New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean consisting of 2 main islands, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national museum. Wellington’s dramatic Mt. Victoria, along with the South Island’s Fiordland and Southern Lakes, stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s "Lord of the Rings" films.
There's just so much I like about this game, that instead of the annoying bits making me go over to Cities: Skylines, I wanted to see if I can enhance the game and mod the annoying bits away. I have actually bought Cities: Skylines but it just seems to lack personality in comparison. If I can't shape SimCity 2013 to my desires then Cities: Skylines is always there as a back-up I guess.
I'm currently fumbling my way through, my main aim is to change the roads to UK roads. I appreciate there is a EU road pack out there, but it's just not the same! Here are some ideas, I was wondering if any experienced modders out there could point me in the right direction on these, perhaps let me know if some of them just simply aren't possible? That'd save me a bit of time!
1. Change road textures/painted lines to realistic UK streets (will see how far I get with https://gamebanana.com/tuts/11515).
2. Change road intersections/painted lines to realistic UK intersections, perhaps remove some crossings - we don't have crossings at every intersection on every road, this is generally for the busier areas/roads. Maybe I'll remove all the crossings from all the roads and add plop-able crossings. Note that right now I'm a total noob at this!
3. Might add a new dirt road or increase the width of the existing one, perhaps also increase depth of the lot on the dirt road - dirt roads in real life can have large houses and farms on them so why not in the game?
4. The holy grail for me would be to make traffic drive on the left.
5. Add a plop-able guard house for luxury estates - perhaps it's possible to modify a police patrol car lot into a guard house that only patrols a designated luxury estate, arresting criminals within that estate and dropping them off at the police station - but this might be too ambitious.
6. Add or change a park to a farm or field with stable and horses.
Do you think any of these are impossible?
Notes and stuff: One day, I was looking at the forums (before I registered.) I say a section marked 'City Journals'. I thought 'Hey, that section looks nice, maybe I'll find a nice city timeline in there.'
Immediately, I saw a thread marked 'Skylines of Cathnoquey.' I thought 'That looks interesting, I should read it.'
I spent the next 3 hours reading it.
(Good job Linoa, your journal is one of the best I've seen)
After I was done, I wanted more. Much more. I waited for updates.
*One week passes*
*One month passes*
*One year passes*
There finally was an update in November 2017. I was excited! I thought the series would be revived.
That was the last update before now.
(If the author has real-life problems, I understand.) There seemed to be a big hole where the 'Organic City Timeline Journals' category was.
At this point, my interest in C:S began to rise again. I thought 'Why not make a city journal?' So I did. I tried to make one and lost the save file.
(I just remade it.)
The town that I remade I wanted to be the first town to have the city journal focused on. I hope to update this one until I lose interest within a month for at least a few years until my SSD has no more room for my save files. That town's name was Lynnfield (Named for a reason that you maybe will see once I stop being lazy and make a state map for Lynnfield.)
So here it is! (Notes are done.)
In northeastern Kabylake province (named for the giant lake in the middle of the province and another hint to where the name Lynnfield came from), at the intersection of Freeway I-670 and A-87 (The major highways in the province) lies a sleepy village by the name of Lynnfield.
It's an unassuming little town, situated at the tributary of two rivers. This quiet little town of 2.950 hasn't seen much development since its founding a mere 35 years ago.
The city lies just off Freeway A-87. The city is linked to a freeway, connected by a roundabout named Maxwell Circle, aptly named for the giant statue of a GTX 980 in the center. On the other side of the freeway lies the city's farming industry, which has largely driven the local economy and provided the majority of employment in the city.
Freeway A-87, which provides highway access to Lynnfield.
Cosine Co., a major engineering company in Kabylake, recently opened another of its many headquarters, providing Lynnfield citizens an alternative to farm work and a break from the sun and the heat.
Atlantic Salmon Apartments, named for how the colors of the complex resemble the skin and meat of a salmon, is the latest addition to a downtown that otherwise hasn't changed in the past 15 years.
Bob the motorcyclist takes a right turn to the farm he's employed at. He's contemplating leaving the city or applying for a job at Cosine Co., as the city has provided little jobs for college graduates like him.
Lynnfield high school. Built 20 years ago, the school is starting to have an overflow problem and the city, governed by Mayor McFatbags, seems to spend all its budget at improving the Mayor's mansion, so the problem remains. However, elections are coming up, and there's a disruptive candidate that gives the previously uncontesed (for reasons that the city absolutely does not want to disclose) mayor McFatbags a run for his money.
The intersection of Blemont and 7th street, the main East-West and North-South axes of the town. Plans to upgrade the roads and potentially accommodate more new citizens have been stalled by the mayor's monopolistic council, but as mentioned before, there a a wave of young Lynnfielders who are tired of stagnation and corruption in the city and running for a spot in city council and even mayor.
The city hall.
The 2 main highways near the city provide the city a huge opportunity as a transportation hub, which many of the young Lynnfielders running for city council or Mayor are hoping to take advantage of. Being the largest town within a few tens of miles with low tax rates and easy accessibility, maybe the city will grow some day...
That's it for today! There probably will be more tomorrow, considering how excited I am at continuing this. This is my first CJ, so feedback is strongly appreciated.
Edit: Ideas for future updates and mods/assets are also appreciated. The map is Copper Creek, if anyone's curious.
Bougainville Island is the main island of the Autonomous Region of Bougainville of Papua New Guinea. This region is also known as Bougainville Province or the North Solomons. Its land area is 9,300 km² and has a population around 243,000
There was a multi-layered armed conflict fought from 1988 to 1998 between Papua New Guinea and the secessionist forces of the Bougainville Revolutionary Army (BRA), because the locals of the island didn't approve of mining operations operated by Rio Tinto from Australia
Here's a video i made for this map:
Papua New Guinea, in the southwestern Pacific, encompasses the eastern half of New Guinea and its offshore islands. A country of immense cultural and biological diversity, it’s known for its beaches and coral reefs. Inland are active volcanoes, granite Mt. Wilhelm, dense rainforest and hiking routes like the Kokoda Trail. There are also traditional tribal villages, many with their own languages.
This is part of a 2 piece series of either halves of New Guinea
This map is at a scale of 1:10, and its still pretty big, infact, this is the biggest map i've made, and probably will make
Disclaimer: The eastern part of New Britain cant be seen (on my PC atleast) so no Rabaul However i will make up to this with a possible map of the Bismarck Archipelago
