Hmmm. This update includes my favorite church, beautiful canals, a perfect collection of bats organized brilliantly, nice tramlines, great lotting, and a fantastic pack of boats I'm dying to get my hands on. I'd say that's a pretty good update  :D

Good luck in the picture competition buddy, though I'm afraid that I'm the one that needs it  ;)


Beautiful work, just beautiful!  &apls

I'll check if reality fits you images next week!


Delightful! You make it seem so real! And so awesome! :D :D :D
See the all-new National Capital Region!:http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=15118.0



# Update [1]  ~ Arriving at the prefecture - Saitama ||

• After a long trip in airplane from Europe finally we are here, Japan is an amazing country, look this train it's very fast !! and look the sights of this beautiful rural landscape...I cannot believe I'm finally in Japan, I cannot wait to get Saitama, I'm very happy, I have many new sites that meet in this beautiful prefecture •

• Right now we are crossing the small town called Ajima, this is a rural town dedicated to agriculture, in this town there is also a lake where fishermen can work with the fishes

• In this town the buildings are old style, almost everything in this small town is old, although the Shinkansen brings a new modernity to the area. This Shinkansen line was built seven years ago and and connects Saitama with Hiroshima and Osaka •

The prefecture is very long and we are still far from Central Station in Saitama, I will continue to enjoy this beautiful landscape... •

Riding on the Shinkansen must be an impressive experience. I am wondering, have you ever been to Japan or are you building all this from your imagination?

# Update [2]  ~ Ajima - Saitama Prefecture ||

• We are arriving to Ajima, Ajima is a small town located between the mountains and sea and it is 40 minutes in train from the Saitama central station. Ajima is a rural town dedicated to the agriculture and fishing. Ajima has 4457 inhabitants and somedays Some tourists visit this place to meet the more rural japan

Ajima is connected by a regional train with the rest of the prefecture, the shinkansen also passes through here but this has no station in Ajima •

• Almost all in Ajima is old, just exist a few modern buildings in this town, all this buildings are located near of the train station, This is the center of the town •

• The city is surrounded for rice fields, the rice is the most important thing in Ajima and the most important work for the inhabitants •

• In Ajima there are some industrial buildings dedicated to rice production, in buildings like this the rice is packaged...•

• ...Trains are responsible for carrying rice, trains go to the port and the center of Saitama •

• This residential building is the tallest building in Ajima, located in front of the road that connects Ajima with the highways of the prefecture, this building is one of the first buildings that the people see when arrive to Ajima •

• In Japan exist a lot of places like this, but all these small towns has their special touch, Ajima has their rice fields and their old houses and it is a good place to meet in Saitama •

• Today we leave Ajima in this train but another day we will come back here and see more about this great place •

As always, Jonathan. I am speechless of your works. You are a truly master. Your Japanese city has always inspired me. And this time again I got some nice ideas, such as the gravel paths between the houses, very ingenious. ;)

The train skin you used suits perfectly this town. I would have just made the train station a little bit longer, but I guess it's al-right. :)

Kelis, I must comment...just...WOW!  I'm speechless.  :o

You have an eye for detail, as your cities are always so well done.  You must also have an amazing amount of patience to be able to take the time to make your cities so realistic.

Extremely well done.  &apls


Love the new direction - you're just as talented in the Japanese style as the European.

Well done - you're number one on BTT again this week.
