    Really good looking city! :goodjob:

    Some thougths: How about leaving more free space in the center, creating a huge plaza? Advertisements in the buildings would also help to create the effect of a modern city. Blue Monkey's suggestion about having buildings in construction would be also a nice idea. Anyway, this city, as it is now, has a sure place in many scenarios!

    How about an international airport, broadcasting center and several hypermarkets? I think that they might be great if they are added into your graphics.

    I doubt I can fit those in without making the graphics overlap with everything else. Also would be too awkward if you have a city with city improvement graphics even if they don't have them built to begin with.

    Any final comments before I consider the Modern graphics complete for size 3?

    I see at least three architectural eras there. Looks very cosmopolitan to me. My vote goes for putting it to bed.

    Industrial Tamna.

    Tamna's graphics will be used as the "Island Countries" culture group (with the exception of Izumo, which constitutes its own culture group with the Hokuban and Youkai) in the Tempest of the Dragon mod.

    Next is to figure out the walls...

    I liked the way the city center looked for the era 2 Tamna city graphics, so I made a few adjustments and came up with a "Market District" city improvement.

    Tamna Sindang [Shaman Shrine]

    (Can also be used as an Okinawan / Ryukyu "Utaki", which was similar)

    Modern wall graphics for Tamna. Three more wall graphics and then I can finally put together the PCX. :)

    That gatehouse is supposed to be a toll gate. None actually exist on Jeju Island but they're pretty common in mainland South Korea.

    All intruders without proper change will be shot! :crazyeye:

    I like the wall following the contours of the town. Much nicer than another iteration of the standard box. It must take a lot more time, but it's definitely appreciated.

    Work in progress so far. Only recently realized that these cities are considerably larger than the Firaxis ones. The old Firaxis graphics are pasted over. I'm kind of wondering if I should just keep those smokestacks and Firaxis-made skyscrapers in the background of the modern set since they almost fit in.

    After I finish with the Tamna city set, I'm going to fiddle around with Hexagon 2 to create better roof models so I don't need to dedicate so much time to finding workarounds to Bryce's modelling limitations.

    They blend well, imho.

    I like them a lot! It's fine if they are bigger than Firaxis graphics too.

    I think this has to be the best city set I've produced yet. :) Still need to do something about the annoying overlapping shadows...
