    Very Nice, Kyriakos! It's a perfect progression of your medieval Arabian set.

    :( The previous with the dirty yellow roofs was better. Can anyone send it to me, I bookmarked, but didn't save it.
    Kyr, there's a RU proverb which can be translated into EN this way: Don't cure the best with the "better". Please, spend a minute to think about (a proverb can be a subject for your new literature story) and don't press yourself.

    I agree with the "worse", but totally disagree with the "worst". ;) Do not cavil at yourself - you did a great job, there were a lot of people who confirmed it's great, so don't try to find fault & flaws. Of course, you can imagine them - but I don't believe they real. ;)

    :\

    This set had too many problems, and still has too many.

    -Having the yellowish roofs meant they were almost identical to those of my industrial Greek one.

    -The second and third centerpieces are dirt simple, and look bad (or at least not as good as other works by me)

    -The point is to keep making better work, otherwise why continue a decadent progression?

    -The houses are too generic

    -There are way too few colors, but i could not find a way around this.

    Hm, change roofs color for the industrial Greek set to more pinkish to connect it with Ancient & Medieval.
    Industrial Egyptian architectors fault, not yours. It's historically correct (I didn't comment in the topic, but it doesn't mean I didn't read it).
    See upper comment + the truth is always better & more interesting than any story & tale.
    Upper comment.

    Aren't you "72% of evil"? Also see the quote in my signature :)

    I like both or even three versions (including the one with blue roofs) of Industrial Egyptian cities. :D

    These industrial look better. I like your old style better, I hope you get back to that.

    billiebob, you see each creator has it's own style...and something special about style is that it is evolving, one learns to see things that did not exist before, becomes mature and learns the real things that count...of course there is also nostalgy... i understand you but this time i vote for kyriakos ;)

    I vote for "modern" Kyr too. I love when things progress as the time goes by, and there's a progress here, clearly.

    Ah, you so kind today, Ares. You always can do more with a kind word and a gun, than just with the kind word. :)
