Ramses was Designed

On a 7x7 housing grid, which gave homeowners large swaths of greenery behind their house.

Founded on the edge of the Rose River (go figure) and connected to Roseville via SR2, the city of Ramses was established in 178 F.R.

Recent renovations of the nearby highways caused a growth spurt in Ramses and the construction of a Super Target to meet growing residential demands.

In most of the city, the 7x7 grid was hacked to 7x3 (as seen pretty much everywhere else in the regon) to make the best of the given space and open up more room for wealthy residents.

The current city size is approximately 6,000 and may reach 8,000 soon.

Line up the Shot

The intersection of SR1 and SR2 lies just between South Roseville and Ramses. SR1 effectively divides the two cities' boundaries, and carries the majority of Ramses' traffic into the South End Industrial Park.

What was once a quaint roundabout was changed into a normal lighted intersection when SR2 was upgraded into a 4-lane highway.

Target serves as the major grocer, pharmacy, and retailer in the city of Ramses. It employs about 500 locals, many of whom are high school students working part time for spending money.

More of the city's core. Recently some apartments were approved for construction due to their low height profile.

SR2 continues on to the southern wilderness. Development of any kind is currently forbidden past here by Roseville State Law until 350 F.R.

The school, library, fire department, and some residences.

The Rose River narrows as it passes Ramses. Here we can see the local SR1 bridge and the massive electrical towers bringing power to the city from the SEIP. Many teenagers enjoy having parties just across the narrow part of the river.

Some Ramseans take the back road to the SEIP. They decided it would also be a nice quaint location for their cemetary.

F.R. stands for Founding of Roseville. I didn't feel like giving my CJ a timeline consistent with our year system so i replaced AD/CE with FR haha. And i realize that in 300 years Roseville should be more than 150,000 people, but we'll just pretend they're short years :D
