Saturday september 26th,2009, Clear Skys, moderate traffic, 56% chance of rain, highs in the 50's lows in the 30's


Trafic starting to get backed up on north Tryon. New Metro mall being bit above,(across the street from the Bank of america Tower plaza. And mega mall 2 beside the BOA( Workers have wrote complaints about smelling burning wires, Site forman has assured the workers that it just the smell of construction equipment, Citizens conserned.

Looking down South Tryon, at some large parking complexes, Again A nice Moderate flow in traffic nothing to hectic


A nice cool, summers,  (Theres been a recent council meeting about (non handicap citizens taking handicapped spaces, I plan to put a stop to this soon.

Eye in the sky above downtown,  Curtisy of the New's 10 chopper,The contruction boom going on is showing no signs of slowing, The vue bottom Left, And one bank of america middle top. The vue seem's to be rising quite quckly, with the duke energy center Far right (out of focus) not fat behind it. While 210 trade, has sadly been put on hold do to Zoning issues,   Sim's are enraged on the lack of public transpertation due to Cab drivers holding up city busses. This problem will soon be resolved.


New Base ball stadim construction will begin october 13th, Keep on watch.

Atop The Bank of america Tower, curtisy of New's 10 chopper, The Crown gleaming brightly.


Celebrity sitings downtown continue as we catch Jessica alba, Seen shopping at a popular department store was seen pulling away in her brand new 2009 gunmetal silver mercedes CLK AMG,

It appear's miss alba was trying to escape her crazed fan's, But not only that, it appears that megan fox was seen sitting

in the passenger seat.


Hellow and welcome back to the fox 10 oclock news,  Breaking new's out of charlotte N.C

Tragic new's has struck The Queen city.


The new multi Mega plex metro mall Came to a fiery fate september 27th 2009, Witnisses say they could see black heavy smoke pouring out of

the 3rd story, on the scene, Fire cheif Mark Hamely station # 11 had this to say," It was an enferno, Every thing was engulfed in flames, It was like hell on earth, One of the worse fires i have seen in my 34 years on duity,There was nothing left, but all the construction workers escaped with no harm done to them"  Fire fighters were battiling the blaze for 2 day's straight, Eventually, Sadly the 2week old building Collasped due to some faulty design flaws,  The Fire was said to be caused of a malfunctioning Current that sparked through out the entire building, while on the 2nd floor it set fire to a industrial Generator.  No lives were loss, But it has left a very big scar, as well as scaring the BOA in blaze setting fire to the 4th story.  Construction is set to start in December after all the rubble has been cleared.

Stay tuned for updates.

Sorry for the wait, alot of school and work,

Traffic starting to build up along side Hearst tower alone E 149th Street,


IJL financial, Hearst tower, And Bank of america standing tall over looking the skyline.

400 south tryon building along with (Duke energy center construction bottom left) (Edit: it's hard to find Charlotte based build's but iv'e found a few here on the stex, on the lex, and on other site's i just had to look around. :D



My charlotte northcarolina,

Population as estimated 624.000 simleon's.    Real population 768.000, Still alot more to go, But i'm getting there, Enjoy this ariel shot, Time warner cable stadium(Carolina panthers) Mid right, High way I85 in the back ground. And some residential High wealth condo's As well a Vast ammount of Big Parking garages and parking lot's. I love them, add's a very urban feel to any Created city.  I as well love the charlotte lynix light rail system going around the city.    (And ALOT of tree's.)


Same picture but at night, Love the Realistic city lighting, Big thank's to the Stex,And all the Creators,modders,uploader's, You have been wonderful help in aiding me to build my home town :) I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Sun setting on the Big 3, For a game of this year, It sure does have beautiful stunning life like Sky lighting.


Another Sun set lighting, it so calm looking and soft, you can almost hear the car's wizzing down the street's and the nice cool breeze rustling the tree's.


I think i like this night shot picture the most, All the light's complement each other and don't Really clash.


And one more for good measure, See you on the second page :)

Very good.

I love Charlotte, I don't live to far away from it (Hickory so maybe 45 minutes) but it will be interesting to see how you develop it. So far it looks good, like Schulmanator said, it's good to see that you downloaded those buildings from the STEX. I'd love to see South Park Mall or some of the Myers Park area.

Good Luck!
