Maroon Bay Cow County !

Up to now all CJ all feature a lot of agriculture. Livestock is another area of country life I´d like to cover. SPAM up to now produced only one animal farm so I decided to create my own animal scape, using what ever available plopable bat´s. Just about half the county south east of highway 53 is dedicated to this way of life. Maroon Bay got to main large towns Maroon Bay City and Prospect City. Maroon Bay City is the administrative capital. Prospect is a more work and education related city. Various towns are squaterd over the rest of the county wich will be presented in this CJ !

We start with Prospect City. Founded in the fifties, it´s a relative new town with highschool and  a industrial area away in the far corner !

Hartford Valley International Airport !

RVl4cBC.jpg

Finaly I can present to you a real live airport ! Hartford Mayon Airport as initialy know was inaugerated in early 30th´s of the last century ! A North-South runway was created at the west of Hartford Valley town, with a small later resized terminal. Air cargo aswell was started due north !

YhP4oxJ.jpg

The 1950´s so a rapid rise of air travel, the terminal wasn´t big enough to handle the new traffic so a plan was made to create a complete new terminal south east of the present and addition  of another longer runway to handle those big jets !

Initial plan consicted of a central core and some wings spreading away from it !

l5TLN73.jpg

Later the Terminal D wing was extended to it´s present size in the 70´s !

mDwQMlh.jpg

Gate shortage in the 80´s and 90`s resulted in a extension of the  Terminal C and D wings ! With this development aswell a mini subway was created so pasenger could have a better transfer transport !

Some pictures of the airport in detail !

Hartford harbour !

Mayon province CJ makes a little reboot this summer with the second largest city in Mayon Province, Hartford. Hartford from establishment was and is a important industrial gateway into the eastern part of Mayon province. Providence city maybe compared in industrial sence as a venue but the layout beside the Maroon river makes it a real port city. We start with the port area !

Hartford has three large harbours. Logical oldest harbour closest to the city !

Fìrst harbour is split into a modernized container part and a bulk goods dock !

Countryside Peninsula Galore !

Last time I mentioned the railferry to the Cape Hartford area. In this CJ we will explore the countryside of Cape Hartford and Fort Grayon Islea and Ocean. Cape Hartford peninsula countryside is still in a early stage; Fort Grayon Islea and Ocean area is much wider developed. First settlers to Mayon Province went ashore on these peninsula´s wich were relativy safe. Some area´s of Fort Grayon Islea and Ocean and the town development of Fort Grayon Ocean will be revealed in a later CJ.

Let´s start with the Cape Hartford area !

Hope you enjoyed this CJ and see you back in the next one !

Bridges, Roads, Tunnels !

Work on Mayon Province lines of communication´s continue´s. Rather boring, don´t mind if you don´t like RHW !

RHW seems to be quit simple if you have a lot of room. Some time the sollution is easy, often quit difficult. First we have a look at some bridges in Thareau Ville. The´r connecting Thareau with Providence City and Fort Grayon.

THI7krF.jpg

Ui2C1Ly.jpg

Local road connection need to be nice and tight !

V6tKbA2.jpg

Another look at the Thareau Ville Nouvelle traffic interchange west of town further developed !

tUlxsMo.jpg

Evans Ville and Sampson Ville tunnel access proofed to be quit a challenge !

vrxol5M.jpg

cIbl7mi.jpg

Sounds too boring all those highway´s ! Earlier comment mentioned this would become a big metropolis so it will probably be, setting up a town layout is in this way properly planned is one of several one´s of doing ! Traffic isn´t around so it feels somewhat bar cold. RHW free world would somewhat be more relaxing, first putting in one mayor highway would be more natural, for future planning space could allways be reserved; unfortunaly RHW takes up more space than one would like it to be. So more or less the western half of Mayon Province RHW is about finished ! Rural mayon will be maintained in certain area´s of mayon province, hilly terrain obviously won´t allow much development; some of the coastal area´s and the east part will be more rural !

Mayon Province 2.0

Mayon Province 2.0

What lays behind those borders of the original province was largely a question. Obviously Maxisland ! No that´s a world imagined. Allthought there some custom theming around where mainly here in some kind of North American setting wich gives some room for mediteranean or marine like posibilities. If posible some old settlement or landmarks will be placed and will some theming be continued; for the rest will be quit the average, allthought there are still a lot of custom sets, with wich I would like to give the other city´s a more distinct look of their own ! Gradually all will be build up, so everynow and then there will be updates !

Afther giving the province a distinct shape correction, yesterday I started giving the left part of the province some greenery !

Mayon Province Agraculture

Firstly there was Maxis farming !

Grain elevators and the usual maxis stuff.

rqu85K2.jpg

Second stage desire to have some none maxis mods like SPAM or independent. Here we have a large hop farm area.

All a litttle bit experimental, Maxis farms are when developing only available on demand, for a short time, other mods are queutly very time consuming they´ll need to be added one square a time and have some difficulty with height differences.

 

wKBggCt.jpg

Inland canal system added to take goods to and from the harbour !

So long for the inland area.

Coastal area was designed like two holiday resorts with inbetween a large rural area with some sub tropical theme.

First we have a large sugar plantation along the coast, providing some jobs. People will have to move out to get higher education, mostly decent hand or mechenical labour offered.

Last we have a little Italian town surrounded by Vineyards and Olive plantation´s
