    Here's a few pictures from a city I'm building on my Doha 2 map. Its got a long way to go and I'm hoping I don't get the same error that I posted a few days ago. That error happened on the same map but I believe its a mod that was causing it.

    An unfinished park.

    What kind of city is this? Is it an Asian city? Because you're using the Japanese roads mod.

    It's going to be a multi-cultural city.
    I'm using the Japanese textured roads because I like how they look. Nogerivan did a great job on them.

    That finished park needs some refinement, as I can see some
    flying decoration. You should ask what construction way is
    more of a pain in the ass: either building collision box things
    using placeholders, or trying to get all no-collision things
    on the same level...

    Which bits? Do you mean the lamps or the planters?

    I think both, but the lamps are flying in any case, not?

    I think its the shadows making them look like it in the screenshot. I will check them later in the game.

    But anyway, looks amazing :)

    I'll be moving the industrial zone at some point. At the moment I'm having a problem with the game bombing out. I did the 4gb patch thing a few days ago and suspect it could be the cause.

    Can't really narrow down whats going on at the moment. The game will run for 10 odd minutes before crashing with the patched exe. If I use the unpatched one and put the poolsize in globalsettings back to 2048 it runs a bit longer but also crashes.
    I've manged to get a bit more done on this city but I think I'm going to start another city on a default map and see what happens.

    Hmmh, maybe try to post a log?
    Or did you use some construction that cannot work properly?
    I had used the in-game water falls in my old city some time ago.
    I placed it such that the shown water particles could not reach the
    ground immediately, and some minutes later, the game crashed...

    I'll post some of them but I don't see anything in the last few lines of the that indicates why the crash happens.

    Well, then it will always be the same... play and save your folders :p
    there had been a nice tuto that was about to solve the problem almost automatically for you!
    But I don't know whether it has already been migrated, original author was one billion daleks...

    This city has been archived for now due to the constant crashing. I suspect there's a mod causing it.
    I had started a new one using CXL Platinum but there's a problem with the graphics and after a while some of the buildings graphics look awful. I have seen a post about it somewhere. I have started yet another one but this time in CXL 2012. I'm hoping this one will grow without any problems.
