Nice, Echo reminds me of those whales/dolphins with he long horns in the front. That spire is a little too tall. But it makes the building look good.

The spire is quite large. I know it breaks 1000,but the roof dosnt. James's roof breaks 1000,making it the tallest.

also Piccaso Plaza's spire is huge,like 300 feet or something. But it looks good cause it half pole and half Setbacking Pyrimid.

2 questions for everyone.

1,do you think i should switch to regular trees insted of palm trees?

2,what should i do at the end of the pennesula? a battary park like area,nothing, or a Sydeney themed area that splits in half?

I,m leaning towards sydney.

what sort of architecture should i put there?

Answer 1: Have a combination of both.
Answer 2: Spanish and post modern architecture would look good, and I would go with a Sydney themed area.

1. Mix Trees and Palms
2. Sydney, Staunton was originally going to be modeled after Sydney before placing it in New Jersey!

Sydney, New Jersey

I have the misfortune of living across the river from Jersey. I can't stand it there whatsoever.

^No, early Staunton was supposed to be a West Coast City modeled after Sydney. But it was lame, I wanted an East Coast city with action, intresting stuff, crime, and a depressing tone, so then came New Jersey Staunton.

interesting stuff

my computer's runnin slow ATM,so no shadows or anything fancy here.

The "Elk Lodge". Indoor Arcade,pools,waterslides,all kind o goodies in here. see if you can guess what these two were based of off.





the park at the end of the penninsula feutures fully detailed terrian


random,flatiron towers thateve been around awile now,


Maybe Patrick will like these 2,they remind me of pics ive seen of LA(LA is one of the few major cities in the US I havent been to,along with Seattle And ATL.)



Thanks for lookin,more later on here soon.If you have any request,canyon shots,streetviews,fog shots... let me know.

See some Aon Center and U.S. Bank Building in their that resembles LA. Don't know what the 'Elk Lodge' is based off of, but if I had to guess, perhaps a Las Vegas resort?

Nope,its actually two towers,connected by a podium. The taller one shouldn't be to hard,but the lowrise is tougher. Hint,its based of a nyc lowrise.its actaully not very well known,I don't even know what its called.

The lowrise one to me slightly resembles 4 WFC. Is that correct?

Ahhhh....yes. I would've never guessed that (because I too don't know its name), but I always see and admire that building. It's actually in a few pictures I have hanging on my bedroom wall.

It's on Fifth Avenue. I don't know the name or height. My guess would be between 300' and 450'.
