dubaidude303: Thank you! :D

ggamgus: Thank you very much! :thumb:

Forthwall: Thanks! yes, those civic buildings are inexplicably used enough

vinlabsc3k: Grazie, no non sono un unico set, se vuoi ti mando i link, comunque chiudo il CJ perchè sto lavorando a un'altra regione abbastanza grande e inoltre questo CJ era basato sulle immagini di una sola città, quindi non poteva durare molto.

Thanks, no those buildings aren't part of a unique set, I close this CJ because I'm working on a new large region and this CJ was based on images from only one town, therefore it shouldn't be a long CJ.

In closing this CJ I post four large pics that allow you to have a complete overview of Crockton

Than you very much all those who commented, visited, followed "Living in Crockton" or did anything else :rofl:

I will come back with a new longer and greater CJ in the next months, if you liked Crockton I hope you will follow my new project too, though the new journal will have a completely different style

Goodbye! :D :D :D

Crockton Highway

SimCoug: Thank you very much again! :thumb:

ggamgus: Thanks! :) There's a surprise for you in the bottom of this entry...

The Crockton Highway connects the town to the neighbours

this 3 lanes highway surrounds the town of Crockton and connect it to west, east and south, and not the north, because as you can see there is montainous terrain north of Crockton

the connection to west passes over a stone platform

autostradal.jpg

just an overpass

autostrada2.jpg

two service stations in the middle of countryside

and this is the rhw exit with some industries on the left

Today more pics from Crockton's downtown

Crockton's downtown is mainly made of w2w lowrise buildings and a lot of plazas and there are parks attended by tourists and pigeons (the white points you can see in the plazas)

The Crockton Town Hall and the Archeology Museum are in western downtown, you can also see a part of the canal surrounding Crockton and one of the scattered parks in the town


muspark.jpg

the small train station is just in front of the column plaza I posted in the previous entry and between them there is a small parking area for the commuters

...and opposite the station another small park (by Paeng's set) surrounded by a one way road

Welcome to Crockton

strada6copia.jpg

Crockton is a small, mostly suburban, community I made the last year. I hope you like it...

Today the first part of downtown

I've paid attention to many details, for example the street side parkings never interfere with the road arrows and the railings in front of some buildings, I put also the pigeons in the column plaza and the railings are never placed on the road, but they are always on the edge of the sidewalk. I'll show other details in next entries! Sorry for the bad english...
