Atlanta, A Nation Of Dreams

66 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    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".
