Bbqlol, wow!  $%Grinno$%  The laughter I suffered over that caption was almost unbearable.

Thanks and love the ideas everyone  :thumbsup:

Bringing them together we have:

Camping in the Wild, a bit too wild...Mandelsoft

I don't have to be faster than the bears... just faster than you!     Diggis


We'll have to figure out a fun way to resolve the competition--which for now remains open  :thumbsup:


In the mean time I wanted to show that NORO experiences more seasons than just summer and fall  :satisfied:

With all those beautiful pictures, why I should buy the new Simcity? $%Grinno$%

As about the caption, let me use a phrase we use often here in Greece. The phrase is "cliff in front of us and stream behind us" (μπρος γκρεμός και πίσω ρέμα) and we use it to describe situations in which we are stuck in 2 equally bad situations. So we can make the caption as "cliff in front of us and bears behind us" (μπρος γκρεμός και πίσω αρκούδες) ;D

You may have been wondering, is this guy involved again? Why, he's everywhere! Sorry for that; anyway don't worry - I have to behave because Robin's watching ;D

But I did do some tricks here and there, including looking over Vortext's tree controller. I love it. It's one of the best things you can download off the LEX - and there's quite a bit on there. We picked the Coast Extended controller because it gives a nice, full brush all over the place. We like trees. (Uh, right guys?)

That doesn't mean I agree with the flora selection. (You know me :D)  I tweaked it a little to get some more Girafe material on the shore, not that it's perfect now, but. . . well you be the judge. The following pics are made with the tree controller only. No MMPing whatsoever involved. Overall this took me only a couple minutes to do.

There used to be PEG weeds in place of the bushes and cattails here. Not like very much. I probably messed up the clustering, but shorelines usually need some MMP detail anyway.

For anyone who has not already checked out vortext's new tree controller, should!  Best tree controller ever!
Great job Willy on the tweaking.  I would like to see some more dead trees in there, but maybe those can just be MMP'd afterwards.

Thanks for the kind words Willy and Robin! Glad to hear and see you guys are enjoying them! 

And Joan, that's right, no mmps! In fact, that's the very reason I made them. Seasonal flora is wonderfull but the manual labor involved to get something resembling a forest, erm yeah, not so much. Not to mention the time it takes. So instead I spend a ridiculous amount of time tweaking controllers . .  ::)  :D

Anyhow, I wonder when we get to see the first glimpses of civilization around here! Camping is fun but surely, one has to return home some time, right?!  ;)

Just to prove we are still playing.  Actually we are all playing now.....all four of us in different parts of the region.  We have no major issues with Google Drive so far.  Everything is going according to plan and we are doing a lot of planning in the background.

Still outside my comfort zone but even I am please with my own work this time.

Nice work there, Robin. :thumbsup:

It looks great, maybe a little more Pampas Grass in the Cattails and vise versa would make it look even better. ;)

Stay out of your comfort zone. :D

Thanks a lot, I'll give that a try.  I am new at this. ;) - Robin

Looks good to me, Robin. Maybe you should start making scenes like this your new comfort zone.


Thanks Joan.  You think I should make this my new comfort zone?  I may try a mix of my old and new zones.  ;) - Robin
