Hi all, a bunch of new pics from my first city.

Day 4:

Night falls over the city.

Spark_2013-03-11_22-37-07_zps8dccfb76.jpg

But not everybody seems to sleep, as some kids are still playing on the soccer field and...

Spark_2013-03-11_22-29-27_zpsb0febb74.jpg

... some students still need a lesson.

After some problems with air pollution from my dirty industries I decided to give mysterious Dr. Vu and his dark companions

a chance to boost high tech industries.

They did not fail. As the sun rises over the city...

Spark_2013-03-11_22-26-34_zps2817dfe2.jpg

... new high-tech factories open all over the place.

The new Solar power plant helps to reduce air pollution even further...

... and the skyline looks clear again.

Finally a shot over the whole city.

As I'm reaching 100k citizens and I don't want to squeeze more sims on this map, my next step will be to start a second specialized city in the region. So stay tuned for the next update.

Cheers, Kai.

3rd Day:

After some investments in city services and education...

Spark_2013-03-10_03-49-08_zps59ad15f6.jpg

... the big companies are getting in.

1st Day

Hi all,

while waiting another time to get into the game, I decided to do my first CJ ever showing you what I've been done so far (playing since the European release @ 7th of March). I decided to start in a small region to explore the game. So here are some random impressions of my 1st city.

1st day:

Spark_2013-03-08_04-18-12_zps39a1dff5.jpg

Residential areas in the center of the town. The Town Hall and the Department of Education in the background.

Spark_2013-03-08_04-19-16_zpsa17821ba.jpg

Another view towards the center.

Spark_2013-03-08_04-21-05_zps33b18dbe.jpg

Small and medium local business.

Spark_2013-03-08_04-20-06_zps5b767139.jpg

Some traffic around here.

Cheers, Kai.
