Update 3

The École centrale of Lynnfield (ECL) is a research university in Lynnfield, Lynnshire. Founded in 1857 by François Barthélemy Arlès-Dufour in response to the increasing industrialization of the Commonwealth of Vulcania, it is one of the oldest graduate schools in the Commonwealth. The university is part of the Grandes Écoles, a prestigious group of vulcanian institutions dedicated to engineering, scientific research, and business education. The current 45-acre (18 ha) campus opened in 1867 and is located in the city of Lynnfield.

The École centrale of Lynnfield is traditionally known for its research and education in applied science and engineering. It excels in the research fields of acoustics, biosciences and nanotechnology, and is continuously ranked in the top five Grandes Écoles for the quality of its engineering graduate programs. The school is well-reputed for educating and training highly skilled engineers through many specialized graduate programs with a strong emphasis on laboratory instruction. Students graduate with a degree known as the engineering diploma, which is an academic title protected by the vulcanian government and equivalent to a Master of Science, or with a Ph.D. upon completion of their doctoral studies.

The university is one of the founding members of the Centrale Graduate School network.

The park in the center of the campus, surrounded by a few dormitorys, ideal to get up five minutes before the start of lecture, just making a jump by the cafeteria to take breakfast

Westfield is great, it's the best, the most beautiful, bla bla bla... But.. how good does it feel to be able to have fun from time to time without taking into account all the realism, aesthetics and any other aspect that makes me take months to build just a block.

Here is Arrandale, an entirely vanilla city. I am quite satisfied with the result *:D

Thanks :thumb:

Well, there's a while I haven't posted some pics. In fact I was building a new suburbs and rebuilding Manhattan (where I was working on 3 tiles at the same time...) :party: The begin of the new school years did not help :cry:

This update will be about a Staten Island, updates about Manhattan will come next. Enjoy :P

Thanks ! :D

@MamaLuigi945: The sunken higways are avaible on simmpeg.com The lots are eye candy (not functional), but they can be made functional (you can drag a subway line under it for example)

I made small modifications about the repetitions, it should be a bit better now.

Sorry for the bugs on some pictures, SC4 seems to don't appreciate my new graphics card :?:

Enjoy :party:

...to make way for industries and harbor facilities

It is not advisable to swim in this canal...

img0014lw.jpg

... which, once emptied to clean up any waste that collect at the bottom gave way to car racing. No, it's not a Hollywood movie full of special effects, it is reality. The police who however very active in this sector, can't prevent these illegal and dangerous races.

This pollution hurts my eyes and lungs, I'll have to leave, before I suffocate...

Thanks ! :)

I return to Downtown Manhattan, since the last time I've brought a lot of changes, although urbanization has progressed well, there are still some areas where nothing wants to build. Soon you will be entitled to WTC (holidays who begins June 13 are helping) :party:
