About This File

Fictional map loosely based around Trindade Island.

The island is located about 120 miles West of Ensenada, Mexico. Before the Spanish-American war, the island has sustained a populace of 5,300 people. However, during the war, America has completely taken over the island, and unfortunately, only 50 settlers were left by the end of the war due to rampant rebellion against American rule, forcing the US armed forces into murdering most residents. The island in the center of the waterfall has served as the downtown area of the Spanish settlement. No infrastructure, however, was left by the end of the war, due to the fact that most roads were unpaved, and no railroad was established. The harbor has been disassembled and recycled in 1955, and so were the most houses. In 2013, a highway has been built connecting the island to San Clemente Island near California. The highway is part of an American-Mexican off-coast highway, connecting Los Angeles, California, and Ensenada, Mexico. In 2015, the island has gained a lot of popularity amongst Californians, and the first official settlement was established on the island. The name "Las Kardes" it derived from the word kardex, which is Spanish for "archive" or "filing cabinet". It has been named as such due to the fact that colonization of the island post-Spanish-American War has been left off for a very long time.

The island's total land area is 10.2 squared kilometers. It is fairly mountainous and contains a fertile delta in the West. The delta is quite dated, having formed only after several thousand years of rock breakdown. Geologists predict all island breakdown around the delta in approximately 4,190 years. The rest of the lake will become saltwater by the end of the next 200 years. The mountains contain a limited amount of ore. On the north of the island is a waterfall with a limited amount of fertile land. Animal life is present, dwelling primarily near the fertile areas.

NOTE: High possibility of a default highway circulating around the island. Why? Because Americans love highways circulating around things, and because it's a very island-ish thing to have.

      Hello ST community,
      I will use this topic to show my upcoming, work in progress and finished mods for Cities: Skylines. Some may know, some may not - I make soviet style buildings and car models.
      Here is some showcase of my already made mods:
      Link to steam collection of my residential soviet buildings. Series 1-464LI
       
      Vehicle mods:
      Link to steam collection of my passenger cars mods
      Link to my steam collection of heavy land vehicles (buses, trucks)
       
      Here is link to my planned cars list in Google spreadsheet format
      Making of next car is currently not started yet. I will announce later what car it will be (French hatchback). 
      At the moment I make my 5 story soviet buildings (1-464LI) RICO compatible, it will feature left, middle and right (placement) sections.
       
      And last, I want to hear your opinions about car models triangle counts. ~2500 was chosen because of adding these cars to another city-builder game too. Choose acceptable triangle count for you. Multiple choice is allowed if e.g. acceptable is 500-3000

      Hello everyone!
      I've played a little bit with the nature and I felt that this might be something quite relaxing! Hope you will enjoy this short cinematic as I did!
      Cheers!

      Are there any games where you can be an totalitarian dictator? And Controlling everything and everyone?  Yes i know Tropico is such an game, but you are only an dictator of a small Island, not really a powerful ruler. Are there any games besides the tropico series where you can be an cruel dictator? Any games where you can rule over more than just a tiny Island as a dictator?

      5x5 is even more uncommon in my mind especially when it comes to custom content.

      As for the building they're amazing and some of your best work, and the fact they came out at the time CS was at its lowest point in the STEX I think these are a worthy addition.

      Neat idea, but man, this building didn't age well. :/

      Zero7 was a very underated BAT, his texture work here shows why he should be on the pantheon of amazing BATers.

      About 20 mins to render.  Lots of water tiles open for island building.  The beaches are smooth and waterfronts good for building large cities with ports.  The arrangement of tiles is not random but optimized for city organization.  The transitions in elevation follow natural contour lines.  The overall texture is smooth.    This is a good map for a long term project of building a large region of cities connected by sea, land and air.
