- UPDATE 96: Industrial Scenes - Part II -





The industrial scenes conclude today with a wide variety of pictures from across the globe - and we'll begin the tour in Aral'sk, Kazakhstan. Due to the Aral Sea drying up, the seaport and nearby factories have been abandoned for decades - although with talks of a new dam, things could change around in the near future.





A few views from Rotterdam, The Netherlands - home to one of the world's largest seaports.








A smoggy, hot day at the Port of Toronto.





Solar farms in the Western U.S.





Wind farms in rural California.





A rainy day in Maracaibo, Venezuela - home to some of the world's largest oil pump jack fields.





A look at the Swan Mill Power Plant (Svanemølleværket), located in an industrial area in Copenhagen, Denmark.





A smoggy day in Johannesburg, South Africa - where the famous Nelson Mandela Bridge crosses a heavily industrial area filled with factories and railyards.





A scene a 1940's Chicago - where meat packing warehouses line the Chicago River.





A few more scenes from Norilsk, Russia - where pollution from the nearby nickel smelting factories have turned it into one of the world's most polluted cities.








Heavy industry on Zug Island, located in Detroit, Michigan.





A look at the areas surrounding the Los Angeles River - filled with warehouses for as far as the eye can see.

Simmer2: Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed the update :thumbsup:

dyoungyn: Thanks for the comment! I've actually done a little research on the Bingham Kinney Kit Cooper mine before when I was studying scenes for the Western U.S. update and I might give it a go in the future. There's still some more scenes from the Western U.S. I want to do (and maybe another Industrial update) down the road, so we'll see ;)

Tyberius06: Thank you very much for the kind words!

- UPDATE 97: Sights From Sydney - Part I -





Over the last couple of weeks, I've been quietly putting the finishing touches on my Sydney Harbour recreation - and now with the tile just about complete, it's time for another look at the Harbour City. I'll be splitting the tour into two parts - and for the first part today we'll be taking a look at some scenes from the CBD, Royal Botanic Garden, and more. No trip to Sydney is complete however without a visit to the world famous Sydney Opera House - so that's where we'll begin our journey. Enjoy!





A few overviews of the CBD:











A few of the city's most distinctive skyscrapers - Australia Square, Deutsche Bank Place, & 1 O'Connell Street.











A closeup view of Sydney's impressive MLC Centre. Standing 748 feet tall, it was the tallest building in the city from 1977-1992.









A number of assorted scenes from in and around Sydney's world famous CBD.























Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden is one of the world's most impressive urban parks and has been a popular destination in the city since opening back in 1816.














Sydney truly comes alive at nighttime.





























Finally, a couple overviews of Sydney and it's famous harbour.

Wow,

Even better then the first time.  I have been to Sydney four separate times while in the U.S. Navy and always moored at the Ausy Navy Port on the other side of the park.  Your details are spot on, GREAT job.

I think we can easily say that your industrial scenes are by far the most perfectly reproduced in Sim City! No competitor, really.  ;)
As for Sydney, I am fascinated as much by your attention to detail in parks, including this very fine work with MMPs to reproduce the landscaping of vegetation, the slight deterioration of turf on the edge of the aphalt or the behavior of walkers on the paths and lawns, and by your aerial views which are incredibly realistic!  :o
Someone who is not used to your perfect mastery of the game, might think that it is a photo or an artistic drawing as the constraints of the game seem to evaporate when you create.
I do not get tired of your magic! Thank you for the show. :thumbsup:

- UPDATE 98: Sights From Sydney - Part II -





Our trip to Sydney concludes today with a wide variety of scenes from the CBD, Royal Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay, Lavender Bay, and much more. We'll begin with a few more views of Sydney's impressive downtown - enjoy!








A rainy day at the iconic Sydney Tower - the Southern Hemisphere's second tallest observation tower.





A number of scenes from around Sydney's iconic harbour and Circular Quay:


























Lavender Bay can be found north of the city's CBD and is one its wealthiest and most livable suburbs.














Sydney's beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens are truly an urban oasis - and make for a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.











A couple more scenes from the CBD and around the city's Botanic Gardens:

















A few mosaics of Sydney's impressive skyline and harbour - with a look at the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge as well.











And finally, a few more overviews and panoramas of Sydney in all its glory:

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!  Brings back memories of the time when I was in the U.S. Navy making a port visit and marching in a parade downtown for military week.  Truly a memorable moment.  I can just see where the route could have been in your detail job of glorious Sydney.  Would love to see some of the Navy Pier and the luxurious "Pots Point" and up the hill down "Macley St". Along this street is some very nice little hotels here and there and with the tree lined route really reminds me the U.S. only in Australia.

- UPDATE 99: Midwest U.S. (Preview) -


For our next update, we're returning to the United States to take a look at a number of scenes from the Midwest. From picturesque farmland, heavy industrial areas, famous landmarks, iconic skylines, and more - there's plenty to see and experience here, so we'll be taking an in depth look at the region. The update will include a scene from each and every Midwestern state - there's still a few more scenes I need to finish up though, so in the meantime here's a preview of what's to come:


Quaint family farms - a common sight just about everywhere you look in the Midwestern U.S.





Much of the Midwest U.S. is an endless plain of farms and fields - and from the air you can truly grasp the scale.





We'll see a few of the region's most impressive landmarks as well, like iconic Mount Rushmore.





We'll be taking a look at a number of Midwestern industrial areas as well - like the heavy industrial regions that surround Lake Michigan and more.





There will be plenty of cities included as well - with scenes from Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, and Minneapolis - and even some scenes from the tiny Midwestern capital city of Pierre, South Dakota.

Great job.  Keep going West to the Mountain States of Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah.  Utah does indeed have the greatest National Parks that are absolutely beautiful that man is slowly ruining by vandalism.  Denver is truly the largest city in the mountain states.

Hi korver!

Geeez, Man, your Sydney recreation is amazing, specially the harbour part. So many unfamiliar buildings. Those piers on picture 4, 7 and 9 (same as 4 just day time), what are those? I mean for example I know that boat piers are NBVC marina, but what are main buildings? And yepp, last image is just simply breath taking...  &apls &apls &apls

Midwest U.S.
Harbour scene is really nice here as well, and the Zoom out on the last picture too!  &apls Awesome work!

- True Earth: The 100th Update -

After two and a half years - True Earth has finally reached its 100th update. :bnn:

To celebrate the occasion, we're taking a look back at some of my finest pictures in one massive mosaic. From sprawling cities, stunning natural wonders, charming villages, iconic landmarks, and so much more - we've traveled to so many incredible places from across the globe these last couple of years, and there's still so much more to come.

Thanks once again to everyone for your support and encouragement over the years :thumbsup:




Note: due to compression issues I had to upload this mosaic to Dropbox - if you can't see the link then I also uploaded the more compressed version to imgur as well here.

Tyberius06: Thank you very much for the comment! The piers were mainly constructed with pieces from the Stanley Seawalls set on the STEX, some of NBVC's various pieces, and some airport teminal pieces from one of the ACE packs on Simtropolis.
