After months of delay because of an accidental deletion of all my SC4 Mod files, I have recompiled most of my old plugins and can now finally begin working on this journal.


This City Journal is not a typical one, I'm not actually going to be using the vanilla game to build a city from a region. For me, what matters most is the outcome, what you the viewer/reader will experience. I want you to feel like you are reading a captivating picture-filled story or history book. If you are looking for a Journal where you watch my in-game zoning and building, this is not for you. In order to make this seem realistic, no in-game features will be shown (as much as possible).

Each Entry will consist of a series of photos of a particular city or region in Asia. This will be mostly China, Japan, and Korea, but will eventually come to include Russia, India, and any others that I can think of. These entries will all have a specific 'theme', being both a place and a time, sometimes an event. This will make the reading experience very enjoyable, for you, the adventurer, will get to travel from the early 1900s, to the far future, back to the time of the Pacific War, or to the economic boom of the 1980s.

I have collected the only the most high-quality modifications and plugins for your scenic pleasure. The image-editing program GIMP will be used , but moderately for after-effects and touch-ups. I will accept any questions, and attempt to answer all of them. Votes on what the next Journal-Entry should comprise of will be put in place if a large-enough number of people begin to follow.

Now that you have been introduced, please check my journal for updates later this week, and enjoy this small preview image!

That is part of Kei's Zakkyo building set, it came with no description other than 'zakyo1'. Here is the link to the creator's website though: [url="http://tokyo-urbanlab.jpn.org/"]http://tokyo-urbanlab.jpn.org/[/url]
I'm glad you're looking forward to it :D
