Title: NORDAVIND
Post by: Danthe on March 19, 2010, 07:31:38 AM
Hello,

time to reactivate Nordavind ::) I neglected previous MD with lack of time and the lack of suitable LOT's as well.

What new:
 - modified map, using as base map Tenochtitlan from Heblem's link (http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/details.cfm?id=17449)
 - prepared over 30 LOT's of farms in East - European style,
 - prepared the set of field roads, accessible on SCPolska link (http://simcitypolska.pl/download.php?view.356).

I decided also to shorten to Nordavind name only, Land to name of the largest plain only. I will introduce history with time, I finished in large part, and list of main dependancies and mods all used to this region.

On beginning traditionally the picture of whole region. First of all I made more gentle mountains, though I tried to use economically the tool of polishing, it stayed so sporo picturesque rocks. I differentiated also a bit flat terrains; in original it former on the same level, but this looked not very naturally. I worked in addition from plop water all rivers also, thanks what to be visible it in view of region also.

And additionally the physical map of region also :)

UPDATE 1.1

And premiere a new Nordavind. Ten pictures of small village called Radnor, rather her the western part. I tried to give back climate and typical characteristic of buildings form from east-european region. All buildings and large part of fields is growing, only diagonal fragments are ploped.

Wow, amazing work here my friend. You certainly have put together an amazing variety of custom content and the result is just beautiful. I must ask where the duplex in the seventh picture came from. I have been looking for these buildings for quite a while now.  :)

Your map is stunning as is the terrain.

I am hooked after seeing Llangefni and Carmarthen.

Very much looking forward to seeing how this pans out.

Giel (Gilikov1994): Your polish is not bad :D Hartelijk dank :)
TiFlo: Thank You. I really depends me on the realism and atmosphere of a typical east-european village, I'm glad that some have succeeded ()stsfd()
TheBluejay: Thanks.
io_bg: I'm glad. My next update it will be in the same style, a small village lost in the woods ;)
nbvc: Thanks.
metasmurf: Thanks.
kimcar: I don't have much time for SC4, but I will try at least once a month to prepare a new update. Thanks.
KACP3R: Thanks Kacper. You know that it is always great importance attaches to the details. Thanks again :)
djvandrake: Thank You. It's important for me that you see this all the details and nuances.
Arthur (art128): Thanks my Friend. I always come to resent the fields in square edges, so I prepared myself and several of LOT's of these fields are ploped.
kwakelaar: Buildings mostly prepared my Polish friends, I gave only them the functions of farms and fields earned. Thank You.
Will (penguin007): Thanks. With these paths I had a lot of work, everything is made of many individual's LOT's, unfortunately not drag ::)
Ethan (ecoba): To build this region for a long time preparing, I made a special LOT's and paths, I am pleased that the results are good. And answer to your question: the building dates from the Fordoniak's pack (aka Adrian10), can be found at STEX (http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/details.cfm?id=18857). In addition, the duplex building what you see, in-pack is still a one :)
wallasey: Thank You. A small, really small fragment near Llangefni have already finished, but it will still take some time. Patience... :P
planetechef:Thank you for your appreciation. I wanted to show a small fields of heather, I really like these charming places.
nedalezz: such is my concept for this region - mostly small villages surrounded by dense forests. Thanks.
Battlecat: Thanks.
mightygoose: This is not a mod. I used a little trick: a puzzle with the path is transit enabled for a road - so they build on the agricultural zones. Unfortunately, works only for those zones and a limited size, but so larger (longer) fields must be ploped :) I will try to make a little tutorial to show how it works.
Rady: Thank You.


UPDATE 1.1a :)

Only one picture, unfortunately ;) The larger update (more far part of this village) in next week.

Great little teaser there, Mariusz !
I love the mix of the trees, it really looks like in real life. Both streets (and paths) and phone poles are well used, and I love the details you put in this pic, like this bus station with is very realistic with the two lanes.

Take care,
-Arthur.  :thumbsup:

Impressive. Some years ago I travelled some times from Warsaw to Torun. Your village could have been there ...

I really like use of the dirt roads and the transitions between dirt and asphalt is well done indeed.
