Wow, it looks great! The ski runs are a little on the short side, but that's okay (wonder when we'll see the really hard slopes? :P).


There's only one thing missing from the chair lifts, and that's the wires... shame SC4 won't let us have wires connecting them. (alternatively, there's always drawing them in)

Indeed, to the next. Waiting to see what you'll do next.

What a nice surprise!  &dance
Thank you very much for the dedication!

It's a real ski arena (as they call such places in Austria). The terrain is very good for skiing, there are many possible ways and there is a large place for beginners near the lower station :thumbsup:
The great thing for me is the diversity - I found not less than 3 different kinds of lifts here, all of them look very good.
Maybe it would be good to see some wires (as SA said), but in fact it is not necessary. When you look at the lift from bigger distance, you often don't see wires, especially on smaller lifts. All wires in SC4 often make troubles, both the default ones (on ingame power lines) and in other power lines sets (wooden SFBT poles, High tension custom poles). Wires look often too big on general views and sometimes it is even less realistic than poles without wires. In addition, it is possible to make poles with wires to use on slope, but only for the only one particular gradient - and terraforming would be extremely difficult in this case.
So we can see wires only on the biggest cable cars (I will send you links for "ropeway" and "ropeway winter", I must look for them).

Lights are a great addition, it's fantastic there are two kinds of them, I'm sure these lights on the transparent base will be very useful in many other situations! :thumbsup:

Don't worry about wild fauna, a single bear near the ski slope is a good motivation for downhill skiers to go even faster  :D
As for deers you can always ask David (dedgren) for the solution, he lives on Alaska and should have much experience with elks (moose) :D

All pictures are simply beautiful, fences look especially good in winter (they look as they would be partially covered by snow). And these skiers and standing people groups look fantastic! (skiers are a bit smaller, it seems children go downhill and parents are too lazy and they rather like to talk :D)

Thank you Badsim for such great pleasure!

No problem SA, look at it!



Walking across mountains near my hometown I often saw professional skiers training in summer with such equipment ;)
More seriously, people living in ski areas in Austria, France and other Alpine countries do a lot of things to attract tourists also in summer, many chairlifts and cablecars are open all the year, and there are many attractions prepared for this season - mountain bikes rental, climbing walls and many others :)
Sorry Badsim for this addition in your MD ;)

Super work.  I knew you would be able to come up with something excelent my friend.  I know that a few people have tried to make ski slpoes and I don't think had too much success, at least not like this.  I think you have done a fantastic job here and everything looks very well placed and very realistic.   I can't wait to see what is nest.

Super picture and great job with PS. The chalet looks exactly the same, great find. 
Roller skiing down a hill, that looks pretty scary.  And the guy is wearing shorts and no protective gear, wow he's got big onions..... ::)

This MD is in a class of its own, that much is obvious. Ive never seen anyone do the things you have with the game, and the ski mountain is just another challenge you have made look real easy. This is great stuff, the best MD of its time bar none.

Why am I always drooling over my keyboard when I visit Antigone?

Marvellous work Badsim. I see you are as skilled in working a la campagne as you are in the city.

Hehe... I don't know if "plastic film" would have been my prefered choice of "snow" filter. ;D

None the less: The ski resort looks fantastic. I used to like the tree controllers (I still do, but whatever... ;D) but now I see the huge advantages of customizing the forested areas in much more detail. And the number of lots contained in those pictures must be really big? Very minimalistic approach, with an overwhelming visual result. It's... great! &apls
