Nice start. This has real potential. I like your sense for terrain shape a lot. I have a really hard time getting terrain to look extreme and natural at the same time.

A few pointers if I may.
In Scene 10, the left side of the bridge is too far inland. Not only are bridges hugely expensive, but permitting them to have natural slopes underneath them promotes them to get washed out during flooding. It might be a good idea to just plop a few road tiles to create an embankment closer to the shore. Not only will it be more realistic (what ever that is), but will probably make them a bit more aesthetic just by making them more uniform on each bank. Those stone are bridges look great when they have the last arch on each side flush into an embankment.

Hit cntrl + x, and type TastyZots into the dialogue window to get rid of the zots that hover over the buildings.

Bridges carry electricity, and then just about any thing you plop will also carry electricity. You can get rid of those fugly Maxis power lines by plopping stuff 4 tiles apart. There is a Pegasus mod that plops manholes for access to "underground" wires. I use street lights along roads or highways most of the time. There is another plop floating around whose name I forget that you can easily hid with trees which is nice for going over tunnels, or just use one of the tree park plops and then mmp trees around the park.

Use seasonal trees on Sept 1, or you get trees in different seasons.

I really like the aesthetics in scene 25. It has a nice flavor to the road winding in and going nowhere.
Keep it up

I'm guessing that mountain contains the coal or whatever mineral happens to operate the power plant, although the description stops short of saying just what kind of mineral it is.  Interesting.  :)  Kemah Peninsula's new developments will have some nice views of the water it seems.  Nice update.  :thumbsup:
Find my power line BAT thread here.
Check out the Noro Cooperative.  What are you waiting for?  It even has electricity.

Great update as always, Scene 1 was a bit upsetting finding Australia and New Zealand didn't exist anymore I got a bit worried till I pinched myself and thought    &dance   I'm still here.

well my computer struggled a bit going thru the powerpoint presentation it was worth the effort I especially liked your taking the time to remember Darmok and Anduin River Valley, your cover shots are as always fantastic  &apls  and there really aren't words, so a karma point is heading your way.
