Hello and welcome to my very first city journal!
The idea of this journal is to follow the natural development of a city without the use of planning. In this journal you will not find maps of the future transit system or pictures of skyscrapers on the first page. Instead, if you choose to follow this journal, you will be following the story of how a small settlement will eventually grow and grow and grow until, at some point in the distant future, it will become a huge metropolis.
Now, I won't pretend this is my own creative mind at work. The idea to build a natural developing city came directly from CSGdesign's Natural Growth CJ which I have been following for a few weeks. I liked the basic idea of it so much that I decided to give it a go myself. If you haven't read his CJ yet I would advice you to do so if realism is what you are looking for in CJ's. He also explains in detail what exactly natural development is in SimCity 4. Of course I could copy and paste what he wrote, but come on... that would be stealing.

Mods, props and other custom content
I currently have a LOT of custom content installed and naming every single one of them here would produce an enormous list. So instead of having a list I'll just mention any CC worth mentioning in each entry. Of course you're also free to ask questions about a particular mod/BAT/whatever.
Please don't expect me to update this CJ every single day. Like many of us I too have a job and other responsibilities in real life which takes up a lot of my time so please don't spaz out when there's suddenly a 2-week gap between entries. Playing the game, taking and editing pictures and writing these entries takes quite a bit of time so please be patient.
For now I would like to wish everyone a fun time reading my journal! Suggestions, of course, are always welcome.
