So here is an idea what just come into my mind few days ago. with the time being, I feel like SimCity 4 almost feels like to be turned into a sandbox games (mostly done by my experience of playing this game from 2008). Although I still use the "city grows" and such thing in SimCity 4, but its feel different with how I played SimCity 4 back in 2008-2009 days which is to grow the city from zero and pretty much use all of its functions.
This Journal which I just start is mutually independent from my other CJs (I still do my other CJ anyway). It will basically show the progress of a city grow from zero with how it might be intended to be by the original Game, I still uses mods as usual (East Asian Plugins) but I will limit myself if possible not to use any cheat or any related trick (such as using mods). I might also uses some eye candy stuffs (such as slopewall etc) but try not to use any plopable commercial or residential). Also please note that in future post (and this post) I'll post some raw ingame image (might also include the user interface) so forgive me if somebody don't like it.
Anyway here is the setting for this CJ, I reused the map from my 2009 stuff, Starfishland which I renamed it into something much better. Anyway here is the location where I would like to start:
I'll start the city and named it "Wakaba" (means "Young Leaves" in Japanese, suggesting a symbol of a new start).
As a start in SimCity 4, I'll just make a several grid block of residential, commercial and industrial as well as the powerplant next to industrial
The community has turned into a small town
Economy looks fine for the start (I plan the trees in god mode since I forgot to do it at start lol)
Anyway that might be for the start, let me know how you think about it if I should continue this or no.. Thanks for reading...
