First, Credit where credit is due...

Uroncha - SAM Stopper

Jeronij - JRJ Seawalls, JRJ Concrete Wall V2

PEG - CDK and OWW2 lots

JBSimio - SmalltownUSA lots

The above nods are in use, thanks for making them folks. Now on to the update...

One of the three main cities in the tri-city region is Laceyville. Here are some images of its humble beginnings. The drive into town doesn't offer a very pleasing sight if you look toward the tank farms to the north.

Early 20th century industry, spewing waste into the water and the air. The view to the south is much more appealing to the eye.

These are two of the three roots to Laceyville's birth. Industry and commercial fishing. The third is the same as the rest of Lacey County...

...you guessed it. Agriculture. Here we see it being pushed back in favor of living closer to town. All of the county would have been nothing but farm towns if it weren't for the marine influence. Those expensive beach lots were the last to go. But we can see that the well-to-do were quick to grab the prime real estate...

I'll end with a closer view, and then an aerial view of the fledgling city of Laceyville.

Hope y'all enjoyed the update. I don't know how fast they'll come, but I will post them as I can.

This is some fine work you have. The custom content blends very nicely with the Maxis content. The seawall usage isn't over-the-top but placed strategically. The bridges are also well designed and the fences give it a nice touch. Overall, great work!

Thanks JGellock.  I owe thanks to Phoenix7 and Jetty Jockey for pointing me to the custom content after my last entry. In the next update, I'll show it's usage in the setting they discussed.

Sweet !  Looks great. Where did you get the left turn lanes for roads? I have them  on my avenues, but they're lacking on my smaller roads. Maybe I need to see if my NAM needs updating. :p

@ Jetty Jockey : It is one of the options you can choose when you install the NAM

Nice update! Very realistic too!
