About this City Journal

This is my first Cities: Skylines City Journal, and my first City Journal using this version of the STEX. Darrylton is already a well-established city that is ever-growing with a strong economy, a steady in-flux of inhabitants, and lots of sights. I hope you enjoy your stay.

A FEW PLACES OF INTEREST

I am just going to cover a few places of interest in this post. There is obviously a lot to see, but definitely too much to cover in one post. First up is Marble Park, featuring the world's largest globe.

1DD53BDAE2E93F8FDAF0613F2E4FABDBE304A796

It's actually quite a bit away from the city center but is a nice addition to the Kaybridge neighborhood.

Next up is Target Park. This park features a fountain set as the bulls-eye in a target made of concentric circles of flowers. From the overhead walkway, people throw their coins and try to land them in the fountain. Only if it hits the water does your wish come true.

Those driving into the city from the west will first encounter the Statue of Industry which looks great upon the backdrop of the rising sun.

The Nuclear Plant in the background kinda adds to the appeal.

Looks cool at night too.

Then there is Coit Tower, one of my favorites.

And of course, everyone wants to visit the Colossal Mills Cereal Factory. The tours are amazing---it's like a real-life Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, but without death around every corner.

I will mention a couple of parks downtown though. First is Regency Park which is bounded by Hilton---the hotel district, the Red Light District, and the district of Regency Park (which has all the older buildings).

Next is Prospect Park which is in the middle of the Financial District.

And here are a few shots from, of, and around Infinity Park.

And of course, there is so much to do downtown, the urban jungle, but I won't go into that now... but I will post a couple of night pics from different angles. For frame of reference, check the angle of the Shanghai Financial Center.

Next post, I will talk about Century City, the Entertainment Capital of the country.

INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPORT

Darrylton has an extensive yet relatively simple transport system. Highways carry a great deal of cargo in and out of the city.

In these shots, you can get a pretty good glimpse of the downtown expressway system.

In addition to the highways which handle a host of imports/exports, at every entrance to the city, the incoming rail lines split to handle both cargo transport and passenger transport, specifically so the cargo lines do not get bogged down with unnecessary traffic.

A majority of imports and exports are handled by the cargo hub at the Inner Harbor which is lined with popular shops, forming another popular tourist destination.

Finally, there is an international airport to handle the intake of all the tourists. Next post, we will take a look at some of what they are all coming to see.

OVERVIEW OF THE CITY
Like I said earlier, the downtown skyline can be seen for miles, and from practically anywhere that doesn't have an obstacle in the way. On a hilly terrain nestled between a cluster of mountains, citizens from all over the city can enjoy natural, scenic beauty and an urban silhouette against a rising or setting sun.

For example, the following home is very modest, but it's poolside view of the city skyrockets the home's value.

And the city is still growing. There is lots of space to build, even near the core of the city.

WELCOME TO DARRYLTON

6D8614BF7E6E9D8398C8684D76792E6911DA2C8A

This is Darrylton---a center for business, leisure, and everything in between. With a downtown skyline that can be seen for tens of miles, it is simultaneously a home to some of the most prominent financial institutions in the world and a haven for the cultural elite. You should know that people seem to die by the thousands every couple of weeks here, but that's not important right now. What's important is that you stay and enjoy the sights!
