I love these scenes, I want to go to Berlin now and visit these landmark in live! :) It was already on my to-do list anyway, but now it came up a little bit on that list.

Thanks for showing these nice pictures!

Yes, that's truly an amazing update! I've never been to Berlin, altough I would really like to visit it one day :) The pictures are excellent, especially thanks to a lot of available bats from this city ;) I like how you try to mix the old and modern and socialist architecture (especially near Alexanderplatz).  :thumbsup:
Thank you for visiting Kolbrów, and for being for last ten years!

As I told you I've been there, Berlin is also my favourite city in Europe... maybe is not the most beautiful city but it has something that I like a lot...

I like the pictures as always and I enjoy watching all those places again, thanks for share  &apls &apls

- UPDATE 57: Hong Kong -




Today we're taking a look at Hong Kong - this global financial hub and port city boasts one of the world's most stunning and recognizable skylines. This city was originally under British rule for 99 years - but in 1997 it returned to China and now is a special administrative region (SAR).

We're starting off in Kowloon - located on the mainland across Victoria Harbor, it's well known for its markets and endless apartments. The streets are constantly crowded, it's an area that's always filled with energy and activity.





Hankow Road is one of Kowloon's most famous roads - with countless signs and advertisements crowding the streets, its one of the city's most distinctive sights.











Tian Tan Buddha is one of Hong Kong's most famous attractions and offers incredible views of the city. Since it's opening in 1993, it has become well known in the city as a symbol of Buddhism and nature.





At night, the skyline of Hong Kong is even more amazing. Here we take a look at the Bank of China Tower - one of Hong Kong's most distinctive and remarkable buildings. Standing 1,205 feet tall, it was Hong Kong and Asia's tallest building for two years after its completion in 1990.





The 1,227 foot tall Central Plaza is another one of the city's most beautiful skyscrapers, it originally opened in 1992 and overtook the Bank of China Tower as the city's tallest until 2003.





In 2003, Two International Finance Center was completed and overtook Central Plaza as the city's tallest at the time, standing 1,352 feet tall. Another one of Hong Kong's most famous skyscrapers can be seen close by as well - The Center was completed in 1998 and is currently the city's 5th tallest with a height of 1,135 feet tall.





Hong Kong's tallest building is the International Commerce Centre - rising 1,538 feet tall, this incredible building took nearly 8 years to build and was finally completed in 2010. It's currently the world's 10th tallest building, and the views from the top are truly extraordinary.

Great bat selection as always and the use of animation really brings things to life (ok, that sounds a little silly/redundant but you know what I mean). Clever use of those airport bats as part of the tower base--though I don't understand how the roof line at the middle end of that was accomplished. I've used that set for other stuff as well, but mainly just a convention center roof as the lack of night lights reduces their usefulness in many situations. That dirty, HD tenament (PvM?) is a favorite bat of mine but one that's difficult to find a niche for--of course you've found that perfectly here :D  Ditto the ICC and all the other really tall towers, for that matter.

Are you going to do Chep Lap Kok as well?
I still remember approaching the airport through lot's of low hanging clouds and suddenly seeing a fishingboat next to the plane when we came out of the clouds and hit the runway  :)

Wow! It's amazing! The level of detail, the buildings used, everything is really well done. The atmosphere of the city gives really good with the images of night, we see that everything is very alive everywhere, it's great!

But the detail that makes all the difference is the yellow pedestrian crossings (a thought for Kelis)! :P

Seriously, excellent! :squirrel:

Absolutely stunning update again! (i feel like i'm repeating myself, but i cannot express differently how i feel when i see each of your updates)
I have always loved Hong Kong in general so when i see it recreated in Simcity, I feel happy!
Quite frankly you nailed it with the elevated walkways using Glenni's props.

Though Hong Kong is LHD....  ;D

I had problems so that it works correctly in the new versions of NAM but in the first recreation that I made around 2008 I used the yellow  pedestrian crossings ;D

Well as I said, I like so much Kowloon, you have really captured that feeling that Kowloon has. Congratulations once again  &apls &apls

- UPDATE 58: Los Angeles -




Today we're going to be taking a look at the United States' second largest city - Los Angeles - the "City of Angels". Its a city filled with iconic skyscrapers and landmarks - such as the beautiful Bullocks Wilshire building. Completed in 1929, it's one of the city's finest examples of Art Deco style, and was one of its most prominent department stores. In 1978, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.





Hollywood Hills is one of LA's most beautiful areas - its winding, hilly streets are surrounded by stunning mansions, home to many of the city's wealthiest people.





Running through the heart of the city, the Los Angeles River was filled with concrete in the 1930s and is one of the city's most unique sights.





The LA area is home to some of the country's most beautiful beaches. Venice Beach is one of the city's most popular destinations, and can get quite crowded during the summer months.





The Staples Center is one of Los Angeles' premier entertainment venues. Completed in 1999, its home to a number of professional sports franchises, such as the NBA's Lakers and Clippers, the WNBA's Sparks, and the NHL's Kings.





The famous Griffith Observatory was completed in 1935 - this building offers incredible views of downtown LA and the nearby Hollywood Sign, and is also home to an wide array of science and space displays for locals and tourists alike to enjoy.





The Hollywood Sign is one of the world's most famous signs, and can be seen for miles around. It's been one of LA's most iconic attractions and popular tourist destinations since its completion in 1923 (when it originally spelt out "Hollywoodland").





The Capitol Records Building was completed in 1956 and is another one of the city's most iconic buildings. Resembling a stack of records, this building has remained one of the country's most famous recording studios ever since.





Our last stop is LA's Financial District - its filled with stunning skyscrapers like the U.S. Bank Tower and Gas Company Tower.





From 1989 to 2017, the 1,018 foot tall U.S. Bank Tower (formerly known as the Library Tower) was the tallest skyscraper in Los Angeles (since surpassed by the 1,100 foot tall Wilshire Grand Center).





LA at night is truly extraordinary.

noahclem: Thank you very much! Those airport pieces are my secret weapon, they seem to look good wherever I put them :P I reduced the occupancy size to 1x1x1 in reader though and put them on 1x1 lots so they overhang alot, which gives alot more flexibility - I think that answers your question if I'm understanding it correctly.
