Around a year ago I posted one of my cities here. Although it was made in CXL 2011, I got nice feedback. So I'm brave enough to upload another town with old graphics and just a few mods.
The city is called Glādriēna (It's difficult to explain, how to pronounce it. If any latvian or lithuanian happens to read it, I'm sure they can say the name perfectly). I experimented a long time with different maps and finally The Great Lake was perfect for me.
At current state with the population of 48 000 the city looks like this:

I don't like too many skyscrapers in a city. Glādriēna's are here.
There's my city hall

As you can see from the map, I have built two bridges over the lake. One to the north and the other to the west. An airport would be nice in the west and I'm thinking about expanding the town to the north: more low-density housing and some appartment houses (using Lithuanian residences http://xlnation.city/resources/soviet-lithuanian-5-storey-apartments-vol_1.271/ if it works in CXL2011). The city could grow to 75 000 perhaps. I think, my slow laptop would just crash after that .
It's not long before we will be moving. The new hosting has been setup and the next thing to be done is to change the DNS. When it's changed it may take between 24 to 48 hours to take effect. During this time XLN will be closed so it can be backed up. When the new DNS takes effect, you will see a basic page with a message regarding the move. Note: It may take up to two weeks to get XLN up and running again.Dismiss Notice
