Hello, friends.

I'd just like to stop in and say that life has been quite the buzzsaw, lately. I've been working almost non-stop, only having three days off since February 10. Needless to say, Marathon has only been in my thoughts lately, not in the game or here at SC4D, unfortunately. I am never short of ideas or inspiration, but always short on time!

So, I just wanted to let all of you here know that, while I may not always be around, I'm always thinking about you guys here, and will keep things rolling here as much as life allows! In the meantime, here's...



...a little neighborhood shot that popped up on my hard drive.

I hope all of you are doing well; please stop in and let me know how you are doing!

Oh! Great to see an update here!
Hope you'll find time sooner or later for Simcity. Also, I hope your work doesn't treat you badly.

The picture you've shown us is great, Dustin! Both the Library and the small office building fits greatly in this neighbourhood which is in fact very nice.

Take care!

Hello, all!

Well, I think I may have stumbled onto what was supposed to be an update of some sorts, but...I don't remember what the theme was supposed to be! Perhaps it was a follow-up to our most recent (if you can use that word) update, UPDATE LV: 352¼!? (Or, Introducing Telegraph Park), but I really cannot remember, unfortunately.

But, theme or update or what have you, I'll share them nonetheless! Here's more of the area in and surrounding Telegraph Park—

















I'll refrain from any more empty promises of "more to come," or "things on the horizon"—for now, I'll just say that I miss you all very much and I hope you enjoy!

Time between updates doesn't seem to have dulled your skill, or my enjoyment of what I'm seeing. Good to see you around more Dustin, and nice update.

Fantastic work again  &apls  The way you lot and create these great plazas and city spaces is really an inspiration. It'd be great to see a little RHW in the area....

Looking forward to more  :thumbsup:

Nice to see an update here, in one of my favorite MD, Dustin!

Very nice pictures of that area around telegraph park. All the buildings you choose fit well together, and you did a good job with the plazas.

Looking forward to more, no matter how long it will take. ;)

The update, no matter the theme, was great!  It's always nice to hear from you and see what you are up to.
Don't forget to rotate your trees when making your LOTs. ;)
Hope to see more from you real soon.

Great to see any kind of update here - they're always of the best quality.

That monorail station sits perfectly right next to the midrise.

Cheers

Yay!!! An update of some sort!!!  :D
I love how Telegraph Park looks and the contrast between the new york or chicago building on the back and new the modern highrises near the stadium. And the highways and avenues look great too. Just a perfect mixture  :)

The modern cube-shaped building with the round windows is stunning (and looks perfect in your setting). Is it a bat based on a real-world building?

Yes, yes, yes! I know.

But I am sure I want to reply, in part because I just spent the better part of two days going through all 141 pages of this spectacular, award-winning Mayor's Diary, but also because I wanted to - yet again - convey what an inspiration its pages and pages of content, tips, tricks, tutorials and showcases have been, and continue to be.

Please don't forget about us, your fans, or the people of Marathon  ;D

I hope all is well old friend!  :)
