In episode #1, we kickstart the city by building up a small island and than looking to spread out our city in the next episode. We so far have began to build our skyline, and commercial districts and the iconic japan neon light street. Project Japan is a humble attempt to build a somewhat realistic looking Japanese city situated somewhere between Okayama and Kobe on the northern shore of the Harima-nada sea. Japanese city series are almost non-existent, perhaps because of the serious ack of Japanese themed assets on the workshop. Finding inspiration can be tricky. Therefore, revamps are to be expected throughout the series, as i get better at building Japanese cityscapes and/or new assets become available.

I'm building my home town, Berlin, with the help of your many mods and assets (I am using 70+ mods and 600+ assets). I started playing Cities:Skylines about 2 months ago and I'm enthused by the activity happening here and in the Steam Workshop. Thank you guys!
I'm endeavoring to add some of my own custom assets to the Workshop, but I'm new to the entire process. I'm good at photoshop, but I suck at Blender! I booted blender for the first time last week, so I'm at the rough end of a steep learning curve. You guys have been very helpful to get me over a few stumbling points. Now I'm getting ready to publish a couple of items and I'd like to run them by you first. I'm trying to start simple, but even simple objectives seem to morph into week-long efforts. Please let me know how my work can be improved.
I've got a Checkpoint Charlie cooking (check my screenshot stream on steam or on twitter, if you're interested), but let's start with the Rosinenbomber from the Deutsches Technikmuseum:
I found a DC-3 model by Giovanni E and lifted it to the top of the stock library with some prop anarchy:
I was happy to find a DC-3, but the model has some texture problems (the illumination map is always fully on) because it's an old model and was probably made before After Dark. In wanting to fix the lighting problem, I wound up re-texturing the entire model to specifically be the famous Berlin C-47 "Rosinenbomber," as well as adding some propellers.
It's starting to look decent in-game, but I still have some shadowing issues that I'm working on around the windows.
I'd like to improve the body texture so that it looks more silvery and less white in the sun (I'm using PhotoReal3 LUT and Daylight Classic mods).
Here are my current diffuse and spec maps:
How would I go about improving the look of the body surface? I'd like it to be more shiny and silvery.
My next question is, what is a good approach to make the LOD model?
Thx for looking & thx in advance for your suggestions.
Long time since I've been very active. Jumped back into making game content, this time for Cities Skylines. Been working on a new modular airport for way too long and finally starting to put the finishing touches on it. This is my 1st unveiling and I'll probably be working on it for another month before releasing.
When I started out to make this monstrosity, I had small goals to just make some simple modular airport pieces. I was always unhappy with how the nightlights in a modular building looked, always coming on at different times. When the nightlights were on all the time, I didn't like the look of it either. So I learned how to make Clear glass props. Nice. So then I had to model the insides of the buildings, then figure out the pathing, the roads I use to simplify laying things out broke the paths. So I learned how to make new roads and offset the pedestrian paths. Then I thought that I wanted to be able to have a working skytrain system going to different parts of the airport. So I had to learn how to make a proper elevated train station and a new rail line that could be bent at 90 degree angles to fit in the buildings. On and on it went until now I feel confident enough to unveil this to the community, warts and all.
There are about 30 buildings in the set, a boatload of glass props, 4 roads and about 30 props (not glass). This will not be for the faint of heart. I made this airport shone in about 3 hours. This is not a "plop and go" building. Remember that some airports are like little cities themselves. So all these resources for an airport aren't all that bad...right?
Almost forgot to mention the parking garage with the skywalks and integrated metro station will be released with this too. As a side note, I spent a lot of time making a station for the skytrain in the garage and making it go into the terminal building. Not happening at this stage. For now I have given up on that folly.
The modular 8 level parking garages will have 11 buildings and I made 2 new parking lot light props for them.
Don't be shy and tell me what you think. Just be gentle please.
The 2018 Asian Games is a big sport event. Beside from traditional sports, eSports are available. The games including Arena of Valor, the latest version of PES, League of Legends etc. But, why there's no city sim (C:S and SC4) have been picked on any eSport events? It's cool to compete with other real-life nations, for instance, to create a beautiful yet functional imaginary cities or replicate real-world cities. I know that this question somewhat childish, but I'm still curious answering that.
Yesterday, I've tried an internet cafe near me. Every PC has Steam client and the USB can be plugged. In my knowledge, Steam games can be made offline and their offline data is available. I'll leave that later. Which game should I buy up to around $20, Cities: Skylines or SimCity 4? I've missed the promo few days ago. Are there any another giveaways/promos on them? Also, if I made the game offline, can I copy the files to my USB drive? So, I don't have to download the game again, only the validation. No, I'm not supporting any kind of gray/black distribution of the game. It's only for personal use and for 1 PC (though is moving).
