Sculpting Nature, Part 3

Good day, Simtropolis viewers!

Today we will continue our journey of sculpting the nature, soon to be a civilized area. Funny that I invest so much in the process, even though I know it'll be destroyed. Hmm, perfectionist, anyone?

Beware, this is a long post. Don't get used to it. :nyah: Just joking. I like having a CJ that appeals to many users.

Grstudios presents... Some meadows, and another cliff:

So... My first tile is about to be completed. In the process of it, you enjoy with some more heart-warming wilderness, as opposed to the usually seen cold & remote skyscrapers and megalopolises. But in time, this nature will be disrupted in favor of mankind's need of claiming the land to improve it's own life.

The following pics are taken along a river's banks, and the meadows that surround it.

That's the perfect place to build a village, right?

Another bend of the river, bypassing a small hill.

Nice fishing point... Who knows, maybe one day it will serve the locals.

Sculpting nature, the mosaic:

This is the first tile in it's whole. You can see my slow progress... :blush:

I hope that I will complete the southern bank of the major river and the small island in the following days.

With that bombshell, it's time to say farewell, until the next update!

Thanks for watching/commenting. :D

That first pic of the riverbank is great - I like how you threw in some dead trees to give it a little variety. It's going to be hard to build over this :)

Wow. Definitely looks realistic! or as realistic as you can get in SC4. Every time I try with the details like that I get carried away with too much of one thing or too little of another.

Your nature work is going quite well, but if i can offer a little nitpicky piece of advice: over the last couple updates i've noticed the spacing on your norweigian maples and bedrock pieces has a definite pattern to it, you can see where you've placed them in fairly evenly spaced lines. If you do it more random and haphazardly it's a little more realistic.

That said, you're still doing a very good job.

Some of the most realistic nature work I've seen in Sim city. I'm not exaggerating, this is beautiful work. Keep it up.
