About this City Journal

160805035448818017.jpg

 

I present to all the new topic to replace that of R.C.D. who suffered saving of bugs: Phoenix Project. "Phoenix" because, as the legend, at his death, the bird is consumed in the flames to be reborn again and always get a little stronger. It is what I am going to do!

This project radically changes the concept in relation to the R.C.D. The goal is more to organize and plan the construction of a whole region, but to create scenes and landscapes where MMP's are most often used. These scenes are all fictitious and photos will not be modified by image software. The establishment of these scenes will mostly landscapes of Central Europe and the East. Sometimes, maybe, I will apply myself to the creation of Northern landscapes such as Scandinavia or further south to the air more "exotic"!

I do not think creating city scenes, it would take me more knowledge than I have in the modding. Instead, there will be some small villages abandoned in the middle of nowhere ... You will see for yourself, hoping that this new project you like it as much as me.

See you soon!

Hello everyone,

For a moment I did not return to the forums because I had quite a lot to do. So to come back nicely I decided to make a video before continuing my Dahammas area. It is a video related to the creation of a pond, I hope you like it! ;)

Thanks for another great tutorial. It always amazes me how your about to work so fast. I know the vidoe is sped up but what I mean is with how you switch between and move on to using different mmp's very quickly without worrying about making a mistake and going back to retouch an area. 

It's a bit like a habit, and even if there's a mistake you have to keep going because the video is spinning and I can not do too much time. Despite that, we do not see it, but I sometimes have moments of hesitation during the video. Thank you for your comment! *:)

Eréphore - Pt. II

161230074429489836.jpg

 

And here is the second part of Eréphore! I wish you all with a little bit of advance, good holidays of end of years!

 

A small village in the area, a few tourists pass by here to visit the fort and hike along the river.

161230063618810864.jpg


One of the two arms of the Thylis, The flow of the river is not very large and fertilizes not much land. Over the past thirty years, the flow of the river has further diminished due to increasingly intense farming.

161230063631890266.jpg


In the mountain of Gormios there is an ancient ruin of an ancient temple. It was destroyed by an earthquake around 500 AD and plundered intensely after that.

161230063622390642.jpg


The city center of Erephore and capital of the region, there are about 120'000 inhabitants.

161230063615655731.jpg


Upon returning to the "Blue Line", we can see the old desalination plant built some fifteen years ago and still functioning today. Due to demographic growth, in recent years, this plant is not enough and a second bigger one has been built.

Very nice mediteranien scene; mmp´s very lovely, rugged, maybe some more olive trees and vineyards and varied rock fields and potholes, italian houses set very nicely used. Desalnitation with the present drought is of vital importance. Local business in countries like italy at the coast is so busy any spot is used to the max, any where maybe less, well done !

Thank you very much pour your comment!

Eréphore - Pt. I

161011110206715669.jpg

 

The sun shines draining land in early summer, the south wind sweeps before the doors of houses. Today, the thermometer rise to 34°C on average across the country, the region of Eréphore was most affected by the heat wave, could be measured around noon a temperature of 39°C! Eréphore is one of two regions of the southernmost countries and their Mediterranean climate, the olives trees are thriving and are walking in part with the local economy behind tourism. This part of the country yet still remains very poor, people live mainly from agriculture, fishing and a few small travails often not reported to the state.

Have fun watching these images, this is only the first part of Eréphore. Indeed, the work done so far is huge and is not finished yet. I have many ideas to run for the next update always on the same topic, and I do not want to wait several weeks before a new entry (soon it's been a month that I work on this update ). I wish you all a good viewing, see you soon!

 

The "Blue Line" is the line of the oldest railway in the country, it has that name because it runs along the sea. Built during the First World War, in 1915, it was used primarily to link the north the territory to the south for the supply of the army. The end of the war, the line will operate for civilian use, and rail will grow in the country.

161011094207586509.jpg


The Thylis, a small River rises about 50 km to the west in the massive Gormios. The river is known for the motorway viaduct that crosses from east to west. Completed in 2008, it serves the Eréphore other region.

161011094211652088.jpg


The old tower, so she is appointed. This type of building built in the Middle Ages is common in the south. It was used to alert the town in case of an attack with a trumpet. At that time, there were often raids in villages.

161011094144959859.jpg


The plateau Eréphore with its abbey overlooking the semi-desert terrain, it is crossed by the National Road 7.

161011094155877839.jpg


A small village almost deserted, there are still 13 people... The houses each turn fall into ruin.

Beautiful landscapes! The abandoned village scene reminds me a bit of the landscape in Jean de Florette. You have such great command of MMP placement.

Thank you very much! :)

 

On 12/10/2016 at 10:18 AM, Takingyouthere said:

Wow are you kidding me... You've really outdid yourself this time, that is a ridiculous amount of mmp work. We need an option to give two likes or something, this certainly deserves it. And just how much free time do you have on you hands? Then again knowing how fast you work it probably didn't take as long as one would think.

Thank you very much for your comment, I'm really glad to hear it!
It took me a little time to create these five photos, Eréphore was born there about 20 days, but I have not worked on it every day. I think in total I had to make between 35 and 40 hours to get the results you see. :)

 

On 12/10/2016 at 3:26 PM, Ln X said:

OH YEAH! You have perfectly captured that semi-arid Mediterranean feel. Good job on the MMP rock placement too, that is probably the hardest part of using MMPs. I would say the last three pictures are my favourite, I just love that rocky, dry shrubland.

Thank you! Yes, rocky parts are a bit more complex to do. I had to try several samples before making a decision. I'm usually bad for this type of MMP. :P

By the way how did you get the MMPs under the bridge? Most people use MMPs that extend for more than 1 tile but yours seems so seamless. 

 

Thank you! There is no need to build particular MMP under a bridge. You just have to click below with the MMP and it's all good! ;)

Lovely work! Such a stunning use of different MMPS! :)

Would be quite good to have a list of all of the MMPs used - it's quite hard to identify the ones you don't have by their icons.

Thank you! Excuse me. I put the links of all MMPs used in this video.

Nicely done, another very useful tutorial. It amazing just how quickly you can create a scene like that. I know the video has been accelerated perhaps several times faster than normal, but it seems like that would still put the total time to create that scene at an hour or less.

Thank you for your comment! The speed of the video is x2.05. So I had about 20 minutes IRL to create this scene. :thumb:

Valley Tühbräk

160922074553944277.jpg

 

Seven days the emperor was murdered in the capital. Seven days, that the Empire is destabilized and frightened people. No one knows who the meurtrier is and for which it acts, can be an enemy of the Empire or a coup of state...

But today is another day, that of a new emperor will rule as wisely as possible. We must restore the situation, the Empire needs a strong man ...

The sun just beginning to rise as the city is already in motion, the garrison army prepares and secures down the path that the Emperor during his walk to the cathedral to take the wish. Meanwhile the lost in the countryside, the emperor prepares his speech at the castle, which is three hours on horseback from the capital. When he leaves, he will be escorted to the royal guard, his wife, his two children and other statesmen and religious. When he arrives in the capital, it will take about thirty minutes before arriving at the cathedral to finally complete the ceremony. As time passes and more people in the city is excited, there are people angry and more happy to finally have someone on the throne to regain control of the situation before things degenerate. Indeed, there has already been some revolts around the country, often small but end badly.

Finally, it is high time that the Emperor sits on the throne, it is carried by a long reign worthy of the name!

 

160927114124477344.jpg


In this city is restless, but less campaign. The Emperor does not always win the heart of the rural population, poorer it has little to the life of these people. "A man or another to the throne, it changes nothing for us! It is not they who will reap wheat.", Said an old farmer.

The cathedral, great symbol of Dahammas capital. The streets are crowded and it is difficult to move about, the army prepares the way.

160927114122577042.jpg


The Emperor should leave soon...

160927114137989794.jpg

Merci Golhbul! Non, je ne me suis pas trompé, en revanche il se peut que mon histoire soit un peu flou, je ne suis pas encore un grand conteur et je n'ai pas toujours les bons mots. Je cite Dahammas en clin d’œil à la R.C.D. simplement. :) Ce n'est donc pas une image provenant de la R.C.D., mais bel et bien une image de Tühbräk. J'espère avoir éclairci un peu ton doute. ;)

@Akallan Sori for asking... can i have all ur plugin at once.. :) i very lazzy to donwload one by one.. hehe.. :D 

Here is the link if you want to download my Plugins folder: link removed

 

On 17/09/2016 at 9:41 PM, old_desertox said:

@Akallan Wow.. You are a generous man ... God Bless You

You're welcome! All mods are in French, I translated everything, remade all the descriptions and all images of the lots. Everything is sorted by category.

The folder 1.2. not translated yet and there is still a lot of new image. I will soon (that is why it is written "à faire" EN:  "to do"). The NAM folder (3.1.) Is not touch in order to leave intact for the reading direction of folders inside of it. Folder 3.2. about the airport is not changed either. Because it contains a lot of items and they are never used much. The RCI areas (4.1. / 4.2. / 4.3. / 4.4.) Are sorted by type and wealth. Then the 5.1. and 5.2. files. are dependencies and mods that affect the gameplay.

The lots that are modified are those that can "plopper". As for the police buildings, fire, schools, monuments, etc ... The other lots ("growable") are not changed.

If anyone would have shown in 2003(the year SC4 came out) that this would be possible one day to do, I simply would have never believed it. I actually enjoyed this video greatly, I used to do a lot of things as such in the years back, but I guess You have beaten my talent.

This is simply GREAT stuff and it has waken my sense to come back to SC4 again. You are one talented creator!

Hats off !

I am happy to read your comment. SC4 is the master of city-builder, CS can not beat it, even if it is good. I can only encourage you to start SC4 and to a CJ!
Thank you! :thumb:

Höreinn

160907094600941785.jpg

 

In the far north, a territory lost through time in almost total silence and gives way to the fantastic white world: that of Höreinn! The huge territory has never been colonized, too wild and cold, it has pushed the men set foot there permanently. It is only since the late 20th century a few huts and cottages were built. The first buildings were those of came poachers hunt bear and some deer, then melting ice will still come men on land. The region still may be populated by a few hundred men in the next ten years, actually, with melting ice, some oil companies plan to drill offshore where it was impossible to reach there half a century...

Höreinn still keeps its splendor, here are some pictures to illustrate it. This is a small update, because winter and snow miss with the hot weather!

I hope you enjoy it, see you soon!

 

The largest chalet of any Höreinn! Set in the very south of the territory, he undergoes a milder climate than the rest of the territory to the north...

Lapland like setting, very cold but stil close to the sea ! Winter theme is very hard to hit, with little winter BAT replacements, a quit theme with only a few, well done !

Thank you kschmidt! Yes, the winter theme is very difficult to do, especially for plants in my opinion.

Spectacular!   Typo in the interesting intro: 'came poachers' should read 'game...'   Is the 3rd pic down supposed to be very dark or is my brightness set so low I can't see it? 

Thank you! :) In the picture, I see well. Maybe your screen dark setting?

Thank you kingofsimcity! :)

Winter's my favorite season — although I don't always get much of it where I live.  One of the most peaceful things I've done is take a brisk walk in the snow.  Everything seems so pure and hopeful.

The lodge looks like a good place to hang out by the fireplace and sip on hot chocolate or apple cider while plotting the next snow adventure.  The falling snow over that small cabin would look great on a postcard.

Nice work, Akallan!

Thank you very much! Your comment makes me happy! Winter is my favorite season, I live in Switzerland, yet even here the snow starts to become scarce (in low altitude). I then created few landscapes to remember that winter is beautiful! :wub:

Thank you Takingyouthere, and it's not finished! ;)

Creek Neliah

160907094600561555.jpg

 

Story of an inhabitant:
"Legend has it that 11th century, a small ship would be near a large creek during an autumn night. It seems that they saw a strange light shining from above, the captain ordered to land on a beach a few kilometers from this cliff. Throughout the night, the team of sailors marched through the forest. At dawn, the team finally reaches the top of the cliff, we could not see the light because of the sunrise, the marine team decides to mount camps waiting to see the famous light.

Night came, and still nothing ... The nights go, the weeks go ... But nothing, no light. Lack of resources there, the sailors began to turn back. They left the island, thinking that it was madness or the region were enchanted. No matter for them, it's time to leave!

The creek is discovered, but the mystery remains. During the late 17th century, it will Edvard Neliah, a little superstitious adventurer out to conquer the creek with settlers in search of glory and honor. At their establishment at the top of the cliff, nothing happened during nights ... Until one night, the light appears next to the village, Neliah will rush alone to view it, more he approached, and more the light disappeared into the dark forest.
In the morning, the villagers realized that Neliah was not there, they decided to go looking for him. Until late in the day, no one found the man, and no trace. Neliah was never found and will be reported missing or dead. The settlers decided to name the creek "Neliah", in honor of the first man died on this land that thanks to him, a village was built."

Since the disappearance of Edvard Neliah, the region counted a dozen earthquakes, the last earthquake dates back about two months., and the village was depopulated a little more each earthquake.

Today, the villagers believe hard as iron in this legend. But scientists are trying to find explanations, in vain.

I wish you all a good visit this famous cliff! See you soon!

This small green house belonged to Neliah. She has since abandoned, some say hear strange noises within these four walls... This is definitely a band of squatters!

Great to see you wasted no time getting right back into it. Excellent mmp work as usual and your putting new meaning to the words going off the grid. It's like the word gird doesn't even exist in this world. btw could you tell me which mmp did you use to create those asphalt/cement looking roads? thanks!

Thank you Takingyouthere! :)I use single mod Chrisadams3997 RRP Draggable Paths

Wow. Wow. Wow. I admire your persistance despite technical problems, and how you quickly get ack to SC4 with AMAZING work. As @Takingyouthere said, the grid doesn't exist here, which is great!

And @Takingyouthere, an answer to your question, the paths are here: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1885

Thank you very much Michael. I do not like to waste time, unfortunately the R.C.D. is over. It is inutil to self-pity, we must move forward. :thumb:

Oh ok. I do not know, thank you for the information! I made a proposal. :)

The roads look slightly too wide for such a setting, but that's just insufferable nitpicking. Amazing work! :)

No this is not an unbearable point, quite the contrary! Now that you have this reflection, I find it true. Thank you anyway! :)
