Nice! I like it. And for islands, how about: Eik Eiland, Esdoorn Eiland, Maaxis Eiland [a little liberty with the Dutch... ], Groen Eiland, Weinig Eiland, Simtropolistaad Eiland [another liberty...], and of course Katje Eiland!

@Schulmanator: I’m glad you like it. Those names are great! Is Katje Eiland founded by feline immigrants? Haha

This looks really nice. Good job

@Adooxx: I’m happy you enjoyed it, thanks a lot!

That is amazing work there!Although I wouldn't want to ride my bike down that hill in the 1st picture:It's a little too steep in my opinion.

@Nathanthemayor: Thank you very much! I don’t know why I made it that steap, probably because of lack of space, thanks for noticing.

That is a really cool update. That is some unique terraforming and it's made for some really great pictures. You do indeed have a great cj and you earned your spot in the BTT. 5/5! As for Ember Island, I think #4 looks appropriate.

@NMUspidey: Thank you so much! I’ll keep that name in mind, I’ll come back on it later, thanks for handing it in!

Great region pictures!

@Hahei: Thanks!

The region is coming along nicely and looks pleasant... a nice place to live.

@SchulmanatorThank you! But there’s still plenty work to do J


The outer port quarter in Bijsterveld is a quarter with old factories and abandoned houses. The surroundings do give the area a lot of potential, time for a make-over!

A long cupper factory dominates the area, next to it are some fuel tanks. The quarter is also home to FC Drukeenpunt Bijsterveld, one of the best teams in the Heimen Football league


Most of the industry will be torn down except for the cupper factory which will be transformed in a building with small shops, cafés and studios for artists


While construction has begun let’s take a look at the area a little north of the factory. There’s a boulevard called Havenlaan (Port Avenue) this is one of the busiest roads in Bijsterveld during rush hour


One lane of the avenue will go trough a tunnel the other one where it’s now.


Back to the building site: the tunnel is getting shape, and a terrace is made for a new subdivision.


Both of the building sites from a different angel


The canal being made smaller to make more space for the tunnel. Above the tunnel there wil be a park.


It was quite a hard job to build in the swampy soil, but the tunnel is finished
