    Sunset on Saïto's island

    Asian paradise lost in the south-east part of Pacific ocean, Saïto is an independant city-state under republican democracy regime though corruption and criminality raised as fast as the developing economy.

    The state is actually a gemely-city-state as it spread on two islands named Saïto and Namburo or formerly Shi Tuong and Nanpo Huong .
    Since its discovery and first settlement about 30000 years ago, the archipelago has been under many different domination for example Malasian , Chinese and Japanese .

    Many landmarks witness this glorious and varied History, as the Shonokano castle on Saïto island . Building huge structures for the sake of local gods is a strong and deep tradition here, the oldest human legacy of the state is for sure the Kuang Trung sanctuary.

    The natural beauty of the islands fits perfectly to those mysterious heritage, many is still to be discovered but human beings are smart when it comes to build a shelter and the city has grown fast these last decades.

    The small fishermen village have changed a lot and modernity have brought many progress.

    But it brought many sorrows too especialy for the poorest part of the population, now forced to live in slums like Hymada port's one.

    The Sea port is the first door to the paradise city, and sometimes customers can be shocked by the contrast between the fast expending economy and the tough conditions of living there.

    The state is still growing at a fast paste and you will discover a lot more trough the next weeks, so stay tuned to Saïto and enjoy !!!

    To end the first episode i let you with a couple of the most beautiful sunsets of the island.

    Cities in this game can be whatever they are... I think it's not realistic to have such high buildings on a relatively small island, but it doesn't have to be realistic... I still like it! =)

      thank you very much and again as ever you understood better than everyone else and for that you deserve a double thank ^^ ; building such a varied and dense town can't be realistic on such islands, it s a fantansy inspired by real concept and fullfilled with real buildings...... again the first aim is taking pictures .... :) thank you

    I wasn't sure if i should give you 5 stars or 4. That skyscrapers on the little island are really out of place. Totally.
    But beside that it's a really very nice island town with great highlights like Himeji Castle or Angkor Wat. Also i like the slums. A nice modern island :-)

    All in all not bad conception and street layout, But downtown ( size and style ) is not balanced with rest of the city cause its too big.
    PS editing could be better, especially with the sun reflection.
    But u got some skill in planning so that will go for 3 stars.
    Just my oppinion, no hard feelings, i bet another city will be at least x2 better ;)
    Cheers !

    I give it 5 stars for originality and concept. I always like the execution.

    But despite giving it 5* i have to underline some mistakes on realism

    a. The control tower at the airport is located at a point that kakes no sense at all. Depending wind direction, airplanes land on airports from either end of the runway. Some days one side, other day other side. The control tower shoudl not be in colission course with the runway by any means.

    b. The sun reflection in the sea makes no sense at all. Setting sun and its reflection maust be on the same line, colinear and not having a vertical distance. When you paste reflection image move it so it's below the sun and not in a distance.

      haha thank you !

      a) i must say i m no pro about airport : i ve made my first flight a couple of weeks ago at the age of 32 .....

      b) i ve made nothing to the picture, i mean i did not photoshoped it, nor edit it in any way, these are 100% pure screenshots from ingame ^^ although i had the same thought has i saw it
