    Introducing Fisher's Landing, a small US City of 23,330 founded in 1852. Baker Agriculture Land Grant College was founded in 1872 just outside town along Taylor's Ferry Rd (now US Highway 12). You can easily notice the test plots where various farming practices are being researched. The college expanded into viniculture research in the 1990's, shortly after the first vineyards began to appear in the valley. The college features a working vineyard attracting students from all parts of the United States.

    My thought process for this contest. Fisher's Landing naturally grew up around a Ferry Crossing setup by Franklin Taylor, a smart entrepreneur who saw a need to help early settlers move goods easier across the river. Naturally a road soon linked to the Ferry and the road took on the name Taylor's Ferry Rd. With the advent of the automobile the United States began construction of the US Highway system in the 1920's. Taylor's Ferry then became known as US12 and Fisher's Landing city fathers created two one way sections through town to better ease traffic and provide space for future expansion.

    In the 1950's the United States began construction of the Interstate System. These limited access highways circumvented the small towns such as Fisher's Landing. Interstate 92 now skirts around the north side of town with three exits offering access to Fisher's Landing.

    I believe Fisher's Landing is a strong contender for:
    1. Best Farm or Rural Region
    2. Best Realistic City
    3. Best Green City

    Welcome To IDGS City

    [​IMG]

    IDGS City is the capital of South East Sumatra province in Indonesia. Located on the southern coast, and with 4,193,851 inhabitants at the 2015 census, IDGS City is the second largest city in Indonesia behind New Jak. and the largest Indonesian city outside Java. Its built-up (or metro) area made of 18 municipalities or districts was home to 8,103,696 inhabitants at the 2015 census.

    [​IMG]
    Sky View of IDGS City​

    IDGS City lies on the banks of the Aion River and Lineage River which feed into a naturally sheltered harbor and then into the Straits of Indo, it has helped the city grow in significance as a trading port. Its elevation varies between 2.5 - 37.5 metres above sea level. Located in the central part of IDGS Regency, IDGS City is surrounded by satellite cities and towns such as Inna Muaro Town, Dossena City, Gambon Town, Rickers City which help the city become a new urban area in Indonesia which known as 'Indogamers'.

    In 2007, General Aufar Mahardi served as Governor from the mid-2007s commencement of the "New Order" through to 2012; he rehabilitated roads and bridges, make interconnection all over the city with IDGS BRT and MRT, encouraged the arts, built several hospitals, and a large number of new schools. He began control of migration to the city to stem overcrowding and poverty. Foreign investment contributed to a real estate boom which changed the face of the city.

    IDGS City recognized as one among six cities in Asia to feature and preserve several colonial architectural sites, while accompanying its' growth as a metropolitan city.

    Like New Jak, the surrounding cities of IDGS are served by IDGS MRT or commonly known as Commuterline, a commuter rail system which serves commuters both in and around IDGS City. The commuter system was started in 2007. IDGS MRT have 3 ground line and 8 underground line. The major rail stations are Gambir, Kota, Jatinegara, Manggarai, and Tanah Abang. During rush hours, the number of passengers greatly exceeds the system's capacity, and crowding is common.

    Also IDGS City have IDGS BRT service (known as Busway). IDGS BRT was developed in the context of development reforms (or reformasi) and used TransJakarta system as a model. IDGS City's first busway line, from Tanah Abang to Halim opened in April 2008 and as of 14 February 2016, 15 out of 18 corridors are in use. IDGS BRT has the world's second longest bus rapid transit routes (124 km in length) and has more than 490 buses in operation.

    [​IMG]

    In June 2013, IDGS City had only 10.5% green open space (Ruang Terbuka Hijau) and will be added to 13.94% public green open space. Public parks are included in public green open space. By 2030, the administration also hope there are 16% private green open space.

    [​IMG]
    Dukuh Atas Park​

    The new Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport (HPIA) which was opened to the public on July 25, 2009 is the latest landmark and pride to the people of IDGS City. The new airport is the second largest airport after Soekarno-Hatta International Airport with a 224,298 m2 (2,414,324 sq ft) passengers terminal and will eventually have a capacity of 50 million passengers and the first airport which has direct rail to city.

    Airport Train known as Airport Railink Services (ARS) connects the airport to city center. The train runs from Gambir Central Station beside the Monumen National (Monas) at Balai Kota Street every 2 hour at 4:00 a.m. to 08:00 p.m and from the airport at 5:25 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. It is the fastest way to reach the airport from the city, taking 10 minutes. The other way from the Airport to the city takes longer (30 to 40 minutes).

    [​IMG]
    Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport​

    I hope IDGS City is a strong contender for:
    • Best Parks and Plazas
    • Best realistic City
    • Best futuristic City
    • Best Vacation City
    • Best "Commercial" City
    • Best Looking Skyline
    • Best Looking Airport
    • Best Looking Rail Networks and Stations

    Thank You

    Welcome to Hazahaa Trost, a city located on a distant planet called Tohotam or Planet 159, at 90 km in Northwest Poroyana state's capital. Hazahaa Trost is the most important tourist city on the planet (the tourist town is not built yet), it was founded 317 years ago or 174 years after the invasion of the planet by the alien race Gzawon. The indigenous population was decimated and enslaved.
    I made something different this time, a futuristic and sci-fi city. I hope you will like it :)

    I think Hazahaa Trost is a conteder for
    • Best futuristic City
    • Best rural or farm region
    • Best "Industrial" City
    • Best RHM interchanges and highways

    Hello, everyone!
    This is my city Mārietana and I haven't changed my style. So, another city from me that looks eastern european. Maybe it could be competing under the category "Best realistic city", because it has many characteristics of eastern european, especially baltic cities:

    It has a compact city center
    1Marietana laht.jpg

    .. a simple skyline
    2Marietana sky.jpg

    .. an old town
    3Marietana pros.jpg

    4orig tönav1.jpg

    ... an industrial area
    5Marietana toostus.jpg

    ... and of course a district of soviet block houses
    6Marietana lasn sees.jpg

    7Marietana lasn.jpg

    This was Mārietana

    Thanks for watching and good luck to all participants :)

    Hi everyone!
    Let me introduce you to Inelète: cxl_screenshot_linelete_156.jpg

    Nowadays 800 000 living around the lagoon.
    Dynamic, highly densited, the city still offers many green places to chill out and avoid the activity of this aquatic hive!
    South part of the lagoon facing the sea has never been built up due to a strict and strong communal policy, classifying the site as protected since the early 1960´s.
    Inhabitants and tourists can then enjoy a nice and fine sandy beach if the rain doesn't show up!
    The proximity of the ocean and the quite open space between the two mains mounts surrounding the city allows the formation of heavy rainny clouds. Though the wind blowing from the south pushes all of them rather quickly, resulting in a sunny weather facilitating the growth of a luxuriant vegetation.
    This has been understood by the municipality, look at this magnificent botanical garden and its greenhouse for exotic butterflies on top of the little hill:
    cxl_screenshot_linelete_126.jpg

    On an historical point of view, the core of the city is located at the south part of the lagoon, protected from the sea by natural sand hills, waters from the main river and the rest of the plain evacuates through this narrow passage:
    cxl_screenshot_linelete_140.jpg

    This narrow passage is synonym of wealth for Linelète since it allowed commercial exchanges since the early beginning of the city. Protected from high tides and strong streams, the quite waters of the lagoon presented the perfect place to be for the first inhabitants of the region.
    The main architectural and urbanistic of the city core is using small islands separated by canals:
    cxl_screenshot_linelete_169.jpg

    There is no need to say that these features after providing wealth and a dynamic economy through the centuries to the harbour, are still highly appreciated by tourists nowadays.
    Ferrys, ocean liners, boats, yatchs, sailing boats, there are more of places to welcome all of those guests and goods!

    cxl_screenshot_linelete_83.jpg

    And for the loyals readers that held through the presentation, please have a look at the following pictures to capture the essence of this very astonishing port city:
    cxl_screenshot_linelete_198.jpg cxl_screenshot_linelete_146.jpg cxl_screenshot_linelete_128.jpg cxl_screenshot_linelete_178.jpg cxl_screenshot_linelete_193.jpg

    Thank your for reading!
    Many thanks to the whole community of moders, admins, participants, readers maintaining the game alive and enhancing the original experience of this great game I spend so much time playing with :)
    Good luck to everyone!

    Hello everyone,
    This is my city named Saint George.
    The best that the city can brag is with it's infrastructure and it's skyscrapers. There was a plan for finishing the city and a big and very busy port but the mayor had other matters to attend to.

    City competes for best skyline, RHM interchanges and parks.

    Here are some pictures about the city's skyline:

    Well then... this is my city of Haagendam, a Dutch-styled city of 2.1M inhabitants. The historic center was inspired by Amsterdam with all its lovely canals. Other places that served as models are Scheveningen, Alkmaar and Gorinchem...

    With these pics it might be a contender for historic, port, airport, farming, holiday, erm and other... :D

    Alba International Airport - AIA

    Hey guys,

    Since I have a clear idea for the city on The Inlet map, though don't have all the buildings necessary yet, I managed to only build and airport with a logistics park and a neighboring town.

    I tried to go for something out of the box, something modern and visually appealing. I hope my submission can be considered in the Best Airport category, although I yet have to build a real city to it.

    Good luck, guys!

    Alba International Airport - AIA
    [​IMG]


    Overview of Alba International Airport
    [​IMG]

    Main Terminal with two concourses
    [​IMG]

    Alba Int'l is serviced by highway, high-speed trains (connection to the Old Town and the rest of the country) and monorail (connection to the modern part of the city). The stations are integrated directly to the Main Terminal
    [​IMG]

    Private Terminal and Heliport
    [​IMG]

    AILP - Alba International Logistics Park
    [​IMG]

    Neighboring town - although the construction of AIA brought employment to the citizens, the negative effects like noise and traffic have citizens worried about the town's preservation. Moreover, the construction of a second runway is off the table due to their strong resistance.

    The Japan Ministry of Tourism presents
    N A G A O K A K Y Ō
    City of Champions

    From its origins as a poor fishing village, to being at the height of power during the second World War, Nagaokakyo has yet again remodeled itself from its warmongering past as the only Nazi Germany controlled city in Japan into becoming one of the World's Most Liveable Cities of 2016. Nestled on the East Coast of Japan's Honshu Island, Nagaokakyo now serves as one of the country's most significant financial and trading hubs. Much of the buildings once governed by the German Reich are now museums, with the exception of the French styled Tenji Palace and Adolf Hitler's private residence in Hatsu, which were handed over to the throne in 1947.

    THE SLEEPING DEMON
    From the Amagi Brilliant Amusement Park down the coastline to the Nagaokakyo Convention Center, the city's geography shapes into a face of a female demon, which according to local folklore was of a vicious female oni that attacked and later killed by local settlers. Her body shaped the land in which modern Nagaokakyo stands on today.

    Hi, this is my entry for the Inlet competition. I named it Bosphorus. I did actually write a brief history for the city but after some thoughts I decided to not include it, 'cause I think that would better fit a CJ.

    I'm going to to break my entry into two parts, the first spoiler contains pictures which were moderately photoshopped. Due to the rendering inabilities of Cities XXL, I feel the need to use some extra help from PS just to show you the way I see. I'd somehow receive opinions on how ps ruined city simulators, and that I should refrain from using it, so the pictures in the second spoiler are of minimum to no editing. Anyway, I congratulate you all for your participation, and BIG kudos to every modder. Have a nice day.
