Bern, der Schweizer Kapital !

This month we first visit the land of watches, chocolate, cheese and beyond ! This month three part "Show us what your building" took some effort away of this CJ build but gives a showcase of what might lies beyond the city building corner; specialy I like to see the grow of the SFBT Bern set wich would be awesome. Landmarks for this city aren´t well available so a lot to research. This map just like the Munchen map covers a imaginative part of the Berner land.

Let´s start with innercity area !

Swiss gantry is quit different from German & middle european one´s , not completly acurate but to give this a little bit of accent I now use the swiss gantry mod with faded pole´s to give it a more modern look !

To conclude some pictures of the city tile !

Hope you enjoyed this CJ and see you back next time !

Budapest Magyar !

Budapest Magyar !

Welcome in the third city in this series ! Budapest as several east european cities breath the air of the orient. Most prominet the large chainbridge, the hungarian parlament and the Keleti Railway station. Impresive landmarks wich if not available be improvised. Magyar is refered to as Hungary the country or the original tribe living in the area descriped. Hope you enjoy this CJ !

Starting a new city always is a big effort, this week have been a very warm one, with tempertures upt 30 dgr, releasing this CJ didn´t went without a lot of sweat and  tears !

Starting a large city a like, require a big network of road´s rail and other necesities. As with the other cities these appear first and take a lot of time to complete. 4Cities region, as this is called, has a RHW network in progres, some parts are ready, most to be created allthought it will quit small comparing to the Mayon region !

Some structures and the Budapest Keleti Railway station replaced by Gare Orsay !

Europa ANNO for now is mostly germany with Frankfurt and Cologne soon we will widen our view to cities like Vienna, Prague and even some bigger metropolis will arrive soon. A France ANNO and Germany ANNO have been setup so spreading out my wings over other cities is a possibility !

Let´s answer the question I stated above ! Cologne Koeln area was so wide that with some discretion I could put some part of Leverkusen in it.

Cologne Koeln Extended !

This time I couldn´t find any other title for this months CJ. ANNO Holland also in development I had to make a choice what to show !

Cheaply I could offer a photo tour of Mayon Province, not doing any justice to this series, ANNO Holland has for BAT´s and other plugins passed the test phase but needs to be furthur worked out; so have another look at Cologne, Koeln in the sixties, that the era we are aiming for with some discretion !

Overlook of the town as far !

Koeln%20023_zps0w1n9q3e.jpg

Cologne Koeln !

Cologne - Koeln !

The famous city known fot it´s Léau de cologne has arrived in this series ! As with Frankfurt this city also had suffered a lot in WW2.

Hope you enjoyed this CJ and see you back next time !

kschmidt

Frankfurt Hochschule !

Frankfurt Hochschule !

Last CJ I showed you a more wide view of the city and some of the startup problems ! Red-Green flag seem to be a road or street kind of road or street prop  or mod using or confliciting with maxis props; relaying sections of road or street resolve the problem ! NAM 34 may resolve the catenary on rail bridges or replacing with HSR; Elevated rail do have pieces but connecting it to normal rail will crash the game. Last not mentioned where the large maxis estates in suburb wich connected four plots of 2x2 to a 4x4 lot; special mod would prevent this but making a plot historical is easier !

This CJ is relatively short, proges is made; city only development is taking it´s toll; endless neighbourhoods, road-rail infrastructure and at last some development on a neighbouring city wich will be revealed soon; some innercity works need to be finished first. Rural Europe will be there aswell but custom content not yet up to a reasonable level to do anything !

Well let´s start this CJ !

Frankfurt Hochschule was established late 19 Century, Universtiy was proposed but at the heart of Germany and with Heidelberg nearby a more technical education was more suiting !

Frankfurt Alte Bibliotheke !

Frankfurt%20040_zpscgj5f6w0.jpg

Faculty´s for Science and Mathematics !

Frankfurt%20039_zpsj6ouzaqo.jpg

University and Hochschule have a good relation on sharing facilty´s !

Last one shot of a neighbouring city wich will be revealed later in this series, picture for the imagination; European city´s seem to be more popular the last month´s so I don´t like to give away too much about it !

Last problem I encountered. How to electrify those bridge tracks, seems imposible, elevated is only used for subway purpose, maybe HSR ?

Frankfurt population has grown to about 64.000 citizens. Industry is complaining, Commercial activities painfully slow come from the ground; adding more schools, the university and improving the enviroment may help as lowering taxes a bit !

Hope you enjoyed this CJ and see you back next time !

Europa ANNO !

Europa ANNO !

Welcome to my new CJ series. Aim of this series is to depict several european scene´s in differen area´s in changing ages. Accomplish these goals will be difficult, maxis housing and skyscraper need to be blocked. BAT search for the various scene´s will be quit time consuming ! This CJ we start with the 4 Cities region, this consist of the cities of cologne, frankfurt, zurich and budapest; this list maybe extended. Later other region installment may be added to this CJ. Frankfurt am Main as portrayed in the teazer is our first city in the 4 Cities region !

Frankfurt am Main is located in the bundesland of Hessen some miles of the famous river Rhine, wich of you often get the mispronounciation am Rhine wich is wrong. Flashing as it is today, we start in a 1960/70 era, Urban transport will be main focus, Highway´s will mostly be upto NWM level with here and there some RHW at city borders. As mentioned this CJ will be build as you go, so progres in stages. Let´s have a look !

Still a lot to do ! Fancy sailing yacht´s to be replaced by Rhein Aken and large long distance passenger ferry´s. Rail infra near completion, ring line around the city is finished, still those catenery ´s and other details to add. Agricultural if a passed objective, there´s to much heavy industry. Next CJ we move on a little bit outer of town with the  infra and suburbs !
