grstudios: Yep, it's wheat. Very vivid wheat too!

SimCoug: Thank you very much, and yes, my plugins can be a bit of a pain on occasion but they're nice and organised luckily.

NMUSpidey: Aww, thank you! I haven't got many stadium's in Cattala and I'm not a regular on Simsports but it's always a possibility.

Huston: Ceases to impress? I'm hoping you got that phrase muddled up. And I imagine it would be rather popular with tourists too.

standop: No worries, it's great to see new people looking at some of the older updates too. Unfortunately, that building was on davidluart, dmscopio's website, which has been taken down but there is another version on the LEX. It's a shame that a lot of his work has been lost because it's very very good.

Kruness, kakado_to_save: Thank you for the comment!

Welcome back, for the last time this year, to Lessito! Our journey around the south east of Cattala is coming to a close today. I go back to school on Wednesday to start my A-Levels, so updates will probably become more infrequent again unfortunately.

So here we are. After many weeks spent travelling along the A6 road from just past San Pietro, we've arrived at the end of our road trip. Marcolla is a small village that once served as the final stopover before truckers and travellers reached Ontano Bridge, after traversing the winding lanes of the old a-road, which you can see below.

Marcolla is surrounded by sprawling fields that in late August give up their bountiful harvests. For days on end, the village is surrounded by combine harvesters and grape harvesters reaping their produce from the land and plowing it back to dirt again. Local children enjoy rides with the farmer, since Lessito's schools having longer summer holidays than other regions to allow for the harvest season.

But Marcolla has been transformed by the construction of the A6 nearby, which was upgraded to a motorway after it was widened in the 1980s for two junctions. The village has two one-way roads linking to both carriageways of the main road, as well as the motorway spur to Ontano Bridge. Now the traffic never stops and the residents are trapped between the busiest stretch of Lessito's main road, the South Coast main line and the old A-road.

As evening descends on the village, it's time to say farewell to our Lessito journey. From here, the A6 splits into two - the motorway, leading south to the island we visited last summer, and the dual carriageway continuing east and then north, to Cape Almae.

Goodnight from Marcolla, goodnight from Lessito and I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

I'm sure that the people who live right in front of those purple fields will get depressed oneday because of it :P
Maybe you should add some trees next to the road
some trees around teh farms will make them more realistic also :D
But it seems that most of your farms can't handle big trees, they would make them ugly, so maybe small trees maybe like those in the forest.
