Alejandro24x2: ¡Gracias por tu comentario y felicidades por el Trixie! I feel quite proud of my latest update, I put a lot of my feelings on it. My area's industrial sector has been hit really hard these last years, and you can be sure this update shows this fact.

Adoxx: Thanks for your comment! Gotta love elevated highways!

ggamus: As I said to The Wrench, my trip to the then-standing Shea Stadium in New York riding the 7 service was a great inspiration for this CJ.

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, RL is going hard on me. No SC4, no Beer make TekindusT go crazy. My T&R time is tending to zero these days, because I'm mostly rebuilding Barnanova when I've got the time to do that. Guess I'll show it when I have something good enough.

Also...

Guys... you're awesome! So many thanks! Now, with the update!

One day, at the comments section, Evillions asked if I had considered recreating a T&Rusty part of LA. I told him I would give it a try someday although not being much into it. Here's the result:

It's 1985. Marty McFly's adventures on time are a perfect excuse to go to the movies, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar rules on Inglewood's Forum, communists are the enemies and Compton is the place to be for emerging rappers, criminals, and gangs. A dangerous place.

Heroin is sold like candy in front of the middle school, and cops do nothing on this; as they would lose their own dealer.

At dusk, right below United Airlines' landing planes, gang violence breaks out and there will be action at the local hospital. Again. Only a few miles separate Compton and Rodeo Drive, but sometimes, distances aren't just measured in miles.

"Distances aren't just measured in miles"... perfect words to describe southern California.

I wish you would get into making LA hoods, because I think you've got a lot of potential in a rarely-touched area of CJing if you do :)

Impressingly good work, even though most of what you show was Maxis houses.

And Congrats on the Trixie.

This is crazy. I remember you starting this journal in 2010 and followed it for a bit. I also remember the journal where we followed a taxi around the city.
Of course life got in the way a little and stopped looking on the site. I'm surprised it's still going to be honest! It looks great!
Keep up the good work man.

Oh my... I wonder why I didn't saw this before?! :O

Although there really isn't much to Compton, you done a pretty good job with this. I like how you used the duplexes and power-lines.

Again, great job with this. :)
