About This File

I wanted a region that was realistic, but worked well in SC4 (I find regions based on real places aren't always that fun to play). I couldn't find anything that fit what I wanted, so I made my own. I made the base terrain in Photoshop, and did the rest in the the SC4 editor. The mountains are taken from real-world data and that's what makes them realistic (though I edited them a whole bunch too).

The screenshot was taken with Teirusu's fantastic [url="http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/21316-terrain-mod-arctic-snowcapped-terrain/"]Arctic/Snowcapped Mod[/url], and Peg's excellent [url="http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/11836-peg-water-mod-brigantine/"]Brigantine water mod[/url].

[i]Edit: apparently rendered cities are not allowed on Simtropolis, so only the .sc4m is available now. You must import it with SC4Mapper.[/i]

      Construction begins

      cXNwfYW.jpg

      The new Island, acquired by Blackwater and absorbed in to their council's area of influence, is prepared for construction.

      U2rvLHr.jpg

      A wider road of approach is built, and the trees are cut down. There's an area of Oil on the island that's been left alone for now, as no-one can work out what to do with it. The old owners or occupants are given offers they cannot refuse to leave, so they all did.

      Green wave

      Gyy912T.jpg

      The residents of Blackwater Isle start turning their attention to the industry, which is squatting on their shoreline and making a large mess.

      gWJduyL.jpg

      The recycling centre is also expanded further.

      Industrial expansion

      orkyJZw.jpg

      Rilgar Island decides to zone for more industry, in anticipation of Blackwater shunning theirs, to try and take a chunk of those taxes.

      SVsAiur.jpg

      A highway connection is set up, albeit a temporary one.

      Construction begins

      dS958n5.jpg

      Whilst some of the money to build the roads mysteriously disappeared, the sole construction company managing to get the contracts starts to build on the island.

      Power situation

      Lyy1WfL.jpg

      The power stations are starting to get old, and cannot cope with the new levels of power Rilgar and Blackwater require.

      20gQtDY.jpg

      So a larger, more efficient station is built on Rilgar, near the industrial zone already present. It's hoped the Industry might expand nearby.

      Blackwater Isle upgrades

      c8wVUwy.jpg

      The main street becomes 6 lane, to accompany the traffic of the ever increasing density, and to provide for the new buildings.

      ljX7DlG.jpg

      The old Industrial area is dismantled, and the clean up begins. It might take a while, this filth has been there for years.

      UbOKCGU.jpg

      The industry wastes no time moving to Rilgar, where they don't have to pay so much protection money to certain businessmen.

      jx6zR08.jpg

      They even expand near the coal power station.

      Expansion

      KA7rE5c.jpg

      High density starts to appear on the second isle, amid lots of union action and more corruption. Blackwater can't seem to shake its roots that easily.

      TSBgBFc.jpg

      Freshly cleaned, residents and businesses start to move to the old industrial port.

      vDidO6Y.jpg

      The oil still hasn't been worked on, and neither has the little tree park. Any construction companies trying to gain the rights start to have unfortunate accidents

      VuxAcZc.jpg

      To accompany these accidents, a new hospital is built over the river from Blackwater, on Rilgar.

      C69WXuW.jpg

      Industrial expansion continues unabated on Rilgar however, and a train line is introduced to try and lower the traffic on the highway. The Power plant is also expanded to cope with the extra people.

      YU1coCT.jpg

      High density arrives in the old port area, as we see an insurance sca... accidental fire occur in the foreground.

      The Cleanup begins

      7VMfkEW.jpg

      Starting to get a bit sick of this overflow of crime, Rilgar builds an actual police station on their border to Blackwater, and starts to invest in education.

      8jvnEFm.jpg

      These attempts encourage more High density commercial to arrive on Blackwater.

      lF61nuL.jpg

      It also encourages some more expansion on the second isle.

      Sewage woes

      C4fUM8x.jpg

      The crap lake starts to overflow, so the pipes need to be turned off. It's also started to seep in to nearby groundwater, so residents there aren't happy.

      Vb4EoAn.jpg

      The Kogor refinery is built, on a completely uninhabited island in the bay off of the second isle. Hopefully this is a more lasting solution than crap lake.

      Growth

      p1pE50h.jpg

      The hills above the old beachfront start to see small houses appearing.

      fHyo2PP.jpg

      With an actual police force nearby, construction starts to begin on the wooden patch and near the oil reserves, as the accidents have mysteriously become less prevalent.

      Hope

      3tHx4p0.jpg

      Crap lake is becoming cleaner, which symbolises Blackwaters attempts to re-invigorate its corrupt image and past. Will it succeed?
