Like with the previous entry you can see all the below images (and more) in this imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/eZtHh
So today saw a lot of expansion and improvements to the city. It grew by about 3 tiles and is now covering 8 tiles in total (not fully developed yet)
The city now has an elevated highway which helped relieve the busy roads in that area of the city quite a bit.
This area provides decent cover from rain.
The new waterfront district features lush homes and high quality of life.
City progress so far.I love the free hand road tool. It is really space inefficient but it looks soo good.
Public transport sees a lot of usage here. It features about 10 buss lines and 4 metro lines, around 5.000 daily commuters in total so far. Not bad for a city of roughly 30.000 citizens I think.
The city needed lots of workers, and commercial. Something I was unable to fulfill properly using only the free hand road tool and zoning, so a more grid based city popped up on the other side of the highway.
Even though parts of the city is grid based it still features lots of open spaces and green areas for the citizens to come, breathe and relax for a while.
This gate symbols the gateway between the new and the old city. Also it helps break the repetitive grid pattern that I had to resolve to.
To commemorate the industry which made the city into what it is today the city decided to erect this monument.
And this is how the industrial district has developed so far. Traffic is a mess. Even with two highway connections and a cargo train terminal, every time the traffic is somewhat under control the district expands with new and better businesses which in return drives the traffic up again.
I accidentally San Francisco'ed a highway intersection
Oh look, a new frontier. We are going to conquer the other side of the river.
This new district is made up of several circle roads connected together with paths and parks. This is the first step across the river the city has made so far, but this area of the city will probably see heavy expansion in the future.
To help reduce the commute and traffic on the roads a rail line was established. Right now it connects the new settlement across the river with the old town and the industrial area. But uhm. What's that mountain in the background?
It looks kinda odd.
Uh, a volcano. Hopefully dormant.
And the view from up here is kinda nice.
Birds eye view of the entire city as I left it before I realized it was in the middle of the night and I had to get up to work in a few hours.
