CJ San Cristobal

a Havana Style City

  1. peterycristi
    Hi folks,
    welcome to San Cristobal, the Capital of an Island somewhere in the caribbean sea. My Intention is to create a city in the style of La Habana, Cuba and so it is no wonder, that San Cristobal is very much inspired by the cuban capital. Here we go. Lets start with an overview of what we got so far. Obviousliy its still under construction, but i hope, you like it so far…

    After you've seen the location of the city in total, lets start with the old harbor district...

    This is a pretty good city. How did you get stairs?

      Well, its pretty easy: just built a pedestrian path bridge. If you don't pass water, it will just create a simple path. After building it, you can use the upgrade button - like for all the other streets - to upgrade to stairs.
