Small forward



It's 4:00 AM, and I, very vicious with this, my first 3D model of my life. Believe me (or I believe),
I never thought I could do this, because my pc is oldStart with this 3 days ago.
First, it was learning how to $%&^! how to make a simple box! Then, with some ingenuity, I could start to shape it.



When I saw this walking, start all over again, trying to be as orderly as possible, and there it goes. I plan to do everything in the flat and then give it height, build the sides (which I have seen are very detailed). Aaaaa the textures... the UV Mapper, all these thing drives me carzy..









And well. Nothing. Jajaja. In the end I will need some modeler with a powerful computer so that it can render as many polygons, if someone offers, enchanted (? Ah, y maeby tomorrow post a new entry about Battery Park City, now that I know modeler, umm

Bye Bye!

The Staten Island Ferry is a river ferry service operated by the New York City Department of Transportation between Manhattan Island and Staten Island district.

The ferry departs every half hour from Whitehall quay, next to Battery Park, and docked at the pier Saint George. The service, uninterrupted throughout the year, is free, and follows a path 8 kilometers lasting 25 to 30 minutes.

The trip takes place along the bed of the Hudson River and offers panoramic views of "The Big Apple" phrase that sports journalist John J. Fitz Gerald described the city of New York in the twenties. In its route you can be seen views of the Statue of Liberty, the famous architectural skyline of Manhattan and the Verrazano Bridge.


The service carries about 19 million passengers per year, ie about 60,000 daily tourists and inhabitants of the two banks. Altogether eight ferries carried about 33 000 annual trips, ie, about 109 a day.


The story line goes back to the eighteenth century when transporting passengers from one district to another was made in small private boats. For a long period the service was in charge of the Richmond Turnpike Company, but because of a serious accident happened on June 14, 1901, its management was transferred to the city council of New York.


The shuttle has been coated paramount to the current tourism sector of the city, it has gone from being a common means of transport almost become an icon of New York, with repeated appearances in films and television series.


Nestled at the southern most corner of Battery Park, right along the water's edge, lies a Manhattan oasis called Battery Gardens - a restaurant with sweeping panoramic views of glorious New York Harbor, including historic Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty. 
Go for the amazing view and stay for the delicious fare at this Battery Park gem with its streamlined interior decor and its one-of-a kind outdoor dining experience. It's a great way to spend any part of your day.

Battery Park, NY

Hi Simtropolitans!

Today, I will start sharing this recreacion that began some months ago. I will seek information about the various places of the city, to know better this amazing New york, hand SC4.

Many of the buildings and monuments do not have in st exchangue, and there are things I had to imagine and devise, to have a greater similarity. However, I must say that thanks to the amount of bats recreated to perfection by the many fans of SC4, motivated me to want to know, and recreate the city.

Let's start with Battery Park
I hope you enjoy                         


Battery Park is a park of 10 hectares (25 acres) located south of Manhattan bordering Financial District. It is the most important green space that includes the best view of the city of New York as the Statue of Liberty. Derives its name from the row of cannons in the seventeenth century, the British placed along State Street.

Intersection between Broadway, Battery Pl, and State Streets.

It also has a full tour of monuments with historical texts that allow tourists to learn more about the history of the city, and other statues. Among the most important monuments, it noted the Clinton Castle, completed in 1811, today used for ticket sales ferries for trips to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, formerly was used as an aquarium, and its earliest beginnings was used as strong for the invaders attacks.

You can also find there Sphere, a metal structure that was formerly simply ornamenta in the area of the twin towers and today, along with an eternal flame, is a monument in memory of those who lost their lives in the attack September 11. It is the East Coast Memorial, a sculpture in the form of eagle that honors the memory of those who died in World War II and more structures.

Because of its location in front of the Statue of Liberty and comfortable view also offers its benches, the park is also used for concerts and activities.

When should be Castle Clinton

To the northwest is the neighborhood of Battery Park City, a planned community built between 1970 and 1980. Along with the Hudson River Park, a system of bicycle paths and walkways extending to the shore of the Hudson River. A bike path is being built through the park, connecting the Hudson River and the East River.
