    Hello, this is a development journal of my Inlet contest entry Bosphorus. Unfortunately I cannot gain access to the city anymore because of some reasons unknown, maybe the save file's corrupted or something like that. Anyway, I'll try to look for ways to get into it but for now, I wanna make a record for perhaps my best work from this game.

    I did not plan to make anything Mediterranean at first. My thought for Inlet was to create a medium sized city, with low to mid-density residential blocks, some recreational facilities, a neat and compact coupled with a landmark or two.

    This is where it started, a relatively subtle waterfront with some parks and churches. Peace and quiet, that's what I hoped for.

    Slowly expanding, terrain at the back of the seaside town was lifted.

    One of the easiset 5 star reviews i have given here. Yes, lots of unifinished areas, lots of work to be done in the future, still, from the very first moment i saw this i said myself something like "wtf! this is Istanbul and i have never seen something like this in here before" :) So. . . 5*

    Actually too less progress to give a review, but this is worth 5 stars nevertheless. As i already told you, the edited birdeye view is hyperrealistic, the overall look is indeed Istanbul-like, i haven't seen that before. I like that bridge and especially the Hagia Sofia on the hill. Hope you can continue...

    5/5,
    Amazing pictures ! I just dont like "adding " city parts with PS.
    Everything else its great. Editing, street layout also looks realistic and chaotic. Buildings choice is a bit too variable but i quess you needed that for realism. Keep up the good work :)

    Five stars, albeit there is no Journal part, and albeit the could not be finished. But the parts you finished are pure gold!

    Of course, there are some things that I dislike, e.g. the quite steep avenue leading to the tunnel. But the rest is just magnificent. I really hope you can find a way to get the City back to life :)
