Jeffmaster223

Schedule!

'sup, everyone?

i have to tell you guys... and goils... somezing.

school's starting really soon. well, im not allowed to

be on the computer, or ANY electronic device when i have school. therefore, i can only update my journal

on the weekend

so i will be silent during the week :(

Jeffmaster223

yes, i'm BACK!! *yay!*

okay.

so i understand i've been silent for about a month, and that's because i was waiting for 10 comments on the last entry. the question was, "should the bridge be 2 one-way roads, or an avenue?

only 2 people actually bothered to vote, so thank you Lady pasta and thank you Frex_Ceafus

for voting!

the results were,

2------Two one way roads bridge

0-------avenue bridge

so the bridge is getting ready to be built. preparating the land for the bridge:

unledrxq.jpg

the other side:

unledjpt.jpg

the first bridge is built after 2 months! the citizens aren't happy, still.

why? because it only goes 1 way! they can't go the opposing direction!

unlednvg.jpg

a seawall is being constructed while the bridge is being finished!

check it out!

unledtad.jpg

the bridge is... DONE!! YAY!!

unledyjc.jpg

unledzlb.jpg

now that the bridge is done, traffic is running smoother now!

REJOYCE!!!

what's next?

why after 120 years is the mayor not dead?

do you even want to know?

you'll find out next chapter!

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

Hello, guys (and goils). this is a new update(duh).

So let's get cracking! (no pun intended)

Here is the new industrial area.

unledxq.jpg

Oh yeah. here's the region view right now.

unledzgg.jpg

okay... umm... here's some more industry, while the industry on the other side

unledyu.jpg

is being replaced by commercial, since there's so much demand.

unledgz.jpg

still, even though that the industrial area was supposed to be industrial,

some residents decided to live on the other side. however, due to the large

amount of industry, they'd have to live on the shore. here's a new neighborhood:

unledsm.jpg

The mayor recieved a large amount of complaints about bridge traffic.

to solve this problem, a port was built. A small one.

unledatv.jpg

Here's the other end:

unledito.jpg

more and more neighborhoods keep popping up like bad congressmen pop up in the senate!

unledxyw.jpg

the traffic on the bridge is STILL large, so the bridge will be upgraded.

unledcux.jpg

Okay. now here's a question i'd like to ask You the viewer:

Should it be an AVENUE or TWO ONE WAY ROADS?

when i get at least 10 responses i'll do the next chapter.

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

Hello, everyone! (yes i have no idea why the last chapter [the Wheels of something, i just don't know the name of it]

came before "the mayor's rage".) anyway, i'm going to start the airport. however, it isn't where the rest of the city is.

Dat's right! it's on the other side of the river! Here's the area:

unledpl.jpg

Construction has already begun... with an avenue running through the airport.

unledat.jpg

Let's get to building(Oh, and i'm not gonna comment, so it'll just be picture after picture).

unledlh.jpg

unledyq.jpg

unledmic.jpg

unledpd.jpg

unledlye.jpg

unledxqu.jpg

unledfys.jpg

unledxu.jpg

unledox.jpg

unledhrb.jpg

unledgs.jpg

unledxbw.jpg

This is what I think is the finished product:

unledygk.jpg

Tell me if it's good!

Jeffmaster223

The residents were stunned. they couldn't believe that their

beloved mayor destroyed their creation. Then the mayor screamed,

"ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!" The wind started to pick up.

"YOU WERE MINING COAL!?!" The wind started getting stronger.

"YOU GUYS ARE DOING THE SAME D**N THING THAT RUINED EARTH!!!" The wind started howling.

"AND NOW ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE THIS PLANET HAVE TO SHARE EARTH'S FATE, TOO?!?"

The wind was screaming. The residents could barely stand up in the wind.

Suddenly, a person yelled, "TORNADO!!!"

unledcs.jpg

The mayor, not surprised, held out his hand, and the tornado immediately stopped.

unledsk.jpg

The crowd, still stunned, the mayor stormed back to his house.

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

(I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS POST IS #9 AND NOT 10!)

The residents then remembered why the mayor was their mayor, and

why he was still alive all of these years. Listen closely:

HE HAS SUPER POWERS! I HAVE THE POWER OF AIR!

awesome, right? but that's going into my comic, so let's just stick to the CJ.

There is an unused rail road,

unledqe.jpg

And it's decided that the first avenue will be constructed there.

however, there wasn't enough ground, so yeah.

unledcxq.jpg

the land-moving has begun:

unledql.jpg

Finished:

unledskq.jpg

An airport is needed, but right now, the citizens want a bigger marina.

So here it is!

unledpw.jpg

The center area will be filled up with mid- rise residential buildings.

unledymq.jpg

So, with the marina finished, an airport is needed! however, there's simply not enough room!

The mayor, on the other hand, knows where to go.

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

assuming "ginormous" is a word...

Anyway... here's what the city looks like now after 23 years...

unledexy.jpg

yes, as you can plainly see (unless you're blind, sorry), the city is much larger.

it is nearing the 10,000 people mark. i'll show you a couple of pictures of the new.

unledsqt.jpg

unledzqh.jpg

unledbzf.jpg

unledizk.jpg

unledwr.jpg

How'd you like that?

I think it's pretty good for a first try :D

unledgm.jpg

another picture.

unledmrn.jpg

...and another.

unledwh.jpg

...and another.

unledagx.jpg

...God i have a lot of time on my hands.

unledhbu.jpg

now that you're sort of up-to-date on the city, let's get shtarted!

the mayor's gone exploring, so the city is running by itself. the citizens

decided to build a coal mine, since coal was discovered very nearby.

unledmrz.jpg

however, trouble struck! the land was too hard to dig in that area!

this was most likely because it was winter, so they'd have to wait till

summer, when the ground is the most moist.

----:3 :3 :3----

Alright. eager to build the coal mine, construction immediately began.

After just 2 weeks, the mine was finished.

unledfb.jpg

Just two days after completion, the mayor arrived. At first, the citizens

Thought the mayor was proud of them. they were wrong.

unledjix.jpg

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

hey guys, it's now march 29th and construction has begun!

fisrt, they demolished the stores and cleared the area.

unledtjl.jpg

then, bulldozers, cranes, and other construction equipment start building the hall.

unledtvq.jpg

and finally, after 2 months of nonstop construction, the new city hall is complete!

unledtnc.jpg

unledkgv.jpg

oh hey, look! it's a Wendys!

unledqp.jpg

And now, with the location, of the church decided, construction on the church has begun!

unledosy.jpg

the finished product:

unledvit.jpg

It's awesome, isn't it :] ? alright, uh, i'm going to work on San Ontario and will start posting again

when i will. It kind of stinks that my CJ wasn't the hit i expected it to be, but, whatever.

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

Yes, i know. it's my longest title yet.

But who cares? :whatevs:

okay. so, here's the town at just over 5,000 people:

unledpzc.jpg

this is the new and extended downtown:

unled1dex.jpg

This little open area is a park-to-be. Construction will start soon:

unled2mk.jpg

this is one of the newest neighborhoods to be built:

unled3z.jpg

Construction on the park has begun, and first are the dirt paths!

unledyxz.jpg

Next, the trees are planted.

unledek.jpg

Finally, the playground and gazebo are built!

unledoc.jpg

The first park is done after about 2 months of construction.

It's now winter time, and everyone is staying inside. next year,

a town hall will be constructed. this will be one of the two

projects planned for next year.

To be continued next year!

Jeffmaster223

Les' do this!

Alright! I'm gonna crack my knuckles and get this city running!

First off, a new neighborhood! many people want to settle on this new planet,

so demand for housing is VERY high. Here's the new layout:

unledkar.jpg

By the way, all farms demolished get money to build another farm. :]

Traffic is on the rise, and farms are getting farther and farther away from the

processing plants. to fix this, a railroad will be built from here:

unledfay.jpg

to here:

unledxa.jpg

After 2 weeks of construction, Here is the new track system:

unledsq.jpg

Farms are planned to be built outside of the track system, so that people will be

able to move in, and future people will be able to move in as well.

unledva.jpg

With the population reaching 2000, the Mayor deserves a Mayor's house, right?

So a new one was built on the shore of the river. this cost the city nearly

2 million dollars. though it was a handful, the citizens believed it was worth it.

unledool.jpg

After the mayor's house is built, who knows what will happen?

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

after electing a mayor, Becoming a true city isn't very far away.

Before it can become a city, though, it must be more planed. Small dirt roads

were built in the town center.

unledjgl.jpg

These roads will be, in 14 billion years,the oldest roads ever paved.

still growing, the mayor, Izaak Apis (yes, that is me :)) decided to start creating a

Commercial district, along with a couple of houses. Here is the layout:

unledql.jpg

these kinds of houses, however, required electricity. the mayor and some

technicians created the first power source: Wind mills! Tons of wind mills

were built along the river banks. This was where most of the wind gusts were.

unledcbp.jpg

More dirt roads were built in the center of town.

unledfpc.jpg

The town was small enough to take polls on what to do next, so the whole town decided to

build a new neighborhood. this would destroy part of a farm, but the city gave the man who

owned the farm, Mr. Michael, 3000 dollars to build a new farm or a new house. Here's the new neighborhood:

unledwc.jpg

Commercial demand was on the rise, and more passenger ships were scheduled to arrive. To

Settle this commercial problem, more commercial areas were built.

unledhyj.jpg

There was alot of traffic for the dirt roads, so a street, though small,

was built in the busy area.

unledtgv.jpg

Another area was zoned. This area was industry. These facilities

Process and store the food grown by the farmers.

unledqu.jpg

Now that the town has more then 1000 people, homes are needed! More Neighborhoods, More houses,

More shops and More people! All in the Next chapter!

To Be Continued!

Jeffmaster223

64 YEARS LATER...

the first passenger spaceship arrived 4 days before than the other 6.

unledwnd.jpg

These passengers discovered that something was very weird. Not the new house,

unledkv.jpg

but the fact that one of the two boys who survived the crash was 15 and the other was 37.

The residents were quite shocked. putting that aside, the passengers decided to create a city.

They all decided to settle right by the house. the first 502 people started to build the town immediately.

unledko.jpg

The thing was, though, the first passengers forgot to bring seeds for crops. so, they had to wait for 3

days before they could eat any kind of crop.

--3 days later--

The other space ships arrive, but they land on the opposite side of the river, and the river is very, very

wide (about the width of Louisiana),so the residents didn't notice.

unledrbr.jpg

however, one of the first passengers, a scientist, called the other space ships and asked where they were.

the space ships, in short, turned around and landed where the other people were.

unledtfn.jpg

With all of the necessary things the people needed at hand, the city was ready to thrive.

Farms and ranches sprouted everywhere, and the town began to grow...

unledrh.jpg

...and grow...

unledcy.jpg

...and grow. they even decided to build a nice "greenhouse"

unledrq.jpg

well on it's way to becoming a real city, the citizens were quite thrilled.

but a city can't be a city when it doesn't have a mayor! so a mayor was elected by a coin toss.

There were 8 candidates. the final match was between the two "kids" who were in the crash 64 years ago.

with the lucky call of Heads, the 15 year-old won.

The town is finally a real city!

1: Beginning

A Spaceship the size of midtown Manhattan crashes on a plannet much larger than the sun.

This Spaceship, called the Starship Grand,was sent from Earth to explore an Earth-like

planet discovered in July 1st, 2012. This spaceship landed on July 4, 2076. Needless to say,

there was a large explosion.

unledkjc.jpg

Two boys walked out of the burning rubble. after two days of resting,Those two boys, both 14,

noticed there were no trees around for miles due to the explosion.

unledhx.jpg

The only trees around were pieces of drift wood floating in the nearby river and the little creek.

unledxo.jpg

The two teenagers, using their survival skills alone, built a small wooden cabin.

unledbno.jpg

Hoping to get some food not affected by the fire, the kids ran over to the crater, and they found a

miracle. The "Phone" that was used to call headquaters back on earth was still usable. They called

HQ immediately. The HQ decided to send several passenger ships to the planet. Knowing the wait for company

would take at least 64 years,to pass the time, the boys went exploring. They knew it would be dangerous, but

They needed more wood and food. using only wooden spears and their fists, the boys headed out into the unknown.

To be continued,64 years later!

Jeffmaster223

Hey guys, uh, i have done a few journals before and all of them sucked.

Really. I was very embarrassed about them, so i'm making a Much better one.

So i'm going to make a very large city, but i'm going to expand my region as

We go. right now the region only has two LARGE city tiles.

I don't care how long this will take me, i Will finish this CJ.

--SO LET'S GET STARTED!--
