Welcome back to the MD world, Manuel my friend ! Bon retour ici !  :D

I like very much what you're doing here. With first, an awesome start, but also, on the city you've shown there. Also the region you choose to develop on is very nice, and will fit perfectly with the general ambiance of the cities. But, is your region American styled or more European ?
The mix of modern skyscrapers and old art-deco styled building is really well done. The plazas around the city are well modeled and make the city good looking, and, make the city more alive and pleasant. Look like a city where we want to live in !
Take care,
-Arthur.  :thumbsup:

Yan077: Thanks, I've been near Bassin d'Arcachon once some years ago, and it's a beautiful region. Funnily you can use this great map also as a map with metropolitan area. :)
art128: Thanks my friend. :) Arlington Bay is pretty much american style, but as you can see, they got a better taste in the street-texture. ;) :D

Very nice work on your MD, Arlington is looking like a very densely populated city, also nice to have the map as a reference as a starter.
