This here is a picture of the Farmhouse of John "Big Cow" Yourk, the Mayor of Austin from 1983-1987. At the 1984 City Fair, he put his cow, Bessie, in as the heaviest. She weighed in at 2 tons! The mayor and the cow had won. This cow became the mascot of the city. That's why one of the Cities nicknames is "The Big Cow".

It's early April 1774. A young explorer named Fernando de Austin, approaches the Pacific Ocean. He decides to make camp there. He builds a nice European-style building, which is today town hall.

He notices that the soil here is quite fertile, unlike the rest of Southern California. He decides to bring settlers here, and calls the town Austin.

Many years later in 1845, the city became a boomtown, due to the Gold Rush.

Canada Peace Tower:

This tower is based off of British Columbia's CN Tower. It is shorter than the actual one, due to height laws (it's downgraded by ten feet). This tower was built in 1998 by Americans and Canadians, to signify peace. The opening ceromony was on October 8, 2000. Today, you may ride up the elavator to the top of this glorious structure. Here are some facts on the Structure:

Regal, CA

blogentry-441196-0-55076700-1317843818_thumb.pngHey guys! This picture represents the small town of Regal, in southern CA. The town has a population of around 350 souls. Near Downtown Regal, is The University of Southern California at Austin. The was around WAY before Austin was (founded by Spaniards in 1678). As you can see, there are some pretty nice buildings in the town. Haha. I didn't use any new buildings to make the town. Now, here's a pic of the University of Austin (or Southern California).blogentry-441196-0-62717000-1317844392_thumb.png The school is home to around 12,000 students aged 18-22.

Here are comments from the last entry:

I'm glad my instructionsworked. I'm a cali native so this looks really nice- Makes me want to return. 3/5titanicbuffphoto-thumb-235805.jpg The city looks nice, but it can improved a lot :)

1) Terraforming the land before building will make the city looks pretty awesome. Check some city journals for inspirations.

2) If you don't have N.A.M., get it. It will make your transportation system way more efficient, as well as adding new tools to make it more flexible.

3) Download custom made stuff. The Maxis buildings are O.K., but you can customize your cities to make them more personal.

4) Always hide the tool bar and the U.D.I. icons.

The rest are up to you. Keep it up and have fun :golly:Terring

blogentry-441196-0-10484900-1317812405_thumb.jpgHey. This right here *(sorry for lo res) is the west side of Austin, a beach town in Southern CA. The current population is around 175,000 (quite large considering i dont use any cheats) The reason i don't show the east side, is because it is filled with cruddy slums. the only good thing over there is the convention center. Now the West Side (that's the name of the bourough) is home to entrences to highway 45( wich i'll show later) wich goes around Austin like a beltline.Downtown Austin has mainly streets and avenues (remember: no cheats). Also in the West Side is Antwerp Beach, the only inner city beach. This is quite off topic, but now i'm going to talk about Harrisburg and Regal (yes, i will get pics). Regal and Harrisburg are two suburbs of Austin. 90% of their populations are dirty rich, and in Harrisburg there is'nt a $$ or $ building in sight. This afternoons issue will be on either highway 45 or those suburbs. vote by 4pm!. I'll announce the winner
