***   ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***  ***

Wellcome to my very first MD - Rainbow Falls. Rainbow Falls is "hand terraformed" region wich will develope as I go, meaning, that you shall be able to see the region/cities as they are right now. With updates I shall sometimes or often return to cities already presented to give them a chance to develope furthermore.

The mods that I am using are: CAM (for the very first time), NAM with its plugins, Italian Terrain Mod and in the cases of serious crysis a BSC Funding mod (usualy in the very first city in the region or when trying to figure out how to lay the transportation) and some others that change the lightning and edges and such things.

Before I realy start this MD I have to say thanks to all the creators who made all the wonderful things for SC4. You guys are great! Thank you!

And now, without further ado, I give you:


Rainbow Falls is land lost in space and time, some even say that it only exist in the dreams (may it be nightmare or those of sweeter nature).
And old legend says that long, long, long time ago strange beings  landed on the planet called Gaia. There they seen crude, uncivilized ape-people. After not much of discusion they decided to catch few of the creatures and take them back on their home planet Nah-rueh-ion. Soon after arrival the epidemy of Fluxenflexhickups totaly erased the entire population... but ape-people were imune and survived, left to wander and evolve in this new world.
There is no sigh left, that the natives of Nah-rueh-ion actualy realy existed BUT the some more open-minded scientist believe that their cities were woven with their immensive psyhical powers out of thin air. What is true and what is not we shall probably never learn... but who knows...

Rainbow Falls in most aspects resembles to what became of Gaia and the new race of Nahruehions that evolved from the simple ape-people strangly resembles to Erthlings. It is strange but true.


Before I show you the very first city of Rainbow Falls, I need to say that this regions political order is monarchy.

This is the Rainbow Falls crest:



I belive it is time to travel to:


Newhaven is the very first city that evolved in Rainbow Falls. Its founder is Merzibeth Ironfist, the queen herself.


There is not much to say about the city. It is at early stages of developetment with some dirty industry at the brink of the border wich is drasticaly polluting the enviroment. But the queen said that it shall not stay as such forever. Eventualy the dirty industry shall be driven out and replaced with agroculture with addition of some medium and high tech industry when the subjects stop being stupid as in stone age.

The most significant thing to see in this city is queens castle, but that shall be shown at the end. Lets first have a glimps on the city itself:






Here are some close-ups on Elementary school, Fire Department and Police station (in that order):




And now we can finaly move to the "candy" of this city, a castle:







I hope you enjoyed your firts and hopefuly not the last visit in Rainbow Falls.

Very nice start. The town and surrounding areas look nice. I like how you focused on the various civil services and the castle is exceptional. The level of detail you put into it really makes it look good. I'll look forward to seeing what else you will come up with.

You've presented some unique and interesting elements here, Lilojame. Very impressive overview, and the neighborhoods look great. I've never been a big fan of industry, but it's a necessity and you've done a good job of presenting it. The map is beautiful, and it will be a pleasure to watch as it develops. Love the region name, too! :)

Later...
Joan

Nice city, previous update looks good, but industrial area would be better if you'll make lots, "basiclly" zoning (I hope I wrote this understoodly :P) Teaser looks good. But what makes here the grid, huh?  :P

Rainbow Falls- UPDATE 01 (eye-candy)
« Reply #15 on: November 03, 2008, 08:51:54 AM »

Hi!
It is time for first update. Today we shall travel to the Trinity Falls, wich is located just east from Newhaven. But before the Rainbow Falls Airlines carry us there a word or two from our sponsors:

1st Personal Replays shall be done within the next teaser-time.
2nd Industry: yes and yes but keep in mind that the first city is in-fact THE first city build. It definetly lacks in diversity but well, it is my very first time that I am playing with CAM instaled.
:)

And now, it is time to travel!


Trinity Falls is not realy a city, it is more like a village. It is the second "city" that developed is Rainbow Falls wich now consist of two "cities" only for the time being.

People in Trinity Falls like the quiet life.

A night panorama:


A day panorama:




The Mine:


The Riding School is very popular family-gathering place on Sundays:


After a long yet blissful day spend watching and riding horses, familys like to go in Karins Restaurant:


There is not much crime in Trinity Falls but when a conflict arises the local police departement is imediatly deployed:


People in Trinity Falls are very proud on their Trinity Waterfall wich will probably become one of special turists-points in future:



There is only around 13 000 people living in Rainbow Falls at this time but the scientists say that they are on the brink of important discovery: The Cloning! Queen is doubtful about the process tho.

And now, dear visitor, it is time to leave Trinity Falls and see how the region of Rainbow Falls looks now:


Trinity Falls is not yet at its final developtement so we shall return to it in one of future updates.

Thank you very much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed your stay and that you shall travel to Rainbow Falls yet again!

Wow! Trinity Falls looks fantastic, Lilojame!

The village looks great, I love the riding school and how you've set everything up, and of course, the falls themselves are just stunning!

Keep up the great work here!
