Whilst it's a lovely image, that industry doesn't fill me with a sense of your "culture". :P

I have to agree with Thomas. :P Industry =/= culture.

Nice pic regardless. :)

I happen to disagree with you both on this :P

Saying that culture isn't industry is a bit of a blunt comment, that underlies that you have a predifined image of culture as something, more noble maybe ?

let's take this definition found online by a quick google search
Culture is the characteristics of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts. [...]

In the 20th century, "culture" emerged as a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of human phenomena that cannot be directly attributed to genetic inheritance. Specifically, the term "culture" in American anthropology had two meanings:

I - the evolved human capacity to classify and represent experiences with symbols, and to act imaginatively and creatively; and
II - the distinct ways that people, who live differently, classified and represented their experiences, and acted creatively.
Both definitions link to history. The second definition is very interesting, it opens the sight on the large possibilities and things that are culture, not just a defined cold piece, encased in some museum. I think the Sherford Factory Piotr has posted shows us this perfectly, the factory shows how these people "acted creatively" in order to produce something in the past. it lies as a symbol of past experiences, and experiences to be.

Many places have culture like that where you don't expect it, some regions in France and Britain have an immense culture due to factories, furthermore, most of the British urban landscape was designed around factory villages, which then became a famous typology , notably Tyneside flats : a pair of single-storey flats in a two-storey terrace, distinctively with two separate front doors to the street rather than a shared lobby. Notably found on Tyneside, North Eastern England.

I hope I could show how yes, this factory is part of culture! :nod: and I leave you with a beautiful picture of a Factory, not so far from my house in Basel

That's more of the culture I was looking for!
Whilst I do see your point Greg, I disagree with the use of industry in what appeared to be a poster advertising the city. If that particular building is a defining landmark (a la Liverpool Docks and the Mersey) then perhaps that should have been mentioned. :)

Well probably, but then there is how did the city want to sell itself, this can be the choice for selling itself, it has already happened in other cities, also, how important is the "landmark industry" for the city, in Northern France 1 factory represents a whole city, like PAM for Metz :P

It is surely not a conventional all cleann high culture posh etc poster, but I think the factory choice is interesting.Of course the real answer will lie in the history of the city Piotr is making ;)

Well, I got schooled by Greg, it seems. :P Good nuff for me, I'm going to work on broadening my view of "culture". :D

That looks like a fantastic venue, Piotr. :D

Love the close ups and the night pictures.

I hope you plan to put in some tunnels under that river to help ease traffic congestion in the future when the city grows even more.

I didn't realise you had 600k + actual residents in that one city tile, that is a huge, very awesome and well done.
Coming soon, new information.

Not only is every section of the city tile fantastic and extremely realistic, you've managed to exceed even that with your amazing game stats.
