I think we can easily say that your industrial scenes are by far the most perfectly reproduced in Sim City! No competitor, really.  ;)
As for Sydney, I am fascinated as much by your attention to detail in parks, including this very fine work with MMPs to reproduce the landscaping of vegetation, the slight deterioration of turf on the edge of the aphalt or the behavior of walkers on the paths and lawns, and by your aerial views which are incredibly realistic!  :o
Someone who is not used to your perfect mastery of the game, might think that it is a photo or an artistic drawing as the constraints of the game seem to evaporate when you create.
I do not get tired of your magic! Thank you for the show. :thumbsup:

- UPDATE 98: Sights From Sydney - Part II -





Our trip to Sydney concludes today with a wide variety of scenes from the CBD, Royal Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay, Lavender Bay, and much more. We'll begin with a few more views of Sydney's impressive downtown - enjoy!








A rainy day at the iconic Sydney Tower - the Southern Hemisphere's second tallest observation tower.





A number of scenes from around Sydney's iconic harbour and Circular Quay:


























Lavender Bay can be found north of the city's CBD and is one its wealthiest and most livable suburbs.














Sydney's beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens are truly an urban oasis - and make for a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.











A couple more scenes from the CBD and around the city's Botanic Gardens:

















A few mosaics of Sydney's impressive skyline and harbour - with a look at the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge as well.











And finally, a few more overviews and panoramas of Sydney in all its glory:

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!  Brings back memories of the time when I was in the U.S. Navy making a port visit and marching in a parade downtown for military week.  Truly a memorable moment.  I can just see where the route could have been in your detail job of glorious Sydney.  Would love to see some of the Navy Pier and the luxurious "Pots Point" and up the hill down "Macley St". Along this street is some very nice little hotels here and there and with the tree lined route really reminds me the U.S. only in Australia.

- UPDATE 99: Midwest U.S. (Preview) -


For our next update, we're returning to the United States to take a look at a number of scenes from the Midwest. From picturesque farmland, heavy industrial areas, famous landmarks, iconic skylines, and more - there's plenty to see and experience here, so we'll be taking an in depth look at the region. The update will include a scene from each and every Midwestern state - there's still a few more scenes I need to finish up though, so in the meantime here's a preview of what's to come:


Quaint family farms - a common sight just about everywhere you look in the Midwestern U.S.





Much of the Midwest U.S. is an endless plain of farms and fields - and from the air you can truly grasp the scale.





We'll see a few of the region's most impressive landmarks as well, like iconic Mount Rushmore.





We'll be taking a look at a number of Midwestern industrial areas as well - like the heavy industrial regions that surround Lake Michigan and more.





There will be plenty of cities included as well - with scenes from Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, and Minneapolis - and even some scenes from the tiny Midwestern capital city of Pierre, South Dakota.

dyoungyn: Appreciate the kind comment - I'm glad the update was able to bring back some memories of the city :) I'm not sure yet if I'm going to expand the recreation even further, but if I do - I'll take a look at recreating a few of the other places you mentioned as well :)

Great job.  Keep going West to the Mountain States of Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah.  Utah does indeed have the greatest National Parks that are absolutely beautiful that man is slowly ruining by vandalism.  Denver is truly the largest city in the mountain states.

Hi korver!

Geeez, Man, your Sydney recreation is amazing, specially the harbour part. So many unfamiliar buildings. Those piers on picture 4, 7 and 9 (same as 4 just day time), what are those? I mean for example I know that boat piers are NBVC marina, but what are main buildings? And yepp, last image is just simply breath taking...  &apls &apls &apls

Midwest U.S.
Harbour scene is really nice here as well, and the Zoom out on the last picture too!  &apls Awesome work!

- True Earth: The 100th Update -

After two and a half years - True Earth has finally reached its 100th update. :bnn:

To celebrate the occasion, we're taking a look back at some of my finest pictures in one massive mosaic. From sprawling cities, stunning natural wonders, charming villages, iconic landmarks, and so much more - we've traveled to so many incredible places from across the globe these last couple of years, and there's still so much more to come.

Thanks once again to everyone for your support and encouragement over the years :thumbsup:




Note: due to compression issues I had to upload this mosaic to Dropbox - if you can't see the link then I also uploaded the more compressed version to imgur as well here.

Tyberius06: Thank you very much for the comment! The piers were mainly constructed with pieces from the Stanley Seawalls set on the STEX, some of NBVC's various pieces, and some airport teminal pieces from one of the ACE packs on Simtropolis.

Congrats on 100 updates Korver!  This mosaic is a fitting update, as it illustrates just why you've made it this far.  You've shown us some of the most breathtaking SC4 scenery out there, with the realism that a real-world-based MD requires.  I'm looking forward to the next 100, for sure.  Amazing work!

- UPDATE 101: Midwest U.S. -





Today, we're taking a trip near the center of the United States - a region also known as the Midwest U.S. Although much of the land here is flat farmland - there's more than meets the eye, and the region is home to come of the country's finest cities, landmarks, natural wonders, and more. We'll be taking a look at each and every state in the region - and we'll begin in North Dakota. As with the rest of the Midwest U.S. - small family farms are a common sight here just about everywhere you look.





Our next stop is South Dakota, where we'll visit one of the region's most famous landmarks - iconic Mount Rushmore. This symbolic monument was constructed in the 1930s and features four of America's most famous presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.





A few hundred miles east is South Dakota's capital city of Pierre. This tiny city may only have 13,646 residents - but it more than makes up for it with charming old streets and picturesque views of the Missouri River. The South Dakota State Capitol building is located in the heart of Pierre and can be seen from all around.





Small shops and businesses line the streets of the town's center.





A view of the semi-rural areas just outside the center of town.





A look at some of the rail yards and small industrial districts that can be found just east of the city's center.





Finally, an aerial view of the city and the nearby Missouri River.





We travel east into Minnesota and visit its largest city, Minneapolis. The city's skyline is one the region's finest and is quite stunning at nighttime.





From there, we travel northwest into the neighboring state of Wisconsin. With beautiful fall foliage and picturesque waterfalls scattered around the area, it's one of the region's best kept secrets.





Southwest of Wisconsin is our next stop - rural Iowa. Grain silos are a common sight here and across the rest of the Midwest, towering over the flat farmland.





The Midwest has a rich history as well - some 200 years ago, the Oregon Trail crossed Nebraska's countryside and was a vital route for traders and fur trappers.





South of Nebraska is our next destination, Kansas - where it's nothing but farmland for as far as the eye can see. The entire Midwest is often collectively known as America's breadbasket - and the entire country depends on these harvests.





We travel into Missouri to visit one of the region's most important cities - St. Louis. Its iconic Gateway Arch is one of the Midwest's most famous landmarks.





Located in southern Ohio, Cincinnati is another one of the region's largest cities - and is home to a number of iconic Art Deco skyscrapers like the 574 foot tall Carew Tower.





We travel into southern Michigan and make a brief stop in Detroit - the Motor City. Best known as the center of the U.S. car industry for a century, it's one of the region's most important cities and boasts an impressive skyline as well.





From there, we venture to the shores around Lake Michigan for the last leg of our journey. The endless farmlands are replaced with a sea of heavy industry in many places - like in East Chicago, Indiana - home to one of the Midwest's largest industrial zones.





The tour finishes up in Illinois with an aerial view of the region's largest city - Chicago, better known as the "Windy City".

Excellent update  &apls &apls

Being from South Dakota, born in Nebraska, growing up with Minneapolis as the closest big city, and later living in Wisconsin and Chicago this update hits quite close to home and is certainly something I'd never have expected, not least from someone with your talent. Very cool to see. I'll tell you that your Pierre looks a good bit better than the real one :D
