escilnavia: Wow, beautiful city, how long did it take you to build?

A: Well, i'm still working on this city, so that would be 6 months.

vivapanda: It is an amazing neighbourhood, especially the biking path is some great dutch work ;)

bu the timber framed house and the name/style of the church seems more German to me, being Dutch myself. But beside the name it is awesome!

A: Thanks, well, i think i made a mistake choosing those apartments then.

111222333444: Nice to see that :D

A: oh, thank you! :D

NMUSpidey: I think Maxis made some really nice buildings. I don't mind seeing them pop up, the only problem arises when there's too much repetition, which I honestly don't think is a problem in your cj. Another nice update, by the way.

A: Thank you very much for this positive comment!

Schulmanator: Looking good. Keep up the awesomeness!

A: thanks! I will :P

emperordaniel: Very beautiful! The third pic is the best imo :thumb:

A: Thanks! :)

Konieboy: I come from holland, and I have some comments to make:

The houses are indeed german, and the "first buildings constructed" are much more new yorkish, so you won't find any of this houses in a typical dutch town. When you search for "Amsterdam" in the STEX, you'll find much dutch houses which fit in your town very well.

The church is also very german. Again, if you search for "Dutch church", you'll find much. Besides, the dutch word for church is kerk.

Besides that, it looks pretty good!

Urkrelgrue: Roermond actually lies in Limburg very close to the German border so it isn't odd that it 'looks German'. I don't think you'll find many churches like the one u used in holland (i.e. the area around Amsterdam and Rotterdam) where most of the people who settled in the new world came from. It looks awesome but it doesn't look dutch; maybe a canal and canal houses would help.

A: I think i was not clear there, the corner buildings were suposed to be dutch, but someone said before, they are german, and that church i found as being a dutch churche, so it is not my fault.

wiecher: I see a lot of people having comments on the church, saying that they are Dutch and that the church looks German.

But apparently, they don't know their country that well, because that church in the picture is the Munsterkerk in Roermond.

I like your CJ and it looks perfectly realistic as a Dutch settlement in the new world.

A: Oh snap! and thank you very much XD

Whysomadyo: Lol, people never see anything with a gentle eye. Always searching for the most minimal errors to criticize. The church is actually Dutch, but the row houses are more new york, but still fit in so well i dont really care :P Really nice!

A: That is true. Again, i was not very specific about which houses i was talking about.


Gold is a neighborhood created in the 18th century for the rich people in the city. Well, it was, first, but then it became crowded and mixed, with poor and rich people.

This is the area. It is served for only 2 subway stations, Yellow Line.


2. An old school from the 18th century.


3. This is the area created for the construction of the mansions, they don't exist anymore.


4. Saint Bartholomew Church


5. The area around the church and the NB Cemetery.


6. Some apartments from the 19th century.


7. Some old houses made of wood.


8. Grand Central Station, the first station to be built.


9. There was a building where the rail is now, but they had to demolish it for the construction of the rail.


That was Gold, a very nice neighborhood.

Please comment ;)

The city is very nice. Um, I'm not criticizing and I'm not implying anything behind this question: On the fifth picture from the top, did you mean to have all those Maxis buildings? I mean, I really enjoyed this entry, but honestly, I didn't really like that repetition. Ah... just a little detail, there... 5/5. :D
