  2. 2021 Update

    ((OOC: Note that I'm greatly simplifying how this game works. Instead of having formal politician and business characters, everything will be entirely informal. You want to be mayor? Want to own the most influential newspaper in the city? Want to be a mafia boss? Just let me know.)) Washington Redskins to relocate to New Washington In so many ways, the Washington Redskins are forever entwined with the creation of New Washington. The team was decimated along with Washington DC, and it's owner Daniel Snyder has been a key investor in New Washington. Today Mr. Snyder announced that the NFL team would officially be moving to the new capital city. The public is asked for their suggestions on a couple of questions: In which town/neighborhood should the stadium be constructed? (MAPS) Should the team be renamed? Please reply to this post with your opinion on the issues. Jefferson Memorial Completed Following a citywide debate and vote, the Jefferson Memorial is remaining dedicated to Thomas Jefferson. Also being added on the monument is the inscription: Town of "Biden" Established The town of "Biden" has been incorporated north of the White House.
  3. London - Landmarks

    Fantastic update as always!! I have the same question, what is the next place ? Greetings my friend

    Thank you for voting @RandyE, @MAW, @ioh969, @Pluispixel, and @Mr Saturn64. A new update will be posted shortly.

  6. Update & Plans

    As you may know I've haven't posted in this city journal for a year now.Now I am planning to resurrect the project.However I will have to do a ton of research since I've changed the setting to the Pacific Northwest United States.I will still continue my other projects but in the meantime I will try to get something out within the next 2 weeks or so if possible.New Lanchester will have it's name changed to something else maybe or maybe not.This will a small city so don't expect some real tall towers.Also feel free to ask any questions.
  7. Last week
  8. Firstly some detail pictures

    Just some random screenshots put together, I m still not entirely sure how I want to give form to this City Journal...
  9. Medrean City olympic park and eco-district

    Realistic, you have left a lot of space between buildings and paths are well done, good job!
  10. Lynnfield - Update 3

    Quelques fois, SC3 me manque lorsque je vois d'aussis belles images... Nostalgie! Sometimes, SC3 miss me when I see beautiful pictures ... Nostalgia!
  11. Hatsukaichi - Closer View

    Beautiful, these neighborhoods are very well realized! The pictures in the night, towards the coasts, is no better! : D
  12. Another Update on Pololomia

    Well done! Simmer2
  13. London - The City & The Shard

    @kelistmac Thanks for the nice comment! Glad you enjoyed it @raynev1 Thank you very much for the nice words! @SS3K Thanks for the comment! I actually found an okay model of the Houses of Parliament online which I made into a BAT for use in the game, for the final update. It's not perfect, but it gets the job done.
  14. First view of San Lorenzo, capital of Grandoro.

    Interesting, I will keep my eyes on it
  15. Solving the Plobbable Residential Housing Bug

    Use the JDatpacker- it minimises CTDs and improves game stability and performance. http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3140
  16. Downtown pt.2

    I've managed to update some parts of downtown so here it is.
  17. Perseus returns!

    It's been a long time but Perseus lives on! Unfortunately due to persistent game save errors and crashing I lost the will to carry on with this game for some time and that was further compounded by a generally busy work and family life. I have however decided to start creating again and I'm struggling through the continuing errors so I've had to leave some large and densely packed unfinished city tiles for the time being and instead I'm working on the Passau Island development. I almost never post work in progress game images but I thought I'd give a teaser of what Passau Island entails. Yes the grid is on and there are empty tiles but it's just to give an idea of what's planned. Almost every lot and building on this island has, or will, be custom edited, which is a rather time consuming task in itself. It'll be a mix of commercial, residential and leisure developments. More to follow!!
  18. Considering the Upper East Side. Good Idea?

    Interesting pictures. I like the last one
  19. Depew, NY

    Its a bit strange to me see this kind of update, I mean with only Maxis buildings, but in any case it has a good touch of nostalgia and I like it.
  20. Fox in the Henhouse Part 1

    @kelistmac Thanks, I tried to base them off of locations in Afghanistan. With as many web searches as I made on Kabul and Afghanistan in general I started to worry whether I could expect a visit from CSIS! @korver I appreciate that since that was the picture I was most concerned about. I was just hoping it could convey some of the hopelessness of the situation.
  21. Earlier
  22. London - Canary Wharf

    @TekindusT Thank you very much! @_Michael Glad to have the seal of approval Yeah, that station would had to have been been a custom BAT and unfortunately my BATing skills aren't *quite* there yet. Thanks for the comment! @RandyE Thanks for the nice words! Glad you enjoyed the effects @huzman Thank you! I hope to do some in the future after I complete this massive batch of updates. @matias93 Thanks for the comment! Glad you enjoyed it, I have lots of other updates similar to this one coming up in the future @Fantozzi Glad you liked the reflections Thanks for the comment! @Angry Mozart Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. I don't really pay much attention to how much time each update takes, but it does take up a big chunk of my free time. @tariely Thank you! There's still a couple more updates to go with the remainder of London @The British SausageThanks! Unfortunately, I'm busy with lots of other updates so it's unlikely. You should give it a go yourself though, that sounds like a great idea for your CJ @mike_oxlong Thank you for the comment! Glad you noticed - didn't want to forget that detail @kingofsimcity Thank you very much! @Silur Thank you! Glad you liked it @RobertLM78 Thanks for the nice words! Yep, I love construction scenes, they seem to be so busy and full of life. Lots of construction going on too in the city so it was a good choice @_Michael I knew there was some sort of construction going on there but I wasn't 100% sure what it was - thanks for the clarification @Mr Saturn64 Thanks! I agree, they do seem to go well with each other @SC4L0ver Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I think most of those beautiful BATs were made by mattb325. The Zurich one can be found here and the corner one I believe is located here. @kelistmac Thank you very much for the nice words! @VicRusty Thanks for the comment
  23. Paris (Pt. 3/3)

    @RandyE Thanks for the nice comment Randy, glad you liked it! (I'd say your just fashionably late, which is more than acceptable ) @kelistmac Thanks for the kind words! Glad you liked that massive roundabout!
  24. Very nice photo-realism. Had to actually enlarge and study detail to see that its Cities Skylines.
  25. A map outlines the current neighborhoods and suburbs surrounding the city, though the city continues to grow all of the time. (This is the same city I once called Helensburgh. I've revisited an earlier save and have been rebuilding the city with it.) There will likely be a lot of posts at once, because I don't have a lot of time to play and I want to get the ideas out while they're in my head. The format will be posts from people simulating Reddit posts or other forums, asking questions about the city. We'll also feature articles from publications showcasing the various neighborhoods and what makes them unique. It'll be an opportunity for me to explore those sections of town and to discuss (and discover) what makes each of them cool versus others. Those prompts make the conversations a lot easier than when I was trying to do it on my own. Future posts won't be out of character, this is the last one.
  26. Maroon Bay Cow County !

    The farmlands looks pretty good, I've really enjoyed with this update
  27. Let's design Bel-Air episode 9 - old docks

    You have given a good use to this fantastic pack
  28. There Will Be Diagonals!

    As my kids would put it....Noice!!! Excellent attention to realism and detail. I especially like pictures 6, 8, 10 and 16. You have given me many excellent ideas for my city. Thanks!!
  29. Paris (Pt. 2/3)

    @tariely @RobertLM78 Thank you very much for the nice words as always @The British Sausage Thank you! @RandyE Thank you very much! Took a while to get it just right, glad you liked it. @_Michael Thank you! Glad you liked it, certainly took a while to track down all the right BATs. @feyss Thanks for the nice words and feedback! Some of the streets looked halfway between normal roads and cobblestone so it made things a bit difficult, but I'll keep that in mind in the future for some of the side streets @Fantozzi Thanks for the comment! I think they must be behind the trees @mike_oxlong Thanks alot for the nice words! @Mr Saturn64 Thank you very much! @kingofsimcity Thank you very much! Glad you liked it. @Haljackey Thanks for the comment! @TekindusT Glad you liked it @SC4L0ver Thanks for the nice words! Always nice to hear that from someone who lived in the city! Glad you enjoyed it.

        Simtropolis has been getting its share of trolls and sockpuppets lately.   But please keep up the good work and making your excellent BATs, and thank you very much for sharing your work.  Good to see you back contributing more buildings.   
      2. Fantozzi

        Well, some people are simply innocent - they are used to buy frozen pizza at the supermarket for 90 cent but they don't know how to make a pizza from natural ingridends . If the fridge broke down they would starve. But this doesn't prevent them to talk about 'good or bad' pizza like experts.
        Now, you are a five stars cook, a master. It's your fate being doubted by the microwave-cookers, knowing only frozen food.  They ask: 'why you did this, why did you do that - why, why, why...' If there isn't enough salt to their taste they even complain about missing salt as if they aren't able to add it themselves.
        They aren't evil, they are simply innocent. They don't know you can add suggar to the coffee if it isn't sweet enough. They will complain to the waiter instead. It's how they were educated - to be dependend, to put frozen pizza in the microwave, to call the handyman when tv doesn't work. 
        The service organisation of society creates people able to complain but not to do. They may think you are a fridge too. Simply taking frozen pizza from you. Sadly, you are right. It creates disrespect for the work you do.
        It's even worse on journalism. They think information is for free - why should I pay for it, if you get it for free somewhere else. And they complain about bad journalism - exactly those who never payed a penny for the information they get.
      3. RandyE

        I'm glad Fantozzi challenges the foundations of our civilization:
        Correctly, civilized human beings both demonstrate and expect certain social behaviors which alleviate harm.   There really is no such thing as innocence, so we may all start with the assumption of innocence for the sake of grace.   Some do not share this basis of humanity and pursue the guilt of their fellow human for the sake of harm, not for the sake of correction.  
        If I unintentionally or mistakenly offend then I learn and correct my mistake.  Some do not learn and correct, they simply run away to commit the same mistake and same harm another day.
        Those who are the true guilty are those who need to find fault and those who appease the faulty, they never own up to their own fault and neither ever correct it.
        Civilized humans say 'thank-you' and mean it, civilized humans say 'sorry' and correct it.
        And so the foundation of human civilization stands, and the people of humanity rest your honors.

        I'm with you Diego!
        Your BATs are just *awesome*, and it always saddens me to see someone nit-picking over the smallest or stupidest thing.
        Keep up the good work and don't let the rude haters get you down.

      Hi Diego Del Llano
      I was wondering if, by any chance, you will make your buildings growable one day ? All your buildings look wonderful, but I prefer seeing building growing randomly instead of placing them where I want. It's frustrating for me to see your creations and not having them in my cities !
      Again, wonderful job. Many thanks.

      Hola, Diego. Descargué el pack tuyo en el que aparece el Hotel Carlton pero sólo me aparecen cajas. ¿Tiene algún tipo de dependencia?
      · 2 Replies
      1. Diego Del Llano

        El Problema debe ser tu máquina -.- , yo no uso dependencias, tienes que descargarte todos los parches para que el juego funcione correctamente, todos mis plugins funcionan correctamente. Si usas Mac entonces no podrás visualizar muchas cosas ya que no todos los parches funcionan en Mac. No puedes bajar la calificación de un edificio si solamente no te funciona a ti. 
      2. matias93

        Eso, o borraste accidentalmente el archivo SC4Model, que es el que tiene el modelo 3D.
        Si el archivo está, prueba a acortar su nombre o el de la carpeta que lo contiene; cuando la ruta completa (nombres de carpetas + nombre de archivo) superan los 256 caracteres, el juego puede tener problemas para encontrar el archivo.

      Welp, this is it. I'll be going off radar for most of the following week. I'll be in to check in with PM's and forum updates. Plenty of pictures will be taken and many tales to cook up!

        Here's an idea for another power plant lot that represents a real practical application.  So instead of a sci-fi description, an actual engineering description.

      Sorry, I can't find a way to respond to your comment on NYBT Courthouse Of The Appellate Division. Anyway - Did you delete anything from MN or DN folders? Sounds like the game can't find the winter version model and is displaying brown box.
