I don't have the game yet, so naturally, I don't have anything to show. But I figured I might as well get it up and ready, since one of the most popular topics in the SimCity 4 section should manage here as well. :)

 

So get down to it and post some Skylines! :lol:

From the lovely, majestic, sweeping CBD's above to the cold northern tiny CBD of a slowly growing hamlet (apparently according to the game its a hamlet anyway. 500 people is a large Hamlet lol) called Gabtoria.

Thanks @_B

 

Great looking city Psycho Teddy. I need to expand on my sprawl :)

 

I wish the industry zoning would spawn some warehouses and cleaner industry like it did in SC4 and like you could plop in CXL closer to downtown. Currently, even with a highly educated city industry only spawns dirty brown factories. I'm not sure if that's even a thing in CSL though or if industry zoning is always very dirty.

 

Some compact highways would also be grand for downtowns.

Defecto, your work is unbelievable. That last entry....wow. Excellent job!

 

Thanks very much! Though so far I've only been expanding on my first city ever in CSL, with all the problems involved haha (traffic is evil right now as I grow more). I'm sure a new city with some more CSL experience will be better.

 

I haven't posted on this site in years.

 

It's not much yet, CS lacks in the highrise department. I'm using a low-saturation LUT.

 

 

Same here! I think I was last active back in 2009 or so. I really like the low-saturation look, will try to find that download. The LUT's do a lot for making the game look better/different. I'm currently using one called "Blockbuster" seen in my screenshots above.

Beautiful roads zimmie!

Seeing all these great screenshots makes me excited about more building variation once the modders get going :)

Its hard to avoid repetition at the moment

Thanks Defacto, I really like your first pic, one of the better ones I've seen for my tastes anyway.

 

Yeah, there is nothing that I like about the buildings in this game - from the pastels to the plain jane texturing to the architectual style and the repetitiveness in my shots are the worst. :]  But that's last thing I worry about in a new city builder because you know that is always the most uploaded item - buildings - and this community creates tons of great ones in styles for everybody. I  wish I could model, but maybe I'll brush up on my C# sharp skills and come up with a useful mod or two. :D

For you guys trying to build up a CBD but have trouble getting commercial demand - I just found out that the parks are satisfying commercial demand because of the tourism associated with them. Delete your parks, watch your commercial demand skyrocket.

 

Better to create your own parks or there is a park replacement mod on the workshop, that's what I did for now.

Finally got my airport! And I put it really far away from the entire metro area, but its right off the freeway for two fast options to the city. You can still see the downtown from this distance too - seems so far away.

Agree about the repetition. Also surprised that the office buildings aren't taller...or at the very least there aren't a few tall models. I guess we have to rely on those unlockable buildings! Either way, this is downtown Schollenberg, my first city. Not much planning went into it...the next one will be better.
