Well, I've never really been to NY or Chicago but it's good. I didn't even know that they made NY and Chicago styled pizza's. I know Hot Momma's does though and it's the shit ova there. Get out of a concert at 1 am and go get some pizza. Fuck, I want some right now.

But are there any new updates on the "city"? Would this be a city or a very large town?

I'm not really quite sure yet. I'm thinking of making it a city with a very urban feel, even though it's pretty small, due to the density as a result of the geography.

And yes, there is an update . I'm not going to be able to work on it over weekends though, because I'm using a different computer and won't have access to the computer that has Port L'Allegro on it.

However, these were things I built last week...

So we have the Krispy Kreme and In-N-Out. The (fictional) founder of In-N-Out retired in Port L'Allegro, and upon seeing that there was no In-N-Out in Port L'Allegro yet, he used part of his retirement money to build a brand new one right on the waterfront in 1997. It was the first In-N-Out to use modern architecture which you now see at quite a few of their resteraunts today. In fact, due to his predicted popularity (which he was correct), it was a double floor resteraunt and Museum showcasing important things throughout the restaurant's history.

Unfortunately, the damn logos didn't show up! Rats, I'll have to try and find a fix for that. Here are the pictures:




I also built a new convention center, located at the heart of the city on the waterfront, built in 2000.




I hope you like!

Anthony

Yeah, the Convention Center is awesome. Looks very realistic. The Museum looks a little too much like a store but it looks great. Will you get water textures?

I highly admire the convention center. The design is very fitting with the area.

BoiseAirport, I gotta admit, so far this is one of the best SU cities ever, top 5.

What a remarkable convention center. The museum and the conv. center are both unique and nothing can make them any better than they already are.

So are you considering skyscrapers in the city's future? I would like to see something at least 12 stories. When do you plan to start building inland?

so...?
c'mon Boise keep it up!
Perhaps you should continue just the waterfront. You're good at making per category models (like airports!).

Yikes! I haven't updated in a month!

I guess I lost the motivation, BUT I'll regain it sooner or later. I'll force myself to work on it a bit and perhaps I can reinspire myself,

Actually, I suppose the good news is that I have enough new material to update, I just completely forgot, so I'll do that when I can over the next few days (I'm on vacation away from the computer with Sketchup on it now).

Sorry about that!
Anthony
