After a long day of gaming, I decided to post more of Harrisburg. I have been having trouble with my computer and it has been crashing all day, so I will address that issue propmtly.
However, now is the time to post...
Mayor John Harris has come to a realization that running a city and collecting it's garbage was too much for one man. So, he up and named his son Harry Harris the official mayor while he stays on the sidelines and shouts out plays and picks up cans.
So far, Harry has taken the city square and empty buildings and created the beginings of city...
After a hard day of laying track, building roads, and fending off rogue computer crashes, Harry came to a point when he thought he should unpause and fast forward...
Wow! Harry was amazed at how fast 40,000 people could move into his city!
Harry has told me to give you a few glimpses at Harrisburg's industry and utilities...
An artifical tree used to capture stray carbon-
And microwave power (WARNING: Do not use 50,000 megawatt power sources to cook hot pockets!)-
The Harris' family were proud of their bustling city. By now Harrisburg had nearly 75,000 inhabitants, with plenty of water and power. It also boasted a strong police force, full fire coverage and a citywide school system with 2 libraries, 2 elementary schools, 2 high schools, a museum and a university.
The city lacked just one thing- a beach!
City council voted unanamously that Harrisburg needed a river and some beaches- not to mention riverfront property to raise housing values!
The city looking from the east...
So here we are- 75,000 sims, state of the art utilities, citywide healthcare and education, 5 arenas, TV and radio stations and a beach! Can't get much better than that- or can it?
According to my financial advisor "There are rewards to being neighborly!". He may have a point! I think I need to add more trees- but that will be next time, along with Harrisburgs neighboring towns!
