  2. I have increased our donation amount due to a price increase from the hosting company. It happened last year but I've been covering it so far..... Also PayPal is charging more so I still end up covering extra amounts due to the exchange rate fees. I paid a lot more this month due to the mad exchange rate.
    The Ad revenue has been slow but traffic is picking up as everyone is home.
    I know times are tough for some right now due to this dam virus but every spare dollar helps.
    Hope you all are keeping safe

    Tlaxahuitl is the capital of Tlaxahuitlec Empire which was a great meso-american civilization before Azcapotzalco and then Aztec Triple Alliance take the domination of the region. You can see the city as it was in 1290 AD, during the golden age of the Empire. Located on Huatlatepec Lake, the city was a great religious, commercial, political and military centre. At this time, the population is around 90000 inhabitants.


    City centre with temples, palaces, ball court, markets and slave markets :

    We can see some chinampas around the city:

    On the left, view of the barracks located at the entrance of the city :

    Countryside and smaller towns next Tlaxahuitl :

    These old temples on the right were not built by Tlaxahuitlec, it was actually the centre of an old city built a long time ago. Now, a village grew up next the temples and villagers reuse it :


    Stone quarry :

    Neyatlazaxa is new city under construction :

    Huatlatepec is a vassal city-state of Tlaxahuitl:

    The categories I hope to win with my city :
    - Best "Historical" City
    - Best rural or farm region
    - Best "Green" City
    - Best realistic City

    Thank you, and good luck :)

    Paleto Bay

    Originally it was supposed to be a "little planet" with three cities. A european (the biggest one), north american one and a latin american one.
    So far i only startet the european and the latin american... The bay between these cities is called "Paleto Bay" (from GTA V).

    Santiago de Paleto
