Well, restaurating the old city walls really gave a big boost to this city ;-)... We start our tour in the northeast through the HiTech Park...

Passing by the freight station...

Since the city draws tourists from all over the region, a Grand Central Station was needed...

We buy a pair of good walking shoes, then check into the old friendly Family Hotel...

Time to check out the Old City Wall, a SimWorld National Heritage... Through the Main Gate and ogling the Old Water Castell...

Wonderful stuff as always, the rail underpass in particular is great. If I had one criticism it would be that I don't think the grand central station fits in with the city. The rest is fantastic though, the lot work, the layout and the variety of custom content is all top quality :)

Additionally, where did you get the railway underpass lots? Further, I know I've seen those retaining walls before someplace, but I can't remember where.

Both from Stex - [i]JS Seawalls V3[/i] and [i]JS Rail Tunnel - DTR Entrance Extended v3 - Concrete[/i]... both should be easy to find.

Paeng, you are the only person I know of who can mix rural and hi-tech and make it work out so perfectly. Great work, and attention to detail, as usual. 5/5 & +1 :thumb:

Never enough of those... Best start searching the Stex for the works of people like [i]Prepo, Krio, Odainsaker, Glenni[/i].... and then search some more :-)

Incredibly beautiful. Your cities always make me think of something out of a Miyazaki anime film. It is very realistic but it also has a fantastic quality to it. Very inspiring.

Oooohhh... too high praise! Miyazaki-san is in a different league :-))

But thank you - I'm glad you like my '[i]idealized realism[/i]'! ;-)

Nothing beats that feeling of entering the ST homepage and finding a new, mesmerising, so beautifully crafted update by you, Paeng. Really. 100 out of 5 :clap:

Hey, thanks for all your nice comments :-))

The questions -

[b]Canals [/b]can be found somewhere on [b][url="http://^http://hide-inoki.com/bbs/phpbb2/viewforum.php?f=7&topicdays=0&start=0"]this site[/url][/b] - needs some 'digging'...

The [b]church[/b] is [i]Muenster Villingen[/i] and the [b]multi arch[/b] is the [i]Charlottenburg Gate[/i] (both should be here on Stex, or maybe on Lex)

I'm using [b]PEG's Alternate Railway[/b] Mod from the Plex.
