Some Notes: I plan to archive the growth of Port-au-Prince through the mid 19th Century, and then begin to focus on civic projects including water, etc.

If anyone has any cj or city building tips, please do share them.

Intriguing. Are you going for a Google earth sort of recreation or more of an inspired by recreation? Either can be quite interesting.

I like your region so far! One of my favorite mods is the Seasonal Farm Street mod by Uroncha. Here are the links, one for regular streets and one for SAM streets:

When I first installed these, I was amazed by how much better my agricultural areas looked. Since you have a lot of farmland, I recommend that you give it a try.

I look forward to your future CJ posts!

more close ups.

Schulmanator: My region is made by hand while looking at google maps. That is why the mountains have seems. That lake also
shouldn't
exist, but I rather like it and I am thinking of keeping it. The city itself will also be a completely alternate city from the real
Port-au-Prince, but I am trying to use actual place names where possible.

Adrianor: You are very right. I will try to install one soon. After the next update, this city should have less colored lots and more palm
trees!

sffc: Thank you for the links. The farms will eventually be replaced with good ole fashion 19th Century industrial sprawl, but I will check
out this mod for the permanent farming areas.

I should have the next update soon. Thank you all for reading.
