Dublin, Ireland (My recreation)




So I've been a long, long time player of SC4. I've messed around for years and never fully jumped in - mainly due to the lack of a decent PC or laptop. But in the past year the idea of recreating my home city, Dublin, has appealed to me. 

At first, the negatives outweighed the positives - the medieval city & suburban winding streets, the unsustainable (in SC4 terms) suburban sprawl, the lack of Dublin landmarks, getting the scale right and finding the right plugins. 

I quickly gave up the first time, due to the amount of time it was consuming. However I persevered in the past few months and so far I've 3 complete city tiles (still a hell of a lot more to go). The biggest drawback is having to make almost every building "historic" as to keep within the city character. This is particularly annoying when building sprawling monotonous housing estates - spend ages going through it all only to have a feckin mansion pop up later on in the centre of it.....GRRRR!!

Anyway, I'll rant more in the future. Tips and help are greatly, greatly appreciated.
