CJ City Sytan: Find What You Want Here

A heavily multifunctional city struggling to be a top class international metroplis.

  1. heonetsung
    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. 010e63c2d5628535e531590194ef76c6a6ef639f.jpg

    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.

    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:p.

    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!

    Nice city and story!
    I like the general concept of your city,
    and you filled a whole map!
    There are some flaws, notheless.
    E.g. the pylons of the motorways on roads below.
    And I personally am not such a fan of those
    totally mixed cities, you have monuments from all
    around the world there, it looks a bit inconsistent.
    But your skills with RHM and with city planning in general
    do outweigh that easily!

      Thanks for your comments!
      Strange, now the poor roads and the landmarks you mentioned are indeed not very lovely even from the view of myself, after I watched the CJs others post here. I guess that's something I learned and there will be surely more to cover in the future!

    Pro's: Amazingly large and dense
    Well detailed parks/plazas/natural areas (love the star of David)
    Great interchanges and traffic designs

    Con's: Too much repetition of the same buildings in some places
    Too many historical landmarks (but looks like you had fun planning those areas, just not very immersive)

      True. Most of the landmarks are meant to be a world-theme-park for tourists. However I guess they are not well planned with those trees or plazas.
      For duplication, I plant almost every building manually so it saves time. But they are indeed ugly QAQ.
      Anyway, thanks for the comment. I'll try to improve them.
