  1. Version


    The original walls of Kairouan (in Tunisia) covered alot larger area than today's, and they were bigger also, before being destroyed and most of the city burned down in the aghlabic dynasty's last days. There's not much of city walls in the STEX, and I needed one, so, here it is. I will be making more pieces to it like bigger and better fortification pieces. You will all the pieces in the park menu. Everything is explaind in the screenshots.

  2. Vauban-inspired walled city

    Hi folks, this is my first post here and my english is not state of the art, so please be gentle if I should have broken a rule of some sort. I'm planning a special kind of city. I haven't seen any similar city on the internet - however I assume not everyone posts his city, so maybe it has been done before. The Marquis de Vauban was a french military engineer. Here his wiki entry as I gather you will check it out anyway ;-) The fortified cities he built were of a new kind, following the 17th century development of artillery. Their shape was chosen so that the walls didn't leave any unprotected flank. In fact each wall is the flank of it's neighbour wall. Also, the walls are built on the slope of earthmade mounds. So if the wall was destroyed, the mound almost couldn't. Here some pictures of on of its most famous walled city, the one I base my own on in fact, Neuf-Brisach at the french-german border. Nice isn't it? After several hours of experiments I came up with a shape I'm quite satisfied with, considering the fact slopes can only be straight of diagonal in SC4: For the city itself, I will use wooden and hausmanian-style houses, a cathedral and other historical buildings. You can see remains of experiments with entrances, moats (that I will leave dry thanks to the rain tool) and walls. On this last subject, I have quite some problems, as I have never made lots by myself and somehow aprehend it. I was originally planning to use retaining walls as there are plenty on STEX and other download sites. But the basic retaining walls are very ugly on the diagonal parts as you can see here: I'm not a crazy perfectionnist but there is no way I'm using this. The I found Jeronij's Modern Concrete Walls, that features diagonal parts, wich look much much better: However, as its name suggests, these walls have a modern look. I would need simple brick walls (grey or red bricks) with no trees on it, just grass, no barriers. Special eye-candy could be corners with bartizans, covered ways with ground sills for the glacis (for fort vocabulary look here), and trafic enabled entrances for streets and avenues (why not also pedestrians). I would be grateful to Anyone who is interested in that project and could make those lots. I will share the greyscale or sc4m map of the city when it's finished. On the other hand, I'm sure it would also be possible to make bigger lots that wouldn't need slopes, finished mounds, but there would have to be plenty different ones. Also thanks in advance for any comments, suggestions and critics (as long as they are contructive ;-)). Greetz Fred
  3. This thread would include anything that fits such definitions--be it the military fortress complexes of the old days, any really extravagant mansion, government residence or anything that goes well beyond the grandeur of your generic Maxis mansion! I hereby present you the Emeraldian Palace--royal house of the King and Chief of All Emeraldians:
