Aldrich Bay was formerly a bay in the north shore on the Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. It is now reclaimed and is a housing area outside the area of Shau Kei Wan, neighbouring A Kung Ngam and Lei King Wan. Outside Aldrich Bay, it is the Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter. It is not a small community. It contains Oi Tung Estate, Tung Yuk Court, Aldrich Garden and other private housings, with several primary school and secondary school. It is administratively part of the Eastern District.
The Chinese name for Aldrich Bay roughly translates to "The Bay that Loves Discipline"

Hong Kong has been a container port for almost four decades. In 2009, Hong Kong once again proved itself to be one of the world's most efficient container ports by handling 21.0 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). The port of Hong Kong is a major hub port in the global supply chain with about 400 container liner services per week to over 500 destinations worldwide.
The port is the key factor in the prosperity and economic growth of Hong Kong, handling 89% of Hong Kong's total cargo throughput. The container port is vital, not only for Hong Kong, but also for Southern China - one of the fastest industrialising areas in the world, as about 70% of container traffic handled in Hong Kong is related to Southern China. More than 60% of the containerised cargoes to and from Southern China are carried by river feeders, and the rest by container trucks.
Hong Kong is one of the few major international ports in the world where port facilities are financed, owned and operated by the private sector. The role of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government is to undertake long-term strategic planning for port facilities and to provide the necessary supporting infrastructure.
In 2009, 205,510 ships, comprising both ocean-going vessels and river trade vessels for cargo and passenger traffic, visited the port of Hong Kong.

A city within a city with nearly 3 million square feet of prime office space, they accommodate thousands of people daily for both work and leisure. The towering Two ifc is Hong Kong island's pre-eminent landmark and an enduring symbol of the region's robust financial vigour.
And when illuminated, the building's triumphant finials transform into a shimmering beacon welcoming visitors to the city. With almost 3 million square feet of prime business district office space and unusually large floorplates, One and Two ifc are ideally suited to financial institutions who require spacious, open-plan trading floors.
Hope you liked this, see you all soon for more HK madness

Located in Admiralty, the Lippo Center, Hong Kong is a skyscraper. The lofty buildings are a pair of twin office towers. Once a property of Bond Corporation, it was known as the Bond Center. Later when the pair of buildings was taken over by the Lippo Group, it was renamed as Lippo Center, Hong Kong.
The taller of the two buildings of the Lippo Center, Hong Kong is hundred and eighty six meters tall. Designed by Paul Rudolph, an American architect, the buildings look like koalas clutching to a tree. Hence, this twin office towers is also known as "the Koala Tree" in Hong Kong. The construction of the Lippo Center, Hong Kong was completed in 1987. Due to its plaid history the local Chinese people believe that the building has a bad Feng Shui.
The Lippo Center, Hong Kong is ideally located to offer easy access to all parts of the city. The two lofty pair of buildings nestles in the center of the commercial district of the city. International banks, popular eateries, five star hotels and large shopping malls all line around the Lippo Center, Hong Kong
One of the most identified landmarks the Lippo Center, Hong Kong have two buildings. The shorter building has 44 floors and is one seventy two meter tall and the taller building with its 48 floors is one eighty six meters tall. The Lippo Center, Hong Kong houses a number of professional offices both national and international. A very modern building, the Lippo Center offers the latest gadgets as office technology.
Located at 89 Queensway in Hong Kong, the Lippo Center, Hong Kong is visited by a large crowd to witness its intriguing décor. Admiralty, which was once famous for housing the headquarters of British navy, is now famous for the skyscraper, Lippo Center, Hong Kong.
And it's a new morning in Hong Kong, a new relentless day!
I hope you enjoyed this update! see ya soon!!

The Buddha is named after Tian Tan which is the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, but is also known as Po Lin Buddha because it is an integral part of the Po Li Monastery. The monastery initially known as the Big Hut was founded in 1906 by Zen masters Da Yue, Dun Xiu and Yue Ming of the Jin Shan Monastery of Zhe Jiang Province. It is the major centre of Buddhism in Hong Kong and major tourist attraction, especially with the induction of the Buddha statue adjacent to the monastery.
Tian Tan Buddha, positioned on a lotus throne surrounded by eight smaller bronze statues resembling gods, oversees the monastery which is build on a plateau rising 2,330 feet above sea level. Buddha's expression appears majestic and tranquil, symbolising the congruent relationship between people, nature, and religion. Tian Tan Buddha is the only statue of its kind that gazes towards the North; all other Giant Buddha statues gaze towards the South. Due to its immense weight the statue is internally supported by a steel metal framework and the Buddha is positioned on a three-platform altar. The elevated position of the entire platform comprises of 268 steps.
In addition to the Buddha statue and the monastery, Ngong Ping village is a host of additional attractions including the Monkey's Tale Theatre and the Ngong Ping Tea House, so it is advisable to allow a full day for the trip to that small cultural village of Lantau Island. The Tung Chung station of the Mass-Transit Railway (MTR) or the ferry to Mui Wo (Silvermine Bay) from the Central Pier are the two available options for reaching the Island. Both Tung Chung and Mui Wo offer a bus service to Ngong Ping (services No.23 and No.2 respectively), but the best choice of transportation is the brand new Ngong Ping 360 (NP360) cable car from Tung Chung Town Centre. NP360 provides a 5.7km duplex link interconnecting Tung Chung and Ngong Ping, making it the ideal way of reaching Po Lin. The cable car offers two intermediate stations; one in Airport Island and one at Nei Lak Shan. Opening times for Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery are between 10:00am and 5:45pm and the admission fee is HK$60. The NP360 cable car service runs 10:00am to 6:00pm (Monday to Friday) and 10:00am to 6:30pm (Saturday and Sunday). More details, timetables, ticket prices and packages are available via the Ngong Ping 360 official website.
I think my City buildings skills are better now and i hope to :
-Have the real HK trams
-Have a Better placing scale
-More Life in general
Should I, or should I not? I would really like to hear what you think
Yet I have BATed 3 HK trams (texture variations), and by fidlind in LE I can find the Textures of the GLR and make something that looks good, saddly it's only Eye-Candy,
I am not the type of guy who requests anything, but if someone has the modding skills and would like to do it, then it's green to go, just comment here or PM me and i'll send you the Tram SC4.models or whatever it is you need
Samerton: Thank you
Tankmank: Yes, thnak you, but you know it'll still take some time
Lesgaz : Merci Beaucoup
And the rain came
And then the night came
And in the morning the rain continued over the city
Join me tommorow when we go and see Buddha!
ImVhOzzi : Thanks a lot!
Tankmank: Thanks for dropping by, sometime maxis buildings do appear
Samerton : Thanks!
Tigeria: ohh! you are a Connaisseur
HongKong: Hey thanks, I hope you like it!
If you want to go to the typical sights you see on postcards, you won't not be disappointed in Mongkok.
You should go in the evening after dark because then you can see the shop signs lit up in all kinds of Neon Lights in Chinese - just like what you see on postcards. It is in the heart of Kowloon and reachable by MTR.
See you next time for the full glam version of it!
Timmystwin - lol
YorkshireLlama - Really that's nice
Tankmank - Sorry not yet
tigeria - Oh thanks a lot man
ImVhOzzi - You'd better
Lesgaz - Non, je n'habite pas au Japon, mais juste a coté de la france!
jj88 - Thanks a lot
Samerton - thanks for dropping by
I said i'd be doing Mong Kok, and i studied the Google streetview and I saw that they're some building i'd need, so I'm currently BATing some Mong Kok blocks for the update day
Park Central at 9 Tong Tak Street in Tseung Kwan O is at the centre of the area's transportation network. The three-storey mall has 350,000 sq.ft. of total floor area and is next to the Tseung Kwan O MTR station. The mall contains a diverse mix of retailers and restaurants.
thepokemaniac : I already did it have a look in the earlier updates
Schulmanator : You →No Cats in HK
Tigeria : Thank you
Mastof : Yes quite a bit
the Duke : Thanks a lot
Tankmank : This not your update, it's up next
Capitalstar - It's the goal
This 80-storey commercial building, located at 99 Queen's Road Central, covers a site area of 8,816 sq m. The Center is largely devoted to office units with some retail at ground levels. The building has a splendid entrance hall on the sixth floor, while the 42nd floor is a skylobby which doubles as a viewing area. Other facilities include a day-nursery, public open spaces, landscaping areas and at least 350 parking spaces in the underground carpark.
The project used four 24 m caissons as the principal foundation. Each caisson was formed by 30 vertical slurry wall panels arranged in a circular section. Excavation was carried out in the middle, which transformed each caisson into a very big shaft. The slurry walls were excavated by a trench cutting machine known as the "hydrofraise", which uses bentonite slurry as the soil supporting agent as does normal diaphragm wall construction. The hydrofraise removes the excavated materials automatically from the trench and reuse the slurry afterward through the "desanding" process. The average depth of the 24 m diameter caissons was about 45 m. After excavation was completed to the required depth, a 4.5 m deep reinforced concrete raft resting on bedrock was constructed to take up the future loads of the building through a composite column cluster. Some of the parameter walls required for the basement excavation were constructed in the form of bore pile walls by rotary drilling method.
The basement and podium used reinforced concrete and composite columns, while the office tower used a structural steel frame; the best combination for the fast-track project - which originally had a 730-day contract period. The structural steel members for the tower came from Taiwan, the Philippines and Japan, and weighed about 32,000 tonnes altogether. It is also the first building of this size in Hong Kong constructed entirely in structural steel without any reinforced concrete inner core. In order to compensate for the loss in rigidity, the addition of complicated bracing members were required.
Due to the building's size and the congested urban environment, material delivery had been one of the major challenges in construction. As a result, a well-planned material delivery schedule prepared and updated under close coordination with the major suppliers and subcontractors had to be made from time to time. The project had also made use of four lifts, two material hoists, and four tower cranes, so that internal transportation can be maintained quickly and conveniently within the entire construction period.

In 1994 when Hong Kong decided to build the new aiport this hole places was planed and built. It isn't finished yet, the current population is of 22000 habitants, the expected population is 25000.
Here are some weird "things" inside the crescent
You can still see the rest of the old village of Tung Chung in the background
It quite often rains in Hong Kong, A typhoon soon, maybe ?.....
So that's it for Today's update , Tommorow we'll go back on Victoria Island.
I once addressed the possibility of making BAT's using sketchup in here. And yes I have found a way, so here it is
This is a thread tutorial I don't know where it stands ? But I hope to tell you how to open a SU file in Gmax you will need some programms for that, but they are free
You will need
1-Sketchup → which you already might have if not → http://sketchup.google.com/download/
2-Kerkythea echo edition → http://www.kerkythea.net/joomla/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=43
4-KT2OBj → http://www.nicetuna.com/kt2obj
5-Blender → http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/
6-GMAX&SC4 Bat → just look in the omnibus you know where to find it
7-Python 2,6 → http://python.org/download/
1-Kerkythea,Sketchup,Blender & GMAX – Simply install like any other programm on your PC
2-SU2KT- Download it and open the readme it wil tell you very well what to do
3-KT2OBJ- It comes as a zip, just unzip
4-GMAX &SC4 Bat look the omnibus
II- Let's go!
So the objetctif is to import this house sucsessfully into GMAX
If everything worked out correctly you should get the exporter sandbox
Export by clicking there! ( in the red square)
Save it to your Desktop (or wherever) At this point when it finishes it says open in Kerkythea, say no.
It will save you to things
TX_name (texture file)
ppffeww after all this hard work you need a break open kerythea and open your XML in Kerkythea
The right green man starts the render
The left countryside picture shows you your rendered image
--------------------------------------Step -2 -------------------------------------------
After this brief and very gratifying break it is time to get to work again
---------------------------------Step -3 Work in Blender-------------------------------------
Open up Blender and simply import the ,obj file
Now! Export as a 3ds. I tried DXF but the results were disapointing (No textures and the house is half done,) Export where Blender tells you to (most likely to work)
DXF – Autocad File
3ds - 3dmax file
--------------------------------Step 4 -------------------------
In GMAX – SC4 BAT
Simply locate and import your 3ds and there you a textured House!! ready for SC4MODEL export!
Just go okay on all it asks
So there you go ! now simply apply nightlights and export the SC4 model!
Look at the omnibus
I really hope it helped you
why can't i just import the DAE in Blender??
google has encrypted the DAE file on the Free version of sketchup. making it impossible to import in Blender
PS- You have to be careful in Skechup, If you want some good in GMAX be sure your Sketchup model is awesome.
Stuff like textured cubes from the warehoude won't work well at all. And for the love of god do not upload warehouse model without permission
Any other concerns,trouble and comments ay be posted on the thread http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=37&threadid=118035&STARTPAGE=1
Redscope is also making a tutorial, however it is different. but they both work and give results.
Samerton - thanks man!
Skimbo- i am happy you liked it there are more cars this time
Guibanez_ : thank you for your kind comment
Reikhardt : LOL! They are comin' to get ya'
hotChocolate : wow Thank you
Tigeria : thanks a lot!!!
Tung Chung Part-1 meaning 'eastern stream', is an area situated on the north-western coast of Lantau Island in hong Kong. Tung Chung, currently one of the latest generation of New towns, was formerly a rural village around Tung Chung Wan, and along the delta and lower courses of Tung Chung River and Ma Wan Chung in the north-western coast of Lantau Island. The area was once a major defense stronghold against pirates and foreign military during Ming and Qing dynasties
This is still under construction in hong Kong, But it is certainly as far as Hong Kong mega estates can go....or is it!
There are 13 high-rise towers in total. The towers of each phase are collectively named after a place in the caribbean. In deference to western and oriental superstitions there are no blocks 4, 13 or 14.
In Phase I during 2003 four towers were released; Monterey Cove 1, 2, 3, 5. Phase II released in 2004 had Albany Cove 6, 7, 8. In 2005, completion of four more towers including Carmel 9, 10, 11, 12 in Phase III. The name of Phase IV is omitted as taboo in Cantonese.
Phase V finished in 2007 conclude with the last two towers, Crystal Cove 15, 16.
All towers are about 170.0 m high and are 54 stories except for Monterey Cove 1 (which is only 164.0 m and hold 52 stories) and Albany Cover 6. Apartment sizes range from 636 to 1,295 sq ft (120.3 m2). Floor-to-floor height measures up to 9 ft 7 in (2.92 m) All units have balconies, except for those on 33rd floor and below in phase 1.
According to the latest amendment plan, a total of 56 houses will be built. Each house is 4-storey high and size from 3,000 sq ft (280 m2) to 3,800 sq ft (350 m2) each, attached with private ground garden. The original plan was to build 10 low-rise buildings as be part of Phase VI.
The clubhouse features many facilities, including a putting range, gym, swimming pool, function rooms, a silent reading room, and a bowling alley. Lessons in hobbies such as dancing and cooking are also provided.
Retail Floor Area : 4,996 m². Wet Market Floor Area: 508 m²
In 2005, the Lands Department issued a Waiver to allow the Wet Market to be combined as part of the supermarket.
Finally I leave you with a mosaic of the whole area
Bye for now, see ya soon

Land lease was granted to First Star Development, a joint-venture of New World Development and Wai Kee Holdings, at a tender price of HK$583 million. The land plot was sited for the construction of "Hunghom Peninsula". This was in compliance with the HKSAR Government's "Private Sector Participation Scheme" (PSPS), allowing private developers to build Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) flats conforming to certain specifications stipulated by the Government.
The towers are 40 floors high
Some info from economists and project devloppers
The flat sale price of $38,000/m2 net ($3,021 psf gross) was arrived at by comparison with transactions in Royal Peninsula, a nearby development with Occupation Permit (OP) issued in December 2000 and Phases 4 & 9 of Whampoa Gardens, the closest phases of that
development to Hung Hom Peninsula, with OPs of December 1987 and December 1988.
Royal Peninsula is a high quality development with luxurious finishes. Despite OP having been issued in December 2000, the developers were still selling units in the latter part of 2003 and the prices averaged about $52,700/m2 ($3,890 psf gross). Flats in Whampoa
Gardens (15 storeys over one storey of lobbies/shops) were fetching an average of about $32,000/m2 net ($2,620 psf gross).
Even with upgrading, the Hung Hom Peninsula flats would be well below the standard of the Royal Peninsula and although new, the
design is akin to that of the older Whampoa Gardens. Accordingly, a rate of $38,000/m2 for Hung Hom Peninsula was considered appropriate.
Tommorow I hope to at last to the Part 2 in the Wanchai District. "Until then take care!" Jeremy Clarkson

If malls had star ratings, Hong Kong Pacific Place shopping mall would be a five star. This is one of Hong Kong top 5 shoping mall .The Hong Kong Pacific Place mall is a dazzling selection of upmarket, international boutiques from Armani to Versace and just about everything in between. This is not the place for a bargain, nor is it the place to haggle, but if you’re looking for something fresh from the fashion shows of Paris and London this is the place to come. You’ll also find top notch hangbag and jewellery shops, although these also tend to be international rather than Chinese or Asian.
The all also has some equally impressive, and expensive, restaurants, including the excellent Zen, ideal for Dim Sum, and Thai Basil. The mall is also home to Hong Kong’s only Dan Ryan’s outlet, often packed with businessmen pouring over the Wall Street Journal or US expats holding reunions. You’ll also find a pair of five star hotels, the Island Shangri-La and JW Mariott and a cinema.
Well that's it for this little update see you soon for Wanchai Part 2

Blakeway : Werner Panton style to be precise
It can roughly be divided into three sections: the new northern section along theHarbor & the mid section, and the southern section at the foothill..
- 374 metres to the top of the spire, 78 storeys with 58 storeys office space
- Reinforced concrete
- 720 tonnes covering 40,060 square metres (area equivalent to 9 standard football
- 50,000 square metres (area equivalent to 11 standard football pitches)
- 39 computerized high-speed lifts
- Total working population in the building is about 6,000
