I though this was some postmodern art show... how consumerism  reflect on society or something like that

i can’t believe they got so far, building hundreds of these castles without a single person stopping this nightmare. This could only happen in turkey.
Luke Clayden
you should have made them all slightly different with more spacing and not in rows etc etc.....

This is horrendous not only is this design hideous but WHY in God’s name are there so so many and so close together!,
They don't want foreign muz moving into their village?

If burger KING marries diary Queen they live at white castle

Who was willing to invest in such a ridiculous project xD
Copy thousands of Medieval French-style medieval castles in Turkey ??
I also learned that the Chinese have built a new city by copying Paris-style buildings ??
All this is ridiculous and I will never want to go because everything is wrong ....

Hate to admit but it's better than aden houses
I wonder if maybe marketing them as like, hotel type villas or to movie studios for filming would work?🤔

Castels whithout proper roads..? In a civilized country you first do the roads...and then the houses.

Shame to be so old and closed-minded. The world belongs to no one yet we draw lines everywhere the rat brain mentality. SMH. Technology advances in a alarming rate but man seem to devolve much more rapidly. 🙁

Well the blunder is done this place can be turned into a tourist attraction if everyone of the castle is colorfully painted can be turned into a fairy tail land and instead of residential a hotal and market place imagination is the key to this scenario.

Rapunzel will have so many homes.. 🤗

They can paint the roof tops in different colours...

This copy paste style works in the gulf and it looks alright, but they have an incredibly neutral design... this is too jarring to repeat that much man...
it's me when i play AOE.
Bad design. They should make something like a themepark or a tourist spot on the other half of the land and just convert the houses into a hotel to make it profitable.
