Greater Leeds Transit - Part 3


Posted by Big_Tree_Z , Jan-20 2012 - * * * * *
This 3rd and final part of Greater Leeds Transit follows one of the highway routes from the Southern agricultural surrounds of the city, North into the outer fringes of the city and into the heart of the city itself. This is only one of a number of routes into/out of the city, if you're interested in getting an idea of the other routes, check Greater Leeds Transit - Part 2 and look at the transit map. If you like this post, or any others, please rate, comment or click the +1. Thanks again... Go to this entry →

Hey again, just the next part of Greater Leeds Transit, focusing on my rail transport systems and also featuring a transit map of Central Leeds. My rail experiences a high amount of usage, with alot of the stations (even large stations, off of the main route) taking much higher than capacity, it does, however, for the most part work quite well. Again, please rate, +1 and comment if you like it (or dislike, I like the feedback), or check out my other posts. A transit map of Central Leeds, Cya... Go to this entry →

Ports and Industry


Posted by Big_Tree_Z , Jan-13 2012 - - - - - -
Here's some of the industrial areas that produce the things that companies sell and sims buy. Leeds has one major port, split over two areas; Port Wales - West is the manufacturing port (cars, steel, etc.), Port Wales - East deals with the higher tech and generally more fragile exports and imports (electronics, etc.).I appreciate your views and any comments.

Rural Life


Posted by Big_Tree_Z , Jan-12 2012 - - - - - -
Leeds isn't composed just of the city. Although the vast majority of the population lives within urban areas, a significant portion of Greater Leeds' area is occupied by agriculture, primarily on the Southeastern Plains. Agriculture also accounts for a large amount of Greater Leeds' economy, providing around 50,000 full-time, part-time and casual jobs.Thanks for viewing my "rural post". Rural areas are not my forte, but I do enjoy making them so any feedback regarding how... Go to this entry →

Hi,Welcome to my first post for my first journal, I appreciate any views and comments, especially regarding GIMP (the program I used to edit some of the photos) which I am new to.This journal will be a collection of pictures from my region, Leeds (nothing like the real city), which is now as filled as I wish it to be, both in terms of tiles and population, with the latter being just over 1,000,000 sims.I'm not a "professional" Sim City player. I play when I feel like it and this r... Go to this entry →
