Show us your city's detail/close-ups

Okay, not another "Show us" thread. But this is bound to be interesting, because I've seen in the "Show us your accomplishments" thread, that it's mostly wide-shots of your city. And some of the pics are either in region view or far-zooms, so you only get the general overview of the city, and you don't see any close-up detail. I've looked in the forums, and I there isn't a topic on this. Huzzah! Plus, with SC4 being amazingly detailed to begin with (now with the STEX, it's even more detailed), there's bound to be tons of stuff to see in the closest zooms. Huzzah, once again!

Here's some close-up details of my port, in my city called Callisto Coast.

Wow. Look at the detail in those wharves.

NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!

Show us your city's detail/close-ups!

  • Thanks, guys. And my port probably looks like a lot of the ports in CJ's and stuff, but since I zoom in close to the details, you see things that you probably wouldn't have been able to see. C'mon, people! Post! This thread isn't about me! Give us some examples!

    I, also, must know where they came from. I never saw them on the STEX when I searched for it.


    I like the pics that are being shown. Great job, everybody!

    Lovely pictures guys!

    Here's a medium sized city I'm playing at the moment called Sans Souci.

    First a random pic of one of the many leafy downtown plazas, showing (from left-to-right) a corner clothiers, the hotel titanic and Her Majesty's theatre:

    Near the CBD and The Cathederal, are many large terrace houses:

    Next a row of low rise terraces on more quiet roads near the outer fringe of the CBD:

    SansSouci-Nov.jpg

    Before we hit the quarter acre blocks and parks of middle class suburbia:

    Mattb, where did you get those houses in the last pic? They look great. 

    Edit: I just discovered that you made the houses! Do you plan on releasing them anytime soon? 1.gif
