Zones of Ionica - Hegemony

Welcome back,

Thanks for all the feedback and encouragement.

hahei - For sure the theme is cyberpunk, but there are a few Zones on the edges that are less dense and futuristic. I'm always experimenting with rural tools here and there.

IL - The building the in last picture of my previous post is the by Cobb32118. I like the idea that my city sprawls as much underground as it does on the surface. Unfortunately in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0xVp3N-M84, the movie I posted a trailer for in my last entry, is a kaleidoscopic, global compilation of both natural events and by fate, life and activities of humanity on Earth. The film is montage of footage of various landscapes, churches, ruins, religious ceremonies, and cities thrumming with life, filmed using time-lapse photography in order to capture the great pulse of humanity as it flocks and swarms in daily activity. To get an example of what Samsara is going to be like check out Chronos.

terring & Mastof - Thanks for the tips. I will definitely try to implement your advice in the next Zone I build on uneven terrain.

Updates

The Maxis building Construction contract with the Ionican government has finally ended. The Maxis Construction Company (MCC) will no longer build any Residential, Commercial, and Industrial buildings in Ionica. The Ionican government cited the ugliness of pretty much all Maxis buildings as the main reason for severing the contract early. The free market has triumphed again! The CEO of the MCC stated that the contracted ended on amicable terms and despite the massive downsizing of the company they will still be building private schools, parks, and a few civic buildings. The head of the MCC union has reached agreements with other construction companies like the Bixel Group and ILL Tonkso Corporation.

Hegemony - Population 85,659

Hegemony - an indirect form of imperial dominance in which the hegemon (leader state) rules sub-ordinate states by the implied means of power rather than direct military force.

Hegemony is the newest Zone in Ionica. I wanted to build a Zone around one of many the scba or Fribe stadiums I recently downloaded (You can't have a functioning dystopia without bread and circuses). I ended up choosing the by scba. Unfortunately it doesn't have nightlights, but it is very beautiful and that doesn't matter to me so much.

This is the first zone I've built with the BSC Maxis blocker and I'm pretty happy with the results. The Zone isn't 100% finished, by that I mean I want to replace a few buildings here and there to get that really 'dense look'. I wanted to grow the a 14x6 R$$$ Lot, in front of the stadium but two buildings grew instead. I didn't make them historical and I hope that eventually the Millennium Residence will grow, but for now that doesn't matter.
