The Region of Rodentia: Introducing Squirrelton



Growing tired of Mayor Nibbly’s insatiable and reckless spending, certain residents of Marmot Hollow have decided to settle into an adjacent plot of land in Rodentia. They have stayed true to their Rodential roots and after spotting a multitude of squirrels in this new land, they have aptly named their new town Squirrelton. Citizen Michael Nutter (rumored have had previous mayoral experience in a certain City of Brotherly Love) was voted in as mayor after running on a promise to increase the squirrel population of Squirrelton x100.



Of note are the various waterways that run through Squirrelton. Mayor Nutter wistfully called the island in the middle “The Bunny.”


Squirrelton now boasts 503 residents. Mayor Nutter boasts daily when he calls Mayor Nibbly, describing Squirrelton’s coastal potential in great detail to the mayor of the neighboring land-locked town.


The High School’s mascot Chase Nutly of the Squirrelton High Fighting Squirrels is allowed to scamper freely throughout the town. Residents are encouraged to spread peanut butter on their lawns in order to increase the chances of Chase blessing the baseball team. The current season record between the Fighting Squirrels and the Marmot Hollow Woodchippers is 2-3.


Further up the cliffs, craftsman PJ has built his workshop. He specializes in creating wooden and stone sculptures of squirrels. Other rodent species are available on special commission. Please allow 5-10 years for completion.


Other residents prefer riverside property. It’s a pleasing scene to wake up in the morning and catch a glimpse of Chase Nutly wading ponderously in the Bushy Tail River.


Seen here are offices in the town proper. Recently Rodentia’s first law firm Walnut, Hazelnut & Acorn LLC opened its doors. First case taken was M. Nutter v. Craftsman PJ’s Dog.


Nutter Park is pleasing to the eye yet is suspected of being the source of a booming mosquito population that torments Squirrelton at dusk. Michael Nutter has proposed the importation of bats as a natural form of bug control. “Sure they’re not rodents. But they’re like rodents. With wings,” he said.

Nice! What is the railway mod you appear to have? I mean, the dirt doesn't extend out as far as default.

Hey thanks guys! Although I've been tinkering around with SimCity 4 for years, I'm new to City Journaling. Been having a lot of fun with it--learning new stuff every day and it's cool to do something that involves both divergent and linear thinking. (That's my nerdy thought-of-the-day) ;)

Hahei: The rail is SimPeg's [url="http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=176"]Alternate Rail Set Mod[/url]. The default Maxis rail looked odd with the Appalachian terrain because for some reason the two of them combined took away all of the dirt texture underneath the rails. Not sure why though.
