Update Nine: Contrast

Here's a map for your Reference:


Today we'll start with a mosaic from San Sebastian, just to set up the contrast:


Now we move to a very different place, the former Capital of Insulo, Cxefurbo. Cxefurbo is a planned city, and the original phase build in 1947 after the Viboras Swamps were drained. The city was designed to be inexpensive and simplistic, the realization of the utopian dreams of the Insulonian National Party. In 1971, the outer levee broke, and now the swamps have reclaimed large tracts of the city.

Welcome to the Swamps:


When man attempts to outdo nature, well you can see who won (Mosaic):


On the other side of the wall we see a typical, gloomy day in Cxefurbo:


So much concrete (mosaic):



Hope you liked this contrast to other parts of Insulo. I really do enjoy doing things that are different, being one dimensional is just so boring, and I want to like the game. It is after all a game, even if I use it more like a canvas.

Looks like a communist city that is deserted and in decay. in sharp contrast with the capatilist skyscrapers. Would like to see Cxefurbo get renovated and turn into a prosperous city! Great update

Sadly traffic is missing at the first mosaique.

Whoa, stunning... With this update, you're reaching the level of the grime masters that inspired me for my CJ; and now, I think I have another person to get inspiration from. Thank you for this update!
