    - YOKIO BAY - Located in the far east, in front of the East China Sea, there is Yokio Bay. Yokio Bay is a fictional asian region done as a collage of various asian maps founded on STEX and with the mspaint.exe's tools. I do it to place a big metropolitan area with three or four main cities and a lot of suburbs... Shangai in front of Tokio. I used mspaint.exe to draw and then procesed it with photoimpact.exe (elevations). I created it with SC4Mapper.exe without problems... Features: > It had a lot of manmade island for urban development, airports and land conections. > Lots of straight coast and plain land for canals, embankments, breakwaters and ports development. > Mainly flat region with natural coast, rivers and lagoons. > Custom config.bmp adapted to the region (mainly medium size cities because my computer is a little low). > 7,5 by 12 big cities region (1921 x 3071 pixels). > 312 cities (290 with firm land). I used part of the these maps, cutting their shapes without the elevations and pasting them in my map...

  8. Hello! Someone could model it? The Ryugyong Hotel (or Ryu-Gyong Hotel or Yu-Kyung Hotel or the 105 Building) is a towering, empty concrete shell that was once intended for use as a hotel in Sojang-dong, in the Potong-gang District of Pyongyang, North Korea. The hotel's name comes from one of the historic names for Pyongyang: Ryugyong, or "capital of willows". Its 105 stories rise to a height of 330 m (1,083 ft), and it boasts some 360,000 m² (3.9 million square feet) of floor space, making it the most prominent feature of the city's skyline and by far the largest structure in the country. Construction started in 1987 and ceased in 1992. If the building were ever completed, it would be the world's tallest hotel and the seventh largest building in the world.[1] However, as of 2006, it remains unfinished and unoccupied, largely because the elevator engineering failed to provide transport to its upper floors. Today, the Rose Tower in Dubai is the tallest hotel in the world at 333 meters (1,093 feet), just passing the Burj al-Arab (also in Dubai at 321 meters (1,053 feet) which was completed in 1999) in 2006 after it was topped out. The "105 Building" is one of the boldest buildings in Pyongyang. From a distance, it is a dreadful, if awe-inspiring piece of architecture. It reminds one of the following passage from George Orwell's book, 1984:The Ministry of Truth—Minitrue, in Newspeak—was startlingly different from any other object in sight. It was an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete, soaring up, terrace after terrace, three hundred meters into the air...The Ministry of Truth contained, it was said, three thousand rooms above ground level, and corresponding ramifications below. (from 1984, by George Orwell, c. 1949) This Pyongyang building is not actually a government ministry or a place of terror, but the Yu-kyung hotel. In a strange coincidence, it is the same height as the building in 1984 and contains the same number of rooms. The Ryugyong's planned 3,000 rooms and 7 revolving restaurants were scheduled to open in June 1989 for the World Festival of Youth and Students, but problems with building methods and materials delayed it. Japanese newspapers estimated the cost of construction was $750 million[4]—2% of North Korea's GDP—and it is generally assumed construction came to a halt in 1992 due to lack of funding, acute electricity shortages, and the prevailing famine. Official pictures of Pyongyang often show the building illuminated at night, but this is due to photo manipulation. The basic structure is complete, but no windows, fixtures, or fittings have been installed, presumably due to the high cost. According to Emporis, the building will never open as presently constructed, partially due to the poor quality of concrete used in its construction making the structure unsafe, and the North Korean government is trying to invite a foreign investment of $300 million to improve and finish the hotel. In the meantime, it has removed the Ryugyong from maps and stamps and built a newer five-star hotel of more conventional design on the Taedong River. I think it is ugly...

Please read the forum rules before you post. Firstly, images must not be over 800x600 pixels. If you use ImageShack anyway, why don't you post thumbnails? (This goes to everybody who uses ImageShack, btw) Those masses of big images make it a pain in the neck to open the thread. Not everybody is on a super-fast connection! People in the DSL era tend to forget everything about efficiency (thumbnails of a few kB each) and superfluous bulk (lots of huge pictures all slapped together). If you don't know how to use ImageShack's thumbnail feature with this forum software, go to the "Show us how you use HKABT content" thread for a step-by-step tutorial. Secondly, this is a building request, and all those requests must be placed in the official BAT request thread. Please remember that the next time. For now, I'm leaving this thread open because it has evolved into a good discussion incidentally. Lateron I might attach the posts to the General Discussion thread. Thirdly, a friendly reminder about fonts and font sizes: The use of big fonts always leaves a bad taste because it looks as if the poster tried to superimpose himself over others... That being said, I'll have an eye on this thread, but leave it open for now. Your input here is welcome, scasta1982, but please do read the rules and try to remember what I just wrote here. ~ T Wrecks]
