Cities of the world that influence SC4
« on: September 05, 2010, 02:32:14 AM »
im keen to gather data from all community members of which cities around the world that influence SC4 more than all others. when i mean influence, i mean in terms of content, and CJ/MD styles we commonly see.

so far i have come up with this shortlist, but looking for others:
Hong Kong                   - thanks to HKABT's great work
Paris                           - some of the first W2W sets ever made
New York                     - Home of the grid, the skyscraper, and brown brick terraces
London                        - i think mainly for transport, and historical buildings
Amsterdam                   - Haarlemmergold and Vanderaap's works, and a notable home of Canals.
Tokyo
Warsaw

other notable influences:
Mediterranean Rural
American Rural


IMO when it comes to community members MD's, there are generally only about a dozen different types of region/city being built, but for the sake of overall influences, im eager to see what ppl think is the top 10 Real world influences of our game.

thanks,

jigsaw

Well, add Amsterdam to the list. I see quite a lot of MD's with canals and typical Dutch buildings. Myself use beside a lot of Parisian Buildings and the standard American buildings a lot of Dutch buildings.

I think you'd need to include Tokyo, which is the counterpart of Hong Kong in defining people's perception of the hyper-dense Asian city and also inspires the huge appetite within the SC4 community for Japanese content.  The shinkansen is also the definitive model for high-speed rail in the game.

I'll also add Warsaw, which has a lot of W2W and other buildings batted, as well as polish cities. They all are used in polish, and also eastern european MDs  ;)

Well, i guess that gray, depressing soviet style is quite popular too, there are few CJs/MDs about it, and many buildings also exist.
Has it really been almost 2 years?
Must return. :)

theres a fair number of baltimore and D.C. BAT's, and i use its influences a lot, probably because thats where I live.  and all the baltimore BATs seem to be by marcszar so maybe he just likes the city :)

I think to the 'rural' sublist you could also include Middle Eastern.
