how to build replica of hometown.......?
Is there any way to use google maps as a 'guide' to build a replica of your hometown or city?

Any suggestions would be great

@ BasenjiMaste.......i could do that....but i guess I was thinking there was a way to import or overlay google maps within the game.

@ The doctor is in.......ok will check that out......thanks.

Hm, that would be pretty cool if that could be done. Let us know if you find out.

you can use f2 to play in windowed mode, i think. then you can alt-tab back and forth. i've done it playing simcity 4- i made a pretty convincing replica of moncton, nb, canada with it.

besides xlnation.net

if u have 2 computers have one running google earth or google map and another running cities xl

if you have two monitors have one displaying google earch or google map and another displaying cities xl

if you can run in windowed mode, else i guess you will have to alt+tab to switch between them

if you have only one monitor you will hae to alt+tab to switch between them

again try to run in windowsed mode, otherwise carefull if you are alt+tabbing most games, including this one, may eventually crash, so make sure you do manual saves periodically, and not rely on the single auto save.

have fun and post picture ;)
