100 Circle Farms are kinda famous in the States for being irregular... But guess what, random fact of the day, McDonald's uses potatoes from the 100 Circle Farms for their wonderful French Fries! Well, I was the one who thought McDonald's fries were actually made off of corn and other artificial products, guess it might not be the case...

On the other hand, we have as well the magnificient Boreal Forest which is present in many nordic nations, including in Canada, USA (Alaska), Russia and Scandinavia! But this forest is exploited in many places, not as much as the tropical forest of Amazonia in Brazil, but still quite well... I've personally been in parts of Quebec's boreal forest where there was clearcutting, and it's quite depressing.

The crop circles are nice! :)

The Boreal Forest is cool too. Yeah, it's a similar depressing feeling when watching Nature on PBS or whatever and it shows a really beautiful forest scene or polar bears hanging out and the narrator says "Soon all this will be destroyed." :/

I thought it's a middle-eastern CJ when I saw the cover :D
There are alot of this kind of farms in Saudi Arabia and other desert countries.

Too bad that such beautifull forests are being cut down.

Very nice CJ :D

Those circle farms can be found in a 3RR file thread over at sc4devotion. I don't have an exact link, sorry. They come in 2 sizes: 16x16 tiles and 32x32 tiles.

Thanks! The only circle farms I've seen where in the US, so I can't really say.

How big are the farm circles (in SimCity I mean)...the ones I have are rather small in terms of real life size.

These ones are 24x24 but there are also 12x12 versions
