Awaken to an industrial revolution!

Sign in to follow this  


Welcome back!
We take another look at Anderson tonight with a population of just over 10,000; the city is growing fast and moving from town to small city quickly.
Some new developments include the following:
  • New heavy industry entering the city.
  • New manufacturing has entered the city.
  • New retail areas have sprung up in or near major intersections.
  • Due to increased jobs we have added 9,500 new residents – about 50/50 between unqualified and qualified.
  • One new water tower built for continued growth.
  • A new high rise hotel opened in downtown.
  • Two new medical clinics opened on the outskirts of town.
  • A new city dump/landfill for industry and growing demands of residents.
  • The widening of Bellview St. from City Hall to Kingsley Rd.
    • This also adds additional ways to enter town. Until this you could only enter town via Main St.
  • City Council has heard several citizens about the need for new educational or city-wide schools. The council has moved forward in preparing to zone areas for at least two schools within the next year.
  • City Council has voted to build another water tower within the next two years as demand increases.
  • City Council may vote in the next month to build Anderson’s first power plant if the city can assure a renewable source of fuel from other cities in the region.
Please stop by and visit and we look forward to your comments and seeing you soon!




















Hurry back soon to find out what happens next in Anderson!

I can only imagine how those spaces will be filled when the town gets bigger.  Your playing style is complete different than mine during beta testing.

Thank god you started a Cities XL.

Once people see what you can with city journals and cities XL, hopefully they'll at least give the game a chance before moaning about it.

I love your approach to the journal. Interesting development style, which would be different to my own. Therefore I will be interested to see how things work out. Got to say, I completely agree with kookalang.

Keep it going. Look me up when copy finally gets delivered and I'm online.

Honestly... the graphics are amazing!  I'm going to wait a little to consider buying CXL, but still.... those graphics are great, and I'm glad to be seeing the first CXL journal.  I'm still waiting to hear about what gameplay is like.  Can't wait to see the next update!
