Next update!

Today's Halloween special!

It's the myth of Karkcity's mansion in front of the CBD.
Enjoy!


About 150 years ago, a lovely and spacious mansion was built in a small woodland near Karkcity. The owner loved the house and never let anyone near it. 100 years later, the house was still in the family's posession. The house was one of the most important things to them.
They didn't want anything to happen to it or it's surroundings.


Then, one cold night, some developers walked down the driveway.
They needed permission to build a new business area around the mansion. The owner declined, saying nothing was to ever happen to the house.
Years later, the owner moved to live with family elsewhere, and the house was left empty.
The developers saw this as their chance, and construction started; against the previous owner's wish.







Twenty years later, the construction was complete.













However, the house was in a state of disrepair. It was said to be haunted with several ghosts from the house's past. It was a place to avoid.

Once the area was completed and the businesses moved in, lots of strange incidents occurred around it including crashes and strange noises.

The house looked like this:








The house was a place to avoid. No one has gone near it or even looked at it to this day.

very nice CBD you have there, and I like how you found a way to incorporate the PEG seasonal house into the update. As for the house, except for the green fog it doesn't seem so strange No then again I'm not scared easily Cool

I often think that looking at many DD's is just a waste of time, however, this was one I definitely think was worth looking at. Smile

I LOVE your transportation systems, your urban development, your RHWs, the general layout and style of your city, and so on. Nice work. Very Happy

Today's update features Grand Bridge again. It has 3 pictures and a mega mosaic.


A train passes the CBD.


Construction in the bottom right.


The railway line nears the station.


That's all for the pictures, I'm afraid. But, now... behold.. the mosaic! It's a massive 3MB JPEG, and it may take a while to load, but don't give up!

hmmm very nice railroad there. My only suggestion/ comment is that a rail line that runs into any CBD is probably two tracks if it has commuter trains Smile

@ blakesterville: Wow! Thanks a lot!
@ mayorm: Thanks! Yeah, I see what you mean. The rail line there was built before I decided to build the CBD there. I'll upgrade it soon.

Today's update! These are some older pictures from Part Two of the roadtrip from West Vorland to Hapton Central.


The highway follows the rail line for a while.


Then, the railway enters a tunnel.


Further along, there is more room for the highway and it turns into a RHW-4.


Then there is a junction to the city of Sorton. We'll turn off here to look around.


The station.


We then turn left at the main crossroads.


The commercial district. It's nowhere near finished...


An overview.


We then rejoin the highway and continue Eastbound.


The next junction along is to the suburbs of the city.


There is a windfarm near the suburbs.


The highway then bypasses the suburbs.

Thanks for looking!

Today's update... part THREE of the roadtrip!


The highway continues in a straight line.


A smaller road joins the Highway 6. This is seen crossing the railway.


The highway spits at the foot of a large mountain.


It then follows a railway viaduct.


The railway emerges from a tunnel and is then carried on another viaduct.


The highway then continues in a large cutting.

And to finish off.. a region view of Vorland!




Thanks for looking,

I love how the highway, and railroad intertwine along the route. As for that commercial center, I would add streets, and take out some of the ped malls. But still a very nice update Very Happy

@ blakesterville: Thank you! Smile

Today's update is the SimWorld Christmas Special!

Well.. it's that time of year again. Christmas.
Things have been getting rather chilly recently. Here are some main headlines from across SimWorld.


New New York News
Snow has been causing havoc in New New York as freak storms hit by surprise.

Adeland National News
All settlements in the country have been affected by freezing temperatures as they fall into the -20ÂșC region.

The Karkland Times
Snow postpones major football clash between Karkcity and Eylton United as 12 Inches Fall.

Lorshire Leader
Roads across the country are clogged with travellers as the Christmas Holiday period arrives.

Vorland National Newspaper
Major travel disruption caused by non-stop blizzards across the region.


So.. the very short and pictureless Christmas update has come to an end.

Or has it..?

This was a picture taken from a news chopper reporting on the travel disruption in Vorland.. Is that really Santa and the reindeer?


Always Believe...

That's it from this update.. sorry it's short! This is all I had time for..

Sam =)

I love that video you made. I can see the progress you've made with this DD. Very Happy Also very nice stadium, I would however maybe build some commercial areas like resturants and small shops which would make a realistic, stadium shoping area.

@ mayorm: Thanks for looking! I'll definitely add some more development around the stadium. Thanks for your suggestion! Very Happy

At long last.. it's time for the fourth and final instalment in the West Vorland to Hapton Central Roadtrip!


The highway curves with the high embankments on either side.


The highway continues weaving it's way through the countryside.


The highway goes through a tunnel under the logging forest.


The other side of the tunnel, the highway continues through a lush forest.


The highway comes from the north of the picture and then continues west. The east highway continues to the valleys by the river. As you can see, I haven't got round to adding trees or eye-candy yet.


A closer picture.


A not-so-clear picture of how the main highway has the right of way. Coming from the right, it curves to the top and the south-northbound carriageway loses one lane.


A closer picture of how the main highway has the right of way.


The highway continues and converts to a 6-lane highway before crossing this bridge over one of the gorges.


Here is another gorge.


There is another intersection. We'll turn off here to have a look.


It is an intersection to the unfinished airport.


The terminal at night.


Continuing, there is a cloverleaf. We'll keep on going in a straight line


The third and final gorge.


The highway continues over a smaller local highway.


We are now in Hapton Central. The highway narrows down to a 4 lane highway, and junctions get tighter.


And to finish off the roadtrip, here is a strange junction I made.
