About this City Journal

After buying CXL2011 the day it was released, I decided to work on one project: Lorville. After not actually featuring in my first SC4 CJ, Lorshire will now appear in this CXL CJ.

@ Damastius: Again, thank you!

Today's update is the first with the graphics settings on High. I hope the change improves the pictures.

Lorville never sleeps. In the day, the streets are packed with people and cars, and expansion occurs daily.

Shops are major businesses in the city.

Blocks of flats appear in the newer areas to provide lots of housing.

Lots of people live in the newly built 'super' housing estates away from the bustling high rise areas.

The highways are always very busy.

16451071409_5baf2611f9_o.jpg

There are houses out of the way of the havoc filled city streets...

... and the stadium attracts even more visitors to the city.

Aeroplanes are a common sight in the airspace above the city.

Grassy areas are preserved to give people a breath of fresh air.

Meanwhile, queues are forming on the streets at rush hour..

16637251385_03939d12cb_o.jpg

Even the 'quiet' backstreets are very noisy..

16429953427_326879a9da_o.jpg

Large bridges dominate the suburban skyline..

16449683548_bf2ec35088_o.jpg

Small shops open in the outer areas.

16636240912_274c923ffe_o.jpg

Trees.. and chimneys.

Not everything's so chaotic...

Thanks for looking,

Sam =)

@ Damastius: Thanks a lot!

Today's update focuses on the transportation of Lorville. This should be the last update with the Graphics settings on Low.. so keep an eye out for a change soon!

There are several bridges over the highway, and this is the oldest.

The highway leading up to the T-Interchange. Towards the right of the picture we see the Hill Statue, built in 1725 by Sir Joshua Hill.

We will look at the airport.

Night time at the terminal.

This is the Airport Highway junction.

One of the huge tunnels through the Lorville Mountains.

The Mountain Highway.

16449639008_c4044bc74f_o.jpg

A small mountain road that runs parallel to the highway. Before the highway was built, this was full of traffic out of the city.

Sunrise at the seaport.

That's it for today's update (and low graphics..)!

Thanks for looking,

@ TheMentalist: Thanks for looking! These pictures have been taken with the graphics settings on Low, and I'll change that for future updates.

@ Damastius: Thanks a lot! I've been a HUGE fan of your CJ, and it's great to see you here!

Today's Update is about the Residential areas in Lorville, and I'll also throw in a satellite view of the unfinished city as Damastius asked.

Some Pictures:

That concludes this small update. Thanks for looking!
