Mutsu Bay Preview

This is a small sneal-peak, the pictures will be replaced maybe or changed when its time...

Once its all set ill post more and drop in a feature. Just wanted to give everyone whos interested a small

preview on what im working right now :)

This tile is straight next to Kiatkami, so it was close to take that idea and go a bit further, it will be a smaler town, less industrie, bigger castle area more nature

and i wanted to do some navy stuff this time since i never used this stuff before and there are some really cool things in the pack!

So, my progress on this tile is a bit slow, i got a new job and im quite exhausted in the evening and i only can spend a few hours

per week on building,..

still i have some new pics for everyone who is interested in this preview,...

i reworked the city seaside and took a seperate location for the navy supply, i like this solution better because the navy stuff has a quite clean setting...

i like it more chaotic close to the city,..

the castle area is about twice as big as shown here, i keep the rest till release :P

i like the reworked stuff better, more chaotic!

image.jpg

image.jpg

image.jpg

the new navy supply base... the piers, patrolboats, uboats and the helicopter carrier are from sc4devotion, the destroyers are

from hide&seek...

hope i could quicken your appetite :D

see you soon,

your Lance :)

Here is the river that turns to a city channal, its my first real river, so dont be too harsh :)

Now come a few closeups of other riverspots

Ok, what to say, its some pics of the farming area arround,.... the fields hug the small valleys between the tops of the mountains,

i tried o make it look cool :D

Thats it for today, and for Kitakami, i think i showed you all areas of interest, combined with the old contend below it gives a pretty compleete overview

as you can see on the topdown image.

I hope you enjoyed, i at least had a lot of fun crating this city, also by its diversity and some stuff i never did before,

like that camping stuff, the beach and the river, the lighthouse and so on.

So, thanks for watching, you may comment again if you feel like,... have fun,...

Myogi Outskirts

Finaly, the city is done.

I decided to merge the 2 posts and move the mosaic of the downtown over here, that way this single post will give a full overview, i like that more than haveing it splitted in 2 posts.

People who know the downtown mosaic already can simply scroll down :)

so, here we go:

Harbour District

As promised,

here is the first entry, the Harbour District.

This district is Located directly south of the Capital (im still working on it, but its huge :P )

As the name says, the focus here is on the coast and on the harbour specialy, but has a straight connection to the city, so its basicaly the south of the capital.

Beside the Harbour it has plenty of other contend aswell, but why should i discribe when i better can show :)

so, here we go:

5.jpg

5-2.jpg

piers,

4.jpg

and more piers :)

2-2.jpg

2-1.jpg

fill meh up!

As promised, this district has more to offer, here a closeup of one of my favorites so far:

3.jpg

2.jpg

1.jpg

oh dude, i hope you like it too :D

Its a place where the rents are cheap and manny young and creative people like artists and students move to. They are expirimenting with alternative ways of urban life.

You find nightclubs, small shops and streetmmarkets here.

The major has a eye on this area due to few people living outof the law there. Also many investors are intrested in this quarter and there is always the danger of segregation and gentrification here!

12.jpg

eastern suburb...

13.jpg

western suburb...

...and a shot from the center.

Now a few topdowns to give you a impression of the size and struccture:

Thats it for today, i hope you had some fun.

Thanks everyone for watching!!

Announcement

Hey guys,

This is just a quick and boring announcement of my new journal.

I decidet to open a new journal because i will share developeing a region in this and following entries.

All random stuff or funpost will be uploaded to my old journal, this will be stricktly used for this project.

As playground i picked the Fuji region from drunkapple (avaliable here on the STEX),

it is a really awesome region with a huge variety of terrain, coastal, mountains and flats, its really huge aswell and i simply like it very much :D

The setting will be somewhat japanese, its my favorite buildingstyle so you know what you can expect.

I will try to bring some different settings by useing the terrain, doing small, medium and huge cities,

you also can expect nature, traffic-networks, airports, parks (though i still have problems useing the real-highways, hope i will improve with the new NAM :P )

i will try to post frequently new updates and i hope you wont get bored :)

thanks for your interest, i have the first pictures in the pipeline.
