      Intermittent Hosted Content Errors   01/09/2018

      Our files host is experiencing service degradation atm. This means some STEX files will not download and will toss a 504 error. It could also mean avatars, attached images and such might appear to go missing. We apologize for the inconvenience. The best we can recommend if you get the file download error is to try again at a later time.

This city may not seem like much but I decided to post it because it was the first time I ever tried to intentionally not maximize the given space or maximize anything for the matter and instead focus more on the overall esthetics of the city itself and attempting to make what resembles a real city.   This was made a long time ago using the vanilla version and no mods whatsoever.  I believe the “charm” of this city comes from the fact that because it doesn’t maximize the space, you cannot exactly tell where the city begins and where the natural landscape ends.  I only had to do this once before deciding to never again not do it.  In other words, after making this city, I never tried to maximize the space again knowing that doing so only leads to the ugly square-shaped cities I was making before and that I all too often (no offense) see when I go online.  In fact, I was able to maximize any headquarters I needed to maximize or construct great works without the need to maximize the space ever again.  Doing this made the game many times more enjoyable.
