Today I will be showing you what i have been working on this last week... Suburbs!!!! I will be showing you the semi-completed district of Oakwood, which is located just north of downtown. Oakwood is a lovely medium wealth neighborhood, located in a prime location with many parks, schools and recreational activitys. Commute times for Oakwood residents is no problem, due to rail lines and highways that pass through the neighborhood. Houses start at 250,000$ and range to 450,000$, but buy quick, houses are selling fast...
Now for some pictures:

Introduction

bannerkh0.jpg

    Hello and welcome to my newest cj, Ampton County. This is my third attempt at a cj and hopefully this one will be very successful. Unlike my other cjs where I had a good portion of the region complete before putting it on display, this one i am starting from scratch. My region is a hand terraformed 3x3 large tile region, with a large river winding its way through the center of the map. As far as modds and bats go i have alot and i am not going to list them, however if you have any questions about them feel free to ask. My cities tend to resemble realistic american cities, with suburbs, downtowns and realistic comercial areas. As of right now I am setting up the main transportation network (Highways, railways, etc.) throughout the region, so today i will be showing you my progress.  

Pic1.1- An overview of the main region tile, where i plan to eventualy build the downtown.

Pic1.2- The highway crosses Ampton River.
