Mountainview Lakes Updates

Sign in to follow this  


Since the previous entry on Mountainview Lakes, there has been a few changes.  The city now has a population of 20,000, the second city in Fairview to reach that mark.  Other changes are documented below:


Two Lakes University has grown as well, and is now the center of a new Education District, with schools, museums, and a library located around it.  Most of the remaining vacant land is reserved for future expansion of the Education District.  In the lower right of the above picture, a canal now connects Minot and Ambassador Lakes.


The rising price of gold has led to the reopening of an old gold mine on the north slopes of the Capp Mountains.  The mine has been modernized and a railroad line extended to serve the mine.  The mine is operated by Landgraab Industries.


A radio station now transmits from Mount Pleasant.  I located the station on the mountain because RL cities in mountainous regions have their television and radio transmission towers atop mountains.  I also replaced the Maxis deciduous forest with more realistic conifers since I want the mountain forests to resemble a Rocky Mountain forest.  I do not like how the game terraformer places the type of trees in certain terrain.  In the real world, high mountain forests are populated with conifers, not deciduous trees.


Backroads and trails are being laid in the Capp Mountains.  This is a fuel dump in the woods.

This concludes the update.

The gold mine pictured is the CSX Minecor Harmony Gold Mine from the LEX DVD available at the SC4 Devotion website.  It appears to be limited to the DVD.
