Is it permissible to create the same City Journal in both the City Journal forum section and the other site City Journal section (I'll refer to it as the "community.simtropolis.com/journals" CJ section)? Also, is there an easily viewable area which contains new updates and comments posted in the "community.simtropolis.com/journals" section? I haven't found one. This is my primary concern with posting a CJ in the "community.simtropolis.com/journals" section because it makes me doubt that both areas attract the same audience. However, I am interested in trying out the CJ format of the "community.simtropolis.com/journals" section.
Entry 1: Beginnings of Seattle, Washington... and early setbacks/rebuilding.
As most of you know by now, I've been showing off bits and pieces of my work in progress of building Seattle, Washington for Cities:Skylines. I feel it is time for me to consolidate my progress work in a CJ place so I can share and you see my continual work in as close of an interesting city. Some background on myself, I've loved SC4 finally came back to the city simulator world when Cities:Skylines came out. My decision to build Seattle is due to living in the Pacific Northwest, although not in the city itself, for a number of years and the challenge it presents to a city planner.
So without further ado, presenting Seattle!
I took Steam workshop map of Seattle and then I roughly recreated the regional highway network. This work goes back sometime before After Dark.
It was here that began my work on perfecting multi-level interchanges with the signature work on the Interstate 5 and Interstate 90 interchange. This is first version built in map editor, obviously not perfect. You'll see throughout this journal the gradual improvement on this design, which influences how I build interchanges now.
As you can see, learning the finer details of onramp/offramp placement is pretty key to making good looking interchanges. Too bad there was not any retaining walls at the time...
Oh hey, look sunken wall assets are made. This was my first real test of using them to prop up a hill slope while using duckclog's pillars. Unfortunately, I only had a single save file at this time of Seattle and the save file was corrupted.
Well, it was a learned lesson to have two save files of that ever went down again... but the corrupted file incident provided an opportunity to rebuild in a more correct way. I started Seattle again in the southern industrial heart near the I-5/I-90 interchange and made some immediate build changes.
First, Holgate Street Bridge and rebuilding Interstate 5 as elevated viaduct highway as it should be through this area.
Second, rebuild western termius of Interstate 90 near Safeco and Century Link Fields.
Rebuilding the Interstate 5/Interstate 90 interchange in it's third and final configuration. Sorry about the quality of this particular shot... As noted that new placement means a new alignment of the rest of Interstate 90 northward eventually. Note that Interstate 5 is fully elevated now throughout this shot compared to earlier shots.
Finally, overview of Pioneer Square, Sodo, and Industrial Districts. Plus, early work on Seattle CBD layout.
Next time, the challenge of building Interstate 5 through the Convention Center.
So, as i was taking uploading a shot of my rail yards, it occurred to me that i was trying to dump too much lore into a thread. I decided to start my first City Journal, because i'm terrible at LPs and want to flesh out my city. So, without further ado...
Saint James, a crown jewel of Infrastructure and Status, lies somewhere in New England. The constant target of railroad investment and the decision to form a new Transit Authority and Municipal Freight Railroad when Penn Central went to hell has kept a lot of railways and other transit in the city. The grand station, designed based on Europe by the New Haven, provides an elegant way to travel into the city, with a comprehensive Metro and Suburban train system weaving together the majority of suburbia, and a couple Funicular lines going to sleepy resorts.
I hope you enjoy my journey of designing it.
Central Metro Station, improves transport performance.
This metro contains 2 routes under the ground that allows a good flow and performance to your city.
with one of the best styles in building, starts connecting cities and releases traffic congestions.
