Samerton: Good news, your lucky day has come!


In Other News: Isabel has decided that at K-12 school would best help out the community, and so, construction has begun on that very recently. Also, Tom decided to park his old car in a lot, and take a train northward. He intends to come back sometime for the car


Also, terribly sorry for no update in an awfully long time. However, I am working on a new region! Hopefully I can make my first post on that by the end of August. Anyway, hope you all like this update!




Tom looked through, and found that of the few hotels in Isabel, he could afford none of them! Thinking fast, Tom walked across the street to the train station, hoping that he could find a decently cheap place to stay in the next town.




The sun set quickly, and soon, Tom had got a $10 ticket to the next city north, a city named Coast, which, incidentally has a complete lack of coastline.




Tom had to hop off at the first stop in Coast. He caught a bus which had ‘Downtown’ on the front, and rode along till he saw bigger buildings. Unfortunately, it was close to midnight, so Tom couldn’t see anything in the distance.




Soon, the bus pulled up to Main st. and “The S” Hotel, which, as soon as Tom stepped inside, realized it would break his bank before he checked into his room. Tom jumped on another bus, and was off.




Soon, Tom came upon another hotel, the more modest ‘Modest’ Hotel. Tom rented a room, had a cereal bar, and took a long, restful sleep.




As Tom woke up, he looked outside, where the sun had come up! Tom took another look at his ticket and realized that it wasn’t supposed to “expire” for another day, so, why not take the train farther north? Fortunately, there was a nearby train station.




Tom got on the next train, and took a look out the window as the city of Coast went by him.




Coast was probably best-known for its freight yard and surrounding industrial district, which handles what few goods move through HalifaxCounty. Coast was certainly grittier than any other city in the County.




Tom passed by another train station farther north, but decided to keep going.




Soon, the homes gave way to farms, and there didn’t seem to be a train station in sight.




The farms continued, and Tom began to think how he would get back to his car…


That’s all for this time! The update isn't that good, I think. I've spent a lot of time on my new region i'm working on, and, I'll even give a couple teasers!


The Region is based in a Southern-California area, but only loosely, since I have buildings from around the US.


Unfortunately, I didn't want to reveal too much! so this is a stripped down image. Hopefully I can start up the new CJ soon!

Nice journal, I like the photoshop effects, but you should put all the settings on high before taking the pics, it'll look more realistic :)

Very nice as usual! Nothing resists to you! Downtowns, farming communities, industrial districts, railyards, regular gameplay... What's next?

I like the train and rural areas! I agree with k50dude : it looks brilliant! The new CJ looks promising, too!
