Hello everyone. I am a long time Sim City 4 fan. After a long break from the game I have gotten back into it and I am starting this City Journal to display my new efforts to create a bustling metropolis.
But this is no ordinary City Journal.
Tayonas will be built from the ruins of Celestia, a dead and trashed city on the river of Procloroush. One hundred and thirteen years ago (or 1996 our time), the scientists of the city started experimenting on a new form of power generation. This revolutionary technique manipulates the basic bonds between atoms to release huge amounts of power. This technique, known as "The Rush Technique", was similar to Nuclear fission.
But with great rewards came great sacrifice. A freak accident in the main test plant caused a chain reaction that unleashed a force similar to an Atomic bomb on the city. Fire and radiation spread throughout Celestia, killing most of its residents. Those that remained abandoned the city. The governments of the planet barred the city as a Radioactive dump, cutting off all human contact to it.
Eighty four years passed before anyone dared to enter. It was theorized that the Radiation left behind by the event would be almost permanent, but to their surprise the Radiation had almost completely dissipated. With this discovery, plans had been started to repopulate the city by the one hundred and fifteenth year after the event.
So that's where this City Journal starts. 113 A.E (After Event). I will chronicle my efforts to revive this city. I will display my methods and techniques to achieve the most efficient and praiseworthy ways of establishing a functioning environment for the more advanced Sims that will inhabit this once barren wasteland.
I have created Celestia (and destroyed it >) to look like a grid city with no special mods or lots added to it. This in no way represents how I build, I forced myself to build this crappy city to rebuild in an amazing fashion.
PRELIMINARY SATELLITE IMAGERY
*Please excuse the fraps FPS counter, it takes it in the shot even though I specified it to not show it. I will fix it for the next round of images*
