Not sure if this has been posted before but thought why not I'll post it up.

Anyway tell us your hobbies besides city builders and the forums.

Really curious to see what everyone on here is into since id regard this community quite highly as a intelligent creative group.

I'll get the ball rolling...

My main hobby besides gaming and city builders which in the grand scheme of my life takes the backseat is Cars.

I own 2 Subaru Legacies and I love modifying and trying all sorts of different setups, my first car is also the first car I've properly built I would list all the specs and stats about it but since this is a city building forum not a subaru forum ill just keep it short and sweet.

This is my 1998 Legacy RS (Jap spec) bought it as my first car in 2014 is ej20R twin turbo factory have since single turbo converted it, blew up the engine, fitted STi heads, forged it rebuilt it and redone nearly everything in the engine bay. Currently saving for a tune to extract more power out of the current setup.

This is my second car a 1991 legacy Brighton awd when im not in the workvan im running about in this. its a gutless single cam auto but ive given it a good polish and lowered it and I think it really looks the part.

You are right my friend about the creativity of this community since the games we are interested in requires lots of it. My hobbies are creating videos and editing music. Nothing feels better for me than creating a harmonic mixture of sound and visuals. I am married as my profile picture shows xD. I create videos about my love life since my wife love such things. If you would like to see some of my created videos, here is my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtZFkgd20ZBSkphvPAoUl6A

I also edited a music by adding various different sounds turning into a non-narrated incident. But I didn't upload it yet.

    Interesting thread to read through so far.  Man, I miss my Subarus, even the powerless 1.5L FWD Impreza I had in Japan...  Oh well.

     

    As for myself, I spend my free time writing (I finally have a novel worth shopping around to agents which is this weekend's project), hiking (I live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, a hiking heaven, and my wife and I take our kids out almost every weekend to play in nature), and reading comic books.  I have a pretty decent collection of mostly late 90s early 00s comics, although my X-Mens reach back into the early 80s.  I'm working on getting earlier issues.

    If the publishing houses don't "bite", you could always go digital print and direct marketing for yourself. Just a suggestion, as it will cost you to get started.
