Aspen Terrain Detailing



Aspen Terrain Detailing

I have not been in the Aspen Tile for a while... the interesting thing about this tile is that it has been constructed entirely with the PEG Snow Mod installed. Anyway I noticed there was a section of the river below the lake that had not been detailed... a common problem in my tiles... icon1_rolleyes.gif

Well let's get on with it then...






The stream is icy but not completely frozen.



Zoom out... ayup... looking good... Hmm... what else can I do while I am here....?


Heli-skiing anyone?



Medical Landing Strip... comes in handy when the nearest fully equipped large hospital is about 4 large tiles away in the region.

I'm not sure about skiing, but a little snow hiking and hot chocolate inside afterwards is perfectly acceptable. Now, back to lurk mode.

Thanks everyone... this was a comment I just posted over at Simpeg, but if anyone is interested in the early beginnings of this particular tile and the earlier updates...

[color="#444444"][font="verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"][quote]"In progress" or construction updates have always been a feature of my CJ's... it gives the reader a little insight into how it was done, and to maybe give them an idea or two for their own cities.

Developing a tile from the beginning with the snow mod installed is certainly a different way to go about things.

[url="http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?topic=6102.msg167605#msg167605"][u]Aspen was actually started[/u][/url] way back in December 2009, when the PEG Snow Mod was first released... [url="http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?topic=6102.msg167803#msg167803"][u]soon after the Snow Resort lots came along[/u][/url].

Then a little while later [url="http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?topic=6102.msg167881#msg167881"][u]the diagonal lifts opened.[/u][/url] The tile continued to grow with the addition of the [url="http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?topic=6102.msg168152#msg168152"][u]Eleven Pipers Ski Resort[/u][/url] and the [url="http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?topic=6102.msg168363#msg168363"][u]Civic Snow Patch[/u][/url] helped to complete the winter look.

So as you can see... this particular tile is a work in progress... well all my tiles are really.[/quote]
