Welcome to Brunswick, the southern neighbour of Aldoak and the breadbasket of Cattala. Brunswick is the biggest producer of fruits and vegetables in the Royal and Holy Kingdom, and is located only a few miles south-east of Jennai. This update is dedicated to Peter Reyes, former Vice President of the AIN.

Welcome back to Brunswick. Today we'll be looking at the southern area of Ontano Island, around the main town of Brunswick. Brunswick lies in the shadow of the mountainous northern town of Aldoak, and is the breadbasket of Cattala. The villages in the area are around 180 years old, and were built by British colonists.

 Welcome back to Cattala, and the Christmas special! It's time to take a look at the country  as it prepares for Christmas and New Year. For Cattalians, Christmas is all about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. However, the commercial elements of Christmas that exist across the Western World are also common in the Royal and Holy Kingdom.

Beautiful Mediterranean styled towns and cities. Always loved the alternative styled buildings you can get your hands on here.

And I see a Christmas tree! Somebody's being festive. 9.gif

Welcome back to Seina, in the north of Cattala. Since we last visited Seina, I’ve rebuilt the village and it’s completely changed. The medical centre is the most westerly building, with the village shops now located in one main building, opposite the café. I'm much happier with it this way.

seina-ent05-02.jpg

Now we’re going to look at the expansion of the village further south, using inspiration from Darmok’s Anduin Valley Revisited, which is in the Simtropolis Hall of Fame. Sadly we've arrived in the middle of a rain shower, which is expected to last until the New Year. Luckily it's not going to travel south into Celeste or Jennai to affect the New Years celebrations.

After some re-zoning and street construction, along with the demolition of the plazas, commercial premises are finally growing in Seina.

seina-ent05-08.jpg

To end with, an overview of Seina as a whole. I hope you enjoyed this update, I hope to get more of Seina completed soon!

Thanks for viewing, and keep commenting! I'm really pleased so many of you like Cattala. 44.gif

It's been a while since we visited Brunswick, and now we're moving into the central villages of the area. Unlike Seina in the north, Brunswick is in the middle of the sunniest winters on record, but some cold weather is expected to move in this weekend.

 This is the first time I've visited this CJ, and i'm impressed!  Personally, I don't have the patience to make cities with such distinct lacational themes, but I appreciate such cities when I see them!  Seina looks like a really picturesque village.  I'd love to park up my bicycle there and have a lazy coffee break ... maybe once it's stopped raining though 9.gif  I like your coverage of the expansion.  The last update is a good one too.  Your farm land looks great.  I like the graphics of your updates too.

 New Year has come for Cattala, and this year the nation is going all out to show the world that it's here to stay. From the stroke of midnight, a 15-minute display will light up the sky of every town and village across the nation. Here's a sneak peak of what's expected tonight.

Apologies about the quality, I'm not the best at adding fireworks effects to images.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and I wish you all a happy new year. Felice Anno Nuovo, from Cattala!

Now for the second and final part of the New Year celebrations from Cattala, this is a short overview of what we've seen so far from the Holy Regno. I hope you all enjoyed Cattala in 2010, and I'm looking forward to a great 2011 with the nation.48.gif

Schulmanator: Thank you very much for commenting.

 seina-ent06-01.jpg

Welcome back to Seina, in the heart of Cattala. The rain and fog has finally lifted, and it’s warming up again in Seina. 

seina-ent06-02.jpg

Today we’ll be looking at development along the green strip of land there.

seina-ent06-03.jpg

Development was first completed on a new petrol station for the community. It serves the B415, which is a link road to the A1 and M4.

seina-ent06-04.jpg

The second and most important part of the construction was the new village station. It was connected to a small line that diverts off of the main Central Line.

seina-ent06-05.jpg

A small housing development was built north of the station.

seina-ent06-06.jpg

Behind some of the homes was a new parking area for village residents and commuters.

seina-ent06-07.jpg

To the far north of the village, a Jennai-based property developer bought up a large area of land. So far, the villagers have seen very little work going on.

seina-ent06-08.jpg

To end with today, an overview of Seina.

seina-ent06-09.jpg

Now it’s time for you to decide where we build next in Seina. So post your replies and say either A, B, C, D or E!

I enjoyed the New Year updates! You have a lovely selection of towns and cities. Seina is expanding quickly! When do the skyscrapers come 9.gif

I vote A. There's a main road there that's shouting out for some more development. Having said that, I like the village as it is!

Wow - so many replies already. I'm very grateful to you all for commenting. 

psander5: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the New Years updates. Skyscrapers are quite a way away. Cattala is home to just over two million people, with 1 million in the city of Jennai which hasn't been built in-game yet. I'm aiming to do that this year, though. And thank you for the vote. 

Mightygoose: Haha, thank you and welcome to Cattala. We'll be seeing more of the raptor enclosure next update.

Algis242: Welcome back and thank you for voting. I'm glad you like the look of Seina.

Stanislav: Thank you for voting and for viewing!

Sirron Kcuhc: Thank you for voting, and yes there was some power lines there, bringing energy from Jennai.

 seina-ent07-01.jpg

seina-ent07-02.jpg

Welcome back to Seina, in the heart of Cattala. Sunny conditions continue to shine over the province, and now the voting results are in! Now it’s time to see where we’re building today…

seina-ent07-03.jpg

Is D! As you can see, construction has commenced and in the southern part of the new expansion, construction is finished.

seina-ent07-04.jpg

Work has been slow on the new land to the north, with only a handful of diggers and workmen on site most days. Work has ground to a halt for unknown reasons recently.

seina-ent07-05.jpg

In the centre of the village, some small homes were bought up by developers and replaced with in-demand luxury apartments. Here you can see work is on going near the high street.

seina-ent07-06.jpg

Now a look at the new district, which features the town’s first water storage tower. Water used to be pumped in from Calora, and now water can be collected in the village itself.

seina-ent07-07.jpg

Here we see the eastern part of the development, which boasts new local shops alongside the busy High Street that goes through the centre of the village.

seina-ent07-08.jpg

With all the construction projects occurring, a small industrial site was built near the Miatona land, and much of the local logs and building materials now come from this site.

seina-ent07-09.jpg

Now we see an overview of the unconstructed part of the new district – what do you suggest we build here? 

seina-ent07-10.jpg

 

To end with, an overview of the rapidly-expanding Seina village.
