  1. Revisiting Prop Pox and Prop Theory

    There's a way to plop residential buildings without suffering from abandonment. It involves zoning an area and after residential buildings have established, you plop down the desired residential building. @simmaster07 Impressive work, especially with tacking the infamous proppox. Heh, your username really fits your amazing creations here
  2. Show us Your Oddities!

    Ah yes, low density commercial, just what I need :3
  3. Desktop.. Everyone has one of these!

    Yes it is Frankfurt.
  4. Desktop.. Everyone has one of these!

    @MisterBlueStar4 Nice icon collection Here's how my desktop looks like on my laptop. Currently I'm figuring out, bit by bit, how gmax works (and 3d modelling in general). About the background, well the colour pallet with the deep blue's is near perfect for me and the cityscape of Frankfurt am Main looks stellar.
  5. A Horse with No Name by America. One great travelling song, especially for long road trips.

    Well practice makes perfect. Building a realistic looking airport is always a challenge to everyone, from the massive list of dependencies to single tile pieces. The airport I built in the previous submission took lots of preparation and hours of research. The result does speak for itself. @Tyberius06Ah yes moar rails! Also what a huge difference between the before and after pictures!

    A new update, currently I'm working on the capital city of the region, which means I'll go all in with tall buildings. As usual I do challenge myself with a meagre usable terrain to work with. The sheer amount of hills and mountains west of the city and lots of water around the south and east of this part of the region is a tough one to build around. To make it a bit harder for myself, I decided to use RHW to its full potential (more collectors lanes and healthy quantity of T interchanges) and this also means double stacked highways, especially handy in the western parts of this city. In much simpler words, it's going to be pain to cheek to build here, but when I pull this one off this might very well be my most distinct city to date. Alright, I've talked for some extensive time, let's show y'all some pictures. In this image I'm experimenting with low and midrise buildings to see how I'm going to fill the outer parts of the capital's core. Overall design will be more East Coast US themed. Here's the region so far. Some parts of the region will be changed quite a bit to fit the massive international airport and its infrastructure. Region view:
  8. A-Z Cars

    @Fantozzi, Wasn't the Lamborghini LM002 technically their first SUV? Volvo S60 R. All fluids are cramped on one side, because Volvo!
  9. Wooo my GTX 770 died today! I always knew MSI made some of the most reliable graphics cards on the market!:bunny:

      If the card lasted more than the 5 years my last desktop did, you already have me beat!

  10. I don't know what feels wore, loneliness or laziness.

  11. Everything is solved with the Dell Latitude! It now runs (Albeit vanilla SC4) very smoothly and this silly "thermal" throttling at 59°C is gone! Man this machine is a beast once its potential energy is converted into HEAT :bunny:

      Congrats on your upgrade! Which OS do you have?

      It's running good ol' Windows 7.

    @Simmer2They do look pretty sweet! Are you aiming for a modular lots using these models or is this too early to ask?
  13. Purchased a second hand Latitude E6540 with the Radeon HD 8790M, now I have to figure out how to run the game on dedicated graphics instead of the Intel Graphics thingy. So far I'm not having much luck.

    I used the black fences which you can find here in Paeng's SPAM addon pack. After plopping the fences I MMP'd the area to make the different grass textures seem seamless with the terrain.

    The airport is finished*, so I decided to create this detailed mosaic of my creation, hope y'all enjoy it. The airport offers two terminals for larger regional commuter airplanes and an aircraft stand to the rather small ATR's. This airport has a single, controlled runway and one maintenance dock. *The airport lacks a fuel depot, so that's on my to do list.
