Anyway I have just downloaded (ok not "just", but 1 week ago) the January version of NAM and the RHW - why is it called rural highway? It obviously hasn't the "rural" feel in it . I have built a rail network in Shin Shao and I will make a transit map soon - when I have time. One thing I found out about NAM is that the FAR puzzle peaces can be EXTREMELY useful!
Shin Shao is getting bigger and bigger. I don't know the exact number of population, but it is around 30.000. Not many, huh? My goal is about 100.000 - 150.000 residents. To achieve such a number the mayor has authorised construction of many new apartment buildings to the north, northwest and northeast. While the south bank of the river running throught Shin Shao still remains unpopulated, there are speculations that the Mayor has plans to populate this place with low to midrise buildings. Some even say that he wants to build a golf course, which will undefinitely boost his rating with the rich sims.
Here are some aerial photographs of the northern part of Shin Shao, where the mayor plans new residential development:
And to finish this update: two pictures; one taken at night, and one taken at sunset:
Thats it! If you liked it, please leave a comment! Any criticism is welcome!
