Thanks for all the feedback and encouragement.
SimCoug - Thank you.
gman28 - I totally agree with your observation. I've been thinking of relocating the elements of this Zone in a newer better designed one. This Zone was made quite a while ago when I had an obsession with avenues for some reason. There are a lot of older zones that I tend to re-do because they are ugly and follow more novice design principles.
Schulmanator - Glad you enjoyed it, thanks
NurelFayed - Thanks.
frdrcklim - lol, I'm so used to the French Tintin names. At first I was like: "Calculus? Who the heck is that?" In French he is called Tournesol which means Sun Flower.
Not much to report. Over the weekend I rebuilt the Zone called Aphrodite and I've decided to share the results with you since I am satisfied. I rebuilt this Zone because like a lot the Zones I built in the early days of Ionica it isn't well designed. There were way too many avenues surrounding every neighborhood, it was a very poor use of space. I also took this chance to expand the GLR into this zone and I will probably rebuild the next Zone over, Scorpio, to further expand it.
Aphrodite II - Population 58,386
This is the first zone I got to use the JENXPARIS Pont Notre Dame TRAM IN ROAD bridge and boy does it work well and look cool! I'm surprised there aren't more tram-in-road bridges, aw well. I don't have a snow mod, and maybe I will consider using one for an even more wintery look. I'm just hesitant to dl a snow mod because as far as I know they aren't seasonal which would mean that I would have to install and uninstall the plugin every time. I lost the Bank of Moscow building (it disappeared) because the terrain was slightly uneven, too bad, it is such a nice building. I know, it is spring time and most of us want to forget about winter but since most of the pictures were taken while my seasonal trees were in autumn and winter mode I thought I'd try some Photoshop snow effects
Thanks for visiting and thank you Simtropolis.
