In episode #1, we kickstart the city by building up a small island and than looking to spread out our city in the next episode. We so far have began to build our skyline, and commercial districts and the iconic japan neon light street. Project Japan is a humble attempt to build a somewhat realistic looking Japanese city situated somewhere between Okayama and Kobe on the northern shore of the Harima-nada sea. Japanese city series are almost non-existent, perhaps because of the serious ack of Japanese themed assets on the workshop. Finding inspiration can be tricky. Therefore, revamps are to be expected throughout the series, as i get better at building Japanese cityscapes and/or new assets become available.

I just wanted know what some people's personal preferences were, when it came to city building, specifically how your city layout is like. Is placing residential zones near industrial zones good? I lay my industry a ways back from the residential areas as to not attract to much pollution. I just dont like how the smog clouds my cities.
The STEX Collections isn't updated since 2013 and ironically, the staff still giving 3 of them (Vol 5 to 3) for respective donators. So, I want to replace the old system to the new one. This will be a place on the site special for donators. Here, the donator can download the staff-picked files along with the extensive docs. Of course, the access will be still limited by the donation amount. In addition of that, the mod curation will be active again, so you can expect new files to be available on the place.
How about the staff-picked Omnibus articles and CJs? Again, those stuff will be available on that place. For those who asking, "How I access the collection?", well it's easy. You can just hover/enter the respective section (ST Exchange, Omnibus or City Journals) and click Collections. How about old things? Sorry, but I can't give them just for the donators. Instead, the old things will be curated and can be easily again by accessing the Collections. And, you can just slide the timeline for old files.
Critics and suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
