Infrastructure 101

Sign in to follow this  


Growing oh so fast! Jordan is quickly approuching the 4000 inhabitants mark and garbage and sickness are becoming a real problem. In fact, just yesterday someone was reported to have been looking for oranges in the piles of garbage in the streets. He said he needed the vitamins. Time to take action!


The landfill for the towns garbage will be located north of the town.


Finally no more garbage in the streets!

With that taken care of it's about time this town gets some healthcare. People are now living here 24/7 and seeing a doctor all the way in Westwood isn't exactly a two minute drive. While plans for a hospital are being drawn up at city hall (which is also still being drawn up) the town has to make due with a small clinic. As long as it doesn't get worse than a broken bone you should be okay.


Don't you dare need surgery!

Being the mayor of this town must be a real crappy job, by the way. When people aren't complaining about healthcare, you've got residents and industry complaining they need a better infrastructure. Workers can't get to work and trucks can't truck anything out of town. Well fine, first things first.


Problem number 1. Give them traffic lights and all hell breaks loose.


Solution number 1. MORE ASPHALT!!

Problem number 2 required a more drastic approuch. The industry to the north is complaining that trucking goods out of town is almost impossible due to the clogging up of the mountain road. They demand a connection to the South East Delta Link. The council was opposed at first, but gave in as soon as they realized that laying down new train tracks would create a lot less hassle than upgrading the existing road. Train tracks it is!


The South East Delta Link splitting up with one track going to Jordan and the other to Mount Jordan.


The other end of the railline, ending at the base of Mount Jordan.

With the constant expansion of Jordan came the cutting of wood. A lot of cutting... of a lot of wood. Luckily there was a company who jumped at the opperitunity to... help out... with this problem. Cutt'em Logging Company settled just north of Jordan. Not far from the garbage dump.


Ready or not, trees. You're going down! (Structures in the picture are Pegasus' Saw Mill and its maintenance yard, who's link I could not find).

Just 1 thing, i think that you can use a water modd, mabey from Peg, it would make the satilite veiw look nicer,
however you don't need a terrain modd, the games default works well with those trees
