I'd like to show of my small island of King's Port,  this is not the entire city though it is less than half.  i would appreciate any critiques.  Also keep in mind, i LIKE to use trhe Maxis buildings and try to make a realistic downtown using those. (though it is hard)

Notables to point out:  Sportsplex (upper left corner); Boardwalk (center right)

I'm not really a big fan of grid based city-building (I tend to experiment with diagonals and orthogonals), but unsing only maxis stuff, you don't really have a choice (I personally think maxis should've included diagonals). I have to say though, it looks great considering you only used maxis stuff (altough you might've wanted to turn off the UDI icons ;)) But believe me when I tell  you that the stuff on the LEX/STEX is like a stairway to heaven for making realistic cities (have a look at some of the MD's).
Anyway, goodnight

Well, I have been slowly working on this one for a long time! Here are 2 from half of the city. I realize that it is bare in spots , but I'm slowly adding on.

And we put them together and get This (http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x262/sithlrd98/City_Mos.jpg)

Is this enough Ant-grid?

This is my city center. It looks somewhat better now, but I only have this old image. I used Chicago and New York tilesets only (plus some modern buildings growing in every sets)
I will build a new city center with modern buildings only.

Mr.Ag - love the city/suburban sprawl you have there! what is the land in the middle of the bridge used for if you don't mind my asking?

Here's my region...based loosely off Melbourne, Australia. (its so big i haven't even opened up all the tiles yet!)
(http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/gg79/maddog-esq/Melbourne/Melbourne-regionview050909.jpg)

And a transportview...
(http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/gg79/maddog-esq/Melbourne/Melbourne-transportview050909.jpg)

I use a massive amount of tram and rhw networks (ive coloured the rhw in red as it doesn't show in transportview) so with every nam, rhw or t-ram upgrade i'm loving it!

As you can see in the following picture, East Newport has evolved quite a bit since October 17th - some small changes have been made to the general traffic layout - and of course - the city has developed into a town home to 27k happy sims. However, the station hasn't been built yet - which is causing some traffic congestion in Simulator A Hard...

@ Emgmod:

Which tree controller are you using? It looks great!

I've started with Ivernessen region once too, but is was way to big for me. I didn't have the patience to finish it. I would love to see a region shot, if you once finish it. The region is magnificent.

I've started with Ivernessen region once too, but is was way to big for me. I didn't have the patience to finish it.

I've left far too many regions in the dust for this precise reason. It's far too common for me to take on a project far too large in scope and lose interest in it halfway through.

The tree controller that I'm using is this one (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1638). Also, the map name is slightly different from the town name.

I think that I can finish the region if the MD that showcases the region (http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=9188.0) is popular.

Here's the region i'm currently working on, with the Rossville metropolitan area being the main focus, with a short explanation of why my region is laid out this way.
Since I live here in the Midwest in the US, nearly all the towns are connected by rail.  This is why my region has random rail lines everywhere.  The larger towns are usually where their are multiple rail lines converge.

Though I'm not sure what age the urban planning is in the city you live in, but in modern planning the grid is shunned for its pro-vehicle, anti-neighborhood design. As such, the suburban sprawl in most cities build after the post-war boom tended to break off the grid and instead focussed on what is known as Contour roads, the cul-de-sac-neighborhood, and even more recently, the mixed-use-developement neighborhood. (We'll call it MUD for short)

http://www.region.durham.on.ca/departments/works/roads/TMPNov2005.pdf
Take a look at page 52 of the pdf (labelled as page 27 on the paper).

This shows the cul-de-sac neighborhood (top) and MUD neighborhood (bottom).

In terms of your city, what this means is that as you drive away from the core, the roads should start to break away and be less linear, with the exception of the really major roads.

An update on my city of King's Port,  I have a fairly old image back on page 1 of this thread.  As you can see it has gotten much bigger and I patiently grew several townhouse on the edge of downtown to give it more of a gradual transition from high rise to single family homes.  Keep in mind I LIKE THE MAXIS BUILDINGS!!! The building are pretty nice and they have consistency, as long as i don't have a dozen "Brink Real Estate" it's ok.  No joke, at one point I counted 13 of those pesky bastards.  As you can see I have minumize repition as best I could. (Among highrises at least) ;D  This only accounts for, i dno, maybe one quarter of the city though.

I am thinking of starting a new thread of some sort, where people will make a "Tourist Brochure" of their city.  They will include pictures of local hotspots, hotels, bars, restauraunts, beaches, landmark etc. and include a brief description, history lesson, bullshit story about it.  Think this is a good idea??????

This is an attempt to make a city that's both an autonomous town and a district of a bigger metropolis. The idea is to make cities act like cells that all together form a bigger body, without losing their individuality. Districts with their own personality, separating each other by small green belts, but working all together at the same time. Something like a hive mind, but without the loss of personality. Here is one of my cities.

My kind of region!
I aim for something like this but am yet to have the patience to quite pull it off.
I am yet to layout a modular, realistically sized airport for example (fear of additional menu clutter) - but seeing yours looking great there on the island is motivation (at least I assume it's an airport?).
Nice work.

(at least I assume it's an airport?).

Motivation?......Just start it. It took me almost 2 years to get to this point (on and off),  and I'm not finished yet at all, as you can see mostly on the oleft side of the region, where the Res is still under construction. I yet have to figure out how to find jobs for them without creating too much Ind and Com in the same area.
Here included you'll find a clickable full-sized version of the region, it will show more details and confirm that it IS an international airport.

EDIT:  About the plugin problem. There's way to make life a whole lot easier, I have been playing the game like this since 2005 and it works fantastically well, no matter what computer or how many files.
Example, this region above, I use about 17 Gb's of files without blocking the game, slowing it nor having problems finding the files in my chart. And it's not my biggest region, since I have a 12 million pop region where I use 27 Gb's without any problems of any kind. Yap 27 Gb's.
Can't believe it, well......you don't know how to play the game properly with all these files.
It will take a lot of preparation and organization though, might take a day or two to do so. But it will be worth it.

To well explain this will take a few hours (at least a day), which I don't have at the moment. But here is what I am ready to do. If I get enough demands until mid April to write a tutorial about this subject[/b][/color], I will gladly do so, incl pics and charts.
Wouldn't you like to play a regionwith 250,000 files+ with a normal computer like mine (2007 regular sized model and win xp), find all the files, at Rush Hour time with full details on (I don't use waves nor clouds though)???

I do. ;)

Howdy.

Like your region shot -- some great diversity.

I'm also very interested in how you can play with so many plugins: Would greatly appreciate it if you could assemble a tutorial.

Thanks.

Motivation?......Just start it.


Thanks Uncle Pete! (Don't worry, obscure reference).

Fair call Fred - I am in the process of a major overhaul of my plugins etc. for exactly that purpose; essentially I have started. However, it does feel a bit like deja vu - I have been at this stage on, shall we say, more than one occasion... It does help though to see what you and others have created - and I have gained fresh insight from reading stuff here and at ST. Plus I'm in a better and more stable place in my life and so that helps... ;)

Now I already knew you had a large plugin folder, but 27Gb in just insane!! I struggle with ~5Gb of plugins... Not so much with computing power, more the menus. When I recently played vanilla for half an hour it was a real joy to be able to move so freely through and around the menus, so different from my normal setup (but I could never go back to vanilla). DAMN hasn't worked for me, but I'm assuming you're not getting at that. The only way I can figure to do it, and something I had committed to trying recently, is to remove the lots from your plugin folder after you've built whatever it is (esp. for the big and seldom built areas like airports, golf courses etc). But clearly, based upon your estimate how long it would take to convey your approach, there must be more to it than this.

In short, any advice that minimises delay from gameplay, whether in loading times, or in menu scrolling or whatever else - is very much of interest.
It does sound like a mission though and if you can't do it as you would like, I would still appreciate the dot points.

Cheers,
Ryan.

P.S. plus there's that app, that I've never used, that automatically loads different plugins for different cities and/or regions - could that be involved? You have got me thinking... *walks away shaking head* "27Gb! Well I'll be damned..."

I started writing the tut yesterday, maybe I'll have it next week ready.
It is not the DAMN nor that automatic Pluginchanging system. It is based on what you use and when you use it, a simple way to enjoy the game better. I will get to this in details.

I am using this "Playstyle" since the Lot Editor came out, realizing that the Plugin folder one day be full and slow the gameplay.

It is a little difficult to create in the beginning, but once done, it doesn't seem to have a limit. I am adding new Lots almost every week.

EDIT: btw, where should I post my Tut about Plugins handling?

Well you've certainly got my attention - I look forward to seeing what you have to say.

It's good timing, I'm in between regions, maybe a chance to start afresh - I think I am going to attempt a recreation (of sorts) of my home city (Adelaide, Australia) and so will definitely be needing a different approach to previously.
