Edit: Hmmm... did I just hit that "00"-number. That NEVER happens to me.  ;D

Nice to see this much progress. Can't wait for those quads to start developing, David!

This is very very cool and quite interesting.

Custom interchanges arent really my thing. They just arent real enough for me. However. There is also a trade off when getting the carbon copy interchange each time you use the Maxis ones.

Hey look! emilin got a dubble-oh!

David,

Congrats to emilin for hitting the "00" and thanks for noticing the mis-assignment (my spell checker claims that isn't a real word, much like BATing or Modding).

I'm itching for more 3RR-so many updates in the past few days have me really fired up about playing SC4!

Cheers,
Kevin

Table of Contents - Page 71 through current 7-15-07 - current

n.b.Please note that if you have you have checked the "Show most recent posts at the top." selection in your member profile, the pages in this TOC won't line up with the pages you view.

...that's because you are viewing them backwards!

Aside from this somewhat disconcerting situation, the remainder of the TOC links work just fine.

 
Each of the page numbers and individual posts is hotlinked, and clicking on one of these will take you there in a new window.  Since 3RR pages tend to be pic heavy, you should give your browser a little bit of time to load them and settle down at the top of the post.  Once there, you can resize the new window to your liking.  3RR's current page is noted by the emergency flasher pic.

After each page number, I have noted the dates of the first and last comment on the page.  After each post heading, I have noted the date the post was originally made.  If a content update has been made to a post, the word "MORE!" will appear highlighted in yellow followed by the date of the update.

The members who've commented on a particular page are listed, with folks who left more than one comment on the page noted with "(x2)," "(x3)" and so on.  "First timers" appear in red.

Yes, it does appear our old friend Emil (emilin) has hit that coveted "00" mark this time around.  I can't imagine we won't find something suitable to note that with over the next little bit.

* * *

Well, last night I goofed.  Got Kevin's (BigSlark) and Travis's quads mixed up.  In that my 3RR file system is limited to whatever I can pile on my desk (sometimes I have to make a path so I can see the monitor), it had to happen sooner or later.  I now owe both of you guys big time- we'll sort it out, I'm sure.

Travis, here is in fact your quad...

...checking one last time- yes, yes...



Here's an overview pic.



High-SW, the home of the city of South Shore, Pine Point Regional Park, the Pratt Island ferry terminal, and a long stretch of the very scenic Des Plaines Spur railroad line.



Click here [linkie] for the full-size mosaic.  I don't do them very often, but the spur line just called out for that treatment.

Here's the basic quad, Travis.



Central South Shore will go in the flattish area to the east of Sideling Hill.  Additional 'burbs will be pretty much everywhere- don't build in the flood plain of the creek, though, without insurance.  Plenty of room for those box stores, though.

Sorry again about the mix-up.

* * *

I'm flying to Texas tonight for an overnighter in Midland- bringing my boy Tristen back to Alaska.  Next update's probably Tuesday or Wednesday.

Later.


David

That will be an interesting quad to develop, David. I see a good spot for some commercial between the freeway and the road, and the creekbed
and the shore will both make for nice parks. Once again, I'm eager to get started.  :thumbsup:

I just had an odd moment, I clicked on that mic-mansion link of yours, and the picture in the upper right is actually a picture of a friend's house under construction :P Either that or its the exact same design, region, climate, time of year.

I love the mosaic. Good choice of subject matter.

As always an enjoyable visit, love maps and your topo maps are very good, just read through your tutorial some pages back, and I will surley try out some of your techniques from that one.

Looks like we will see some cities develop shortly, something I really look forward to.

Quad 188 looks quite pleasant, David! I love the use of the NAM rail curves, especially how it goes seamless into the bridge in the second picture. I'm going to peruse the Gazetteer, and I'll be looking forward to what you have in store for this weekend!

those rail curves really look good. Its odd, besides this I havent really seen them in cj's. odd because they are in no way difficult to work with.

The river thing is interesting. To me though, the biggest irritating thing about building rivers and also lakes in the game is the shores. They always seem really steep. Obviously most rivers have steep bluffs in real life, but at the same time sometimes its a bit much looking in the sc4 perspective at least if you are trying to build a stream or lake in a flat area.

Anyways, I havent been in here in a while. But im still interested in doing the collaboration once that gets going

Hi David, it’s been quite a while… Anyway, I have been checking in here at least once a fortnight and everything looks amazing! I love the maps you have been producing and the overall form of the terrain (life-like!). Also, the way the transport is coming together is great (transport enthusiast…). Anyway, I really enjoy coming here and viewing your wonderful work. Keep it up!
