You had me hoping for a moment... but this is good fun, too. I still think you should reconsider, though. ;D

Well that doesn't mean I can't have any fun posting these updates. If that were the case then why would I?

For example, here's a mashup of that RHW/Maxis highway Interchange shown in the update:

Junction built with RHW 1.2-1.3B:


Later modified slightly with RHW 2.1-3.0:

And retrofitted/expanded with the aid of RHW 5.0 and NWM 2.0:

And a bonus while I'm at it: the downtown core before development. Groundwork laid in late 2006/early 2007

Bump, hope that's okay. /wrrd%&

That was nice, re-developing an old interchange. I hope there will be more of these kinds of things in the future. I really like them, maybe you could start a whole other MD to take it's place. Still, until then, i'll just have to wait. ;)

Well as I said on the last page I do have the original updates archived. I posted the first one and thought about doing the others if it was popular as it takes a lot of work to get them up.

My MD career is retired, so don't expect anything new from me until SC2013 comes out.

That planning shot is amazing - I am intrigued by the 3-way rail connection flyover thingy (it probably has a real name).

I know your diary days are over, but it you are ever in the mood, I'd love to see that area filled in.

That area built up in late 2007. (So still very outdated compared to my current urban design standards ;))

Wow, that's sorta messy. $%Grinno$% At least this is better than nothing, glad to see that it isn't completely dead or inactive. &dd

Can't wait to see what happens to SC2013 when it comes out! >:D ()meeting()

how do you change sidewalks texture?

There are a few mods that let you change road and sidewalk textures. I use the Sandstone mod now.

Download here: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/17323-smp-sidewalk-reaplcement-mod/

Thanks for the compliments! :D

With the new NAM coming out I thought I would be nostalgic and show one my original updates from 2007, fully restored. This restoration is part of my SimCity 4 Archives project.

Date: December 20, 2007.

All text found below this line is from the original update itself.



High rise Jungle:


A new complicated avenue roundabout.  This new junction is open, and helps minimize the criss-cross of traffic you would find in a standard intersection/roundabout.


Some vacant space for sale near a stack interchange:


A new compact parclo interchange opens on the edge of the developed area designed to handle larger volumes than that of the former diamond interchange.


A RHW/GLR intersection.  Demand on one side of the RHW is high (skyscrapers), but on the other, oddly enough, its lower (drive-ins)


A municipal interchange built to handle increasing congestion from neighbour connections.


The highway divides itself into thru and exiting lanes


GLR, rail, and bullet train lines all meet together at this large and complex junction.


Roads are aligned together to prepare for a future expansion of the city.


A close-up of the new alignment.


A RHW bypassing the area through a forest.


GLR is a new component used in the expansion projects.


Some more info about the city, displaying the aging population.  An issue that may become a problem in the coming years...
-Also shown here are other measurements: The map, funds, population (ignore the population/funds, this photo was taken a while ago), and demand bars.
-In the background, several office buildings and connections are shown.


Lastly, a funny pic from an overhanging prop.  I call it the "Sky-port" LOL



Anyways, thats it for this update.  Let me know how I did and what you think!





I also found this pic in the update's cache but there's no text for it... Might have been part of another page or just a lost pic. Either way I'll post it here while I have my mind on it:



And that was the GTR's second official update!

This is great, your archives and this GTR thread really shows how far SimCity4 has come recently, and how much your cities have changed with the availability of new mods, such as updates to the RHW.

Holy crap!

This is awesome!

Thanks for inducting my MD into the hall of fame!!!

This calls for a celebration  &dance

Real life is pretty hectic right now (it is December) but in the coming days I'll do a complete revisit of the region.

I've incorporated the Greater Terran Region (GTR) into my 'Ring of Fire" mega-region but it is still mostly intact. Check it out in the views below.

A huge congratulations on joining the HoF my friend  &apls &apls &apls  Your innovative and intensive use of the game's transit networks has made you perhaps the NAM's foremost ambassador and thus also an outsized force in keeping the game alive and exciting, including reaching audiences on social media and otherwise beyond the reach of the major SC4 forums. An MD as famous as GTR could have no more appropriate home than SC4D's MD HoF  :thumbsup:  Looking forward to what's next  :popcorn:

I totally second that. It was in fact the "Building A City From Scratch" youtube series which finally convinced me to embrase the NAM :)

Without that, I might not have ended up here...
