    so, what are your wishes for Christmas? Mod wishes? Anything else? ;)
    [​IMG]
    Some of my wishes:

    1) the comeback of some of the old members, e.g. Ghulyen, facaden, snick, The_Funky_Monk, to mention some guys. I really miss them, they had always been supportive to other members on the old site and, briefly, on new XLN as well :cry: and I also hope that some members do not forget to visit us once in a while, e.g. @Mets, @Miguel, ...

    2) some mod wishes:
    a) a Norwegian Stave Church
    b) the Harpa Concert Hall
    c) another missing pack ((rural) China, India, and especially a pack of subcentral American city district buildings)
    d) more medieval walls (seems like Mr. @PaulJChris is already working on it)
    e) damn, yeah, some more menu locations, @Altiris :b32:
    f) having some tramways where no people are running on the sideways, it can look quite unnatural when the tram is running through a more rural area and you have like a 100 people running on it.
    g) some more round things, but don't overkill it (5 image links in that line)
    h) some fancy skyscrapers
    i) more American Condominiums
    j) buildings for civic services, especially kindergartens and schools :)

    Generally, @Alex24 converting his CSL mods

    And what about your wishes for XL(N)?

    I'd like to see more 40x20 houses so there's more variety.
    I posted a picture earlier this year of some older W2W American houses (2 story/3 story) that I'd also like to see to create those lower class neighborhoods.
    Maybe some retirement style houses too. There are usually small and W2W. They are normally in a gated community styled area.

    1: I would like to see some south-east Asian Temples, like the ones in Thailand or Cambodia...
    2: a pack of buildings on Vienna's Ring Road https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vienna_Ring_Road#Buildings or the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Stephen%27s_Cathedral,_Vienna or parts of the Hofburg Palace - Wikipedia
    3: Heaps of castles, cloisters, and palaces from all around the world... English mansions, palaces and ancient keeps (Blenheim Palace, Corfe Castle), Châteaux of the Loire Valley - Wikipedia, Austrian abbeys and monasteries (Melk Abbey - Wikipedia or Göttweig Abbey - Wikipedia ...), maybe the Potala Palace - Wikipedia and the Forbidden Palace in Beijing...

    Yeah, damn it, you are right. And you are the new admin, modders should do anything you wish for :D
    On a side note, I think that a 10x30 base is quite a good measure for such subcentral w2w neighbourhoods. Like @giorgoselsedai did. But just 2 or 3 stories instead of 3-6 stories. Maybe he finds time for an update ;) :p

    The low rise residential packs giorgoselsedai created are still hands down my favourite mods. I use the unskilled and skilled mods in all my cities. My only wish? More of those, maybe elites and executive houses? Some cape cod style beauties perhaps?

    First of all, merry christmas guys! :toast:

    And let me get to the mod wishes. First, I would really like to see an amphitheatre. I know there is one done by a modder, but it's not the way I like. I would like a ploppable amphitheatre to place it at the foots of a hill, so that the steps would be "embedded" (buried?, not sure about the right word) inside the hill.

    Second, I would love to see some more orthodox churches, I know there are a couple of mods for Orthodox churches, but they are mostly too great to be real. I mean, I like some rather ordinary churches, placement of which would not be awkward for any neighbourhood. For instance, I really would love to see Hagia Triada Church in Istanbul.

    And last, I would love to see some more ugly buildings (not like the ones in the vanilla version of the game). As I am building a Turkish town currently, I would love to see such dense buildings and of course red-roofed buildings of any kind. Well Drazic's and aitortilla's and Tanzy's mods comes handy for my town, but some more red-roofed and ugly buildings do not hurt anybody. :sneaky: Not all the towns are European in terms of architecture guys. ;)

    It's too much but this is an ode to yesterdays. For the island contest, I really would love to see some white buildings, Greek style. This is not a request but a humble regret.

    I would like some more construction mods for the suburban areas, some more suburban variety (the vanilla suburban buildings are hideous), and medium density American-style buildings. Oh yeah and more American high-rises!
