PaPa-J: Thank you very much! I actually have around 10 different Plugins folders that I use for this MD, it's the only real way I can possibly stay organized while constantly changing building styles. It's not quite 30GB - but they're still pretty big regardless :D

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!   :thumbsup:

- UPDATE 88: Asian Skylines -





Today, we're returning to Asia to see a few more of the continent's most impressive skylines. After already taking a look at Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai in previous updates, today we'll be visiting Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore.

We'll begin our tour in Seoul - the capital of South Korea. This city of nearly 10 million offers a stunning contrast of new and old architecture - and it's no more apparent than in the city center where the ancient Namdaemun temple sits right next door to modern high rise offices and apartments.





Seoul's distinctive 63 Building is one of the city's most recognizable sights and is covered with an exterior of glimmering gold glass.





Taipei's impressive Taipei 101 was completed in 2004 and was the world's tallest building for a number of years.





We move into Southeast Asia for our last three sights, starting with Thailand's capital, Bangkok. Rising high above the chaotic, bustling streets below is the stunning Baiyoke Sky Hotel - this 1,014 foot tall skyscraper is one of the world's tallest hotels and offers great views of the city.





Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, is our next destination - and its skyline is dominated by the impressive Petronas Towers. Standing 1,483 feet tall, they were briefly the world's tallest buildings until being surpassed by Taipei 101.





The tour concludes with a look at Singapore's CBD. This small island nation may only be 278 square miles big - but is well known for having one of the continent's best skylines with plenty of modern highrises along its waterfront.

Well I expected to see the Lotte World Tower from Seoul. Pretty great update. The parks on the shoreline of Seoul are neat.

Funny how Paris didn't change much in 200 years. Really like that Berlin picture, reminds me of Peterycristi's historic Berlin MD. :) (Sadly all pictures are long gone.)

Here's two challenges/ideas for you:

Try to make a Singapore special featuring the F1 grand prix and a Paris special featuring the building of the Metropolitain with cut and cover works, submersed caisson in the Seine and beautiful viaduct.

Simply great to see these old scenes! The Place de la Concorde in Paris is my favorite, even if they are all beautiful. It's just beautiful to see Paris at this time with booming motoring! A fabulous job, thank you korver! &apls

PaPa-J: Thanks for the comment! I usually get the same feeling when I'm working on some of these updates $%Grinno$%

Alan_Waters: Let's just say I'm an extremely efficient person :P Glad you liked it!

art128: Thank you - his work was actually some of the inspiration behind that scene, I remember being amazed by that great Brandenburg Gate scene years ago. Unfortunately none of the pics seem to be working anymore :( Thanks for the ideas too - I have about a million projects I need to finish up though lol so we'll see.. :P

Akallan: Thanks for the nice words! The early 1900s and late 1800s were such a fascinating time in Paris - glad you enjoyed my little showcase of that era. Maybe I'll have to revisit it sometime later on ;)

Wish the tram pics used my system ;) I should know better to ask but are the lighthouse from Amsterdam or the tower on top of Gare D'Orsay in the last pic available anywhere?

Noah: the dome on top of the Gare d'Orsay building is the Dome des Invalide by Frogface.

The other building is Amsterdam's montelbaanstoren by TatooedMillionaire.

noahclem: Thank you very much for the nice words! I actually tried to use some of your textures in that Brandenburg Gate scene - but I couldn't find any overlays that would line up properly with the other textures I was using so I had to make do with another set.

art128: Thanks for posting the links :thumbsup:

I have the impression to see real beautiful old postcards.  :o
As always, no detail is missing and everything is done with great taste including photoshoping with these slight cracks as old photos worn by the years.
A feast for the eyes !  &apls &apls &apls
