Re: Thank you! (10th anniversary of Kolbrów)

There has been a quite long pause since the last post, sorry for this, but some real life stuff occupied me.

We've reached the end of our trip around Kolbrów. As I said once, I really thought about going for a "retirement" after reaching 10 years. It's a plenty of time and the life is going further. However, now I see that I can still find some fun in playing that game. A game that became a kind of a sandbox of my own experiences. And, what is more important, a game that is a doorway into an awesome community.

And that's why I have to say to all of you: thank you! You, all my readers, give me the power to publish effects of my work. I'm really glad to know that there are some people from the entire world that watch, read and follow updates and sometimes even find an inspiration in them. All of your kind words in the comments that you have left troughout last decade make me still keeping this work. And saying: "that's not yet the end" :)



During last month I have shown you several places in the city that refers to real Kraków. I hope that you found them interesting, as well as short descriptions and summaries of their history. It's been just a tip of the iceberg. There's still plenty of other places in Kolbrów unvealed. Some of them are to be seen below, in a series of more or less characteristic locations of the city, some of them will still need to wait a bit.

But also the real Kraków has a lot to offer. I would never be able to recreate all its gems in the game. Moreover, there's much more beyond the achitecture - the history, culture, legends and local traditions that (as I've written at the very beginning of that series) create together an image of a multilateral city. I hope that you have a chance to visit it someday and discover all those little treasures by yourselves ;)

All real-life photos in this updates have been taken by feyss. I invite you to visit his flickr account. Thank you for allowing me to use them!

Regards!

Interesting way to make river banks in the second picture. I'm taking notes :D

I think I just started playing SC4 when you first started your MD here. It has always been a good source of inspiration for me ;)

Congratulations for those 10 years and thank you for your MD :thumbsup:

Thanks to you !  :thumbsup:
10 years is truly an incredible longevity for an MD.  ::)
Sure, you have inspired a lot of people, including me.  :)
In this update in particular, I very much appreciate the third in game pic with theses rivers banks and the 2 chimneys.
The contrast is both beautiful and very realistic!

I agree with feyss, the second picture is very beautiful with this edge of the river. The city is very pretty with the tram and all these diagonal buildings, and the night images give a beautiful spirit to the city. &apls
10 years is a lot for a game, but when you see CJs like yours he does not seem to be 10 years old but less! Thank you for these wonderful updates! :thumbsup:

I like your style. Looking at the pictures of your MD is like being at home.  ;D

And congrats for ten years development of your region. I hope to see Kolbrow growing over the next ten years, and I wish you a lot of tourists there. Maybe you can find me there too if I´ll find time for a journey!  &apls

Those urban riverbanks caught my eye as well, simple yet elegant and they mimic the rl pictures quite well.  &apls

Also glad to hear this it not the end, looking forward to the next decade!  :D  :thumbsup:

Congratulations my friend on your 10th anniversary! It should be we saying thank you!

I love the graphic design in the colours of Galand and also, I have to point out both the river banks and the railway snaking between the buildings, they're awesome and so much in Kolbrów style :satisfied:

Cheers!
