After providing you and promoting about some cities in the Fairview Region, it's time to close the Region, and moving on...

fairview192672.jpg

In this entry, I'll show you the last ever city I build and show to Simtropolis and, also the last city in Fairview.

This is the city of Pacitan, the city that I named after a city in southern East Java.

pacitan-feb._25__131397272288.png

It is only mid-growth city, so not as dense as the city I built before. Approximately 24.000 peoples living in this area and providing more than 20000 commercial jobs and 1000 industrial jobs. This city is the proper city for they who do not like the busy street of Lomonosov, and don't like the quiet and loneliness of suburbs.

pacitan-feb._25__131397272304.png

As normal as the other cities, this city completed with many public facilities. Hospitals, schools, college, parks, police station, fire station, you name it. But, what make Pacitan grateful is this building....

Rock Port

This entry built in the chaotic day of Simtropolis at April Fool Day 2014...

Okay, next to the city of Rock Port. This city don't have any seaport, nor close to the ocean, but the Mayor (Randall Bogs) decide to name the city Rock Port, so the government keep on building the Rock Port city.

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177597.png

Established not far after Shinshunimachi, the city purposed to be industrial satellite city of Shinshunimachi. Started with metal foundry, scrapyard, oil refinery, coal furnace, and garbage incinerator, it was a dirty,dirty city full-filled with pollution. Since the technologies getting better, the city get cleaner, attracted more High-Tech Industry...

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177629.png

After the rising of cleaner and modern technology, Rock Port also transform into skyscraper, due to lack space for offices in Shinshunimachi, and yet, no more smoky building in Rock Port, and now much glossy building...

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177636.png

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177645.png

Rock Port also became the home town of Fairview Walrus F.C Stadium. After closing of huge metal foundry, the site turned into a huge football stadium, with capacity around 75.000 peoples. The stadium always crowded in weekend match.

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177651.png

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177667.png

In conclusion, Rock Port city shows that everything can transform. From bad, dirty, polluted city, into pretty,modern and

iconic city in Fairview.

rock_port-aug._1__1091396177699.png

Oh, at the opening of Rock Port, Shinshunimachi claimed that Rock Port causing much crime in the Shinshunimachi city. Rock Port denies the claim, but as the city grows, crime report get lower.(help?) The city at night...

Pier 44

Yes, the city name is Pier 44, since I don't have any idea what the city should be named..... :???:

Okay, now let me introduce you to North-West City in Fairview, Pier 44. Once called the Cypress Islands, but after a huge crime crisis causing the city to shut down, the city rebuilt, and given a new name, Pier 44. The current mayor is Sebastien Bugalski, mix-match name after two best French Rally Driver ever, Phillipe Bugalski and Sebastien Loeb.

Deces-de-Philippe-Bugalski_article_hover_preview.jpg

R.I.P Phillipe Bugalski :cry: 1963-2012

The city was a huge casino city, but due to the crime crisis, the casino shut down, and everything is repaired to the brim. Currently about 100,000+ people stayed at the city. Between the West and East Islands, each islands have their main attraction. And there is one island that is purposed for industrial and seaport only. There are 2 bridges that connecting each island.

Lomonosov

Hello again Simtropolis! The new update now bring us to my favorite city in Fairview. Lomonosov!!!

Originated to build the glorious Lomonosov Moscow State University, the plan failed due to gigantic size of the BAT and LOT, also the result is hideous and ridiculous. So, I deleted the university and carry on continuing building the city.

lomonosov-nov._18__1511396103955.png

There are approximately 84,000+ people living in the city. Around 78% of them are High-Wealth people that started to move from Stirling (the neighbor). Since then, the developer races to each other to build as many and as high Luxury Condominium and Apartment as they can.

lomonosov-nov._18__1511396103966.png

The demand of residential area keep growing and growing after many public facilities has been built, and hence, due the lack of space, the building get higher and higher..... (I'll explain the awkward highway later...)

lomonosov-nov._19__1511396104028.png

Here is another shoot at the residential area.....

lomonosov-nov._20__1511396104109.png

Now, we move on to the Commercial and Business aspect of the city. Since the rich guy started to move to Lomonosov, many offices and rich shops also start to move to Lomonosov. And as usual, High-Rise offices started to built and dominates the skyline of Lomonosov.

lomonosov-nov._19__1511396104042.png

The iconic building of Lomonosov is Amethys Hotel Tower(left one). With around 700 luxurious room, this hotel is one of the attraction of the city, due to the unique design of the building, and the luxury around the building.

lomonosov-nov._19__1511396104035.png

The Plaza, is where all the accountant, lawyer, CEO, or bunch of that, have a rest and nice lunch, and a little bit enjoyment outside the office. Sometimes called the K-LOM Plaza, since the city radio station build at The Plaza. It is also attracted more tourist and bussinesman to the city.

lomonosov-nov._21__1511396104137.png

The city also had a huge concern about education. Since the failure of the Lomonosov University, the government peoples redeemed themselves by building Guggenheim Museum and Main City Library. Also, the Education Ministry is run well with the amount of money concentrated to education. Guggenheim Museum now become one of the cultural attraction in the city, as well as street performer also like to play around the avenue....lomonosov-nov._19__1511396104058.png

This city also built the replica of The St.Petersburg famous Church, and hence, it also the home of the Orthodox Church Community of Lomonosov. But, the amazement didn't stop here, since the building is so small compared to all of the skyscrapers. It's colorful theme become the heart of the city. But the avenues have to be replaced, and a roundabout was made, circling the church. P.S: It's also main attraction of the city!

lomonosov-nov._19__1511396104012.png

Nokia, (no, not that Nokia), proposed for a little bit area for High-Tech Industry, since all the engineers and the advanced programmers start to move to Lomonosov. So, Nokia have a little plant at Lomonosov, and added jobs to the people of Lomonosov.

lomonosov-nov._19__1511396104074.png

Labor Avenue is the most controversial area of the Lomonosov city. The Stock Exchange is build in that avenue, and every Labor Day, the road always closed due to protest and demonstration. And not just that, it once was set on fire due to massive protest in Nokia workers. (It's real!)

lomonosov-nov._21__1511396104165.png

Now, I'll explain that awkward highway before. Since a lot of offices build in Lomonosov, workers in Stirling also has to commute to Lomonosov for jobs, and the North Bic Avenue always crowded with traffic at rush hour. So, without any further planning, the highway built blatantly, and sadly make the city look little bit uglier. But, hey, at least the money is still keep running!

lomonosov-nov._21__1511396104125.png

And now, lets take a look at the night view of the city....

Shinshunimachi

Hello again Simtropolis! After showing you the overall Fairview Region, now I can show the very first city I build in Fairview. Shinshunimachi....

shinshunimachi-jun._23__791396094765.png

Name based on one of the rally stages in Colin McRae 04 in Japan, (yes I'm a rally and WRC fan), this is the city where I learned the basics of SC4 and city planning. So, yes, it is monotone and little bit blocky.

shinshunimachi-jun._23__791396094879.png

Currently hold up about 111,000 peoples, this city now try to balance up the crime rate that went up after the opening of neighboring city Rock Port. The purification plant is always red in Crime Data View...(help?)

shinshunimachi-jun._23__791396094867.png

One of the iconic building is the BNI 46 building (the big blue one), which acted as the national bank. Thanks to the BAT creator (I forgot his name), now Shinshunimachi also being the region capital city.

Hello Simtropolis! After my first entry about Hallwood City, perhaps it will be better if you take a look first at the region.

fairview192672.jpg

Based on the In-Game Maxis Region of Fairview, this is the first region ever that caught my attention to SimCity 4. Started at the mid 2013, with mostly nasty low R$ residential, after learning many tips and tricks as guest in the Simtropolis Forums, now I understand how to handle SC4.

(With each city and mayor names)

Thanks all!!!!

Wait for update.....

Hallwood

Hello, Simtropolis! I'm a new guy here, and I've been playing SimCity 4 since a year ago. So here I am, showing you one of my favourite city in Fairview Region....

Hallwood City

Mayor : Morten Magnussen

Est. Population : 34.000+

Overview:

hallwood-apr._13__561395969365.jpg

It look pretty rough, since I'm a new guy, compared to all of amazing people in Simtropolis. At the overview at Hallwood City, you can see :

1. Top left is the only residential area, which mostly high rise apartments building, highrise lux building, and as you probably can see, some R$ Apartments too. That's where the 34.000 people lived...

hallwood-apr._11__561395971105.png

.

2. The Main Freight Train Station at Bottom Right. Don't have any idea what that's name, also including an industrial area.

hallwood-apr._13__561395969379.jpg

3. Toyota Center, Talbot Speedway and Major Baseball Stadium. Thanks to BAT and LOT creator, the city of Hallwood now host the Hall 500 NASCAR Series. Weekend racing must went really loud.

hallwood-apr._13__561395969410.jpg

Thanks, critics and suggestion are well appreciated....
