UPDATED Downtown Birmingham

Sign in to follow this  


Hello all and thanks for all the views and comments! We are now going to focus on the main city tonight.

Birmingham is the state capitol of Alabama and has 1,106,409 million people. (The city is based on Birmingham Alabama and is not the same as the real one. This city has about as much population as the real Birmingham Metropolitan area.)

Downtown Skyline



Jackson Bridge connecting Downtown to Midtown, along with Otis Island, a strange small island.


Downtown is home to the World Commerce Center. This is a five building complex where as all of them are some of the tallest in the city. (The really really bright building is part of the complex as the fifth tower.)


The small airport that connects to the islands out in the ocean part of the region.


Endless Buildings



The oldest bridge in the city. The bridge was built way before main development if the city was large. Historians believe it to have been built in 1760 to connect each side of the river together.


Lady Liberty, a symbol not only for the city, but one for the country.


Birmingham Rages Stadium, recently rebuilt after a massive fire roared through the city clearing many buildings.

Uh, I see many "inaccessible" zots in the pictures, and some empty zones, you might wanna get rid of those. And, there is a lot of repetition, as well as Maxis landmarks. I'm not trying to be rude, but to become a good and successful CJ, you need to make your city unique, and not something the viewers could whip up in a couple of minutes when they open up the game. Download some unique stadiums from STEX, LEX or other SC4 exchanges and replace the stadium in the last picture with one of those (just suggesting). Also, demolish the buildings that repeat each other, and let them be replaced by another building. If you really like a building that has grown, and you don't want it replaced, make it historical.

Find some beach mods, as well. There are mods which can extend your beaches, some can make them white.

I bet you know these already, but if you just do those, you'll be on your way to an amazing CJ.

Thanks all, this is my first Cj and I have worked on this city for around a year and decided to make it a CJ. I will try to fix the buildings that grow the same, but I have so many that my city would look empty..
