Looks good. The only thing I didn't like about Cities XL is you don't have the same level of control when placing public transit like in Sim City 4.

Indeed... It does lack a bit in that department, but with proper road usage its fine... Actually traffic makes way more of a difference in Cities than in Simcity...

District In Depth Part 5: South Shore City

- Introduction
The region of Itova was growing quickly... The satelite towns experienced prosperity and citizen satisfaction was high... It was now decided that a more central city was required to service the southern areas of Itova that were experiencing this growth... Thus South Shore City council was born, the new council authority stretched over all the southern districts, from Blue Bay in the east to Twin Tides in the west... This newly developed council immediately began planning and construction of a the central city...

- Initial Roads
Planning began in the last readily available land space... The relatively flat and sound area around the coast between Blue Bay and Crescent Bay... Infastructure as usual was the first to recieve attention by the city council... And soon contractors from Blue Bay, Crescent Bay and even a few from Twin Tides began construction of new road networks...


Initial Roads of South Shore City...

A new bridge was constructed perpendicular to that of Crescent Bay Bridge... The new bridge effectively extended the 8 lane highway across the harbour to the northern part of Itova... During the construction of the bridge new roads were laid in the area planned for the new city... A port area was quickly established to assist freight and transportation to the nation...

- Current City
It wasn't long before new residents and businesses flocked to the area as land was zoned and smaller roads and infastructure established... A grand city quickly grew as industry and commerical offices flourished at an alarming rate...

The area close to the main ports quickly developed into a hi tech industrial area once again harnessing Itova's brilliant minds in innovation and enterprise, with easy access to shipping the area became a chief exporter of highly sort after products and inventions...

The central area developed rapidly into the financial and commercial center of the whole southern shores, many large businesses relocated their main offices there as skyscrappers and towers expanded into the sky...

With the growing industry and commerical activities, new residents swarmed into the newly zoned residential areas spanning towards Blue Bay in the east... Highly paid exucutives established themselves in central city appartment towers, skilled and unskilled workers moved to the medium density suburbs surrounding the CBD and the elities built large mansions along the waterfront...


Downtown quickly expanded...


The new bridge offered great sights for tourists who climbed the bridge on guided tours...


South Shore City... Central to the southern districts...

- Attractions
With the growing population so to came the demand for more entertainment services... South Shore City became a hub for two unique venues...

Mystic Island Theme Park was developed by the Royce Family... After the grand opening it quickly became the southern regions prime entertainment location, offering all that could be desired... Hotels, Casinos, Theme Parks, Rides, Theater, Beaches and much more... Tourists and people out for adventure flocked to the island...


Mystic Island... A modern adventure...

With the combining of the districts under one roof... A culture of the south developed... This citizen pride in their communities soon developed numerous sport teams from the suburbs and districts... From these teams rose the SSC Mystics... The South Shore Cities own professional sports teams... With donations from across the region and large investments by sponsoring businesses constructions began and was quickly completed on Mystic Stadium...


Mystic Stadium and surrounds...


A unique view inside Mystic Stadium...

The hard working citizens of SSC loved nothing more than to party on the weekends and sometimes even during the work week... Downtown SSC quickly developed a party atmosphere almost rivaling Twin Tides as many clubs, bars and other venues opperated long into the night...


Downtown SSC...

- My Notes
Hi all... This updates effectively completes the first part of Itova... The souther region is largely finished... I might see if I can expand Aiwa Village a little more over the hills since some parts are looking bare... Although I'm hoping that a forest mod tool will be released shortly (he hinted at it in the custom content forum) which will solve this bare look hopefully lol...

Um what else is there to report... Nothing too remarkable about South Shore City... Just a finishing touch on the region bringing it altogether really... One thing that annoys me though is that the stadium doesnt look in use... It was my first blueprint and I expected better I have sat there stareing at it on high graphics for ages but nothing ever happens, just remains empty sadly as I would have loved to get some action shots of it lol.

Um what else... Not much haha the city works fine and I think is more efficent as I think Im getting better at using/placing services... Like South Shore City has more population than any of my other districts but it only has one of each service (health, police, fire, education) while the others had numerous and still showed some dissatisfaction...

One thing you cant see really in the pictures is I made a little part of trees between Blue Bay and
South Shore City... As a nice pleasant link between the two...

So yeah... The next step is a few satelite towns in the north... And then I might give Itova central a go lol although Im nervous since I think it will be hard...

So yep any feedback, tips, comments are welcome and appreciated...

Thanks

Ill leave you with a shot of the entire south shore


South Shore... The entire region...

Aiwa Village Update 1

- Gallo Grove
With the new South Shore City Council and the development of SSC... The council looked for spare land to increase agricultural production... The small valley of Gallo was proposed and earthworks began to make it suitable for development...

A tunnel was built under the main highway to link Gallo to Crescent Bay, and new roads were constructed linking it to Aiwa Village in which district Gallo belong... Soon a small town sprung up as land was zonned and farms established in the valley... The residents quickly started calling their town Gallo Grove...


Gallo Grove...
