About this City Journal
Arden County is a replacement of New Lanchester(canceled due to save issues).It's also supposed to about a region that is ending it's industrial revolution and moving on from .The project is inspired by American east coast cities such as New York,Baltimore,Philadelphia,etc.I hope I can finish this project soon.P.S. I have decided to tell history tales about this region as the city journal goes on.

Before assuming that I will cancel this project I will not cancel this project at all but it's taking a new route.So I made a decision to start the entire project over as completely rural.Why?I've lost interest in developing urban areas and felt like I couldn't do rural and urban at the same time so in response I decided to start over the project as rural.You guys might not be happy about the decision but I just felt unwilling to do urban areas.I also promised to slow down the entries as I realized how much I did on this city journal.Thanks for the support and it keeps me motivated to continue this project.
Here's some screenshots of a industrial town I was working on.
I will be taking a short break from developing the urban area and I will move to the countryside.Expect some new things to come up.
Steve W.Walker Memorial Bridge
The population is exploding and the city hasn't changed much expect I added the main skyscrapers to the city and started a Chinatown.
Here is some progress so far.It's not much but it's worth it.
As you may know,all of my saves were suddenly deleted out of nowhere.I had hundreds of hours placed into Arden County only for it to suddenly vanish.The worst part is there's no recovering it so I have to restart.
The city council has recently gotten involved in a ongoing conflict on what should be built at this construction site
Developer #1.Uvorbo Construction & Landscaping wants to build a new housing area along the port area in the distance.Supporters say the project will house 8 families and will possibly provide new economic opportunities.
Developer #2.Eden Construction CO. wants to include a brand new high school that could increase the land value in the area.Supporters say the new high school will increase the land value around the area and will give more teenagers access to a good high school.
Both sides are at each other's throats over the issues for a while now.There has been numerous confrontations and a fight over what should be built at this area.Which side do you choose?Also state why you chose that position.
So I made an Alleyway for some of my stores
Hello guys so it seems that you guys have been following Arden County for a long time.I am not halting the project or canceling it!I'm starting a new West Coast city called San Abuela.I have a collection of the assets/mods needed for Arden county so I should be able to Redownload all of the assets without any problem.Here's the link to it
Future Downtown and Harbor
A new Urban City in the works
Everyone who has been following my Arden County project,I've planned to stop working on this until I get equipment that can run this game without issues.For now I am shifting my focus onto European Cities for now.I plan to use less assets than I would use in American cities.
Introducting the newly under construction city called New Fenway.I don't know if I want to keep the tall tower on the right.It houses 703 households
So as it turns out I couldn't stop the meteor from hitting my city so I've decided to restart everything.To make up for it I've decided to give you guys some screenshots of a brand new town.
So I've played around with the disasters and didn't realize I saved the game while it was Occurring.I have forgot to make backup saves,Now I can't turn off the disaster and I might have to restart everything!Damn I have some bad luck.
Hey guys,I've been having trouble on what should I build in Arden County.I usually know what to add but I've been trying to figure what to do first.Yeah it sounds like I shouldn't be doing this.
Hi guys!So lately I've planned a new district and I will call it Nassau Bay.It will contain many hotels,a few casinos,a waterfront,and possibly a Marina if I can build one.It may take me about 2-5 weeks or more because of other life events and school.
I have started to make a ghetto area in Arden County.I've started with this
