Update 22 - Higashikagura

Thanks guys! :wub:

Okay guys, today we are going to see the town of Higashikagura 東神楽町. The idea with this town was to mix commie style ( remember Vorkuta? The town with the mines and blocks) and the Japanese style.

Well here is what I got. Only pictures of the town for now.

Thank you guys for the comments! :wub:

Ahah! Time for an update!

I got my new computer two days ago~ Though it took me some time to settle as I had to install windows all over again..

Going from a Pentium E5300 dual core @ 2.6Ghz with a Radeon HD4300 to a Fx8360 Eight cores @ 4Ghz with a GTX 650.... That's ... AWESOME.

I like it! For a budget build it performs well! Still have to test it in 3dsmax, but that'll wait a bit, I'm having trouble installing it...

Performs well in game as well, everything maxed out, it's a pleasure!

Except for SC4, in a dense forest with the shadows it still lags a bit.. But that's not a big deal.

Though I'm having a small issue. My graphic card [ MSI GTX 650] has three ports. One DVI-I, one DVI-D and one display port. My main screen uses the DVI-I port. My second screen being VGA I always used a VGA->DVI-I adapter, but now seeing as the only other DVI port is a -D I had to use others adapter. Which are VGA to HDMI and HDMI to Display port [ adapter on adapter....]

Now comes the problem. Both windows and Nvidia detect the screen. BUT it remains black and the power LED is orange as in inactive display powered on. I can get my mouse on that screen space but I have no image at all.

As I'm pretty sure that the adapterXadapter is the problem, if anyone has an idea on this matter, if not it's no big deal I'll buy a 2euros adapter to work.

Anyway on the proper update! Today we are going to see another part of Nishi-ku [西区] Which you already have seen. I'm sure you'll remember.

hello!

Thanks for the comments guys! :wub:

So today, we're coming back to Saeki-ku [佐伯区] ward, in the area which is in the mountains. You can see it on the region view, it's the flattened land at the top of the mountains, left of the region!

Thanks guys!

The tsutentaku tower sure is in Osaka, but I had to test it so it was put in my city. Also I've never said I was making a perfect re-creation.. ;)

Okay today kind of a special update. In fact no pictures, but a video!

Don't hesitate to like the video! :)

Well I hope you liked this update.

Update 13 - South Naka-ku

Hello guys! Thanks for the warm comments! :wub:

Today we've got an update from the very south of Naka-ku district. [中区] The name means Central Ward because it envelops the central area around the castle and the atomic dome. Though this not-so central ward also extends to the bay at the south, where the update is located. In this area is located the terminus of one of many Hiroshima's tram lines.

Hello !

First let me apology for missing the update yesterday. I was sick the entire week end ( massive headache, sneezing etc) Yesterday when going back to school, I made some quick modding on something, and then I had literally no inspiration in Simcity. You know, you end up in the region view doing nothing but glaring at your cities from far away. Then decide to open a tile but to end up not knowing what to do... it's frustrating.

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated! :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

Okay guys, today we've got some more pictures from Hiroshima! Just some things to say, not much. The area along the rail line is old. Once the new station is finished, there will be a massive redevelopment plan going on here.

Update 10 - Fuchū-chō

Hello! Thank you for the comments guys! :wub: :wub:

slvrlakesmoke - thank you! I found the cherry trees part of This pack by ねこぱんち (see bottom for dependencies).. But as MMPs they are from Uki-san Here on his blog.

TekindusT, Please get it together if you want to drop it again. :rofl:

MNUSpidey, thanks for your comment! I love Danchis. Their look and the standard floor plan they have is everything I want. Simple one piece flat with a nice view [preferably on a railway].. Hmm I'd like that so much. Actually I'm going to start learning Japanese soon ( little by little, I already know some phrases, thanks to Anime and mangas ahah, though that is not enough. ) and maybe one day I'll move to Hokkaido~

Thanks everyone for the input about the image hosting. I'll try both Majhost and Photobucket later.

Okay now place for the update!

Today we are going to see the area of Fuchū-chō. [ 府中町 ] It is located est of Central Hiroshima. Both commuter and Shinkansen line pass through this area. In this area is located the factory and headquarter of Mazda. ( not featured in the update, maybe in the next one )

Sorry, but the weather was not sunny today. In fact it rained a lot.

Question time!

I'm curious to know: How do you usually watch mosaics? Do you go through slowly, or come back to catch something, or something else?

Hope you like this update guys!

Have a good evening/day!

Image shack is driving me nuts.... Does anyone have a better solution for image hosting? Free, space limit should not be under 500Mb ( for the moment it is far enough for me, i haven't made more than 700Mb of pictures in years...)

Okay guys, today we are going to see the shinkansen depot in Yaga. [矢賀] As Yaga is a poor district of Hiroshima, it is mainly composed of Danchi Wiki link.

Okay guys, today we are leaving the small areas to get in the suburbs. Well more where the suburbs starts to be precise, in Asaminami-ku (安佐南区). This update is located just north of the Central Station ( which I still have to create, uh. Guess that will be my next BAT.).

So lets enjoy the pictures.

Update 5 - Tōgejima

Hello everyone. :)

Today is a great day. Why? Because I am in my fifth addition to SC4D's OSITM!

Art12810-12-ed1.jpg

There's a typo, it's being corrected~

Waow, I'm all excited! :wub:

So without any further wait, lets start this month shall we?

Ah! But first let me tell you what you are going to except during the month.

Firstly updates. Lots of updates! I'll try to post one each two days! [according I have the time] Also a video [not telling anything more!] is in the work for somewhere in the second half of the month. More updates, and of course my station! I'll try to get to release it before the 31st on the LEX (and STEX at the same time)! [yeap]

Ah, now the update for tonight.

We are not far from the last update. Actually we are on the small island of Tōgejima [峠島] Which is IRL not populated or really a few people ( maybe some shrine maiden, not sure) So yeah this small island is located just east of Ninoshima! The island is connected to the Hiroshima Ferry Service, which serves most of the bay area. [Hiroshima, Ninoshima, Tōgejima, Miyama and Itsukushima (where the famous shrine is located!)]

Let's see what I have for you concerning the pictures:

Thanks for the replies guys! :wub:

Today we are going to see the town called Ninoshimacho, located on the Ninoshima island. the name of the island means "island similar to Fuji", as Ninoshima has a similar appearance and shape.

Update 3 - Nishi centre

Hello everyone, thanks for the comments! :wub:

NMUSpidey - How said I was going to do Itsukushima? :D Actually, the shrine is out of the region. I mean the region I use does not cover its area... But I can try to integrate it somewhere else, who knows.. :ninja: But one thing for sure I'll not do it soon. First I have to make some progress in the city centre, and that is not fast doing!

Okay today only four pictures from an area north of the airport, what is actually the centre of Nishi.

thanks for the comments guys! :wub:

So, well today we're going to see some pictures from the area around HiroshimaNishi airport, the old one with is not used anymore today. They're planning to build an heliport from the current section ( i think at the end of the runway near the sea).. But no announcement for the other part, industrial area? Residential area? commercial? park? golf course? I have no idea. I'll not destroy it until I have more information about what they're going to do. :???:

:P

Anyway, less talk more pictures.

Update 1 - HD suburbs

Hello Simtropolis! :wub:

Today I decided to start my CJ over here once again.

So well my aim is to create a semi accurate re-creation of Hiroshima and its surrounding.. Uhm what can i say more.. Well...... ;_;

lets get started by just four pictures shall we? ^_^

imageseule1000.jpg

19558028.jpg

76067719.jpg

And that's all! These are the most up to date pictures !

Okay I also have a very important question. :???:

...

How do I into mosaic here at ST? o.O

I usually split them into many 1000*500 pictures for better loading time at Deovotion, and as I don't want to upload each time the full version ( which can be really heavy if the mosaic is long) I'm asking you, how ?I tried here before but I got a space between each pictures, which is quite annoying. :cry:
