Tuhle Naval Base

What growing nation doesn't feel the need to defend itself? This is Georgiana's primary naval base, located at Tuhle. Still a work in progress, the base houses numerous coastal patrol craft (corvettes), as well as frigates, destroyers, and cruisers (which look a lot like battleships). Facilities for submarines, large battleships, and an aircraft carrier are in the planning stages and dredging operations to deepen the channel are underway. (Side note: I have not yet started using Pegasus' PPonds for my water, despite suggestions that I should go ahead and do so. Yes, it would add a very realistic feel to the cities, but that's a project for a later date.)

The original, quite small, pier for corvettes; precursor to Georgiana's burgeoning overseas ambitions.

The first major expansion project of the naval base, providing berths for small destroyers and light battleships. This is a long pier jutting out from the mainland into the roads.

The Coast Guard also has a facility at the bottom end of the basin, with a large cutter, helicopter (dispatched for a rescue mission), and several smaller craft. Note also the two corvettes in side berths.

Finally, a nice shot of the small frigates located opposite the coast guard facility at the base of the long pier. Note the Mediterranean moorings (stern) of the four corvettes, as well as the stern of the light battleship to the right.

Just to show that this city has a life outside the military, this is the nicely-developed downtown area just north of the corvette pier.

My heartfelt thanks to all of those wonderful people out there who have put together such wonderful BATs and lots that allowed me develop this section of my city.

Hi there. You're off to a great start, but I would take a look at some of the other seaports and Naval stations to see how you can add some diversity. I'd also suggest using a water mod.

Also try adding props to make the base look more defended. The more props that fit in with the theme (as well as putting the props in the right spots) the more realistic the base will be. Sometimes using satellite/image search to find out what most bases (take the San Diego naval base for example) look like will help with adding realism
