, vinlabsc3k, Biff Weissglut > Thank you everybody ;)

Hi everybody,

I was a little bored with Kookart, so i began a new city: Olsènes

"Olsènes" is located in the french speaking part of the country (yes I know, any resemblance is totaly coincidental grinning-smiley-044.gif). The city is located in the river Hogne valley and began to grown with the Industrial Revolution. After a long period of crisis, the city began its reconversion in the seventies to become the financial center of the country.

Kookart - Ter IJsel (1)

Hello. I bring you some picture today. ;)

2. TER IJSEL

"Ter IJsel" is the oldest part of the town. The district is located on an island in the middle of the Arijns river, where the city was founded in 845. Nowadays, Ter IJsel has become a very touristic place. People comes to see the little streets and the old architecture, and also to taste the local life.

A little map to show you the situation:

Located in the north of the old town and surrounded by water, Merckenberg is the first neighbourhood to be build outside the city walls. Formerly a poor settlement, Merckenberg has became a prosperous neighbourhood nowadays.

Kookart Stad

Hello everybody. I started this MD on SC4D and TSC sometimes ago. So i decided to share also my pictures here.

Arinsia is a country located between the Netherlands and Germany. Kookart is the capital city since the Independence, in 1820. The city is a financial, industrial and cultural centre. Today, I will show you the old part of the city.

1. KOOKART: A little walk in the old town

One of the best way to come in the city is to take the train to the Central Station. The old station was remplaced in 2002 by a new modern station. Here, you can take the bus, the metro and the tramway to go to every part of the city.

1347572859-kookart01.jpg

1347572855-kookart02.jpg

Now, we are going to the City Hall. He was build in 1874.

1347572859-kookart03.jpg

1347572852-kookart04.jpg

We continue to the boulevard.

1347572855-kookart05.jpg

It is market day on the Saint Peter Place. A station was build in 1934 next to the Saint Peter's church. The construction of this railway line made some scars on the old city.

1347572863-kookart06.jpg

1347572883-kookart07.jpg

The Vanackere Place, on of the most animated place of the city.

1347572871-kookart08.jpg

The Parliament.

1347572875-kookart09.jpg

Saint Joseph's church.

1347572869-kookart10.jpg

1347572883-kookart11.jpg

1347572879-kookart12.jpg

Now, we are going to the high town. The atmosphere is different than in other part of the city. We can only enter by the Saint Anna's Gate

1347572880-kookart13.jpg

The Cathedral of Our Lady.

1347572882-kookart14.jpg

1347572873-kookart15.jpg

1347572867-kookart16.jpg

Saint Jean's Gate, the second acces of the high town.

1347572877-kookart17.jpg

The station Kookart - Koninglaan, wich cut the street and the Congress Column.
