As you can see, most of the lights are where the major cities are. You could probably guess as well that most of the metropolitan areas are built around the coast of the country. Sadly, that's all for this update, we'll see u again next time for another part.

UPDATE #6 - An update on New Darlington International Airport

New Darlington International Airport (also known as Oxford Airport because of the location and also Shubham Naik Airport because he was the designer of the airport) is the gateway to New Darlington and the rest of the world, it is the busiest airport in New Brunton. Some areas of the airport was built on reclaimed land connecting to the mainland. New Darlington International Airport is located right near Port of New Darlington which is also within Woloko Bay. The airport is the main hub for 5 airlines including: New Brunton Airways, Japan Airlines, Tiger New Brunton, Jetstar Airways and AirAsia. China Eastern Airlines also previously had a hub in New Darlington International Airport however due to the Global Financial Crisis they quickly removed the airline.

The airport has also plans for it to be used as a military airport due to the fact that there are no military airports in New Darlington.

New Darlington International Airport is a fast-growing hub for both passenger and cargo traffic. New Darlington International Airport also served a total of 41,578,621 passengers in 2010, making it the 19th busiest airport in the world. Both passenger and cargo traffic grew by more than 27% in 2010. As New Brunton's busiest international airport, about half of New Darlington International Airport's passenger traffic is international.

Industry City are reclaimed islands that were built on Norton Harbour to make areas for industrial buildings, there are also two nuclear reactor training buildings.

The opposite to the east, west and the CBD of Harlden is North Harlden, the low income residents usually live around this area as the prices isn't so high.

Hostane River Arena was designed by an Italian architect and his inspiration was spaghetti.

NewBruntonbanner-1.jpg

Update #6: This update will be about the city of Harlden which is in fact the Capital city of New Brunton, although it is the Capital it is not the largest city which will be shown soon...

Slide1-3.jpg

Harlden's CBD, not so much happening and a very quite area, what used to be an industrial centre now a CBD.

Slide2-4.jpg

Now this eastern area of Harlden has lots of things happening and skyscrapers, residents even say that this area should be named the CBD.

Slide3-4.jpg

Tresor de zoo, what a real treasure, the word tresor is French for treasure. The zoo is located at the southern end of the CBD.

Slide4-3.jpg

Harlden Aquarium another beauty, the small yet interesting aquarium houses penguins, sharks, dolphins and a lot more.

Slide5-3.jpg

West Harlden is home to all the luxury and high-rises, this area is growing rapidly that it houses almost half of the population in Harlden.

AND THAT CONCLUDES THE ENTRY FOR TODAY! THE NEXT UPDATE WILL AGAIN BE ABOUT HARLDEN.
