Matinenda's difference from Shayden.

I'm making Matinenda first of all for these reasons:

1. Shayden was babied:

It was never in wars, never in debt, no pollution, no crime. No problems to explain it. Or a Utopia. But with Matineadia I plan on actually playing the game without cheats (Except for some, like a military base for a big city to enforce security [You don't deserve it.] and to hide my unused zone color for pictures [zoneria])

2. I never made a location for Shayden:

I never said where it was because I wasn't sure for where to put it. And that kind of hurt the CJ even more.

3. "No Maxis Mod" will be in effect the whole time for Matineadia:

With Shayden I just slowly got more plugins and then just got the Maxis Mod. But with Matineadia I will have it in effect the whole time so it won't look unrealistic.

4. Unrealistic:

In my cities, I had residential right beside industrial in some of my cities. But once I got an eye for realism I didn't really care for the way I had made the old cities. Such as the Airport. I have six airports in Shayden and only one is customly made (in Orlean).

5. Better made map:

This map was made way better then how I made Shayden. This is where I've got the new map for Matinenda, thanks NHP! You can see it's better made then Shayden was, Shayden had a river and thats really it. But Matineadia has everything. Mountains, rivers, and it is 32x32 (Shayden is 15x15) So Matineadia is 2 times as big.

I'm really just saying, I've learned more, and I think it's time to try a new region. Shayden isn't going to be deleted off my computer, definitlely not. But now Matineadia has been moved to the priority region. I could to tell you the truth never delete Shayden, I got so far with it (deleting a region with 2,390,000 people living in it would be a kick to the gut eh?) so I'm definitley not deleting Shayden, and I will still play on Shayden occassionally. But for now like I've said 300 times before, Matineadia is now the main region. It will be vulnerable to whatever I decide to add to the storyline. Unlike Shayden that nothing bad ever happens. I will only use a money mod if for some reason my expenses get too bad. But I only intend on using it when the money count is about to go to the negatives. Later today I'll post the info for this region.
