Kim Sunwoo: Thanks a lot!

tankman: Thanks! I tried exactly to create a mid-density industrial/ghetto neighborhood because in my last cities the transition looked too abrupt.

TekindusT: Thanks!

Kisa Atsuko: Thank you! Diagonal stations are really cool, too bad they are somewhat hard to find :(

cromabianca: Thanks! It's SAM7 - Hableurg Asphalt street.

tankmank: Thank you!

Benedict: Thanks! It's nice to be back. I think it looks fine because this city wasn't meant to be a city. I was re-lotting the station, and as a test placed the relot in this tile. Then everything was build around the station.

coolwiththecool2: Thank you!

freemuchies: Thanks!

dabadon5: Thanks!

JP Schriefer: Thank you! I'll try.

Huston: Thanks! Especially thank you for telling Mr Saturn which building it was!

Redfield - Suburban Rails

A lot of commuters use Redfield Train System (RTS) as their transportation. A big city, Redfield tries to avoid jams on its highways by providing quality rail transportation for its inhabitants. This update will show some of RTS stations and their surroundings.


Tallinn Park Station, located next to a park with the same name. There is a area of restaurants around it, tennis court and The Estonian Heritage museum. Around 20,000 immigrants from Estonia in the 19th century, leaving the city with a sizable community. The station is the first of the Red branch after the terminal.


Barlow Station. Located close to a historical center which houses some stores and pubs, Barlow Station was the first station to be built in the Green Branch. Taken down by a fire in 1993, it was replaced by a more simpler, modern building.


A quieter station, Beaumont Street station is the second station of the Red Branch. It is surrounded mainly by middle class houses, and many dwellers use it to go to work downtown.

Now, to finish the update, a big mosaic:


Well, I hope you've liked Redfield. There will be a few more entries of this city, and it is not finished yet. So, any advice is welcome!



My first entry in a long time (August 2013). This one features two teasers of Redfield, a regionally important metropolis based on North American ones.


The Eastern portion of downtown and the Toronto Terminal, the largest and main station of Redfield-Kent Metro.


A few suburbs, a slum/industrial area and part of the downtown, depicting one of the city's many contrasts.

Indeed, it is a very short update. Hope you've enjoyed.


Northern Hope

Located closer to Lansay City Downtown, Northern Hope is composed by wealthier suburbs and a golf club. Enjoy! Part 1 here. Replies at the bottom.

It's the fourth most populated city in Rockward District, with approximately 20,000 inhabitants. It has a small port, and it's a very green, pleasant city.








To finish, a mosaic with a full view of the city:


I WILL reply soon, and Thanks to everybody who comment. I'd really appreciate if you rate/comment the journal. :)

Victoria - Part 1

Victoria - Part 1

Victoria is an american-styled city that I'm working on currently. A lot of progress still has to be done, but I'd like to share some with you:



Now the downtown (CBD) of the city:


A LOT of things has to be done. For example:

- Remove the excess of repeated buildings

- Add more skyscrapers

- Finish downtown zoning (90% done)

- Finish suburb construction

What has been already done:

- Part of the suburb

- Part of the downtown

- Transportation systems (rail/road)

- The airport (I'll show in another update).
