10 - Low Tatras



So, after the introduction and teaser update, we can continue to the full update. We will now look on the Mountains of Nizke Tatry. They are second highest mountains in Slovakia, with highest peaks Dumbier and Chopok(what is much more visited). There is also located one of the largest Slovak ski resort - Chopok Jasna. At first, we will look on the lower part of the mountains. On the hillsides are located many so called "rock avalanches" or fields.


One of the not many lakes there and largest lake in the Low Tatras is lake of Vrbice. It is medium sized lake, what is only sometimes visited by tourists.


One of the largest ski resorts in Slovakia and largest in Low Tatras is Chopok Jasna. It is popular among tourists, mostly from czech republic.


It is located on northern hillside of mount Chopok, second largest peak in low tatras. It has more than 5 major chairlifts and over 20 skiing ways.


Low Tatras are also beautiful in summer, I present you impressive view on the mountains from the one of peaks there.


And finally, I present image of another part of frozen lake Vrbice in winter.

I rarely comment on CJ updates, but this truly is spectacular, living on the north side of these mountains I can assure these pics are amazing.

These pictures are fantastic - it is very hard to create nature in SC4 but you have. Well done!

Another stunning update. Very creative use once again of the custom content.

The ski lodge looks great and I love how you've created the skiers and the ice skaters.

Beautiful update indeed! You've managed to integrate both real-life and in-game pictures in a way that one can barely distinguish between the two :yes:
Keep up the great work :thumb:

Best regards,
Mayor of Belleville

P.S. Turns out to be a double post... I forgot that I posted in the old CJ section and not here, so when I came here for the second time, I thought the post was not uploaded successfully.

I've been to Slovakia, beautiful country! Great work, I really like it. I remember that on some of the mountains there would be square sections of trees missing where they had done logging, could be an interesting bit of realism to add somewhere.... In any case, great work!
