Columbus Indiana Aerial shot.

After laying out all the streets and county roads, measuring a large tile ended up being around 3.3 x 3.3 miles. I made a new region and added a large tile length across on the north and east side, so I could include Taylorsville and Hope, small towns in Bartholomew County. The geography and roads aren't perfect to scale by any means, due mostly to Sim City's annoying diagonal road limitations, and frustrating terraforming options after incorporating a city, but it's pretty darn close! I've been using google earth maps to help me out with most of it.

The limits of a diagonal road system can be overcome by use of the FAR ( Fractional Angle Roadways)) I don't know how it would work in an urban setting, but in a small town or rural venue, it works wonders.

Hey, first time I have seen this CJ. Believe or not I've heard of the real Columbus, IN before, it has some unusual modern architecture for a small town in the midwest. Also Cummins Diesel, right?

@ Jetty Jockey thanks for the advice I'll definitely look into it for further regions.
@ hamsterTK It really is an unbelievable architectural showcase. I'm usually a fan of bigger cities, but I've lived here and it's not too bad for a small city, and yeah, Cummins Engine Co. is the biggest employer in southern Indiana.
@SimCoug thanks!
