  1. The Village

    Replies: Kim Sunwoo: It get's a little better in this entry. Urban Constanta: Thank you very much! Krasner: This old dog is still learning new tricks. kingofsimcity: Cheers! The next step is merging diggis river pieces with his pond pieces to create lakes and/or reservoirs. kschmidt: Thanks a lot! The next phase is creating grid-busting villages which largely consist of MMPs. Linoa06: I created a river to add an interesting boundary to the fields, every field I created is influenced by that river. Simmer2: And those dry stone walls have already been put to good use. Thanks! MiCephia: Thank you. Also good luck with your MMP experiments. Tyberius06: SC4L0ver: Wait until you see my landscaping work for hills, mountains, lakes and rivers- that will be for my next SC4 project. Akallan: Yes- I am increasingly using MMPs and focusing more on rural scenes and suburban scenes. While in future my urban scenes will include additional MMP flourishes. Entry 15: The Village About three months ago I worked on a small row of houses which were off the road and used MMPs for the surroundings. I came back to this two days ago and this time I produced a small village. 1. The area in question. 2. More track grid-busting. 3. I used girafe's bushes for hedgerows. 4. 5. Making use of Simmer2's Dry Stone Walls, found here- http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3566. 6. The village- off the grid and filled with MMPs! 7. Simmer2's walls are also useful for property demarcation. This idea came about because lone houses in the Pennines, or in the Lake Distract, often have stone walls to mark the edges of the property and the land. 8. Since the properties are rural, quite a few of them have some kind of greenhouse or patch to grow vegetables (or personal crops ). 9. A little mosaic for today! 10. Here is the northern route into the village. It is the main one. 11. Minus the stone wall at the bottom right corner, everything you see here is 100% MMP. 12. Someone please page simmaster07 -- we need to place MMPs on streets/roads/railways ASAP! 13. Despite this limitation I am happy with the final result. 14. Another overview of the new area I created. There will be more close-ups when I start the large tour around Pololomia. For now though these pictures shall suffice. 15. Dem details! Right now I am working my ass off finishing off as many fields as I can during my one week holiday. There will be another entry next week. After that Pololomia should be done and the grand tour can commence.
  2. Arquennes - Introduction

    Hi everyone! It seems that almost a year has passed since the last update. As usual, I've been losing interest for the game then came back to it and started working on different projects without finishing them. And you all know that I'm quite slow... The play time counter from Steam is for instance quite depressing for me to see It's time for me to introduce Arquennes, the city that will interest us in the next updates. The idea, as you may have seen, was to create some kind of regional middle town located on its hill next to the canal and trying to make it as organic as possible. 22. ARQUENNES - INTRODUCTION 1. Episcopal city means churches... 2. 'La ferme du Bailli', a specific update will be dedicated to that place 3. Feluy, one of the 5 other villages that are part of Arquennes municipality. Same, a specific update for that one 4. Arquennes itself, its cathedral and episcopal palace I hope you liked those pictures. The next ones are coming soon - REPLIES - @JP Schriefer Thank you very much! @The British Sausage Thanks mate! @_Michael Yeah I know, they are never there when you need them Thank you! @ulisse Thank you too! The citizens will welcome you with open arms! @Takingyouthere Indeed, even if I try to keep some growed building. Thank you! @MissVanleider I think it's quite faisible for Arinsia government. Thank you! @Prophet42 It's part of Callagrafx's canals. Nothing more. Thank you. @juliok92012 Thank you! @sejr99999 Thank you! It would be great indeed! @sunda Gracias! @kschmidt Thank you! There are indeed several 'Venice of the North'. @simlacroix You're welcome! @tonyr Thank you too!
  3. SM2 Dry Stone Walls

    Version 1.0.0

    134 Downloads

    SM2 Dry Stone Walls (Muro Secco) Are a type of wall made with stones found locally and assembled without mortar thus the name Dry Wall (Muro Secco) They are mostly found in European countries. Unfortunately they are the remnants of a lost art. No one makes them anymore. These walls were used to "fence in" properties and also to provide shelter for livestock. I tried to provide almost all possible combination in order to make just about any shape you may need. Orthogonal, diagonal, round corner, sharp corner, diagonal to orthogonal, broken walls, overhanging diags and orthos, open gates, closed gates, even gates on diagonals and more! There are also a few stone structures to complement the set and one special transition piece which will allow you to follow heights differences of 7.5 meters. (slope friendly). Please use the road lifter tool in the NAM menu to set height to 7.5 meters when using the transition piece for best results. Included are 4 lots (Orthogonal only) that will make it possible to create EDGE to EDGE scenes. And last but not least, I have included 2 MMP files based on the model and texture of the wall, for those hard to reach areas. They are slope friendly and you can even place them under water if you wish. I created a custom icon set with clear and easy to recognize symbols, You will find all 42 lots in the park menu. No cost to plop, maintain and bulldoze. Neutral lots. The lots have no base textures. Just plop them and dress them with your favorite MMP. No Dependencies. Simmer2
  4. I I I

    Hello everyone, The video is finally coming out, it's different from the others I've done so far. It is oriented rather political in general than on the game itself and you will understand it quickly by viewing it. If it took so long for it to come out, it's because I hesitated for a long time before deciding, because the video presents ideologies different from the norm and the media "main stream". I can understand the disagreement about people's opinions, but please remain respectful in the commentary space. I am open to all discussions as long as it is constructive. Good viewing!

  5. A Special Christmas Present

    Replies: _Michael: Thanks for that! I did what you said for my mosaics and it worked! SC4L0ver: There's A LOT more rural scenes coming! Prophet42: I am on a roll and I still find new ways to make these rural scenes and still find little improvements to better the quality. Anyway, ErnestMaxis created this MMP set which has all sorts- the gazebo is actually an MMP. The set can be found here, but DEPENDENCIES galore! http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3493 Bluthlucidity: To answer your question I plop in some RCI buildings and grow others. Though nearly all commercial and industrial buildings are plopped, while some of the residential buildings are plopped. Though I'm not sure how to answer your second question- do you want me to make my plugins available to download??? Anyway, thanks for your comment! buckbeach47: Thank you very much for your comments and for showing me the 3RR Exchange- this entry came about thanks to those circular fields. So thanks! gunkz32: Cheers! There's a lot more where that came from. aegian: To answer your question- no. But there are several SC4 Gods who produce scenes like this but with a very different style- Korver, Huston, SimCoug, Paeng, Fasan, Vortext, etc. A few times you will see people make the Google Maps comment for the bunch I mentioned! Entry 12: A Special Christmas Present!!! Note: this entry is dedicated to buckbeach47 for showing me the 3RR Exchange and these amazing circular irrigation fields. It's Christmas Day and since I now have a two-week Christmas Holiday (one of the perks of being a teacher) I have some time to finish off Pololomia and the surrounding rural areas. In this entry I show you the latest areas I have been working on and there are some goodies- including two MEGA-Mosaics. 1. To immediately answer your question about the circular fields, they can be found on the 3RR Exchange on SC4D. (Link here- http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=5603.0) 2. This circular field comes on a 24x24 lot, the outsides have this dirt texture which can be MMPed over. 3. 4. There is also a smaller 12x12 version. 5. 6. Here I go full-on 100% MMP saturation. 7. 8. 9. I have redone the area around the petrol station; small buildings by the intersection. 10. As a new feature I now add a small dirt perimeter around my MMP fields. It makes them a little messier but in a good way I think. 11. Beyond Pololomia are a series of small villages close to the outskirts. 12. In the last two years I have become more and more interested in creating smaller scenes, rural scenes, village scenes... 13. Big skyscrapers and all that jazz now bores me. 14. I am much more interested in rural/urban transitions, villages and of course mid-rise scenes (such as the city centre in Pololomia). 15. The idea behind this field is that it has been heavily used by farm animals- the grass has been completely devoured in places but the farmer keeps on using it for convenience. 16. The same field but nearly all of the grass is intact. 17. And here is my attempt at minimal MMP saturation- which is surprising hard to get right! Moderate MMP saturation is even harder because there can never be enough MMPs... 18. This picture shows part of two dedicated animal herding routes- the ones that are all dirty, dusty and brown. I would say this is moderate MMP saturation. 19. MEGA-Mosaic 1. All of my time and effort goes towards creating realistic rural/urban transitions. 20. MEGA-Mosaic 2. If you ever wonder why I take so long to finish my cities it's only because I want to show you scenes like this! 21. Anyway, next week I will show you some more updates. But right now I am loving the rural areas I'm creating; I would say I love creating rural areas more than creating industrial areas. Enjoy this entry and enjoy the Christmas Holidays!
  6. Canada

    After taking a look at Toronto, today we'll be touring the rest of Canada, another one of the world's most beautiful countries. Our tour starts off on the Eastern shores, in the Newfoundland province. The small town of Red Island Harbour is quite picturesque - and the locals here make their living off some of the richest fishing grounds in the world, the Grand Banks. Wintertime can be quite beautiful - if you're lucky, you might get to see a unique wonder that rarely occurs across the globe: pancake ice. We travel south to Nova Scotia - where lighthouses dot the coastlines. One of the most famous ones is Peggy's Point Lighthouse - built in 1868, it's one of the areas most famous landmarks and one of Canada's most photographed lighthouses. Our next stop is Quebec City. Located on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River, Quebec's capital is one of the most historic cities in all of Canada, and in fact is the only North American fortified city north of Mexico whose walls still exist. It's most famous landmark however is the stunning Château Frontenac - built in 1893, this grand hotel is one of Canada's most spectacular buildings. Not too far away is Montréal, the most populous city in Canada's Quebec province and the second largest city in the country. After Paris, it's the largest primarily French-speaking city in the world. Since it's founding as a small colony on Montréal Island back in 1642, it's transformed into an international metropolis ever since. Our next destination is the capital of Canada - Ottawa. The centerpiece of the city is Parliament Hill, an impressive collection of buildings which house the Parliament of Canada. Our next stop will be on Canada's southern border with the United States - where we'll get to see one of Canada's most amazing natural wonders, Horseshoe Falls. At night, these famous falls are illuminated in a rainbow of colors, turning the whole area into a spectacular light show. We travel into Manitoba where we'll take a look at it's largest city and capital - Winnipeg. Known as the "Gateway to the West", the city is a railway and transportation hub and has a vibrant downtown area. Canada's great prairies are superb for farming - and have made Saskatchewan known as the breadbasket of Canada. Small rural farms like this one can be seen virtually everywhere. We head into Alberta, stopping in the "Gateway to the North" - Edmonton. This city of nearly 1 million is home to one of North America's northernmost skylines, filled with highrises like the 441 ft tall ATB Place (formerly known as the Telus Plaza). Our next stop will be in Northern Alberta - in the city of Fort McMurray. Due to its location near valuable oil sands, massive industrial complexes have sprung up and smokestacks can be seen for miles around. We head north, venturing into the Arctic - visiting the capital of the Northwest Territories, Yellowknife. Located on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake, it's the only city for hundreds of miles around - and wintertime can be especially brutal here. The YK Centre sign has been an icon in the city for decades, tracking the frigid temperatures. With temps reaching as low as -51 C - make sure you dress warmly! As we travel further north into Nunavut, the temperatures drop even further - the local Inuit hunters who live here make igloos their home, and have done so for thousands of years. They do a great job of shielding them from the elements - and from the occasional nosy polar bear, too... Iqaluit is Nunavut's capital - its a city filled with simple yet beautiful architecture. Colorful houses and unique structures like the igloo-shaped St. Jude's Cathedral make this city of 7,700 people stand out. Iqaluit's name literally means "many fishes" - and has long been a prominent fishing location, but stocks have been declining in recent years. We travel back south, and along the shores of Great Bear Lake is where we'll see one of Canada's most awe-inspiring sights - the Northern Lights. Also known as Aurora borealis, these colorful lights in the sky are the result of electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. Our last stop in the Arctic is the Mackenzie River delta - where we'll get to see one of Canada's most unique natural wonders, the Pingo. These mounds of soil are filled with a core of expanding ice and usually a small pool of water at the top - and when the ice melts, the pingo collapses. Their name originates from Inuvialuktun word for "small hill" - and can reach huge diameters, sometimes as many 2,000 feet wide. Our next stop is Calgary - the largest city in Alberta and home of the Calgary Stampede. The city's skyline has seen expansive growth in recent years - giving it one of the most impressive skylines in all of Canada. The towers of Eigth Avenue Place (completed in 2011 and 2014) rise above the city - they're some of Canada's most spectacular skyscrapers. For those wanting to get away from it all, there's no better place than the Canadian Rockies. Stunning lakes like Moraine Lake are nestled between pristine forests and towering peaks - and their turquoise color (caused by glacial flour) is truly mesmerizing. We make our way to Canada's western coast, stopping to take a look at some of the totem poles that dot the shorelines. The ones here at Stanley Park in Vancouver are one of the country's most visited tourist attractions, and are one of the most recognizable cultural symbols of Western Canada. Our last stop in Western Canada will be Vancouver's downtown - it's one of Canada's best, filled with sleek and modern buildings like the Bentall Centre. Despite a little rain, it's truly one of Canada's most beautiful cities.

  7. Back to Rural Again!

    Replies: Namiko: Thanks a lot! Prophet42: Those would be the backalley / centre-of-the-city-block pictures- I'm glad you get great ideas for your cities. Akallan: I will be posting the odd montage video every two months or so... JP Schriefer: Thanks! Also, one can never go wrong with Ennio Morricone. Wallibuk: Thanks! The buildings are a mixture of American, European and British buildings. Urban Constanta: Cheers! Entry 11: Back to Rural Again! So as promised here are some more rural scenes. I managed to find a diagonal version of Diggis river set and combined with the orthogonal set makes for some great-looking small rivers! 1. The idea is a stream cutting through the fields, with some areas being fenced off to create wildlife habitats. 2. Combined with orthogonal corners and diagonal corners, creating a river becomes an exercise in grid-busting. 3. The path splits in two... One branches off towards a small tourist spot. 4. Another thing I'm working on is wild areas with a medium saturation of MMPs. It's not 100% saturation and it ain't a light saturation either... Medium! 5. I always enjoy painting in MMP gravel paths. 6. At first I was just planning on creating MMP fields, but throwing in a river adds a bit of much needed variety. 7. Full-sized image can be found here- http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img923/1006/x8Hb1c.jpg 8. One of my favourite scenes to create is the rail siding in the middle of the countryside. 9. I also throw in some SPAM fence sets in as well- brown, white and barbed wire. 10. And a bit above the bridge is the field which hugs around the river's edge... 11. Using Heblem's tropical grass I get this dark-green field which looks decent. Another <small> addition is a dirt-lined perimeter around some fields. 12. The petrol station faces out into the sea of dark green. 13. 14. As mentioned earlier the tourist spot is this small gazebo by the river. 15. Now my plans for this river is that it will run across the northeast corner of the city tile. LARGE VERSION: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img924/772/YZVYC7.jpg 16. And here is the picture of the playground. I posted this several days ago but here is the all-dolled-up version! Now then, the next entry will be something similar- more rural scenes. Enjoy! Lastly- WHY doesn't this site properly show mosaics?

  9. Highlights of Pololomia

    Replies: Akallan: Thank you! Anyway the URS is what I wanted from SC4 a year or two ago; 2016 had some great stuff but I can now go even further than that with residential plopping and creating lots with transparent tiles with buildings upon them. Prophet42: Cheers! It's getting easier and easier to detail city areas and give them a certain character to them. BC Canuck: Steal those ideas! If you're wondering the British Sausage is a famous joke from the British TV series Yes Minister. tariely: Oh yeah! Michelle Yukimura: I go to GIMP and use the horizontal flip tool. sejr99999: Thanks! And good luck with your search. metarvo: Yeah the diagonals were a give-away; I am a madman when it comes to creating seamless diagonals and removing jagged texture edges on roads. kelistmac: Make some - ahem! - contributions for the mayor and that house is yours. feyss: Thanks! Entry 9: Highlights from Pololomia In this entry there are some more pictures from Pololomia. I think I can get the whole city tile done by Christmas holiday time. Thanks a lot for the comments- it is good to be back. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and the enjoy the weekend. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.
  10. Evolution

    Hello everyone, It has been a long time since I came on the forums, tonight I come back with a new video... A video a bit special, it's the first time I spend so much time to achieve one. It took me more or less two weeks, during all my evenings to lay this video, there are more than eight hours of films that had to be sorted and compressed. But the biggest particularity of this video is that it appeals to 21 other people than me, without whom, I could never make this video as we know it today! I want to thank everyone who took some of their time to make the video! Good viewing! Thanks for the comment! I did not invent any MMPs, all come from different mods. For the lots it's almost the same thing, I just used existing BATs in the LE. Thank you for your sharing! Thank you very much, it makes me very happy to have worked with you! I'm glad you're happy! Thank you very much Michael, I'm glad I worked with you too! Thank you! Thank you very much GoKingsGo! Thank you very much! Thank you very much korver! Thank you! Thank you very much, music plays an important role too! Well, thank you very much! For the textures of roads and streets, this is part of my work SNT: Textures are not available at the moment. The project should be realized in a few months! Thank you Krasner, glad you like it! Thank you very much for the comment! There is no problem, the resolution also goes as it is now! Thank you! Thank you very much for your comment and your participation, I am very happy! Well, thank you very much for all your kind words! It is true that I do not always have a lot of time to work on SC4, but I always try to find a moment to do what I like.
  11. Hey, I just thought I'd give this a shot and see if anyone could possibly point me out to a tutorial for creating MMP/Mayor Mode Ploppables? There's virtually nothing on the internet (that's obvious) that I can find regarding the conversion of props for use as MMP or how to even do that? I've been wondering how to do this since I first started BATing sci-fi props and would totally appreciate any help anyone could provide on this
  12. Ancient Egypt (Preview)

    Ancient Egypt (Preview) Ancient Egypt has always been a personal favorite place of mine - and I'm finally making it a reality in SC4. I recently found an awesome model online which I exported into a number of parts and assembled it in the game.. and the results are impressive. (If anyone is really interested in it, I'll try to contact the author to see if I can re upload it). From there it was a matter of custom lotting it and carefully removing the base textures - if anyone's interested, I did a guide on that process in my Year In Review entry. I'm planning on doing some more commentary and guides in the future though Anyways, I'm putting the finishing touches on this scene - its covering the Pyramids, Sphinx, Nile River, and some of the surrounding farmland.. expect to see the full update very soon! Don't forget to comment, like, and follow True Earth if you haven't already! -korver - - - Previous Update: "London - Landmarks" Big thanks to @Tonraq,@Odainsaker, @RobertLM78, @bladeberkman, @tariely, @CorinaMarie, @Mr Saturn64, @Cyclone Boom, @nRVOUS, @kingofsimcity, @mike_oxlong, @Toby Ferrian, @feyss, @matias93, @jakis, @Fantozzi, @Pluispixel, @mrsmartman, @Dreadnought, @The British Sausage, @scotttbarry, @RandyE, @Akallan, @redfox85, @bobolee, @Angry Mozart, @sucram17, @SC4L0ver. @Krasner, @kelistmac, @europe.au, @geminijen, @Simmer2, @gigius76, & @raynev1 for all the likes!
  13. Cephalonia (Countryside & Overviews)

    Our journey to Cephalonia concludes with one last trip through the countryside. From the winding roads, small farms, and stunning natural beauty - there's so many things that makes this island so beautiful, and makes it a fitting way to end our trip. Additionally, I'll be showcasing some more overviews of Cephalonia. We were last at Myrtos Beach - and after a fun day at the beach, we made accommodations at the nearby Plaza Myrtos for the night. Once nightfall hits, the only lights you'll find in the distance are that of the occasional boat or two. It's quiet and peaceful - but also quite beautiful. Our room in the villa happens to overlook the edge of the beach - so we get an excellent view of the sunrise. Fortunately, we didn't have to deal with any of the rain at the beach.. The rain finally lets up - but is quickly replaced by a blanket of thick fog for most of the evening. The Cephalonian countryside is crossed by a variety of winding roads. There's no such thing as a dull drive here - and between every twist and turn, the views are incredible. Small, charming churches like this one dot the countryside. Two last overviews of the Cephalonian countryside. And to wrap things up - a couple of full tile overviews. (Click for full size.) I hope you enjoyed your visit to Cephalonia!

  14. Cephalonia (Myrtos Beach)

    Our next stop is Myrtos Beach - arguably the most beautiful location in all of Cephalonia. Due to it's remote location, you won't be able to reach it by foot - the only way to reach Myrtos Beach it is to traverse your way down a series of steep curves. If you're able to make it there however, you'll be rewarded greatly with warm waters, soft white sand, and the view of a lifetime. The day starts early for anyone wanting a prime spot at the beach - and the roads throughout the surrounding countryside are already starting to fill up with cars. The roads slowly start to get steeper and steeper - a sign that we're getting closer to the beach. As we start to see scree slopes dot the surrounding hills - it means we're just about there. We stop at an overlook and get our first good look of the beach. It's quite stunning.. but the first order of business is how to get down there. There's only one way, and it's not for the faint of the heart. A steep road filled with hairpin curves traverses down the mountainside - and when it gets busy, it only becomes that much more intimidating. But if you can make it down to the bottom, you'll be rewarded greatly. We're finally at the beach! We get a great spot and start soaking up the sun. A couple of Myrtos Beach panoramas (click for full-size). The beach in all its glory. If you can get past the huge crowds, there's really no other place like it on Cephalonia. It's a truly stunning natural wonder. And finally, various views of the beach and surrounding countryside from above. Myrtos Beach is truly a quite a sight to behold.

  15. Cephalonia (Rural Scenes)

    For our next chapter of Cephalonia, we stay in the countryside - but this time, focusing on the small village of Anomeria and a number of surrounding rural scenes. Quaint villages like these dot the landscape for as far as the eye can see - while they may be small, they more than make up for it with their charm and character. Early morning in rural Greece is truly special - there's really nothing else like it. While most days are sunny and beautiful here - it's not uncommon for fog to roll in at the blink of an eye. ... rain showers are probably the only thing that can spoil your day here. But the rain is usually gone as quick as it rolls in. The golden sunsets of rural Greece are something that you don't want to miss out on. Nighttime here is quiet, yet beautiful. For centuries, small plots of land lined with stone walls have dotted the landscape. They're a cheap, efficient way to divide up fields. When viewed from above - rural Greece can be quite stunning. Myrtos Beach is off in the distance - and it happens to be our next destination Don't forget to comment, like, and follow True Earth if you haven't already! -korver --- Previous Update: "Cephalonia (Farmland)" Big thanks to @MushyMushy, @bladeberkman, @RobertLM78, @Toby Ferrian, @RandyE, @Fantozzi, @CorinaMarie, @scotttbarry, @Oerk, @Artimus, @redfox85, @bobolee, @_Michael, @Manuel-ito, @raynev1, @The British Sausage, @Elenphor, @Marushine, @Dirktator, @mrsmartman, & @JP Schriefer for all the likes!
  16. Cephalonia (Farmland)

    One of the most beautiful sights in all of Cephalonia are the many rural farms that flank the hillsides. Despite Greece being infamously poor for farming (in ancient times, they would actually import many of their crops from other countries such as Egypt due to poor soil conditions) - conditions are just good enough here that a number of crops are able to grow. It's a simple beauty that makes it so special, one that has lasted for thousands of years. Small farmhouses like this one dot the landscape - with olives, wheat, and grapes being vital crops. In springtime, the blooming flowers put on a beautiful display - complimenting the natural beauty of the region. Sunsets here are quite magical. The Ancient Greeks needed a crop that would grow on the rough, rugged hillsides. That crop was olives - and these groves have dotted the Cephalonian landscape for thousands of years. Today, Greece is the world's third largest olive exporter - for many here, getting a good harvest is crucial. The rural roads here are quite beautiful. Surrounded by rows of cypress trees and endless fields - there's not many drives out there that can compare. Finding them is quite rare - but the occasional sunflower patch makes for a beautiful contrast of colors. The long abandoned farmhouse.. When viewed from above - you can really get a complete grasp of how beautiful Cephalonia is and everything it has to offer.

  17. Cephalonia (Waterside)

    It's impossible to imagine Greece without the sea - so it's only fitting that we start our tour of Cephalonia with some scenes from the surrounding Ionian Sea. Thousands of years ago, Greek fleets once crossed these waters, engaging in massive wars. While things may be quite a bit different these days - the sea still remains vital. From enjoying a day out in the sun to taking your boat out on a cruise - this is one of the most picturesque locations in the entire Mediterranean. We begin with one of the many campgrounds that overlook the water here. It's difficult to imagine a more beautiful location. Hot air balloons are one of the best ways to view the island - the views from above are simply incredible. For those seeking a thrill - hang gliding is a popular activity throughout the region! While whale spottings are rare in this part of Greece - if you keep your eyes out, you just might get lucky and spot a few. Early mornings on the beach are spectacular. Quieter crowds and beautiful golden sunrises make this a great time to visit. Even in misty weather - the landscapes here are magical. The only concern might be the occasional rain shower.. If hang gliding wasn't enough adventure - you can also try out paragliding. With landscapes this stunning and crowds growing in the summer months - one hot air balloon might not be enough. The steep roads here that overlook the ocean offer some truly incredible views. The surrounding farmland of Cephalonia is just as beautiful - and it's where we'll be headed to next.

  18. Cephalonia: Introduction

    The Mediterranean is one of the world's most beautiful destinations - and Greece's Cephalonia is one of its most spectacular islands. Between the soft sand, crystal clear water, beautiful landscapes, and perfect temperatures - any trip here is truly unforgettable. After previously exploring this theme earlier in 2016 - I've decided to expand on it quite a bit. I've detailed the remainder of the tile, covering every last bit of land with flora - and there's going to be a massive variety of new scenes to explore. We'll get the five-part series started off by taking a look at one of the defining features of Greece - the Ionian Sea. From there, it's off to the countryside to visit some of the beautiful farmland that covers the island. We'll then visit one of the many charming villages that dot the landscape - Anomeria. The fourth update will be a special one - a trip to Cephalonia's iconic Myrtos Beach. We'll then wrap things up with one last trip through the countryside, along with some overviews of the entire tile. With 100 pictures in total - it's going to be a truly incredible trip. We begin in a couple of days - you won't want to miss it!

  19. Tour of Africa: Central Africa

    The tour resumes as we look towards one of Africa's most iconic natural wonders - the legendary Mount Kilimanjaro. Standing some 19,341 feet tall - its Africa's tallest mountain and one of its most popular climbing destinations. Despite its height, its a relatively easy climb - its essentially a big trek to the top - but what you do need to watch out for here is the very real risk of altitude sickness. While the top might not be as impressive as it once was with many of its iconic glaciers melting due to climate change - it still offers some of the most incredible views the world has to offer. From Kilimanjaro, we travel north into Kenya to witness some of Africa's most stunning wildlife. Our first stop is the incredible Masai Mara National Reserve - home to some of the best wildlife on the face of the planet. You'll find elephants, giraffes, zebras, lions, wildebeest, and countless others roaming these lands - even with declining numbers in recent years, there's still plenty here to observe and stare at in awe. The best way though to view them though is high above in a hot air balloon - despite the cost, its still certainly an experience that you won't want to miss out on. We continue north to another one of Kenya's wildlife gems - the incredible Lake Logipi. This algae-infested rift valley lake is home to countless lesser flamingos each year during migration - they make for a truly stunning sight among the many hot springs and geysers that dot the shoreline. Further north is where you'll find what some call the world's biggest swamp: the Sudd of South Sudan. The very name "Sudd" is Arabic for barrier or obstruction - and that's just what this swamp has been for thousands of years for the locals and outsiders alike. Not even the Roman Empire could get past it - Emperor Nero himself sent his troops up the White Nile, but the Sudd prevented any further colonization. These swamps have also have made the search for the source of the White Nile particularly difficult - its simply that big and difficult to navigate. Despite the nature of the swamps, the locals have lived here for thousands of years, usually setting up small huts on various islands across the swamps. Although seeing wildlife here can be rare - its still possible to see a thundering herd of elephants now and then making their way across the swamp. We begin making our way back down south through the rural landscapes of the Great Rift Valley. For as far as the eye can see, the lands here are crossed by an intricate pattern of huts and farmland, providing the locals just enough to make a living off of. Our final stop in Central Africa is another one of Africa's premier natural wonders - majestic Victoria Falls. The tribes here call it "the smoke that thunders" - which seems quite fitting as you can hear the water cascading down these sheer cliffs from miles away. At 355 feet tall, these might not be the world's tallest waterfalls - but they're certainly one of the most awe-inspiring - and a destination that anyone visiting here won't want to miss.

  20. Tour of Africa: East Africa

    The tour continues on as we make our way to Madagascar and the many unique destinations that dot the shorelines. Our first stop however, will be at one of the many quaint fishing villages along the shore. The friendly locals have been fishing in these waters for centuries, and it remains one of the most vital economic activities in this part of the world. After a couple of days driving through the barren landscapes of rural Madagascar - we finally reach the stunning natural wonder of Isalo Massif. This national park is well known for its unique plant and animal life - and looks like something that came straight out of the Jurassic era. Hiking is popular in these parts, but do be careful - many of the rocks here are crumbling and it can be a long ways down.. On the west coast of Madagascar is where you'll find one of its most famed attractions - the endless forests of baobab trees. These are some of the most unique trees in the world - reaching heights as tall as 100 ft, they're hard to miss - and every trip to Madagascar should include a visit here. However, as with many natural wonders across the world - human activity has had a profound impact here, and could continue to cause bigger issues down the road. The trees originally didn't grow in isolated patches, but were once instead part of a great forest - one that's been cut down to a small fraction of its original size. While the locals have left the baobabs as a sign of respect, it should be noted that this area isn't a national park and could very well be subject to further deforestation and human activity in the years to come. Not too far away from the baobabs is where you'll find another one of Madagascar's wonders - Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park. These majestic karst formations have been carved into razor sharp pinnacles by groundwater and the elements, and this dramatic forest of stone is a destination that you won't want to miss. Plenty of unique plants and animals are found here as well, thriving in the unique elements - making for a truly unique trip. We board our boat and make our way back to the mainland, where we'll spend the next couple of days visiting a few more of the stunning villages that dot the shorelines of Mozambique. Between the pristine blue water, unique architecture, and perfect weather - there's few places in Africa that can rival their beauty. We move into the mainland, and the next destination is the wildlife haven of Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania. With plentiful populations of giraffes and other unique animals, its a must-visit destination - and if you're lucky, you might even spot a couple of rare black rhinos along the way as well. Be on the lookout though for giraffe in particular - you never know when they might cross the road, feet away from your car.. The last stop is one of Africa's most beautiful and deadly locations - the stunning crater and lava lake of 11,385 foot tall Mount Nyiragongo. This volcano has a long history of violent eruptions, and with the last eruption coming in 2016 - you never know when it might be set off again. For the particularly adventurous tourist - you can hike up to the steep crater rim and take in stunning views of the world's largest lava lake. (No photoshop used - this goes for the previous one too. The lava lake is a big custom texture & prop I made, along with a couple Maxis smoke animations.)

  21. The old port

  22. Tour of Africa: Southern Africa

    The tour of Africa continues on as we visit the rolling hillsides of southern Zimbabwe. For as far as we can see, small villages dot the landscape - and the locals have lived in mud and thatched roof huts like these for thousands of years. Small plots of farmland are seen throughout the countryside - providing the locals just enough for them and their families. As we move west, we venture through a very different kind of landscape: the swampy marshlands of the Okavango Delta. This massive inland delta is unlike any other place on earth - and the wildlife is equally incredible. You can find massive herds of elephants, wildebeest, lions, zebras, and countless other species - so we get on a boat and get as close as we can. Further west is one of Africa's natural wonders - the harsh Namib Desert. You won't find too many settlements here, as the elements are far too inhospitable - but you still might find the occasional mining village, as this region is one of the world's largest diamond exporters. The former diamond mining town of Kolmanskop in southern Namibia had an unfortunate fate - once a rich little village, the entire area was abandoned once larger deposits were found closer to the shoreline. Nature soon took over, and many of the houses here are starting to fill up with sand. While today, the entire city remains a popular tourist attraction - its unknown how long it will last until its completely lost to the Namib. We move back south into South Africa - and we're sure to visit one of the most beautiful destinations in the entire continent - the vineyards of Franschhoek. Centuries old farms complete with Dutch architecture makes this one of the most charming places we visit on our tour - and there's few ways better way to spend a weekend than going out and tasting some of the local wines. Further south is where you'll find the legislative capital of South Africa - Cape Town. With a population of nearly 4 million, this is one of the largest metropolitan areas in all of Africa - and much of the city is surrounded by townships (slums). The locals have to deal with poor housing conditions and poverty - not to mention the polluting factories that dump waste right into the surrounding rivers and streams. The defining feature of Cape Town isn't an office building or any other man made structure - but instead the stunning Table Mountain that serves as one of the world's best backdrops. Its stunning any time of the day - but when the clouds and fog start to roll over the top and into the city, there's few places that are as magical. Travel some 700 miles east along the Drakensberg Mountains and you'll uncover another one of South Africa's incredible natural wonders... Tugela Falls majestically cascades some 2,972 feet down The Amphitheater, a stunning geological feature which contains some of the world's most impressive cliff faces. To get here will require days and days of hiking - but considering its widely regarded as having some of the world's greatest views from the top - its certainly worth it. The world's second tallest waterfall certainly doesn't disappoint - and it serves as the perfect end to our tour of Southern Africa.

  23. Tour of Africa: Introduction

    So for my next series of updates, I have something a little special planned. Over the last couple months, I've been slowly accumulating a large collection of African scenes - and it's finally starting to come together. With nearly 40 different scenes (the pics below are just a small little teaser of what's to come - the tip of the iceberg ), it's going to be like nothing I've ever done before - an unforgettable tour of just about everything the continent has to offer. We'll start off the six-part series by taking a look at one of Africa's most iconic cities - Johannesburg. From there, we'll stay in Southern Africa, exploring a variety of natural scenes - including one of Africa's most famous wildlife sanctuaries, the Okavango Delta. Along with the world's second tallest waterfall - Tugela Falls. Animations are going to play a pivotal role in this series - it's going to be quite the sight From there, we'll head east - getting to visit East Africa and the beautiful Indian Ocean along the way. With a number of unique wonders like the Tsingy stone forests - visiting Madagascar is also must. It's off to Central Africa from there - where we'll get to explore wild Africa at its finest along with a number of natural wonders. Algae-rich lakes such as Lake Logipi attract countless lesser flamingos - and when they migrate, it makes for one of the greatest sights on the continent. We'll then head out to West Africa - visiting a number of small rural scenes, like the ones found in Rural Congo. And we'll wrap up in North Africa - after traveling through the Sahara, we'll get to see one of the continents greatest landmarks, the Pyramids. Additionally, as you might expect - there hasn't been a great deal of African themed custom content to work with. Because of this, custom content creation has been absolutely vital to this series. I've been creating various BATs from scratch on a massive scale to make some of these scenes possible: WIP: If anyone's interested in some of the stuff I'll be using over the next couple of updates, feel free to PM me. I don't know yet though how long it will take me to upload some of this stuff, there's still lots of various odds and ends that I need to sort out and I've been extremely busy with my CJ/MD as of late.

  24. Bohemia

    Located in the western Czech Republic, Bohemia is a region full of picturesque landscapes and charming villages. Few are as delightful as Hrensko - and its where we'll begin our tour. Founded back in the 15th century as a trading settlement on the Kamience gorge, its turned into one of the most popular tourist destinations in the area. Hrensko also serves as the entrance gate to Bohemian Switzerland National Park - but be sure to take in the village for a day or two before sailing down the Kamience gorge. The Kamience gorge cuts through the heart of the park, and riding a slow sailing boat down the river is one of the most popular tourist attractions. The steep cliffs are quite incredible, but remain quiet until our tour guide finds a rope attached to the other side and gives it a huge pull... The Umelý vodopád (artificial waterfall) comes gushing out of a small crack at the top of the rock cliff - creating quite the splash and the perfect photo opportunity. We emerge out of the gorge and start making our way through the heart of the park. After a few hours, we finally reach one of the most stunning tourist attractions in the area - the striking Pravcická brána, the largest natural sandstone arch in Central Europe. In 1826, an inn was built here and has remained a popular spot ever since - after a hard day of hiking, there's nothing better than a good meal here. Be sure to take advantage of the many paths that wrap their way around the arch to get a great view of the landscape - but remember that the top of the arch has been out of bounds since the 1980s due to heavy erosion from tourists. Our last destination in Bohemia is the impressive Pravcický kužel (Pravcický Cone) - one of the most imposing structures in the entire park. For the thrill seeker out there, its the premier destination in the entire park - but only the bravest of climbers would dare to take on these sheer cliffs in the dead of winter... During summer however, when things are a bit more manageable - rock climbers from all across Central Europe will take on the cone. For those who can scale up these challenging cliffs - hundreds of feet high with little to no room for error - they will be rewarded with some absolutely incredible views from the top. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Bohemia - its truly a timeless beauty. NOTE: In order to make this update, I really had to put my BATing skills to the test. I modeled and textured these BATs completely from scratch (1, 2, 3 - pictures taken from the Lot Editor window) specifically for the update - if anyone would like to try the models out for themselves then please PM me Don't forget to comment, like, and follow True Earth if you haven't already! -korver --- Replies for "Natural Wonders" @IL.

Yeah, I'm planning on releasing a bunch of stuff here at some point. I'm going to be insanely busy with my CJ for a bit as I get out a lot of older updates though, so probably once things settle down. But in the meantime, if there's anything you're after in particular, feel free to send me a PM and I'll see what I can do @mattb325 Thank you for the nice words! @elavery I just checked it out - quite stunning.
