Title: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: Giligone on January 25, 2007, 09:45:13 PM
I'm a huge fan of a good region shot. I love to see the big picture and how the cities relate. I'm always striving to build my cities such that they mesh well in the region shot. I guess you could almost say I play sc4 to make region shots! Haha, thats not exactly true but not far off, anywho. So, I figured SC4D should have a thread where we can show off our region shots. I'll start. This is a current shot of my region Nemonos. Pop = 420 000

Its... so... pretty!  :thumbsup:

I was wondering, just as a noob, how you plan a large region like that? Do sketch it out at all or just wing it? I am having trouble with the winging it but I feel that my SC4 skills are not so developed that I could sketch a good idea right now. Thanks for sharing and I will certainly look forward to more region shots. Maybe with some help I will post one too!

Hey, thanks. What I did for this one was design the map, then i drew up a highway network that I would use as the backbone for my region. Then i loaded the map into sc4 and started building it out. I've pretty much designed the whole region in my head though. I hope that helps.

@ nik nik, thanks ;D

Dusk glad to see you still playing the game i love your region building style, a great undersanding of just how much sprawl a real US city has, and if i am not tripping (and i may be) i think i see some farms in that last pic.
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: Giligone on January 30, 2007, 02:21:11 PM
Excellent regions DT!! :thumbsup: I stumbled upon that first region of yours back on ST last summer. I was blown away. The sheer size of that city still blows me away. How long did it take to build?
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: Alek King of SC4 on January 30, 2007, 02:25:43 PM
well i can't speak for DT but i am sure however long it took, it would have been a lot less if the DAT packer was around back then  :D
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: DuskTrooper on January 30, 2007, 04:12:48 PM
Thanks for the kind comments, everyone!  I hope others are inspired by my work. :thumbsup:

Alek:  Yes, those are farms.  I wanted to "complete" the "full metro look" for this new region.  The older two regions DO indeed attempt to sprawl out a lot; however, the new one is much more dense, and most of the mass so far is W2W, with sprawl/single family and light industry only on the fringes, like most modernized european cities.

Gilgone: I played Montaukshire on and off from the span of March 2005, to about June 2006. 
Oxford Province spans from July 2006-December 2006, and as stated, my new region of Vidorshire began on New Year's day (A new region for a new year ;D).
Furthermore, I could have sprawled Montaukshire more if I had not filled the entire blasted map with large city tiles(lag!  eeek!), and if I had cleaned/re-arranged my plugins folder back then (as I have now, complete with drag and drop modules). The DATPacker would have helped a lot, too!

Looking forward to more from everyone else!  :thumbsup:

Post by: Kokopelli on February 08, 2007, 01:28:22 PM
I havesome questions for Dusk Trooper or anyone else who has a huge region. Did you create the whole region all at once? Is there a way to add city squares to an existing region without reconfiguring the entire region and blowoing up the cities already created? If so, how do you do it? Thanks
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: Alek King of SC4 on February 08, 2007, 01:42:11 PM
yes you can add to a region config, i have done that numerous times just open the config.bmp in a photo editing program, and increase the size, leaving the part already done untouched, then paint in (red, green blue) what ever sized tiles you want, when you start the game they will show up as blank tiles in your region.
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: Kokopelli on February 08, 2007, 01:45:21 PM
when you say "untouched" do you mean it should be black? Then the new tiles blue (green or red). I think I got it. thanks
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: Alek King of SC4 on February 08, 2007, 02:05:20 PM
no when you open the config file it will be a combo of blue red and green squares, increase the image size, the original part should remain the same, but there should not be extra blank space, fill this in accordingly.
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots

A couple of questions from a dummy.

How in the @#$*% do you get the entire region in a .jpg without the region icon showing up in the lower left hand corner and what do you use to include the entire region?

Thanks

Post by: urban on February 09, 2007, 07:36:57 AM
you need to download the region census, it's a tool which allows you to see the whole region without starting the game. you can save the pictures aswell. But I have to say, that I don't know, where you can download it. sorry, but I'll take a look

Some pretty good regions in here.  Very good, in fact.  urban, that region is gigantic!  Good luck trying to finish that one.  I'll look into that CJ.

How in the @#$*% do you get the entire region in a .jpg without the region icon showing up in the lower left hand corner and what do you use to include the entire region?

Ahh, according to ST, the version that's on the official "Region Census" website (located here (http://home.comcast.net/~sawtooth1178/)) is corrupted.  So the only place I know to get it would be right here (http://www.simphoni.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=10949&hl=Region+Census), and you have to be a registered member to get it.  Don't know how up to date it is, but it's the only one I know of...

Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: freedo50 on February 16, 2007, 01:01:41 PM
urban, if you put your beach mod in a folder named zzzz_bechmod then SC4 will load that last and it will be the active beach mod, it should just overwrite the dirty grey one
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: urban on February 16, 2007, 02:02:11 PM

shall I put the Beach mod file in an extra folder, in the puginfolder somewhere, or in the terrain mod folder?

and then? I shall name the folder zzzz_bechmod or zzzz_beachmod ??

I'll try and thx if it works it would be so great :)

Edit: It worked thx a lot :thumbsup:

Very well done HabLeUrG. I have seen this in your MD (but I think I'll comment on it here). Regardless of how it was made, it must have taken some time to do, and the effort that went into it shows.

ABCsan: The region is nice, but the circular farms are exemplary. Those must have taken some time to look right. I also like the "Pacman" look used in the second. Well done.

Here are two shots of what I've done in my region (Buffalo) so far.  As you can see, I've changed the terrain and water since starting this region, and started adding trees (I am not finished).  I also need to add in farmland in the lower left side, and just continue working in general.

Some pretty good regions in here.  Very good, in fact.  urban, that region is gigantic!  Good luck trying to finish that one.  I'll look into that CJ.

Ahh, according to ST, the version that's on the official "Region Census" website (located here (http://home.comcast.net/~sawtooth1178/)) is corrupted.  So the only place I know to get it would be right here (http://www.simphoni.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=10949&hl=Region+Census), and you have to be a registered member to get it.  Don't know how up to date it is, but it's the only one I know of...
Yep, that's the most recent version. :) It's a very handy tool, I recommend you download it. :) Region Census (http://www.simphoni.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=10949)

Oh, yea, I started my city on lake Ontario rather than lake Erie, so my city is closer to Niagra Falls than Buffalo.

I'm gonna start a new city on the Buffalo tile next, I think.

Here's my new region (MD coming eventually :P) that I just finished treeing.  I'm using Cycledogg's Italia Terrain Mod (http://simpeg.com/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item574) (only on Peg's site), with his Meadowshire Coast Tree Controller (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=60). 
(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k25/bwatterud/PeroteCoastsmall.jpg)
I was going to develop NHP's Kinbasket Lake (http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/index.cfm?id=17827), but I decided it was too big (it was going to happen eventually, better now than halfway through developing it), and found NHP's Perote Coast (http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/index.cfm?id=17857), which has a lot of the elements that I liked about the Kinbasket Lake map, in a much smaller package (35 quads instead of 81).

Here is a shot a my new hand made region.  It's not suppose to be perfect as I will be terraforming as I go.  But the main shape is there.........I think.  I really don't like changes in elevation, that's why there are alot of flat spots.

It's a real-life area in Germany called "Ruhr-area", or "Ruhrgebiet" in German. The region stretches out from "Duisburg" in the north-west to "Sauerlands Winterberg" in the south-east... About, I think 100km +  $%Grinno$%

Ahh...here's my small region of slightly less than 400,000 citizens with rather plain topographic features:

(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b99/JetWarrior/SimCity%204%20Pics/RegionOverview.jpg)

And transportation map:
(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b99/JetWarrior/SimCity%204%20Pics/RegionTransportationView.jpg)

There'll be an airport to the north of what's built, you can see where the seaport's going to go (on the southeast corner of the region), and Downtown will be on that flat piece of ground directly north and across the river from the seaport.

This is what I hope it will become one day...

This is the region I am working on.  Going to start an MD soon with it but have been working on it for over a month and a half just to get it where it is now ... with terraforming done, all major roadways and rail placed.  Took awhile because it is huge 16x15 large squares.

Let me know your thoughts on it....

Yes it is not total terraformed I used some maps from other maps I liked, bits and pieces here and there and then had to mold them together and make it look seamless and then went through and added my own features that I wanted such as wider rivers and more streams.  Smoothed and roughed, its been a long process.

You must have put a lot of time into creating that map, will it be released?

Thats cause i simply edited the hong kong map  ;)  Its based on that but completely altered.

Here a shot taken from region census, let me know what you think.

If you think i should release it, i will. But im not sure how that works.

Great region shot Nardo.  It all moves very organically, no hard edges(well not many, just in the outskirts, but I'll forgive you :thumbsup:).  The farm land stretching out from the cities looks very good, and, I know from personal experience, takes a lot of effort to cover that much ground.  keep up the good work!

@TeaCat: I love the terrain and the parts you've started developing look great.  Hope to see more of it.

I started working on this region when I picked up the game from a few years of absense.
My goal was to fill it with 10M of sims but that would be one large city with not to much nature.  &Thk/(
The main goal now is 5M max and room for forrest and some smaller towns.

here are images from three of the regions I've worked over the past 18 months or so.  I usually develop a region for awhile, then move on the next and then eventually back again.  There are so many maps I like to build on it's hard to choose just one....two of the images are linked as they are too big to post here, if I shrunk them down any further there wouldn't be much to look at.

This is Aroknan and the region's pop is sitting at around 5.4 million, the most populated tile hosting 1.1 million Sims.....
(http://img512.imageshack.us/img512/28/aroknan020408db1.jpg)

This was the CJ map I was working on last year, but ran out of free time to continue the CJ.  Anyways, the region so far has topped out at 8.3 million, the most populated tile having just over 900k Sims.....
Elessedil (http://img512.imageshack.us/img512/4579/elessedil020408kt6.jpg)

This region has barely even gotten started when I got the itch to develop the Aroknan map.....Not sure of the pop, but it's below 1 mil.
Four Rivers Dale (http://img512.imageshack.us/img512/9683/fourriversdale020408va2.jpg)

I hope you enjoyed the images of my humble regions.  Later this spring or early summer I'll be starting a MD with another SC4D member in which I'll be educated in how to build canals, seawalls and other things I haven't tried my hand at yet. ;)  I'm really looking forward to it.

Here are two shots from the region I am currently working on.

Its called the Greater Terran Region, and I am currently doing a MD on it as well.  If you want to have a look, there are links to it in my signature.

Images are rather large.  Click on the thumbnails to view them in FULL RESOLUTION!

Transportation view.  Note: I use the Rural Highway (RHW) network, and it does not show up too well on this view.  (If you look closely, there are thin green lines where they travel though).  Again, there are texture mis-alignments.  I am not sure which transport view to use, the default or a custom made one.

That's about 13 large tiles wide & 13 high. To be to scale, I would imagine it'd have to be at least 10 times the size it is now.

Here's a region I've been working on intently for the past few weeks.  The region is a 4x4 section of the north-eastern corner of the Barsalonia map and has a pop of 399,615 as of thirty minutes ago.  The two farming communities in the north have a combined pop of just under 28k all low density zoning and around 17k farm jobs.  The two cities to the south have a combined pop of just over 371k and is a mix of 80% medium density and 20% high density, with medium zoned and plopped industry.

That's about 13 large tiles wide & 13 high. To be to scale, I would imagine it'd have to be at least 10 times the size it is now.
After some viewing on Google Maps I think you should have a region of about 1000x800 large tiles to be to scale. Need a large mainframe to run the game then....
In my opinion a region of 5x5 large tiles is enough for my two years old AMD 3500+ machine.

But: beautiful work everyone. &apls

Barsalonia's North-East quadrant keeps growing by leaps and bounds.  Over the past 8 days, I've developed two more city tiles, both along the western edge of the quadrant.  One is another farming community with just under 12k job and a pop of 25K+, and the second is a medium density city of just under 150k, all commercial/residential and no industry zoned yet.  Total pop for the quadrant so far is just a smidgen under 898K.

Well, I've always said I love the game and when I get the itch to play, I go for hours at a time....longest time spent in one session on this region was maybe 12 hours when I first began developing it.  In fact, I'm thinking of playing for an hour or two before I call it a night ;) 

Oh, and I've never finished a region yet myself  :P .....I have so many maps I want to build on that are my own and those from others that I could never stick to just one. ::)  This region however, I intend to complete by taking the original 7x7 large city region and breaking it down into 5 smaller parts [1 4x4, 2 3x3's and 2 3x2's], the largest being the section I'm working on now.  When this section's 16 quads are completed, I'll simply transfer the city tiles back to the original region in the game.  I'll do the same for the 4 remaining sections.

This is my current region, Costa del Tuskalusa. I finally got all the tiles opened (its a huge map) and something that resembles the basic transportation structure in all of them. I still need to build an airport and a main seaport, as well as finish farm development in the rural, flat regions of the map. And fix the forests along city borders.

Thanks for your comments all.  I live in Indiana, USA and take a lot of inspiration from Indianapolis and the surrounding areas/farmland. Eventually when the core (old grid) of the main city is done, he farm parcels will be turned into sprawling suburbs.

Beautiful regions here!

Finally I dare to show one of my own. I started this last month.

I terraformed it very flat and rectangular. For two reasons:
1. I live in flat and sometimes very rectangular country; The Netherlands.
2. The game asks for rectangularity, so I give the game rectangularity.
3. I like this.

First I flattened everything to harbourheight with Terraformer. Then I dug out the water. After that I went into one city, raised a part with Smoncries ground raiser, so that the difference exactly fits the heights of NAM bridges, Buddybuds sunken highways etc. Then I spread this height to everywhere I wanted.

Purpose: a very large port. Guess why I called it Rotterdam.

I could not find the thread where Jeronij explains how to use Imageshack to post images. So I did it the stubpid way. Sorry for that.... If someone helps me to find it, I will do it the proper way next time.

Thanks in advance.

Yes it is one of my maps.  It's the NHP Barsalonia Mini-Map Pak available on the LEX.  I'm not real big on seaports, or rail for that matter which is why you'll never see rail in my regions and very few ports.  So far it hasn't hurt development in my regions as you can see from the region images I post here ;)

My current region dubbed, as of right now, Stormshoe Coast.

This was my first successful foray with the Terraformer, taking one of the smaller Invermere Valley sectional maps, and changing the river into a coastline.  Turned out pretty well, I think. 

Below is my current plan of attack for development.

Hopefully now I will be able to embed the picture in the post the way everyone does it....
Yeah it worked!

(http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk63/FrankU_bucket/Rotterdam5klein.jpg)

I am aiming at building a very large port and city (5x5 large tiles). The containerport is finished. The island in the centre will become my oil harbour. The island in the west will become, someday, mu large airport.
Left and right from the river towards the north I plan some smaller scale old town harbours. There is a small marina already.
The rest will be city with suburbs and highrises, who knows. But canals and water will play a large role.

I just build and build. As for now nobody lives here... It's just plopping away.
But I plan to let immigration start soon.

@penguin007 - Those farms look rather sparse, given the terrain -- especially around the towns.

Otherwise, beautiful shot.

Modified his Falcor region some (still have a few more changes I'd like to make). You can see the formations of 2 small towns in the top left on the lake in the mountains (which I'm going to claim in my MD to be a manmade lake like Lake Meade), and the new port I'm starting to work on at the bottom.

I have to agree with CarmineHilton, that is one great map.  And the trees that you have added to very nice.  Not too much or too little.  Now I would like to see some cities by you.
And it's nice to see you around again.

All three maps are really stunning!
How on Earth do you make these maps playable? I am playing on 5x5 large maps map, with only three cities with some real development and the game is really slowing down already.
What is going to happen when I develop 10 or all 25 cities? I worry already.
Specs:
1 Gig RAM
3500+ AMD processor
256Mb Graphics card
Not too large, but not slow either, I thought....
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: M4346 on May 14, 2008, 09:44:47 AM
Thanks everyone! I'm glad you like it!  ()stsfd()

And also, Pat, it's good to see you again as well! And don't worry, I'm still alive and kicking! ;) Don't get too excited about that prospective MD just yet though. ;)

Specifically to FrankU... I am embarrassed to admit that I play on an even slower / older laptop computer and a 7x7 large city tiles map. I guess the secret ingredients are passion, patience and persistence! :P
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: BigSlark on May 14, 2008, 11:26:04 AM
FrankU, until very recently I played on an AMD machine with worse specs than that and the game ran okay with 3.5 GB of plugins. Fully developed large cities took awhile to render when I would quickly move around the map, other than that, I didn't notice any problems.

Cheers,
Kevin
Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: FrankU on May 16, 2008, 05:31:14 AM
Thanks Big Slark.
Surely one of the issues here is: when do you self think there is a problem rising?
I read in another thread that someone had his computer taking an hour to start the game. I definitely would have given up after 15 minutes and would have thought my machine broke down.
So how large is the problem?
In my case, I feel some slowdown, but the game works OK.
This week I finally Datpacked my plugins and this speeded up more than I thought. And yes, I know I should have done that earlier.

First of all : Great region shots all of you. Its very inspiring to look at them.
I see its mentioned about running a big region. Is this a problem? I am running a big one now, and i dont see any differences compared to a small one. However, starting a big city takes of course longer time than a small one. Am i right or wrong?

Some great region shots here!  Below is my latest effort (undeveloped)  The area to the north-west of the mountains is based loosely on the volcanic Auckland area of New Zealand, and the region (developed) will be called New Gelderland (spot the link!).   This is hopefully going to be my most completed region.  I usually give up for some reason.  I hope to keep it in check by showing it in a CJ/MD sometime soon!

Hope you like!

bighead99: that's just like looking at Google Earth, something i'm not a stranger to.  I love the river parklands!  Genius.

this is a test shot of a region I gave up some months ago when I embarked on my current Jakarta MD. It is based on the island of Mindanao, Philippines; the map is made by flamesrock (click here (http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/index.cfm?id=5369)).

(http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/1469/mindanaocollagezm3.th.jpg) (http://img230.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mindanaocollagezm3.jpg)


As for my Jakarta project, I'm coming up with a massive mosaic of the whole city (not a region shot, you'll see  ;)). I'm having quite some trouble finding a good image hosting site that allows me to upload large files (around 10Mb) and opens up the large image in a new window, instead of asking to download the file.

Any help? what is the right link to post in the forum?  &ops

btw, do you guys know any good free program that converts bmp or png into smaller size files without loosing to much quality? when I save my pictures into .jpg the results are quite bad.

thanks!!

Here's a link to my new region that I just finished the layout for. I'm using the Whitefall map by Shadow Assassin, and have edited it in places to allow me to build docks slightly easier than normal.

(http://i527.photobucket.com/albums/cc359/NH08AVFC/Whitefall.jpg)

As you can see in the top left corner i've just started development, thats a big power station there. Most of the dark green area covered by trees will be developed, and the lighter land will probably then have new trees placed on that after most of the development. I hope to have one large city towards the bottom right, you can see where I have left a region free of most of the roads. Then a few more smaller cities surrounding the north west bays, and several towns and villages dotted about. Plus a large harbour to the West will be constructed.

Fingers crossed this will be my first serious and best ever region.

Hey Emopunk85, I can gurantee if its anything CP releated it can be found on the LEX and its well worth it.. If you need help finding it lemme know I can help you...

So anyways here is 2 regional maps I play with... One by NHP is Anchor Isles Map by Blade2k5 and the other Map I play is a map I made for BLaM and its the Meadow Hill's Map.... I will be sending it off to a pro to fix it for proper release... anyways here they are...

Heya everyone,
WOW! I give a big  &apls to all the regions posted, amazing.
I recently re-installed SC4 and I can't wait to get back into the region building.  After much searching and frustration with plugins and addons and dependancies (I hate dependancies  ()what() ), I've decided to take a shot at creating some of my own stuff.
To start, I'm a rediculous Final Fantasy nerd, so I'm going to take a whack at some creation.  Step one will naturally be land, you need something to build on hah.  So I will be creating (possibly more than 1) FF region.  I'll post pictures here of the finished region, and the resulting cities as I create them.

~Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but theres sooo much to this site that it is quite overwhelming.

The big city is slowly flowing over the mountain range and is rapidly changing an old town into a nice suburb. The city in the north is also running out of space fast.

Flame 1396: wow, very dense! Can't wait to see how you are going to fill your region.
DarkLoki (nice name by the way): good work.

And it's time I showed a bit of my own work.
A large port area, 6x3 large citytiles.

Clearly, there's a lot of work to do on the outskirts of the city. Have started the rural sections, though.

2 years eh?  Wow!  I get so far into developing a region, then get bored with it and move on to the next.....of course, when you have as many maps as I do that I want to develop, it's difficult to stick with one until it's completed.  You obviuosly have more patience than I do webelch :thumbsup:

Post by: FrankU on November 10, 2008, 06:25:50 AM
I can agree with Blade2k5.
I am not able to work on a region for a long time. Somehow I always get distracted...

On some point I felt very inclined to do a large rural area, and I built quite a lot. Then I stumbled upon Emilin's Seaport tutorial. It grabbed my attention and then I just wanted to do a very large port. After having worked for some time on that port I was not happy with the map, so I made a different one.
And so on, and so on.

So, I probably will never have finished any map I ever start with. But, hey; I have a lot of fun and that's what this game is about.
Sometimes people ask: when is het game finished? Is there a way to win? They just don't know....

Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: voltaic on January 09, 2009, 05:40:22 AM
Thx art, FrankU and RBC.. :)

Well.. Just the usual Cycledogg-Things. The Terrain-Mod is the Columbus Terrain Mod and the trees.. Jep, here it's not so simple. I use for some lower regions PEG's seasonal trees, CP's seasonal trees.. the SFBT-birchs.. Well - all these seasonal things in combination with douglas trees, and in higher regions (like Vercors & Chartreuse in the left/right edge of this map) just the douglas trees. The rockmod is this one: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=35
..and i use only jrj's semitransparent plop-water. (and PEG's pond-kit for the gd. lac de laffrey, but i think i will change that, caused in the difference between jrj's and PEG's water-color..)

Post by: jonno on January 14, 2009, 01:50:39 PM
OK, here is part of my region Brockway.  I can't show the whole region because it is too big (16x12 extra large maps)

This is the most populous area of this region, as most of the region is still untouched.  This area is made up of about 7 extra large cities.  Presently, it has about 825 000 sims.  It's has proven to be quite a challange to build because everything is built on such steep slopes; most every building was done one piece of zone at a time.  The steep slope actually hides a large portion of the city on the north sides of the hill.  Unfortunately, I cannot load one of the cities (the one in the center just below the airport that has no trees) because it causes SC4 to crash everytime I try.  I've given up hope on finding ways to load it up, so i will replace it and start over again soon.

This is an island in the center of a large lake.  It's probably time I build some bridges off of it, but the city that won't load up is blocking access to the shore.  I think my next step will be to finish replacing all the farms with houses, than to finish connecting some of the railways and highways that presently lead nowhere.

(http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/3439/brockway1231959178hx5.png)

Here is the transportation map.  Please excuse all the airport symbols, there are apparantly alot of heliports scattered about.

This is my new region I'm working on called Golden Coast.  It's my first region made with terraformer and I wanted to incorporate mountains, plains, a coast, islands and a river for variety.

I plan on eventually covering the whole plain with city, but that's gonna take a while.  I'll also put a few small towns up in the mountains.   You can see some of the avenues layout for the near future development.

Ok here is my new region, still working on some details.  It is 12x12 large cities (which is smaller than my old one).  I'll probably add some more small islands, and maybe expand the mountains a little longer.  But I'd like to hear everyone else's opinions on what I should add.  I imported the island with the cities on it from my old region, and so far I've added a few rivers.

Commments?  suggestions?

Since i got SC4, i have allways played the same region. And for that, the region have grown during the years. Uploading a picture of the entire region is not easy due to the size of the picture. But here are a part. It is a view of the capital Victoria City. A city with a population of 1,2 million included the suburbs. On the upper left you'll see Bonita City, a smaller city with a population of 310 000. This is a rather old part of the region and i have some plans about chancing to NAM highways. I also are chancing som of the hills and mountains. As you can see the terrain are not made with any external programs.

Ryusuke516 : Thanks. I dont think there is any limit on how big the region can be. Well, maybe your computer sets up some limits.
I started with a normal region, finished it but didnt want to start from scratch with a new, so i enlarged it little by little as i needed more space.

JoeST : I'm not shure. Its a mix of small, medium and large city tiles. Maybe i'll check it out, but if counted in only small city tiles, i think the size is about 75x110 where about 65x65 are finished.

That's got to be the most impressive region shot I've seen in a long time, maybe ever! The urban sprawl looks so organic, like a real city growing outwards. I did look at the enlarged version btw.

there are some really nice regions here.  this is my region of busan.  its based on the real city of busan, south korea.  i dont remember how i really made this map
but it was from an old thread on simtop. using google earth and a 'how to' from a train simulation website....i think.....its been a while now. anyways, its a fairly
accurate map in my opinion and has great potential.  i forgot to mention, its 8x8 large city tiles.

It's huge, 8x8 large tiles.  I may upload the bitmap if anyone wants it.  About 235 thousand sims live here, I'm expecting the pop to hit about 2-2.5 million fairly easily.  Will have to start pushing into the mountains at 3-4 million.

Ok, I want people's opinion on this one.  I use one giant region.  I am going to increase the size of this region, and do some more terraforming.  I'm going to add more tiles onto the right side of the map.  What I can't decide is whether to keep with the mountain theme of the island, or maybe go for flatter and have some winding rivers and plains.  I will possibly remove the small island covered with cities because I transplanted it there from another region and it doesn't really belong, or fit in (Although the 1.5 million sims really helped keep high density demand up).  The region is currently 12 X 12 of the largest cities, and I think i will increase it to 12 X 18.  Anyone have any suggestions which direction I should go?  Comments and criticisms welcome.

Thanks everyone.  For terrain mods, looking at my plugins folder, I have a mixture of CPT Olympic and CPT Italia Terrain mods, and JRN_PEG_Limestone for the cliff faces.

I am in the process of expanding the region right now.  I'll post the picture when I'm finished.

Here's a hand-terraformed canyon area of one of the regions I'm working on using only the in-game tools.  This is a 4x4 portion of the total 12x12 large tile size region.

A new region I startet working on earlier this week. This is a downscaled (and slightly cutted) version of NHP's Omaha map from Simtropolis. It's my plan to recreat the real Omaha City - starting with the main roads and streams. Initialy I started with NHP's original sized map, which fitted perfectly to the RHW-system, but the population grew all to big. Instead of 9x7 it's 4x4 big tiles, which I think is mutch better. Not for the realism, but 10 people in a suburben house isn't realistic anyways, and in a city with almost nothing else than suburbia, it would grow way to big (as mentioned before). I have to use the maxis highways (else the interchanges would grow far to big), but that's the only minus.

There's still a looong way to go, but this could end up pretty good:

Here is the region I'm currently working on. It's 16x16 large tiles in size. I'm very happy with how the coastlines turned out considering I drew them by hand. Currently I'm working on the three major mountain ranges using SC4Terraformer. The mesa area is still in it's infancy stages and will look much better once I add some spires and roughness to the mesas along with some talus slopes at their bases.

The coastline was drawn by hand in Photoshop since I find the use of a tablet far more organic to the end result. I'm not too happy with the mesa area and plan to rework it. The Canyonlands map is such an inspiration that I want to really make something special in that area of the map. The mountains are a handcrafted work in progress for the most part. It's a constant switch between using SC4Terraformer and SC4 ingame tools. I like the end results best when I use the ingame tools for mountains but SC4Terraformer is a necessity for keeping everything looking proper across city tiles.

Why does part of the far bottom left look a lot like Eastern Shores and Hampton Roads?

Well I love the geography of those areas and certainly took them to heart on that portion of the map. I love the look and feel of various aspects of that section of the eastern seaboard of the US. The eventual goal is to have some nicely developed resort areas there along what are to be sand bars and beaches. Below it is a loose tribute to the Mississippi delta area.

The region as a whole is a combination of freeform creativity combined with a few ideas pulled from areas found in the real world. I figure I'll have far more fun building cities and towns if I don't have to fret about how poorly I make rivers of my own for instance.

Sean, your map is a fantastic mix of the outerbanks, NC, Lake Winnipeg and St.Louis riverbank.  or at least that's what I can gander from it!  Looks great though!  Might want some foothills for those obnoxiously tall mountains

-sean
Yeah those mountains have been annoying me and obnoxious is exactly what they are everytime I look at that portion of my region. Each time I attempt to terraform them further, I've been completely annoyed with my efforts and end up not saving the tile. I finally declared a truce on my region and decided to leave them alone until the urge strikes me to fix them. Mountains:20, SeanSC4:0 (for now). That's what prompted me to take my hills further along and start adding in some foothills and flora.

I've started playing with one of the hill tiles but I can't decide between making some farms or trying my hand at a few streams. Some of the screenshots of people's efforts in the Rural thread are extremely inspiring given the obvious talent showcased by everyone.

I've been terraforming so long now. It's time to put the region on the map as they say with some farms, towns and maybe a city or two.

Notes to self right about now:

1) It's easier to add in wide-curve railroads and roads prior to adding in dense areas of flora.
2) Add in wide-curve railroads before you try and add the roads if possible.
3) Canal, stream and pond sets don't like hilly areas very much.

Very true.  My region is entirely mountains, and I have made no use of any canal sets; all they do is make scrolling through the menus take longer. The only thing that I have found that kind of works if you look at it from a distance is the little water plops that I have in my flora menu.

Here's my new region......

(http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii6/djvandrake/farallon.jpg)

I decided to abandon my current project because I just wasn't happy with how it was turning out.  Too bland and not enough challenge in the terrain. That and I made some serious layout blunders early on.  So, I'm going to give this one a go.

here's the region i'll hopefully start playing with.
it's obviously based on the region of hobart (tasmania, australia), but it's a collage of three regions i liked and had downloaded lot of time ago.  when i recently took my sc4 and installed it again, i had to select the region i want to develop, but can't decide so i started playing with those maps i had downloaded and here's the (almost) final product.

i also played a bit with the terraformer, so some areas had suffered some changes..

it ended being a really huge map (at least compared with those i had played before).

(http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/4562/aurumregion.jpg)

for those of you who know this area (i don't, so google-earth was a good help), i'm planning the capital city not where the city of hobart is in real life by the derwent river, but where sorell and midway point are situated, in the mouth of the orielton river, in the hobart portion of my map.

comments are welcome  :thumbsup:

I created that one myself based off of some DEM data and some massaging of the resulting grayscale.

There is nothing easy in that region though. Everywhere poses some sort of a challenge when it comes to construction which is a lot of fun.

Thanks Joan.  ;D  I made this map myself by importing a greyscale of terrain from somewhere in New Zealand, then I tweaked it a bit here and there to get what I wanted.  Speaking of tweaking, here's the final result that I'm going to start building on.

That is a very nice region, with beautiful varying landscapes.

I do have something completely different. The landscape is dull: completly flat. But the aim is not to make a realistically landscaped city, but to make a large metropolis.
The base of the city is a square of about 40 tiles wide made by Avenues. Within these squares I build neighbourhoods, commercials and/or industry. Of course there are stretched squares, diagonalised ones and other distortions. I developed about 9 cities out of 18. All together I reached 2M inhabitants and I was very happy to see stage 10 industrials grow. And I have some real skyscraper districts for the first time since I play SC4 (since 2005).
The only networks I use are Street/Road/Avenue, Bus and some heavy Rail. And I must say I am not a very crafted rail builder. Some railwaystations are not used at all, some other are hopelessly overcrowded.

Now take a look:

just started this region, this is the first city . Restarted with a new region because of all the sexy new NAM features, RHW, NWM, GLR etc... not to mention CAM. This is my first shot at a "realistic" region. the cities surounding the developed tiles now will be rural farm areas and there is another city planned around the mouth of the river. Note I play on medium tiles as I find this easier. The tree patch in the rightmost tile is an RHW that will be to connect all the cities along the coast of a rather large region. Also, as in all my regions, I make extensive use of heavy rail as the main source of public transit other than buses, although subway and GLR is also used (mostly GLR cuz I like the way it looks :))

...is 7x8 but i cutted the map square and resized it. Tried the original map at first, but it was  to massive. The problem with realistic sized maps from the real world is, that buildings, parks, interchanges etc. in SC4 isn't realisticly sized.

Although I'll admit I needed to use a money cheat for the airport only, those are so expensive!!!

Actually, when you think about it, 80km x 80km is about right for a real sized region that includes a central metropolis, several mid-sized satellite cities far enough from each other and from the main hub, real rural sprawls, as well as some wilderness areas. The only limits to it (apart from the time required to fully develop the region) would be the simulator not being able to deal with RL transportation networks, even with what the NAM does, and the huge memory required to process everything.

That brings me to the question:
I always thought that a large region does slow down gameplay, but is that really the case? Of course a large region does take a lot of HD-space, but that isn't a problem.
While playing the game you have your city, only one at a time, and you have the plugins, always the same for your region, and as far as I understand the game takes into account some facts from the neighbouring cities, which is max 8 of them. And that number can be reached for the central city in an 3x3 region already.
And yes, I know there are some facts from the whole region taken into account such as inhabitants etc.
So I can imagine that it doesn't matter if there are another 391 cities attached to the city I am playing in....

Who can elaborate on this?

It would be nice to build on such an enormous region without fear form crashing of extreme slowdown....

To be honest, I'd be curious to hear the answer too. I've heard this and accepted it for a while, but I can't imagine looking at a big region in region view would slow it down that much.

Anyway, Here's the region I'm working on right now. This region is actually 2 regions that I spent just about all day trying to put together. It was a lot of work but I'm happy with the result. In case it isn't blindingly obvious, the left half of the region was there originally, and today I added in the right side. The right side was originally a real world map, and for the most part the general layout is the same, I just made it a lot flatter to make it easier to build on and to match the left side. I seem to have screwed up the coastline on the left half, but I don't really care right now, it's good enough :P

This region is built in a Synoecism style (http://synoecism.blogspot.com/p/introduction-to-synoecism.html) with the 6 towns all being established simultaneously and growing at a similar pace. I'll have to catch the new towns up since I want all of the towns to one day grow to the point where they form one huge city, although that could take a while. My population right now is about 195,000, but for absolutely no mid- or high-density, I think that's pretty good. There are a bunch more places I could establish towns, and I guess I should do that before these ones get too big.

Just for fun, bragging rights go to whoever can guess the two regions I spliced together!

Yes, Mars has clouds. It's true that the Martian atmosphere is about 100 times less dense that the Terran one, but still it's enough for clouds and nice sky colors.

A very WIP region, the SC4 Terraformer really [insert swear word] my region.  As a result, I wasn't able to load any other cities but one. :angrymore:  So I was lucky that I was able to revive two cities from my previous region into this.  So yeah, that's why there is some rough edges and I have to make EVERYTHING by hand. :(  Again, what I mean by WIP, I mean that some areas in this map is disappear or added.  For example, the bottom left corner tile will be deleted because I didn't like the results.  Any suggestions are welcome!

i have no FAR-angled maxis highways.
what you see it's just a good use of the standard curves, the illusion of FAR-angled roads comes from the region view itself.

by now i've used FAR pieces only for RHW and some railroads

Well, it was a lot of time to make that small part of the region. I created the region in August last year. But the region was completely abandoned for 4 months, when I made the USL mod.
The yellow farms are a tiny self made mod. I changed one of the brown Maxis farm texture to a yellow BSC farm texture. Less ugly brown, more colorful, looks much better. The close zooms are nice too.

Here's what I have! This is The Farrington Metropolitan Area, as it stands. I hope to have it completed during my holidays. The next plan is to build an airport in the east where you can see all the empty land. This is only a small parcel f the whole region, but I like to develop my communities slowly and gradually. It took me three months to do the CBD and the city centre, and now I'm moving onto boroughs and suburbs.

I hope to show some transport maps soon. The networks of highways and railways actually looks rather impressive on the map.

Here you can see my region http://ggzagor.deviantart.com/#/d418nvl

Region: SanFrancisco ( p.: 1.400.000)
Main City: LaGrange  ( p.: 380.000)
In total there are 69 cities, many yet to be developed.

The realization of this region began in 2003 and is still in progress.
The longevity of SimCity 4, for those who love build and operate, is infinite. This is thanks to the genius of those who developed the game
and to the many modders to make available, to others for free, their creativity realizing masterpieces.

Here's an updated look at my latest region which now has a population of just under 130,000 and still mainly farming towns/cities.  Still have a lot of tree planting to do yet which takes more time than developing.

SeanSc4: That region looks amazing.  :)

This region I just finished tree-ing and rendering Using Orange's Pyrenean terrain mod & the Missouri Breaks tree controller.

I may make this into a cj, mostly depending on how I grow/build this. Which I currently have not decided.

@ SeanSC4
That's one awesome region... great relief and the terrain mod really adds to the overall awesomeness... can't wait to see it grow some houses &apls


So, since I'm getting asked every now and then what's "coming soon" for like 6 years now - give or take a few - I guess I present a first-time region shot of it:
(http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Nodyme/SimCity4/CrescentCity/crescent_city.jpg)

not that much actually, 2.2 million sims fighting for 3.7 million jobs...
the thing is, this seems to be the revision of v23.1 beta and there's still plenty of work and rework to do. yet another 3 tiles to be cured of the pox and just as I take this picture my eyes spot another few places to be reworked yet again. The hinterland (yes that's english) is basically not even created yet except for some main roadwork, trees forrests and other detailing flora is inexistent aswell...
And I don't even mention what the new NAM/RHW/NWM will do to it, still experimenting on another region  :satisfied:
That's why it's coming soon for soooo long now  $%#Ninj2

Oh, funfact: the downtown area you (most proably don't) see here has been entirely rebuilt 5 times and tweaked another 3 times, number 4 just parked up the driveway...

Actually the "tool" that I use is a tool that makes all jobs  into homejobs. which means that you don't have to worry of putting commercial places or industrial places to satisfify the demand of jobs for residential. You can like put only residential zones in a full large city and wont need to worry about jobs. And what I do is that I zone all residential with small amount of commercial zones to make it more realistic and I actually worry more in decoration of the city.

here it is the file  :thumbsup:
http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/files/file/22255-rcimulti-modpack-for-sc4-delux-rushhour/

recommend you to read the whole thing carefully to fully understand how is used. and in exchange you would get an awesome prize! &apls

Thanks to all modders, I have always introduced the new changes, in many cases redesigning the entire city. I never felt the desire to start a new region. There are 94 cities in SanFrancisco, organize and manage to always have in positive economic activity is an arduous task.....but very funny!

I don't think that it's as huge as you think, cos that arent buildings all over the place, but just trees (on the first picture with atumn colors, and on the other covered with snow). Am I right? :) If you look closer then you can actually spot where the actual cities are. It would be kind of strange to have population right up to the mountains picks (-tops,I don't know how to wright it, I'm not from an english speaking country). Or is it really SO HUDGE?? :D

First, both pictures date back from 2006. Second, At that time the largest city was under 100,000. Most of this is hand plopped Peg seasonal trees. I had a few tricks to make this less of a pain to accomplish. It is actually seasonal trees mixed with Peg god mode pines... I had done a tutorial (http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/topic/6838-simtropolians-guide-to-the-virual-world/page__st__90) (it's somewhere down that page) back when I had an active CJ on Simtropolis. Still it took a about an hour to cover a full large tile.

Right now I am planning on building in a T formation, with a residential large city in 2nd from the top on the left, with a small residential and primary farming area to the North, with an Industrial city to the East, and a Commercial city to the south, with the only city connections being a RHW-10, dedicated passenger train lines(freight blockers used in Industrial city), and a high speed rail line going to the Industrial and Commercial cities.  I have never tried running 4 cities at once, so it should be fun, and hopefully I can manage to get past 100 game years before I get bored and want to start over  lol

This isn't quite the default, I modified it slightly by pulling the snow textures down to cover much of the high elevation rocky textures to better reflect a wetter climate.

I doubt I get much farther than the original 4 cities before I blow it all up and start over.  I actually did get that map here though, I like it, it has some nice rolling hills and it generally easy to lay transit on, plus I got used to the ennodi slope mod finally(I forced myself to get used to it) and I now like it as well.

I'm glad you liked it...the map that is.  Have fun with it. :thumbsup:

Its a nice map.  I assume you made it and I have to say, great job, its by far my favorite map to use.  I do modify it sometimes to add more rivers in the tiles I like to use in order to get high ferry usage but its a very easy map to play on.

Could it be The Biggest Simcity Region in "Construction"? :-\

size 24 x 24 large cities
population goal: 500 000 000 inhabitants &hlp
overall development: 25% of the whole region
Current Population: 19 854 565

Well I always wanted to show my region project
But sadly I may not finish in time, since Simcity 5 may be released in 2013 , However I would try my best to finish it
Lets continue....
This is Carson Oceaside Metropolitanian Area as many of you haved seem. :o :o

I started working on a 2nd region a few months ago and here is what I have so far.  I never could really decide on a terrain mod, so I have just stuck with this one.  The areas covered with city are about the only flat parts.  Typically, I don't build skyscraper cities, but because of the limited space I had tried to get a few office buildings in.  Once a few popped up, they wouldn't stop, so the city in the corner has gotten a little out of hand.  Still trying to figure out where I can put an airport.

And, so as not to forget about my first region, here is one of my favourite parts:

what about a terrain mod with a little less of that flashy green and therefore more character around the mountain tops? appalacian, missouri breaks or italian maybe?
as for the airport, from the area visible I guess a small one at the coastal area, like the lower middle of this pic

This features a few dozen of my cities. Schulmania has more, but some don't have much distinctiveness. These cover all developed areas to date pretty well, giving a broad view of what Schulmania looks like.

Check out my region of Prospect Bay! Built on the terrain of the Nelson, New Zealand region, this region takes inspiration from the small towns of the Washington, Oregon and Northern California coast, with the more urban areas taking queues from the historic big cities of the US west coast. And of course I can't deny the influence of some famous SimCity 4 players, especially Maarten and Casper among many others.

My philosophy so far has been organic development: Starting out with small coastal settlements and agriculture and gradually expanding things, building infrastructure as it is warranted. I also tried to stick to a roughly historical progression with my infrastructure, at first forcing everyone to rely on narrow, windy street networks and sea transportation and adding more in as the towns of the region grew. Today, nearing 250,000 total population, the region features a more than 300 mile long rail network, taking spurs into account, and I've only just gotten started with putting in two tile surface road networks, and recently built the first stretch of expressway.

Its been a while since someone posted a picture of their region, so I'll kick this topic back to life   :D

it started life off a couple of years ago as a RTMT test region, but once the testing had finished unlike all my other test regions this one I kept as my play region and have been playing with it every since, its not very realistic, and the eventual aim is to have the ocean running all along the bottom of the map and up the right-hand side

This is the transport map

I am a bit nervous to share mine, since my type of gameplay may be greatly different from everyone else's, but I have literally been playing the same region since I first got the game about ten years ago. Cities have been heavily remodeled, obliterated, and re-established. The biggest thing that has kept me in the same region is that all of my attempts at starting new regions have been extremely boring, uneventful, and fruitless, sometimes ending in bankruptcy.

Hi Erik,

This looks like a gridless city. How did he do that? Some FAR here and there I do beleive, but this is really no grod at all!

Post by: vortext on December 09, 2013, 06:38:23 AM
No fancy FAR, in fact he thought NAM was too much hassle (I tried to persuade him otherwise  :D). iirc he meticulously measured the street plan in google maps and then did some calculations to recreate it as close as possible ingame.

Post by: Swordmaster on December 09, 2013, 08:37:36 AM
I love those kind of region shots. Unfortunately, if it's NAMless it's gonna be all zigzag streets which doesn't look very nice in city view (especially painful for railroads). But great effort nonetheless.

Nice view! I also have blurred tiles sometimes, but not as bad as yours. For optimal region views, you need to save your cities in anything except zoom 1, and on a resolution no greater than 1280x1024.

Here is an image of my first attempt at a hand drawn region,

Cresano Firma:

(http://i42.tinypic.com/2i79v7l.jpg)

It is not in any way accurate, I am no artist or expert at geology so I have no idea if the mountains are to scale or in the rivers and valleys are realistic enough. For this region, all my coastal areas are orthogonal so that I can place whatever CDK or ports I want as well as bridges.

As you can see, I have just started this region (again). I have started to construct my main motorway network (RHW 6C, since they are the largest type in the UK) and I am just concentrating on my agricultural areas.

Here is a close-up of the top left city:

Well, I do agree with you... but the FAR angles from NAM have limitations too, and sometimes, achieveng one special angle requires the zigzag. Take for example Manhattan financial district, or even so, take for example a "grid" area, which is Houston's downtown.. even if it is a grid that runs, the angle is way off of what NAM brings us.. and personally, I like using it.. Of course, it is not the best result, as I agreed with you.. but it creates a balance between region view and realism, at the expense of some little bumps...  :-\

I was referring to how the landscape is not covered by a uniform growth of forest. There are lots of irregularly shaped clear patches, like most real life forests that are close to populated areas.

oh, now i understand. i reached that result by using a "tree controller" (sorry, don't know who's one; think is one made for the italia terrain mod), so when planting trees in god mode, they are planted following the irregularities of the terrain.

Yeah, it really has a lot of attractive features. Because I couldn't quite recall my plans and got curious I went digging through old emails and uncovered this region shot, from about a year ago.

(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/bzthsmubwy7l6sk/aenl.jpg?dl=0)

As you can see it was meant to be an extension to the existing region - so not quite starting over from nothing. The delta, circled in blue, is taken from yet another region, though I can't recall which one. The islands in orange was meant to be the location for The City (in capitals yes  :P). The mountain range in red would tie the two regions together. Needless to say I never got that far. In fact, this is just a composite image and the only remainder of these plans, unfortunately I might add. Seeing it again I'm quite tempted to make this reality. .  ::)

Mirror Hollow. No road or building mods. I did use the RCI mod for flexibility and the money tree mod for a sandbox mode. And of course the Nam mod for traffic. But other than that It's plain old Sim City 4.

Interesting region, and welcome to SC4 Devotion, Mayor_Erinhold!

Anyway, that Cardwell region (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2957) that others have been discussing is pretty nice! I think you all just convinced me to download it and start playing on it. I'm thinking of doing a natural-growth type of approach to it since I think it'll be fun to do retrofitting in order to put in new infrastructure such as freeways, much like RL. It seems more fun than planning everything beforehand!

I don't think I'm going to abandon my current region, since I'm gonna need my RHW fix every now and then (and this new region won't have any freeways till a lot of development comes in), but I definitely can see myself having a lot of fun with this region.

@ travismking,
Does duch a large region not slow down your computer terribly? Or is it just a matter of HD space, which wouldn't bother me at all? I always fear for large regions because of that.

Due to advances in satelite technology, the federal government has been able to economically map the rest of the country with high definition images.  A few remote villages in areas previously thought to be unpopulated were also found in the process and a crew has been dispatched by the government to make contact with the villages.

@FrankU: Here's the download link. A small note. Name the folder Mirror Hollow in your regions folder and download each file into that folder. The Mods are included hopefully  %confuso

From my MD The Winding River Project, here is the capitol of that story, Lakestead City, which I am still playing on.

This is also my 61st map that I am about to finish.

Thanks for the comment. that city region was created to look as the Capitol of my MG/CJ story, since I was working with 9 regions in all to tell the story of the Winding River Project.

It´s dusty here...  $%Grinno$%

My computer crashed, but luckily SC4 is working on a netbook. I play a region with mostly medium tiles, always 6 neighbors, and I try to hide the borders in region view (region is originally 4x4 big tiles). So the most towns cross the tile borders. The picture shows a the situation around 1860 in Misery Bay/Simmania. First railways were built and early industry started growing.

Post by: vortext on March 12, 2016, 12:14:08 PM
Thanks guys!  :thumbsup:

Though for the record I'd like to point out this is only one third of the region, and the image has been scaled down by 90% or so. Or to put that in other words, it's a friggin' huge mosaic composed of zoom1 city tile pictures, and obviously still a long way to go before it's complete. And there's yet another piece to this puzzle which I hope to unveil sooner rather than later.  $%#Ninj2

As for rock mod, I use shokthrpy's HD Rock Mods  (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/27655-shk-hd-rock-mods/), specifically #2 & #4 depending on the part of the region.

For good measure another rotation.  :)

I want to know where you find the time to mosaic z1 city tile pictures into one massive, yet horribly incomplete region photo (I mean, that bugger is only a third of your region?!? Can you even reach the furthest cities?).

Very dramatic, though I'd also like to see the non-scaled down version; it's impressive, I'm sure.

Title: Re: Show us your ... Region shots
Post by: vortext on March 13, 2016, 10:40:36 AM
Thanks once again guys!  :thumbsup:

And yeah, between taking pictures for each rotation and pasting them in the corresponding mosaic it takes about an hour-and-a-half for one 'strip' from sea to mountains, which consists of 8 large city tiles. So far I've done 4 strips, so I'm 6 hours into this endeavor. However, I'm about to enter the valley floor which should speed things up a bit because loading large, forest heavy tiles takes forever. On the other hand there are a lot of medium and small tiles awaiting. . .  :-\ 

And yes, I can reach all my cities. The region is only 12x8 large city tiles, so nothing too big (I'm no Blunder. .  :D). As for seeing the full scale, in due time. . . ;)

For now the last, non-region census rotation.  :)

I also need to expand residential areas and I'm also going to change a few things in the older tiles which haven't been changed for a year or more as there's so much great new content to use.

I believe (and somebody may correct me) it is because your using the RHW transport view. If you do not view a data view before saving (ie the pipes the view) it'll turn everything black. Using a dataview turns only the RHW black.

Actually, based on my experience, when one opens up the map with RHW/NAM on the map, the roads turn black when one does not view the transportation view before saving.  This does not happen when one has no roads or highways.  Rather aggravating indeed to have to view the Transportation view each time one opens up a map, but this appears to be an issue with the region view.  Oh well, not biggy, just open the transportation view and save immediately so your roads turn to white.

I have the impression that this works only if you are not in pause. So I got used to open the transport view (and the query as well, just to be sure) and let the simulation run for a couple of days...
