Time for the second entry of the Aurora CJ focused on downtown. I do not know yet how long this series will be, but you can expect at least two more episodes. But the most important thing though is that you seem to like 'em!
Ln X Very cool pictures. With each month CS grows with new assets and mods being developed.
Yep that's true! My library has now more than 600! I'm also preparing a collection with them all, it will be released when complete!
Mr Saturn64 That's a lot of Philly buildings. I need to start playing this game.
Never been there in person but looks as a very cool city! And yes, four Philly buildings are in downtown, you'll se 'em in details in the next episode!
Titanicbuff Beautiful- I ven notice your buses work- mine seem to have caused a glitch where it wasn't allowing me to play- at any rate- well done. Amazing shots.
Thanks! Strange, I haven't problems of any sort with buses.
Mymyjp such a nice entry. I am amazed on how much the new expansion has elevated the quality of this game. Job well done!
Thanks a lot, I agree but have to admit some details could be even better, there are some inconsistencies you can notice in these street level shots.
Mr_Maison I'm kicking myself for not following this CJ earlier. How did I miss this?....these are some of the most inspiring screenshots I've seen for this game. Beautiful Work!
WALKING IN DOWNTOWN #2: TRAVELODGE HOTEL - JOLIET SQUARE
Well, after the previous walk and a night of sleep this is the view from the Travelodge Hotel (featured in the Red Light District entry) North Tower: inviting, isn't it?
After a filling breakfast in one of the numerous Oldshore district cafes it's time to take another walk to downtown!
The city administration has placed many information boards which helps tourists and residents not to get lost, with public transport routes, nearby points of interest, parkings and much more.
And just around the right corner you realize tha the primary destination is not far at all!
After less than a hundred meters... here you are!
Looking left you can see something familiar... it is worth to take a closer look!
It's the famous the famous Aurora sign that can be seen in many postcards!
Time to cross the street and proceed to downtown!
The scrapers prominence here is quite sickening!
As if to underline it, here there's even an outdoor cafe!
It really is very busy!
Just a block west there is another very popular square: the Casey Plaza!
Here are the statues of a famous Spanish sculptor...
Time for a nose-up again!
It's damn hot today! And we're still early in the morning!
The scrapers density here is quite impressive...
Holding the nose up often it's easy to get lost... this road does not seem very popular with tourists...
Luckily there's another infromation board few meters ahead!
Well, Joliet Square is just past this pedestrian way!
Here we are, the destination of our morning walk!
Oh yeah the Aurora Skydome! Want to get up there!
Here is also the renowned Victory Column!
Gosh! The queue for the Skydome tickets is very long! Why I did miss to book online?
Got the ticket! Time to take the superfast elevator to the top!
What an amazing sight!
If you suffer dizziness do not do this!
It's worth the price! Almost forgot there's also the beatiful Opera House right here!
Let's move to the eastern part of the square, there's much more to see!
This is the hockey stadium Emile Arena, he home of Aurora Thunders!
In front of it there is a really strange sculpture that look like a lightning rod. Maybe it wants to resemble a thunder! There's also another wonderful monumental column. This one is dedicated to the XIX century caledonian revolution.
A metro station, it's time to take advantage of it!
Still have to visit all the southeastern part of downtown, it will take some time!
Keep followin' and you'll be surprised!
