Hello To All!Sorry that I couldn't do my update before Christmas but my short one just didn't let me do anything in Sc4 ... and in the little remaining time my wife wanted to have something from her husband so ...
Anyway here I am - not with another teaser but with a full blown updates which is only part 1 of 2.
BTW - in case you don't know, the Trixies are out. And well, I am a little bit proud for winning the "Best Rural CJ" - Trixie for the second time ...
Overview and surrounding of Hainingen. Haining is a part of the map / community of Petershain.
As you can see there's quite something left to do on the right and lower edge of the map ...
The village itself is dominated by the Scharff & Rizz Papiermanufaktur, a evry old and traditional paper manufacturer. The company was one of the reasons the railway line was built as the transport with horse cars to the nearby river harbours became too expensive and slow in the second half of the 19th century.
Next to the paper factory you can see the Jakob Daniel Eiswarengesellschaft, famous not only for their Bourban Vanilla icecream but also for their Bourban flavour icecream ...
The industry never expanded across the little street. In the early days it was the necessary railway connections in ladder days the birds that raise their children in the small wood across the street.
Even today agriculture is very important to Hainingen as seen here.
Rather symbolical: the main road of Hainingen ends up in a dirt road for the farms and a small street for the factories ... and behind the forrest is literally nothing!
I like these irregular shaped areas as they do make nice little woods that are home and hideout for birds and insects that don't find a place in today's "clean" agriculture.
Nice difference: The dirt tracks before I painted them with the RRP flora ...
Yes I know, some texture work is necessary at the Maxis field. The entry pre signal leads us directly to the ...
... entry signal of Hainingen with some suicide cows.
It has a pre signal that shows if a train has to stop or may run through. Especiall yon secondary railway lines it isn't always necessary.
The same area like 13.8 but from another angle and with the RRP textures. I just like the shades of green here!
The side strip of that road was one of my first tries to use the RRP. Even though I prefer the Green Rye Grass by now I still do like the layout!
The main road of Hainingen connects the village to the main road that runs next to the village.
The railway leaves to Grafenauberg and the Hydro Power Plant (you haven't forgotten, have you )
Next time I'll show you some tips and tricks.
And of Course:
A Big Thank You Very Much to all those who nominated me!
And another Big Thank You Very Much for my second "Best Rural CJ" - Trixie!
