  1. Crangston main station

  2. A new introduction

    Thanks everyone for the comments!
  3. St Cuthbert, the second city

    St. Cuthbert is the second city of Veronsly, located on a bay in the south of the island. Okay, maybe labels like "second city" are a little demeaning, but don't consider it a bad thing. What St. Cuthbert has going for it is the laid-back feeling of a cultural city and university town. Except without the university, but that's not the point. Albanel, the capital, (which you will see soon), is much more fast-paced and focused on financial and government stuff... and who really wants to do that on a hot summer day? Of course, the island of Veronsly does not get very many hot summer days - if any at all. Locals jokingly say that the gloom of nearby Britian is the reason for the island's bad weather. But anyways... Below you will see the historic center of the city, with the tall spire of the St. Cuthbert cathedral towering above the main square. The cathedral is located on the spot of the first Christian church on the island, constructed by a celtic monk named Cuthbert who is the island's patron saint. His tomb is located in the city of Bequelan, which is considered the center of Christianity on the island with its large cathedral. The large white building on the square is the city hall of St. Cuthbert. The main square is lined with old structures from different time periods... from medieval to renaissance and Georgian. Located here is Liberation Square, with the mausoleum of Kaiden Ruthfellow, who was the first leader of the country after independence from Britian. He was born and grew up in St. Cuthbert. In front of the mausoleum is the National History museum. There's also a train station nearby that connects the city with its western suburbs and the capital city of Albanel. Below is another museum, the Naval History museum, dedicated to the naval history of the island. The main train station of the city is located here, which unlike the other train station, provides express trains directly to the capital city and Bequelan. Farther east from the train station is the suburb of Sterenbury, which is pretty much just up the hill from the main train station. Here you will find the local university, (okay, there actually IS one) located in the brick building with the spire on the corner. There's also the historic church of St. Alban.... ....aaaand a video rental place, because apparently they haven't gone entirely out of business just yet. Around the area you'll also find victorian terraces, a product of the island's British rule. Thanks for reading!!
  4. live the night ! (GIF's !)

    Whoa.... shiny GIFs. Me gusta!
  5. Have you seen a racist comment on YouTube that had thumbs up?

    Yeah... I get the feeling if intelligent life out in the universe were to get their first impression of humanity through YouTube comments, they would have an excuse to wipe out our species. Also reality TV.
  6. EuroCity12

    Very beautiful!
  7. Plaza 18 de Marzo and Parliament

    Very beautiful city... definitely reminds me of Spain. Fui a Madrid en 2007, y me encantó. Quiero viajar a España otra vez.
  8. A new introduction

    This is the new introduction, because I'm restarting this CJ. A new update of the new St. Cuthbert coming soon. Spoiler alert: It is no longer the capital city. Republic of Veronsly Veron: Pobblaght Vyron French: Republique Véron Capital: Albanel Language(s): English, French, Veron/Gaelic Denonym: Veron Religion(s): Christianity (Protestant, Catholic), Islam, No Religion/Irreligious, Other Government: Parliamentary Republic Independence: from England, 1902 Human Development Index: Very High National Anthem: "Long Live Peace for Veronsly" Brief History which may be historically inaccurate, but this is a parallel universe from ours so it doesn't really matter The island had been populated by Celtic tribes who called the island "Vyron" to which the meaning isn't entirely known. However, the Romans colonized the island around 200 AD, calling it "Viridon," from the latin word "Viridis" meaning the color green. During the Middle Ages, the island consisted of two seperate city states - Albanel and St. Cuthbert. The two cities united in the 14th century to form the principality of Veronsly. For many years Veronsly had been colonized by England and then later gained independence through a turbulent revolt. Because of the years of colonization, the main language of the island is English. However, most official government documents and ceremonial stuff is in Veron, which is a Gaelic language. (Or, should I say, pseudo-Gaelic because I'm not really an expert on languages and know little about actual Gaelic languages) The island was also invaded by Nazi Germany during World War II, although the Nazis later realized that the island was of no use to them so they ignored it for the most part. Immediately after World War II, Veronsly was among the poorest countries in Western Europe. Several decades of economic growth, successful social programs and various other achievements, Veronsly is now among the most desirable small nations in Western Europe... although there has been a few issues due to the ongoing international economic crisis. And, here's a little map of the island. Some of the cities are pseudo-gaelic Veron names, some English, and others French-sounding. The two big cities, Albanel and St. Cuthbert, have a very noticeable Dutch influence as far as architecture goes. And also you'll notice some of the waterfront areas are slightly Scandinavian. And a teaser of St. Cuthbert....
  9. The commuter train through Angostura

    The commuter train terminus station in Santa Leon is located near the soccer(football) stadium and CBD. This is the place where you can get onto a train to easily travel through the valley without dealing with traffic problems. In between Santa Leon and Angostura is a narrow pass between the mountains which contains a highway- unfortunately, this highway is pretty much the only way to get from Angostura to Santa Leon, meaning a lot of people use it. For that reason, the commuter railroad was built. Thankfully, a new road with tunnels going through the mountains has already been approved for construction as well. The region around Santa Leon in the north island is mostly a dry subtropical climate. The valley west of Angostura is known for producing a lot of wine among other things. This is the station in Angostura. The city of Angostura is known primarily for its university, the largest in the country. It is also among the largest cities in Guaracay. The city has grown largely due to its status as a suburb of Santa Leon, with office buildings that have risen along the city's main avenue connected to the highway. The area also has a lot of high-tech and manufacturing industries. The city also has its own little old town area, with a cathedral too. The most iconic building is the original university structure. Behind it are several large buildings that consist of classrooms and student housing. The commuter train goes farther even than Angostura, while eventually ending in the valley west of the city. Due to the limits in space in the area, much of the city sprawl has had to squeeze its way through the valleys of the mountains and towards the west, where the land is less rugged. Thanks for reading!
  10. Western suburbs of Santa Leon & airport

    Replies corydreinhardt: Thanks! Traffic was really terrible, until the freeway was built through the center of the city, which helped improve congestion. I would think it's still bad though, simply due to the fact that the city is mostly quite dense. The "downtown" is pretty ambiguous, but I would say the epicenter of the city is the commercial district directly south of the colonial quarter, since it is pretty much the heart of the city. Evillions, dubaidude303, Simarco: Thanks! MamaLuigi945: ¡Muchas gracias! Ihaveaneedforspeed: I don't think I'll make a CJ of it, but you can check out my new tumblr for pics! Fox: Indeed, I can imagine how nice it would be to get back from a long day's work and just head out to the beach to relax for the rest of the day. That is, if you can manage to escape near-death from the crazy drivers going across the busy avenue. The western part of Santa León consists of the modern industrial area of Santa Clara and coastal suburb of Miraflores. Santa Clara is a suburb of the western part of Santa León that is particularly known for its manufacturing and high-tech industry. This area is considered the "Silicon Valley of the Caribbean" due to the many high-tech industries that are situated here, some of which manufacture consumer electronics and other things. These consumer electronics are usually very cheap knock-offs of foreign cell-phones and tablets and that kind of thing. Some companies, like UTC, have a few manufacturing plants in the surrounding area. (For those who don't know, UTC is an electronics company from my other CJ city, San Lorenzo) Santa Clara is located in close proximity with the international airport of Santa León. The airport has expanded over time from a small landing strip to a moderately sized single-runway airport. It serves as a hub for Guarair, the national airline that has international flights to and from North and South America. (Currently, the only other international flights outside of the Americas are to Madrid and Paris) The suburbs of the city have sprawled around the airport, which takes up a good portion of space in the only suitable flat land along the coastal city area. Near the airport and Santa Clara is another suburb called Miraflores. (Not to be confused with the upscale coastal neighborhood in Lima, Peru) The area is known for the Medical school and university located close to the airport. The area is seeing quite a bit of development and construction, particularly along the coastline as land value increases dramatically. Developers are having a heyday in this area, but some people complain that the coastline may erode too much if many of the construction plans are put into place. As you will see, there's still a lot of unfinished work. Here's some more pics that I have that I don't know what to do with. Also, as embarrassing as it is to admit, I had no idea I could submit my own feature on the home page, after all this time... So here's the pic I used! I didn't show very many pics of the airport, due to the fact I'm not that confident in my abilities in airport-building. But whatever, here it is! Also, Happy Memorial day (If you're from the United States)

  13. The End; A New Revolution

    *Sniff* Goodbye, beautiful CJ. Although on the bright side, I always find it fun to completely destroy a city I've built. (Of course, without saving it!)
