Hello and welcome to my first City Journal!
The goal of this city and journal is to create an and experiment with a town located within the mediterranean. I hope you will enjoy!
The name of the newly arrived 'old' town is Urbino, named after a town in Italy. This town was once governed by a great man during the Renaissance called Federico da Montefeltro and created one of the centers of wisdom of that time. Even at this day Urbino holds one of the oldest Universities and is a sight to behold.
All the pictures below show a portion of what I have already finished. I hope to post some pictures soon of what I m working on now. My mind shifts into many directions thus the amount of projects I m working on simultaneously is tremendous. All feedback is more then welcome!
I present to you: Urbino!
OSL Airport is located at the bottum!
Post 1: Since summer is over and school has started, so I finally got into Simtropolis and all it's prettiness, I thought why not make a CJ for you and me to enjoy together.
I chose a map which I think is cool and so let's get started. The style i'm going for would be an American style, but a little different.
And of course a Strictoaster Fuel supply.
Our source will mostly be renewable energy, but a oil field or two will be made in the future.
"Project X" --> Copenhagen Airport Kastrup
(go to the last page of this journal for more screenshots)
So I decided to start a new project, mainly due to the fact that my last city kept on crashing since the last patch.
So anyway here it goes!;
We start on small scale with a small village in a tropical mountainous landscape.
With such hot climate there quite alot of power demand keeping all those AC's up and running!

One of the highways going through the area. It aint cheap building those bridges!
Hi all, I wanted to share a new project I've been working on, Piedra Verde. The idea is to try and build up a city organically, over time, with some backstory - hopefully this will result in a neat creation with some realism as well. I've started this in the early 90s - early enough that I have plenty of time to grow the area before reaching the present day, but late enough where I can get away with using most of the vehicles and buildings from the game. (Of course, some vehicles will look a bit too modern, and some buildings a bit older, just go ahead and look the other way )
Piedra Verde (a.k.a. Green Stone) is a set of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Although it was sighted a few times before the 20th century, there was never any settlement. All anybody knew was rumors about a faint green glow coming from an island in the Pacific. (It turns out that glow is due to rare radioactive ores, but more on that later.) The islands somehow remained unknown until around World War II, and then during the Cold War it was agreed to keep the islands as a mostly secret neutral uninhabited area. Once the Cold War ended, the existence of these islands became more widespread. In the new spirit of international cooperation, an organization was formed to settle this area and investigate the glowing rocks... and profit off of the ores if possible.
In 1991, the territory of Piedra Verde was born. In the rush to settle it and construct the original facilities, not that many photos exist of its first year. Here you can see the main settlement - a small port, a couple of factories, and some basic housing. They did at least have a nice football/soccer field though.
Here's a closer look at the port area, including the main fuel depot for the settlement.
Of course, the main reason for this new territory was the mysterious glowing rock. So far the mining operations haven't actually found much of the glowing stone - the reports of glowing were probably quite exaggerated. There was, however, plenty of coal and iron to dig up, so there was plenty of profit to be made in this new land.
With all the new hype, the island's infrastructure is being significantly expanded - construction is probably the second biggest industry on the island.
So that's a little preview of Piedra Verde, in the future the territory will get some actual government organization, and they'll be sure to take plenty of pictures.
