I really have to thank aitortilla01 for his Paris Pack and the unlimited version, that allows a curvy streetlayout and a varied buildingstyle.
Also i like this ingame map a lot for its landscape with the rocky hills, the lakes and the spectacular coast.
Amanpour is the biggest city of the state Vasconia and also one of the wealthiest cities in the N.U.R. The metropolis is located on the northern part of the vasconian peninsula at the vasconian sea. The former french colony and exclave became part of the N.U.R. after a plebiscite in 1930. The federal government decided to keep the citys flair and individuality. Until today Amanpour has french influence, this is shown in the cityscape or the official bilingualism of the city (french, english) for example. Mainly due to art, culture, landscape and lifestyle tourism is a very important economic factor, about 12,5 million foreign tourists are visiting the city during a year.
