Chapter 1-2

Estherville Industrial District Introduction

-Being a tour guide-

So hello, I'm your tour guide Thomas and I am going to show you Estherville's Industrial District, abbreviation commonly as EVID (pronounced as E-VID). So, let's start with the only power station here, EVID Power Station Od (EPSO). To your amazement, that power station can fill more than the District's needs. There is a contract to give power to the Suburbs.


Over there, you can see two water treatment plants and lots of water pumps. The reason why there are two because one of them (left side of the picture) is not functioning and its repairs failed, so they installed another treatment plant to cure its worst water pollution made in the District. Now the same mayor from the Suburbs, Hanson Ivi, is deciding whether the old treatment plant is going to be demolished for new industrial buildings.


You can also see the part of the industrial district with the place in action.

The district has also commercial and residencial buildings. First of all, the mayor would not like that idea, but because all from the Suburbs would not come here to have a job, he decided 'let's build residencial zones'.


Right now, the mayor is planning a big project to be build. Rumours spread both in the District and the Suburbs that it is ready to construct a skyscraper or two residencial towers but it is not confirmed.


Now, let's go to the coast of the District. There is a seaport where industrial companies' trucks travel there to drop off cargo to other places or even regions. Mayor is happy that they are earning from it.


Here's the western coast where there are houses and commercial buildings.


The Mayor's house


The District also has railway transport but for now, it is not yet used because there's no contract yet from main Estherville. There are two stations, one of them is for passengers and another is for cargo.



So, this is the end of the tour, thanks for coming but don't leave yet, why not experience being a industrial worker in the District for a day. Okay. Thanks again and good bye. :)

-Now being normal-

Ok, so let's discuss about what will happen next.

The city journal might be inactive for a while until next Saturday or so because I have not much time to do something for Esther. Also, I'll reply to your comment instead of posting replies on the next update.

If you want to know what modifications I used, feel free to message me but not reply in the comments.

So thanks for reading and make this city journal popular for me, kay. :ohyes:


So this is a short update from Estherville Suburbs. The next update (1-2) will be is released next Saturday (sorry for the delay >.< ) just now, check it out.

Chapter 1-1.5

Estherville Suburbs Short Update 1

The mayor has added another road which came from Estherville Industrial District. Too bad three houses were demolished, but at least the occupants got their cash back to find another house to live.



As for the construction at the west, a commercial building had built finished and is now willing to find people to work for them.



Another building is being planned to build near the jail.

See that building circled:


It had been cleared for a new commercial service to be build to serve better.



End of Short Update, sorry for no preview of the Estherville Industrial District. :blush:


Hello, Simtropolicans. First of all, thanks for coming here to read my City Journal. This is my first journal. I got this by inspiration by some of the greatest members.

So, if you want to clarify with my city journal, you may message me privately rather than posting in the comments. :ooh:

Chapter 1-1

Estherville Suburbs Introduction

Welcome to Esther, this is where our forefathers developed a plain region into a great region, now voted as 'Best Region Award' from United Regions. Right now we are focusing in Estherville Suburbs.

Estherville Suburbs is a name where it has multiple suburbs lying around. It is where our forefathers started here and built some houses for a living. Now, it is one of the smallest but best suburbs in Esther.

Everyone loves the Roundabout of Estherville Suburbs.


Every morning, the roundabout is always crowded with cars, buses and pedestrians, so as during every evening. The mayor, Hanson Ivi, makes it the landmark of the Suburbs.

Because there are suburbs, you will always see house by house. Here's an example.


The neighbourhood is quite satisifed with the way the Mayor plan it. That's why every neighbour loves him. :lol:

Some suburbs though upgraded to 'apartments'


Some of the neighbours are quite unhappy as it is not 'suburb-ish' to them. But the Mayor has no choice because the suburbs are now facing low space for building houses, so he has to upgrade some houses to apartments.

There is a highway but actually, it is right now empty because it is just built. On the west are water pumps, windmills, landfills and a city jail. There are still available space, so the Mayor asked a construction company to build some commercial and residencial buildings.


Now, Estherville Suburbs also faces another problem, shortage of jobs, which lead to unemployment to some of the citizens.


The mayor has put out a poll to everyone in the suburbs whether the commercial buildings (shops) should upgrade to commercial office. Most of them voted yes but the Mayor has to fish out some of Estherville Suburbs' savings to upgrade.

Here is the Mayor's house, it is where it facing to a tunnel entrance.


Here is a view of the roundabout and its avenues.


Confusing? Well, let me show you.


The southern avenue (the one with the tunnel) is also just built and still have no cars driving through.

So, that's about it in Estherbille Suburbs. On the next update, you will get to see Estherville Industrial District, where there are a lot of industries and smoke.
