    Time to enter the Edzo challenge now that you have some unexpected freetime ;)
    And don't say you don't like the map, because everyone else loves it, so that would be a cheap excuse :p

    Edzo map looks fantastic! Nice work by skullz one more time! But first i wanna try to complete at least Osatos' main city, especially that empty area in the middle and on the right.That ANNOYS me and i can't leave this city behind in that intolerable condition. Well, just today i was able to load it on low settings. It causes eyepain, but at least it works...

    Osato should intentionally look like a concrete, dense metropolis that has risen fastly during the last decades due to an industrial boom. Living space is tight and expensive. Such dense cities like this are imo Seoul, Tokio or several american cities. I actually planned to add some bigger green recreation areas somewhere more outside. Forests, Camping grounds and greeneries alond the shore of the lake for example. Unfortunately this won't happen, the city can't get finished. I think, maybe you are rather a fan of my cities Porto Nuevo or South Point. If you wanna take a look, click the link below in my signature. Thanks for the comment! :)

    Could you tell me where to find the maritime terminal building, and that part used in the main rail station?
    I cannot find it anywhere!

    Thanks @kipate for helping @fanattiq. I thought @fanattiq was just wondering ("anxious") about the use of those airport terminal buildings by fayeddd. lol :)

    Yes, that's!! In a few days, I hope to post the city where I used it, but not inthe airport... Hope my next City Journal were better than my previous ones.

    Unfortunatelly for me, this will be postponed without date. I have an error for which I cannot play any more. I have search it in forums, and seems to be a graphic cad question... I have tried everything yet. I resign. The bigger is the city the fastest the error happens.

    Hey Inan, finally time to review your new masterpiece :) :sneaky:

    So, let's start with the things I dislike:
    - as already mentioned, I am not a fan of these short ramps for the highway exits and interchanges; that simply does not look realisitic. Also, the ramps do look a bit edgy to me, a bit carelessly placed, at least that's the impression I got.

    - these megastructures feel a bit out of place, to be honest. I am not sure how a city can afford the maintaining costs for a cruise terminal that has such a size; even the busiest cruise terminals do not have a passenger number comparable to large airports, and I can't imagine this to be different in a somewhat fictional world ;)

    - I am not so sure about the monorail running through all the residential districts of the city, I would have wished for a better separation there.

    But there is a lot that I like, that I really love about the city:
    - those parks look superb! Splendid idea to use the steel arch to create pedestrian bridges in the park (y) Also, the Wiseman Park surely offers a nice walk and some nice sights, it must be crowded at the weekends :)

    - you really mastered building esplanades along the coast; all the hotspots there will never make it boring to take a walk there!

    - the skyline is dense, but it looks just great! Wise combination of skyscrapers, they blend well together (y)

    - all the custom-made buildings make it look like there is no repetition, it must have taken a while to build these, I guess? Anyways, it's looking lovely :)

    - the harbour complex looks overly realistic, one of my favourites and I would say it is even better than your previous harbours (maybe at ties with the one in New Hastings) :p

    Thank you for the detailed review. At least a few amount of users are looking at CJs and leave some words...
    Maybe some of the ramps are a bit steep, but all in all they are long and smooth. I have to admit though, the game annoyed me with the terrain regarding highway ramps.

    For a city of that density the number of megastructures is adequate. The Tokio Tower has been replaced by the Shanghai Pearle meanwhile. It can be seen on some of the newer pics. The cruise terminal looks a bit too large at that location, i wish i was able to move it somewhere else. But i think regarding the size, we have also to consider other usages of the building: terminal, shopping center, malls, restaurants, event location, congresses, fairs, and other events like that.

    I don't know if in reality monorails and elevated trains are running through residential areas. I think they do, so i did not take care about that. But i agree... i prefer residential areas to live in without noisy stuff close to them :)

    Thanks for the praise for the parks. My personal favourite is the Red Fountain park, it was hard to create and took a long time. Wiseman Park should be bigger, but it is ok. Usually i planned a huge green recreation area with camping zones at the lake, but unfortunately i can't finish the city.

    I especially like the idea with that fountain as promenade :D Thanks.

    Yeah, the skyline turned out great, i am a bit proud :rolleyes: This is the most Tokio-like area in Osato.

    The Marina and the opera house took the most time, but it was worth it. :)
