    This challenge is all about the SimCity 4 "Network Addon Mod".
    Basically, how you can use the features to create eye-catching and realistic images. There are numerous components to the NAM -- such as the: RHW , RRW, HSRP and many more !
    In your images, you may use any component, from any version of the NAM . You don't necessarily need the latest version, although it'd be recommended as it contains the latest features and stability. Also, feel free to incorporate other elements which add detail. This may include areas of the surrounding city (MMPs, houses, skyscrapers, industry, forests, rural terrain, etc). Really any custom content which you feel enhances the images.
    This challenge welcomed up to 3 submissions per author.

    Leisure is quite a broad term. There are many ways to enjoy yourself, but quite a few common activities.
    This challenge is all about showcasing leisure & sports in your cities. There's many options here -- be creative! For example, you could choose an image of a beach scene, a shot from the local golf course, or hikers taking on the mountainous vistas.
    In your one image, you may showcase multiple leisure / sporting activities (e.g. a beach with surfing, sailing and volleyball).

    Images in our cities can look realistic, but editing them with Photoshop can make them seem lifelike. Take them to the next level, add extra effects and details which aren't possible in the games.
    Yes, it's time to get artistic and put your editing skills to the test. This time we're looking for an image from any city-building game, using at least one image manipulation technique. This can be subtle or complex, it's really up to you.
    There's really endless possibilities, and any scene can be used for the image. Also it doesn't necessarily have to be edited using Photoshop -- there's lots of alternatives out there (e.g. Gimp, Paint.NET, or even web-based tools). Even Word has some basic built-in tools!

    Little diversion for this week's challenge. It was previously announced, but with the new C:S update we just had to jump into the Night. The new update brings something that has been available in SC4 for over 10 years, but that doesn't stop it from being beautiful.
    Submit images showing off what happens when the sun goes down. These could be between either sun set, to sun rise.
    Oh, and this time feel free to submit an image from both SC4 and/or C:S . We've all got our favourite SC4 night time image, and we don't want to limit your exploration of C:S .
    So feel free to upload two images, as long as they are from different games.

    This week's challenge looks into the lifestyle of the rich and the famous, specifically around where they live.
    High-rises! Skyscrapers! Apartment Buildings!
    Submit your images which show off the high-rises or skyscrapers in your city. These obviously don't need to be in downtown, but that is more than welcome too, you could show off a seaside escape, a suburban anomaly, or maybe its the only skyscraper in your city. As long as it shows off your tallest buildings, that's what we want to see.

    The backbone of a region's industry, farming plays an integral part to a country's economy. Away from inner-city congestion is the industrious nature of agricultural life. Tractors, ploughs, and combine harvesters all have a job to do. There are so many details on a farm, and each is unique in their own way.

So lets see what interchange sets your city apart. Try keep your interchange as a creation of your own, but if you must use a pre-made one then that's okay too.

    Mass transit can help create a stable city, but at its core can be very hectic. Lets see the centres of your transport system. Every great city has one, grand central station for instance, so lets see yours. It can be range from a group of small bus stations, a large train station, to a ferry terminal, or a mixture of them all. Lets try to keep it around mass transit.

    Sport complexes can be the centre of tourism in cities, or they can be the small pitches which local children use during the summer.
    In this challenge we want to see what your citizens use to play sports on. This can be anything and of any size, in our minds a complex must contain atlas something sports related, exercise  equipment or a football pitch for instance. Really anything, as long as it is sports related.
