    Your parks and green areas are really beautiful. I like the picture from Cargo Airport with the houses and network of roads there. International Airport with it's transition to the city is very impressive.

    I absolutely love this, but as an Australian, feel rather ill towards the placement of the Sydney Opera House.

    Other than that, love that you didn't overload all the attractions and great buildings in one small area like most cities. Like that you spread it out around the whole city.

      Actually the opera house is placed carefully at downtown right at the entrance to that park. i like its position, but of course its a markable and famous monument, its location is a matter of taste in this game. thx nevertheless for the review.

    I think you've done a really great job with this city. While many areas such as the airport/industrial area were very exciting, I really feel like the transportation engineering was a bit bizarre, lacking grid structure or commonality. However, this is a matter of taste since your choice did not go totally against realism.

    Also, while your arterial transportation network was very aesthetically enhancing, I can tell that based on their collection/distribution points (entrances/exits) and directional patterns that it might not provide completely effective and equal access. This is a problem that I encounter every now and then during my projects. I've learned to keep as much of the highways grounded as space would provide, and where absolutely necessary, elevate or connect with viaducts. This is important to realism because in real life, elevated highway sections are exponentially more expensive than grounded portions, and therefore are not very cost effective (a factor that contributes to realism). Also grounded highways are very easy (and cheaper) to upgrade to accommodate structural changes in the city's infrastructure as it grows. And to make the roads higher so passengers and have a scenic/skyline view of downtown and other highlight areas, a simple fill would do.

    Lastly, my favorite picture was the airline window shot of the city. You did a great job with the photo-shopping.. I wish I knew I to do that!

      Thanks! Yes, there are missing some ramps for reasons of space. It turned out too big and weird for my taste.

      The photoshopped picture you mean has been edited by Artmaster, credits go to him :-)

    I really love the harbor. One of the most beautifull city i ever seen.

    How many hours are you spend to built it ?
    1. Inan
      Author's Response
      Thank you very much! I honestly don't know how much hours i spent on it so far. The map is flat and huge and still not finished... :-)

    The harbor is very well done, I loved the way you connect the railway into the industrial blocks, the combination makes the area very believable. The flyovers do well in reinforcing the visual richness of the scene. I think this part is the best of New Hastling. (reminds me of San Diego :P)

    The general layout of the city is great too, especially the suburbs. But in comparison I think the city centre lacks some… attractions, it’s bland and a bit boring. And I strongly believe that you can do better with the Community Park, it has potential but is less than remarkable for now. Some furniture maybe?
    1. Inan
      Author's Response
      Thank you for reviewing New HastINGS :-P

      In General i can say that it is all about the matter of taste i think. The whole city should look like an industrial hub with a financial center. Indeed i have not placed much attractions or blueprints (in the whole city actually) there intentionally. Nonetheless there are that dome building and the stadium as "highlights" close to the CBD. Furthermore i thought the park with the statue, the opera house and the space needle can be some touristic hubs of the city too. That was enough for me, i was afraid of getting an overkill as result, lol.

      I like the location of the park on a peninsula and its basic look actually. But i understand your point. I will take close ups of the park later on, let's see what i can do ;-)

    Phenomenal. Your airport really helps me to understand how to build on better! The whole city overall is just awesome, I noticed your rail connections are separate (due to the game), if you have some pictures you'd like Photoshopped for more realism I'd be glad to do a few that really stand out to you. Build on!

      Author's Response
      Thank you! I'll show more pics of the airport later on. The area right infront of it is still unfinished. As i told Kurtis Edwards, i really don't like that rail intersections. Due to my not existing skills with photo editing i am pleased to read your offer to make some photoshop-creations with my pictures. I would like to accept. Please take out the pictures you would like to edit or just ask me, what kind of images you need for it. Thanks again for reviewing and the nice words! :-)
