This Guy Built A Real, Living, Breathing City

It's been, can you believe, eight years since the last true SimCity game was released. Yet time hasn't stopped people from doing amazing things with the venerable old PC game.

This is Al Aauim, a city that's been built in the game that's frightening in its realism and attention to detail. Using real Asian cities as inspiration and some mods to get the buildings and advertisements looking more appropriate, user _marsh_ has built a metropolis that's so dense and full of character every corner looks like it can tell its own story.

There's a breathtaking shot of the city below, and plenty more if the link below survives through the night.
