Ok so, first off, this is my first time making a city journal, I hope I do make things right (quite a nervous newbie here). So, I am working on with a new city, Teiko Metropolitan Area, although technically it is not that new since I have already created a dozen districts in the region already. I just decided to make a CJ because I also want to track the growth of the region, a lot of fresh green lands at the right side that has not been touched yet! Furthermore. you will notice that all of the names are in Japanese well this is because I'm taking the names from my favorite anime (if you are a fan, you probably know it from the title of this journal). Also, I am not very good with terraforming so I usually just use pre-made regions, I am more concerned with creating realistic cities and giving them dynamics. Anyhow, enough introduction, let's get down to business. I should probably start with a little journey through the city. This is Teiko Metropolitan Area, a region in a making, current population is 678,664 inhabitants. I would like to show you all the districts but first off, I will start with Kaijo District since this is the first district in the region and is one of the major industrial centers. If you are looking for it above, it is exactly to the right of the middle of the image. Welcome to Kaijo District. First off, there are two ways to get into the city. 1. Most people ride automobiles through the highway or via road connections. This one is the connection to Kamata South (2nd largest district in the region so far, though not quite it look like because it somehow looks peaceful, it actually isn't, one can simply imagine the hell traffic this road is going through). 2. People can also the district via ferry, Kaijo has one of the busiest of waters in the metropolitan region. The image here is the north harbor. Oops seems like the ferry is not that visible, it is on the left side of the picture anyway. Ok, time to get a little trip around town. Note: Please forgive me if there are little to no cars in the pic, I had actually forgotten to change the settings. Anyhow, bon voyage. 1. Kaijo has the third largest industrial center and has the two nearly up to full capacity seaports working, making it the busiest (so far). Here is a snapshot of the industrial center close-up. Most of the factories are hi-tech and the the ones shown are into software production. 2. Here are random shots of the city center, although it only has a population of around 50000 (estimate), it does exhibit some tall commercial buildings which are somehow grouped into this one big cluster. The district enjoyed major economic boom that led to the construction of many office buildings. This is one of the commercial areas in the district. This trio is the heart of the commercial center. Well, it has nothing to do with being the center or being the tallest, it simply is that these three buildings are among the first set of 'high-rises' in the town. The blue glass building to the right is the former HQ of SZT Laboratories but the company has since transferred to a new location (Don't worry, I'll show you where.., I promise. ). It is now occupied by Kaijo Animation and Arts Inc, the largest modeling agency and animation production company in the district. It is also among the biggest companies in the whole metropolitan region but still quite a pint compares to SZT Industries. This is the town plaza, though technically one of the town plazas but most people refer to this place as the bookworms hub, you can totally see the library at the right. This place is where most bookworms hang out. 3. And here are some residential... Quite a silent district anyhow.... This district has the biggest area for low-rise housing in the whole region (so far). Most of the people in Kaijo prefer low rise housing, well for some odd reasons they want to live in huge mansions that elegant penthouses. Yup, you got it, most of the people living in the low density area have high density of cash. This is one of the two high schools in the district, it is named Avenue High School. It was simply named after it because it was built along an avenue, weird huh? Here are more random shots around the town. 1. This school is the premier Kaijo High School, currently the largest and the oldest in the district. It is also the best which most of the sims say. Well but it has certainly lived up to its reputation, now this school has produced top government officials and pro athletes in the past 40 years by the way. Among the notable alumni would be Kise Ryouta who is a famous model and a proud Kaijonese. Why he so famous? You'll about to know. 2. The avenue overpass. That highway is a circumferential one, you'll get what I mean in my next update while the avenue is a local thoroughfare, it is named Kise Avenue, named after a famous model in the town because he usually does his photo shoots either at the green lush areas of the place or along the sidewalks of the avenue, well one simply cannot live without asphalt eh? . That avenue leads to the Kaijo University to the right BTW. (Sorry, I really want to use NAM but computer can't handle it for a moment, especially for big cities. Also for this reason, I don't add any mods at all except for a few building plugins). Lastly, this is an aerial view of Kaijo District taken from a plane landing in the next district. There is still only one airport in the whole region (so far). That's it for now folks! Thanks for visiting I hope to see you again. Will be posting other districts soon.
