  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. More Rural Development!

    Replies: kschmidt: Cheers! rathefalcon: Everything I do with these city tiles is to create rural/urban transitions. Prophet42: UrbanConstanta: Did you manage to download those fields? TekindusT: Worth the price of admission! Kim Sunwoo: I call that mosaic the city centre to rural transition. simbasc4: Thank you very much! Entry 14: More Rural Development So this month has been a busy one, but in the last two days I have been working some more on Pololomia and finishing off areas to the north. I reckon finishing every area could take anywhere between a month and six weeks given all the MMPs I am using, but it is slowly coming together. 1. Gridbusting on a MASSIVE scale. 2. I'm experimenting with mixed field/woodland areas. 3. Rural areas in England often have many fields with patches of woodland throw in the middle. 4. While Diggis river extension pieces form great boundaries for the fields. 5. And the river banks are SO MMP-able. 6. Another feature of English farmland is the line of trees bordering fields. 7. The other thing I am developing is a better blending of tracks with the dirt perimeter of fields. 8. And a new MMP farm combo (using Chrisadams3997's RRP MMPs): wild white flowers combined with clover textures. Throw in ionionion's OMCo brown dirt and we have a rich, organic field! 9. And a close-up of that field. 10. Rivers make for the most interesting boundaries... Sometimes the fields will be bordering the river banks and other times there is a clear separation between river banks and fields. 11. By using the wide version of Heblem's gravel MMPs, and placing it in the centre between two lines of gravel MMPs, it gives the tracks a rough boundary- which helps them better blend into the landscape. 12. While the field edges look dirty and as messy as possible, which is just the look I'm going for with plowed fields. 13. Another overview of the area I'm working on. 14. 15. Simmer2's stone paths MMPs are SO good! Plus this is another exercise in varying MMP densities: high to the left, medium by the river and low to the right. 16. Blending the street, river, diagonal fillers and MMPs all together in one cohesive package. 17. Fields must be YUGE! 18. And with that I will end this entry. Next entry- next week? Two weeks from now? See you then.
  3. 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!

  5. 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?
  6. Dealing with Prop Pox!

    Replies: Akallan: Thanks a lot for your comment! Entry 7: Dealing With Prop Pox So all of those great pictures and scenes you saw in the previous have been lost. The reason why is that a week ago Pololomia suffered from Prop Pox. So I had to use an old back-up which is prop pox free- unfortunately it was dated three weeks ago. I haven't added too much in those three weeks, but still... All of those MMP scenes are gone. Oh well... But it did give me a chance to redo the outskirts of Pololomia and I believe I have found a better layout! Anyway enjoy the pictures! 1. Let's start off with a MEGA mosaic! Link to see the big version- https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/147x907q90/922/Eq1rSx.png 2. More sneak peaks of the city centre. 3. 4. 5. 6. And here is the new layout- look to the top of the picture and the outskirts look WAY better as they have now become less dense and there is more green space between them. Note some of these spaces have now been filled in with MMPs. 7. And now some more MMP goodiness! 8. I redid the FA neighbourhood and made it strictly attached to the road- there are no diagonal streets shooting off. 9. 10. 11. When I went to the Lake District a week ago, I was driving along the A66 and I noticed the layout of the trees amongst the fields: lines of trees for field perimetres, small clumps of woodland in the centre of fields, grassy areas marking the perimeter of a field, etc. 12. This got me thinking about how I could add woodland in the middle of my large MMP fields... 13. 14. A new development in my MMP farm/rural quest- wild meadows! 15. 16. Now THIS is what the rural/urban perimeter of Pololomia is going to look like- the grid meets organic MMPs, diagonal roads and FA roads! There will be another update next week!
  7. Creating realistic rural settings

    Replies: _Michael: Thanks! I spend a lot of my time expanding the city based on density transitions: high to medium, medium to low, low to medium, etc. kschmidt: Diagonals zones coming off FA roads was done to a limited extent by someone else- they however zones diagonal houses on an FA road but I took a perpendicular approach. FrankU's Dutch Parks are highly versatile and can provide posh fencing, low density tree fillers and cool looking paths. The horse race is a bit small and the diagonal downtown section has a little too much repetition but... It passes muster! I do love slotting in railyards into my industry. kelistmac: Cheers! I always go for large and gridbusting where possible- it's even possible to gridbust using strictly orthogonal streets and roads. Simmer2: Thank you! Your LOTs and BATs go some way to filling in my railways, industrial zones and rural areas. Entry 6- Creating Realistic Rural Settings Building urban areas is one speciality of mine and I do love industrial areas, but where I flourish in is with rural areas. Using MMPs I can create an organic look to a grid system of fields, or do some immense grid-busting. Listen up as I reveal some methods for creating highly realistic rural areas. 1. The 101 of Realistic Rural Scenes is rural/urban transitions and vice versa. 2. You will need fences bordering the fields, woodland filler tiles (or MMP trees), low density areas and of course the grunge roads found in Bipin's Industrial Essentials help too! 3. The city border can be all sorts: housing, light industry, a school, a large facility, a utility complex, etc. What matters though is there being a clear division between where the urban ends and the rural begins. 4. One method is mixing in fields with RCI zones. So when you move to the city outskirts there are fields either penetrating into the city area or there are fields surrounded by city blocks, etc. 5. The other crucial thing to consider is SPACE. 6. The smallest field needs to be at a minimum approximately 200 metres wide. Like the field above its width is 12 tiles across- or 192m. 7. In the North of Pololomia I mixed in fields with industrial blocks. This can make building to the grid very interesting and thus rather Americanized. Remember: SPACE, fillers and clear rural/urban divisions. 8. It's perfectly normal to have an industrial estate or business park to suddenly emerge from the countryside and farmland. But these kind of areas often have a lot of green space, trees and again SPACE. 9. Rural/urban transitions come in all shapes and sizes. For instance the railway marks the separation between an outer city suburb and the countryside. 10. In the future I will show the full area and you will appreciate the layout, size and detail involved. In these teaser pics though and in this one we have a bit of MMP gridbusting. Gravel/tarmac MMPs can go in any direction, as can walls and flora- EXPLOIT THIS to the max! 11. The next big challenge of rural/countryside scenes are the fields themselves. DO NOT use plopped field/crop lots. These have little to no variation and so make the grid stand out like a sore thumb. Because of the fields variation/(organic irregularity) your eyes are drawn to the fields, thus rendering the orthogonal roads less obvious and intrusive. 12. But MMP fields -- and I have taken great inspiration and artistic license from Ln X here -- make fields realistic. Why? Fields are organic and plants are sprouting in a chaotic fashion. Laying down MMPs emulates this chaotic distribution and so the entire field becomes this large painting- subtle variation of one theme. 13. I will explain more about MMPing fields in a future entry- but the basic process is usually mixing two flora MMPs together to create a thick, detailed look. 14. MMPs can also extend lots which seem very confined. The industrial buildings in the centre have more presence because of the dirt truck stop. This is just one small example of how texture MMPs and vehicle MMPs can produce incredibly realistic scenes with only three or four MMPs being used. 15. Using Ilive's Reader and the Lot Editor, 1x1 residential buildings can be changed into parks with no base texture. 16. I'm only just beginning to explore this technique but the results produce astonishing off-the-grid images. The buildings are surrounded by MMPs which create the illusion of a large lot, but the reality is this- these are 1x1 park tiles which have a house in the centre and a transparent texture. For the longest time I have always wanted to do something like the above and finally my dreams are coming true! Well... That wraps up this entry. And next week another entry. Stay tuned.
  8. An Introduction to The URS

    Welcome to The URS! What is The URS? Well... 1. The URS stands for Urban/Rural/Scenic. 2. This CJ will cover all sorts. 3. Lush, green suburbs... 4. With rich details and some nice patterns. 5. Commercial areas and civic complexes... 6. With some realistic spacing and division of areas. 7. Diagonals are covered too! 8. And I throw in all kinds of fillers to make areas look interesting. 9. And what about the urban, W2W and inner city areas? 10. No problem! 11. But we are forgetting industry! 12. And of course the MMPs! 13. Rougher, low-wealth and rundown areas are also covered in The URS. 14. Old content meets new content. You will see old plugins effortlessly fit in with new content, new mods and new fillers. 15. And of course every area and every city will have its own feeling to it. So that's The URS in a nutshell. This month and the next I am working on a city tile. After that I'll be specialising in a particular area: farms, industry, forestry, suburbs, seaports, power plants, etc... There will be weekly updates. So... See you around and I hope you have enjoyed these pictures.
  9. Hey all! friday was day i decided i do something with fact we cannot draw narrow FLOWABLE river. And I find out best solution, this is 5th version(in my opinion) - i tried many combinations, like build it onto shallow canal (because of limit height of water in shallow canal is too small, its undoable..) Big chance is poop water can be even better (didnt try yet) What is recommended: many networks! (on screenshot you can see five "networks" along each other - still easiest version of it, so this isnt something you want with big cities with so many roads) When you place quay on ground, you can see one side with terrain with other height than the flat one. It seems like a small thing what you cannot use for. Well. For flowable trench it is enough. I placed national road (i wanted road with no sidewalks, like i saw in video on Seychelles - its idea from there). Under it I placed quay (sometimes you have no luck with terrain glitching (when yes, select quay node at bad terrain area, with alt key move it straight and back..after some time you hopefully understand how its changing..). Then i placed trench next to national road (as close to quay wall as possible). Then you need two lane plain street (purpose is only cover glitched terrain - ANY PED or CAR can use it). And finally road you want next to two lane plain street and connect with national road. Voalá, water flows, no one is flooded (maybe i have mod, so i can place even building "onto" water with no problem). Known issue: terrain glitch shadow on left side. Easily can be hide with vegetation on slope areas, on flat areas ploppable asphalt and maybe dirt or whatever. Once you place quay correctly, you won. But you really need patience to reach this effect. Hope you enjoy! This was my last time before vacation After that i make short vid-guide (just no time yet) Let me know what you think? What would you improve? Or so..

  11. The Posthouse

    Version 1.0.0

    207 Downloads

    The Post House The Post house is a small resident building in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire. It is an English rural building built in late 18 century. Name, “The Post House”, is written in gothic lettering on façade, but most likely the name has nothing to do with the mail or post office. The road is called Post Street, so I guess the name of the building comes from here. My BAT is very similar to real building, but not an exact copy. The back side and the extension is my imagination. However, I have got inspiration from 3D Warehouse Sketchup model of this house, but the BAT 100 % my own work. I haven’t used 3D Warehouse model’s textures as I feel that better result can achieve if I use my own texture bases. In real life the Post House is most likely a resident house, but I offer the BAT as CO$$ office. I need small rural offices for my SC4 plays, so I made this as such. I have included a red brick variation of this BAT and it is a R$$ residential building The model is HD and with Maxis and Dark Night version. Night versions share IDs, so if you have both versions in the city, those will most likely conflict. It has a custom foundation, so it is slope friendly.

  12. SANTANA ISLAND - Winter View 01

    Do you think that today is June 2017? Today is March 1951 !!!
  13. Hello! This is my first attempt to make relatively detailed map, it is inspired from Aegean Region of Turkey and from my home town Atça. It is Atça-Meander River Turkey map from my favourite map maker Mr Miyagi, map theme is Owl's Mediterranean Temperate Theme There will be small towns and they will be mostly focused on agriculture. No big cities no traffic jams (I hope) will exist on this project just like in real life. I won't be able to detail too much because of performance issues so I will try to keep it balanced. I will be sharing process and if you have something to say just share it with me that would be nice Here is the first shot near meander river:
  14. Replies: Ducio: Thanks and no worries, the old one was way to industrial for its size. kschmidt: Thanks and I agree, the game does tend to upgrade to med wealth quickly. Ironically, they then go abandoned and get twice as many low wealth living there but nevermind. Entry 3: Were back on track! So, don't panic I haven;t started the city again this time, instead I've done the expected and normal thing and expanded the city that we finished with last time. Anyway lets jump right in. So, when we last left off, the population of Harrington and its surrounds was growing at quite a steady pace. There was a place to take your trash, farm jobs for all and some competitive farmers for all your commercial needs! Lets see how things have changed shall we/ Firstly, we expanded northwards and eastwards from the centre of the area moving further away from Harrington. Eastwards, where the lack of other buildings and no zoning laws allowed some sizeable farms to start up has seen the biggest growth of the two directions with the area now looking like this and providing a large portion of job opportunities for the area. While Northwards, the recently named Berrin Woods meant that due to mainly laziness, the farms were a lot smaller in size and less dense. This area also saw the growth of Berrin, where the local farmers, tired of having to traverse the forests on a dirt track set up camp and built a small chapel (OOC: Not that I'm religious, I just grew up in a village and every village had a church at its centre) , some basic trailer style homes and some rather out of place row houses but oh well, as long as they're happy. Meanwhile moving back into Harrignton we saw the first merger of two settlements when, some rather cheap and inexplicably unappealing houses were built between Harrington and Henburn. (OOC: This is why in future maps you'll see a prefix after Henburn's name (eg Henburn-Har-). I plan on doing this with ever town that grows into another one with the main (usually largest) town giving its prefix to the other settlement). Meanwhile, to the south, across the river another small town, Roweaton sprung up and quickly gained some traction with its growth. Lets see if the eagle eyed can see why this might be (before you look at the next picture). Yep, you guessed it (or didn't, I don't know). Roweaton has the regions first decdicated commercial ventures! Due to a lack of space and the reluctance of the farmers to sell their land in Harrington, market stall owners decided to set up proper businesses to the south. Harrington district council didn't mind that much though, they own all the local ferry services and as that was the only way into and out of Roweaton, they were making a tidy profit off of it. [ Roweaton didn't care either. In fact, they cared so little about the lack of actual ways to get to Roweaton they built the areas grandest structure in the form of this permanent market hall! Commercial progress has been made! In fact, farmer Pippin and Poppin were the only ones who weren't overly excited by the developments but oh well, progress has to be made! Speaking of which that's all the progress we have for now so I guess, we'll have to go make some more! EDIT: Oh and we just hit 10k people in the region! Till next time!

    SM2 Abandoned Train Stop. This train stop has been sitting in my hard drive for too long. Time to release it!. Best plopped in those seedy parts of town....or industrial areas perhaps. Plop cost 3000 Bulldoze cost 300 Power req 44 Capacity 7500 It still acts as a passenger station plus it will let freight trains go through it. No dependencies and as a bonus it is also Maxis vanilla rail compatible. Works like a charm! Enjoy. Simmer2

  17. Bern, der Schweizer Kapital !

    Bern, der Schweizer Kapital ! This month we first visit the land of watches, chocolate, cheese and beyond ! This month three part "Show us what your building" took some effort away of this CJ build but gives a showcase of what might lies beyond the city building corner; specialy I like to see the grow of the SFBT Bern set wich would be awesome. Landmarks for this city aren´t well available so a lot to research. This map just like the Munchen map covers a imaginative part of the Berner land. Let´s start with innercity area ! Bern tram network got like a T shape in the downtown area, line to right going to the station area ! Kirchenfeld area accros the river on the left, houses a lot of educational facilties like the State library, Natural and Historic Museum. Rural west of Bern developing into a modern town ! Swiss gantry is quit different from German & middle european one´s , not completly acurate but to give this a little bit of accent I now use the swiss gantry mod with faded pole´s to give it a more modern look ! To conclude some pictures of the city tile ! The basic city layout is established, next time we continue filling in some gapes. This city will be on of the three swiss cities in this series ! Hope you enjoyed this CJ and see you back next time !
