    Rio is one of the biggest cities in Brazil, with over 6 million inhabitants and it's also the main postal card of the country.

    No doubt that the buildings in junction with the mountains create a very unique skyline and a beautiful one too, so beautiful that got popular know by the nickname "Wonderful city".​

    I got so inspired by this very magnificent city, and tried to create my own version of it using CITIES XXL.

    I specially thank all the creators of the moods that I used to build it.

    First of all, I would like to introduce IPANEMA beach, one of the most popular beaches at the city, whit it’s diversity and huge extension of sand, it’s one of the best places at the city, and got a high number of elites and executives living in.

    Well, what would be Rio if’s not COPACABANA… the unique sidewalk style is known for the entire globe. It is the most cosmopolitan place of the entire Rio. It got one of the best seas for diving and bathing and also the nicest view of the city, which attracts a huge number of hotels and elite residences.

    TO BE CONTINUED…
    I haven’t been able to finish all the parts of the city yet, but soon enough I will bring you guys more updates.

    You can expect for the next update, the City Downtown, Flamengo Neighborhood, the Marina and maybe a few more details...


    PS.: I'm really sorry for the low quality of the photos... I´ll be working on a better quality of images, and do some photoshop to make it looks more realistic and reupload them here. ​

    Until soon!

    The way you build those little houses on the mountain area is just realistic. 5 starts.

    Well that's a good start, the pictures are nice, I like the cobbled esplanade along the bay. This esplanade would surely deserve to be embellished by some trees, benches, different street furniture, etc ...

    I'll start by giving you 4 stars to cheer you on, and I'll be sure to give you 5 stars in future updates, which I'm sure will certainly live up to this wonderful city!

    Well done keep up the good work.

    More thought could be taken in the placement of buildings, plazas, etc. More photos might help give us a better sense of place.
