Well, 2x2 parks are already planned.
And you want 1x1 parks, too?

Any specific wishes/ideas for me concerning this matter? :)

Not so much 1x1. More 2x1, 2x2 and a big 3x3 ... this sounds good.  ;D

Mayby more "dark" parks with many many dark trees, like the (Schwarzwald).

And some for the tropical zone? What park can placed at desert?

PS. Can you give me the new ground (for desert)?

Well, there's a new park for small cities, hehe.  ;)

Alex. Brose has not so many new painted. All objects are from older projects.

Of course some pixels are new and the way is new. But the most is only copy and paste.

My tip for you, gauthier: just zoom into the graphic. You can explore the graphic then and see my tricks.
Sometimes you only need small details. For the park: Some grass, flowers... I took the trees from the template. As sojo wrote - copy and paste. After all you'll need antialiasing for cleaner results. :)

EDIT: And don't forget the shadows! They are really important.

How do you make anti-aliasing ?

you could use gaussian blur, or some other kind of blur in GIMP or Photoshop

You're right, gauthier. *lol*

But it's worth the effort. I think, sometimes the artist has to "play" with the pixels. :)

Thank you very much, t.a.s. & Tomas!

Well, take THIS, hehe:


I'll show you (and the forum, of course) a much bigger building tomorrow. It's already completed but i promised sojo that he can test it before.  ;)

Really, really nice image. But tower is ordinary. 8 of 10 towers looks like as this ;)
This is unique and "sexy" TV tower & Hotel ;D

My TV Tower is close to the world's very first tv tower. You can find this tower in Stuttgart, Germany. All the thousands copies are based on Stuttgart's tower. :D :D

Vladimír: Not once per city. The chance is committed to 33%. :)

Like the USA. Most and biggest masts there.

By the way - this is Stuttgart's tower:

Nice to see this in the game :) For the pak, I'd suggest to make the tower-stem a bit leaner, the perspective on the photo distorts the real size relation a bit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernsehturm_Stuttgart

The base of the tower is definitely leaner than the "station" at the top. Thanks for adding that, Alex :)

After a long time without new graphics by graphic factory i have a new building for you. It's a modern office highrise.
At night the building is dark (well, not the logo) because the window cleaning is really high in price.  ;D
