    To my taste too many tall buildings, but it is a fantastic skyline. Congratulations

    You did a very good job, but to be perfect I suggest you should use a mod to change those horrible cartooned characters. Try to search it in here.

    Wow. Your city has an interesting history, as well as some major population booms. Seven hundred-thousand people came within twenty years? I bet construction companies made a fortune because of your city!

    Anyway, your city has a pretty good layout, but I recommend that you use the [spoiler]text[/spoiler] more often, as well as some writing within those tabs.

    Overall, this is a great city journal. Keep up the good work.

    It looks a lot like my city, only that there's much repeated building. I loved the city and the mountains make a very nice urban landscape od your city. Of course, as my advice, dare to use mods. At first I was afraid, and then are very useful to give a personal touch to your city. Congrats :) 5/5

    I like the story and the nice views, but it would be nice if you use some mods to give the city a more distinctive character.

    The city looks good. There is a lot of variety in the buildings, but the city is not green enouth. So 4 stars

    It should make "The Look"
