You sure about the in-fill Ray?

Don't you think that the (current) natural terrain would make the city more interesting? It would give people the opportunity to build much more varied house designs (e.g. Sticking out from hillsides), and the view across the city from the high-level entry gates would be far more impressive than just looking across a fairly level plain.

I agree with terraforming the land around the edges, next to the inner road, and smoothing this into the land inside, but I'm not convinced about levelling the whole area.


(P.S. Sorry I've not been on to help much... We're away on holiday with friends and no access to my computer. Back soon!)

 

oh no, we're not leveling/filling everything.. we're just shaving it down to somewhere around y:67 (up to the terraformers discretion).. when it's all done there will still be plenty of bumps and hills. :D

Marko - check your keyboard for an F-Lock key. If you have one push it and try F3 again. I think you're on a Mac (no offensive comments please, I use one too) so check Settings/keyboard for possible F3 overrides by the OS. PM me if you want more help, we don't need to ignite pc/Mac arguments if we can help it!

Changes aren't permanent.
But change is.

When Ray was talking about in-fillinging he meant in the new terraformed hills under the wall, we don't want hollow hills.  :)

Thanks Merlin - I've been a Mac tech since 1976!  I have a hack conflict.....

Phase 4:

 

sixtycityplan3.png

 

 

Added an updated "3d" version of the terraforming needs:

 

sixtycityplan3c.png

 

 

Hey Ray, in the SE corner the 2 maps differ as to what we are terraforming? Do we cross the river or not? :)

 

Also on the Northern rail line which currently runs through the tunnel.. Do we drop the mountain to track level or below or leave it in the tunnel?

The new one is technically more up to date, the new red shaded area over the river needs shaved down for the new wall (if you follow the wall you'll see a sign that indicates when the tunnel starts). Everyhting before that in that area needs terraformed.

 

Wouldnt worry too much about the mount area though until I get the wall/tunnel installed. For now we should probably just focus on North West and North East.
