The idea is to build a center downtown, surrounded by farmlands and small residental sites. Sadly you cant name them yet, but i ll find maybe a moment to name same items on the pictures i put up in my journal.
Boulogne is a city I envisioned as my first long term project. Most cities I started I gave up on quickly, due to the lack of challenge. (i always started with expert mode on). For once, I turned it off and wanted it to develop it the natural way. It can make the city much more unpredictable.
The first area I developed was Saint-Isaac. it's placed near the border of the town with a few direct links to it's industry. With in mind I ll build freeways later on, I decided to leave some areas open yet to place them.
The farm lands draw along the mountain chain, creating a natural border between the still empty downtown, the seaside holiday area (which will developped as downtown will develop) and the south side open lands. I most likely will leave everything on top of the mountains clean, and wont build up there.
For now, most is all medium residental, with a few exceptions in the direction of downtown. A low residental area will later on be placed, mainly for executives and elites.
View on saint-isaac, the eastern residental area. Seperated sites of low skilled and skilled residents. This was the first area i developed with in the middle an office-strip.
roadmap of Boulogne (20-3-2015)
Aimed downtown, where the first flats are starting to rise. The natural barrier of farmland is keeping downtown and the small villages arround boulogne seperated, but becoming later part of the big picture.
Work in Progress.
