Real Island Tour: Introduction

Sign in to follow this  


From the great Administrator of the Capitalis region, Sum Won Yuno:

For the next two and a half months, I have decided to post real life pictures of Honolulu, Hawai'i to compare and constrast with what I've built in SimCity as Capitalis, Paradise. I don't have pictures of everywhere possible, but I've taken over 1,000 photos of the island I call home. The updates will showcase the best pictures I've taken of places that tourists, residents, and locals may see around the island. I admit, the updates are fillers to keep readers occupied until I have time to do the pictures for the main story. I don't want this project to just lie in inactivity until mid-January 2010. I hope that all of you readers will gain a new perspective of Honolulu and better appreciation of the work I've put into Capitalis.

For the Real Island Tour, I will be referencing place names by their real names and including their SimCity name (if any) in the following format:  RealName (SCName)

There will be a lot of single images and some panoramas made from stitching together individual photos (with help with Hugin panorama creator).

Here is an example pair of pictures of Downtown from Punchbowl (Juicebowl) Crater:



The panorams are clickable! Click to see a larger version. The larger versions won't be the original quality, due to ImageShack's file size constraints.

I have more ready, but I need to fix issues with other panoramas (manual stitching is sometimes better than automatic). More will come Friday/Saturday this week.
