Well, its good to be back everyone after my holiday to Florida I felt inspired to quite an extent. This region which i plan to develop to atleast about 40x40km is loosly based on the luxury and warm living experienced in cities such as Florida and Aquatica known from Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.



I wasted no time in getting started and slowly building outwards emphesising on Quality but it seems that i can do quantity too...

This first picture shows a quite suburban area surrounding Crystal Park and Lake.


The Crystal Park with waterfalls and the local church.


An overhead view of the Sanston Highway Exchange.


The view from the Burton River


More pics coming with the next update including night time shots and the Elverto Island Development and a mysterious dip in the ground...

Comments are more than welcome and I will make sure i reply to every one who adds their two cents.

Hey great start. But, could you modify the topic title just a bit. I have a CJ that goes by a very similar name and I don't want people getting yours and mine confused.

daniel01- Thanks dan, will do ^^

powerdc- Hi Dave, thanks for the comment, it is a nice lake...you want a house there ?


Update 2

In this update, we focus on the importance of a thriving downtown to bring the luxury to any region on Earth.

Here is the Neptune Bay coastline which was recently re-walled with a natural marble rock.


The Neptune Nockers Staduim with a nice amount of parking, as expected in any region in Atlanta, the people demand it...


This view is of the Neptune Cove Industrial Port and shows how even in denser areas, industries can still thrive amongst the skyline.


A more in depth view of the transition from cold steel to brick and grass...Known to the locals as the "Hole in the Ground".


And this last picture is of things to come... what awaits this empty island of the shore and who will live there ?...


Stay tuned and watch this space for the next update...

A close up of the lake and where it goes...




A night time view of the middle of the Elveto Island.


And this follows on nicely to see what powers the island...


The Northern Tip of the island, still awaiting development.
