Because I flit about between cities all the time, I'm just going to make one thread for all my work. These probably won't be as good as some of the excellent work I've seen from others here, but hey, I'd like to share them. Smile

I think I'll start with New Leon, as it's the biggest city I've made so far.

New Leon is the financial and political capital of the Vanstonia region for SimNation, and as such, has a large financial district, home to the headquarters of many international companies and banks.



New Leon East Station serves the district and is one of the busiest railway stations in the region.



Particularly brave souls may risk trying to find a parking space. The most direct route into the area being on the M9 that passes straight through New Leon.



However the majority of commuters utilise New Leon's excellent subway system.



During the lunchtime hours, many workers like to relax in the nearby Centre Park.



And after hours many successful workers may like to unwind at a show, the Theatre district is just slightly north of the financial district and is currently showing some world class plays.



I hope you like what you've seen so far, I'd love to hear your comments. Very Happy

Thanks. LHD comes with the UK version of Sim City 4, so I guess I'm used to it. It does make it a pain when wondering how some people's intersections work though! Ha ha!

You won't have long to wait, here's a section on the nightlife of New Leon. bounce

Mostly based around New Leon Piccadilly railway station, the New Leon nightclub scene is massive and offers something for everyone, the most popular club being Twisters Night Club, which plays an eclectic mix of music, specialising in Indie rock and Current hits. Many New Leon bands have been discovered at this establishment as they played at 'New Faces Night'. Where local bands are offered the chance to play for thousands of revellers.



Just around the corner is Atom Green. This used to cater towards a more discerning clientèle until a string of drug related incidents led to financial troubles for the club, it is now primarily visited by ravers and fans of hip-hop, dance and techno music.



Gaucho's is in the centre of the Darrensgate area of New Leon and plays mostly pop and 80's hits.



Across the road is the popular New Leon gay bar MoFo. Built from an old factory the club has gone from strength to strength as it's popularity grew with everyone due to it's good music, relaxed atmosphere and most of all, the cheap booze!



Of course, there's always something for the more seasoned club goer. Manero's club plays mostly disco and classics, but has been known to play some current pop songs on rare occasions.



Although if you fancy something a bit more avant-garde, and out of the way, you could always take in a local run play or interpretive dance at the Eddie Douglas Memorial Centre For The Performing Arts, located in the South-Eastern district of Gothard.



Although if even watching a grown man in his underwear stabbing a colouring book with a crayon is too mainstream for you, you could always just hang out in the 24 hour Starbucks in the Hipstoria area of New Leon, named so due to it's more 'arty' dwellers.

Evening guys, I think we'll take a look at New Leon's sporting facilities today.

This is Plainview Stadium, home of the New Leon Strikers and current leaders of the Eurasian division in the Roberto Clemente League of the SLB.



The minor league ice hockey team, the Puckers, play at the Victor Fries Arena, which has been the site of many hockey riots.



The football team, New Leon Bandits, is often fed by the university and as such, is in the campus area.



The Handegg ( Razz ) team plays at the Bighorn Bowl, but are hoping to move to a new stadium soon as the ball keeps ending up in the middle of Coventry Avenue, endangering the lives of staff.



But you don't have to be a professional to enjoy a knockabout. There are many parks offering ordinary citizens the chance to play a game or two.

All in all it's a very good update, for using predominately maxis content you've done a great job. But I'm not sold on that park. It would look so much better if it was ground level, plus you could add more "goodies" into it. You've also got some abandonment issues in the third picture.

Looking forward to more Smile
