This is a more varied showcase of the city of Lakefield. There's some areas that still lack detailing, but for the most part, the city is final. I also updated the Imgur album.

Starting off with an aerial view:

Foreword: 'Lakefield' is the name of the city I built on the Natural Disasters' Floodland Scenario. I posted an Imgur album about my take on the scenario's challenge, wich also shows how rough the city looked like then, hence why I started embellishing it after beating said challenge. There's also some previous progress I posted back on the 'Show us what you're working on' thread on the Cities:Skylines subforum (1 and 2)

With that said, here's some more progress. Starting with a general view:

You may have noticed that there's a new island on the middle of the lake. That's the reclaimed first settlement, renamed 'Proyect Floodland':

Here's the newly populated Proyect Insula, with part of the ruins uncovered (preserved?):

Now, there was an issue with Proyect Floodland, and it was the lack of cargo connections with the mainland. There's no valid shipping routes in this map, and sadly there's no freight equivalent of Mass Transit's ferry system, so I went for an underground rail system disguised as a 'wharf port', wich are vanilla cargo train stations with the rails covered up in one way or another. There are 4 of these stations; one at the south of the map shown here:

And finally, at the map's north, I created a small water stream wich meanders around the neighborhood:
