Gobar - Southside

Evillions

623 Views

Gobar is not a complete wealthy city like Dubai, this city comprises one of the largest slums in Onubis. Based on the 2010 census, there are over fifty-thousand slum residents living in Gobar. Surprisingly, gleaming skyscrapers were even built in the South-side.

Parisian architecture is somewhat common in Gobar because the city used to be the prime trading port in the Middle East. During the French's time in colonial Onubis, Parisian architecture was built so that the French feel closer to home.

Unfortunately, most of the Parisian architecture was demolished due to expansion. Recently, the Onubisian Historical National Register in order to preserve historical buildings.

[i]murrary:[/i] They are not remotely close to the Brazilian favelas, this is set in the Middle East and that the buildings are constructed so that they adapt to the environment.

[i]kakado_to_save:[/i] Thank you!

[i]hahei:[/i] Thanks mate!

[i]TurtleShroom: [/i] The lots were mostly made from this creator's Middle Eastern buildings; [url="http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&search_app=downloads&mid=10536"]Frogface[/url]. Additionally, search[b] HKBAT [/b]on the STEX and you will find a couple of Middle-Eastern suited buildings. If you are also requesting for the lots, they will not be released because I want this CJ to be unique from the rest. Think of it like marsh's MMP Frogface slums, they were never released because he wanted his CJ to be unique.

Even though It is somewhat different this makes me think of my Parent's home country of LEBANON, specifically of Beirut and its sub-areas. If were to ever visit the country depending on where you go you will see such places like in your city of gobar

godoi: This is not a mod, they are all add-ons that you can download from the STEX and LEX.
