Hey, welcome to SC4D indeed. :)

I saw your CJ over at Simtropolis, awesome.

Nice to see you here too.

Just a heads up: try not to answer each comment one by one, since the MD progression here is based on reply count. :)

- UPDATE 4: Myrtos Beach -





Located on the island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea, few beaches across the globe can compare to Greece's breathtaking Myrtos Beach. Due to it's remote and rugged location, the beach is completely inaccessible by foot - the only way to reach it is to traverse your way down a series of steep hairpin curves. Once you make it there however, you'll be rewarded greatly with pristine, warm Mediterranean waters, perfectly soft white sand, and of course, incredible views.

Our journey gets started off with us making accommodations at a timeless Greek villa - our room overlooks the edge of the beach, giving us a fantastic view of the sunset. We'll be staying here tonight, and tomorrow we're off to the beach. 





We set off for the beach early in the morning, driving through endless fields of daisies and poppies along our way. However, just as we roll down our windows to take in the smell, the clouds darken and it starts pouring. It looks like our day at the beach could very well be in jeopardy.





Fortunately for us however, it was nothing more than a quick rain shower. The sky eventually begins to clear up and the beach starts to come alive.





We stake out a prime spot on the beachfront and soak up the sun - no better way to spend an afternoon!





Myrtos Beach is more than just a beach - it's an experience. Activities such as hang gliding are extremely popular throughout the area, so we throw caution to the wind and decide to give it a shot.





We make our way back to the beach just as the day begins to wind down. Once nightfall approaches, we get a little peace and quiet once the beach starts emptying out - being sure to take it all in one last time. A perfect end to our day.





I hope you enjoyed your visit to Myrtos Beach! :)

After seeing the best MMP work ever people should not just support this MD, they should be worshipping it.

Bloody hell... That is too darn good.

Well, I think this is the way you win in Simcity 4. Guys, you can begin to pack, it's time to go back home, there's no way to surpass this.

No, seriously, this is the most absurdly realist thing I've seen done in this game. The mere fact it was done basically overimposing 2D images makes this almost incomprehensible.

Whatever, you'll need some replacement finger joints to keep to this pace of quality and speed, I almost can feel the pain of so much clicks and the frustration of so many involuntary errors.

I can't believe what I'm seeing. This is some of the most masterful MMP work the community has ever seen - equal to Badsim's Antigone or Yan077's Corsica. I'd love to see a post where you talk about your process. Thank you for sharing your work, I'm looking forward to more.  :popcorn:

Eh. You ever been to a So Cal beach?

But, these pics are indeed epic. I, well... I'm mostly at a loss for words. The image is so seamless, fluid, and most dramatically, it's an entire landscape, not just a small segment used for picture taking. The entire city/scene is actually there!

I don't know what wizardry you're using, but I want some of it, and I know I probably can't handle it.

I'm gonna give korver a run for his money... I'll be spending the next two to three weeks creating a deciduous/coniferous American MMP wonderland. It won't surpass what korver has done; match it though? Maybe...

A little competition is always good.

I have to agree with bladeberkman, it reminds me a lot of Yann's Corsica and that's a good thing!
Really incredible level of details in these pictures. The only note I have to say is that I find the boat a bit too close to the beach for safety. However I've only been to the beach twice so I wouldn't know how it works IRL.
