tonyr: Work, work and more work! In my case I find it a gruelling experience finishing off city tiles.
Prophet42: Thanks a lot! Each city tile I finish always takes a little longer to complete.
kschmidt: I used avenues, SAM and NWM (Network Widening Mod) plus Bipin's concrete roads to add variety to the roads. Thanks for your comment!
Urban Constanta: Cheers!
Duco: I guess that's one way of looking at it.
Entry 21: Pololomia's City Centre (North)
And now comes the entries which are chock full of detailed pictures. I have also included extra mosaics to help place the area I am showing/featuring in relation to other areas in Pololomia. So, sit back and enjoy the show!
The area in question. This is the northern part of the city centre. Note: north is rightwards
I use a real mixture of US, European and UK buildings to get my style of city scenes. Though I will use other choices- such as Simgoober's swimming complex to the right.
Every mid-density and high-density city block always has car-parking and/or back alleyways or other fillers...
And sometimes back alleyways can segue-way into plazas...
Mini-parks plus mixing lots with MMPs to create playground areas.
Going downwards is moving eastwards.
The diagonal city block...
In this mosaic going downwards is going northwards.
I love me some threshold photoshopping.
Not sure exactly why but the photoshopping really came out well with this picture.
Downwards is moving southwards- into the city centre.
Churches and the corresponding graveyards.
The church is one of Mattb325's creations whilst the graveyard lots are one of Paeng's lot packs.
Down = North direction. Eventually we reach the Granger Industrial Estate.
There is only so much one can do with fillers and lots. Eventually the terrain has got to show!
Downwards = Westwards. This mosaic moves across the southern parts of the Granger Industrial Estate and also the northern-most parts of Pololomia's city centre.
Another mosaic moving westwards- one of the selling points is how Pololomia fits together, this means lots of mosaics!
One of xannepan's Paris buildings: a Parisian-styled fire station.
Heavily using Mattb325's lots here!
This picture showcases the dividing line between the city centre and the inner city area.
This 8x8 lot of Mattb325's is so cool!
And yet another great-looking diagonal building from Mattb325; First Federal Bank.
Down = West.
Mattb325's lots are very easy to work with because they work well with FrankU Dutch Parks and Gn_leugim's Forest Parks.
One final overview of the northern part of Pololomia's city centre.
The next entry will be posted somewhere between Thursday to Saturday. See you then!
