Really enjoying what I have seen so far and looking forward to the next update.  Good luck with the exams.  You'll hae had your award...
First things first, but not necessarily in that order.


Congratulations, Muzz! Calderwood looks fantastic, and is definitely worthy of "Special Interest" status! Good luck with your exams, and I'll be looking forward to your next update!


Hello all, my exams are almost over!  :thumbsup:

I have played SC4 once or twice the last few days and I'm getting back into it. Coming up after my exams I have a storyline that will involve war with a neighbouring country, and I will including a lot of in game pictures from that, not just a big long boring text! But don't worry, Calderwood won't get bombed to pieces, I can reveal that much!

Anyway, since you have been so patient I have a quick mosaic to post, it's only small, but it's of once of my favourite parts of the city and  should hopefully keep you going till after my exams! I will do replies in the next official update.

Thanks for being patient, I will return in the next few weeks with an official update!


It's a great mosaic there! Like the building at the top! :thumbsup:


I still think that we need to work out the kinks in the storyline though :P


Beautiful mosaic, Muzz! I love the diagonal buildings and the nightlighting. Can't wait to read the backstory! Keep up the good work, my friend!


I can understand why this is a favourite part of your city, looks very good.


I realise I have neglected my duties as a MD "Of Special Interest", but it was beyond my control, exam preparation took over, it was necessary. But with one exam left and the pressure relieved, I have finally been able to get back to SC4, and with it I bring an update! Ok, so it is kind of smallish, but it's the best I can manage at the moment, so please sit back and enjoy!


guurgkud - Thanks!
DFire870 - Thank you, that was one of the things I wanted to improve since my last attempts at this, the overall presentation!

Yes, a really great update with fantastic pictures also with great buildings! :thumbsup:


nice work Muzz, I really like the way you've created the intelligence building. Also, the sunken park work looks tastefully done, congrats on a job well done.


Wow! Another stunning update! I love it! I do have a question for you, though: Where can I find the buildings you're using for Caladian Intelligence and the Highlander Hotel?


Wheres my embassy  :angrymore: :P Quite nice but remember to plop the traffic gens next time ;)

nice work Muzz, I really like the way you've created the intelligence building.
I have also taken a closer look at that one, if it is one building combined several times it is very well done.
Love the update, some nice shots from Calderwood


Bloody great CJ.Like a mix of britsh/dutch/US.Love your plazas  :P
I'm back


Thanks for the comments everyone, I don't have time to do personal replies yet, I'll do them when I next do an update in about a week or so, but I have been playing around with Photoshop, and this is an experiment because I love weather pictures, and I might use similar concepts in future updates, so tell me what you think!

I realise the lightning looks a bit odd and out of place, but any criticisms and comments are welcomed!



Maybe the lightning could have looked more like a branch instead, but otherwise, I like it.

I think the lightning looks good, Muzz! Though wouldn't it strike closer to the top of the big building to the right?


That's an awesome picture at night! Nice lightning!
