@Benedict: Thanks for the kind words! 1.gif

@Fbi123: Um, I'm not sure what you are referring to. I don't think this CJ has any relation to Liberty City or any of the GTA games...

(Foreword: Please forgive this entry for being made almost entirely with Maxis content. I decided to go with it as it fit with the narrative of this particular CJ entry, but I can safely say that all entries going forward from here will be primarily custom content.)

Something Wicked this Way Comes

Let's go back a bit and visit Jefferson, California! The year was 2013, and Jefferson was the third largest city in California, with a highly-developed downtown area and well over three million people in its metro region.

Situated on a small harbor, it was the largest urban area between San Francisco and Portland, and a hub for the entire Northern California area.

In fact, as part of former Gov. Schwarzenegger's government reforms passed in mid-2008, the state capitol was moved to Jefferson in 2012, over Sacramento's very vocal protests.

Life in Jefferson was always busy. Cars lined the city's steep hills, and on every block you could see people out and about. With its thriving economy and very agreeable climate, Jefferson's future looked very bright indeed.

But that was then, and this? This is now....

Jefferson, California: 2025.

Today, the city sits empty, devoid of people. But for the wind and the sound of the sea, it is eerily quiet.

Many of the buildings in Jefferson are beginning to crumble from years of neglect.

Cars no longer drive upon Jefferson's decaying streets...

And when fires break out in the abandoned buildings, there are no people around to put them out...

Where has everyone gone?

Oooh, fun, letting an entire city go to rot! (Or did you take advantage of what was originally a mistake? :P )
