  1. Japan

    Today we'll be taking a look at one of the world's most beautiful countries - Japan. With an impressive mix of new and old structures, landscapes, natural wonders and more - there's plenty here to keep you in awe. Our tour begins with a trip to the famous Itsukushima Shrine in Hatsukaichi, located near Hiroshima on the western side of the country. It's one of the country's most sacred sites and popular tourist destinations - its 45 foot high Torii Gate is truly breathtaking. We travel east to Kyoto, the former capital of Japan - where we'll visit one of the country's most iconic landmarks: the famous Golden Pavilion. Originally completed in 1397, this site has been a symbol of Kyoto for centuries. Despite being completely rebuilt in 1955, this famous Zen temple still retains its charm and beauty - and its famed gold leaf exterior attracts plenty of tourists. Japan is a country that's also known for its stunning countryside - and its rice paddies are one of the country's most famous sites. With nearly 80% of the country covered in mountains, terraces like these can be seen for miles around. Japan is also one of the world's largest tea producers - and beautiful tea plantations are a common sight in the countryside. Not too far away is another one of the country's most iconic sights: Mount Fuji. Standing 12,388 feet tall, it's also an active stratovolcano with the last eruption coming in 1708. This legendary mountain has also been a pilgrimage site for centuries and is considered one of the country's most sacred destinations. With nearly 40 million people in its urban area, Tokyo is the largest urban area not just in Japan but also the entire world. Formerly known as Edo, it became the country's capital in 1868 and has transformed into a global economic and financial hub. The city is filled with stunning landmarks, such as it's famed Shibuya Intersection. This "scramble" intersection is said to be the busiest in the world and every light sends hundreds of people in every direction. The next stop is one of Tokyo's famous landmarks - the Tokyo Tower. Completed in 1958, it stands 1,092 feet tall and is the country's second tallest structure. The observation deck offers extraordinary views of the city - and is a must visit for anyone traveling to Tokyo. Our final stop is Tokyo's famous Shinjuku skyline - located in the heart of downtown, it's filled with stunning modern high rises and is especially impressive at nighttime.

  6. New Zealand

    Today we'll be taking a look at one of the world's most beautiful countries - New Zealand. With geysers, mountains, fjords, and waterfalls dotting the landscape - along with some of the of the world's most beautiful cities - any trip here is truly unforgettable. We'll start off in the countryside on the South Island - with the sheep population outnumbering people 7 to 1 - expect to see sheep and plenty of them for as far as the eye can see. You may get stuck in a traffic jam or two here as well.. New Zealand is a land of incredible natural wonders, and one of its most beautiful destinations can be found deep in Fiordland National Park. Cascading 1,904 feet from Lake Quill, there's really no other place on Earth like the incredible Sutherland Falls. Further north in Fiordland National Park is another one of New Zealand's wonders - Milford Sound. This incredibly grand fiord is a natural treasure, with towering peaks and pristine forests surrounding its shores. Not surprisingly, the fiord is a popular cruise ship destination as well. Our last stop on the South Island is none other than New Zealand's tallest point - 12,218 foot tall Mount Cook. The Maoris of the Ngai Tahu tribe who live here believe the mountain has a sacred connection as well - Aoraki (as its referred to in their language) is believed to be the most sacred of ancestors from which they descend. New Zealand is also a land of geysers - and some of the most amazing ones can be found in Rotorua. The famed Pohutu Geyser erupts up to 20 times a day - at heights up to 100 feet tall - making it one of the most popular attractions in the area. Our last stop will be in New Zealand's largest city - Auckland. Founded back in 1840, it's served as an important industrial and business center ever since, as well as being one of the chief seaports in the region. The skyline is home to a variety of stunning buildings - but they're all dwarfed by the magnificent Sky Tower. Rising 722 feet above the city, the observation deck offers some truly incredible views of the city - and if you're brave enough, bungee jumping as well. St. Patrick's Cathedral in the heart of downtown is one of the most beautiful sights in the city. The ANZ Centre is the city's third tallest skyscraper - rising 469 feet tall, it was the city's tallest building when completed in 1991. Some overviews of Auckland's stunning skyline.

  7. Hong Kong

    Today we're taking a look at Hong Kong - this global financial hub and port city boasts one of the world's most stunning and recognizable skylines. This city was originally under British rule for 99 years - but in 1997 it returned to China and now is a special administrative region (SAR). We're starting off in Kowloon - located on the mainland across Victoria Harbor, it's well known for its markets and endless apartments. The streets are constantly crowded, it's an area that's always filled with energy and activity. Hankow Road is one of Kowloon's most famous roads - with countless signs and advertisements crowding the streets, its one of the city's most distinctive sights. Tian Tan Buddha is one of Hong Kong's most famous attractions and offers incredible views of the city. Since it's opening in 1993, it has become well known in the city as a symbol of Buddhism and nature. At night, the skyline of Hong Kong is even more amazing. Here we take a look at the Bank of China Tower - one of Hong Kong's most distinctive and remarkable buildings. Standing 1,205 feet tall, it was Hong Kong and Asia's tallest building for two years after its completion in 1990. The 1,227 foot tall Central Plaza is another one of the city's most beautiful skyscrapers, it originally opened in 1992 and overtook the Bank of China Tower as the city's tallest until 2003. In 2003, Two International Finance Center was completed and overtook Central Plaza as the city's tallest at the time, standing 1,352 feet tall. Another one of Hong Kong's most famous skyscrapers can be seen close by as well - The Center was completed in 1998 and is currently the city's 5th tallest with a height of 1,135 feet tall. Hong Kong's tallest building is the International Commerce Centre - rising 1,538 feet tall, this incredible building took nearly 8 years to build and was finally completed in 2010. It's currently the world's 10th tallest building, and the views from the top are truly extraordinary.

  8. Quiero su ayuda. En días pasados justo cuando puse a correr el juego, me aparecieron unos mensajes que no pude leer bien que hablaban de un mal funcionamiento de drivers/ driver entre ellos creo el directX driver. No pude verlo porque los cerré erroneamente con el touchpad. Volví a abrir el juego, y este corrió con normalidad hasta que entré a los escenarios y me percaté que no había coches, y muchos gráficos estaban como barridos/ pixeleados. Los analisis de trafico funcionan pero no se ven automotores corriendo por la calles (todos los autómatas). Recuerdo hace mucho tuve un problema similar y no recuerdo bien si se trataba de un driver ¿Alguno le ha pasado? ¿Que puedo hacer? Espero sus respuestas. Pongo fotos para que vean la ausencia de automatas.
  9. Berlin (Pt. 2/2)

    Our trip to Berlin resumes with a visit to another one of its oldest and most famous landmarks - Brandenburg Gate. Opened in 1791, it was built on orders by Prussian king Frederick William II to commemorate the restoration of the country after the early Batavian Revolution. It's amazed locals and tourists alike ever since. The Gendarmenmarkt is one of the city's most famous squares, constantly filled with action. With its historic twin cathedrals on both sides, Französischer Dom and Deutscher Dom, its a sight you won't want to miss. Deutscher Dom at night. A view of the streets of Berlin - with one of its most famous avenues, the Unter Den Linden cutting across towards the top. Staatsbibliothek is a prominent universal library constructed in 1903, located on the famous Unter Den Linden. At night time, it's truly spectacular. Unter Den Linden from above.

  10. Berlin (Pt. 1/2)

    After taking a look at Rome in the last couple of updates, we're now taking a look at another one of Europe's great cities - the capital of Germany, Berlin. The city is filled with famous monuments - and the first couple that we'll visit are located on the banks of the Spree River. The Alte Nationalgalerie (the long museum at the top of the picture) was opened in 1876 and houses an impressive collection of artwork and is one of the city's most popular attractions. The Berliner Dom towards the bottom part of the mosaic was opened in 1905 and is one of Europe's most impressive cathedrals. Berliner Dom at night. The Victory Column (Siegessaule) and its roundabout can be found in the Tiergarten - opened in 1873, it was built to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War. The Reichstag was originally opened in 1894 to house the German Empire's Imperial Diet. A massive fire in the 1930s along with damage from World War II led to the structure falling into disuse as the parliament used other buildings in the city. Eventually, it was partially refurbished in the 1960s and had an entire renovation in the 1990s, giving it a unique, modern look. The building once again is home to the German parliament. Rotes Rathaus (Red Town Hall) is another one of the city's most famous landmarks - opened in 1869, it serves as the home of the mayor and the government of the Federal state of Berlin. The Fernsehturm TV Tower is Berlin's most prominent landmark - rising 1,198 feet tall, its the tallest building in Germany. The views from the top are truly extraordinary. Fernsehturm is located close to Alexanderplatz - one of the city's most famous squares and one of its most vital transport hubs for over 100 years.

  11. Rome (Pt. 2/2)

    Our tour of Rome continues on with one of the world's most famous buildings - the Colosseum. Opened in A.D. 80 and seating more than 50,000 spectators, this impressive arena was home to countless gladiator fights for more than 400 years. While a good portion of the structure has been lost throughout the centuries, there's still plenty left to explore - making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. Once the heart and marketplace of the city, today the Roman Forum lies in a sprawling heap of ruins. With likes of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony once walking across these grounds - there's history everywhere you go. The entire complex was abandoned shortly after the fall of the Roman Empire and quickly fell into a state of disrepair - much of the stone here was used by the locals, leaving many of the legendary temples incomplete. Finally, near the end of the 18th century, large scale excavations started to take place, preserving this legendary landmark. The entire complex remains sunken under the street level - the result of countless excavations over the years. One of the most beautiful and romantic spots in all of Rome is the heart-shaped Villa Borghese park, located in the center of the city. The Giardino del Lago (Lake Garden) is a popular destination - there's no better way to spend a day than renting a boat and rowing across these peaceful waters. With cherry trees dotting much of the park - spring is a truly magical time of year here. The next stop is the Verano Cemetery - a spot with plenty of history as many famous people have been buried here over the centuries. Since it's founding in the early 19th century, its been one of the cities most important cemeteries ever since. Just behind St. Peter's Square in The Vatican lies the stunning dome of St. Peter's Basilica - standing 448 feet tall, it's by far the tallest historic building in the area. Regarded by many as being one of the holiest Catholic shrines on the face of the planet - it's been the traditional burial site for popes and other important religious figures since the 10th century. To this day, the structure remains a place of pilgrimage - with the pope making common appearances for liturgies.

They were not "photoshopped in" - and neither were the buildings (most were existing BATs on the STEX/LEX, and a few were custom BATs that I got from 3d warehouse, exported them, and used in the game). --- Previous Update: "Rome (Pt. 1/2)" Thanks to @Tyberius06, @Fantozzi, @RandyE, @scotttbarry, @gigius76, @Silur, @Manuel-ito, @huzman, @jakis, @CorinaMarie, @mike_oxlong, @Toby Ferrian, @mrsmartman, @tariely, @_Michael, @bobolee, @matias93, @raynev1, @Jonas_Chaves, @MushyMushy, @The British Sausage, @redfox85, @Mr Saturn64, @SC4L0ver, & @Krasner for all the likes and reactions
  12. Rome (Pt. 1/2)

    After taking a look at Ancient Rome - we'll now take a look at this incredible city in the modern day. Our trip to Rome begins with a trip to one of Rome's most famous squares - the stunning Piazza Navona. This square dates back from the 1st century CE, and was originally the site of many great athletic games over the years. Today, it serves as the perfect gathering place for locals and tourists alike. Rome has nearly 2,000 fountains - but perhaps the most impressive of them all is the incredible Trevi Fountain. This baroque masterpiece was completed in 1762 and has been one of the most popular destinations in the city ever since. It's been said that if you throw a coin into the pool with your right hand over your left shoulder - you'll ensure a trip back to Rome in the future. Perhaps the most well preserved building of Ancient Rome, the Pantheon remains to this day as a temple to the Roman Gods. The circular oculus at the top allows light to enter, as well as the rain and any other natural elements. While there's numerous ways to get to the Pantheon, you can't go wrong with the time-tested solution: a horse drawn carriage through the streets of Rome. Located entirely inside of Rome, The Vatican might be the world's smallest country, but it holds many treasured landmarks. St. Peter's Square is one of the world's most famous squares - it's 283 columns, standing 55 feet tall each are truly unmistakable. Papal audiences are held here regularly, drawing big crowds - but its Easter and Christmas Masses are by far the largest, drawing tourists from the world over. On a steep hillside in the heart of Ancient Rome is where you'll find one of the world's most famous staircases - the Spanish Steps. These 135 steps connect the Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Square) at the bottom to the Trinità dei Monti church at the top - and making the climb is something that you won't want to miss. The millions of tourists over the years making the climb hasn't come without a price, however. With the staircase falling into a state of disrepair, with weeds and cracks taking over - a multi-million dollar restoration was called for and recently completed.

  13. Introduction

    This is my first attempt at City Journals, so please keep that in mind. Anyway, welcome to Acadia City, Pulnanski! I have been working on this city for 3 months. Here is the city as it is located in the region. It is in the top left corner: And here is a hastily stitched-up picture of the entire city: At the time of writing, Acadia City houses 1,009,618 Sims within the city tile. I know this because it tells me in the region view picture. Acadia City is full of small neighborhoods, each with their own feel. There is a 500 year old borough made up of Maxis Chicago Row Cottages and Bungalows: And High-Rise-Land, which houses 3 out of 4 people in Acadia: A neighborhood full of c.p. Rowhouses, with custom backyards I made myself: A Low Wealth Commercial Service District made of @madhatter106 BATs: Commercial Skyscraper Land: Nice Suburbs to the north: Poor Maxis Chicago neighborhoods: And there we go! The journal is done! Any feedback would be appreciated.
  14. 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!

  15. London - Landmarks

    For the final chapter of London, we're taking a look at some more of the city's most iconic landmarks. We begin with a look back in time to the 1200s - to the Old London Bridge. Constructed in 1209 - this bridge stood for over 600 years as the main route across the River Thames. While long gone, various drawings from the era depict a bustling bridge surrounded by medieval houses on both sides. Unfortunately, the design of the bridge led to its ultimate demise, as it impeded river traffic - and was eventually demolished in the 1800s to make way for a more modern bridge. The next stop is one of London's most awe-inspiring buildings - St. Paul's Cathedral. Designed by famed architect Christopher Wren and opened in 1708, it was part of a major rebuilding program after the Great Fire of London in 1666. The cathedral serves as the seat of the Bishop of London and the mother church of the Diocese of London - and is one of the city's most popular attractions as well. The London Eye is one of the city's most popular attractions - located on the banks of the River Thames, it was the world's largest Ferris wheel when completed in 2000. If you can get past the long lines, the views of the city's South Bank from the top are incredible. We continue on with a trip to one of London's most famous bridges - Tower Bridge. Not to be confused with the original London Bridge (as seen in the first picture, since replaced with more modern versions) - this Victorian Gothic landmark has been one of the city's most distinctive sights since its completion in 1894. Close by Tower Bridge is another one of the city's famous landmarks - the Tower of London. This historic structure was built back in the 1190s and has served as a fortress, palace, and prison. Our next stop is one of the city's most famous squares - Trafalgar Square. Its named after the famed Battle of Trafalgar - a key British naval victory in 1805 - and it's been a popular gathering place for people (and pigeons) since 1840. The iconic Nelson's Column in the middle of the square is one of the city's most famous monuments. Our last stop is one of the world's most iconic buildings - Big Ben. This famous clock tower is located on the north end of the Palace of Westminster and has chimed since 1859. Recent maintenance repairs though means you'll have to wait until 2021 to hear it regularly again.

  16. Recently began having problems with Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 and SimCity4. After an OS update, the game would only run in software mode. I have done a lot of digging trying to find the exact cause, but so far no luck. I have gone back to Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 until this gets fixed.
  17. Hello fellas! I am starting this topic because I've got an issue while trying to patch my digital copy of SC4, bought via Origin Games platform. A few years ago I managed to patch my game correctly, but now it seems impossible. My SC4 version is 1.1.610.0, but I can't apply the 1.1.638.0 version I need to start using mods again (I formatted my PC some time ago and I didn't reinstall the game until today). Is there someone who's experienced the same problem?? Please let me know if you found a solution. Thanks!
  18. London - The City & The Shard

    Our trip to London continues with another look at its incredible skyline. After taking a look at Canary Wharf in the first update, we're taking a look at London's other main financial district - The City of London, also known as The City, along with The Shard today. One of the city's most distinctive skyscrapers is the 591 foot tall 30 St Mary Axe (also referred to as the Gherkin, due its resemblance to a cucumber). Since opening in 2004, it has received many awards for its unique style and ecological footprint. Three of London's tallest buildings (from left to right) - Tower 42 (Completed 1980, 600 feet tall), 99 Bishopsgate (Completed 1976, 341 feet tall), and 122 Leadenhall Street (Completed 2014, 738 feet tall - also known as the cheese grater) Another rainy day in London. A couple various shots of The City. The Shard has become one of London's most recognizable buildings since opening in 2013 - rising 86 floors and 1,016 feet tall, its the tallest building in the United Kingdom and offers breathtaking views from the top.

  19. Is there a mod that reduce the number of residents in medium density buildings? I haven't played SC4 for a long time, but I remember that earlier these 5-floor buildings in my game had fewer residents than now (about 200 as for now). Or it depends just on lots itself, like certain residental lots has less number of occupants?
  20. London - Canary Wharf

    London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. It's a city known for its culture, history, and traditions - and is one of the world's most visited cities. Additionally, it's one of the world's greatest commercial, financial, and industrial centers - and is widely known as a truly global city. Over the next three update updates I'll be covering some of the city's most incredible sights and landmarks - starting with Canary Wharf. This major banking district is located on the Isle of Dogs on the banks of the River Thames - and has been home to some of the busiest ports in the world over the years. Today, its best known for its incredible collection of skyscrapers like the 771 ft tall One Canada Square (lower middle below, with the pyramid top), 655 ft tall 8 Canada Square (HSBC Tower, lower left below), and the 655 ft tall 25 Canada Square (middle skyscraper below, citigroup signage) - which are among the tallest in the United Kingdom.

  21. Prague

    Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and one of the most picturesque cities in all of Europe. It's a city steeped in history - once the capital of the kingdom of Bohemia, its been a cultural, political, and economic center for centuries. The first stop in our tour is the Petrín Lookout Tower - located at the top of a small hill, this 62m tall Eiffel Tower lookalike offers stunning views of the city. Not too far away is another one of Prague's famous landmarks - St. Vitus Cathedral. Construction took nearly 600 years, finally completing in 1929 - but this magnificent Gothic cathedral was well worth the wait. Countless religious and coronation ceremonies have been held here - making it one of the most important landmarks in the city. To make it into the old town, you'll have to cross the Charles Bridge, spanning the Vlatva River. Completed in 1402, this stunning Gothic styled bridge is one of Prague's most famous landmarks and one of the world's most famous bridges. We've made it into the famed old town. With the incredible Týn Church and Astronomical Clock close by, this stunning town square is steeped in history. The aforementioned Týn Church (fully known as the Church of Our Lady before Týn) is one of the world's most beautiful Gothic churches - built back in the mid 1400s and completed by the mid 1600s, it towers some 260 feet above the surrounding rooftops of Prague. The cathedral also serves as a gallery of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque works - its a historic site in Prague that anyone visiting here should be sure to visit. Like many other similar cities and towns across Bohemia and Central Europe, Prague enjoys a rich tradition of Christmas markets. Starting in early December and ending by early January, the stalls here have an unbelievable amount of goods on sale - from treats, decorations, handmade goods and more. For those braving the elements - the selection is second to none and its a trip you won't soon forget. No Christmas market is complete though of course without an enormous Christmas tree - and the ones here can get as high as 100 feet tall, making it truly a sight to behold. Once nightfall hits and the snow begins to clear - you can get a clear view of the twinkling lights and all the magic this place has to offer. Another one of Prague's famed traditions is the legendary fireworks display that takes place on New Year's Eve - the entire town gathers in the square and surrounding streets to take in the breathtaking views.

  22. 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.

  23. 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. (No photoshop used - the cliffs are a custom mod of mine which can be found here.

  24. My tram cars have disappeared on only one of my tram loops. They were there for several days, but they vanished yesterday and have not come back. The query tool shows them as operational with the same amount of traffic as before. I have not added or subtracted any mods or content. Obviously, I have the NAM installed and I am using the TTC_Tram mod and the European Bus and Tram Stops mod. As I said, it is only affecting one of two tram loops. The picture below shows the affected area.
  25. 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.

I actually got started on a Yosemite update a real long time ago (late May of last year I think? Never made much progress on it though.) and whipped up a really fancy national park themed banner like the ones you mentioned. Perhaps I'll have to give a couple US national parks another go in the future @TekindusT Thank you! @jmsepe Thanks for the nice words! @kschmidt Thanks for the comment!
