« on: June 29, 2015, 01:06:03 PM »


                                                                               Overview 2015



                                                                   Updates 2016 start on page 9

                                                                               Hello everybody ! :)

Having spent years to admire all the magnificent cities presented here, I decided to post some photos of mine in a kind of Mayor Diaries.
It will not be know a traditional MD, because I prefer to post a group of photos on the same theme, rather than to tell the story and the development of each of my "tiles".
In fact, I don't speak english very well and i have to use massively online translator to write or understand anything. ::)
I did my best but "my style" is pretty unusual because I love mixing various type of architecture and flora, even it's not realistic. I hope it won't be odd. :)
Feel free to ask me if you need some bat or prop information ;)
So I've spoken enough, now it's time for pictures ! I want to begin with something different  : my first update with only night views.
A lot of offices district and some old fashioned city center .
I hope that you will like it.  ;D

Edit 19th november 2015 : presentation post, titles and light on pics here and there

This a fine start to an MD.  The CBD is dazzling, and the smaller housing units help to balance things out.  That stage with the huge crowd in attendance provides just the right burst of atmosphere to the area, although I can see you have other entertainment venues, too.  Good work.

Indeed the mix of skyscrapers and wall-to-wall buildings is very interesting and well done.
I also like the work with the slopes.  :)

@ Vortext, metarvo, befastsocrates and art128
Thank you for your warm welcome. ::)
 I like very much the realizations of each of you, Bat or Mayor Diaries and it is always an honor to receive compliments of people so talented. :)
 I love night pic because it's easier to hidde littles mistakes  :P, but now I take the risk to turn on the light ! So, I hope not to disappoint with my next update.

This time it's all about city center, rather dense. Not or a very few skyscrapers, but nothing rural either yet ( it will comes in the next ones updates...... ). I hope you will like it.

                                                     Update 2 : Urban views

17 Here you can see a channeled river in a rather dense urban area, with mix of old building and more modern ( something pretty european I suppose )


18 Same at night



19 The same district seen since another angle. Here is visible the half underground train station, the rail road line passing under the river.



20 Some classic dense wall to wall developments close to the regional covered stadium.



21 Same at night



22 same seen since another angle



23 Here some modern development close to the monorail station, and behind older district



24 same at night another angle



25 A large view of the same old district with some pedestrian alleys and plazas. Modern building appears here and there close to more historic ones.


26 On a another tile, nobody in the backyard of the college at this time but few people around the brick town hall



27 Another tile again, a busy historical plaza at the start of the autumn



28 Start of autumn again, last sunny days on the terraces of this sloppy park, nice view from the residential building too.



29 And, the last one, something different with this center town divide between modern residence and luxurious residence in the west close to wild seashore, and a old part in the east side, both joined by this park in front of the town hall.

Wow, this looks very good for a start, imo. Very nice MMP work, especially with the parks on this and the last update. And I think that it's a really good idea to mix modern buildings with older ones, loooks more realistic imo.

Really nice new update!
On the first picture I loved how you used the statue in the middle of the pond. The sloppy park is really well done too.

I love the mix of buildings in your city!! I don't know why, but its atmosphere makes me think about cities on the Dalmatian coast, perhaps because of the palms between the Central-European architecture. I just felt the same when I saw the last image in the picture competition. Keep the good work!!  &apls

OMG the mix of buildings is strange but nice at the same time ! I like how you can create those residential areas using those mix of buildings.

Welcome here and see you in the next update  :thumbsup:

So first, the zoom 4 views

Some zoom 5 views
34.


35.


36. End of August  the chesnut is already turned to yellow but the corn isn't harvested yet


37. Zoom on some rural housing development where the 2 roads cross


And zoom 6 views
38.

I hope you like it. Thanks for wacht.

No love for the countryside yet?!  ???

Strange as it's really well crafted! I like all the MMPing, the apple orchard especially. The little village is nice too (though imho the palms in 31/34 gotta go), it has the right amount of messiness to it and the detailing is great!  &apls

It's a shame that I haven't responded to this update yet.  Those farm fields are nice.  The way that they follow the non-grid conforming streets is certainly a dose of variety.  I like that power line crossing the farmland a lot; it looks much like a setup I've seen in my area.

The lumber yard with the wood being loaded onto the trailer is marvelously molded into the rural scene.  It adds a measure of life to the picture, with the sense that something is being accomplished in the day-by-day rural grind.

Great!
