CJ Coldwater

Largest City In The Countrys Northwest

  1. Inan
    Population:
    1382657
    Map:

    Game Version:
    • Cities XL Platinum
    Welcome to the largest city and capital of Vasconia, Coldwater! It‘s located in the north of Vasconia on 16 islands (10 populated) in a very mountainous landscape and is the city with the fastest development in the past decades. The financial and commercial sectors grew, also many industrial companies settled here due to some controversial city government permits (at the expense of the environment). There were violent protests from the directly affected residents, and there were even occasional riots.

    Nonetheless: Coldwater is the wealthiest city in the countrys‘ northwest and one of the wealthiest in the whole country. The city also has a very attractive location at the beautiful shore, the proximity to lake Vasconia and the Basmacota Mountains, what increases the level of quality of life of the citizens.

    The city government is endeavoring to take advantage of this in particular and to increase the number of tourists.

    Awesome city and great layout! I really admire "finished" maps, that's why I don't post many CJs because the maps are not fully finished :D

    The Mendelssohn Bridge is great, however I don't like the second bridge so much. I understand that you probably need the road connection but maybe you could have built a tunnel through the bay.

    ...and yeah, the airport is a bit weird ;)

    But I really like the looks of the skyline, the port area and all the little details! Well done!!

    Obviously your new city is still a success and deserves 5 stars and all my admiration.
    There is a lot to say about "Coldwater", a very nice idea and one that is less successful.
    Like the "Monty" bridge, I find that it is too much on your map.
    However the double red bridge is a very nice achievement.

    As usual, you managed to finish the city you started. This is not easy on Cities XL. Not everyone can say the same. Bravo and thank you for making a new city newspaper!

    On any map you build you make a masterpiece. The way you make the transition between the natural area and the city, the transition between the low and high density of buildings, the way you build harbors (you always have a lot of harbors and yet the city looks bigger) and not to mention the way you combine The buildings (Construction of the "Perseus". For months, I've been thinking, how to build around that dock and I can't believe what you did), they impressed me in all your cities.
    You are an inspiration, I hope you can continue, as much as possible, with the city's journals.
    The only thing I can blame for is the place where you choose to build the bridges, in this city I would have built only the red bridge.

    Five stars!

    I have to say that I am a bit disappointed by the area around the Wakefield Bay, though. Regarding the airport, I have so many questions. Like really a lot^^ I mean, why did you not just make it a small airport for business jets? Leave the cargo hub and all the larger aircraft! Also, the container terminal cranes as well as the hotel towers and the hills look dangerouly close to the runway and its ends. Even if you allow for landings just from one direction, you need to enable a turn around. It's not Lukla, after all :D
    Also, the highway around the bay looks quite wide despite the small land area. In my eyes, a solution with elevated highways above common roads would have looked nice. A bit like you did already with the Mendelsohn bridge itself.

    But that bridge looks fabulous, love the concept and the realization, great work! It must have been quite time-consuming, but your effort really paid off! And you did not just build it, you added a nice background story, which made it even more remarkable!

    I also like your idea with the villain's modern villa on top of the hill, well done, and it gives a fantastic view over the city!

    The industrial areas alongside the coast show a fantastic design, and that dock was nicely decorated!

    And of course, the skyline looks awesome, a bit like Hong Kong. I do have to admit that I got the impression that you were inspired a bit by Rozenburg by facaden, but maybe that's just my impression^^

    Last but not least you have done an outstanding job with all the parks close to the coast. I love it how you e.g. integrated the water of the map to create a small pond within one of the parks!

    I only miss some history concerning the name of the city^^
