HEEY GUUYS! 9.gif

First of all thank you so much for the Trixie Award for Best CXL City Journal!

I got very surprised to even be nominated, and then go and win?! Never saw that coming o.O

Like you've probobly seen both Garnica and Marinora are ended, I have soo much things in school right now and my comp is messing with me. I hadn't been logged on for a couple of months and thought I'd log on to check some news, and when I browsed through the Trixie winners I suddenly saw my name!

I never realised that you liked my work this much, and now that I know I got really excited to start a new one, and why don't use the legacy from Marinora and Garnica?

So this is my new and third, and hopefully best City Journal:

And in this one I really want you to be a part of everything! So the first question, before I start building is:
 
What do you want to see in this city, that you have or haven't seen in my other cities?

 
Please leave me your answers right here and I'll try to make a city that will blow your minds!! 9.gif

  • Good ideas everyone!

    I've slowly started building, and just as Marinora and Garnica I have started with Downtown, and working my way out into the suburbs.

    Here are some teasers before I start the updates for real ;D

    Hate to disapoint you, but thats not the way I like playing....

    I start with the Downtown and build my way outwards 3.gif and I think after a while it does look quite realistic. The only thing that's not possible to do by using my way is storytelling, but thats not how I role either 4.gif and if I did I could never compete o your AWESOME storytelling!

    I think he means starting with low/mid-rise buildings in the downtown and bulldozing and rebuilding later as the city grows.

    Yeah, that's what I mean!

    But then again, I'm very 'European-orientated', this obviously is an American/New World creation 4.gif

    And Luddmann, Tank U (L).

    I'm thinking of continuing the story, since I've managed to transfer it to CXL'11..

    I do need a 'Magical reason' why the western world wasn't destroyed D:

    Aelencia :3

    Well yes I am building a American city, like I've said about both Garnica and Marinora I'm trying to get the Chicago-look. 

    And I really hope you could continue your epic story! 9.gif

    I took a look over there and saw you won a Trixie for the "Best CXL CJ", so I decided to keep an eye on the CJ. 4.gif

    I would love to see a Chicago-like subway/metro/elevated system. I really like your metro/subway map in Marinora and I hope that Marinora 2011 will be just as good if not better!

    Allthough a elevated system looks really good, it's kinda hard to do nicely since the stations have to be underground. Then the rail would go up and down the ground and that looks wierd, with small hills of rail...

    And ofcourse I'll bring back the maps, and they will look better, I promise!

    Yeah I guess it could work..... allthough I dont think it would fit into the overall design of Marinora, I don't really like the highwaybridge.

    And please enlighten me on what "4x4" might mean? 9.gif

    Mine might be able to compete... x Giggles x

    Then again, it's not right to compare two different types of Skyline..

    Great city, love it, build more, show more, 'thx'

    Haha, you get the message 3.gif

    I have to say before anyone else does! This update I'm going to show you "Marinora by Night" and then I saw Damastuis great update of Trivordam... but I'm just saying! I'm not just trying to copy his great work, I actually had this update in mind before I even saw his 4.gif

    Here it goes:

    In the suburbs the streets are empty and quite
