  7. (BTS) Attempting a Mosaic

    not very good at it
  8. 82 - Show-Off

    Those of you familiar with my CJ have seen these tiles in many different stages of development. I originally used them as a testing ground for canals and now that I've settled on style (sunken with red brick walls) I unified them so that they connect perfectly. This entry features the largest mosaic I've ever made that comes in at a whopping 24816 x 10107px. You'll have to download it to see it at full resolution because even dropbox can't display it. I encourage you to look at the pics in full size. These smaller .jpeg versions don't really do them justice (they're less than half the size). Hope you have a big screen. Enjoy! Full Size Full Size Full Size Full Size Full Size Full Size Full Size (Unfortunately the full image is too large to even be previewed on dropbox, but you can download the 125 MB png.) Comments, suggestions, and questions are always appreciated. Thanks for visiting. raynev1: Some beautiful night scenes . Sorry to hear about your hard drive , that's a bummer . Hope you continue Ionica . It's been a great CJ . Yeah well, that's just what happens when your computer is over six years old and you push it to the limit on a daily basis. Thanks. gviper: Hey my friend! It's been quite some time! Wasn't sure I'd hear or see you on these pages again. I myself have slowed down in activity considerably. Lovely presentation! Didn't mean to be gone for so long but sometimes life gets in the way. Thanks. korver: Great stuff as always - you probably have my favorite photoshop style of anyone here on ST and the Chinatown scenes are great. Hope you can keep this going Thanks. Looking at your work always gives me the itch to get back in the game. _Michael: Welcome back! I feared I wasn't following my to see any more Ionica, so it's great to have it back! Great looking city with some lovely design elements; can't help but noticing that north arrow though , can become slightly distracting! Lol, all these years and I still have the north arrow. Thanks. TekindusT: Another top notch, deliciously handcrafted mishmash of styles! You know I'm a fan of the mishmash, just too many good BATs to stick to one style. Thanks. kschmidt: Great night views ! Japanese and other buildings well lightened. NAM elevated networks and GLR features well integrated, well done ! Wish I had a few pictures of how it looked before. It was a mess. Thanks. v701: This city is still one of the best SC4 I've seen so far !! I love this clown picture on the skyscraper ! Everyone loves a clown. Thanks. Takingyouthere: Great to see you back in action, your city building style and image presentation was sorely missed. That's the great thing about SC4 at this stage, everyone can have their own style. Thanks. tariely: Very nice night shots ! (and Trump...) Glad to know you'll be back. But CBS ? We have CBS? Or did you make that one ? I Want !:-))) Yup, it's mattb325's CBS. Thanks. Akallan: Beautiful images of nights, it seems so alive. It's beautiful all the lights of nights, my favorite is the one with the channel! Thanks.
  9. Limbourg - Charançon in horizontal

    Hi everyone, I made two horizontal mosaics of Charançon, so I decided to share them with you: 16. Limbourg - Charançon in horizontal (It's way better if you click on the picture) 1. 2. Well, I think I've posted enough pictures from Charançon now. It's time to go back working on Olsènes, here is a preview of what is coming: 3. See you next time! - REPLIES - @MissVanleider Thanks a lot! @tariely Thank you too. I especially like those little Stockholm houses, they fit perfectly here. @raynev1 Thanks too @michae95l Thank you too @Ln X Thanks for your support @GoKingsGo Thanks a lot! @Abrams124 Thank you! Hahaha, I never paid attention before, I didn't see it was a chocolate advertising @SimEMS38 Thank you! You're right indeed, this place is loved by town people
  10. New Concorde Downtown

    From the album NAM Showcase - Monthly Challenge #5

    A mosaic shot of the Trifort region's largest city, New Concorde, showing parts of the Central District and Old Quarter. The highway T1, also called the Cross-Island Skyway, runs left to right in the picture. The bridges on T1 that can be seen in the image are the Adamantine Bridge (left), which spans the Ebony River, and the Baar Dau Bridge (right), which crosses the Glass River. New Concorde's most heavily-used freeway, the Central Concorde Expressway (T2), runs top to bottom on the right side of the picture. Also of note is the main rail terminus in New Concorde, near the center of the image, which is surrounded by the tallest skyscrapers in all of Trifort.
  11. Kendall Mosaics Aplenty

    After an extended hiatus, I'm proud to bring you a selection of photos from Kendall, Nyhaven's nearest major city and the capital of the Federal Kingdom of Lower Columbia. Today, I have four massive mosaics to show you, spanning most of the built-up area of Kendall. Each of them crosses at least one city border and shows areas I've never shown before, so get ready to see more of Kendall than you ever have! This first mosaic, facing east, runs from Parliament House and the Royal Library at the top, past Kendall Palace and the embassies, to the inner suburbs west of the Government Quarter. Fitzsimmons Square the the two residential squares I featured earlier are also visible. Facing south now, we start near Federal Circle, the de facto central business district of Kendall, and follow the transverse arm of the Royal Promenade from the Royal Cathedral to the Palace of Justice. After passing by Justice Park, we come to Port Brunsmjöd, the regional container port, and the marina at the Brunsmjöd village. This north-facing mosaic starts up by the northern embassy district and shows parts of all three embassy neighborhoods, as well as most of the Kendall Palace grounds. Across Gnat Creek, we come to the campus of Royal University, Kendall - the flagship campus of its system. At the bottom is the university's Dukes Stadium and the neighboring University Village. Our last mosaic for today faces west, and it's the longest one I've ever made - so long, in fact, that Photoshop had to shrink it to export it. Starting in some of Kendall's interwar suburbs on the south bank of Gnat Creek, we pass through the western half of Royal University's campus. After visiting the southern embassy district again, we reach the Royal Cathedral before moving on to South Station. Parliament House is just off-screen as we climb the hill that many residents call Flattop, which is home to the capital's largest affordable housing projects. At bottom is the R-50 freeway and its complex interchange with Pacifica and Willamette Avenues.

  14. SimCity 4: Teaser 3

    Hello Guys, So this week, I've just been continuing to add more to the city, and so, for your enjoyment, I present to you, the very first mosaic in this CJ! (You might have to click on it for the full size!) The city is by no means finished, but it's getting there! Hope you enjoy!
  15. "- Am I at Smolny? - Yes, this is Smolny" - Lieutenant Sukhomlin interrogates a guard, not being able to recognize any building in the area due to street defences and camouflage 9/9/1941 - In this picture we see several low-medium wealth buildings in the historical area of Peski, east of Suvorovskiy Prospekt. The name of "Peski", meaning "Sands", describes the nature of the soil. The streets are full of wooden boards protecting shop windows, and everywhere there are Soviet posters attempting to rise the morale of the citizens. Two buildings have been destroyed during the last barrage, one north of 5-ya Sovetskaya Ulitsa and the other south of 4-ya Sovetskaya Ulitsa. An example of Soviet propaganda; it reads "destroy the German monster". Nevsky Prospekt showing wooden boards on every store window. 9/9/1841 - A hundred years before the first picture was taken, the Church of the Nativity was the centerpiece of Peski. Sadly, Soviet authorities ordered its destruction in 1937 and today only the name of the square remembers its location. Horizontal streets in this historical area were numbered 1 to 9 Nativity Street, but they were re-baptised as 1-9 Sovetskaya Ulitsa (Soviet Street). Disclaimer: This CJ includes original photos taken during the siege. To my knowledge none of them is protected by copyright, but if I were wrong I'm happy to delete any picture that infringes the law. ----------------------------------[AUTHOR'S COMMENT]---------------------------------- I hope you enjoyed both the huge mosaic and the old-fassioned picture :-) I'd also like to mention that a some years ago it was announced that the Church of the Nativity was going to be rebuilt in the exact same location were it once stood. If you check Google Earth you'll find the square fenced and most of the park gone. Looking forward to read your comments!
  16. Coming from the fabled and sunken land of Simpegia, P. R. Crastina is a writer. She is now testing the waters of Simtropia, hoping the natives are kind. As a moderately successful writer, she moves around a lot to give lectures and writing workshops and generally goes about trying to contaminate impressionable young (or less young) minds with crazy talks about asking questions and never being satisfied with answers, as she writes science fiction. She also likes to walk, love trees and generally green stuff, friendly cats and eating well. This time, she has been invited to a big city, although she generally is more of a smallville & country kind of girl. Here's a peek.
  17. “Over the city of Lenin, the cradle of the Proletarian Revolution, there looms the immediate danger of the invading enemy” - Andrei Zhdanov 18/9/1941 - War Stories (Vol 1) 1) Top of the picture we see two trams runing Nevsky Prospekt, one of the few lines that are still working during the siege. Network damage and the need of manpower for the war effort has caused that public transport services have been severely reduced. 2) Scrolling down slowly we find a building that has been hit during the last barrage. A large section of the roof has been lost to the impact of a shell, and the rooms of the top floor are now visible from the sky. 3) Further down we notice that there's a restricted area in 3-ya Sovetskaya Ulitsa. Behind the wooden boards, some soldiers are trying to disable a German delay-action bomb. Conveniently, on the building to the left there's a huge poster of Lenin that reads "everything for the defense of Lenin's city". 4) 50 metres from there, a tank heading to the outskirts passes next to a crater opened in the ground by the explosion of a bomb. It has killed four people. 5) The last part of the picture shows a public garden now under control of the Red Army. Swings have been removed and two anti-aircraft guns have been installed. Two soldiers control each gun, one for communications and aiming, the other for shooting. An example of network damage. An example of a delay-action bomb restricted area. Disclaimer: This CJ includes original photos taken during the siege. To my knowledge none of them is protected by copyright, but if I were wrong I'm happy to delete any picture that infringes the law. ----------------------------------[AUTHOR'S COMMENT]---------------------------------- This time I wanted to show you something a little bit different from the usual stuff. With this gigantic close-up mosaic I wanted to bring to life the siege of Leningrad and the everyday stories that took place in the streets of the city. I'm planing to do more of these, so I'd be more than happy to know what do you think of it!
  18. Kolomna VI - Air Raid

    "Over our happiness circles a bird of prey, but in a stern, unbending formation people fight for life, for honor, for friendship, for their motherland, sacred, theirs..." - Viktor Gusev Several Messerschmitt fighters have taken off from Tallinn and head towards Leningrad from the south. Their objetive is to ensure air superiority and to spread fear among the population. 22/9/1941 - The Luftwaffe has penetrated deep north of Kolomna and approaches Sudomekh submarine shipyard (also known as Shipyard No. 196). Submarines K-1, K-21 and K-22 of the Northern fleet are stationed there today. To the top of the picture we see the Set Workshops and Hall of the Board of the Imperial Theatres, seemingly harmless but secretly building dummy tanks for the Red Army. Facing the Moyka river, to the right of the image we see the left wing of Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich. Disclaimer: This CJ includes original photos taken during the siege. To my knowledge none of them is protected by copyright, but if I were wrong I'm happy to delete any picture that infringes the law. ----------------------------------[CREDITS]---------------------------------- I hope you enjoyed this large mosaic that I created as closure for Kolomna. I was about to include a speed-editing video as making-of, but in the end I thought it could be a bit off-topic for a CJ. For those curious, it took 3.45h and comprises 115 layers. Now I will continue with Admiralteyskiy okrug (featured already in the third entry) home of Saint Isaac Cathedral, Decembrist Square, Mariinsky Theatre, and Admiralty building. Stay tuned ;-)
  19. Gardele - a Joint CJ

    This is a joint CJ by Reaps and me. We will update every week. I am updating first! We are using the map by Izidor44 I hope you enjoy!
  20. Hill to the Bay - Super Secret Mosaic Bonus!

    @The Steve: I was actually thinking something more like The Chromatics' 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6p8UKQ362o'. Rather lovely album. @Ace: Thanks for the note. I didn't check the peak time, and I should probably get a persistent automata mod. The roads in Redwolf definitely are busy if you check the route query. @All: Kitteh bellies have definitely been rubbed. And now I present a mosaic, looking from the Observation Tower through downtown and to the bay. Enjoy.
  21. Another Mosaic

    Replies @ Ace♥ & Huston: Thankyou both I have a nice mosaic ready today. It is from the Penzance region, and for the next update I should have some development pictures. Click the images for full resolution This CJ will be slightly roadgeeky, I can't resist.. And the mosaic... Click the link below for the full mosaic. Click me for full mosaic! I am lacking in custom buildings for the Penzance region and the Cape York region at the moment, that's because I've just made a new plugins folder specifically for these regions. I'll get some more eventually Thanks, Sam.
  22. SimWorld | Return #2

    Replies (only 2 years late.. ) @ escilnavia: Here is the next entry Taken a long time for me to get back into SimCity 4, but here we go! @ ee99: Thanks, hopefully we won't have any more computer errors! So, it's back. Hopefully now it's much better too. I've rebuilt my whole Plugins folder to make things run smoother and look nicer. I've chosen 3 regions to work on; the Omega region, Penzance and Cape York. For now, the CJ will be following my progress as I build the regions. They're nowhere near completed, so there is a long way to go. I'll kick off the new SimWorld with a nice 8MB mosaic in full 1080p resolution. It's quite big, so click at your own risk The area is from the CBD of the Cape york region. It's not complete, I just wanted to give you a taste of what's to come If, for some reason, the above image isn't working, click me. Thanks, Sam.
  23. 12: Mosaic Flight, Now Departing

    Mosaic Flight, Now Departing We hope you enjoyed your time at Gilbertson Regional Airport
  24. REPLIES _____________________________________________________ Simcoug: Thanks! You'd think that, but I have poorest plugin folder building skill. I've never really gotten to sort my Plugins files and now its a mess that can never be properly sorted out dubaidude303: Thanks! Forthwall: Thanks Shub Hazani Pratama: Thanks! Evillions: Thanks a lot! I'd put in SimMars buildings on this but I haven't had a chance to install them in cause they don't seem to appear (I get brown boxes) TekindusT: Too kind Tekindus Thanks! newyorka: I did use quite a bit of plopping (and lotting ). The buildings on Horizon are on the STEX. They're pretty easy to find. Most of them are by Kellydale, the Lippo Center made by the HKBAT team as well as the Hong Kong Commerce Center building (I think that's the name). 10000000000000: Haha, thanks ggamgus: Thanks a lot weixc812: Thanks so much, means a lot coming from a very talented CJer/MD KonstantinII: Oh, it'll be interesting to see what you come up with in your future based CJ And I don know that set, but haven't had the best chance at installing it cause the props don't seem to show up properly; and the distances being in kilometers was just me being really lazy Jesus Christ: Thank you very much my lord Fox: Such kind words, thanks a lot Fox WELCOME AGAIN! _____________________________________________________ Well, I guess I lied that there was going to more about Horizon, but of course the planet's other colonies and rural stations have something to offer as well. Which brings us to the privatized research platform with three names; the Hanvhar Plateau Station (HPS), Hanvhar North Station (HNS) or Solidarity Station. The station is located north of the Hanvhar colony and south-west of the capital, Horizon. This particular station operates outside of the radar of Hanvhar and Horizon government authorities. Laws set for these colonies do not apply in the Plateau region where land has been restricted to access by Station employees, officials and associates. Despite it's name, Hanvhar colonial government have no interactions with the station with the exception of maintained communication (base communication does not release any information on its actvities) which is essential for all colonies and bases on Ferust. But of course, many rogue settlements still sit isolated from this chain of communication and remain totally invisible to higher authorities. The only information colonial governments have obtained about Solidarity is that the station employs biological research which is used by an unknown source company which funds the research and testing that is performed in Solidarity Station. There are other facilities surrounding Solidarity, and the proximities of these platforms suggest they're interconneceted by subterranean tunnel systems. One facility outside of Solidarity, which is located south from the base and across a river is particularly referred to as Mast-One, a name obtained from past communication interception. Accessing the remote and isolated Solidarity Station can only be done by flying to the station as there are no known access routes by ground transport. This explains the reason for each main facility to have a hangar area to access the station. WARNING: TWO MASSIVE MOSAICS AHEAD approx. 1024 x 8600 px. each During the evening, the stations seem fairly quiet with no odd occurances. The most significant phenomenon sighted in this area was an increasingly bright blue light eminating from Mast-One. Other reports from wandering intruders originating from Horizon, Hanvhar, Endeavor and Parthense have not been proven to be true and stealth surveillance over the area give colony government's and other planetary system government's; particularly Earth, insight on the activities of Solidarity. Discounting the previous statements, Solidarity poses some interest to governments but is essentially no different to other research platforms. By morning, the situation on Solidarity barely changes. Activity outside is low, nothing more than passing transport vehicles and employed scientists walking from facility to facility. Unfortunately, it's quiet status though is becoming a growing concern for the colony governments of the neighboring Hanvhar and Horizon. Thanks for viewing Rate and Comment ! ________________________________________________________
  25. Update 5: Shorecoast Part II & Massive Mosaic!

    Welcome to another update of Holt District! In today's update we are once again in the Town of Southlands. Today we focus on the northern suburban area and some of the northern condominium buildings. We also delve into the CBD/Downtown, which of the 3 on Holt District it is the smallest. The northern suburban area of the city is a very ritzy area, house prices average $900 000. Yes, that's the average. Some, many, go for much more. The reason in it is a series of peninsulas, granting waterfront property to many, or water access close by if you aren't waterfront.The condominium buildings offer some cheaper (but smaller) living space as well, and really boost the Shorecoast skyline. You will also notice the photo size has increased! Photos are now 1020px wide, instead of being ~750. And today's update may be the one for me to beat - it is awesome IMO. It features my largest ever mosaic, spanning more than 3500 pixels in length. See that at the bottom. With the wider photos come a few retouches to the general appearance, as well. Nothing major. Let's go on to today's update! Also, before the update starts. Be sure to check out HDHIP - it will play a HUGE part in the future of this CJ. Shorecoast - Booming Development Along the Coast Part 2 of 2 *Be sure to click on each photo for the full size! 5.1 | Empty land. Yep, empty. Well... for now anyways. Rumour has it a developer is interested in acquiring the land and building a massive condominium complex. Whether that gets approved remains to be seen, as just months ago the Town was rumoured to be aiming to protect this land, and keep it open grassland. Talks have been slow, and with the rumoured interest, may not happen at all. One of the most desirable developments is in the bottom right of this photo... but more on it further down. 5.2 | Here in Northern Shorecoast, houses are expansive. Like really expensive. The ones on these specific inlets list for no less than $1.5 million. Have no fear... I hear the bank is nearby. Whether you get approved for a mortgage on one of these properties... that's a different story completely. And whether that's what you pay, same deal. To further complicate manners, houses here don't come up for sale often. The residents here stay for long periods of time. There is usually only one listing every 2 years. This often leads to bidding-wars... 5.3 | Slightly further south than the above neighbourhood we arrive here, known as Islegfawn, another popular area for famlies and retirees. There are many fixer-uppers in this area, bringing the average house price down to around $675,000. Once fixed up, they can go for around $1 million, depending on the scope of work done to them. 5.4 | If you thought the above area were expensive, you haven't seen anything yet. These houses go for an average of $3 000 000 - yes $3 Million The houses on the centre island are the most expensive, average around $4 million. Prices are really that ridiculous, and change by that large amount between areas of the Town. 5.5 | Those looking for a Shorecoast address who can't afford the lofty prices often look to condominiums. Unfortunately, they're hit with the same type of pricing. A 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom, 1500 sq.ft. condo will set you back about $550 000. If you're on an upper floor and have a great view, you'd be pushing $800 000. However, these 4 buildings are typically 20% because of their exclusive nature, and the fact they are surrounded by water on 3 sides. These are some of the most desirable condos in the entire region, not just Shorecoast. 5.6 | Now, if you need a break from sky high real-estate costs, let's go to something non-residential, the Town's CBD. Despire its size, it is the smallest of the 3 CBD's in Holt District. It employs many of the cities residents. Construction and reconstruction are very common here, as is evident by the number of new buildings. 5.7 | Here's another view of the downtown core, with the view it overlooks. Nice, huh? While seawalls have been investigated, and the structural integrity of the land is constantly monitored, there has been no need for the expensive walls... yet. 5.8 | This green building is a historic landmark in Shorecost, as it is the oldest skyscraper in the Town. It cannot be torn down and redeveloped, and renovations must adhere to strict standards. This building is a major tourist draw, with many going to its observation deck to have a look at the surrounding view, and it is a regular stop on the building tours. 5.9 | And for fun, a night view of the Downtown Core at night, with some of the surrounding condominium buildings. 5.10 | Oh, but wait! We're not done yet. If you thought the above photo was cool, wait until you see this one. I have been mentioning this update has an awesome mosaic, and here it is. At over 3500* pixels long, it goes from the north-end of the town, down to the curved-condominium development we looked at in update 4. Fun fact: If it were to be printed, it would be over 1 metre long. *Before any auto-resizing by the forum software. Here you go!! That's all for today - If you reached the bottom of this part of the post, congratulations! Next update we will continue our exploration of the region. Yes, there is still LOTS more to see. Done in the comments section of each update! Next Update: We will continue to explore the existing Holt District settlements.

Make a Donation, Get a Gift!

We need to continue to raise enough money each month to pay for expenses which includes hardware, bandwidth, software licenses, support licenses and other necessary 3rd party costs.

By way of a "Thank You" gift, we'd like to send you our STEX Collector's DVD. It's some of the best buildings, lots, maps and mods collected for you over the years. Check out the STEX Collections for more info.

Each donation helps keep Simtropolis online, open and free!

Thank you for reading and enjoy the site!
