Greetings everyone!... and welcome to the COUNTRIES XL Project. After long months & a new website, we are ready to launch! But first, let's get refresh our memory with a quick overview about what's COUNTRIES XL is about. Like the spirit behind XL Nation we want to propose to you to "Share/ Extend/ Enjoy" in a new way Cities XL and give the XLNation community a "multiplayer" experience. How about building and populating a planet all together with cities that are part of countries you are ruling? You are in? Then... welcome to Alpha Centauri & to COUNTRIES XL How does it work? In COUNTRIES XL, you join a team and create a "country" with other members of XLN. You will define a gameplay strategy and make choices to specialize your cities. We want to feel that your cities are linked together in any way you may find suitable. We want unique cities & unique countries with their stories, with their unique landmarks. We want rural areas & megapolis, touristic resorts & industrial complexes. Maybe your team will decided building a USA style city? or European? Asian? Or totally different? Show us what you are capable of! COUNTRIES XL spirit is more of a cooperation than a competition. Our moderation team will animate the project with small events, in order to make you win some special features for your city. Maybe you'll be the only city on Alpha Centauri to host the "Tour Eiffel" or/and the "Petronas Towers"? How about that? Don't you feel already the excitement & the glory that awaits you? ) Soon we will be filling the different parts of this forum to let you understand more in details any aspect of the gameplay and start the recruitment of players! See you soon on Alpha Centauri!
