    Here's the central area (surrounded by farmland) of a more rural small town of about 3000, that's in the same region as a 250K+ city, but not directly bordering it:

  • Looks really nice. I like how you've made main streets. The only thing I'd work on is I wouldn't put the powerplant right in town because it autematicly lowers land value. And I'd put atleast 1 or two small parks in to rais land value.

    not sure if you were reffering to my pic or not. my farms are just standard maxis/cam release farms. those are all unwatered farms due to the fact i was going for a mid 19th century time field.

    Wow, some pretty nice small towns there. Here's mine, Bosworth, VT (Population ~5,000). It's the second largest town in the region. The town would sit on Pkwami River, which can't be seen in the pictures, so I just mention it.

    Thank you

    @ danielcote: I'm using Olympic Terrain Mod by cycledogg. I think the trees are the God Mode trees from that mod (during the installation you can choose between different tree controlers). In-game the terrain looks greener though, I've changed the colors of my pictures a little bit. Additionaly I'm using Street Tree Mod by SFBT which adds the trees of your choice (in this cas cycledogg's) to the streets.

    I love this! I think I only counted 5 or even less MAXIS ready buildings. Spectacular details. Love the mix of buiding styles.....HOWEVER.. LOL

    I am not too fond of some of the residential situated on large blocks of brick as foundations.. I know it is hard sometimes to avoid, but there has got to be a better alternative..

    I am interested for sure in your CJ...

    Look forward towith what else you come up with.
