1 Cheeseguy's DD of Cheezylvania on 2011-01-12, 18:46

Welcome to Cheezylvania!
This DD will take you on a trip through time, starting with the humble begginings of nothing but farms and ruralty, to the hustle-bustle of a sprawling metropolis. Below are a few facts about Cheezylvania. T

Name (Longest Form): The Free States of Cheezylvania
Name: (Shortest Form): Cheezylvania
Capital City: New Cheezolina
Government: Parliamentary Monarchy
Religion: N/A
Language: 90% English, 10% French and Spanish


To start, I will be showing pictures of Cheezylvania's first and only city so far, New Cheezolina. (sorry for PNGs, forgot to convert them and don't want to have to go back and do it again:p)

One of Cheezylvania's farms. Also some crafty touches have been added ;D

This is all the govt. buildings in one. It includes a small courtroom, an office and living quarters for the Prime minister, as well as a few other necessary places required for the proper functioning of the young govt.

The west living district. There are 2 districts for living and each one is about that size. Literally.

New Cheezolina from a snapshot from a plane. I should say the entire nation from a plane.

-CG93 Very Happy

Wow. These are some really nice cities. I love your visual style with them.

Please resize those images, though. Mayorm requires that moderators ask users that have posted images over the size limit to resize them. I don't mean to be overly strict, but Mayorm requires that moderators require that oversized images be resized.

Of course, sorry. With my big monitor when I take an SC4 pic it makes it huge. I'll do that when I can

Update 2-The Desert
Cheezylvania is a beautiful nation sculpted by varying terrain. From mountains to plains to meadows, Cheezylvania has it all. And today, we will take a tour of a very dry and arid area of Cheezylvania called the Gateway. It is called such due to it's large rivers flowing everywhere, despite the desert conditions. It is also some to some unusual flora, such as willow trees, chestnuts, and other trees that make a very unusual and beautiful desert. We will start by going to the town of Brownswood. Brownswood is a very small town of 30 residents.

This is a close up picture of the trees and flora behind a small shop in Brownswood.

This shot is my favorite so far. A dirty little river surrounded by a bunch of cacti, rocks, and desert flora

An old wagon traveling up a hill

The beggining of a small forest, which leads to a fresh oasis in the middle of the scorching hot desert


The rest of this update is exclusive to Simmania

I think that you could do with more trees but it looks like you have detail oriented forests and I think that your rural roads are too straight or too curvy one... I go back to my hometown, either you had reallly really twisty roads, those were to the east and north, or you had STRAIGHT roads to the west... I was lucky to live in what can best be described as a rural metropolis, 300,000 with a small town feel. Huntsville Alabama and Madison Alabama. Either aim for Blackhead Parkway or Greenbriar Road. Search either of them. thats my only criticism.

Cheezylvania has varying terrain. Some of it is forest, desert, tropical, and other types of terrain. A lot of regions have only one sort of terrain, while this one is geographical everything. Why? Because I enjoy working with towns in various conditions.

Today I will show Pineland, a halfway abandoned coal mining town


Lake pineland on a small hill that overlooks Pineland city

At it's peak, this huge metropolis held 13 people

These old wooden coal mines

Update 5: Garrett, A Homage to Islington
First, I know I didn't show Islington, but I screwed it up somehow and am in the process of fixing it. Garrett is a small western style town, in the middle of absolute nowhere. Forests and mountains surround this small town. It currently holds 1,200 souls.




This is a housing district outside of the historic part of town.



A historic downtown
That's all for this update. Comments questions etc, post away

It's interesting to see some "larger" towns show up. Large cuz the other ones were more like tiny villages.

Nice work. Very Happy

Great little town. I'd like to see more of it some time Smile

Also in the first pic, that street seems a little busy so maybe an upgrade to a road is in order Wink

I understand you are trying to offer advice, but needless to say it would be nice if you could find a constructive way to offer advice Neutral

Cheeseguy: There's nothing wrong with your towns. Some CJs feature big cities, others small towns, and some a little bit of both. It just depends on the particular viewer's taste how he/she likes the selection. It's kind of like a heavy metal music artist wouldn't like a jazz artist's music, and vise versa. It just depends on people's tastes, and I personally like your cities.
Don't get discouraged at the bad comments. My CJs have gotten plenty of it.
