City-building game(s)

Found 182 results

  1. Hello everyone, Long time since I've been very active. Jumped back into making game content, this time for Cities Skylines. Been working on a new modular airport for way too long and finally starting to put the finishing touches on it. This is my 1st unveiling and I'll probably be working on it for another month before releasing. When I started out to make this monstrosity, I had small goals to just make some simple modular airport pieces. I was always unhappy with how the nightlights in a modular building looked, always coming on at different times. When the nightlights were on all the time, I didn't like the look of it either. So I learned how to make Clear glass props. Nice. So then I had to model the insides of the buildings, then figure out the pathing, the roads I use to simplify laying things out broke the paths. So I learned how to make new roads and offset the pedestrian paths. Then I thought that I wanted to be able to have a working skytrain system going to different parts of the airport. So I had to learn how to make a proper elevated train station and a new rail line that could be bent at 90 degree angles to fit in the buildings. On and on it went until now I feel confident enough to unveil this to the community, warts and all. There are about 30 buildings in the set, a boatload of glass props, 4 roads and about 30 props (not glass). This will not be for the faint of heart. I made this airport shone in about 3 hours. This is not a "plop and go" building. Remember that some airports are like little cities themselves. So all these resources for an airport aren't all that bad...right? Almost forgot to mention the parking garage with the skywalks and integrated metro station will be released with this too. As a side note, I spent a lot of time making a station for the skytrain in the garage and making it go into the terminal building. Not happening at this stage. For now I have given up on that folly. The modular 8 level parking garages will have 11 buildings and I made 2 new parking lot light props for them. Don't be shy and tell me what you think. Just be gentle please.
  2. Overhanging lots

    As someone who has done very little modding, I am after some advise in regard to over hanging lot's both creation and function. Below is what I want to create, I want the runway, taxiway and grass to over hang the freeway that is underneath. So the first question is, if I have over hanging lots over the freeway, will the freeway continue to operate normally? Note: I know the runway and taxi way over than lights is non functioning and I dont intend to add anything to it. Next question, as someone who has done next to no modding in the past, am I going out of my depth to quick to soon? If anyone has any guides or props to help feel free to let me know where to find them. Thanks.
  3. Air France A-380

    Passengers deplane from Air France flight 7870 @ Charles DeGaulle International Airport (CDG) in Roissy.
  4. Making a custom airport service road, and I need to enable bus stops for use with Vasimr22's service vehicle bus pack. I have all vehicles enabled in the lane properties, and for stop type "bus" isn't listed to I just chose car. Is that correct, or is there another way?
  5. BFA's terminal 1 was finally completed, and my The Mayor's disdain for purely non-functional airports was outmanuvered by my The Mayor's love of looking outside at JFK's apron. To coincide with the non-functional reopening, a Railway Service to BFA was initiated; this is done using ICE-2 trainsets bought secondhand, while a local service paces near it with what is usually Capitalstar EMUs; primarily on the Northern DC lines. Several M3 sets survive in service; these are possibly going to be replaced with Desiro units; however. BFA itself is still a hotbed for Commercial Flying, with a Air-To-Orbit project continuing using a Tu-144 and a MD-11 bought off the local scrapyard. However, there's currently disputes going on between the local Civil Air Patrol branch and the Airlaunch Company; the latest movement is parking a MD-11 infront of the CAP hangars. As of today, CimTrans is trying to work out an agreement. BFA itself has 2 main spokes; one handles longer-distance Ryanair and the miscellaneous AE flights usually, the other mostly CS Airlines. Connected directly to T1 are gates to shuttle flights; you can grab a cramped ride in a CRJ200 to Gramercy, St. James or Newark (however, the last option is not that patronized.) Now, to the elephant in the room; why are 4 MiG-21 jets infront of a American airport terminal? Well, back in the good ol' days where every train had graffiti on it and the major was a corrupt SoB, BFA was becoming dangerously unsafe for flying; a accident in '78 where a very unlucky and very high-profile F2A slipped off the runway on to the main lines that Amtrak took in and out of the city made the point clear; the Airport was at it's breaking point. The one thing the Council could do, in an embarrassing move, would be to ask the ol' USSR for help. Of course, it worked, and with a letter from the Premier himself and a Blank Check for the Airport and some extra for Education (unrelated, the City swears, was the purchase and distribution of the Communist Manefesto to Libraries.) In 1990, to express the City's gratitude, we began a twinning with Leningrad, and we donated 4 F-84s from a scrap heap for display in exchange for 4 MiGs; relations with St. Peterburg continue to this day, however they've been getting colder recently. The Port of Portdale is beginning to take shape in the last 2 photos; Cims Metal Recycling is a company that cuts up pretty much everything (except MP-70 and MP-54 cars, both of which contain pollutants only able to be handled by the Railroad itself, but the R-32 cars that are being replaced with some French stuff are fare game). This includes planes, and there's a couple Jetliners in the boneyard at any given time. However, not all are destined for the Scrapheap, 2 F-14s and 2 A-6s are being retained for the University Island Aviation Museum; when it's built, anyway.
  6. So, previously while building BFA i was using the Incheon Airport by Elvis as Terminal 1. It was affected by a bug that made planes hate it, so i began an attempt to convert it to a decoration. However, nothing fit, the jetbridges were all wrong. Thus, i begin building my first purely decorative airport
  7. From the album Up in the Air

    My second time in Newark wasn't a successful one. Only a couple border officers at passport control to check several aircraft incoming from Europe during the midday. It took 1h40 to get through passport control and customs, and my connection to Orlando was 1h40. Got rebooked to Tampa on a flight several hours later, so had plenty of time to enjoy Newark's sights.
  8. From the album Up in the Air

    ... and suddenly, Lufthansa's retrolivery airliner registered D-ABYT, popularly known as Yankee Tango, is always a special sight wherever it flies. I was so lucky of sitting at the left side window on my B747 and seeing YT on its full glory.
  9. From the album Up in the Air

    Morning approach to Frankfurt airport. Weather wasn't too great.
  10. From the album Up in the Air

    Spent 6 hours straigt at Orlando airport this last February, so I had plenty of time to take pictures. I was surprised to see an old McDonnell Douglas aircraft in operation by one of the big three legacy US airlines.
  11. BFA

    Alright, i'm pretty much done with it so here's Buddy Finley International. Named for a dog who passed away a couple years back, BFA has 3 runways, and is capable of handling jets up to the A380. BFA is a hub for Morita Cargo and Ryanair US, and has a total of 3 passenger terminals and a single freight terminal. Ryanair offers cost-cutting flights to various cities, and operates out of Terminal 2, the central terminal. BFA isn't a stranger to Personal Aviation, either. Several hangers and private aprons offer comfortable parking for jetsetters, and several more spots exist for light aviation. The most notable usages of it is housing the "Black Bear", a Tu-144 Concordski currently under refit by a private company to be used to launch cubesats and the like into LEO, hauling up boosters and launching them at high speed and high altitude. Next, hopefully soon, we're going to move to the Dockyards, an area completely transformed in recent years.
  12. Hey there everyone. Just found out about this new airport building game (in actual 3d) which is looking very promising so far: I'm personally very excited about this game, wishing the crew from Lithuania the best of luck becoming the next Colossal Order. Here is there forum, it's not too active, but they do reply on occasion. http://www.realwelders.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=3
  13. Version 2.0.0


    This is a small international airpor based in the "Manuel Carlos Piar International Airport" located in Guayana City, Venezuela. NOTES: - This Airport does not replace any airport in the game. - Unfortunately i did not manage to make it functional, however if it has effects on demand of your City.

    This Christmas I flew home with Lufthansa. I delayed my reservation for too long and the low-cost airlines were alredy full. Still, not a large problem as I would experience LH's intra-European service and "know" Munich airport, where I had never been on. Both flights to and from MUC were almost heavenly. Operated with rather old A321s, there is plenty of space and the flights are rarely fully booked. There is a snack and free alcoholic drinks service, something I'm totally not used to as I normally fly low-cost when in Europe. The flight MUC-TXL was amazing (including a dangerous crosswinds landing), as the aircraft was only half full and the crew was so attentive and having so much fun during the service. They got many compliments by the passengers for that.
  15. From the album Up in the Air

    Taxiing in MUC I had the chance of capturing the long A340-600. These old and inefficient planes are currently being phased out off Lufthansa's fleet with A350-900 XWBs, and soon will be a nice memory of another time.
  16. From the album Up in the Air

    Some Bavarian sights while approaching to Munich airport. While it looked peaceful, Germany was under a big storm, leaving heavy winds all over the country. The flight had been very turbulent and the pilots had to land among heavy crosswinds. They achieved that at the first try.
  17. From the album Up in the Air

    Midday long-haul operation at BCN. American flies to JFK and MIA from pier E at Barcelona's T1 and both flights depart within a few minutes difference. I watched the pushback of this flight from my own flight's boarding queue.
  18. From the album Up in the Air

    Quite a rare sight here. Pictured one of the A330s operated by LEVEL, which is a long-haul low-cost spinoff of Iberia. LEVEL flies to Oakland, Los Angeles, Punta Cana and Buenos Aires. The deboarding was ongoing meanwhile I took the picture.
  19. Hello ! I hope this time to be in the right place ! So ... The project "Scoty Modular Airport" (SMA) aims to divide an airport into more or less large Lots typical and varied (common to all airports), to build them in a few clicks and a minimum of preparation, like a little puzzle, from which we could choose some of the pieces and their locations. This is not a question of competing with RMIP and ACTeam ..., who have done a great job, but rather to extend their creations and facilitate the "assembly" of airport. For this project a little (!) ambitious for one person, I need the help of seasoned BATers, for a number of Building/Props needed. I set up this site: http://hugaroux.free.fr/ dedicated to this project, where I explain, enumerate - as and when my thoughts - all the needs, the preparations and the progress Lots. Many thanks in advance to all those who want to help this project.
  20. Basin City

    Boarding operation in Berlin-Schönefeld for flight DY1103 to Oslo-Gardermoen. Still at the passport control.
  22. From the album Up in the Air

    Morning operation at Schönefeld. I arrived this Monday morning from Gatwick into Berlin-Schönefeld. Passport control in Berlin isn't what you'd expect from a civilized country, so I took a couple of pictures to distract myself.
  23. Has anyone tried if it is possible to modify the runway and taxiway with the new road modding tool? At first sight when I tried it in the editor it is not possible, those networks don't appear. But by an accident I found that if I load the editor up with an airport asset and then from there create a new road I can select both the runway and taxiway. In the editor it seems to work, removing all the lights looks good but it fails to load in game however. Perhaps this isn't supposed to be doable since they are not available directly (bug)? Or could it be that it fails to load because of loading screen only? Haven't had the time to try the "normal" way. These are just thoughts, but I wanted to shout them out in case there was anyone else who discovered this or find it interesting.
  24. From the album Up in the Air

    I've seen many pictures of the Z concourse at Frankfurt airport, with all wide-bodies at the gates. I tried to catch the same picture, rather unsuccessfully. Half of it is occupied by the A321-200 that flew me back to Berlin.
  25. From the album Up in the Air

    And that's the aircraft that flew me back to Europe. I was frankly expecting much more from Lufthansa's catering. Except the tiramisu, the food wasn't good and they had only one beer choice (Warsteiner). Ugh. Maybe my expectations were set too high, but as I experienced it, United blew Lufthansa off the water in this aspect.
