  1. I don't think I've ever payed attention to that view before.
  2. That's what it would seem like. Glad that it's going along.
  3. It would be a good industrial building, lol. It could also be a casino (unique in that it would have windows). Or part of a convention center (the lower levels could be built into a larger base, and the upper levels could be made into smaller spaces, conference areas, and a parking garage). They could be office buildings. I think they could be a lot of different things. You could even reclad them to make them look like the Greektown Casino Hotel if you wanted to.
  4. uhh, so if my understanding is correct, they want to bulldoze the historic structure, and replace it with a fake new historic strucutre?
  5. Great! I've tried looking at those places in the past, but of course never could. Many hours of time wasting lay ahead of me.
  6. That's a great comparison. The difference is depressing.
  7. wow, yeah, it looks really recent. Higher resolution too! The only thing I don't like, is that they erase the roofs of the buildings when they overlap the street. I use Google Earth mostly to measure buildings, and look at roofs, so that kind of ruins it for me for some of those buildings.
  8. I think ridership would increase if hydraulics were installed in city buses.
  9. The range is 45,000 to 300,000, which isn't bad. And judging from some of the plans, and the lot sizes, many of them will probably be more in the middle. It's mega exciting though.
  10. Thanks for the numbers Hudkina. I'd also like to add that even though that area of SW Detroit is more dense, the NE side has always been less dense, and that it is not less dense because it is not intact, and that the intact area has a large area.
  11. I would say that the North East corner of the city is a lot more intact. Almost all of the houses are still there, there are nice local businesses, access to good schools, there is real shopping nearby. Nice parks, houses are generally maintained. I mean, how good that neighborhood is is being determined by how many houses have been burned down recently. I'm not saying there aren't worthwhile qualities, or that people shouldn't live there, but I don't think it's the most intact neighborhood of Detroit.
  12. I wouldn't say that SW Detroit is the most intact neighborhood at all. I think there are plenty of more intact areas, and they're closer to where you need to commute. I don't know how expensive these areas are though, but I doubt sharing a rental house with someone would be mega expensive.
  13. Mega-big thanks to Baldy for getting the photos for me.
  14. I can very very easily change the color of the lights. It's also very easy for me to change some of the properties (how far the light travels before it starts to fade, how strong the light is, etc.). I was planning on making the lights the orangy color they are in real life. I'll definitely experiment though. Does anyone have the reference photos that I need?
  15. Just pretend the valets are taxis.
  16. ^ There's the latest render of the old version. It wasn't too bad, but once I started working on the new one, I found all of the mistakes I made on the old one. The entire roof area was wrong with the old one, and somehow I even had the number of windows on the sides totally wrong. However I just noticed that I have one too many floors on the new one. Anyway, the new one will be a lot more accurate. tapezord, thanks! Yeah, the same thing with me. Actually, when I originally started this building, I didn't like it a lot and was just doing it because it was fast, and it would need to be done eventually. But since then I've warmed up to it a lot and like it in general.
  17. Hello everyone. I'm recreating 211 West Fort Street for Sim City 4. I'm all set for everything, except for the front lobby, I don't know how spread apart the windows are. If someone has a photo of that part of the building, straight on, from across Washington, so that I could see how the window frames are lined up with the rest of the building, it would be a big help. Here's my progress so far: I actually started this building over a year ago, but I've decided to restart it, since the first one I made wasn't very good. And while I was searching for photos, I ran into some fun 360 views from the building at its official site. Thanks.
  18. Does anyone know what's up with the Argonaut Building? Is it actively being worked on, or is it still in some kind of planning phase? It's supposed to be done in 2009, according to what we heard a while back.
  19. Very nice! Thanks for posting! You should put these in the photo of the day too.
  20. Nice photos! Somehow I don't think I've ever seen a photo of the Wayne County Building/Comerica Tower like that.
  21. I'm here. There hasn't been much to talk about. I guess I'll start a thread or something.
