Thanks! its the result of using the sidewalk mod from Neko. although I find it rather too bright (and originally has blue light color) so I photoshop it a little bit.

Thanks! as my motto say, try not to make grid a.k.a anti grid style... well maybe except in the downtown area lol  ;D

Lovely night shots :thumbsup:

Nakahara 24.3: "Nightfall ~ Evening Stars" (Amakusa-cho, Akashima)

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/w4wVVa82x7o" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/w4wVVa82x7o</a>

Another day in Amakusa-cho (天草町), area in Nishi ward, Akashima. Its a rather windy day today as it almost entering fall season.

Area in central of Amakusa-cho

For people who want to find a rather easy access apartment and close to city center, Amakusa-cho might be one of a good choice as it located inside the loop line (Kogame Line) of Akashima.

Higashi-Amakusa Intersection in eastern Amakusa-cho

Although it might not be a good idea if you dont want a quiet neighborhood. This area almost lively 24/7, partially because the presence of Akashima Expressway Chuo Line in the south of this area.

Nevertheless, there are a lot of available housing this area, as there are a lot of large apartment here,

Central Amakusa-cho with dense residential area

Not forget to mention, this area close toward mass transit, where Imaizumi Station of Kogame Line located in the north of this area.

Northeastern Amakusa-cho bordering with Yatsuzawa-cho in east and Imaizumi-cho in north

Or else, Yatsuzawa-cho which located in east of Amakusa-cho is another good choice to live in inner city

Over the night, this area, especially near the Akashima Expressway is pretty much lively.

Offline kbieniu7

Night shots are indeed wonderful, they have their charm with those different light colours :)

I looked trough last several updates and I think I really like the density in those updates. Everything looks so packed-up. All highways and railways cutting trough the developement really show this (like Akashima Expressway in this update or similiar one in Nojiri-cho).
Thank you for visiting Kolbrów, and for being for last ten years!

Basically this update just to throw the whole pictures from update 24 which havent posted yet beforehand which has been

roting in my flickr folder for like 2 months.... So I dont really have any story or major description as in my previous

updates....

Replies:
Beautiful pictures as usual :)
Thank you!

So dense! Well done, as always :thumbsup:
Thanks... well as a typical asian major cities I have to say...

Its so hard to create a medium/ high dense area using a japanese style, and you did it very well ! Congratulations  &apls
yeah I have to admit its really really hard to make it especially for the residential areas which still lack of bats

(thats why I'm a little bit discouraged to done this theme lately). and I'm not sure I'm doing it well anyway but thanks!

Great updates!! &apls &apls &apls &apls &apls

Thank you! the light colours comes from the LRM which used by the Neko Japanese Street Side mod... I have to give credits

where this really give the details of the city.. and also I did a little bit of photoshop on it so it doesnt looks dunny

with the blue color...

Actually its still rather not completely same like in real life where the highway stacked above a main road (where here

just in side of road due to the sc4 limitation) but anyway I try to make it so not sure if it works or not...

Congratulations to entering the classics! Very well deserved :)
Thanks for the second reply I'm sure this really help adding activity to this long last MD lol...

Nice work on the breathtaking urban landscape, and welcome to classics!  :thumbsup:
Thanks!

The night views are sublime! I also like the images where we see the neighborhood from afar, it allows us to realize how urbanized it is. And as always, I love to see the sky train across the city, a simple but very beautiful detail! :thumbsup:

Sure you are doing it good !! I know that feeling, it is very repetitive, right ? But this is Japan my friend  $%Grinno$%

I recommend you try to build things like parks or small temples between all these areas, the result is always good but also you can make different things for a while  :thumbsup:

Great update as always, the night shots are magnificent  &apls &apls

Nakahara  25n: "Non Directional Art" (Mitsuya, Akashima)

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/KL-S2_5wFwc" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/KL-S2_5wFwc</a>

(quiet an intersting thing that the song above samples similar sound as one of sc4 mayor mode music)


As a mosaic of the Akashima city, the city grow since early 17th century when Suzumoto Clan rule the Hasaki Domain of the area.The city however suffer devasting of earthquakes and tsunami multiple times including the latest one in 2014.Akashima grow into major metropolitan area of Nakahara with rather non-planned chaotic pattern but managed to emerge as a well developed city in end of 20th century...

Shiraigawa (白井川町), Naka ward(中区) one of the densely developed area in central Akashima near the main downtown core of the city. As for the public transit access to the area, Akashima Subway Mitsuya Line built in 1983 to improve connectivity of the area.


The highway network of the city follow the pattern of the city development going through densely build area today.. Akashima Expressway Yumesaki route  (赤島高速5号夢崎線) serves the main road access toward the southern Yumesaki area of Akashima alongside with recently built Akashima Bay Bridge toward Arakawa city.


Akashima Expressway Yumesaki Route passing through densely build area in Mitsuya (美津谷町), Akashima



Mizuguchi Station (水口駅), one of the Station of Yumesaki Line (夢崎線) is crowded in the morning as usual day in Akashima. Mizuguchi Station located in Naka Ward, Akashima and it serves the area in northwest part of Yumesaki area of Akashima



Pararel toward the Akashima expressway Yumesaki Route, Yumesaki Line serves the Yumesaki Ward, the southern part of Akashima city located in Yumesaki peninsula.





Mitsuya (美津谷町) is a district located just in the west of Akashima Downtown core. One of the famous part of Mitsuya is the shopping area nearby Mitsuya Station where it can be intepreted as "Akihabara of Akashima" which mainly sold electronic stuff as well as many of the pop culture on Nakahara.




Part of Mitsuya is home to many offices and company around the city.as an example western part of Mitsuya host wall to wall offices building rows.


Mitsuya Station (美津谷駅), as the main station of the area, awkwardly located just below the Akashima Expressway Yumesaki Route serves the Tokaido Main Line alongside with the Akiya Line, and the Inner Loop Line of Akashima. A lot of people rushes for the transfer either toward the bus or the nearby Akashima Subway Mitsuya Line.


Akashima Expressway Chuo Line  (赤島高速3号中央線) passing through southern part of Mitsuya basically marking the border of Mitsuya and Shiraigawa in the south.


Into the night, the district is never sleep as the district host many entertainment area where many office worker in Akashima may spend night here before going home to hang with the co-worker or just to forgot the stress they got earlier during the worktime.

Thank you for viewing hope you enjoy it!

Yes, you should include some temples in the middle of everything. I'm curious about your region. Are you building your region in a real japanese map ?

In my case I feel obsessed about how the region looks, especially with some artificial islands... Japanese cities have a very own appearance and it's hard to imitate.

Seems i missed your update.

The elevated highways are very well done and fit nicely in the landscape!

Happy New Year!

This is so pretty! I really love the colorful night shots (is that a mod?). I love seeing Japan cities on here.

Reminds me how many Japanese buildings I don't have in my game yet.
