Thanks for commenting!

Well, it's been a while since I have been around Simtropolis. Too busy playing Minecraft I guess. But I started playing SC4 again and now I have an other update for you! There's also a video at the end.


Ah! The 50's, the era of nice cars, neon lights, and the invention of fast food. But the 1950's didn't start off too well for Whitevale. One reason is because experts have found out that Whitevale's water is filled with harmful chemicals and bacteria. Chemicals such as potassium, nitrogen and ammonium nitrate have been found in the water. The experts believe that most of these chemicals came from fertilizer used in Whitevale's thousands of nearby farms. The consequences of thousands of people drinking this toxic water are hundreds of sick patients and 14 deaths.

After about a year of proposal and deliberation, in the summer of 1950, a new water treatment plant was built just outside Whitevale.


This graph shows water pollution levels decrease over a 2 year period after the treatment plant was completed. (Each frame = 6 months)


Also, a new, much larger hospital was built in Whitevale's downtown replacing it's older, smaller one. It was completed March 29th 1952.

The engineers who designed the building wanted it to have an older style to compliment Whitevale's historic downtown.


The old hospital was demolished and new shops opened on the lot.


A closer picture.


This is a picture of DownTown Whitevale in 1952.


In that same year, a park was built in the very spot that the founder of Whitevale, Tim Plane's house once stood. The lake in the middle represents exactly where Tim's house was built.


Right beside the park, a nice 3 story apartment was built. Special thanks to "spa" for providing the SC4 community with his amazing BATs!


An other park was built on Main Street in an ugly abandoned field near a White River.


In recent years, Whitevale's numerous industrial complexes have grown substantially. This one is located on the north-east side of Whitevale.


This is the industrial complex at the mouth of the Burton River. You can see many new warehouses and factories were built.


We end this update in the year of 1953. This is Whitevale in June of the same year.



Here's the video you've all been waiting for! This video is the first video I made featuring Whitevale. It's just me driving around town.

Here's a link for Youtube :
