Hey all! So if you're interested, here is a previous journal of mine from CitiesXL:  made that in 2010... but yes now onto SimCity...!

 

City of Bensville

This is the city of Bensville...

The humble beginnings of a small suburb outside a much larger city that provides coal mining and nuclear power...

Bensville will be a cultural, education and commercial centre for the region. As well as the regional time-keeper! (Big Ben hohoho  :rofl: )

The city has a number of wealthy residents. Their streets are lined with fountains and stone statues.

Bensville is a very green city... for now... 

 


 

Part Two.

As the city continues to grow - so do the job opportunities. Workers from neighboring cities catch the train or bus to get to the offices.

'Town Square' is a central open space in the city that divides East and West. It will soon house a university for the region's students.

Mister Mayor lives in a giant mansion at the rich-end of town. Down his avenue is the city church.

As traffic begins to increase, the single green avenue that leads from the city entrance to the commercial district is slowly clogging up... some new transport alternatives are in the works!
 

 
Part 3

Whilst modern skyscrapers burst into the skyline, the city's Eastern end tries to maintain its heritage roots with low density.

The university is constructed in 'Town Square'. Business and traffic picks up!

The once slow-paced city of Bensville has turned into a bustling metropolis. The West End provides luxury apartments whilst the Eastern end supplies a number of high-wealth office jobs. An old-city in the middle maintains the historical buildings from earlier on.

Coal mining and nuclear power - what an odd combination! 

 

The shots look great, I particularly like the one with Big Ben in the foreground at night. 

 

Like your region choice too - Horizon Archipelago is a personal favourite. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the development!
