Just had an explorer crash and all replies have been lost. As I don't feel as writing them again, I'll edit this post in the following days to reply all the comments posted in the latest update. Thanks for your understanding.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The exam season has just began and it's being tougher than expected. My ST Time has decreased and I'm sleeping less hours than I should just because I love this place. Blame the Industial Automation...

Fortunately, I had an update ready for this weeks, and here it is! Please enjoy!

Rankine's skyline would be as anonymous as the rest of northern NYC skyline if it wasn't by a few structures that give the city its character and make it recognizable for some miles away.

Nearly 3000 souls live in this building, resembling more a prison than an apartments building. The worst thing is that it also feels like a prison inside...

Rankine Estates appeared in the first update from this city, four tall 25-storey tenements stand where formerly stood the Josa, Inc. factory. Small electric devices where shipped from here to all the US east cost during the first half of the 20th century.

Nowadays, there are still factories and plants in Rankine, we saw one in the previous update and here's the most recognizable one around. ConEd's most infamous power plant is situated in Rankine; and despite the inhabitant's protests, its smokestacks keep vomiting particulates, carbon oxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides to the athmosphere and to Rankine's lungs.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I often pay small homages in my updates, try to discover which one is hidden in this update!

Nice entry, I like it. There are to many questions about, starting with where did you get all the buildings?

Lindo post, me gusta. Hay demasiadas preguntas acerca de esto, empezando por ¿De dónde obtuviste todos los edificios?

Me gusta! (Sorry that's [i]literally[/i] all I know in Spanish)

You've taken the generic apartments and given them all their own sad tale, works really well. I also like the drain kit and the Chicago style El-Rail.

Class!
I might have said this already, but I love the way your El-Rail fits in to the city!

As I've already said plenty of times, Tekindus, your vocabulary goes with your pictures so well...

You do realize there is a police station in the third picture, right? :P
