PORTO MACONDO - A little coastal town

Porto Macondo is a nice little coastal town on the "Golfo di Castellammare". Early in the morning you will see fishermen going out to sea in their typical boats, later returing with freshly caught fish for the local markets and restaurants. You can book a guided boat trip or even rent a boat yourself to explore the "Golfo di Castellammare".

In the summer period Porto Macondo's harbor comes to life at night and the area becomes a pedestrian zone, where you can visit several bars, pubs and restaurant. Sitting on a terrace overlooking the harbor, you can enjoy a cocktail, Macondian wine, handmade ice-cream or a refreshing Macondian granita.

Porto Macondo is also an excellent starting point for visiting the famous marina reserve and the Tonnara, where we organize scuba diving activities and boat trips.

Bother me in private? Nah, don't worry. I'm here to help if ever you need anything.

 

This coastal town is really impressive. Another amazing entry. Great design.

 

Makes me so sad because I was working on something very similar and now that my hard drive is dead I won't be able to work on it for at least a week.

Bello cazzooooooooooooooo!!!! Strafigo. Ma ci metti un sacco di custom content che pero non é disponibile per tutti... sei prorio bravo. Poi tra l´altro c´é questo perfetto sapore italiano dappertutto... mamma mia.
I palazzi che sono sulle piazzette e che in apparenza non hanno contatto con una strada (traffic enabled), sono tutti ploppable e non functional oppure come riesci a evitare la dilapidation ? Guarda, la tua é tra la miglior roba che ho visto in giro... sono fan da moooolto tempo... COMPLIMENTI VIVISSIMI... Keep Up!!!

Hello, thanks for the compliments ... to create this realistic effect I used the lot editor. I chose the texture with white bricks and used various "overtexture" to dirting all. After I joined the houses in blocks of 2x10 or 4x4 or 6x4 and then I added all the details using  prop pack of girafe, mbear, nbvc, VIP team and many others that I have downloaded over time and that I could not tell who they are. After I assembled everything and I mixed it all with various MMPs. So this time it's all ploppable. On the other pages of the newspaper is a mixture of plop and grow (I think they say so).

Very nice pics!

 

Then let's do it the hard way.

take all bus-skins out of your plugin-folder, watch 10-20 trains. If you can't see any buses on the rails put one bus-skin in the folder, watch again...

If you see buses without those skins in the folder, make the same with the train-skins. but then also without buses.

The villain must be somewhere. :D

Amazing, i like the feel and atmosphere you've created here, it is really emphasised by the lack of formal roads

It doesn't get any better than this!" Smooooooth!
