You bring up a good point. Not everything goes in hand like bread and butter (even in videogames). It looks nice thought regardless, it has it's own unique style that is interesting but it's not's everybody's cup of tea! Great updates man. I really looking forward to the next update of this CJ!!

Yes! I'm still alive!

This update should've been ready a month ago, but you all know how it is. This is my first small town in a while so hopefully you enjoy Smile



San Urbano is the name of a town surrounding what is probably the largest oasis in the Nahazzan Desert, a massive dusty plain going across the north of the country, and extending far north beyond that. Saint Pope Urban is the namesake of this town; his life is mysterious, similar to the life of the oasis that the town depends on.


The Old Town, as well as the town lawn and church.


The high school and athletics complex are to the south of the Old Town.


Outside are many agricultural areas, utilizing the water of the large oasis.


New developments to the south of the oasis.




New Chandlerites have always lived in dense areas, new apartments and condos spring up with oasis and desert dune views, even though San Urbano is a small town.


Congestion on the main road.


A glimpse of the lake.




More farms, and National Highway 1, a new and expensive road that connects all the way back to the people in New Chandler City who planned it halfway across the country.




Night shots. Not my forte by any means, but hopefully you enjoy them anyway!








Hopefully you enjoyed this update! Sorry I've been out so long, but until next time, leave a comment and tell me what you thought Smile

Thanks for all of you who left feedback on the San Urbano update. It was very different than what I'm known for being good at, the tropical theme, and some of you pointed that out, so we're going back to more tropical urban goodness in the next update.
 
Speaking of that tropical theme, I've had the goal of obtaining the "Best Tropical CJ" since Dream of a Summer Holiday won the inaugural award in that category two years ago. I finally got it this year after being runner-up the last, so I'd like to thank all of you who nominated New Chandler and who have left feedback the past year. I very strongly appreciate it Smile
 
I haven't posted a full update in over a month but I'm hoping to whip one out this week. I'm working on a new city, another suburb of Doherty. Here's the first look at it...

Congrats on the trixie, couldn't have thought a more tropical (and more deserving CJ!) for the award. Smile Heck, part of the description in the awards ceremony was my reason for nominating you. Razz This teaser looks awesome, love the different types of buildings you have in there. Smile

Thanks to all of you guys Very Happy

I've got a lot done with Murray City, my latest project. It's nestled between Carla Vista (update 52) and the Doherty City Proper, which will probably be my next projcet. Honestly, I've got enough for probably three updates (one freeway update, one transit update, and one regular one like this), which will be enough to keep this journal active for most of the next month.

This city (except the downtown) is inspired by the Buckman and Hosford-Abernathy Districts of Portland. I'm shooting for a lot of concrete and mass transit usage while keeping it relatively green with a mix of residential and commercial. Those areas are also close to the city center like Murray City is.

With that said I hope you enjoy this VERY tardy update Smile


This is Murray City. A lot of concrete and a lot of houses. (edit: no idea what the deal is with the elevated rail, it'll be fixed ASAP)


Highway 19.


Zaragoza Avenue.


Martinias Circle.


Continuing down Martinias Avenue...


Bocanegra District.


The Grosvenor Park District separates Downtown Murray City from the rest.


Downtown Murray City, for a suburb of a bigger city, boasts a very impressive commerce base.


The north end of Downtown, near Highway 19's interchange with Highway 240.


The south end, along Highway 240 (there's actually a lot of traffic here according to the route query, not sure why it's so dead right now Razz)


I'll end with Bonanza Heights; Highway 240 goes straight under the homes here (supposed to be like the Vista Ridge Tunnel; Doherty's craggy terrain will present a lot of these)


And one of Murray High School.


Thanks for viewing! I'm not sure whether or not I'll do an update along the freeway or the metro line next, if you have an opinion let me know. I'm grateful for all of your comments so leave one, thanks for the support as always Smile

Thanks you guys Smile Titanic: It's pretty big if I say so myself Razz




Thanks for all of the great remarks on my last update! For the first time in God knows how long, I'm posting a new update without a teaser first! It's a transit update, and it covers three large city tiles! I don't have a transit map yet (the bus lines in Carla Vista's hill-based street layout aren't playing nice) but I will release one with Update 56, which might come sooner than you think Smile
 
Until then, enjoy Update 55 from Carla Vista and Murray City!



The Doherty Metro Line 3 connects San Clemente City to the Doherty City Center, with a spur (Line 3A, you'll be on that later) connecting Carla Vista to the Doherty-East Pelham International Airport. We'll start on the outskirts of Murray City at Bocanegra Station. You'll notice the red ENG on the side: This means English. On some Doherty Metro publications and signs, a blue ESP is shown, proving it to be Spanish. This will make more sense when maps are released because it really doesn't now Razz


Next is the Martinias Transit Center, nearby private Catholic high school Notre Dame Prep. A few bus lines meet up here.


Proceeding on to National Avenue, a road synonymous with low-income "sketchy" shops. Be careful here at night.


In the Bonanza District now, right before the metro goes underground through Murray City's financial district. This is the site of a rare park-and-ride garage.


Not much farther down the line, underground, is Grosvenor Park Station, an area with midrise condo towers separating the financial district of Murray City and the western suburbs.


Crown Plaza, in the middle of Murray City, allows a connection to the 5 line. It's faster to get to the airport via the 5 line, but we're on a tour of Carla Vista too, so we'll stay on the 3.


The metro cuts north a little bit to Santa Clara Avenue's meeting with Highway 220 here. This is a popular bus stop.


Going a block south to hit a station on Diagonal Avenue, in east Murray City.


A large transit station is on Don Alvano Avenue's meeting with Santa Clara Avenue at Foothills Transit Center. A plethora of bus lines go through here.


A vibrant hillside neighborhood on the far west stretches of the city of Carla Vista, Trimalchio District is served by a station bearing the name.


Going over the hill now, and dropping down to Corita Avenue, Masterson Street, and Santa Clara Avenue's meeting. If you're waiting for a red left turn arrow here, you won't have a good time Razz


Underground now under the typical Carla Vista Hill. Escondido Circus allows metro access with a connection to bus line 41, serving a tremendous population of northwest Carla Vista.


At the bottom of the hill is Crown Point Road. This station also is a major bus stop as well, on top of being a block from a freeway junction.


Beistegui Valley is two blocks north of the Beistegui Circus (traffic circles on the bottom, beneath the sign), the north end of the famous Beistegui Avenue shopping strip.


Downtown Carla Vista appears just over the next small rolling hill. We're switching lines here to the 3A, connecting San Clemente City to the DEP Airport without having to backtrack through all of those Carla Vista and east Murray City stations to the 5 line.


Down Carla Vista Avenue's first big hill is Carla Vista Cove... forgot to put that red circle around the station, my bad.


Over the next hill is Bridgeview, a relatively run-down neighborhood.


And over the next few hills, at the mouth of the Carla Vista River, is Doherty-East Pelham (DEP) Airport. Our line terminates here and this will end our ride.


As I said at the top a map will be done in time. Until then, leave your comments, I'll reply as always, and I'll see you next time! Thanks for riding in New Chandler today Smile
