Alright folks, we are ready To go in a cross country trip to Plantation Bay, one of the largest cities in this country, for the Extreme Gaming Conference, and see previews and gameplay of the new city-building game to be released.

The trip is a 4500 mile flight across this country (United Cities), but we're going to make several stops.

In this trip, me, and a few other gaming enthusiasts are leaving The Great Coast behind, and going to the Capital of United Cities (UC) to the Gaming conference to see the amazing new games coming out, especially SimMetropolis 5!

First off, here's a map for reference as to we're we're going:

The trip: First, we'll fly out of the Great Coast and land near Temperance lake, a lake surrounded by beautiful mountains and hills. (similiar to the east mountains in the United States in real life). Then we'll fly over the ocean to the West United Cities continent (We're currently on East United Cities) to the airport near Plantation Bay. Then we take a 4 hour drive to Plantation Metropolis, which is the capital of UC.

Let's Begin...

7 am

A beautiful sunny morning at Coastland Metropolis, right here we're picking up our last buddy, Mike. (Michael Homes) He works in the Khallulu Observatory (the highest observatory in this world) and is currently on vacation here at Coastland Metropolis.

We take the main avenue...

and get on the highway...

We're finally in Ashville Metropolis...(Or what used to be...)

Here we pass by some abandoned factories that survived the great catastrophie that destroyed this city (see earlier entries)

Most of the traffic you see there is from the busses going to Ashville City (north of this city) which is perfectly intact.

Here we pass by the Ashville University Campus:

Mayor Jack Green, take care of your Coastland County cities!

I will! Don't worry, we got this! Enjoy your trip!

Not much of an airport, but it does its job. We waited over 2 hours but finally got on the plane!

Really like that last pic of the city. 

 

And I agree with Feeroz on the slope mod. Your highways look a bit treacherous.

Wait, The Great Coast is on Mars? o.O

 

Nice update, except for, well...you know.

 

The washed out photoediting is a bit much as well.

It's actually in a planet several light years away from us orbiting a star like ours, and it has the same homosapien species that exist here, and speak english! Planet Name: RS-450-HM-1005

  Dennis Brown never bothered smoothening roads since he went only for population (and managed 996,000 before the city's destruction!) :D

 

Fictional wiki quote:

 

"Even after the city's destruction, the road system remained very well intact. Ashville Metropolis was known for its notoriously bumpy roads, especially the Interstate-45 Exit, due to the rough terrain on the northern section of The Great Coast. It is pressumed that Mayor Brown intentionally made them bumpy as a deterrent to prevent speeding, which instead ended up wrecking many cars, and the 9000 cars that passed through the main roads every hour certainly didn't help either. They were the blame for the many car accidents, especially on a highway that went northern to the industrial city where over 30,000 cars commuted every day to work.

Actually, I was assuming that the United Cities in Question were like Nathanthemayor's UC, and thus, via the first page in the CJ (I have no intention of perusing all 50 pages for a potential location change) the United Cities are on Mars. I'm not meaning to be contradictory here, just explaining where I got my impression from. These are clearly a different UCs then, right?
