*blows off dust again*

Lets take a look at a whole new developing urban center that I've been working on now that I have a new PC that runs SC4 lightning-fast.

NOTE: Some chat regulars have probably already seen these.

Overview of the Hawthorne Creek CBD so far:

Main features include the High-Speed Rail Terminal and surrounding commercial development, the Westbank and Downtown Expressways, and the magnificent bridges.

Random pretty houses off the Downtown Expy:

Growing suburban development near a brand-new Diverging Diamond Interchange:

And how about a shot of the HSR cable-stayed bridge?:

I am quite jealous of that diverging diamond interchange! I love the RSS feeds, its like they instantly put a stop to the month-long wait you put on us!

Wow, haven't been here in a while... great stuff... interesting 'diverging diamond' intersection. I've never seen such an intersection in real-life, but it's definitely plausible. Is there traffic control for the avenue so that the two parallel directions don't crash into each other?

Your work keeps turning out to be great Connor. The cities may look unfinished all around, but they are still works of art to look at.

LOVIN' that HSR Bridge. :D

Thanks guys!

Evillions: Why yes, actually I do. I am a member of the NAM Team.

Vince: Yes, "the stuff" is excellent to play with! ]:)

Dan: Diverging Diamonds are a relatively recent concept, at least in the U.S., and only one has been built so far, on I-44 in Springfield, MO. And yes, there should be traffic control devices, yes, they just haven't been t21'd. ;)
