It's Teaser Time!

As I begin to prepare the December 2012 Census for publication I have for you more teasers! I wanted a full update, but with all the work that goes into the census a teaser is what I wound up with instead. But trust me, it's worth it. Smile So today we are in an unknown location of the region, looking at something that has risen due to the new planning guidelines set out by BoldNewHD. Let's have a looksee at what could possibly going on...


Teaser 1: Believe it or not, we're in the middle of an industrial park. This man made pond was one of the requirements set out by BoldNewHD, that within industrial developments should be beautification. While some don't understand it, others appreciate the fact that some land in the industry-designated zones is occupied by nature.






Teaser 2: With the massive influx of jobs thanks to a rapidly expanding industrial sector comes an increase in residents. Here we see a brand new neighbourhood with brand new houses, brand new Jr. and Sr. high schools and brand new communications towers... the theme really here is "new, new, new." That theme is playing out across the region, which you will soon see in the census.





Stay tuned for the December 2012 Census results... the region has had another quarter of stellar growth.

Well, this is a little embarrassing I originally intended to be publishing the census right now, but I suppose I was a little scatterbrained yesterday. To make a long story short, I'm away from my computer that has SC4 on it this weekend, so I grabbed all the pictures and stats needed for the census update prep and publication and put them on a USB. Of course, I forgot to bring that USB stick with me. So... the census update has had to be delayed to January 15. Hopefully I actually get it up. So, enjoy this pretty image advertising the delayed census.

Any guesses to which city this is? First correct guess (across all 5 versions) may just get a cool prize. Maybe. Razz




To make up for the delay, I'm finally doing applies. Razz


mayorm
Thanks, it's only just beginning to boom - it should be fun to explore with updates! Smile

Republicmaster
They do, more midrises will be developed to blend them into a little more. Smile

thomas
Wait and you shall see. Though you've probably seen by now. Razz

K50
That might possibly be the case... but would that be so bad? Razz

111222333444
Yes, yes I am. The story clarifies that development was to occur there, didn't, and is now scheduled to go on again. Plame changing governments. Razz

cheeseguy
Thanks, glad you think so!

111222333444
Glad you think so, numbers!

mayorm
Thanks! A lot of work has gone into this project, so I'm glad you like the plan so far. I hope you like some of the upcoming projects... the region will definitely go through giant changes!

Republicmaster
Lots of work has gone in so far, with a lot more to come. But I'm excited! Very Happy

mayorm
Glad you like it - hope you enjoyed today's teaser as well!

Blake
Thanks! Smile

[cheeseguy/b]
Thanks Smile

You bet! The steamrollers from the steamroller factory may just steamroll the fridge factory. Razz

thomas
Thanks, I'm experimenting with colour changes for the photos to capture the feel the cities would in RL. The colours of the game sometimes seem washed-out to me.

Thanks, glad you think so!

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER 2012 CENSUS IN HD!

The moment is finally here! After several delays (unintentional and intentional) the December 2012 Census in HD is here! Although yes, it is January, this is the December census as this alligns with the census schedule. A census will be done quarterly (every 3 months) - meaning they occur at the end of March, June, September and December. 2012's December census was delayed in part because of OSITM and in part because of RL and forgetting a USB stick on my part. But enough blabbering about what the census is, and more info about this quarter's census.

Q4 in Holt District was a quarter of significant growth. If you thought the last census showed significant growth, be prepared to be astonished this time! Thanks to relaxed planning regulations, super high demand and other various factors (including BOLDNEWHD) growth has taken off in Holt District. A condo boom continues through many of the major cities in the region, and sprawl is making inroads in the western portion of the region. Holt District is becoming a leading region in Orchidsen (the province it resides in) and could soon be considered a world-class place to live and work. While residential growth has been astounding, so had the increase in the number of jobs. The commercial sector continues to dominate commerce in the region, however industrial sector is picking up steam thanks to new designated industrial development areas throughout the region. Of course with massive growth comes some people who are unhappy, the "traditionalists" so to speak - those who want development to stop. But they are few and far between. As the region continues to boom there are still no signs of a bubble - supply is still well-below demand, jobs are keeping up and although prices are continuing to rise, they are not rising at a worrying pace.

So let's go on and take a look at population figures and something many may be waiting for - an updated region view. Note that unlike the last census update, this update does not have a "major development" section - there are so many that instead regular updates will continue to show off new developments. Smile






We begin with the overall region population. Holt District's growth has been astonishing this quarter thanks to a region-wide construction boom. How astonishing was growth? Just scroll down... the number may surprise you. Remember, last census period the population was below 485 000...



As you can see, these new projects have really driven growth. And also take note: this data is real-time quarters. As in from Seember 29, 2012 to data retrieval day. Not SimCity time.



The first of the municipalities brings us to The City of Sherkston:



The ongoing condo boom in the city continued, fuelled by the influx of jobs to the city.



Next we arrive in the City of Manatee which has experienced its own boom along with Sherkston...



Jobs growth, along with residents choosing to live in quieter Manatee over Sherkston fuelled a 30% population gain.



We arrive in the first of Holt District's towns, heading north to The Town of Dofino. Dofino was the biggest %gainer this census period.



It's proximity to Sherkston and low land costs fuelled an over 300% swell in population.



Next we find us in Shorecoast. Shorecoast was the slowest grower this quarter.



Waterfront development was focused in Midport, which meant slower growth in Shorecoast this census period.



We move west to the Town of Kuhan, formerly The Township of Northwest Holt.



Suburban sprawl continue this census period, lifting Kuhan to one of the largest municipalities in the region.



This picture should look fammilar. Nobody correctly guessed this as Norecount, Manatee's southern neighbour.



Industrial expansion in the town, along with increased jobs available in Manatee, fuelled growth in this once sleepy town.



After being the only municipality with a population decrease last census period, Midport is now booming.



Waterfront development has lifted Midport's population, almost doubling it in the most recent quarter.



The Township of Saltfield continues to boom, and will soon be reincorporated as a town...



Suburban sprawl and suburban condominiums have lifted Saltfield's population. Industrial development is also on the rise.



We arrive now to Old Port, our last community to look at.



Old Port's population was lifted by the ongoing expansion of the large planned community in the town.



For reference, here is the population data as you would have seen it during the Seember 2012 Census:


Holt District (Entire Region): 483 539
Sherkston: 151 690
Manatee: 119 330
Shorecoast: 74 783
Midport: 33 103
Norecount: 18 044
Dofino: 26 824
Old Port: 17 331
Northwest Holt (Now Kuhan): 20 565
Saltfield: 21 869
Just a bit different, eh?


And that does it for population figures! As you can see, this has been another stellar quarter of growth in Holt District!




REGION VIEW TIME!

This first region view is the current look of the region, as of the collection of data. The region has significantly filled in and as you will notice, we've yet to see alot of what has developed. Development in the west has taken off, as has it in the north (Dofino). Also note the increased density of Sherkston's CBD.





For reference, here is Holt District's region view at the time of the last census (in late Seember) - a very big difference.





AND THAT DOES IT FOR THE DECEMBER 2012 CENSUS IN HD!
Thanks to everyone for your patience in its delay. I hope you enjoyed it, and enjoyed a little more detail into what the population is doing in Holt District! Be on the lookout for the next census, which is scheduled to happen at the end of March! Will it be another quarter of stellar growth? Stay tuned...




CoastRunner
Sorry - none of the above! Razz






Note: If you see "pt" missing from words, I just ran notepad to remove all "pt" from the bbcode, and forgot about it in normal words. Oopsies.

Just curious, are those the actual SC4 numbers, or are those numbers for the DD?

Those are the actual SC4 numbers, not the DD numbers. The quarter is also in real time, from September 29, 2012 to end of December 2012. Smile
Some municipalities (Saltfield and Kuhan) are made up of multiple city tiles. The other municipalities are a single large SC4 tile.
