The city council thanks you for your votes on the avenue expansion project.  Of the planned routes:

fullscreencapture616201.jpg

The yellow, blue and pink routes have been constructed.  The brown route is currently under construction with plans to extend it further bordering the engineering univeristy.  With the avenue expansion projects nearly completed, the council is debating on how to extend the tram line.

fullscreencapture712201.jpg

The pink route show here.

fullscreencapture712201.jpg

Here is the corner of the pink and blue routes.

fullscreencapture716201.jpg

Construction is underway for the avenue to replace the local streets.

fullscreencapture712201.jpg

The yellow route entends through the traffic cirlce, the purple route has not been extended as far orginally planned.

fullscreencapture712201.jpg

With the yellow route completed new sky scrapers and high rise buildings have sprung up.

The avenues have had the result desired.  Traffic now flows through this part of the city much more efficently.  Farms have been threatened and more developers are offering large sums of money for the farm land neighboring the expanding city.

fullscreencapture712201.jpg

Two farms were bought by the city for the expansion of the avenues.

The city is now faced with what to do with this now vacant land.  Two farms in this area remain, should development include these two farms? or just the available land?  Some council members want to construct a city services complex to the right of the traffic circle.  With the growing population the demand has increased for health, education, and protective services.  One service has recently been completed, the engineering university.

fullscreencapture712201.jpg

The new university is considering a partnership with local farmers for access to farm land if a degree program in agriculture is offered.

fullscreencapture716201.jpg

With the avenue extended the forested land has been sold to a commercial developer.

fullscreencapture717201.jpg

As the construction continues a small commercial strip develops on the corner.

The tram yellow line has been given approval and final designs for expansion along the avenue on the other side of the ciy.

fullscreencapture717201.jpg

The staging area for tram construction.

fullscreencapture718201.jpg

A large plaza is now in the location of the construction equipment staging area.

fullscreencapture718201.jpg

The yellow line extends along the hightech industrial avenue and ends at the rail crossing.

fullscreencapture718201.jpg

With the completion of the yellow line, new highrise developments have moved in.

fullscreencapture718201.jpg

With many of the farmers resistant to selling farm land, many of the homes have been redeveloped into apartment buildings and midrises into highrise buildings.  Pressure is increasing to begin development on the farm land neighboring the combined transit station.

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

Traffic has increased on this street.  The city council has plans to place a tram on street or tram on road line shown here with a station to entice more commuters to travel by tram rather than car.  The park will be replaced with a loop and station, trees will be planted in the middle of the loop.

fullscreencapture718201j.jpg

Its time for your vote:

A) Do nothing

B) Tram on street

C) Tram on road

D) Dont remove the park, remove the street and plant trees!

Samerton  &  clarkjordan12345   A rural highway could still work and be implemented later, something I never thought about.  We'll see what happens with long term development.

Thank you for your views, votes and comments.

Development has continued the port in Winthrop.  Recently the container and cargo port have been completed.  Port Authorities have plans to develop a bulk materials port for resources such as coal, oil, and iron ore.  For now with the completion of the port, construction on the commercial warf and fishing docks has been scheduled to begin soon.  Rail and expressway connections remain to be finished.  WInthrop will need a large population to support the expanded port and industrial areas.

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

Ships await approval to dock at the newly finished port.

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

At the end of the man made peir cargo ships dock.

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

Here is the high capacity container docks where three ships can dock and containers can be transported by road or rail.

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

Three more container ships dock on the far side of the port.

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

The shipping channel is already full with ocean going super ships awaiting a free dock.

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

fullscreencapture623201.jpg

The completed port has numerous rail connections for the moving freight.  The expressway remains to be compleated.  Winthrop sold large numbers of bonds to complete this port.  Officials are betting on becoming the freight transportion hub of this part of the region.   Winthrop needs further expansion of residential and commercial areas to be able to repay bond debt without raising taxes or cutting services.  With the port development taking four years, only sixteen years remain to increase cashflow to repay debt.

With the recent growth of Cantondale, the logging industry of Potsdam, and the mining opperations of Boulder Village; the growing region requires a deep sea port.  Welcome to Winthrop.  The first coastal community in the region begins with a small village set up on a the top of a hill.  Construction of high volume freight line, high volume freeway and the port have begun.

fullscreencapture662010.jpg

Using the wind from the sea, the community has harvested it for electrical power.

fullscreencapture662010.jpg

A small farming community is the first to establish.

fullscreencapture652010.jpg

The sims set up residency on the top of the small hill.

fullscreencapture652010.jpg

Farms are not the only source of employment or industry.

fullscreencapture652010.jpg

The consolidated school has a local football team.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

The high volume rail line emerges from a tunnel making its way to the coast and the port.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

The train station has been replaced.  The village council has decided to relocate it at a later time.

fullscreencapture619201.jpg

Construction begins on developing a commercial waterfront.

fullscreencapture619201.jpg

The high volume rail line is still under construction.  A rail spur breaks away to the coast.

fullscreencapture619201.jpg

Work begins on the construction of the the freeway.

fullscreencapture619201.jpg

The temporary port will soon be over shaddowed by the new high volume deep sea port.

fullscreencapture619201.jpg

All available back fill from neighboring towns and villages are sent via rail for the expansion of peirs for the deep sea port.

A logging company has set up opperations and company homes.

fullscreencapture617201k.jpg

The company housing units for the loggers.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

A plup process plant and rail access for the saw mill.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

A lumber yard turns fallen trees into wood products to be shipped around the region.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

Potsdam not only has a lumber industry, but also agriculture.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

Potsdam is still a small community, with only 10,000 sims.

fullscreencapture111020.jpg

The farmers dont yet feel pressure from the expanding residents.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

A suburban rail station for connections to industrial areas and Cantondale.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

Sims love their homes surrounded by high and thick trees.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

Potsdam still enjoys close connections with clean industry.

fullscreencapture617201.jpg

Both the industry and commercial  sectors are placing pressure on the village council for the ability to expand.

Returning to Cantondale with word they have large scale construction projects in the works.  Expansion continues on the highway which will soon connect Cantondale with Potsdam.  However engineer's inexperience with designing road way, construction continued before complete design plans were finalized.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

Construction workers begin to prep the land for the road surface.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

Engineers change the plans after being faced with how to route the highway in the close proximity to the river.

fullscreencapture613201q.jpg

The road is pushed as far as possible away from the river.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

Removal of the original east bound lanes make way for the new design.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

Progress is made, but now engineers are confronted with the hill in front of road.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

Construction workers finish laying sod up to the rail viaduct, waiting for the finished plans.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

The road plans changed once again, and engineers went with two ramps to climb the slopes preventing progress.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

The finished expansion along the river banks.  Potsdam is nearly connected by road.

fullscreencapture613201f.jpg

The finished construction zone.

fullscreencapture613201.jpg

Meanwhile, construction finished on the trumpet interchange which will connect downtown Cantondale to the highway.

Returning to the suburban district on Cantondale, we see further expansion of the middle class up the slopes.  All of this development has taken place with no long term traffic plans.  There exist no main collector roads bringing traffic into the commercial district.  Traffic problems begin to present themselves.  Civil engineers must find solutions.

fullscreencapture613201w.jpg

The recently finished water town sits above the old towers which await demolition.

fullscreencapture616201.jpg

Streets are paved for a new water side residential community.

With the mistakes made during the expressway expansion, Cantondale decided to fund the construction of a technical school specializing in engineering.  The town board hopes this investment will result in better designed transportation networks in the future.  A site has been chosen for the technical school.  The public wants the industry further away from the town center.

fullscreencapture616201.jpg

The industrial buildings above the train station will be demolished making way for higher education.

fullscreencapture616201.jpg

Construction begins on two site.  Rumors suggest the site on the right will expand closer to the farms.

With the expansion of middle class homes up the hill side traffic has increased in this area:

fullscreencapture616201.jpg

Expansion of the avenues are suggested.

fullscreencapture616201.jpg

Four routes are suggested to solve traffic problems and connect the midrise  district to the town center.

With the town council not yet ready to repeat the same mistakes with the expressway expansion, they turn to you.  They seek the advice of fellow city leads.  Vote for your preference in avenue expansion.  Votes will be taken until the next Cantondale update.

A new mining village recently sprung up.  Word of Boulder Village only recently reached the rest of the Peninsula Ridge Region when transportation networks were connected.  Nestled in the vally of two mountian peaks, early residents discovered large quantities of coal and clay.  After this discovery, those who could bought up the land where coal was discovered.  A company mining village was soon constructed.

The company set up company housing for mine workers.

fullscreencapture614201w.jpg

With the narron vally, the company houses spring up further down the vally.

fullscreencapture614201.jpg

Housing is foriced to back up the the main rail line.  The trees are not thick enough to keep the noise down from constant coal shipments.

fullscreencapture614201.jpg

As the main road heads south to the bottom of the vally, farms find more flat land to develop.

fullscreencapture614201w.jpg

A tunnel is completed for a direct route east to the other side of the mountian.

fullscreencapture614201.jpg

Mining opperations quickly pick up, two massive piles of coal await the coal washing

The Town of Cantondale has full coffers and have chosen three large scale projects to improve the growing town. 

fullscreencapture692010.jpg

The continues expansion of the first divided highway in the region.  Engineers must make adjustments to the rail viaduct.

fullscreencapture692010.jpg

The rail line viaduct extended into the cut hill making room for the highway expansion.

fullscreencapture692010.jpg

Retaining walls have been constructed to keep the soil from sliding into the lanes of traffic.

fullscreencapture692010.jpg

Engineers must now figure out what to do about the water infront of the highway expansion.

fullscreencapture692010.jpg

Noise barriers were errected to reduce noise from the highway and the rail line.

fullscreencapture652010.jpg

With the red line expanding, it was prudent to build a new combined rail and tram station.

fullscreencapture611201.jpg

Crews begin to level land high up on the hill side for the new water tank.

fullscreencapture611201.jpg

The tower crane arrives in preperation for construction on the new water tank.

fullscreencapture611201k.jpg

The new water tank is finished, now water pumps and a power source are being built.

fullscreencapture611201.jpg

Four high capacity water pumps have been installed.

fullscreencapture611201.jpg

Solar pannel provide power to the pumps to fill the tank during the day during max usage, the new storange tank ensures water is available through the night.

With expanding transportation networks, and a new water distribution system, Cantondale is ready for future growth.

Thanks for the comments and views.  More coverage to come.

A second building catches fire, this time the firefighters were on route still thinking they could save the first house fire.

fullscreencapture632010.jpg

Yet a second house is lost to the flames.

Residents are not pleased with the existing fire coverage.

fullscreencapture632010i.jpg

New homes go up once the rubble is cleared, and the fire department sets up another fire house.

The mayor needed his seclusion, and with the rapid development of the village, he moved his up into the hills.  He sold some of his complex to developers, and the rest he sold to the village.

fullscreencapture523201.jpg

Now the mayor can look down upon his minons.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

A new train station was needed with the large volume of passengers commuting between towns on the recently completed rail line.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

A tram line was the council's choice for a transit option in the rapid developing region.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

The red line expands through the commercial district.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

The red line now connects to the recently built rail station.  The neighboring commercial district expands.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

The mayor insists  that pond from his residential compound be preserved even with the development.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

The red line ends at the village's new cricket pitch.

fullscreencapture524201.jpg

The red line has induced growth in the commercial district due to the ease of transportation.

fullscreencapture525201.jpg

With the recent completition of the red line, the village council is now bickering over what type of street car to use.

fullscreencapture526201.jpg

Our last visit in Cantondale was full of rain.  This wet spell of weather provided a large bountiful harvest.  When food prices fell, the population boomed.  While exploring Potsdam, Cantondale is no longer a small farming village.

fullscreencapture521201.jpg

Cantondale's residential area has expanded, the wealthy prefer not to live directly next to the farm.

fullscreencapture521201.jpg

Neighboring farms are starting to feel pressure from the expanding village center.

fullscreencapture521201.jpg

Farmers find it lucrative to sell their property for new developments.

fullscreencapture521201.jpg

The farmers who own the land around the pond choose to develope the land themselves and build homes for themself.

fullscreencapture521201.jpg

New houses spring up quickly, everyone wants to live near the water.

fullscreencapture521201.jpg

Construction on the next expansion has begun.

Aided by its acceptance of industry, Potsdam has seen large growth.  The village center has expanded in addtion to the surrounding farms.  With no direct route to Cantondale, residents of Potsdam still need to produce their own food.

The industry has expanded greatly, construction has begun on establishing a rail network with Cantondale for the trade of food for manufactured goods.

fullscreencapture119200.jpg

A passenger station was added near the expanding residential area.

Residents are concerned that the pond at the end of the river wont be so small if all this rain continues.

cantondale19.jpg

The village council saved its pennies and bought some of the nearby farm so main street could be extended.  This allowed for more development.

cantondale16.jpg

The Rogers family was able to buy a second farm with the sale of part of their first farm.

cantondale12.jpg

The relentless rain caused a pond to form in the middle of the forest near the village center.

The farmers and residents are concerened that all this wet weather might have disasterous results on Cantondale.

cantondale14.jpg

The clouds break long enough for a pilot to snap this bird's eye view.

Word has spread that a new village has been found close by.  With this news the farmers want a rail line built to increase the speed at which they can bring their crops to market.  The residents near the village center want measure taken to ensure their new homes will not be washed out when the next heavy rains come, and when the new pond expands.

Cantondale expands

prro.jpg

The village of Cantondale has grown and the mayor has built his McMansion on a large plot of land he purchased.

The Mayor has his own wheat field for his micro brews and hunts on the back of his property.

The village and village center have grown.  Cantondale is now home to over 2000 residents.  Even a church has moved in near the village center. 

Citizens are now demanding more services.  They complain about everything.  The police coverage is shoddy, no one has a diploma, the farmers dont have a means to ship their products long distance, and there is no local clinic to mend those clumsy sims.

What happened to the days of parents teaching their kids, farmers with shot guns breaking up fights and keeping the hooligans away?  Such needy sims.

The farmers have made paths out in the forest for hunting season.

They even found a small lake and stream which the prospectors must have over looked.

Weather update: heavy rain has been pouring down on the region.  A low pressure system has stalled over the hills of Cantondale.

The rain is just as heavy in the hills, hopefully a mudslide does not result from this wet season.

The village board only has so much surplus to spend on the needy sims.  What should they spend it on?

A) Schools (No sim left behind)

B) Local clinic (we must save the weak, screw Darwin!)

C) Find a neighboring town and connect by rail (who doesnt like to ride the rails)

D) Increase police coverage (those krispy kremes arent going to eat them selves)

That farm can be found in one of CSX's packs over on SC4devotion.  It might be this one.  I dont know for sure, I just have a bunch of his files.

Prospectors land on the beaches and are sent out to scour the land for resources and suitable locations for villages.  Canton was the first prospector to return with good news.  He discovered a fresh water spring and a deciduous forest suitable for a farming community.

Cantondale has been founded.  Roads and a water tower are quickly built.

Residents move in, and farms take advantage of the spring and the fertile soil from the deciduous forest.

Even some hooligans have found a home and are soon up to some mischief.

Stay tuned for more growth.

As I have been away from SC4, please feel free to provide me with any suggestions or plugins to use.  I have spent two weeks downloading plugins, but I am sure I dont have all the good ones.
