The work you do is spectacular Korver.  Tell me how the great wall was done.  Is it a lot or mmp or what?  It really is incredible.
Lighten up, just enjoy life,
smile more, laugh more,
and don't get so worked up
about things.

- UPDATE 106: Middle East -





Today, we're taking a trip to the Middle East and visiting some of the region's most incredible sights - from stunning skylines, quaint villages, dramatic landscapes, and much more - there's plenty here to keep you in awe.

We'll begin the trip with a visit to one of the world's most iconic landmarks - the Pyramids of Giza. These legendary pyramids have stood tall for over 4,000 years and are the last remaining wonder of the Ancient World.





We travel into Israel for our next destination - the amazing cliffside monastery of Mar Saba. Built in the 5th century, this walled complex is the Judean Desert's largest monastery and is one of the region's most distinctive sights.





Another one of the region's most iconic sights are the ruins of Petra, Jordan. This rose colored city was built as early as the 5th century and flourished for centuries until it was mysteriously abandoned.





While much of the Middle East is barren desert and mountains - there's still plenty of fertile, cultivable landscape if you know where to look. Oman's Ghubrah Bowl is flanked by terraced farmland and small rural villages - making for a beautiful sight.





With the entire region being rich in oil reserves - refineries are a common sight in many parts of the Middle East.





The final destination in our trip is one of the world's most impressive cities - Dubai. The windsail-shaped Burj Al Arab stands 648 feet high over the coastline and is one of the city's most unique landmarks.





Few skylines on the face of the planet can compare to Dubai's - and the world's tallest building, the 2,717 foot tall Burj Dubai is truly a sight to behold.

art128: Appreciate the nice words, thanks for commenting! I might do some more city updates later on so stay tuned ;)

mattb325: Thank you very much, glad you liked the update! The terraces along with a number of the other pics required some custom MMPs to get just right.

PaPa-J: Thanks for the kind words! The Great Wall is a series of custom models I made and placed them on overhanging 1x1 lots to use in the game.

Themistokles: Thanks for the comment - appreciate the nice words :)

COMPLETELY STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   You really out-did yourself.  Love the creative re-creations of famous sites around our mother earth.  I must note that the Manhattan Skyline is changing every day and new "Skinny" scrapers are popping up every where in NYC.

Outrageously astounding , that’s the only words  coming in mind at first .

Then , thinking ; if we didn’t have some SC4 well known items , sometimes just here and there , we could think you have created a SC4-ification program to handle any real picture in a split second , a kind of filter . Whatever your technics , your explanations and the time you have to devote to this , your work and the amount of work become less and less understandable … and that’s precisely the point I enjoy the most ; while living in a world running after absolute transparency , mystery is the last interest , poesy and piquancy of  life . ( for me , at least but … I’m getting old and have tendancy to talk nonsense . $%Grinno$% )

+1 , of course … and welcome to your MD to its new nest . Better late than never . :P

How To express my reaction to this update with words  &Thk/(:
Wow .......... How is that possible? .............. Wow again, and 100 times WOW:o
I don't know if you realize that in 1 update you did more than any player will dream to do in one life on this game. We touch here the surreal!  &apls &apls &apls
The illusion of seeing real photos is such that we sometimes have to look several times to realize that they are well drawn from the game, as far-off views as closer views especially reproductions of South-American mid-sized cities are breathtaking realism.
More than usual, everything is there: the perfect reproduction/choice of building, the details placed in the right place to the millimeter (MMPs, texturing) and the absolute control of the light. I love this weekly show that you offer us: every time we believe that you will not be able to surpass yourself, and each time you prove the opposite with mastery.
2018 was epic, 2019 will probably be even more ! Thanks you Master !  :thumbsup:
