I know this is a shocking site yes, I have an update...First time in quite a long time, atleast it seems so to me, I'm used to updates every week or two and I'm going on a month without an actual update but here she be, Mackay Park. For those familiar with Melbourne, it's designed to have similar assets as Albert Park and Melbourne Park and is in conention to host Simlympics XVI.



Just as is in Albert Park, a racecourse winds its way through Mackay Park, going around Mackay Lake.


But along the far side, along the straight between turns one and two, is West City Stadium, a 67,000 seat Engineering Marvel which would host the Opening Ceremonies of the XVI Simlympiad.


While the centerpiece of the event is the Northern Wheel, a Ferris Wheel aimed at the Northern Pole of Adonia, between Park Arena and West City Stadium.


But neighboring Park Arena is another marvel, the Mackay Park Tennis Center, anchored by Lachlan Holtze Arena, Court 1 of 9.


Along the North edge of the actual park is JC Haszler Stadium, which would host Athletic events for the Simlympics.


Mackay Park Cricket Oval and the Pearson Road area of town.


But the Mackay Park Train Station is the main way to get into and out of Mackay Park.

Stunning as usual .. and I love the parks.

Only gripe is lack of car parks, although I see parking structures and underground entrances to car parks. There is something about the ugly eyesores that are carparks that adds to the realism and the over all effect of the area... I guess it's something we are use to in real life and when see pictures with out them, it looks odd. I do prefer the greenery though Razz

Great choices for the stadiums and I hope you are successful with your Simlympic bid!

The idea is that the car parks are underground Smile I'm working on a project in school where the entire parking garage is underground actually. Shocking but I'm in charge of the landscape for the whole project (three leaders, i'm Site)

Thanks Kurt, I think you forgot an R in there at the end but i've never really known :p And yes I did, it's based on the last few turns at Albert Park (http://g.co/maps/xcmuy) sorry, Google Maps doesn't understand what i'm doing here :p

I love this, and hope you'll succeed in your Simlympic bid (although I think you should put an underground car entrance or two at least - they have transit-enabled versions on the STEX) Smile
