Hey gents! I'm trying to upload my first XLN CJ across the Pacific. As a new fish, all your suggestive comments are welcome! Hope you find interesting things in this city. And, if any poor English, please forgive me and point it out. Thank you!
This city is named as Sytan, which is short for Sung's Titan . Let's call her S for short!
Although map size is general 10 * 10, S needs 600km^2 to hold most of her inhabitants and further 1600km^2 to sustain an extra large amount of secondary industry. The main pillars of S include metal forging, petrochemical, machinery and vehicle manufacturing, electronic, medicine, education, finance, real estate, trading, etc. Compared to traditional big cities, S lays emphasize on both secondary and tertiary industry.
S city wishes to be the fifth world top city after NewYork, London, Paris and Tokyo. To achieve this goal, S needs you to give opinions or check out the problems.
Sorry I'm not that familiar with PS. The photoes are only slightly processed....
Fellows mentioned to upload areal images. Here they are. The city plants high density buildings even on the map's edge to make up the population. So there is hardly any suburb around....
Here are some glances at S's industry. They are not very beautiful as I'm just building them to make up the income. Some of them are big factories of the world top 500. This kinds of companies contributes greatly to the city's competitive power. Photos are not processed with PS.
Big city must have a good traffic system. Comute employment, bussiness affairs, travellers and good transporting requires a lot.
Raiways are just dummy. No cargoes running along....
Main airport has over 100 jetways, one 4.5km runway to hold big transporters and other two 3km runways which can hold the largest A380. The secondary airport, which real big cities all have, just uses the default game model.
For rail travelling, the main station has many platforms for electronic trains and one highrise platform for sight-seeing cargoes. S City also has other two stations. They are for industry delievery and commute mainly.
S seaport has two great sections. The first includes two container loading areas, and the second applies for bulkers and shipyards. S seaport can hold big cruise ships but that is not its main feature.
The first CBD of S. Old NYC styles. Buildings have larger walls and smaller glasses. Some even can see the bricks.
S City History and Art Museum
Old town, old painting....
Main CBD: high rises and too crowded. Critical voices reveal that this introduce a bad skyline and light polution. Surpporters say this show the ambition and power of the city. Anyway, this is it....
Seashore CBD: for the land price of the main CBD is much too high and it will lead to lack of investment of foreign groups, and as well as the rising amount of trading requirment, the 3rd CBD now stands high along the beach of S City.
S City also has two commerce-bussiness-mixed CBD. But they are not very famous as CBD. People general know them as streets for buying goods!
The first commerce street sells goods that for most of the common people. Price is low and useful for daily life.
The second lies along the beach aside of the tourist and gumbling town and thus price is high.
The old city hall and the hero square now are used for documentation and sight seeing.
New city hall and the local UN HQ. This area contains a lot of foreign institutions, ambassys and religion houses.
How can a big city attract people? For cities like Sydney or Toronto, a good living envirment is the key. For cities like NY and Tokyo, chances for making money, getting medical attandence and education are at the top. S City is like the latter. Besides those factories, high bussiness risings and big hospitals, the colleges and universities of S City impress people the most.
Three muskteers of multiversities of S: the 1st, 2nd and the public 3rd.
Twin stars of science and engineering: Science and Technology University, College of Science and Engineering.
Vocational School of S:
University of Medical, as well as her subordinate hospital.
College of Bussiness. The new triumphal arch stands for the MBA edifice.
Tourisim sites. Besides those shown above which can attract people's eyeballs, here are some other points where you can go if travellig in S.
The area specially filled with "too many" landmarkers like Eifel, Taj, Ankor and Kremlin and so on is meant to be a world theme park for sight seeing. Otherwise, it will be strange to have some ancient building is a big mordern city.
All right. I guess this is it for the time being. More detailed data is in the update but you can ignore it if you are only interested in picture seeing.
Thanks for watching!
I have increased our donation amount due to a price increase from the hosting company. It happened last year but I've been covering it so far..... Also PayPal is charging more so I still end up covering extra amounts due to the exchange rate fees.Dismiss Notice
