So anyway this is a sneak peak of my 2 upcoming cities.Palm City and Thrash City

UZ2.png

This is the Eastern Side of Palm Village,a Rich Suburb of Travis City.Palm Village was founded in 1981 as a suburb of Travis City along with when everyone started moving to the desert.Most of these people moved to the desert because of the beautiful mesas that just seem to pop up out of nowhere.

This is the Western Part of Palm Village(yes there are trees in the middle park,they just havent grown to full size yet.

I kinda like this, just why are there giant plateus in the middle of nowhere?

They arent plateaus,they are giant mesas.

"Mesas are formed by weathering and erosion of horizontally layered rocks that have been uplifted by tectonic activity. Variations in the ability of different types of rock to resist weathering and erosion cause the weaker types of rocks to be eroded away, leaving the more resistant types of rocks topographically higher than their surroundings.This process is called differential erosion. The most resistant rock types include sandstone, conglomerate, quartzite, basalt, chert, limestone, lava flows and sills."

These are Sandstone Mesas.

Ok, but I'm just saying, you could make it smaller?

Its like a bit too late for that,and one of the themes of the desert is to mix un-realistic with realistic.But its too late because terraforming them anysmaller would cause some bad damage to the cities(ive been working on these cities for a while now,since mid march i believe) and if i terraform em,than many things would be buldozed.But i will certainlly take that into account when making my next CJ(work in progress.)And i will also,if possible,specify that this CJ is only Semi Realistic.Although the region is not completelly complete,so im some of the cities,the mesas may be a bit smaller.And these 2 are definatelly 2 of the older cities in the region(in real world not cj world)
