Well, Its been over a year since it started, and I have had a good long look at what this city journal was, is, and never will be...
However, I do hold some recognition of what a first CJ meant to me, and why I wanted to start one.
This view of mine has changed over the year, and Im not going to say that i want to edit-undo this whole CJ, I just feel that it didn't go exactly how I planned it would, and I feel that it could have done better, but not in this setting, or map.
So, I am going to give it one last update, I feel I owe it that much to actually give an end to this small tale of what I thought "my city" was. However this is not the end for me, nor is it the end for references to this CJ, updates wise, yes, but I don't want it to die, and fade away into nothing.
So, I am leaving this CJ's door half open, you'll see what I mean in a second.
I dont plan to ever return through the door, some day I might, but not right now, for now its only the occasional peak through the gap.
Don't worry though, a new CJ is going to arrive very shortly, and it will incorporate some of the features that I felt were missing from this CJ, and maybe some of the features that I thought should have been added, or were going to be added in the updates that will no longer happen.
Without further adue, the final update.
I have kept in the style of things, and this interchange that you see reflects how this region was built.
small story line
while driving down the road, the mayor noticed, not a lack of traffic, but a new layout that had not originally gone through his certification:
He then noticed the 'original' on-off ramps of his islands style:
However, he got nearer and nearer to the coast, he began to wonder when it would stop:
He passed building after building, and then left the ground and was driving over water. When will it end? Well, It does, and it doesn't:
So, that is where we leave it. The road continues onto some distant land, a land that you are now able to see for your selves thanks to the brilliance of "Planning ahead"
As you can tell it is nowhere near finishing. However, it is the start of what I think is an actual representation of what I want as a region. Fully hand terraformed, which I learnt is not fun!
Keep your eyes peeled for its entrance sometime in the very near future. It should, hopefully, put a new spin on how many people may view CJs in the future, well, I hope so any way...
As for this Journal, thats it. I may pop in here one last time, reply to any unfortunate soul who has been desperate for this Journals next update, and also give a link to my next CJ.
Thank you to all the supporters of this CJ, you have opened my eyes to what I should aim at, and I feel proud to say that I have enjoyed this Journals short life here on ST.
Thanks again for your support
