    Chicago

    Today, we're traveling to Chicago - the Windy City - to take a look at a number of this city's most iconic landmarks, from the past to the present. We'll start off with a look at one of the city's great railroad terminals - Grand Central Station. Built in 1890, stations like these helped to transform the city into one of the most important railroad centers in all of North America. Here we see a scene from its heyday in the early 1930s - unfortunately due to dwindling passenger numbers, the entire station was razed in 1971. Completed in 1925, the 462 foot tall neo-Gothic Tribune Tower quickly became one of the city's most famous skyscrapers. When it opened in 1930, the massive 4,000,000 square foot Merchandise Mart was the world's largest building and became an important retail destination. We move forward to present day to visit the home of the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs - historic Wrigley Field. Nicknamed "The Friendly Confines", this legendary ballpark has been home to the Cubs since 1914 and is well known for its ivy covered outfield walls, hand operated scoreboard, and rooftop bleachers across the street. Located in Grant Park, Adler Planetarium can be found overlooking the city's beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. Since opening in May 1930, its been one of the city's most popular tourist attractions ever since. In the suburb of Plano is where you'll find the famed Farnsworth House, located on the banks of the Fox River. Designed and constructed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between 1945 and 1951, it's one of the area's most unique sights. Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago's 3,300 foot long Navy Pier has been one of the city's most popular attractions for nearly a century. Centennial Wheel stands nearly 200 feet tall and is an iconic part of the city's skyline. A view of the Chicago Loop and River North districts. Trump International Hotel and Tower can be seen soaring above the skyline in the lower half of the picture - built in 2009, it's the city's 2nd tallest building and reaches heights of nearly 1,400 feet. Towards the top is a view of Millennium Park, which features a number of landmarks such as Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Wrigley Square, and the highly reflective Cloud Gate. A look over over Chicago's Magnificent Mile district, which features a number of the city's tallest buildings - such as the John Hancock Center, 900 North Michigan, Water Tower Place, and Park Tower. The Chicago Water Tower can be seen as well - built in 1869, it's the United States' second oldest water tower and is well known for surviving the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. One last view of downtown Chicago, featuring the city's tallest and 3rd tallest buildings - the iconic Willis (Sears) Tower and Aon Center.

    Rio de Janeiro

    Located on Brazil's Atlantic shoreline, Rio de Janeiro is widely recognized as one of the world's most beautiful cities. Between the perfect beaches, iconic landmarks, tropical weather, and friendly residents - there's plenty of reasons to visit and enjoy this one of a kind destination. The city was founded back in 1565 by the Portuguese - and its strategic location on Guanabara Bay allowed it to become an important port city throughout the years. Since then, the city has expanded greatly and nearly 14 million people now live in its metropolitan area. Rio is a city known for its income inequality - while luxurious apartments dot the shoreline, favelas can be found hugging the steep mountainsides. Rio's Jardim Botânico (Botanical Gardens) are a popular attraction in the city and are known for showcasing a wide variety of trees and plants - including over 900 different varieties of palm trees. The Christ the Redeemer statue at the top of Corcovado Mountain is the city's most iconic landmark - it's become a cultural icon over the years as well and is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The iconic Maracanã Stadium comes to life at nighttime - the home of Brazil's national football team since 1950, it's one of the world's most famous stadiums. Famed Sugarloaf Mountain is located at the mouth of Guanabara Bay and is known for its resemblance to a loaf of concentrated cane sugar. Cable cars take tourists and locals right up to the top and offer incredible panoramas of the city. Rio is known for its beautiful beaches and Copacabana Beach is one of the city's best. From New Year's Eve celebrations, FIFA Beach Soccer World Cups, concerts, and more - it's become a destination that's known the world over. One last look at Copacabana Beach and busy Atlantic Avenue during one of Rio's beautiful sunsets.

    Melbourne

    Melbourne is the capital of Australia's Victoria territory - and with nearly 5 million residents, it's also the country's second largest city. Known for being one of the world's most livable cities, it features plenty of things to do and see - from famous attractions, historic landmarks, and scenic sites. Today we'll be taking a look at this amazing city. Our tour of the city begins with a scene from the past - Melbourne's Flinders Street Station in the early 1900s. Opening in 1910, it quickly became one of the city's most important and iconic railway stations - and the surrounding streets were constantly busy and bustling. Although not quite as hectic these days, the station still remains as one of the city's most important transportation hubs. Located in Yarra Park, the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground has been home to the Melbourne Football Club since 1858 and Australia's national cricket team since 1877. The 394 foot tall Melbourne Star ferris wheel can be found in the city's popular Dockland district and offers spectacular views of the city. The Yarra Valley is just a short drive from the city and is known for producing some of Australia's finest wines. A late summer evening in the suburbs of Melbourne. The Shrine of Remembrance is located in the city's King Domain parklands and was opened in 1934 as a tribute to honor the men and women of Victoria who served in World War I. The Arts Centre Melbourne is a performing arts center located in Southbank and features a number of important theatres and concert halls. The centre's distinctive spire rises over 500 feet tall and is extraordinary at nighttime. Melbourne is a city with a wide range of architectural styles, from old to new. Here we see the famous Neoclassical State Library of Victoria - built in 1856, it's gone through a number of renovations through the years and has become one of the world's largest exhibiting libraries. Right across the street is the modern Melbourne Central Shopping Centre - complete with a 690 foot tall office tower, it's become one of the city's premier destinations. A view of the eastern end of the CBD, featuring a number of the city's tallest skyscrapers such as Nauru House, 101 Collins Street, and 120 Collins Street. One final mosaic showcasing the city's iconic skyline, featuring skyscrapers such as Eureka Tower and the Rialto Towers.

    Australia

    Today, we're taking a trip down under to experience some of Australia's most iconic natural wonders - and we'll also be visiting a number of sights across the country's vast Outback. We'll begin with a visit to the legendary Great Barrier Reef, located on the country's northeastern shoreline. Stretching over 1,600 miles long, it's not just the world's largest coral reef but also the worlds largest living organism. The reef's rich biodiversity is unparalleled with nearly 10,000 marine species calling it home - and has become well known for its vibrant display of colors. In recent years however, the reef has taken a massive hit from rising temperatures and coral bleaching. Many of the reef's most famous species like the giant clam are dying out and other parts of the reef have become unrecoverable. Byron Bay has some of the country's premier beaches - located in northern New South Wales, it's known the world over for its excellent surfing and near-perfect weather. Australia is a country known for its wildlife - and the iconic Kangaroo is one of the country's most famous mammals. With over 50 different native species, they can be seen in grasslands, forests, and even in parts of the Outback. While much of the Outback is barren and empty - you can still find the occasional farm among the rural dirt roads that cross the landscape. Windmills are vital here to power many of the Outback's cattle stations. After traveling across the vast southern Outback - we finally reach the The Pinnacles, located in Nambung National Park in Western Australia. These weathered limestone formations make for an other-worldly landscape and have become one of Australia's most well-known tourist attractions. In addition to its beauty, the Outback is also known for its natural resources. Gold and other valuable resources are mined in massive open pit strip mines like Kalgoorlie's Super Pit. We venture even deeper into the Outback to visit a few more of Australia's most iconic rock formations. Karlu Karlu (Devil's Marbles) are located in Northern Territory's Red Centre - these giant rounded boulders are one of the country's most unique sights. Kata Tjuta - or the Olgas - can be found in the southern part of the Northern Territory and are another one of the Outback's signature sights. Meaning "many heads" to the Australian Aborigines, these rounded domes are both imposing and mysterious. Our last stop today is one of the country's most iconic natural wonders - the stunning Uluru (Ayers Rock), which dramatically rises 1,142 feet out of the Outback. Uluru is the original aboriginal name for the area - and it has no specific meaning behind it. They believed that the rock has a great spiritual meaning - and was created at the dawn of time. To this day, those visiting it are urged not to climb the rock out of respect to these beliefs - and taking photographs of certain areas is also strongly urged against.

    Pacific Northwest

    The Pacific Northwest is a geographic region of the northwest United States - and also usually encompasses the southwestern part of Canada as well. Well known for its majestic mountains, lush forests, modern cities, and more - there's plenty here to keep you in awe. Today we'll be taking a look at some of the area's most spectacular sights. Our trip begins in scenic Olympic National Park - located in western Washington, this vast wilderness is one of the world's best preserved temperate rain forests. The Pacific Northwest is home to a number of major cities like Portland - also known as the City of Roses. The Old Town's White Stag Sign is one of the skyline's most distinctive and recognizable landmarks. An overview of downtown Portland featuring the KOIN Center, Wells Fargo Center, and the U.S. Bancorp Tower. Our next stop is the Emerald City - Seattle. The famed Space Needle offers incredible views of the city - built for the 1962 World Fair, it quickly became the city's most iconic landmark. Safeco Field, home of MLB's Seattle Mariners since 1999. A look at downtown Seattle at night with a few of it's most iconic skyscrapers in view - such as the Columbia Center, Seattle Municipal Tower, and the Smith Tower. We travel north of the border to visit one more of the Pacific Northwest's most iconic cities, Vancouver. Scenes like the one below are common here - with the city core being filled with countless modern glass condominiums. A look at downtown Vancouver - the large Bentall Centre is one of the city's most popular destinations. We start heading South to take a look at some of the Pacific Northwest's most amazing natural wonders, starting with Washington's majestic Mount Rainier. Rising 14,411 feet tall, it's the tallest point in the Cascades and can be seen all the way from Seattle, nearly 100 miles way. Rising 11,249 feet tall, Mount Hood is Oregon's highest peak and is another one of the region's most impressive mountains. Our last destination is one of America's most prized natural wonders, Oregon's Crater Lake. After the eruption of Mount Mazama nearly 8,000 years ago, the caldera filled up with rain water and snow melt - giving it a mesmerizing azure hue.

    The beginnings of 'the big' tile, it's finally time to develop a city with lots customized by me first step is the big transport networks and wow has the NAM came a long way since I was a kid. Los Angeles and Washington DC/DC Suburb inspired, maybe I'll make a CJ, but it's going to take a while This is basically the infamous 110 being recreated loosely here - the massive freeway nicknamed 'The 10' that cuts through Los Angeles, and causes many traffic induced headaches even outside the typical "rush hour."

    432 Park Avenue is a residential skyscraper in New York City that overlooks Central Park. Originally proposed to be 1,300 feet (396.2 meters) in 2011, the structure topped out at 1,396 ft (425.5 m). It was developed by CIM Group and features 125 condominium apartments. Construction began in 2012 and was completed on December 23, 2015. As completed, 432 Park Avenue is the third tallest building in the United States, and the tallest residential building in the world.It is the second-tallest building in New York City, behind One World Trade Center, and ahead of the Empire State Building. It is also the first, and so far only, building in New York City outside the World Trade Center Complex to be taller than the original twin towers. The skyscraper has received mixed reviews from both professionals and laymen alike since not everyone agreed with the artistic value of the building. The building has been maligned by some city residents since they believe it represents New York's increasing cost of living and ostentatious wealth. 432 Park's association to wealth inequality was also remarked upon by the building's architect himself, Rafael Viñoly, who commented that "There are only two markets, ultraluxury and subsidized housing." Fashion consultant Tim Gunn described the building as "just a thin column. It needs a little cap." Architecture critic of the New York Mag, Justin Davidson, said that the building is nothing more than just "stacked cubbyhole units" and questioned the creative value of the building.

    Update 45c: 2018 Holiday Travel Report

    first I have to say this entry basically a repost of the Update 46a from SC4 Devotion since it show similar situation but in different time so expect some pictures are similar with from that update. If you wonder yes this is the annual update I make about the holiday homecoming traffics in Karasem which I made annually since 2012 (although I skipped 2013 and 2015). Update 45c: 2018 Holiday Traffic Report Introduction: As it's 1 days before Idul Fitri in Karasem, many people go to their hometown to celebrate ied with their big families. most of the travelers come from major cities like Meriah, Cibebek and Kota Baru toward hometown. as for 2017 data from both Cibebek Metropolitan Area and Meriah Metropolitan Area, about 32% of travelers go to Central Cikulon Province (Capital Purwasari), 27% to South Cikulon Province (Capital: Tanjung Bambu), 20% go to Kasemetapang Province and other places in Northern Islands 18% toward various places in North Cikulon Province (Capital: Meriah) and the rest go to other provinces. The tradition also occurs in other places in Karasem but mostly in Western Karasem which is much more populated than eastern part. Map of western Karasem in case of wondering. This year prediction, the peak of the hometown bound traffic happened in Day-3 (12/6 Tuesday) as for today (Day-1) the traffic has decreased but not significant enough to compare it with the normal non holiday season intercity traffics in Karasem. For the anticipation beforehand, National government from Ministry of Transportation and Ministry of Public Works launch additional services such as extra train trip from Major cities stations, ticket discounts, advanced traffic management planning, until the the launching of the functional-only-serviceless-highways. Big Trucks except for fuel, food trucks as well as the minor trucks are banned from the main road and Expressways in 1 week (10/6-17/6) during the eid holiday season in order to avoid additional congestion in roads. First report came from the Air Transportation. As seen in Kota Meriah International Airport (KMIA) the passenger traffic increased by 19% compared to yesterday despite its only 1 day before the eid. According to several passengers, they decide to come back closer to eid using air transportation because of their workplaces tight schedule where they didn't get additional holiday for eid. Some other also prefers to travel in the last day before eid to avoid the peak back in their hometown From Kota Meriah International Airport Next, we go to the Cibebek Raya Station to check the rail transport from the main station of Cibebek Metropolitan Area. Passengers come with their family few hours before the trains departing, some of them waiting in the front of station as well as the intercity train platform. Today its predicted to be 21,728 passengers to depart from this station to their hometown, lower than yesterday which is 23,493. Earlier this morning, Karasem President Widjojo Raharjo alongside with officials from Minister of Transportation visited the station to monitor the situation as well as greet the people who are going back to their hometown. This year is the first year that full double track between Meriah to Kota Baru operating during holiday season which hope to increase the number of trips of intercity trains as well as reducing the number of delays on the trip. As for station itself, platform allocation for the Intercity Trains increased by disabling the Kota Baru-Cibebek Line Feeder during the Eid season. However, Cibebek Railway stated that the commuter/local train service will remains normally operates only with reduced feeder line. Situation in Cibebek Raya Station Now the report of road transportation which dominated by the personal motor vehicles like Sedans and SUVs. First toward the Report from Sumber Rejo Toll Gate of Meriah-Kota Baru Expressway in Kemayoran, North Cikulon Province. Congestion reported about 4km from the toll gate in Meriah direction as well as 3km in Kota Baru direction, which is better than yesterday up to 10km queue length. in order to relief the congestion, toll road operators, add aditional gate instead of 12 normally available into 15 in single direction as well as the "pay before toll gate" services. Currently its been advised that the travelers from Cibebek-Kota Baru area who want to go toward Purwasari to use the eastern coast route which is less used than west coast route of Cikulon in order to relief the traffic in Sumberrejo and later Kedawung in Malang Bawah. Meriah-Kota Baru Expressway itself is rather special than other highway/expressway around Karasem where they been used heavily in both direction in every holiday season because its connect 2 major metropolitan area in Karasem which is Kota Baru-Cibebek Metropolitan Area with Meriah Metropolitan Area. Traffic in the Meriah-Kota Baru Expressway on Sumber Rejo IC about 2km west of Sumber Rejo Toll Gate. Meanwhile from the non-expressway Karasem National Main Route 1, traffic reported in moderate condition. however when entering Kemayoran City center, heavy traffic reported. Situation in Karasem National Route 1 in Sumberrejo, Kemayoran. Meanwhile from the East Coast Route (Karasem National Route 5) of Cikulon in Trimurjo, south of Kemayoran situation reported with light but rather dense traffic for south bound direction. Travelers using this route as an alternative to the western coast route (Karasem National Route 1) to go to Purwasari or other areas in eastern coast of Cikulon Situation in Eastern Cikulon Coast Route Next we go to Kedawung area which become the worst nuisance on last 2 year holiday season traffic where last year happened to be the worst happened. Kedawung is a town in south of Malang Bawah City, North Cikulon which currently the end of West Cikulon Expressway (currently Meriah-Malang Bawah Expressway) where its used mostly from every traveler from Meriah or even Cibebek who want to travel toward Central and South Cikulon Province. Currently the traffic jam at 6km long toward Malang Bawah JCT, intersection of the partially finished Malang Bawah-Purwasari Expressway which is much better than during the peak this year (14km) or the worst last year (23km). The operation of Malang Bawah-Purwasari Expressway and functionally-opened unfinished section of this expressway help to distribute the traffic toward Purwasari. Main problem of this traffic is the meeting with the national route traffic which is rather congested, the existence of "pasar tumpah" in Kedawung town center as well as the railway crossing nearby the exit. Currently local officers manage the traffic by diverting the traffic from Central Cikulon toward Malang Bawah into the Kedawung Bypass in the west of the city although this solution just temporary until the completion of Malang Bawah-Purwasari Expressway in late 2019. Traffic Jam in the Kedawung exit of Meriah-Malang Bawah Expressway. Next are the reports from the recently finished part of Malang Bawah-Purwasari Expressway. The situation much better than last year where the usable unfinished part of this expressway opened for functional only. However since this expressway isn't completely finished yet, people still need to use non-expressway main road after the operating part or choose to use unfinished part of expressway which is rather low in safety and other road aspects including its very dusty condition and bumpy roads. The operating part of the Malang Bawah-Purwasari expressway in Pegajuran District, Malang Bawah Regency. Another opened section of the expressway near the border of Malang Bawah and Malang Atas Regency. Next report is from the Cikopo Area in North Cibebek Regency. Cikopo area previously known as the traffic jam area on every year holiday season for the travelers heading toward Tanjung Pojok port to cross to Ketapang Province. With the completion of Cikopo-Tanjung Pojok section of Cibebek-Tanjung Pojok Expressway in April 2015, the traffic not a major problem in this area except for the toll gate pay in this area. Queue of Cikopo Toll Gate featuring National Route 1 (as Cibebek-Tanjung Pojok Main Road) Last, we go to the Tanjung Pojok Port where the travelers toward Ketapang crossing from Cibebek Province. Tanjung pojok port operate additional dock for the car ferry which total currently 6 docks operating in this ferry crossing. as for yesterday the peak, the port crossed about 19,340 cars and buses with total passanger is 170,289 people crossed adding the motorcycle and pedestrian users. situation in Tanjung Pojok Ferry Port Thats all for today hope you all enjoy it! And Happy Eid Al Fitri for those who celebrate it!

    Had a chance to try out the sunken train and glr stations from @Simmer2 . I used this one as an end of line GLR station. Trams enter and exit through a tunnel on the right side. This train station also fits in well. Love the glass roof.

    Thanks, Matias (and everyone who hit "like")! Speaking of said larger possibilities . . . here's another relatively simple thing that will become possible due to these developments: And as an added bonus, here's another pretty simple interchange that I've been able to refine, thanks to the additional adjacency stability provided by the ongoing Project 57-Mark IV upgrades to the RHW RUL2 codebase. Just need to figure out a way to get FTL support added and it'll be perfect. -Tarkus

    It still needs a bit of work, but what you think about this hill-climbing railway? If I did the maths right, it climbs about 300 metres, and as you see on the image, it spans a full big tile's length, with lots of curves. You will probably need to click on the image to even see the tracks, as the colours aren't really contrasted enough.

    Last pics. Fixed a few things and also added new proprietary Borden's tractor trailers and a few lights on the parking lots. Also added some smoke effects! I made the structures in 3 sections, the processing building, the packaging plant and the bridge. I designed them this way so that the buildings can be used separately to create smaller lots. I also omitted to make built in signs, again this was so they can be use to make different kinds of industrial lots. . . . . . Simmer2

    Some more progress. Not really sure what I want to put in the middle of the water park, no doubt I'll have to make a custom lot for it.

    Here is my latest work. Langenfurt, a fictional, old city. Located somewhere in the middle of Europe where time has (almost) stopped. Enclosed by a city wall and criss-crossed by channels fed by a small river outside the city walls. Small farms and villages are located, as well as the monastery, outside the city walls. I avoided traffic and technology as best I could. Maybe you like Langenfurt ........... Greetings wolf

    Currently working on a small tile to get my bearings back. Leaped in a bit too fast before looking and realized this tile had GLR connecting to it so I had to make some more space for it.

    Some progress on the new Main Street Greenway. It has been doubled in width to allow more space for people walking between the Stadium and Convention District, Waterfront Station and the Waterfront Bus Terminal. It also connects to several streetcar, subway and bus stations. Thanks!

    I'm relotting a few pieces I liked to use in my cities. Currently, Pooty : SAnta Monica Promenade. It's supposed to be a straight line but Ia dded some pieces so that it is fully modular : The 4x2 & 2x2 are fully functional CS $$ like the originals but I haven't been able to make the connector pieces UNfunctional (because I used the original pieces, no doubt.) I should remake them from scratch, shouldn't I ? Sigh... EDIT : Done. Completely licked into shape, trees homogenized, connecting pieces, although in landmark menu, only eye-candy now (they had 150 jobs each in the previous version ; which could be useful but a bit cheaty, yes ? ;-) )

    Hey, there was a static prop in the Refuse Relocation kit as well as the timed ones ! Yééé ! (I was going to ask how to make a static from a timed prop ; change both Timed Prop values to 0 I did ; not sure it worked...) But thanks for the tip ! I'd like to have the Reader recipe too, as I am more familiar with it than with PIM. Automatas, here I come !!!

    PDXCon2018 Was a Blast!

    Last weekend Paradox Interactive invited a few of us modders from the community to Stockholm Sweden where we sat on a panel and I received the Chirpy Award. Just sharing some images here at my City Building home forum. You can now see a few of us in the flesh. Bloody Penguin, Sven, AmipolizieFunk, were so fun to hang out with. We also got a lot of face time with Paradox and Colossal Order staff and Strictoaster. It was a trip I will never forget. Just know that Paradox really cares about us as a community and we should all be very grateful to be supported in our modding which they fully embrace. Me with the Cities Skylines Producer Face time with Mariina We had great conversations with Henkka one of the developers at CO Rock City Radio songs sounded so good live Sven, Me, AmipolizeiFunk, Bloody Penguin and Strictoaster They announced a Cities Skylines board game we got to check out the alpha version Bloody Penguin and I I nervously accepted the Chirpy Award It was a great weekend!

    And now for something slightly different (derived from a lot by CasperV). And does anyone know of good-looking recycling trucks that are NOT automatas ? Or know how to make a good-looking recycling truck from automatas ?
