The combination of old and new

    Hi again! I have finished my new city named Debracie. Thank you all, who have visited, liked and commented on my last city Gladriena. It inspired me to start new projects. This time I made a slightly larger city, than Gladriena. I started with the old town and then built skyscrapers and residential areas around it. My idea was to create a city with a large old town area and a compact city center next to it. I have also developed my skills with RHM. I haven't used this mod much yet. As usually, I don't like much grids in road networks and I tried to keep it realistic :).

    So, first of all the skyline...:

    ...and what I mean about the combination of old and new:

    I consider this city finished and I have already started a new project :)

    4/5,
    I'm going with 4 because this is in your wheelhouse and looks pretty good for what you do. I do love your choices, but then there are some I dislike. Why not update to boardwalks instead of using walkways along a beach? You really should get the promenade pack, your beachfront looks too simple. I always feel if one is going to be very simple with smaller cities they should fill it in w/agriculture and natural resource (forest and fields). Make the entire map look kinda like a county, so to say. Anyway, I dig your style, as usual. : )

      Hi! Thanks for your feedback. The thing is - I'm kinda lost in this pack/patch world. There seems to be so many of them and I haven't really taken a deeper look into it. Anyway, I have downloaded some forests, but as soon as I planted them in one of my cities, my computer almost crashed :D. Well, I'll check out this promenade pack (thanks for the tip). And it's nice to hear, that you like my style :)

    I like its simplicity, the city is small yet big in a "city" way.
