Malmö Airport, Sweden (ESMS/MMX)
(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!

"When is the level going to settle?" - Every conversation in town gets there at some point as it's what everyone wants to know. The contractors are waiting on the architects, the architects are waiting on the town planners, the town planners are waiting on the mayor and the mayor is waiting on his advisers. But no-one knows when the water level is going to settle.
The assumption is that much of the flood water will clear, the place was named based on that assumption - Elizabeth Falls - but unless this water goes somewhere, there won't be anything worthy of the name.
So here we are, 500 people living alongside an unpredictable torrent of water - waiting for it to settle. We have a number of things in abundance: water (obviously), ore, timber and hope. We also have sizeable financial backing from the Zero7 Foundation, which has allowed us to put in services for a city much larger than our present little town.
So we wait a lot, and build a little. And hope, always ...
Welcome to my first Cities Skylines journal. I'm going to try to keep it in the style of the old traditional SC4 storyline journals, with the direction set mainly by the organic growth dictated by game dynamics. I'm new to Cities Skylines (but and old SC4 campaigner) and will be learning about what's achievable in the game as I go along.
So far we have power, water, a little industry and a growing population. Google has mapped us, so that makes things feel more real.
The highway into town needs some attention with Move-It once I open up those tiles. Rail branch to the ore district is a possibility. The 'road to nowhere' currently heading into the water will become a riverside road once I get the water position finalised.
The mayors advisers are out in the chopper every day surveying the waters, seeing if we've got a final position, but it's still draining away - good in some ways as we'll end up with more land to work with.
One thing that makes predicting the river bank's final position so hard is that it keeps raining, so just when we think things have settled, the parameters change. It rains a lot ...
But, on the rare occasions that it does stop raining, we've got quite a nice little town - let's hope we can keep it that way as we grow.
After a long break from playing Cities Skylines, I recently started a new series on my channel. It's a not-so-realistic city set somewhere in South East Asia (probably). I'm almost embarrassed to post it because I know how insanely beautiful some of the cities on here are! That said, any feedback would be appreciated
Also I'm on the lookout for any LUTs/tweaks/assets that can give the city a more "tropical" feel, if anyone has any suggestions please let me know!

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.
