    Your work is great RA :)
    However personally i do not like this walled city. The walls are still medieval- of course it would need a lot of time to build an industrial one from scratch. Moreover there are too few buildings inside the walls. But it fits the rest of the set in every other way.
    I admire the fact that you actually bother to create a 4-era set, i would never do that since it is simply too much work for me. Everything else looks wonderfull :)

    I like the look of the Walls, they are Very esthetic and I believe they are fitting even for the Industrial Age because they bring a nice "historical appearance" which adds a nice touch to keep and display this CIV's Great Culture. I don't believe it is at all necessary nor as desirable to make Walls to seemingly "fit" a general notion of what they "should" look like for an Era. This is especially true if the walls detract from the over all Esthetics of the Cities... These are Superb for many reasons :goodjob:

    Why do you want walls in the industrial and modern age anyway? they should become obsolete with gunpowder :p

    Actually, I do have Ancient Walls become obsolete with Gunpowder I was tempted to hearken back to Civ I and pull the same on Barracks, but found the disruption to game play too extreme.

    Anyway, Ancient Walls are replaced by Vauban Walls, which I consider to exist (with ongoing improvement) until Verdun.

    Then come Maginot Lines ...

    Thanks again for the great comments, everyone. :)
    I did the walls as they are by order of Gen. Rommel. Hopefully they are acceptable to him as well.

    Not really much of an update, but I added cherry trees to the cities done so far.
    The trees grow in each size, and enter a new season in each era.



    Just the modern era to do now, if the above is all good.

    Totally fantastic!:goodjob:

    Modern era cities should be full of factories & other industrial buildings as Japan industrialized quickly & furiously. Look at a photo of any Japanese city, town or village in 1890 & then in 1990 & you'll see an incredible transformation.

    Well that depends on when you have the Modern Era/Fourth Age start. In a typical civ game, the Modern Era doesn't start until post-WWII, 1950s, etc. What your describing more fits the Industrial Era/Third Age.

    You did a much better job with the trees than anything I could have come up with. I'm glad the little suggestion was found useful.

    Awesome! These are going straight into my mod when they're done! These are probably the best Asian city styles ever.

    Alright, city graphics winner of the month has two big contenders for now, Varwnos with his onion cathedrals and this. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Looks great RA :)

    @Takhisis: Red will need more than a month to finish the final era. But when he does it sure will be difficult to beat him ;)

    Loving it so far. I have a strong need for a modern Japanese city group in the near future - can't wait to see what you do with that :)
