OlScare / Benoit

2,006 Views

Thanks a lot for the comments, replies in the previous update !

Here we are, this is the presentation of my new project ! :)

It's been quite some times now that I work on random tiles, and you don't want to know how my region looks like, from Chiesa Nuova, to Daventry Town, including Amazraou, French Riviera, urban and rural scenes, Oglio river etc... Yes, this is a big mess ! :)

I miss working on a region, with a global layout, region views etc... So the project is quite simple, to make a nice region !

You know me, this is not gonna be mass zoning. I want a detailed and functional region !

About the style, It's gonna be close from what you saw in Daventry Town. Some Euro-American mix.

I'll work on Coos Bay from Izidor, and I'll keep the name cause I love it. That being said, I'm not gonna reprduce at all the real Coos Bay in Oregon ! :)

I'll use Lowkee's terrain mod and Gobias new beaches.

1 - SC4 Terraformer render of the region.

2 - Here is the map, the way I want to work on the region, with the limits of SC4 in mind. Of curse I'm just starting so this is gonna evolve. Feel free to give me advices about that !

3 - Here is a teaser ! Yes I started with the CBD, just to work on the layout, terraforming, marina and some plopped buildings. I'll now work on the surroundings to make sure I have a big demand when I'll be back to work on the CBD.

I find your CJ really incredible, and, as an aspiring CJer, I was hoping you could give me some tips on enhancing my city journal, and city building in general.

I think the real Coos Bay is home to the tallest building on the Oregon coast, so it's fitting that this should be such a highly populated region :)

This CJ is one of the best I have read in a looong while! Love how its detailed and very realistic... Would love to see an airport or industrial park and port :)

Looks fabulous! :)
This region has an amazing potential.
I only have one suggestion after looking at your transport map. I think it might be good to provide a railway extension to service your industrial (and I assume harbor) area.
