    Hi guys, welcome to the City of Alcalá, the gate to the north!

    无标题.jpg
    Introduction
    Alcalá is the nineth biggest city of the Republic of San Alonso and is located on the north coast of Alamor Sea and at the edge of the Sierra del Fuego. The population is about 500,000 in 2016.

    The city is known for its coldest weather and longest winter among the country. Its nickname The Last Hearth (which comes from the Song of Ice and Fire) is well-earned, as winters here are dry and freezing cold, with a 24-hour average in January of only −20.4 °C. Summers can be cool and adorable, with a July mean temperature of 15.0 °C.

    The city has direct jurisdiction of 6 districts: Zócalo, Santa Lucía, Pichuta, Jalapa, Verde and Samara.
    The highway and railway to the north ends in Alcalá, which brings this city a high growth of economy. The port of the city, Puerto Gordo, also plays a important role in its development.

    其实没有美图秀秀处理过的原图会更好,不过这座城市还是很棒。

      现在我这个炸鸡已经卡的不行了,盖不下去了,背面的山光秃秃的,于是就弄个景深。。。至于调色什么的,夜景太黑要补个光,不过我承认有好多图弄的太花哨了。。。

    I wish i had those editing skills! The city is nicely done, a bit to "ordered" here and there, but that's just a matter of taste. Well done!

    Boy! What do I start with? The city is just SO WELL DONE!
    The only thing that I don't like is that I feel it's kinda small, any plans for future development?

      I'm planning a new bigger tropical city. Aye, this city is finished, because as a winter city there are less buildings avilable (without palm trees) If i continue to build it, the buildings will be full of repetitions.

    Great job man ! Really nice looking city :) And great presentation.
    Love the " sketchings " pictures. Density and urbanism is looking pretty good !
    Also i see you made city map :) For more "google map " look add layers with colors - blue for water, green for parks, dark grey for industry, etc.
    Also the plazas and park that are in first plan on pictures i suggest you to add trees manualy, cause default plazas are not realistic.

    Keep up the good work ! :)
