1: A New Start




While doing this, I ask if you can give me constructive criticism or there is something I am doing wrong, this is my first time so assistance would be nice. First of all, this map is not mine. It was created by Izidor44 and it is a amazing map, even though too massive but it replicates the NYC metro area so perfectly. Big shoutout to that guy, so yeah... I begin my journey on recreating the NYC area flavored to my tastes.


As you all may know, we all know what New York is. NYC is one of the biggest cities in the world and the most populated in the United States...... I want to recreate it in the way I want, starting with Manhattan.


What am I planning to do is that I want to do Manhattan how it looks in real life with skyscrapers, dense zoning, etc. Yes, I am using mods and unlock cheats, but I am recreating this the way I feel, not for competition.

All other boroughs will have urban sprawl techniques I have spent months fabricating to put in Simcity. There will be downtown areas, and also, grit too.

New Jersey side will have the same, but I will develop with rapid hi-tech industry and where there are deciduous areas like down north, etc will be rural communities.

The sea will have some fabrications to it too, so stay tuned as I will update you all on it.

Nothing much to say here, but some progress coming soon !!!
