  1. Winter Forest

    From the album Winter Wonderland (S3-21-M)

    The forest during winter is more awesome than one would think. The last leaves have fallen, thin fog covers everything and the first snow begins to fall.
  2. Entry 43 : The Longest Night (5E139)

    Hey hey! Welcome to Ashford! Ah but who cares? Winter is finally here! 'Tis the season to be jolly as the winter holidays have started and a thick blanket of snow covers most of northern Cathnoquey. Traffic is almost at a standstill as the slippery roads have frozen over. It's the perfect season for desaturated postcards, and ski stations all across the Northern Territory have started operating for the winter. University is on winter break, but the university district is still fairly busy at this time of year. Holiday shopping still needs doing for some, as 'tis also the season to share! With the roads blocked up, most people rely on public transit, or stay at home where it's cosy and warm. Yet, for the most part, the city isn't completely locked, and people are still going to work. It definitely is the season to visit Ashford's ski resorts and saunas. Tourists can pack up, come in, and have some coffee and cakes while watching the snow fall over the city while the ponder their holiday plans. City Hall Lake hasn't quite frozen yet, but the canals have. Soon, people can finally go ice-skating again. There is a sense of wonder across the city, as with every winter, as the snow transforms the landscape. There is a sense of wonder across the city, as with every winter, as the snow radically transforms the landscape. The city continues to function, but everything is also so -quiet-. Can't blame the people gone for the winter holidays, or who decided not to rush to work today. Besides, there are several traffic jams in certain areas, as not every car uses winter tires, and accidents become the norm. You'd expect different from a city used to snow in winter. The M-3 interstate is still operational, though, with road equipment finally coming into play! In the Northern Territories, despite the milder climate winters are harsh. Yet every year, snow comes ever later as the climate warms. Many people point out to snow falling as definite proof that hell is not freezing over, yet the first snowfalls used to happen a month earlier just two decades ago in this part of the world. At least 5E139 isn't the warmest year of the Fifth Era or on record at all - that dubious honor does belong to '136 however. It's time to turn on the geothermal plant. Electricity provides most heating in most households, but there's a specially dedicated network that provides warm water to most. But already, in the deceptively quiet city a small emergency is occurring. A small avalanche further down the railway has shut off rail traffic in and out of Ashford. Passengers and commuters from further down the metro area end up stranded in the frozen city. For several, it's the occasion to wander into midtown and enjoy the fine dining establishments. Further in the suburbs, the bustle of city life and the constant noise and music give way to a surreal landscape of silence and peace. The first snowfalls always come to the delight of kids, especially in the mountain communities of greater Ashford, such as Balmung, NCT, where they can sleigh down the steep roads. Ironically, the new trains that are due to replace Ashford Subway rolling stock can't handle the ice! Stranded regional trains come to the rescue. Flights rush in to land before an expected blizzard later today, and another accident is narrowly averted. A jet has become stranded on the airport's main runway, and ATC has mistakenly given clearance to the next plane to land. Thankfully, the flight crew noticed the runway intrusion on time and abandoned the landing. 'tis the longest night tonight, and at barely 4PM night has already fallen. Traffic into midtown as the snow begins falling again... ...and it is soon time for commuters to go home from work, either by road... ...or by rail, at least on the still operational metro lines. Tonight's big game has had to be cancelled after the away team (from Vesper Bay) failed to reach Ashford on time tonight. Now that's disappointing. The Ashford Rangers are not top of the league (Glenvale played almost perfectly this season and leads them by 5 points) but they're on a 10 win streak, so there's a feeling that anything is possible for the Blitzball league's recently promoted underdogs. The mayor must be preparing their New Year's address, but the rotunda and most upper story rooms seem to be empty tonight. Empty streets in downtown Ashford. By now most people are already done with their holiday shopping. The biggest celebration, Saturalia, is in only a few days, and is a grand occasion to visit family, exchange gifts and feast around roast. The Wayfell celebration has spread to all over Tamriel and even further, such as Cathnoquey, and even Akavir. Rail services resume, allowing people to finally return home to their families. The longest night of the year is just starting. And thus, the fair people of Ashford are falling asleep, as several more inches of snow begin to fall over their roofs. The winter season is starting, and truly, 'tis the season to be merry. That's it for today folks! Hope you enjoyed, this is a shorter than usual entry as I'm very busy, but a new city's in the works so stay updated! Happy holidays to all ^^
  3. This is a quick one: Can anyone tell me what tells CS-snowfall to create the little snow drifts around the bottom of buildings' walls? Is it just the mesh of the model being at 0-y? And can one get Props to create lil snowdrifts like these?
  4. Cathnoquey isn't just a land of green hills and rolling meadows. There is a city, in the far north of the country, a city of snow and almost constant cold weather. Welcome to Northpoint... The town was built in a valley, nested between the Neville Brook Hills and the Sterling Range. For up-and-coming and hopelessly irreverant urban planner Robert Preston, this could be the place that would kickstart his career. As the plane began its final approach to Northpoint Airport (NPR), Preston finally got a look at the city he was to call home. The people of Northpoint were rugged. Would he be able to blend in? His plane finally landed on the near frozen runway. Luckily, there was no snowstorm that day. After what seemed like an eternity, the plane finally came to a stop by the domestic terminal. Once he retrieved his luggage, Preston headed to the near empty parking lot. He briefly considered hopping on a streetcar into town, but he decided to hail a cab instead. "4500 Nahakara Avenue", he chirped as he sat in the warm car. The Khakiit taxi driver took a cautious look at the Imperial. "Khajiit drives slowly, yes? The snow has not been plowed this morning. Khajiit hates traffic divertions, but this one has no choice." The way out of the airport was clear, sure enough. Preston looked at his folders. One of his priorities, as set out by the City Board of Trustees, was to improve north-south traffic from the airport to the city centre. He quickly realised the job would be harder than he thought. "Why don't you use a motorway?" he asked the driver, who scoffed. "Motorway? We are not in Glenvale, this is our main road into town." Soon enough, the road became a fast but narrow road on the east bank of the river. There was a faster way, but it was closed down because of the weather conditions. Preston look a look at his files again. This road definitely needed upgrading, he noted. At least the road avoided a tedious drive through the Windsong residential district... Ten miles ahead, he smiled as they finally reached the heart of the city. "See this shop, southerner? Khajiit always goes at the end of his shift. They have the best hamburgers in all of the North Territories." Somehow, this relieved Preston a little. The Glenvale man had no clue what the people of Northpoint were like, and seemed to be under the impression they ate the most disgusting things. They drove through the business district. No high-rises here. There was little need for high rises. The population was only 100.000 souls, barely more than Westport and a mere fourth-to-fifth of the population of Glenvale. Land was relatively cheap, and earthquakes were relatively common in this part of the country. The heart of the city, the Mall, was little more than a battered and muddy field. Preston thought of changing that, too, but would the locals accept his mingling? Some of the taller towers were residential complexes and hotels. Whittler Avenue, the main east-west through-way, was better built, he thought. He smirked at the public curling facilities. The Khajiit driver noticed that. "Amusing, is it not? This one may be a cat-person, but this one won several prizes on these rinks. This one came third last year, during the '36 Briers." Preston only slightly nodded. This was the first time he ever heard of curling. The car finally stopped on the side of the road, in front of Preston's hotel room, on the corner of Whittler and Nakahara. Preston got off, took a look at the ruined fort, before making his way in. His hotel was decidedly warmer and his accommodation more like an apartment than a hotel room - all paid for by the Board of Trustees who hired him. It was barely 3.30 in the afternoon when the sun began setting down. Preston decided to have a walk through the city and a bite to eat. He hopped on a D line streetcar, and stopped at the Arboretum. He learned, streetcars were the main way to get around in the town. While there were bus lines, mostly concentrated along Whittler Avenue, streetcars served the main population centres and were far more reliable. He reached the Newquay district on foot, and ended up dining at the Red Mountain, a restaurant serving Morrowind and Vvardenfell specialities. On his way home, he noticed firemen rushing to a building on fire. He watched from afar for about ten minutes, but the cold was too biting, so he decided to head home. Preston fell asleep. The next day, he would meet the Board of Trustee, and his work would truly begin. But what would he do? The locals seemed grumpy and introverted. He truly was as far as he could possibly get from Glenvale. But tomorrow is another day, full of opportunity. And that concludes this entry! I hope you liked, and feel free to leave some feedback. :3 Oh, and that's a map of the streetcar network! See you next time!
  5. Dead?...or Snowfall

    While the update did havoc with the Mods and emptied J. Garner a new addition of Snowfall promises to make more options and problems to enjoy. Trams hit the highlight and lessons from my "test" city proved if the road is busy go for the 4 lane cause a 2 lane will come to a standstill. And, it is great you can have a tram only line separate from the road. I'm not ready for winter. Though it is nice to have the temperature to show daily highs and nightly lows, the need for the heat pipes and boiler or thermo facility will be coming. While my most favored Mods are being updated, I do have six of the fourteen back working. Sharp Junction Angles and Precision Engineering are a must have for me. New, for me, is Traffic President and I have much to learn to use this Mod with to any degree of expertise. While in the Asset Editor the features of Road Anarchy appeared and I have that bedrock to rely on as well. I'm pretty sure Road Anarchy was the main Mod that devastated J. Garner. So you know, I named this "test" city MyCoolcity. Like all my previous cities I let them live on. With a little more play a new city will arise and this time Mayor Haylo Stachoo will get some digs to make Nucky Thompson jealous. Mayor Haylo Stachoo
  6. One of the greatest mods available, Search Box seems to have been busted by the delightful Snowfall. It worked on Snowfall's launch day, but was incredibly slow at loading results and would hang. Now it crashes any map I attempt to load with SBM enabled and now I've disabled it, the game works fine. Noticed there's a few comments on Steam noting that it's broken too. Has anyone had any issues with this? Really hope the creator CWMlolzlz can enact a fix when possible.

  7. Your initial reactions to the newly announced Snowfall DLC!
  8. Cities: Skylines Snowfall

    In Snowfall, the difficulty heats up when the city cools down, thanks to a new in-game temperature reading that will have residents bundling up for warmth when the weather outside is frightful. Cosmetic weather, composed of rain and fog, will be added to Cities: Skylines as part of a free update, along with other features to be announced soon. Players who own Snowfall will get to face new challenges such as ensuring that their city infrastructure can handle seasonal heating demands – and, when the snow starts falling, that the roads can stay clear. New snowplow services will be required to prevent traffic from freezing in place, while new all-weather trams and expanded public transit options can help residents and visitors alike get around town – and visit the new winter parks and landmarks available in Snowfall. Snowfall will include: Now is the Winter of This Content: Rain and fog for existing maps, plus a new “Winter” map theme with snow and all of its challenges The Streetcars You Desire: Expanded public transportation options, including easier management of existing lines – and Trams, a new system demanded by fans World Warmth, Too: Cold weather increases demands for electricity, unless new water-based heat systems are in place Plowers to the People: Build a snowplow depot to keep traffic flowing during winter weather, and employ new road maintenance systems to keep your streets in shape New Chirps: #yeahthereare
