Greenland v2

Hi simfanatics! I bring you a new view of Greenlad, quite similar to the last one, but now with a full developed tram over all the city and many shoots of the city itself, including a great night shoot collage of the entire city!!

A lot ot parks, many walks, remarcable buildings... but, let start with the transportation systems, is a middle size region, with 300-350K inhabitants, I could be bigger but it needs a good transport system with this population.

The city starts with a smal monorail system, but after growing, the system growed to...

003zi.jpg

A good tram system too, sometimes needed to move underground, very expensive but who cares? Greenlanders deserve the best!

And of course, movility doesn't have to be disagree with the style...

005eui.jpg

Some "main" areas in many zones that need biggers stations...

001kqa.jpg

And some beautifull stations.... lovely.

004ltl.jpg

The result? Well, here is the traffic chart (is in Spanish but I'm quite sure that you'll undertand)

But the wort isn't all, the fun and entertaiment is important, and in Greenland there are many buildings to make the inhabitants happy and bring to the city many tourist.

Monotown

After the successfull develpment of Khannelown, Espandland decided to give the next region to an unknown man, who many accuse of being gloomy and unimaginative ... in short, a gray person, now the Mayor A. Neutral.

001fsg.jpg

And the rumours was right, after many years of development there is a successfull region, but boring and all the same...

002llf.png

and the same...

003akj.png

and the same...

004yl.png

and the same... again!!!!

005kbc.png

In short, a city with 1.350.000 inhabitants, but all the same everywhere!!!!

So, what do you think about this strange proyect and idea?

Thank for watching a your comments!

Khannelown

And the expansion of Espandland keep going... after a slow development to create a moder but nice area, Khannelown is runing at 100%. Thay have passion for the waterways and nos congested areas, for this reason in the town are many canals and even if there are many medium skycrappers, the have surrounding them park areas.

Of course, a city of 250000 inhabitant need tranport, it started with a simple heliport, but at the end it needed to biuld a regular airport.

Many canals, in the city and surrounding important buildings:

Also, a nice relax area and a great place to respect the dead friends and family.

009ax.png

As a sweet place to live, their inhabitants have refined tastes, as much as to create a schools to train chefs.

As usual, some night shoots of the city:

That's all for today, thanks for watching and for your comments and suggestions!!

PS: the entire city images are a little "small", if a few people ask me I can try making a collage and create a detailed and big city shoot.

Squaretown

Hi! Today in Espandland a new city has born: Squaretown, the planned city. This is a city designed to avoid traffic issues and provide education, healthcare and security efficiently.

The city, only roads and highways

Cypress Creek v2.0

Well, after some advices here I show you the new Crypress Creek, more personalized, greener with more parks and better transport system for the neightbours visits.

The population is limited to less than 40000 inhabitants (by my decision), here some new transports for the neightbours:

So, what do you think about the new Cypress Creek?

Cypress Creek

After the massive Megalopolis with a small "deluxe" residential area, what will want the rich and powerfull multinational president? Just live in a peacefull and relaxing city and here it is, Cypress Creek, the sweet city adjacent to Megalopolis 001. Surrounded by an artificial canal and isolated from the stress of other cities here is a nice city for those exigent residents.

A couple of day shoots:

Megalopolis 001

After a long time without playing I re-started giving some plays to SC4 and after installing a lot of CAMeLots (and a couple of days downloading dependencies o.O ) I begin a new city, born to be wild big! The result? Well, here are the city's numbers:

blogentry-388550-0-88010100-1334846578_t

It look a pretty big, and it requires tons of water, garbage and reciclying sistems and energy generation. Just 20 incinerators, 24 big reciclying centers, 6 hydrogen plants and 15 big water bombs... something like this, a big region dedicated to manage the city requirements:

002xrd.jpg

But no more numbers, here is the "rich" arean in this huge city and different version of night/day (I couldn't decide which one would be better, what do you think?)

A couple of big stadiums to enjoy the masses

0051b.jpg

But what about the traffic? A city of this size must be stoped by the traffic? As you can see here the traffic usage:

007fuh.jpg

The public transport is very used and the city construction helps to it, the central commercial/residential area is divided in sections of [Avenue - 4 contructions oc 5x5 separated by streets - Avenue], the residents can use cars without giving very serious trobles, but to help in the city are a lot of bus stations, a decent subway and a huge tram development. Only that? No, in the city I created an intra-urban highway system, but how do it and avoid the space requirements and the traffic noise? Just creating an underground highway system under the entire city conectig the main areas:

0081nr.jpg

0083ic.jpg

0082jm.jpg

The result, a huge city with only two neighbours (a satellite city and a "garbage city") and skycrapers everywhere.

009copia.jpg

That's all! I hope you liked it.
