@MamaLuigi945: Thank you my friend :)

@TekindusT: Lol, don't worry, we're just getting started... ;)

@NMUSpidey: Thanks, so far, it is working out great! :yes:

@Fox: Thank you Fox, you are very kind :)

@Evillions: Thanks for commenting! As for the tanks, if you look closely you can see

the grey base texture, it blends in rather well with the shadow (giving the transparent

feel). Sorry for tricking you :(

@escilnavia: Lol! I hope we can remain good friends though ;)

@elavery: Thank you, it means alot to hear that from a great guy like yourself :D

@Zirbs: They are found here : Somy's Port Set (2nd Download)

Quick Note:

Atlantsia wouldn't be habitable if it wasn't for the few days of rain each year. The rainy

season is usually during June and July here, however it also rains a bit in the other months

as well. The rain is a very special occasion, many fishers head out to the Arabian Sea, hoping that the raising sea levels will inscrease the chance of a large catch. In rural villages, the water is collected in a barrel, which is then stored underground in small damp rooms to prevent

evaporation as much as possible. In the cities, the rain has little effect on day to day procedures, but heavy rain often causes car crashes and limited visability. At the airport, there are always several delayed and canceled flights.

As a CJer:

I don't want to seem like a complete fool, but the past week has been very busy for me. I have also spent much of my freetime experimenting with the ilive reader, one of my new favorite SC4 related tools, almost ahead of the L.E. This means that I spent less time working on the next city tile (which is coming along fine, but isn't complete),and more time experimenting with desert terrain mods (I created my own using some of Marsh's textures, but I am not using it because it still looks a bit like a grid from the region view and I don't want to re-render all the city tiles over again. Anyways, with that said, this entry is sort of a review of the past updates, no description really, just pics, I hope you enjoy!














Thank you very much for viewing. Comments and ratings are well appreciated. Thanks! :ducky:

[color="#FF00FF"]Great update once again.

I love the night picture .. all that colour and neon.. wow!

Great effects to with the rain. I like the story, but storing water in barrels under ground? That would take a lot of space .. I'd love to get a tour of that, it would be very fascinating in real life.[/color]
