Truly spectacular! I love the insight into your techniques-I might give it a go when I have some spare time! I really love the true variety of all of your scenes. Urban, rural and natural, all of which are executed to the highest of standards!

These are all wonderful, obviously, but I'm particularly fascinated and impressed by the Cameroon one, and the accompanying insight into your process. The way you've taken that Google Earth shot and recreated it in a grid-based game is just... damn. There aren't enough superlatives, really. Incredible.

Your truly are an artist when it comes to this game. I don't believe I have ever seen such true to life pics before. The level of detail in every pic is just mesmerising.

- UPDATE 10: Sydney -





Our trip to Sydney begins with one of the world's most recognizable buildings - the Sydney Opera House. Built in 1973 - its unique white seashell shape truly sets this skyline apart from the rest. Sitting just behind it is the Royal Botanic Gardens - opened in 1816, there's no better place to take a stroll on a sunny day.





Just as recognizable is the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge - built in 1932, it's one of the best ways to cross the harbour. At night, its distinctive lights dominate the surrounding waters.





Water taxis are a great way to get around the harbour, and the Circular Quay (whose name contradicts its squarish shape) near the CBD is one of the most popular destinations in the entire city.





Sydney is a city known for it's suburbs. In fact, it's got 555 of them - but few are as beautiful as Lavender Bay. It's easily reached by water taxi, has great views of the Harbour Bridge and the skyline in the distance - not to mention being ranked consistently as one of Sydney's most livable suburbs. It's a great place to call home.





A rainy day in the CBD. Some of Sydney's most recognizable buildings can be found near Hyde Park - such as the MLC Centre, which held the title as the city's tallest building for 15 years. Nearby is the Sydney Tower - completed in 1981, you can enjoy some exotic cuisine from its 360 degree rotating restaurant.





Another scene from the CBD - some of Sydney's tallest buildings - Deutsche Bank Place, Chifley Tower, Aurora Place, and Governor Philip Tower tower over the Royal Botanic Gardens.





However, it's at night that these buildings truly come to life.





And finally, some overviews of the city.









Special thanks goes out to all the various creators at 3D Warehouse, as many buildings here were imported from there (too many to list). If you're interested, just search "Sydney" there and you'll find many of the same models I used - you'll need to have basic gmax/3dsmax knowledge to get the model into the game however, but it isn't very difficult. The highway system is modular, for an insight of how I created it and the process behind it, please take a look at the comments section of my "City Overview" and "Night Scenes" ST challenge entries.

Having been to Sydney in March that is a very very excellent and getting to hit the Like button only once does not do it justice.

Although the accuracy of any of these images is lost on me (I have zero idea of what Sydney looks like from the ground, much less the air), man are they stunning.

Those water reflections are just insane. :shocked2: The detail with the buildings casting shadows on the ground objects is great too (I am aware you do this for most of your pics). But of course it's the extra touches here that really give it that extra sense of realism and make up for the fact that SC4 lacks a vanishing point camera (which I have to say the water ripples and reflections really do a lot to mitigate).
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Another amazing update! You have definitely captured the distinctive Sydney feel  :thumbsup:

Being super-super-super picky though.. the reflections of the opera house in the water is a bit of a strange angle. All the reflections at night are delightful though ;D

I feel like I want to see a Tsunehisa Kimura styled post-apocalyptic version now  :D

Dropped ma jaw.

You have your very own style and I struggle to find a name for it. While it's not photorealistic, mind if I call it post-realistic? :)

wowowowowowowowowowow  &apls  &apls  &apls

as an Australian (albeit an ex-pat), I have been to Sydney plenty of times, and the way you've recreated it is just astonishing. are you gonna do the famous ocean swimming pool at Bronte Beach? (for non-Australians, this is a swimming pool carved into the rocks at one of Sydney's prettiest beaches - the ocean refills it constantly, and it's a pretty amazing place to do laps!)
