The Long Dark – Photography

I’m obsessed with The Long Dark. It’s a really beautiful game. I take a lot of pictures in real life and quite a few in TLD. Here are a few of my best shots and the rest can be seen here. I usually need to drop gear to lose the HUD. A lot of these are from Coastal Highway. It’s my favorite region as it has favorable weather, great hunting, and great bases from which to pack out and return.

Cities:Skylines Copper Creek

I’m working on a new city. I tried to go with a more rural plan, but the intrigue of skyscrapers creeps in every time.

The hustle and bustle of downtown Copper Creek:

Map: Copper Creek by Scotland Tom.

I’m going to still build up the downtown area and keep up my satellite rural areas.

My next adventure is starting St. Louis, MO on a 1:1 scale, using this map, like this guy did.

Hours logged at this point: 110.

Cities: Skylines

I’ve logged over 30 hours on Cities: Skylines in the past week. I think I’m addicted. Below is one of the main open air skywalks I built for my current city. It’s greatly reduced pedestrian traffic on the road, thus improving the flow of vehicular traffic. Never underestimate the power of an amazing skywalk system. Time Magazine says, “You Need to Check out Cities: Skylines,” and I agree. It’s not the old Sim City that we all loved growing up. It’s so much better.
