Update 69 - BAYVIEW: Industry and Suburbia

We shoot back up north a little to Bayview for this update. I really went all out "completing" this area. I hope you enjoy it.

An attempt at a beach. I originally plopped beach lots but those just didn't look good from the satellite view. So, I instead used MMP sand. My biggest issue is blending plop grass and beaches. Any tips???

More suburban style street layout and lots of trees!

Here is something fun I found! An old barn between two three-story lofts! What a cool, unintended, occurence!

I really feel a sense of accomplishment actually getting everything in this area done...waterfront done! Any tips on beaches and waterfront areas are greatly appreciated! Hope you really enjoyed this more "suburban?" update.

Check out the District of Wenzel Street Map to get an idea where we are.

That is one impressive mosaic. Uh, make that four impressive mosaics . I never thought I'd use the terms "beautiful" and suburban sprawl in the same sentence, but that's some beautiful suburban sprawl !

[size="4"]Thank you. Yeah, I'm starting to get to the point where my city can get a lot more suburban[/size]

Great use of parking space, also the layout is very well planned and flows incredibly well.

[size="4"]Planning is not really my strong suit, at least we these eastern (earlier) tiles.[/size]

Those mosaics were awesome... like, really awesome :P

[size="4"]I like to show a snapshot of my city and not just the sights, but the repetitive streets, hehe.[/size]

You are always making me awe to your suburban-creating greatness. (hope I conveyed the message :) )

[size="4"]I know there are people out there with better suburban skills...at least I thought so.[/size]

[size="4"]Yeah, I'm not a fan of suburban sprawl, but for some reason it looks neat in-game. I think it is the fact that it is something from real life and we are seeing in this game geared toward building URBAN cities.[/size]

Looks great :) Your large train yard seems to be lacking trains though :P
[/quote]

[size="4"]Yeah, that is something I am disappointed about, ha[/size]


[quote name='urbanconstanta' timestamp='1347378748']
that train yard is epic :)))

[size="4"]All big American cities have a least ONE train yard![/size]
