@Dragon in U70: Scene08 center right

U71: Roadtrip to Shuijing wan

Welcome to the seventyfirst update of my CJ Dragon Islands,

Today we're going to go by car..... Exploring the mainroad from Shì Zhenzu Wan to Shuijing wan(Crystal Bay) which came to DI by a border extension to the north. A 25 kilometer trip through already known but also many unknown places of DI.

General info about DI's road system:


Just some info about DI's roads:

Road numbers are given by region, for example the Dragon isle 2,2X,2XX etc. or the region of Zhenzu wan 5,5X,5XX etc. The route we will follow today is B5
The roadsystem is given med priority only, raillines are more important than a continuous traffic flow on the roads which leads to a very high number of level railroad crossings (Only A and B roads get over/underpasses) At Cities with light rail systems, trams are mostly given priority to road traffic as well which often leads to a pretty jammy innercity traffic during rush hour.
DI's Gas prices are high, they usually range between 50-57DyU per litre (1€ is about 35,7DyU= €1,40 to €1,60/litre) The high rate of rail usage can be explaines by looking at the fares, massiveley lowered by DI's government paying a lot for frequent and cheap rail services. A Single Ticket from Zhenzu Wan(Nan zhan sta) to Fenghuang(central) for example costs 60 DyU(1,68€), 2nd class DINorthern regional. The purcase of an annual ticket will lower the cost (when travelling 2 times each workday) to about 26 DyU(72€cent).
The quality of DI's road surfaces can be described as pretty normal, A and B roads will usually have a much better surface quality than C or D roads. Take always care about your speed, the few places with a lowered speed limit are often pretty dangerous. The road at scene 11 for example has it's speed limited to 70kph, pretty fast for that curve. So don't blindly trust the speed limit and drive only fast as long as the road is straight and the surface good.



Roadtype/Description/Limit City/Limit overland

Category A (Motorway)/4 or more lanes, crash barrier, hard shoulder,no level RR crossings or R intersections/X/160kph or lower
Category B (State route)/2,3,4 lanes, no Crash barrier, sometimes hard shoulder, mostly no level RR crossings, usually level R intersections/50kph/140kph or lower
Category C (Local important rd.)/2 lanes, no hard shoulder, nearly always level RR crossings/50kph/100kph or lower
Category D (other)/normal side rd/50kph or lower/100kph or lower


Okay, that's enough facts xD

Enjoy the roadtrip (taken on a Sunday, of course)


















I hope you've liked this update, greetings, Skimbo =)

U77: Fenghuang GC


Heya and welcome to the seventyseventh update of my CJ Dragon Islands....

Today we're going to have a look at the (in DI pretty famous) Fenghuang GC, unless it's name it's (luckily) located at Gu Miaò. (Fenghuang is a neighbouring city and I'm rebuilding it in the moment because I lost it)

You might notice very different cinds of coast design, depending on the 'evolution step' in which they where buildt.






Fore!

@mayorm: Thankya! But I actually did not show much of the old version, just two stations and third pic. anyway, enjoy the new version!



@Drago in U78: last pic left hand side.


U79:Fenghuang - Ying Chào


Heya and welcome to the seventyninth update of my CJ Dragon Islands....


Now that we've reached Fenghuang Shì I'm goig to show you some impressions of Ying Chào district. This area is located on an half island, sourrounded by cliffs on the district's north, west and southside. The most expansive part of the city might also be the most 'crazy' when it comes to citybuilding.... but the citizens got their own opinion about building highrises right on the edge of a cliff.....

But why did they get the idea about settling at such a place? Well the legend tells, as usual for DI, about a dragon who founded it.... But the reason might also be the pretty good position for a castle. When standing on a highrise's roof today (or on the edge of the cliffs in earlier time) you've got a great view of all the area around you. Gu miao to the east, Shì Haiwan to the northeast, Yuki and Shì Yan to the north, Liu shi to the northwest, Chóng de and Dazhu to the west, Shì Luna to the southwest and Huo Dao to the south......


The city currently has 'only' about 300.000 inhabitants, nevertheless a CBD like a big city. Many commuters use the HSR coming from Shì Yan, the DINorthern and Fenghuang Rail commuter services towards the city coming from places like Zhenzu wan, Shuijing wan and even up to Nan Shì. Of course there is also a motorway leading towards thoose many palces but parking in the city center is very expansive, P+R does only randomly exist.















I hope you've liked this update, greetings, DragonSkimbo.
