  5. The City of Blois

    Well, it's certainly been a while since I've posted here, why not spice things up again? Much has changed since the last time I posted, I have completely moved over to Cities Skylines and remade all my previous cities in cities skylines using the original SC4 maps. Anywhoo, no more chatter, let's get to the pics! Outside Blois Stadium, the main stadium for Blois' bid for the Alliance's Summer Games, showing the flags of New Duveland's provinces and territories in alphabetical order starting (left to right) with the national flag, the territory of Avaiki, Laperouse, New Caledonia, New Herault, New Munster, New Ulster, the New Duveland Capital Territory, Norfolk, Tasman, and finally, the national flag of New Duveland once more. Apartment living in Blois is becoming incredibly more popular, as it offers a luxurious lifestyle close to the heart of the city, while maintaining peace and quiet. Even though Blois is home to just under 400,000 people, the city's metropolitan train network is one of the most efficient in the country. Here we see commuters at Pontlevoy Station heading towards downtown during the morning rush. Another view of Blois Stadium, showing the lush sub-tropical vegetation that is featured in every park around the city. With a seat from here, you would get an impressive view of the city skyline! The city from above, laid out on a warped grid system, driving through Blois can be a breeze. Wide tree-lined boulevards offer an efficient way to get through town, or you could take the Devereaux Freeway, which travels along the edge of the city. The city skyline from Île de Waipapa (Waipapa Island), one of the most popular getaway spots for exclusive holidays, and is also home to a large collection of early French colonial housing, as well as several large open-air events. It's just a shot ferry ride from the heart of the city. Nothing says national or provincial pride like having your flag everywhere! Just in case you forgot that you were in New Hérault, New Duveland.

  11. Introduction | Welcome!

    Welcome, welcome! The Atlantic Federation, officially the Union of the Veratlantean States is and has been a member of the Alliance of Independent Nations for almost 5 years now. It is a Union of 7 Republics over the 'subcontinental' Veratlantic Archipelago, in the Atlantic Ocean. There are a lot of complicated details about how exactly it works. I'll leave those to tell you on the go... But you can always check the infoboxes to the sides! How it started, and why now? Since I discovered Simtropolis and the community, I have been devoted to creating my own country for the world to see. I mustered up all ideas and decided to start a big what-if-land in the middle of the Atlantic. But it needed to make sense in the world, I didn't want it to be alone. I thought it was a good idea to join a CJ Union, the AIN. Early May 2010 and I got my Junior Membership and an avalanche of ideas for my Atlantic nation. In these 5 years, I learned from some of the finest CJers and decided to continuously improve my CJ, in all aspects I could. Now the result of all these years is the Union of Veratlantean States, a fancy name for the "Atlantic Federation v6.0", which btw has been my sole endeavor during all these years. No other CJ's, no side projects. What style will this be? The AF is very diverse. It is made of 7 Republics with very singular histories. After all, I think its the diversity of it that made me stick with it. There's Dutch, Americanized, French, British, Latin-Iberian-Mediterranean architecture, along with some communist blocks in the previously red republic of New Oren. There is a touch of Hong-Kong and Tokyo in some of its east coast largest metropolises, since they tend to be very dense. Here's what I mean in this WIP image: Besides that, the AF has a beautiful geography, with extensive climatic variety. I will do my best to portray its beautiful beaches, mountains and countryside. La Nouvelle Aquitaine, is truly beautiful, IMO. Can't wait to drive you through it! Hint hint, they speak French there! Ah the South... The Portuguese/Spanish speaking, ever-summer south... We have Overseas Territories too, like the gelid Greenlandic island of Svärda! Where we maintain not-at-all suspicious activities... How will the Updates be like? Most of the updates will fall in one of the below: 1: The Discover kind of update These will be narrated updates, in which we'll travel the federation using its means of transportation and following the stories of a character or more. 2: The BBC VBN kind of update These updates will be documentary-like, narrated updates, covering the most various topics about the AF. 3: The WIP kind of update These will be Work-In-Progress updates and teasers mostly so I can ask for your help to keep improving the CJ and also try suggestions left in the comments, if there are any. 4: The TV/Media kind of update These will be brought mainly from the Alliance itself and will feature newspaper articles to tell what's happening in the AF and its CJ neighborhood. Accidents, elections, music festivals, sports, international events, these fall here. 5: The Random Kind Whatever else comes to mind! How often? I will try to have them be regular, one a week, but certainly I will keep you informed about what's going on with it. I'm currently on a "gap semester" since my college schedule went out of sync as I will be moving across hemispheres this year. So basically it means lots of free time. Wiki Support Beware that I will do my best to provide extensive Wiki Support to the CJ, thanks to the AIN's amazing wiki engine. So every city, state, and region you visit and most things mentioned about the Federation will have its own Wiki article, to further enhance the depth of the CJ and explain details too lengthy to post here. It is currently being revised, so bear with me if you're interested in that. And finally... I will do my best to keep those of you joining me immersed, with fancy graphics, mood boosting music and attention to detail. Suggestions are most welcome, and I hope to learn a lot by exposing the AF to an even larger community. Welcome, to the Atlantic Federation! Thanks for viewing! and if you're coming with, See you soon!

At this location the original European Settlers came and met with the tribesmen of Nyanga, and so began the arduous journey which makes what Mayumba is today. The port is a thriving hub of markets, industry and crime, so lock the car doors and put up the windows... Fruit and vegetables are being unloaded and sorted, to be ready for shipping, some of it ends up on the street markets or in local shops. Trucks also stop here for rest stops or a tire change. Some factories are located here as well, such as D'acton's chemical production facility (the factory lot in the centre) and Patriot Protective's workshop (on the left). Some of buildings here have been around since colonial times, where sugar was processed from the plantations. There are also some warehouse depots throughout the port, where storage facilities and smaller factories are located One of the busiest freight terminals is the bulk freight dock, everything from food, to chemicals and clothes is shipped out from here. The boats though are small and mostly head north to neighbouring Gabon, some go to Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea. Here are the grain processing docks. Wheat, maize and hops and brought here by truck for processing and then shipped all over the world. These mills are owned and operated by the government, but have been infamously known for the poor conditions and terrible quality housing provided for the workers. The coal docks take up the majority of large shipping traffic in Mayumba. They also take up the most space in the port, by having a massive coal storage yard. In some effort to provide housing for the workers employed at the port the government built council houses and flats. Sadly they were poorly constructed and not properly mainitained, today they are riddled with crime and are in very bad need of re-development, but many workers have no other choice and have to live here to keep their families alive. Our last visit for the day is to one of the many very busy street markets at the Portside Townships. These usually occur all through the week and many stalls and shops continue selling right through the night. You can get everything you could ever think of at these markets, much of the stuff like food and some clothes are not terribly bad quality, but stay away from any electronics or branded clothing, these are almost always fakes and a waste of money! You also have to watch you pockets, pick pocketing is a frequent occurance in any city around here. We're back at the hotel, I hope you enjoyed your day out! Thanks guys for the comments on my last post! They are much appreciated!!
  13. The Big City

    Welcome to Tasbury, population 3,649,987 is the largest city in New Duveland. it is also the largest city and capital of New Munster Province and is arguably the economic, cultural and historic centre of the country. The city began as a penal settlement of the British but soon begin to thrive as an economic point, due to increasing immigration after gold was discovered in the surrounding areas, leading the a rich mix of cultural heritage today, with strong European and Asian settlements in the city, most notable China Town in the CBD. It's location also gives it a unique style, being on the entrance to the New Munster Sea, the largest brackish water in the Southern Hemisphere with cities such as Albury, Parahaka, Port Laoise, Tralee and Kinsale all relying on the small opening for shipping. That's just some history of the city, now for the images! The city is constantly changing, with new skyscrapers popping up all over the CBD and in key activity centres. The current tallest, Royal Tower stands 300m tall, overlooking Central Park and the crystal waters below. The Tasbury Opera House is the most famous landmark of the city, millions of tourists visit the site each year. Well into the night the city is still very much alive, offices still lit up as people work well into the night and residents and tourists getting ready for the night. I hope you've enjoyed Tasbury! Next up, the southern city of Leinster, capital of New Ulster Province. Bonus night view of New Duveland! See if you can match the cities from my wiki! http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=List_of_Cities_in_New_Duveland_by_Population

    It's another scene from Jl Prof Dr Watson, Kota Meriah in a rainy day:

    Kota Meriah received haze from the west.... the current status of PSI is around 200-290
  18. Avno, a reinvented city

    As I was too busy studying to release this update on the weekend, I can now seeing as I have had most of today and tomorrow off! Enjoy! (warning, pictures are from pre-updated city, maxis buildings will most likely show) [start/cj] We arrived in Avno, it was such a calming city, small but full of life. As much as I can understand, the city was once the site of a large port, the largest before Crestview's, although now it has transformed into a vibrant city centre. The docks were turned into extensive parks, stretching right across the coastline. This may be one of the only cities in the whole of Mirani without a CBD beachfront? Nevertheless, my friends and I wondered through the waterfront, visiting shops and cafes across the road, and setting down for a short brunch. We continued to walk the waterfront for an hour, reaching the town hall, which was separated into 3 different buildings, above ground at least. Now, we had to check into our hotel, we caught one of the cities bright green taxis and headed back to the centre of town, driving past the cities' suburbs which made me think of suburban Melbourne minus a few tropical roofs here and there otherwise the architecture were quite similar! We got to out hotel, unpacked what we needed and collapsed onto our beds, each having it's own carefully placed chocolate for us to enjoy. We were to stay the night and then head to the next city, Kingstown. BONUS REGION SHOT! Around Crestview's CBD and the inner city Parliament house is by the 2nd Marina heading north, with a quite large park. I still need to update the other parts of the city that haven't been updated yet, as you can see the style of hosing varies greatly in between the newer/updated tiles with the older versions, hopefully will update those parts soon!

  19. Long Overdue Update

    Ok, so It's been a while since my last update, I've been very busy with school, exams in 2 weeks! But, I have redesigned Mirani's capital, Crestview to be more in line with the country size. Here's some pictures from around the city! (Keep in mind, some of the sea walls broke while taking these pictures, they haven't been edited in anyway other than cropping and the city is largely a hotel/resort city.) Enjoy! The suburbs Asgard International Hotels, Cresview Close up of the downtown Whole city shot Another further out shot, but further south, showing the port redevelopment areas. (The large clump of tall buildings near the bottom of the picture are public housing, every city needs them!) CC Observation, the international landmark of the city The Crestview Cricket Grounds (CCG) The city's extensive beachfront And the city's tallest building, Capri Tower. () Replies in the next update! Which will hopefully be soon, continuing on from where I left off from.
  20. So this is a teaser from what I work on now.... It's a scene from Jl Prof Dr. Watson (the avenue one) in an intersection nearby Pasar Pakerisan, Pamekasan Selatan, Kota Meriah.
  21. In the Suburbs

    After getting out of our hotel, we went back to the beach for a while. Mirani beaches are some of the best in the world! We had to come back, I had a go at some fishing, I caught a rare native fish, but due to strict fishing regulations, I was not able to keep it, not that I wanted to. I gently placed it back in the water and watched it swim away. I will decide when I get back home to Coffs Harbour, wether or not to stay in Australia, or move to Mirani. I began looking at one of the few suburbs in Fernston. They are very green and have various different styles of architecture, mostly Australian mixed with European and American styles. There are lots of open parks and green spaces in the suburbs, with Australian Football dominating the local sport, there are always many parks open to everyone. My friends and I stopped off at one of the parks and kicked around a footy, I felt like I was back home! Upon getting to the edge of town, we realised we were in the richer areas of town, where famous Miranians live to get away from the bustling streets of Crestview. Drving past, I saw that they were relatively new buildings, is this the true Miranian style? I would love to live here! Replies RepublicMaster: Thank you! Fox: Thanks! Ah well, people do some crazy things! Sylvio Jorge: Thank you! Schulmanator: Beach party? Great idea! I'll send out the invites! haha Hazani Pratama: Thanks! Ggamgus: Glad you liked them! I like those boardwalks! Sam.: Thank you! Dabadon5: Thanks Jeckyll: Thank you! Looks like I did! Felano: Thanks! A simple effect can make a great photo! Ajee: I use this beach kit, TekindusT: Thanks! Spursrule14: I am honoured to have won "Excellent" Thank you! -Note, Miranian cars drive on the left, the cars are on the right because I have had a problem with NAM, reinstalled it so the cars will be on the left in one or two updates, thank you-
  22. New Holland | AIN

    Welcome to New Holland! Here are the stats. Flag: Location: http://puu.sh/23lUb Nation Name (Longest Official Form): Commonwealth Realm of New Holland Nation Name (Native Form): New Holland National Anthem: For these Lands National Motto: Libertas, et prospera Capital: Victoria Government: Constitutional Monarchy, Parliamentary Head of State: Queen Elizabeth II (Queen) Governor General- Queens Representative: Edward Salway Prime Minister: Grant Fredericks Offical Language(s): English Population: 3,805,505 Area: 152,256km2 Climate: Temperate GDP ($ PPP - Per Capita): $36,769 HDI: 908 Drives on the: Left Major Natural Resources: Medium deposits of Gold, Coal, Oil and Uranium. However the Uranium is not mined Major Import/Export Partners: Australia, US, NZ Main Industries: Agriculture, Horticulture, Fisheries, Tertiary Education, Manufacturing, High Tech goods and services, Tourism Link to map: http://i.imgur.com/2fHLzAU.png (it's big) History: The Islands of New Holland were first discovered by Abel Tasman in 1642 he named the islands after the province in the Netherlands. The Area was largely unexplored until James Cook returned in 1769 and mapped the entire coastline of New Holland. Settlement occurred in 1832 along with NZ. The colony progressed at a fast pace with over 10,00 settlers by 1840. New Holland became a Independent colony from New South Wales in 1851. The Representative Government was formed in 1852, in Victoria. Gold was discovered in the Southern Area in 1876. This caused a Gold rush with prospectors arriving from all over the world. This caused the City of Cambridge to swell with population and wealth as the miners moved to the region and other services. In 1907 after deciding not join the Australian Commonwealth the Colony gained Dominion status in the British Empire along with Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The New Holland army sent soldiers to WWI to fight with the British. Afterwards, the public seeing the heroism of their soldiers, there was a wave of national pride. Which gave impetus for the government to campaign for more sovereignty. This was ignored by the British Administration. In the 1920's New Holland gained a more Liberal approach to foreign affairs and national security and decreasing its dependence from the UK. When World War Two arrived NH troops were sent to Europe to fight the Germans. The defense of the Nation was left to the Royal Navy and later after the presence was diminished the US. After the war when NZ, Australia and the US signed the ANZUS treaty, New Holland declined to join wanting to keep foreign influence out of the country. When Britain entered the European Economic Community, New Holland embarked on a liberal Free-Trade economy, in order to protect its economy and people. Over the years Respective government have adopted a People First policy regarding the Economy and Foreign relations. There are constant referendums on upcoming laws and changes in government. There is a high level of Public immersion in National politics. Citizens enjoy a high level of living and safety. For more info see the New Holland wiki page. Now here are some pictures of Cambridge City. Out in the Suburbs Southern Cross Arena Night shots! Central Station. Thanks for viewing. If you liked it Comment and Rate

The hotel didn't have free wi-fi ($10 per night ), so I didn't make any New Year's pictures... But here's a little something coming soon to Atlantsia...For those of you that have been paying ridiculously close attention, you may note that the one city of Atlantsia I haven't covered is Badi al Zaman, which is about to come up. I want to make some special thanks before I show the teaser: First I would like to thank Fox for constantly reminding me about the Badi al Zaman project, and for even scheduling flights to the airport before I had started working on it. Thanks my motivational friend! Second I would like to thank Ernst (Peter007), for helping me last summer working my way through BAT. I would have quit BAT long ago without his assistance on Skype. Finally, I want to thank all the great guys at AIN, USNW, CINL, and Simtropolis. Whether it's commenting, Skyping, or Private Messaging, many of you have helped, inspired, motivated, criticized, and encouraged me. This CJ would have ended after the first update had you not. And without further ado, here is Badi al Zaman (BAZ) International Airport: (Note: This is only a Teaser, full update next time) Atlantsia is today the #1 CJ on Simtropolis by rating (If you don't believe me, go to the New CJ Section, click Custom Filters, and select CJs by Rating). I am so glad to know that, and am very happy that you guys are enjoying this CJ. Thank you very much for your continued support, and I hope to keep things alive throughout 2013 .
