Cool. Thank you!
I am going the japanese way.. expanding platforms on the sea...
It will be truly interesting to see your approach
hěn gāo xìng yǒu bǐ sài kě yǐ cān jiā.
I'm taking a north european approach, canals, big ports ect...
Couldn't resist working a bit on custom-made structures
That needs patience
You have a Surgeon's hand lol Kip!
Thanks but it is just the beginning
I thought of putting the harbour outside of the lagoon, so I don't need to care that much about bridge height.
Well, I try the contest,
It's my first time! Please be indulgent,
As I prefer the countryside, I rework the map, in order to give it a hilly countryside aspect,
I must admit that it is quite complex to make beautiful scenery with Cities XXL,
But, I hope that this first image will excite you?
Excellent work so far! I love your work with the bridges, it all looks so realistic! And especially your highway exits/ramps; I like that you avoid these ultra-steep exits/ramps that you see elsewhere.
Your town has already become my favourite
And I am glad that you chose the landside, so we both do not compete about the same theme (as I am building a metropolis rather than a rural area):
Spoiler: First highway exit
How are you guy's getting on with digging? Is there enough depth to achieve what you want?
It is more than enough, look at my last post (Image in the spoiler)
Good work on that, Skullz
That's awesome news. It's one thing that has been plaguing my mind since I released the map out into the wild LOL
oh yes absolutely
lol can only see your images when i reply on your post
dunno since i dont really know what to build yet
but i hope ill figure out soon
Since all the pics here looks unexpected awesome, this contest must be very challenge to me hehe
actually i haven't figured out what to do with this beautiful map,and i have been playing Planet Coaster these days...Maybe i will build a small holiday resort with lots of rides (rides by Uokiok ,i would try if they work in XXL)at the seaside.
Regarding the megascreenshots and their size. . . remember you can always go mid-way.
I guess many people produce fullHD (1.920 x 1.080 px.) images, so their megascrenshots are coming at a pixel size of 7.680 x 4.320 px.
A mid-way solution would be UHD-1 = 3.840 x 2.160, the 4K format, shrinking the megascreenshot and also converting it at .jpg format at the same time.
I have produced some very very acceptable quality screenshots this way and their size is around 600Kb - 700 Kb which is also a very good size for the thread. It can really go less than the 2Mb we were talking about and still the quality and the detail will be very good.
Megascreenshots are good but remember: they do produce jagged images for some of the older mods and at certain angles, so this is a concern all the time.
I am tempted get a new graphics card that could upscale all this to crazy sizes. . . perhaps a 4K card to get giant jumbo magescreenshots, stil i don't know if the game would produce so. It is a crazy idea though now with the current fiscal issues i guess + it would raise my game-obsession to a new level lol. . . . . . not a good idea lol
What picture size do you think is good? for the competition and in general.
Would the game produce jumbo images if i had a jumbo graphics card?
I always use 1920x1080 pictures (between 800Kb and 1.5Mb)
I always take megascreenshots and reduce them
hmmm...why won't google translate recognize this language?
Thank you guys for your support,
so I continue on my momentum ....
I wanted you said, I have a double pleasure watching your images!
The pleasure of seeing your creation,
The pleasure of seeing some of my mods in your city!
The height of the ground is good
Actually I do the same and I reduce the width to 1500
