Amazing pictures again! No one does waterfalls quite as well as you  :thumbsup:

The paramaribo houses look great...maybe you'll be tempted to release your own bats one day (hint hint  &idea)

mattb325: Thanks for the nice words, glad you're enjoying the waterfalls :thumbsup:

Alot of the custom BATs I've been working are still in a WIP state and haven't been properly modded yet etc - but if I find some free time down the road I might try to pack some of it together into some sort of prop pack, so we'll see :)

Great pictures as always! And deforestation is an important and very tragic topic. The scale of the depletion of our nature is horrifying.

You will think that I do not know anything else that "it's beautiful" ... But it's true, there is nothing else to say when seeing your images, they are beautiful! :D Always full of details and so realistic, but I think the first image is part of my favorite of all your updates! It's just crazy, the level of detail and houses on the water. You sell dreams! Congratulations! :popcorn:

- UPDATE 94: Industrial Scenes (Preview) -


For our next two updates, we're taking a look at a wide variety of industrial scenes from across the globe. From heavy industrial zones, seaports, refineries, warehouse districts, mining projects and much more - it's going to be quite the showcase. There's going to be two separate updates, so stay tuned - but in the meantime, here's a preview of what I have in store.

Also, I want to give a special thanks to Simmer2 for all the fantastic lots and models used in this update :thumbsup:


Abandoned factories and train depots in Czestochowa, Poland.





A view of a rusted and run down oil refinery in rural Albania.





Small refinery and oil pipelines crossing the Canadian Arctic.





Oil refineries in northern Alberta, Canada.





A view of the many warehouses and factories that line the Los Angeles River.





Heavy industry in Norilsk, Russia.





Abandoned seaports like this one in Aral'sk, Kazakhstan can be found on the shores of the disappearing Aral Sea.

Wow, completely WOW &apls

It is so disappointing to see what man has done to mother earth with rusting and abandoned metal polluting the land.  It truly is such an embarrassing and disgusting reality of everything we take for granted and thankful for not realizing the devastating damage we all are doing to mother earth. 

God bless this earth we all live in.

- UPDATE 95: Industrial Scenes - Part I -





Today, our tour of the world's industrial areas begins with a look at a number of refineries, seaports, train yards, and more. We'll begin in East Chicago, Indiana - where heavy industrial areas can be found along the shores of Lake Michigan.





A scene from Czestochowa, Poland - where abandoned factories and train depots surround the city's rail lines.





Railway roundhouse and train yard in the Midwestern U.S.





A view of a rusted and run down oil refinery in rural Albania, located on the Patos-Marinza heavy oil field.





Nighttime view of an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia.





Small refinery and oil pipelines crossing the Canadian Arctic.





Refineries, factories, and a maze of pipelines stretch on for as far as the eye can see in Fort McMurray, Alberta.





Pump jacks and oil refineries in rural California.





A look at the massive, colorfully painted cooling towers of Johannesburg's Orlando Power Station.





Located in Australia's Outback, the Kalgoorlie Super Pit was the world's largest open cut gold mine for many years.





A view of Fisher Body Plant 21 - a long abandoned automobile factory in Detroit, Michigan.





We're traveling back in time for the next scene - to 1930's Chicago, where the city's meatpacking district and rail yards made it one of the country's most important industrial centers.





Seaports, factories, and refineries line the shores of Pig's Eye Lake - located just outside St. Paul, Minnesota on the Mississippi River.








A snowy day in the mining town of Norilsk, Russia.

Korver,

Would love to see some credit due to the U.S. for the Bingham Kinney Kit Cooper mine in the mountains of West Utah.  Still yet to be the largest open pit mine for Copper digging deeper into the mountain range.  Man as literally displaced an entire Mountain else-where.

- UPDATE 96: Industrial Scenes - Part II -





The industrial scenes conclude today with a wide variety of pictures from across the globe - and we'll begin the tour in Aral'sk, Kazakhstan. Due to the Aral Sea drying up, the seaport and nearby factories have been abandoned for decades - although with talks of a new dam, things could change around in the near future.





A few views from Rotterdam, The Netherlands - home to one of the world's largest seaports.








A smoggy, hot day at the Port of Toronto.





Solar farms in the Western U.S.





Wind farms in rural California.





A rainy day in Maracaibo, Venezuela - home to some of the world's largest oil pump jack fields.





A look at the Swan Mill Power Plant (Svanemølleværket), located in an industrial area in Copenhagen, Denmark.





A smoggy day in Johannesburg, South Africa - where the famous Nelson Mandela Bridge crosses a heavily industrial area filled with factories and railyards.





A scene a 1940's Chicago - where meat packing warehouses line the Chicago River.





A few more scenes from Norilsk, Russia - where pollution from the nearby nickel smelting factories have turned it into one of the world's most polluted cities.








Heavy industry on Zug Island, located in Detroit, Michigan.





A look at the areas surrounding the Los Angeles River - filled with warehouses for as far as the eye can see.

dyoungyn: Thanks for the comment! I've actually done a little research on the Bingham Kinney Kit Cooper mine before when I was studying scenes for the Western U.S. update and I might give it a go in the future. There's still some more scenes from the Western U.S. I want to do (and maybe another Industrial update) down the road, so we'll see ;)

- UPDATE 97: Sights From Sydney - Part I -





Over the last couple of weeks, I've been quietly putting the finishing touches on my Sydney Harbour recreation - and now with the tile just about complete, it's time for another look at the Harbour City. I'll be splitting the tour into two parts - and for the first part today we'll be taking a look at some scenes from the CBD, Royal Botanic Garden, and more. No trip to Sydney is complete however without a visit to the world famous Sydney Opera House - so that's where we'll begin our journey. Enjoy!





A few overviews of the CBD:











A few of the city's most distinctive skyscrapers - Australia Square, Deutsche Bank Place, & 1 O'Connell Street.











A closeup view of Sydney's impressive MLC Centre. Standing 748 feet tall, it was the tallest building in the city from 1977-1992.









A number of assorted scenes from in and around Sydney's world famous CBD.























Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden is one of the world's most impressive urban parks and has been a popular destination in the city since opening back in 1816.














Sydney truly comes alive at nighttime.





























Finally, a couple overviews of Sydney and it's famous harbour.

Even better then the first time.  I have been to Sydney four separate times while in the U.S. Navy and always moored at the Ausy Navy Port on the other side of the park.  Your details are spot on, GREAT job.
