Hi Guys.

This is my first city journal entry - the Habour city of Port Lantea, and first city of the Eternal Sounds region, Neu Westfalen --- Population: 233,359.

SPECIAL THANKS TO RepublicMaster for helping me correct my images (and creating the background story for my ongoing City Journal).

I put alot of work into the CBD and Port area in particular so we'll start here.

Port Lantea is the Eternal Sound's main Financial Hub and is home to numerous international corporations, many of whom have their global HQs here.

Needless to say it is also the largest commercial port in the region, with large container, LNG, Oil and Cruise-liner facilities as well as a Luxury Marina.

The port is also home to the nation's largest naval base (at right), but I'll cover that in an upcoming post.

The NWS Westphalia - a decommissioned Battleship that serves as a tourist attraction for citizens and tourists alike. It is kept in servicable condition in the unlikely chance it should ever be needed.

The Westphalia is a relic launched in 1941 and served in WWII against Imperial Japan in the Pacific, it was upgraded twice before being removed from service in 1985.

The port can accommodate up to 4 cruise liners at a time - an important facility for the entire region's tourism industry.

The Spinnaker Tower is the perfect centerpiece for a Marina.

The main highway (sunken) runs straight through the city and right along the CBD to provide efficient, low-congestion transportation.

The main Stadium and Convention Centre are located in the CBD, right next to the main HSR terminal & main Highway for easy, efficient access.
