Southern Highlands Progress for Week of July 19, 2015

Building continues in the Southern Highlands!  Sorry, I've missed a few weeks worth of updates.  Here's a general overview: facades, facades, and more facades.  I have a few blog posts to catch up on as well, detailing new facade ideas for different types of buildings.

In the meantime, here's what I've been working on:

For the past several weeks I had been mostly concerned with filling in facades around the beachfront, but as of yesterday I've been moving back towards Cactus Jack's railroad station in an attempt to fill in all of that land.  I'd like to at least close off the river back there, I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish filling that whole area with facade work.

The row houses in the first few images are my current project.  I'd like to do a blog specifically about that facade work... I'm very happy with how it has turned out as a filler build.  It gives a lot of character to the area of town it is in, and it'll be easy for me to stylize it with posters and 'scenes' of avatars/vehicles to really give it a personality.

The curved brick building in the images above was a lot of fun.  I intended for it to just be a facade, but after playing with shear for a little bit decided to bring it's beam further out to act as an awning for the adjacent building.  I think it worked out really well... I'd like to put a theater or something there, but for now it is just hollow.

The final shot shows some buildings I haven't featured here yet -- they're not quite done!  Soon. :)
