Daveopia Maturing

Turth Zero

Welcome to the second update of my city! Daveopia is currently at 120,000 population and growing nicely. We will take a look at some aerials, large parks, the heart of my city and a before/after pic to cap the post off. Enjoy, leave a comment!

Great to finally have a worthy simcity replacement!

Current, overall view of Daveopia. Its interesting how issues start creeping up once a city starts to creep horizontally, the city itself is the challenge. Ive been utilizing mass transit and park techniques to max. areas. Still the same city I initially started with. The fudge population is currently 875,000. For those who dont have that population mod its great.

Zoomed in of my most successful area. Lots of the top tier buildings. One of the things I like best about this game is there is a long duration of time needed for an area to fully mature. Makes yah feel like you earned it.

Showcasing the opposite of the last picture, a quiet street. I dotted single squared light residential to ensure things remained sparse.

Here is a view of the city in the background and a neighborhood in the foreground.

Ive been trying to place large parks in the center of dense residential areas and connect everything with paths. Placing a subway station somewhere along the path will help ensure it actually gets used.

Zoomed out view of this area. I would say I designed this place when my population was under a 100K so it has taken a few hours to mature.

Basketball area underneath some transit. Looks neat.

This circle has turned out to be the center of my city, I never really intended for it to be though in the beginning. The way the subway system is set up its like three large loops and each touches right here. There are at any time hundreds/thousands of little daveopians running around this thing.

A zoomed in view of the circle. Busy busy.

Alot of people subway hoping here.

Here is an interesting before and after. We have above Daveopia population 75K, roughly same as entry 1. This area was a failed experiment to get people to work in the adjacent industry. Outside of an established area near the center of my city, industry refuses to attract workers. So I gave the area a little tender love and care....

And the after. Mucho upgrade. The large squarish building is the aquarium in the foreground. There are several differences between the two picks, some pretty subtle, but interesting.

Till next time!

Hope you enjoyed!
