    Just a few shots of my main city area and two of a small town and farming area. Been working on it all for most of the day. Had to force myself to save and quit :LOL:

    Hey, good work on the highways, but I think you should avoid the highway ramps dropping off, make them a bit more curvy. Also, I heavily recommend the use of more plazas (y)

    @skullz613, I'm pretty sure that you will win the medal for the best rural areas once again, but I think it's better to to keep the highway ramps on the same level as the given road network, and change the peripheral roads instead:

    I was originally going to make the ramps connect to the bridges by drazic that span the highway but they are not friendly. I decided to just run them to a small avenue bridge instead. It's very busy but works. Just like my messy rhm offramps the other end of the highway.

    An excellent map choice! Cities of different style and scale can certainly flourish on this land.
    I don't think I'll join the competition, I've forgotten all those little tricks to manipulate in-game mechanics, not to mention the mods! And I'm quite occupied atm... working on an essay for architecture history course, boring stuff. The school year ends in late May so technically I'll have 2 months if I change my mind by then. Can't really say for sure, cause I am so reliant on feelings and instincts :LOL: I don't plan things really.

    Anyway, wish you all good luck. I'm sure you'll get something from the experience winning or not :love:

    @ObelicS The colour gives me this Eastern Orthodox feeling somehow, but I'm guessing Cairo

    @ObelicS Orange roofs?. . . hmm. . . i guess it's somewhere Southern Europe

    I am sure it's not Greece. Train stations here are not that big lol and. . . well. . . roofs are more light brown and not this style. . .

    I'd dare say Spain? Portugal? Italy. . .?

    or perhaps Croatia??? or Montenegro? :unsure::sneaky:

    hahaha doesnt matter, i would probably guess wrong myself cause its not so much french style in it. It would be best to have Paris pack, smaller version, with yellow/orange roofs :p

    Finally started working on the city after solving a crazy mod issue!
    A road-railway bridge spanning across the thinnest part of the lake
    gamescreen0003.jpg gamescreen0004.jpg

    And a highway-highway interchange at the south end of the bridge. This interchange mimics the interchange of Jiangcheng Boulevard and 4th ring road in Caidian District, Wuhan, China (except toll booth).

    What kind of issue? I had some problems placing plazas cause game crashed everytime... I uninstalled the unlocker light and it works now, but the map still makes the game not fluid... I will try to build something until the game will do!
