I am sure you have put in many hours of effort in creating this city, but there are many rooms for improvement. There is a heavy repetition of buildings. Thus, adding custom BATs from STEX and BSC would further make your regional city view more appealing.

I would suggest you spending more time in your improving your city at the micro-scale level (a neighborhood or even a strip of road). You can try decorate these "parts" or your city with open spaces, custom BATs, natural vegetations, etc... I believe by doing so, you got a lot more content to share with us here in Simtropolis. Thus, this gives you more opportunities to create more updates per city!

I don't mean to discourage you. I seriously hope my comments could help you improve your SC4 skills and CJ. Best of luck!

There is something far more important than BATs or whatever downloads you may try out: properly displaying your pictures. Here is a far superior way to go about showing us what you have built:

Step 1: Take the pictures of the desired areas you which to show. It's best if they are jpegs.

Step 2: Upload said pictures to a photo-hosting website. There are plenty to choose from, such as photobucket.com, imageshack.com, flickr.com, or imgur.com just to name a few.

Step 3: Get the direct link for the image you wish to show us.

Step 4: On Simtropolis, click on the little box with the tree above the box in which you're typing your update and paste the link you got for the image in Step 3.

Step 5: Click "Insert Image".

Step 6: Repeat steps 3 through 5 as many times as necessary.

Step 7: Click "Publish" and you're done!

There isn't an attachment limitation when you post images using this method, and we get to see them all in their full-sized glory without having to waste time downloading each one individually.

I hope to see more of your city soon! Best of luck!
