Ettlebrook County

A Whole New Region!

For the past couple months this city journal has been very idle, but that is about to change!

I've started a whole new region for Ettlebrook county, and using SC4Terraformer I've created a custom map, here is a little information about the map.

  • 12x12 Large City Tiles
  • Large Lake
  • Small "Mountain" / "Hill" Chain
  • Oceanside City Tiles
  • River
  • Many Small Streams
  • Islands
  • A Few Sink Hole

Now, there is a list of things I am hopefully going to include in the region, a few of them are listed below.

  • A High Speed Rail system, using the "High Speed Rail Project" MOD found on the LEX
  • A USA Style of Highways, Interstates, and County Roads, using the "Real Highway" MOD found on the LEX
  • A INTERCITY Express System connecting my larger cities
  • A very developed rail system designed after railway systems near my home town of De Smet, used both for Passenger and Freight travel. (Using the NAM-RAM Railway Addon Mod" found on the LEX
  • My #1 Goal is to have a realistic working and looking region, which means some city tiles will be just farm fields, leaving little to showcase.

​Here is the thing about my city journal, I'm going to use it as if it were a showcase of the county through time starting and staying in the idea that it is the 1990's-2000's. And it'll kinda work like every time you read an entry it's as if it were a trip to the museum of the town/city/area showcased and you were reading off an exhibit. This in mind there will also be a counterpart to the city journal where it will be a journal of what the mayor or appointed person of the showcased region would keep about what has happened to the city/town/area.


What would you add to either list I have presented to you? I want your input!

UNTIL NEXT TIME, JKRMC SIGNING OFF! (Not really, I never sign out on my personal computer.


OH, I almost forgot, I wrote this all while listening to a song, the specific song being "Shake Tramp - Marianas Trench". If you are not against swear words, you should listen to this song!
