    Gonaives-戈纳伊夫 Map, City Building Contest -- Summer 2015

    City Building will take place between June - August 2015. City Builders may submit up to 10 photos by September 1, 2015, for judging. Winners will be announced September 30, 2015. Winners will be awarded special "banners" that will be displayed under their avatar on XLNation.

    The Rules:
    1. Your City must be built on the Gonaives[戈纳伊夫] map
    2. Build any type of city you like.
    3. No restrictions on patches or mods
    4. Submit up to 10 Photos in an official posting by September 1, 2015, in the designated forum thread.
    The Spirit of Community

    Share your work as you progress in the building period. Encourage each other. Bystanders can cheer on their favorites. Remember, this is a game and we are supposed to have FUN. This contest is not about the biggest city but the best in various categories. I am still working out if the community will vote on winners or a judging panel will be appointed.

    Cities will be considered for the following Awards
    Win, Place, Show (Voted by the Community) -- Unique Medal and 15/10/5 Trophy Points

    Category Winners will get a Unique Medal and 10 Trophy Points, These will be awarded by a judging panel. (Most likely I will get non City Building persons to pick winners from the submitted entries).
    • Best rural or farm region
    • Best "Green" City
    • Best "Industrial" City
    • Best RHM interchanges and highways
    • Best Parks and Plazas
    • Best realistic City
    • Best futuristic City
    • Best Vacation City
    • Best "Historical" City
    • Best "Commercial" City
    • Best Looking Skyline
    • Best Looking Harbor

    Great! I've been looking forward to a new contest too. I plan to use XXL for this one.

    In all fairness, however (IMO), in order to make XL and XXL completely compatable, a few mods for XXL need to be added, updated, and/or repaired.
    Esp the RHM/RHM addon & the Modular Airport Pack.

    At the same time, I would like to say... Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into these great mods and maps. These games would not be the same without them.

    I have ended up using CXL 2012 for this comp. I made a start in XXL but there is still a lot of mods missing that unfortunity may not become available for XXL. I use a lot from the french CXL site and some from the chinese one. They are pretty old mods and the authors most likely are not around any more to update them.
    Hopefully my city will still look good without the wicked skies of XXL.

    The game crashes and I get the following error message when I open the Gonaives [戈纳伊夫] map in XXL:

    [18:44:25] CORE mcFile.cpp ( 198) Error can't open file live/offline/solo/SoloSaveRegion8Map76/auto/Save.Commands.xml

    ^ odd I just loaded the map and played it for over an hour or two no problems.

    Btw guys zoom out and delete all the trees in the ocean - not sure if it helps free up gpu/cpu resources or not.

    Thanks, Nicko. Reloading the map doesn't help. Since it looks to be a game problem then, not a problem with the map, I'll move my question over to the tech thread.

    This was map was picked for a few reasons:

    1. Lots of flat areas to build
    2. Room to create an airport, RHM, and harbor
    3. Room to create a nice waterfront
    4. Room to create just about anything :)
