Hah, yeah, it happens sometimes :D Don't worry! ;)

Regarding the pictures - well, those views are really magical. Firstly because of an excellent organic-layout, secondly because of the atmosphere of small villages dispersed around the empty wilderness being first shelters of civilization  :thumbsup:
Thank you for visiting Kolbrów, and for being for last ten years!

One of the best region view I have ever seen. :)

ÆRDEN ~ winter update

Hello everyone, wanted to thank you all for the nice comments past year. I've been thinking about the future of Ærden lately - which sounds more dramatic than intended - and come to realise in order to keep to show rolling, so to speak, I've got to prioritise the attention given to various sc4-related activities. As part of that effort, a downsizing of this MD will be put into effect in order to achieve shorter, yet more frequent updates *fingers crossed* Now the critical reader may interpret this as another way of saying I'm skimping nearly a year of replies . .  $%Grinno$% . .  ::) . . I truly do appreciate the kind and supportive words!  &apls

So last update showing the overviews got me thinking what would excite me for the next growth impulse to the region. And the answer, as always, is more lots!

At first the plan was to relot an old R$ set. Rummaging through backups I stumbled upon the likewise old Dirty Farms, which as the name implies are stage 1 ID lots masquerading as farms. While remodelling, however, I recalled applying the Rural Patch, which should count IR jobs as proper industrial for the regional capacity. In other words, given the extensive farms the need for additional industrial capacity isn't as pressing. Moreover, it should already be possible to grow >3 stage IR lots . . 


. . and lo and behold, proof of concept stage 5 farm!

Thusfar Traelonisk is the only city actually capable of stage 5, so I figured a set of stage 4 farms would make more sense, for regional use. And what do you know, right on cue Fantozzi released his excellent Colossus Farming! The landhouses & various crops were just what was needed to initiate lotting in earnest, and before long I'd had quite a set on my hands. Here's a selection of BAT sets lined up, and which will be used in various capacities.
 

Everything blends together quite well I reckon.

In addition to an RCI lot set, the need for fitting utilities & civics will also be addressed. And that's it for today, thanks for reading.

In case you hadn't done so yet, go check out Fantozzi's props, lot of rural goodness in there!  :thumbsup:

A winter update without snow... ah, this global warming...  $%Grinno$% Jokes beside, it's a horrible wheater in Poland now, it's raining all the time with cold wind.... brr.... :(

Anyway, back to the update... oh yeah, I understand that feeling when you realize that playing the game to be showable sometimes doesn't turn well enough. Nice that you think of your readers (or at least I understand this way :D ), but don't forget that it should also give fun for you.

Maybe even a tour around already exiting stuff would be nice idea? with some weather effects shouldn't be that hard to prepare, huh? ;)

And by the way - Merry Christmas!

ÆRDEN ~ a proper winter update
« Reply #590 on: January 14, 2018, 12:17:46 PM »
hey everyone, for today a small trip around the region during winter time!

Unfortunately the map doesn't match the winter wonderland but here's the four places we'll be looking at going from North down to South.




So to start Gaellithorp located at the top right of the region, and the second tile I developed. The first tile of the region actually is bottom left of the region.  :D 



At the time I went all out with this particular development concept, i.e. the palisades, and to make everything fit within took quite some effort and deserves a closer look in the future. As we leave the forest we find Haefwold on our way, which is the northern most 'Roman Legacy' tile in the region.



We'll be just passing through for now though and going down further still we pass the remains of Aebora monastery.



The ruins are a silent reminder of a violent past, as the monastery was plundered and burned down by Vaendels, my fictional take on the Vandals which the Roman Empire had an adversarial attitude towards. 



Finally we arrive at Leanderas which used to be a thriving Roman port of which the fortress bears witness, though it has fallen in disrepair since.

As you may have gathered by now the history of Aerden includes being part of the the Western Roman Empire. As such there're 3 'Roman Legacy' tiles in the region which deserve a closer look in the future as well. That's it for today though, hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks kbieniu7, art128 & Akallan for your comments!

What a... vastness... That's an incredible region! I propably repeat it the hudreth time, but I'm always amazed by your works. Used to highly developed cities and infrastructure, that calm and wilderness is magical  &apls

Also, nice work with palisades. And the organic layout of trails and paths.
