  1. Tribute to A Nonny Moose

    I haven't been active on here for a long time but I had an urge a day or two to check up on this place, and yes to see if John had reached 50k posts. Then I saw the moose at the top and my heart sank. Thank you Nonny for your absolute dedication to this wonderful place. I am deeply sorry to hear of your passing, my regards and condolences to all.
  2. Show us your city, road-or transit maps! - 2

    The current iteration of the map I am working on... -Billy
  3. Mojave Texture Development: Phase 0b

    Great stuff Ganaram! One thing on the sidewalk "notch" issue, you could convert the diagonal networks to models not textures and have overhanging sidewalks (but they would not change by wealth would they?) much like how PS does diagonals. I don't know if this would work and if they could be at a Y=+0.1 of say grass textures on houses (so they go overtop) but could be worth considering. -Billy
  4. Rio 2016 Project

    Ones to make the roads look more Brazilian? I'm not sure if there needs to be any changes though -Billy
  5. Rio 2016 Project

    Just wondering guys if you need someone to do transit textures for you to give a more Rio feel. I don't know how much work you would need but I might be able to do some textures for you. -Billy

  7. As of this message I believe it will be January 1st, 2015 (almost?) everywhere. I am not running the competition or anything, I am just letting people know the competition is technically closed (if we are still following the rules most recently revised by Hamish). Good luck to everyone! -Billy
  8. Best Rock song ever!

    Metal is awesome. Iron Maiden. Black Sabbath. Whitesnake... hmmm... are they metal? Maybe hard rock. I have a strong liking for one of the first metal guys, Alice Cooper, esp. "Poison." (The band of the same name is good too.) I never was much of a fan of Guns 'n Roses. I think it's the singer. I have the same problem with AC/DC. That's not a vocal style I particularly care for. My favorites right now are modern symphonic metal bands. Nightwish. Apocalyptica. Kamelot. All awesome! (Nightwish's newest singer, Floor Jansen, is astonishingly good.) Okay, here's a question from me to everyone: I like Black Veil Brides and Escape the Fate. However, I find that they are constantly derided as "emo" and "screamo" bands. I'm really scratching my head on this one. I see very little difference between them and classic metal bands of the 80s. Is there a difference? Am I missing something here? I mean, good lord, look at the band of BVB. They are clearly channelling KISS! Metal is awesome! I wish people would understand that some if not most metal is actually cool stuff - and has origins in classical music. Disregarding the vocals of AC/DC and GnR, the actual guitar parts are amazingly written (well AC/DC is mostly chords but there are some cool riffs - Back in Black, Thunderstruck anyone?). The 80's produced what I find to have the best and worst in music . Glam/Hair Metal can be both but some of Van Halen's stuff is just amazing. Even now bands like Steel Panther channel their inner 80's in their music (mind you they are a parody band). Poison, Mötley Crüe, KISS, etc all came out of that era and produced classic songs. -Billy
