    Okay guys,

    just that you can see that I am indeed working
    on it, not just telling :D

    So, after I did a clean re-start with deleting all my previous cities,
    I recently found the time to build a bit on Titania:

    the suburbs

    A bit more...
    and a SERIOUS question:
    As you can see in the following images,
    I used the Arc de Triomphe to embellish Titania.
    So the question was whether the whole building construction was too
    similar to the original Arc de Triomphe, which was a category 1
    building, so to be used only once in whole Alpha Centauri.
    If you think so, I will need to demolish it...

    Was a little bit inspired by the Hotel Atlantis The Palm in Dubai:

    This looks or is eligible to be like a category 1 in either ways to be honest. And i do think it is similar. Dreian can decide.

    @Pamascus27 :
    Yes, that it looks like a category 1 building is clear.
    The question remains whether the whole construction itself is too much looking
    alike the real Arc de Triomphe. The real Arc de Triomphe should be built
    by a Countries' Player, as reward for having won some contest.
    And yes, it looks similar, as I did use the no-collision version of the Arc de Triomphe.
    As asked above, is it too similar for your taste?
    That's the question...

    I don't mind, it looks pretty original. Furthermore the winner of the Arc de Triomphe will probably use the small version.

    I neither don t mind about the arch. It looks quite pretty integrated to the construction so i would keep it like that.

    And i really like what you do with Titania for the moment! You are really getting this gigantic spirit!

    Yes, I had an "interview" with Kim Jong Un, he told what to do to have
    a suitable capital city of an dictatorship country :D

    Yes, well, I don't really like always building megalomaniac structures...
    Always have in mind that this kind of utopia/dystopia would not work
    if people always felt suppressed by the government, and this even
    through the building size...
    So I will also build small structures, something I am currently doing...

    Last images in the meantime, don't want to take away all surprises
    and also, I want to get your minds blown once the city was mostly done...
    Btw, second picture actually shows the splitting of the bridge within air...

    Here the Central Station of Titania:
    Not everything has been finished yet, still I thought it was worth to show :)
    most of the railtracks within the city will run underground, simply because I am too lazy to deal
    with all this stuff all the time, and I got better things to do...

    Okay, here the finished central station complex:
    megascreen0057.jpg
    On the right side, you can see the entrance to several (fictive) tunnels,
    as most of the train railtracks are running underground, to save space for buildings.

    Seems like Titania will not be updated anytime soon, I am sorry :( :(
    Today, there happened a crash, which usually should not have been that
    scary. The scary part happened when I had to notice that the last
    two saves that I took within the last weeks obviously were "contagious" ones,
    meaning I could not load the city when having put in those saved files...
    I am deeply sorry :cry:
    I hope I nonetheless can makes something out of the photos I have, though...
