This update will feature Rockmont Airport, also known as Rockmont Royal Air because of its boarder to Anderson, the center of all government activity in Piedmont.

(below) This is a satellite picture of what is collectivly known as North Piedmont, at the top right corner we see the airport (Rockmont Air) and Anderson just to the south of that.

(below)This is what the airport looked like upon completion. It was built in order to reduce stress on the main international airport in Delphy as well as cater to the upper class and government officals in Anderson.

(below)This is what current Rockmont looks like. Industry and some lower end commerce set up shop here and the airport is thriving.  Also the windmill farm across the river is an effort to totally convert Piedmonts power grid to 100percent green energy.

(below)Here is a look at the terminal entrance and parking.

(below)Same angle as above just scrolled up a little to show more gates and more of the terminal.

(below)The smaller planes at gates on the second terminal are commuter jets and business express airlines.  This helped provide a major commerce boost to Anderson as well as Piedmont as a whole.

(below)Here is the same picture just at a differant angle. The smallest gate on the terminal located on the right side of the picture, is where the Governmental Aircraft sits, being as it isn't in its gate I would say that Piedmont officals are off in other places conducting diplomatic work.  The airport here was chosen for offical government aircraft in order to avoid crowds and also to prevent an act of terrorism or an attempt on the lives of anyone onboard the plane.

(below)After compeltion of the airport, the hotel (building with pool and tennis courts) was built in order to accomidate travelers, businessmen, celebrities, and even foreign heads of state when visiting Anderson, or as an alternative to avoid congestion, delays and crowds at the international airport.

Memoguillermo33: this sounds lame.. but I look at like google maps or something to get an idea of how the city sprawl (in real life) looks and model what I build in the gaem off that. Also some cities are more suburban and some are really built up. I really appreciate the comments though.

Nickuga, same here I look at local maps and try to make cities match. It's interesting how good or bad real city planning is.
One day I intend to make my home city of Worcester, England and I KNOW I'll have a transport nightmare ;)
