Entries in this City Journal



Here is our first developing city!


 it will be the future epicenter of the whole region!


here you can see the first bit of the citys layout and see that there is alot of farm land around the city.

through the center-left section of the photo you can see the main road rightfully called "Main" St.!


Here you can see the mayors house, City highschool, court house, and raido station all along main street.

The mayors house sits on the corner of main and 72nd.

The city is divided east/west by Main st. and north/south by 72nd.


Here you can see the small comercial area of the city. plus the citys new McDonalds!


After the mcdonalds was built our small comunity started to gain ALOT of weight so we decided it a good idea to build a park! and what better location than next to the mcdonalds to help people burn the calories they consume there ;)

After people started to see how great mcdonalds was doingthey decided it fit to build a new farmers market and sonics on the other side of town...


Here is a section of our industrial area that houses our power and waste buildings...


Shortly after these were built they built the fast food places and they produced alot more waste than the city was prepaired for so we had to expand our waste capacity.


The city has slowly grown out and now look at it!


with all these new residents we had to expand Main St.


as we got farther into town new places saw it fit to build on this brand new avenue!

our first hotel!!

and along with that the city found it fit to build a simple 2 story parking garage for hotel guests and Main st. visitors!


a home depot and walmart just across from the industrial area of the town on Main St.


you can also see that the expansion of Main St. turns into one way roads by this part of town. this was a decision of walmart and homedepot to design it like that.

Soon we are offered a Mall!


well the promise of a mall that is. developers said they cant secure financing until the city reaches a bigger steady population. so for now the plot sits empty on highway 72 in the east part of town

With the mall in limbo a wealthy investor decided he'd open a casino and try to steal the thunder of a new mall.


Located in the south west part of town on Highway 168 the casino has made quite a name for itself!

Now seeing all this fuss from the residents about apparently not having enough entertainment the city bought up a mildly large plot of land in the north west section of town and decided to build something...


a new fair ground and university! and of course to top it off a small mayors statue ;)

well with these new people all excited about new buildings we decided to upgrade a few things starting with the medical system.


Located on 72nd and "L" streets its on the east side of town directly smack dab in the center of the residents! 

Next on the list was fire protection...

we added 2 more stations in the city area and this...


our first fire air strip!

And thus ends the first update from the city of central! check back soon for the 2nd update!


Here is a quick overview of what i have terraformed so far. it has taken me 4 hours to do this so far and i will hopefully tonight start working on the "central" city.

Here is the main focus of the whole country! the (future) city of Central!


Here you can see a small lake just south of where the main section of the city is planned. south of the lake will be a small unnamed suburb.

Here is the northern area of "Central" and our most major river conversion area:


Here is our first so far unnamed suburb area just west of Central:


When the main city is up and going we plan to settle this area next. its a very hilly area perfect for houses!

Here you can see our Mountian and volcanic region of the country...small yes but active like no other! here is also our only nammed peak so far! and rightfully names "corners peak" you can also see the south side of some future farm land area just past the river...


Another picture of the mostly farm land:


Here you can see our largest lake and inside it our largest island. just to the East of the lake there will be the city of Evansville


Here is the northern section of Evansville in the central/top area of the picture is another unnamed suburb and to the right of that is some farm land:


Here is another suburb area just north east of Evansville:


Here is a currently un finished area of the map which will house farms and eventually suburbs and vacation towns:


And that concludes my first "Official" post of this CJ!

more of the develping city of "Central" and the rest of the terriforming to come!



Personal Intro:

Hello, my name is Evan and this is not my first CJ...i have been playing SC4 since it came out in '03. I have lost many game disks and many computers with wonderful citys i never got to put up here but i recently got a new computer and a new copy of the game so this, started on my vacation this week (july30-aug4, 2010) will be my biggest and best CJ and just plain SC4 city(s) ever! all the problems i have had in the past  have hindered my play and activity on simtropolis but i plan on being on here regularly. Pleas eexcuse my grammer and spelling problems which i sometimes have its just how i type. Also be for warded this is HUGE! and may require me to split it into diffrent CJ's eventually but they will all be linked into this one one way or another.

Anyways here it goes!

Welcome to Gallaiosio! a huge Country on a self planned river area.

4 Major cities

i do most all my stuff in a "Grid" style layout just so everyone knows. but i do plan to break this habbit and make at least 5 or 6 places in here a "non-Grid" style layout.

I do use some cheats and here they are:

a 2X(?) industry multiplyer

a legalizing gambling mod that makes the income from legalizing it $50,000

a legalizing pot mod (income varies and on small towns is negitive)

of course NAM really isnt a cheat but ill list it anyways

a mod that makes landmarks provide jobs.

Anyways im off! and ill post some pictures here in a minute!
