Thank you austin. Funny though...SSP says it was completed in 1993, and Emporis says 1989.

Yeah, I've noticed that the commentary on Sketch-up is not the same as it used to be. Nowadays it's just a 'good job'.

Anyway austin, regarding your first point, you can only do so much (as far as adding things from the warehouse) without the program to lagging. Just add more hand made detail and I think it'll be fine.

For your second point I would suggest adding a pond or two extra to your parks, and perhaps add a stone bridge over them (think Central Park). You might also want to put in more fountains and objects (that in reality) would draw attention to a public plaza or park.

Looks wonderful as always austin. Thanks for the update.

1. Thats a HARD one, I'm trying to figure out the same thing, Staunton's street level is so dead (notice no aerial shots?) so I have to get back on that.
2. Treeeeeeeeeeesss, paths, ponds, tennis courts.

The culmination of all the different cities plus your own input has really made for a nice architectually diverse city. The waterfront progress seems to be coming nicely, as well as the parks. Keep up the good work!

busy! but not much new. Im coming towards the end of the pennesula,and once that happens ill have to do lowrises,based of one of my favorite places to hang,uptown dallas itll have lottsa shops,museams,librays,theaters,convention centers malls,hotels and Murals,lots of muruals. its sorta like an entertainment district.it might be topped of with that bridge,bt i dunno yet. it might look funny.

Once that happens,i can go back to old town,where i first started. Remember the historic waterfront?



um,yeah to think that that was just months ago!

I have o admit,BOA Center really can take about all the credit for my improvment. It changed the face of Felix's. and none really even knows bout it.


until then,heres the current city.



eww






do do do do,do do do do...


Tsunami? oh well,looks good


ye! mo soon. the suns out and its great outside!
