I am a long time player of SimCity ever since the original version. I have never been very successful at this latest version though and have put it down in frustration several times. However this time I have found Simtropolis and have learned much about the strategies to making a great city. I figure if I am going to be here and I am going to be starting a big ambitious project I might as well share it with the community. I don’t plan to make up any fake history or tell any great stories but I will share my intentions, plans, frustrations and progress as I go along and maybe someone out there will find it entertaining or even learn some small tidbit along the way.
The title might show my age a little as it is a twist on a very old song but it is intended to imply that I will be recreating Jacksonville FL (JAX is the local abbreviation) not as it is, but as it could be.
I wanted to include as much of the RL city limits as possible which is a sizeable adventure and I found a map that would best fit my needs on the STEX.
