That's a clever idea with the bikepaths between the roads. :) I like it!

@Jack3oh3: I place a lot of biking paths between my roads, it creates nice wide, green avenues.

Still looking good. Great stuff again :)

@Schulmanator: Thanks a lot, I’m happy you still enjoy it!

very nice and calm train ride, i like it! That last picture looks really nice, the tunnels, the station, the parks and the units make it feel really real.

great work :)

@City_master: Thanks! That picture is my favourite too :)

As I said over in the CJ section .. Nice update and love the rail tunnel under the road.

@Fox: Great to see another comment from you!

I love how your tracks cut through the hillside - very realistic detail.

@Simcoug: I liked how the straight hills made a big contrast with the smooth hills too :)

Wow more exciting updates!And I could see who inspired you to do your roadtour in the April 15 update

@Nathanthemayor: Thank you! Haha you can? :)

From the “new’ CJ section

Another great update! I really love that rail tunnel that passes under the road in the 6th picture.

@Fox : Thanks a lot! The road going over the rail line is one of the main roads heading out of the city.

Very nice. Ever consider using the Fractional Angle Rail (FARR) sets to avoid the zig-zags ?

@Jetty Jockey: Thanks! I do not have Rush Hour, so that won’t go :(

need to report this entry to Simtropolis. There's a one-star button here! There should only be a five-star button on this CJ!!!!!!!!!!

@Ggamgus: Thank you so much!


Photobucket blocked my pictures of last updates :( I’ll probably fix that some time.

Real life has been really busy, so only a quick update today.

The Oortsweeghe Synthesis Radio Telescope (OSRT) is an aperture synthesis interferometer near Oortsweeghe, Middelheimen. It consists of a linear array of 5 antennas on a North-South line, located on Arden Hill. The telescope was completed in 1973 and underwent a major upgrade between 1998-2003.

Next week I’ll be on holiday in Malta, so no update then. Comments are really appreciated, so please leave on if you have time :D

Amazing job, as always. 5/5, as always. Hehe, but I don't think you should use Photobucket. It has a lot of problems, so you should use Flickr. Flickr never gave me any problems before. But again, excellent job! :D
