About this City Journal

Welcome to Harinsburg, my work in progress city since July 2016. Right now it's a bit ugly, a bit boring, but I'll be working my hardest to Build Harinsburg Beautiful (#BuildHarinsburgBeautiful     #HarinsburgSC4).

I've been playing, recording, and uploading videos of me building Harinsburg on YouTube since July, and am starting this journal to go a bit more in depth on the city.

I hope you enjoy!

Welcome Back to Harinsburg!

I lied. I said this would be a weekly journal. I'm sorry.

On the bright side, I finally remembered to turn grid lines off!

Shameless plug alert!! Check out the corresponding build video to this journal entry!

The Mighty Cowanthe River

The Cowanthe River flows south through Harinsburg, cutting right by our new-and-improved downtown (more on that later).

Every good American Midwestern city needs a river!

Downtown Harinsburg

Standing proudly in the city centre are the beginnings of a decent-size metropolis.

Any suggestions for W2W buildings that would fit this space are appreciated!

Weltham and Weltham Heights

The main part of this nicer neighborhood, closer  to the highway, is now simply known as Weltham, whereas the subdivision of our more wealthy residents retains the name Weltham Heights.

The wealthy citizens of Harinsburg have been... elevated... in status.

^^ And now, to answer your burning question: why is it called the Cowanthe River? ^^

Welcome Back to Harinsburg!

Harinsburg is back and looking better than ever!

The crowning jewel of Weltham, its local Walmart.

The popular restaurants of Weltham now include KFC and Dunkin' Donuts, trading parking for parks.

Sandwiched between Weltham's commercial districts is a growing community of row houses... and that annoying 2-Story House.

Weltham is expanding so rapidly that land developers are becoming lazy, and slipping back into using the grid for street layouts!

Weltham Elementary has been re-relocated and upgraded.

Weltham Heights is an exclusive community reserved strictly for Harinsburg's elite.

The Downtown Tenements, or--as I affectionately call them--the slums, have more than tripled the population of no-longer-humble Harinsburg, from just over 6,000 to more than 20,000.

The Grange District now sports a toll booth guarding its entrance, encouraging commuters to use Harinsburg's magnificent mass transit system.

Welcome Back to Harinsburg!

Quite a bit has changed in the rapidly-growing neighborhood of Weltham.

Weltham's just a bit different from the last time we saw it. And by that, I mean a lot.

(Check out my overview of Weltham in last week's post to get an idea)

Gone is the beloved Weltham Loop. In it's place, Weltham Avenue gives us acces to Harinsburg SR 1.

Friendly's and Chick-fil-A, two of my favorite restaurants.

A new commercial area off Rose Boulevard has sprouted between downtown and the suburbs.

The hub of Weltham: the suburbs.

Weltham Elementary and the surrounding fields have been relocated.

I had to make some interesting temporary fixes to solve some of our economic issues, but it's working well nonetheless.

Thanks for checking out my humble Harinsburg! There'll be update posts coming out at least every month.

Hey, could someone give me tips on how to embed videos in these posts?

Welcome to Harinsburg!

This is my first entry, so I want to tell you a few things about myself:

  1. I've played SimCity 4 for the past 7 years.
  2. I haven't played SC4 with mods until just this past year.
  3. I am by no means a good designer, so cut me a little slack when my cities look terrible :)

OK, with that through, let's see what we have to work with. I've been working on Harinsburg for about 1 hour every other week since the beginning of July, and this is how far I've gotten:

Yeah, so not very far. We can work with it, I think. Let's take a tour of each "neighborhood."

Downtown Harinsburg

Welcome to downtown Harinsburg, which currently house the majority of our city's population and employment. In the future this area will become a major commercial center.

Our extensive train network runs all over Harinsburg and is constantly being expanded,

Unemployment is a bit of an issue here in Harinsburg, but nothing to get too concerned about, I assure you.

                                                                                                

Weltham Heights

Weltham Heights is a fantastic new development housing most of our R$$ citizens. Right outside the city center, residents have easy access to the future Hub of Harinsburg.

Weltham Heights inhabitants currently commute to the city center on the Weltham Loop, (the one-way road), but the first stages of Harinsburg SR 1 are almost complete, offtering speedier transport.

The Grange District

Ah, Grange. The dreariest, tiniest, and most temporary of my neighborhoods. It has industry. Really ugly industry.
