Welcome to Duwamish

Welcome to your guided tour of Duwamish, nicknamed the Green Republic. Thank you for landing at Dawson Municipal Airport, currently the only airport in Duwamish, that is until Project Airway is completed later this year. As you can see, the facilities are not quite modern and we are in need of relief.



Here's a little map of Duwamish and a satillite view...d'oh!



Let's take a tour of Dawson, the national capital. Here you see the 90,000-seat Dawson Stadium, constructed for the local DSL club. The DSL, or Duwamish Soccer League, is a league of 10 soccer teams around Duwamish.



Here's some of the more suburban areas of Duwamish, full of medium-sized homes and the rare mansion.



Let's cross over D3 (the local freeway) and head on over into Downtown. You can also see the local rail station that's sunken.



Tada! A big skyscraper forest, second only to Kalama on the coast!



Here's the Duwamish Capitol Building, housing the 64-member Senate and Supreme Court.



The President of Duwamish, Bruce Martin, lives and works here at the James Estate.



Next time, we'll explore the west coast!

Before we move on to the west coast...let's say one last goodbye to Dawson with a little tour...

Here's the University of Dawson main quad



Just east of the quad



The quad at night



The UD Arena at night, which the university uses for basketball and hockey and two professional sports teams also use.



A last look at Downtown Dawson at night



Here's the bridge leading into the largest city in Duwamish...

Well, we've finally arrived in the Big Peninsula: Kalama. Let's take a tour of the city's sports stadiums, because landmarks are sooooo overated.



Here's the University of Kalama, essentially a rival of the University of Dawson.



A little southeast of the university sits the 80,000-seat Kalama Stadium, which serves soccer and American football.



The university has its own stadium, the Koalas Stadium. The University's sports teams are named the Koalas.



The Kalama Pumas play at the newer Pumas Ballpark, just east of Koalas Stadium. It has a wonderful view of the Kalama Bridge.



North of Pumas Ballpark is the indoor Koalas Arena, also used by the University of Kalama.



Time for some night shots! Let's start with Kalama Stadium...



Now, Koalas Stadium at night...



Unfortunately, I couldn't get the Ballpark and Arena at night, so here's a postcard!

The Simlympic Torch Relay has officially started! The torch has been lit, now it must endure a world-wide trip to Chihiro, Petrova. The Kalama City Hall displays the big torch moments before the lightning.



Crowds gather by Kalama Stadium to watch the torch pass by.



Dorm dwellers come out of their homes to watch the torch go through their university.



The crowds now stop as the torch leaves Kalama, over the Duwamish River.



Its arrived in Dawson! University of Dawson students come out in large numbers to welcome the relay!



Passing the Mall Canals, the crowds become larger and larger...



President Bruce Martin has joined in! The crowd cheers!



Looks like the relay train is a bit late...



Fast forward a bit...now we're crossing the Skagit River!



The good people of Tulalip greet the torch! Its almost over!



Main Street is over-run with crowds! Almost to the end!



The 747 taking the torch to Shushtrepistaz has arrived!



The plane has crossed over into Illu'a! Fireworks go off in Dawson!

Welcome to beautiful Goodwin, Duwamish, the industrial center of the Olympic Peninsula and is the place of residence for more than 90,000. Home to Goodwin Steel and Good Motors, they lead the world in green industries, such as electric plug-in cars and recycling used iron in steelworks.



Let's take a tour and begin at Goodwin City Hall, built in 1911 when Olympic Steelworks moved from Port Angeles, Lower Columbia to the once sleepy town.



Across Main Street is the heart of downtown, home to mom and pop stores of all sorts.



Again across Main Street is Edward Goodwin High School, named after the town's founder in 1965, gradually adding on a gym, library and more classrooms. Next to the high school, is GGE (Goodwin General Electric) Park, home to the Goodwin Gorillas FC and several sports.



Just north of GGE Park is a small tavern district, which takes influence from British architecture.



Next to the drunken men, including your dad Wink, is the Goodwin Church of God, one of four Christian churches in the country. It also houses a small cemetery, which only buries important figures from town history.



Nearby the church and taverns is Goodwin Technical College, which has taught new industries to young minds since 1998.



A new park next to the college contains a tennis court where many residents come to relax.



Across the street from the college is Krispy Kreme's first store in the country, opened in 1999.



North of downtown is an experimental "SkyFarm" that also doubles as an apple orchard.



Even further north is an industrial district, this area specifically used by Good Motors Company for manufacturing.



Goodwin Steel and other companies are located west, perfectly in line with winds so any smoke carries out to the ocean and far north towards Alaska.



West of downtown are the suburbs where everyone lives. They all enjoy the several elementary and middle schools nearby as well.



The Edward Goodwin Memorial Bridge connects Goodwin to Dawson over the Duwamish River.



The newest addition to the city is the 28,000-capacity GSArena that opened on October 16th.

I only updated so fast because this was version 1.0 of Duwamish. I'm relaunching it in June(ish) and it'll be better.

Thanks for the comments mayorm, also the airport was replaced with a CC one (see torch relay update).

Very Happy Well I don't think this would be classified as a vanilla DD. There is not a trace of original content in any of your pictures. Although that is one large stadium for a high school. I suggest using maybe a stadium that has a smaller sseating capacity like SCBa's Taylor Memorial Field which I believe is available at the stex

The large stadium in Goodwin was built for the whole city, not just the HS. It hosts a top-flight team from the highest level of soccer in the country.
