    Today we visit the neighbour city of Fries, Gimpstone.

    Gimpstone is a fast developing city with a very prosmissing soccer team.

    The last couple years the team got in 1st class and the manager is planning to build a new stadium since the old one can't house enough supporters.

    7387635.jpg

    The blue buildings under the stadium are owned by the club.

    This weekend they will play againts their rival, Silver Lake FC.

    In the heart of this small city is the Preston Building, the first skyscraper build in Gimpstone.

    due stability problems the building is abandoned for the last couple of months and the major is planning to take it down and build a new, even bigger skyscraper.

    7387636.jpg

    The city is build around the sea, which makes it a perfect tourist trap.

    high wealth residences and hotels are build with seaside view.

    Today we visit Credit, at least the industrial part of the area.

    The industrial area exists out of three islands.

    The outer right one is called "The Docks". Only end-product firms are located on this islind due to the high transport capacity of the docks and trains.

    The middle island, the largest one, only houses hightech industry.

    And the outer left island houses a lot of different types.

    You have done an excellent all around job here. Your urban landscape is diverse, the farms are realistic, the port area is very nice and you've done an outstanding job on a lot of little detail like that stream and pond. :thumb:

    These parts are almost finnished.

    The planning is well done and looks to create an interesting city. One of the advantages of a completely planned city is not having to undo things that have been in place for years. I've used some of the techniques you have pictured to create some small ponds and as the shoreline of a river. Thanks for sharing those! :thumb: :thumb:

    What parking lot set did you use for the train station, and do cars appear at any point?

    Another beautiful creek! :drool:

    The town layout looks pretty good. I love all the curves in the infrastructure. Are you going to have an industrial district as well?

    What parking lot set did you use for the train station, and do cars appear at any point?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think those are the SAM (Street Addon Mod) drawable parking lot streets.

    @sim_link: Thank you, I'm trying to make it this way so I don't have to change anything to the city whenever it gets 500k inhabitants. Which trees do you mean? I have the plopable ones from PEG (1x1 and 4x4 trees) and the Maxis tree replacement mod.

    @rewricht: Thanks, feel free to use my style ^^ Those lots are from the SAM mod.

    @nathanthemayor: Thank you! :D Do I have a landscaping tutorial? :D

    @yunxiang: Thank you! Well, I've added some small areas around the main city.

    @vivapanda: Thank you!

    @testuser1234: Thank you!

    @reaper88: Thank you!
