    So here it finally is: An era-specific Greek cityset.

    Dedicated to varwnos whose comments helped me a lot and who bravely underwent all insulting stereotypes I have about the Greeks. Remember I was joking (well, mostly). In fact, I do like Greece :)

    Great! I'm DL-ing right now, but don't you think that the modern ones are a bit to white? I like them too, anyway.

    I love your cities! IMO best greek/mediteranean cities ever.

    Dedicating a city modelled around Athens to someone from Thessalonike is like dedicating a city about Berlin to someone from Munich :p
    Good work though ;) I especially like the small houses on top of the grey apartment-buildings. I like them in reality too, since they give a feeling of chaos :lol:

    @all: Thank you :)

    Well, they are white. If they're too white, well that's a matter of taste :)

    Munich? Who cares about Munich :rolleyes:

    So where do you actually live, if I may ask?

    Gnah gnah gnah ;)

    He he, dont worry man.I totally ,100% agree with your comments about Athens.The beauty of Greece is more to the islands than of the big cities;)

    Once again, you made a great set..(For me now ingame, it looks better from the prievew)
