hi there SImtropolis!
THis is my first CJ, and i welcome all comments.
'New City' was orginally just an experiment as i was playing aorund with different road layouts and eventualy made a basic 4 way cross avenue, combing Y-stacks in the middle to make a nice looking round thingy, which i filled with parks. Then i plonked 6x20 oblongs leaving a few open patches for trees and parklands.
I decided to have a go of it and began zoning, placing civic buildings and bus stops everywhere.
Pretty quickly i had zoned most of the map and had to put in a basic 4-line cross subway network, which was later expanded to include a ring around the CBD, links to key areas.... then more lines as the population and traffic grew.
I used cheats to remove power and water needs, and to unlock all buildings. ( i know its naughty but i couldn't be bothered waiting)
Pretty soon i began expanding into neighbouring tiles and had to extend the subway network.
I eventually slapped an elevated highway through the middle of town which linked New City with the airport, commercial docks and two existing cities in the region.
I have used a lot of lots, mods and bats from STEX, so thank you to all those who created them
Pictures to follow...
