Thanks a lot for the comments ! :)

I'm in a SC4 mood these days ! Well, Maxime (Citymax) just gave me an amazing prop pack, with railway and French inspired models, so basically I spent my sunday working on it :D

More of his work here : http://www.toutsimcities.com/downloads/search/user:6552 (This prop pack is not released yet)

So here is Montbard, I really had no idea what name to give to that town, so why not ? Enjoy the HD props !

The file size is quite large for the mosaics (4,5mo & 8mo), so it might takes some time to load, but I really wanted to keep the quality of the picture !

Update, again ? Well actually some of you might already know this one, for some reasons I forgot to upload it here... But I have a mosaic to go with the other 20 pictures !

So here is a second update for Beacon Hill. After the Canadian MMPs, back with some growing action !

I'm working on the next entry which is almost ready, so stay tuned ! All I can tell you is that I just discovered a new amazing prop pack ! :)

And again, thanks a lot for the comments !

Thanks for the comments :)

Lets continue our trip to the old mine, still on Kinbasket Lake ! :)

I'll post two updates for this.

1

1365434740-0-5.jpg

2 - The main buildings of the old coal mine were converted into a refuge for tourists and hikers. It gives the illusion that the mine is still used.

1365434621-2.jpg

3 - For that matter, docks were established a few years ago.

1365434652-15.jpg

4

1365434655-3.jpg

5 - The railway is still used by a small train that makes the junction once a week.

1365434661-5.jpg

6

1365434653-6.jpg

7

1365434655-7.jpg

8 - You can also join the old mine with a seaplane, sure not the cheapest way to do so !

Thanks a lot for the comments ! :)

Another side project, new style, not much time to play on Coos Bay, even if I made great progress at the begining of December. Coos Bay CBD is almost done !

I now have a second plugins folder, with US stuff only, less than 1Go so I can run it on any computer.

Here is my first city with this folder : Beacon Hill.

Happy New Year !

Thanks a lot for the comments, replies in the previous update !

Here we are, this is the presentation of my new project ! :)

It's been quite some times now that I work on random tiles, and you don't want to know how my region looks like, from Chiesa Nuova, to Daventry Town, including Amazraou, French Riviera, urban and rural scenes, Oglio river etc... Yes, this is a big mess ! :)

I miss working on a region, with a global layout, region views etc... So the project is quite simple, to make a nice region !

You know me, this is not gonna be mass zoning. I want a detailed and functional region !

About the style, It's gonna be close from what you saw in Daventry Town. Some Euro-American mix.

I'll work on Coos Bay from Izidor, and I'll keep the name cause I love it. That being said, I'm not gonna reprduce at all the real Coos Bay in Oregon ! :)

I'll use Lowkee's terrain mod and Gobias new beaches.

1 - SC4 Terraformer render of the region.

1352379341-coos-bay-1024.png

2 - Here is the map, the way I want to work on the region, with the limits of SC4 in mind. Of curse I'm just starting so this is gonna evolve. Feel free to give me advices about that !

1352388238-city-plan-2.jpg

3 - Here is a teaser ! Yes I started with the CBD, just to work on the layout, terraforming, marina and some plopped buildings. I'll now work on the surroundings to make sure I have a big demand when I'll be back to work on the CBD.

Hi everyone !

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Few words about me :

My name is Benoit, and I'm a french guy from Paris !

It has been quite some time now that I post updates on the french forums and also on SC4 Devotion, but so far, I was just a lurker here on Simtropolis !

Some of you might already know me and my work, but others will not so I will also post pictures from my older work ! :golly:

Why Med Inspirations ? Well my work was mainly focused on what I saw arround the Mediterranean Sea at the beginning, but to be honest, I'm inspired by a lot of other things !

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the first entry.

This is inspired by the french town "Saint-Tropez" located on the french riviera. This not a reproduction, just an inspiration ! :D

Hope you'll enjoy it !

See you soon with a lot more !

And as I am new here, two questions :

- Do i need to do something to be on the home page of Simtropolis ?

- What does the Entry Image exept being in front of the text ?! :D
