Bridge - Update 8



After a long break from sim city. I (finally) created a new update for Madison. In Riverside, there was a need for jobs, so city council made more industrial zones by the highway and expanded the port.


With the expanding industry, there was a need for more power and water, so Riverside bought more power from Madison and built a new water tower by the residential neighborhood.


Since industry was expanding rapidly, city council decided to place more industry on the other side of the river. So, plans were brought to city council and were approved.


Here is an overview of Riverside.

A couple of things: (Please don't be offended.)

1. That interchange is kind of... um, special-looking. You might want to take a look at some tutorials. Maybe [url="http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Tutorial:Making_Diamond_Interchages_with_the_RHW"]this[/url] one, in particular.

2. A slope mod would make your RHW and roads look a lot better.

3. There's a lot of open space. Try planting some trees or plopping some flora (MMP's)

4. You could try a terrain mod.

5. Use some custom content. Having a lot of Maxis and repetition in your CJ will do you no good.

Remember, this is just some constructive criticism. Please don't be offended. ;)

Thanks for the suggestions. I have tried a slope mod, but it was too frustrating trying to make simple roads. I also do not like using ploppables. I like the challenge of the game and I feel that custom content takes away from it. I will try to place more trees and I'll look for a terrain mod.

Your RHW: A simple Diamond or Parclo would suffice, I would strongly recommend taking a peek at Haljacky's RHW tutorial.
