Quote from: juliok102013 on January 08, 2017, 12:40:22 PMYour projects are very good. The last two photos were fantastic, congratulations!If you'll excuse me, how did you manage to prevent the sand from appearing on your shore?
Quote from: noahclem on October 21, 2016, 08:30:04 AMLovely picture While I can sympathize with you losing some enthusiasm for your project I'm certainly ready for plenty more of AErden--what you've done here is both unique and startlingly impressive.Going the flora route with the T21s is an interesting call but if it allows you to accomplish what you're after better than I'm sure it's the way to go and I'm certainly not qualified to second guess you in these kinds of areas As for the picture competition, I think there's been a consensus that some change is needed for a long time but I'm still not sure what that could be. If one thread is struggling to stay active then two threads could very well make the problem worse. To be honest almost all my pictures in that thread have been 'shopped but usually it's only for traffic, etc. Dividing that from more drastic changes could be a bit tricky. My thought is that the best way forward (though there could be multiple, simultaneous ways forward too) would be making voting more accessible: being able to do so with a click versus a post should drive voting up and I've been thinking for a while that having it somehow as part of the front page would be awesome (maybe hover over each picture to see full size and have an option to click for one's favorite without leaving the page). Changes in how to qualify for HoF could help as well. We could set a percentage of winners that should get HoF status and put them to a later vote, for example. We could even try to do something like that this November for the birthday month....

Quote from: APSMS on October 22, 2016, 03:57:54 PMQuote from: feyss on October 03, 2016, 07:24:56 AMYour work looks like an entire new SC4 add-on. You've got reat modding skills One question though, I'm a little bit curious: Are your towns functionals or 100% eye-candy ?Vortext and Simcoug (of New Sorgun fame) share an affinity for fully functional cities. It's a level of dedication far beyond my commitment to the game, but seeing their stuff always makes me want to try (until I actually do, and then I realize that I might do my desk (and head) a favor if I don't ).As re: the Picture Competition, It would be interesting to leave the current one as is, and then use a second competition for only functional, unedited city pictures. So anyone could compete, but no Photoshop, no eye-candy only scenes, and no mosaics (?). This would still give a degree of freedom for experienced players, as well as encourage newer players with no photoshop or MMP skills. I'm not sure this would alleviate the primary problem, but short of having a Vanilla only competition (which would get attention from all of 2 players) and a beginners-only thread (what defines a beginner), I think this would be the only feasible way to open up the thread to less intense/perfection oriented players.Personally I do almost no photoediting to my pictures, and it would be nice to have a place where only your skill as a city builder was challenged, rather than your Photoshop skills (which, I have to admit, in korver's place seem to be phenomenal). Obviously attention to detail is still key, but we don't really have the user base to set up dedicated challenges like ST, and even ST has problems sometimes with participation, nor do I think it's ideal to set up something highly regulated (like a monthly contest). I like the idea of a prolonged voting period, but I'm not sure we have the manpower or userbase to set up something that structured.

Quote from: kbieniu7 on October 23, 2016, 05:27:45 AMHah, that's almost the same photo. It's just turned 90 degrees and in autumn colours, who you want to trick? You'll make as you wish with your mod. Good luck! A propos de picture competition. Maybe, it would be a good idea to set the border between in-game and photoshop- and other-external-help-allowing photos. However, lack of MMPs seems for me to be a little bit too far limitation.
Quote from: kelis on October 27, 2016, 03:43:30 AMLove it !! Still in love with those diagonals Perhaps a bigger square in front of that little church could be a good addition
Quote from: kbieniu7 on November 01, 2016, 10:01:52 AMWhy you don't want to bother with Polish? When, we've just shared a medieval town gate from Kraków that, I believe, would perfectly fit into your grandiose capital http://www.simcitypolska.pl/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=492Just joking, I know the English language enough, I know what the second meaning of "polish" is ;PWhen I looked at the first and second photo, my first thought was: "dear God, how much smoke and air pollution", haha! I read about your words about looking and "soaking" into a region and I perfectly understand you. I had the same with mine, sometimes I like to watch it, see the towns and villages I've built and sometimes haven't visited for months or years, looking at the market squares, churches, roads etc. Even if it may sound a little bit narcissistic of us Sometimes I see, I've built a big history about the region inside of my head, but I always wonder, how to present it to the others, so it won't be boring nor chaotic
Quote from: manga rivotra on November 01, 2016, 10:58:40 AMQuoteAnyway. I really enjoyed looking at Traelonisk and just soaking in the atmosphere, so to speak, and I actually took some pictures! YayAnd i enjoy these pics a lot too ! Great job with these little vegetable garden and this beautiful little medieval port. The historic atmosphere is perfectly rendered.

Quote from: FrankU on November 02, 2016, 08:31:48 AMGreat work as always Erik!
Quote from: Vizoria on November 02, 2016, 10:47:05 AMGood stuff! Those textures of yours are fabulous!
Quote from: Themistokles on November 02, 2016, 01:32:26 PMAs you say, Traelonisk has a strong atmosphere. I love the way the walled city is not yet crammed with buildings, as it becomes over the centuries. Inside my head I can already picture how the city would develop through the ages, as buildings, roads, outer areas and eventually trams and rails etc. are added. It's really great that you push on with this region, it's truly special and unique in breadth, scope and authenticity.
Quote from: Gugu3 on November 03, 2016, 02:16:17 AMI really like the look of your city!
Quote from: Simmer2 on November 03, 2016, 09:51:42 AMErik Your attention to details is a true statement of dedication and the pursuit of perfection.
Quote from: noahclem on November 03, 2016, 04:20:34 PMJust stunning pictures of your unique and fantastic work! I have to admit to being relieved you've not given up this region. It's really neat seeing the walled town that still has plenty of space within its borders and the port makes me want to start working on another thing with the historic harbor set right away! Always a pleasure to read through this area.
Quote from: Vizoria on January 08, 2017, 08:40:21 AMYour Medieval Simcity is coming along just nicely! The scene with the marketplace and the livestock pens is really well put together.
Quote from: kbieniu7 on January 08, 2017, 08:40:29 AMWhat a smoke! :-XAt least there's open space so all this local pollution could be blown away! The terrain painting and coverage looks brilliant!
Quote from: Gugu3 on January 09, 2017, 01:07:02 AMGreat pictures! I really like your city!
Quote from: Themistokles on January 09, 2017, 11:52:25 AMYour city is growing. (With that density of people and animals, beware of disease though! )
Quote from: Akallan on January 10, 2017, 08:27:24 AMVery nice work, I would love to have the knowledge like you to make villages like you! The BATs are really beautiful!
Quote from: compdude787 on January 10, 2017, 10:49:55 PMWow, looks awesome! Coming along quite nicely!
Quote from: art128 on January 11, 2017, 12:27:08 AMIt is indeed coming alone, love the feel it has. I'm eager to see this city evolve into a new modern metropolis at some point in the future.
Quote from: vortext on January 29, 2017, 06:39:25 AMPretty much hit the nail on the head. I got so many idea's behind how & why the region developed but writing it all down as an interesting 'rpg' history with fiction and real history intertwined as I initially intended is just, well, too much work frankly. Thanks for the kind words!
Quote from: vortext on January 29, 2017, 06:39:25 AMShould be pretty obvious what the plans here are, right?!
