    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!

    And you don't need to build e.g. the Petronas Twin Towers.
    If your cities consist of rather flat houses, and the CBD's skyscrapers
    are not that tall, a building like the Twin Towers would rather
    lessen your country's identity...

    I really like this idea! +1. But how about the rescources part i've have a few questions about that?
    +Are those only linked mods with this country like. their own traffic signs , flags , skyscrapers , shops , landmarks , maps and etc. Fictional ones or also real life onces?
    +Did their have modders who did work for all City Journal makes , like requests or did the journal maker need to make mods on their own?
    +Did they need to share a download link with all mods from their folder and the city , so everybody can download the city and play with it? If its yes do we have toturials about how to do that?
    +Is there a google map like google itself with Streetview , icons and road options??? Every planet: Mars , Earth , Moon , Titan , Venus , The Sun and even the whole sky have it. And every country. I can share you a link how to make a panorama from yust scrath pictures. If the link still works. And how gonna progam that?
    +Is it free for costing money?
    +And did we get a MediaWiki page? For all the countries and city states information?
    +And where did we get a share a country topic for accepting or ignoring the new CJ's?
    +Wich contest did we get like: Cities XL Olympic games or XLNsongfestival?
    Thank you.

    Nice to see you've decided to start it. I've already forgotten about it (again ;)). I'm not that active regarding the game itself but I'd like to join anyway.
