Entries in this City Journal

matthiasm

Bahlsberg: AF6 Gross Coldiz air force head base. On the other side of Bahlsberg mountain is the “Army officers academy”

GCBL1.jpg

DeLorean: “Southmore Island”. This long thin island stretches trough fife city's and is well protected on the south since there are massive waves hitting the shore

GCDLR3.jpg

Silvaplana: In this high altitude is still a well developed city with commercial, industrial and residential zones. One recreational spot is Plana lake, for pedal boating and walk trail

GCSP1.jpg

Chalo n: On t he west island is Chalon. In the city you will find “le Chalon sur Saon” historic commercial and residential quarter. It is not actually historic, it has been purpose built then years ago. Only the church is original

GSCL1.jpg

Seefeld: Our way of government controlled agriculture. The farmers are employed by the state. The “ministry of agriculture” is planing together with the farmers what when and how much can be grown in the season. Around UCR are massive greenhouse farms who can produce vegetable all the year

GCSF1.jpg

Löwenhorst: this is a big industrial city. It also holds the commercial port hub for the east island. On the other side of the motorway is the “Löwen Center” shopping park. The mall contains amusement park and a all year ski run

GCLH1.jpg

Erzberg: One more industrial city south west. In the picture is a LPG bottling plant with train filling station. Massive plant owned by “Northstar automotive” producing engines including assembly. There is also an side canal towards San Bartolomeo bay, it is for the Car - and passenger- ferry’s. OK: Seebrück has a canal for the west coast transit, but this passage is always jammed by commercial ships. Therefore “Coldiz Fähr Betriebe” has decided to built this canal only for ferry use to keep up whit the schedule

GCEB1.jpg

Aghulas: here we have the GC space program run by Coldiz space agency (CSA). The crafts can be booked by communications firms and university around the world for there satellites and science crafts. Biggest customer is of course the CI firm ColSat

GCAG1.jpg

Kissinger: Kissinger pier, on the hill lies “White house”, it belongs to the royal family

GCKI1.jpg

Thank you all for your interest: "We meet again don't know where, don't know when"

VTD1%20add.jpg

At Val Trass named after Trass river, the electric dam “VTD 1” is a great example for non nuclear power source.

GCdammmosaik.jpg

Reached by a steep mountain road lies next to VTD 1 a assembly point for guidet tour through the dam.

GCdamm2.jpg

waffenstein%20add.jpg

Wonderful example for after tough is Waffenstein port. Here we have a pic around twenty years ago. Since then the volume has risen massively.

GCWF1.jpg

The Coldiz commercial harbour holding (CCHH for you) has decided to cope best with land recovery. ...

GCWF2.jpg

….And this is what you get. A cargo and import car's hub

for the region.

DeLorean Racetrack

DLRadd.jpg

Race day at DeLorean Racetrack: As you know, Gross Coldiz is densely populated. This shows also here at the Racetrack, not many International tracks are cut trough by highway twice.

GCDLR2.jpg

Today is the “Grand Tourissmo challange”. Private owners of Super cars are competing each other.

GCDLR5.jpg

Start up: ready on the track, stopwatch on zero, spectators filled up with hot dog and drinks. Lets rock!!!

GCIA%20titel.jpg

The big one: Gross Coldiz international airport.

The mosaic cuts trough six different city's and I had to paste them together. I think the hassle was worth it.

Feel free to click to enlarge!!

Gross%20Coldiz%20Airport.jpg

Due to the unique position it had to be long. Therefore the main terminal is the longest building in all of United Coldiz Region:

- North is the arrival and Departure terminals. Enclosed are multi story car parking, train arrival, monorail station and tube entry.

- West is the cargo terminal with CCHH short shipment port.

- Further down are the private jet lot's.

- South are fore technical hangar: for full repair, the planes will be flown to Coldiz Island Hammerstein to be serviced at CATS (see the previous CI journal).

- Also further south is the kerosene storage tanks, filled up by tanker ships.

- South west are hotels convention centre and ferry arrival. Aviation operation is done at mid west, including catering and a small overflow terminal.

GCEM20.jpg

Just a close look at the Arrival and Departure terminal. It is a massive bottle neck, but I think that’s the best I can do. What do you think, any advise for better use of space?

matthiasm

Kaiserwinter%20titel.jpg

Dawn in Kaiserwinter: We are looking at the fifth and last mega city in GC. Like mentioned in the intro, this is the historic sight of old Kaiserwinter castle.

GCKW6.jpg

Here you see down town avenue in KW as its called among locals. The canal well has its water drained of the Willson river.

GCKW5.jpg

Around “Wilson river” is Will's amusement park.

GCKW3.jpg

North hill of KW is old Bohemia. Sitting on top at the steep hills of Bohemia mountain, it looks like way out of the big town.

GCKW4.jpg

Here you can see that Bohemia mountain is cutting right trough the whole city. Splitting old Kaiserwinter on the left, down town KW on the bottom, new KW on the right and the industrial zone trough the middle.

GCKW2%20mosaik.jpg

The sound of the name sounds already old fashioned and historic, don't be fooled by that. You can have a lot of diverse funn here, like China town...

GCKW1.jpg

….Or a classy concert at the Semper opera. Next to it is the Royal orangery botanic garden. ….

GCKW7.jpg

…. Or having a exciting game of football at C-NOC stadium.

GCKW8.jpg

Next on the journal of Gross Coldiz: The mayor hub for air traffic. Gross Coldiz International Airport (GCIA)

Sanbartolomeo%20titel.jpg

Good afternoon: Welcome to San Bartolomeo, the “relaxed city” as its legacy goes.

That’s because there are less corporate zones and more low rise resident areas then many other mega city’s.

GCSB2.jpg

View towards the south at Crown bay island whit is public transport hub.

GCSB5.jpg

We’re in luck today: moored at the Diano marina pier is MS Rio. Owned by a philanthropist from San Bartolomeo, rebuilt for classic cruise around the canal and many islands at United Coldiz Region.

GCSB4.jpg

On the foot of Bartolomeo hill sits “Samba palace” the weekend retreat for the Royal family. Fitted with helicopter pad and enclosed pond in the court yard. Surrounded by the four Royal member houses and if you look closely, bee hives belonging to the Duke of Coldiz. He produces its own honey witch is used every morning for breakfast on the Royal table and as personal presents for guests.

GCSB6.jpg

East side of SB is CCHH commercial harbour with goods shipment and fluid cargo loading station.

GCSB9.jpg

Close by the commercial harbour is the media centre for X9 media. Not a Coldiz invest firm: it belongs to the national media mogul Robert Dermock.

GCSB7.jpg

Same part of San Bartolomeo is “Furioso sports club”. City owned sports ground and accessible by club members of Furioso association.

GCSB10.jpg

Some history for a change. This is an old picture from the Dovo Ferraldi fort. Nestled in a wast agriculture zone, it used to be the harvest chambers of the region.

GCSB13%20alt.jpg

Today its a tourist attraction and school excursion hot spot to shape up on cultivating knowledge. Conveniently accessible by funicul cart cart or a long winded B road.

GCSB11.jpg

Full view of fort Dovo Ferraldi.

GCSB8.jpg

Near Dovo Ferraldi is an outpost for the fort. In the olden days it was used for smoking sausages and cheese production.

GCSB12.jpg

The day and the entry comes to an end.

SB%20mosail%20heller.jpg

CU on the next topic from Kaiserwinter.

matthiasm

Thank you for all your kind comments and interest in my CJ. I hope you will enjoy the upcoming ones too.

Marras%20titel.jpg

Night stroll at the pier is certainly beautiful, and thanks to the UCR good Police services, save.

GSMS18.jpg

Welcome to Marras: this part of Gross Coldiz turned out to be tricky to develop with a descend infrastructure due the the steep mountains surrounding.

The CENIT centre surrounded by white park and “the bean” monument at night.

GSMS17.jpg

Cruise terminal at Isabella pier: fully develop with check in terminal and easy access pier gate. Most favourite cruise program is: Marras- Kaiserinter- Pacific Gate- Liveras- towards Ireland, on board the MC Lost Paradise

GCMS12.jpg

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

Let's begin the day easy. Have a cup of coffee and the local newspaper.

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

Whats%20up%20news.jpg

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

City council, justice hall and corporate council at Marras with the flag of United Coldiz Region in the middle.

GCMS11.jpg

White park by day. I guess you can see why its called like that.

GCMS13.jpg

On the left corner you see the spire of UPE (University for professional excellence). Up hill a small part of “Riverbank amusement park”. The other part on the other bank is accessible by cable cart.

GCMS8.jpg

St Bernard church positioned on a rock in the Grand canal, only accessible by foot.

GCMS10.jpg

Part of the Industrial zone at Marras. Not only is the east island split by Bloomberg creek, but also a deep canyon within.

GCMS5.jpg

Iron ore mine at Marras mountain.

GCMS7.jpg

On the opposite canal side you will find a idyllic island only accessible by a small bridge on the Waffenstein side, or by boat. Here you see Chateau de Chile, the home of the Duke of Marras.

GSMS14.jpg

On Ill de Chile you also find this historic shopping street filled with luxury shops. On the other side of the street is Asakusa shrine.

GSMS16.jpg

I conclude this entry with the east island view of Marras.

Mejdan%20titel.JPG

Good Morning: Welcome to Mejdan the corporation capital of Gross Coldiz. The title picture shows the real Meydan clubhouse in Dubai, witch I have fond memories of the World cup from.

The heart of Mejdan, Goldofin pond with its entertaining water- laser show every hour. To your left under construction: Burj Kalifa. I will update you when its finished.

GCMJ10.jpg

It's hammer time. The offices filling up and the town comes alive.

GCMJ5.jpg

Closer look of Goldifin district shows “Da Zhong Hua Plaza tower” office and hotel building.

GCMJ13.jpg

You may noticed this odd island. It's Mejdan resort. Famous for horse racing and massif beach front. It also includes serviced apartments run by Crown Coldiz plaza hotel and resort (Coldiz invest group).

GCMJ3.jpg

Start and finish line at Mejdan clup house.

GCMJ7.jpg

Massif traffic infrastructure is essential for every mega city, due to the steep hills, the Monorail system has to take a extensive route to gain altitude.

GCMJ4.jpg

Sport and relaxation is essential to keep my hard working Sims happy and fit.

GCMJ12.jpg

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

MejSan%20airport.jpg

Mejdan and San Bartolomeo are the joined home of the Mej-San european airport. Conveniently located for business traveller and tourist from Europe. The area also includes a limited capacity airfreight centre and Royal Coldiz air force base.

SanMej%20Airport.jpg

Terminal 1 with Monorail, train and street connection, also includes Millennium hotel and conference tower.

GCMJ6.jpg

AF5 air force base at Mej-San airport is used for fast interception aircraft and coast guard surveillance.

GCMJ14.jpg

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

Thank you for your interest in the Mejdan journal entry. I hope you enjoyed it.

Mejdan%20mosaik.jpg

CU soon for the journal of Marras city

matthiasm

Welcome to the journal of the last region remaining on United Coldiz Region.

Thank you for your interest of the other CJ as Coldiz and Coldiz Island. I hope you will enjoy this one too.

As ever: I want to say thanks to all the great LOT-ers and BAT-ers out there. I myself are trying to design my own BAT's on GMAX, but I'm not yet sophisticated enough to post on Simtropolis.

Ladies and gentleman: I proudly present the Simcity 4 rush hour journal of

Gross Coldiz

GC%20titel.jpg

Some facts and figures: The total population of all 82 small, large and Mega-city's together is 2'096'886.

The geography is quiet remarkable. The Region is split in half by the Merrat canal, or as the nicknames goes: the grand canal.

The west island is mostly flat, and therefore Well used in agriculture. The north island is very mountainous, and well known as mining region.

Capital is Emirat right in the middle of GC. Part of the city is used for Gross Coldiz international airport, the gateway to the world.

The biggest corporate city is with no doubt Mejdan. It is also partly used for the European air travel hub, and the home of Mejdan horse race track witch is a purpose built island.

Our historic city of Kaiserwinter used to be the winter home for the old Royal household. Today the castle serves as National historic museum.

GCsat%20map.jpg

  1. Capital of GC: Emirat:

Emirat%20titel.jpg

The glowing lights in dark night fill the city of Emirat with life.

At the Rialto spire tower the crown illuminated in different colour serves as a beacon in this forest of skyscrapers at Argo place.

GCEM4.jpg

Locking closer to a residential and hotel area at

Naing Road shows the early birds in the city.

GCEM7.jpg

Quick look to the International airport in Emirat where the

operation runs from 5am toll 12pm.

GCEM9.jpg

Spectacularly illuminated government quarter. Here the

Senate arena in the middle flanked by the public agency on the left and press office on the right. On the other side its the Army high command.

GCEM6.jpg

The massive Royal council. Nearby the cathedral

St German, next to it the Army high command and social insurance head quarter.

GCEM18.jpg

Most elegant property belongs to the Baron and his family. Positioned on a natural beach extension right on the beach front. “Royal Emirat palace” has all facility fit for a ruler. Private jetty, own helicopter landing gear and underground garage. The Baron is known for being a car enthusiast. Therefore it's not unusual to see him leaving for office with a Rolls Royce Ghost EWB, and an McLaren Mercedes SLR on weekends.

GCEM21.jpg

Not so luxurious, but still comfortable, the Senator's Villa at

Connery pond.

GCEM19.jpg

Silvaplana stream crosses from the eastern mountains throughout east island towards Merrat canal. It calls for many bridges to ensure the steady flow of transport.

GCEM16.jpg

The locks at the bottom runs in to Merrat canal, not relay used for shipping since there is no need of extra transportation routes.

GCEM13.jpg

Connery pond is a wonderful idyllic place for high grade real estate and a few historic buildings like the St Barbara monastery.....

GCEM11.jpg

...and the old train station with gondola pier.

GCEM12.jpg

South side of Emirat is the von Jäger hill

connected with a cabelcart and ongoing to Bloomberg

hill. Of course there is road and motorway available

as well.

GCEM23.jpg

Some elaborate engineering is used to keep a steady flow of traffic.

GCEM22.jpg

This concludes the report of Emirat with a cut

trough mosaic across our capital.

blogentry-240238-0-68887700-1309695350_t

Only one of the power source around CI. A new bill has been signed to ban new nuclear power plant in the United Coldiz Region, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster. All older plants will be replaced with Gas-, Wind- and Wast-plants. Since quite some time there is also, Coal and oil power plant's banned.

There used to be two medium sized Airports in CI. I decided to lose the east airport and renew the west airport instead. In place of the east airport is now Extra, which turned out to be a real estate blow out. (If you look at the rendering of the coast of Extra, you can see the artificial coastlines which were man-made extensions for the airfields.)

CIAH has 86 docks and 4 hangars run by CATS (Coldiz aviation technical service). Also an airfreight terminal and more then enough car parks. Immediately inside, is one of the hart traffic connection linking the region. Next door are two Hotels connected directly by overpass with the check in hall.
