    It's the Auckland Map.
    City is still a WIP - Next weekend I'll make a new update showing further development. Unfortunately I'm not at home next week. So it's taking some time :(

    Hey, really good city. Just I hope that you add a bit more of the story part
    for that CJ here, it would emphasize your natural growth simulation,
    and also make the reader really feel the atmosphere of your city.
    Only criticism would be that in my humble opinion,
    the Santa Maria di Fiore Cathedral by Monty would have looked better
    in your city than the Notre-Dame does, but nevermind...

    What building did you use for Grand Palace and where did you get that fountain?

    Hi, it's the Buckingham Palace. The fountain is part of the building. It's one of the Blueprints in the europe menu.

    I appreciate a lot your work in this european style city but I feel a little frustrated. There should be more pictures.

    Ah, nice!
    I am not so sure about the style of the churches in general,
    but one has to acknowledge that there are not too many
    churches to use. But please, do not try to build that huge neo-gothic
    cathedral within the town, it would not fit.
    What about an episode about a possible consolidation of farming
    (Flurbereinigung) within the Greyton area? Especially the farming
    eastern of Nika and eastern of Greyton? Or maybe a little story
    about cattle farming with a large cattle market and cattle slaughterhouse
    as there were such in e.g. Buenos Aires and Chicago.
    There is a mod by the guys of Generation Cities that offers some
    animated cows and pigs that are ploppable ;)

    Anyways, keep up the good work!

    I have to admit, that I haven't really considered a episode about farming and stuff. But I'll might give it a try. Have to check my pictures if I'm able to present the developing of farming areas in Greyton. As for cattle farming and slaughterhouses a little diversifation is always nice :D

    <- yeah, and this kind of consolidation would fall directly into the era you just show
    within your screenshots, the cattle breeding and the cattle markets came up big a bit later
    in time, with upcoming 20th century, I would say.
    But, if it was too difficult, just skip it, no one forces you, except for yourself :p
