The Region of Rodentia: Marmot Hollow Rising



Marmot Hollow:

A mere handful of years have passed since its founding and Marmot Hollow currently has around 760 residents, all of whom pledge their allegiance to the justice, prudence, and fortitude embodied by Rodentia (both Region and order). Mayor Nibbly of Marmot Hollow attributes the town’s rapid population growth to recent arrivals from Sim Nation. “They come to see the marmots and stay for the cheese,” he was quoted as saying in Tuesday’s Marmot Hollow Gazette.

Seen here is Marmot Hollow Area Community College during its Phase 1 of construction. Mayor Nibbly initially presented the plans for a college while Marmot Hollow’s population was at 67 residents. Monique Diamond was not pleased.


The idea of burrowing underground domiciles was tossed around at the last town meeting but was finally deemed too expensive4ad8afc4.jpg.

Mayor Nibbly’s home and gardens. The job position of chamberlain is currently vacant. Duties include supervising house staff, ordering new dinnerware as the need arises, and taking a daily census of Mayor Nibbly’s 123,602 pet mice.


The Community College has helped establish a pragmatic yet thriving middle-class in Marmot Hollow: concerned with the environment yet still reverent of traditional values such as tending to dairy cattle for sacred cheese. Mayor Nibbly somewhat compulsively mentions this fact whenever Monique Diamond is in the room.

Thanks for viewing Marmot Hollow and my City Journal of Rodentia! :)

Wow, that looks incredibly daunting to build on! I like it, the rough, interesting terrain will make for some cool pictures, just like these ones here!

Hey, thanks, guys! :)

It took me a while to figure out how to make the lots built on hills to look right. Finally found using a mixture of laying out streets & zones, bulldozing/de-zoning, then finally putting a final zone down works really well.

Nice! Sort of reminds me of a cross between Schulmania and Watership Down.
