Just a great way on getting good idea early on and being able to share with your Cities XL 2011 peeps!

Lesson here folks is don't graduate.

Here are some screens of my only city: Vartan, 2,100,000 inhabitants.


A view of the north-west part of the city, shot from the island in the centre. You can see overground metro tracks in the distance, they look really cool, like a roller coaster :)

A view of most of the residential areas, taken from the western end of the city. The closest buildings are high density elites structures. You can see a metro station on the left.

Another view of the residential areas, taken from the north-east part of the city (where most of the skilled workers live :))

Omg how can you play with those texture settings? Looks like something from 1998 :S
Anyways when you are dumping screens you could turn up the graphics. Kinda waste of space when it looks like that :P
Otherwise it looks nice.

The textures in those images are all low quality textures. Note how they have a distinct lack of detail. When taking screen shots to share it's best to turn the settings to medium or higher, take the shots you want, then reduce the settings back down to your original settings so that you can continue to play. In this way you get high quality screen shots instead of what is posted above which lacks detail on the buildings and landscape and well, pretty much everywhere.

It looks like it could be really nice but that quality is horrible. I have a nvidia 380 something. I can go on high and no lag of the game. I will post some screen shots soon. ;)

While low, and extra low setting screen shots aren't the prettiest, they're better than nothing!! Thank you!

When my cities reach 100k (cxl 2009), I can't take medium quality screen shots on my PC either :( I actually think the zoomed out screen shots look better at lower graphics settings; try some of those :)
