San Clemente City... an actual update!

Sign in to follow this  


This is my first update in about three months, so a lot has happened, and I have took on a whole new planning style on. I have challenged myself to build a hip but, of course, tropical beachside community (maybe like Las Vegas without the smoke, or Honolulu without the concrete). I've also built this, literally, on the side of a cliff 3.gif

I have an absolutely gigantic 5590x2465 image of the entire area, and it looks stunning, if I say so myself. But I can't show you it because no website wants a 22 MB picture, but I think I might have a way around the problem (think District of Wenzel streetmap 2.gif) so I will hopefully get that in before April.

Well, tell me what you think of the new style. It's certainly something different. There's a little bit of custom lotting too, but not a whole lot.


He's got the action, he's got the motion,

Oh yeah, the boy can play,

Dedication, devotion,

And turning all the nighttime into the day.

And after all the violence and double-talk,

There's just a song in all the trouble in the strife;

You do the walk, you do the walk of life.

-Dire Straits



This is San Clemente City. Where jungle mountains meet salty seas.


Where blue windows of towers meet blue windows of another world.


Have you ever thought of retirement? Start planning.


But until then, you have plenty of lodging.


You'll move mountains. You'll find the happy place you've wanted this entire time.


Of course, you'll get baked by the sun and humidity too. Though it's still the best view around.


And again, I'll see about that mosaic, I really want to get it up here 1.gif

Until next time

Probably cuz I'm a bigger Shooter Jennings fan than Dire Straits fan, I prefer the Shooter Jennings version of that song :P But regardless of that, this is quite something, I haven't been paying attention since you left the usnw (it's not you, I just don't go on the ST forums much :P) but from what I can tell so far, you've been doing excellent.
