I agree fully with kbieniu7, murder is the only one of two words possible to describe such a motorway. Realism is the second. ;) Also, the way you mix W2Ws of different styles gives the city a very authentic feel.

Love the Berlin recreation you showed lately. When I look at it, I realise its been way too long since I was in Berlin. Must be remedied. ()stsfd()

I like the picture from your Berlin city. I have to share with you a picture from my old Berlin recreation, I got one from the same angle  :thumbsup:

Woow, time flies and I don't post much, sorry   :-[

Here's one huge mosaic from Alijstar that I made for the 'City Showcase' challenge from ST. I had to share it with you  ;)

As you can see, I would be able to post more pictures soon of that part of the city.

19. ALIJSTAR - 'THE CITY OF A THOUSAND BRIDGES'


(you can click on the picture for a larger version as usual)



Hope you like it  :)

- REPLIES -

This motorway looks like a murder on this beautiful urban area... Like it! So realistic!  ;D

I see a possibility for an improvement! The street going trough this small bridge with tramway line seems to be a busy route. Maybe the tram stop could be moved to be between one way roads? More space and more safe for the passengers ;)

Thank you! 'Murder' is the perfect word to describe this. I indeed like to do this in-game while I hate that kind of thing IRL.

Regarding the tram station, that's a pertinent remark, but there is already another station just next to the highway bridge on the left of the picture. They would be too close of each other and I prefer to keep the symmetry of that highway interchange.

I agree fully with kbieniu7, murder is the only one of two words possible to describe such a motorway. Realism is the second. ;) Also, the way you mix W2Ws of different styles gives the city a very authentic feel.

Thank you too! I wish I could post more pictures from that Berlin recreation soon, but it's quite difficult to build an actual city.

I like the picture from your Berlin city. I have to share with you a picture from my old Berlin recreation, I got one from the same angle  :thumbsup:

Thanks too my friend! I wish I saw those pictures but unfortunately they disappeared like in many other CJs  &mmm

Thanks all for the kind words!

Here's a picture from an old town of mine:



Now that MGB has released his new UnderBridge set, it motivated me to finish it  :D

This bridge in this deep valley is a very good idea and the village is already visually appealing.  :thumbsup:
I'm looking forward to seeing more.  :popcorn:

That is going to look great, really good with placing the railway bridge there! However, I hope that the wind turbine is just temporarily, for "in-game-technical" purposes :D

I just try to sound like an engineer, who knows that putting a giant wind turbine just in the centre of a town, and - what is more - facing a giant railway bridge, doesn't sound like the best idea  ;D

A bit more...

As you can see, the town is located deep in the valley, with steep roads that lead to the surrounding plateau.



And thank you kbieniu7, vortext and manga rivotra for the kind comments! Of course, the wind turbine is just here to help out, it would be a political suicide to actually build this monster here  :D

This town already looks nicely dense and organic from a far. That will become even more interesting when you will have installed te nature all around  :popcorn:

Really, awesome layout! That's exactly what I like! Can't wait to see the slopes covered with trees :)

Regarding Nanami's question, for me the station is quite far as it was the closest possible place because of the terrain shape. But also think, how is the city going to grow and how it is going to organize its transportation ;)

More WIP! The town is transforming from a poor town mountain to a select spa town:

In rural areas, train stations are not necessary in the middle of the city, and sometimes they even lead to the creation of a new neighbourhood. That's what I tried to do here. The bridge has an influence on it too. Of course, it makes travelling by train less attractive, it's why buses will connect the city with the station. Thanks for the comment  ;)

Dense, that's how I like to build town! Of course, nature will come later. My sims will need some fresh air! Merci  ;)

Thank you too! I will try to not put forests too close of the city that time and put meadows between them to make a progressive transition  :thumbsup:

If you're in reference to the sidewalk mod, I believe it is a custom texture that has been used. :)

And looking great feyss - I love the whole atmosphere of this town
