  1. Today
  2. Interesting and clever design of the city, with an excellent optimization of the travel distances and durations of the commutes. No wonder the city is growing by leaps and bounds. The 6 large green 'things', visible in the central CBDs in both pictures, are train stations I suppose. Which station(s) are they?
  3. Yesterday
  4. Great work, although I'm interested in knowing which network capacity setting you use for the traffic simulator (medium, high, ultra etc). The central highway is what I do in most of my cities, mainly to connect residential areas to industrial and commercial in order to create massive highway traffic jams . Have you resolved the congestion issue on the RHW-2 near the rail station as you showed a few updates ago?
  5. Last week
  6. nice desktop image there Spook
  7. Wanted to share one more, this is with music playback stuff running, in case anyone was wondering how I listened to stuff like that.
  8. Definitely an interesting set of images...
  9. Today I would say its cold out side but summer should be starting up here soon!
  10. I probably will not use discord no need for me to use it I'm fine with SM chat at the moment but thanks for sharing anyways sorry I have not been posting on SM been kinda busy with stuff.

  11. wow man, you have really improved this a lot !
  12. Earlier
  13. been tweaking some more, here's my desktop currently, compiz FTW!
  14. of course brian, there's a lot there of all media types in the database, it's a great way to explore what cyberpunk is as far as a style both in storytelling and in reality.
  15. Josh, another suburb update ! If this is just a smaller update, well the amount of pics and your excellent descriptions still put my small sc4 updates to shame in comparison here.. Ya , i really wonder if those new turning lanes were part of the key to reducing traffic in your first pic. Of course I am hoping that is the case.. And jumping down to your last congestion pic, Yes it still looking we do have some further traffic congestion concerns to deal with here.. I will be curious of the great mass transit ideas you mentioned will play a major role later in the traffic reduction.
  16. Thanks TC and brian! Today, a short-ish update. Rapid expansion has necessitated the reconstruction of Peaster Highway in Eagle Mountain. Previously a two lane road with turn lane segments, the roadway is now a 2+2 configured arterial roadway with turning lanes at each intersection. This has thus far significantly reduced commute times and has provided more reliable access for inter-city traffic. The upgrades also included a new SPUI at the junction of Peaster Highway and Highway 320. Meanwhile, overcrowding at the Hemlock Station continues to worsen by the day. Calls for additional passenger rail services as well as a city bus line have been steadily growing louder. This station is served by the Tampere BlueLine, a rail line with four stops connecting the oil district to the west side of Tampere, including the Aspen Park area. While usage has been fairly consistent, the need for additional lines, especially heading south toward Eagle Mountain and Peden, have been growing. A few routes have been proposed, but none have been approved as of yet. A proposed intermodal transit center, indicated by the light blue circle, would connect the BlueLine and proposed red line to Eagle Mountain. In addition, a green line would begin near Aspen Park and connect the west side of Tampere to Peden. In addition, city bus lines with a central hub located at the intermodal center have been proposed. Finally, here's a traffic map. Problem areas shown in red include the Energy Corridor as well as areas surrounding the Hemlock Station, in addition to the northern portions of Eagle Mountain and, as expected, central Tampere. If approved, will the proposed city bus network and rail lines relieve pressure in these areas? We will soon find out.
  17. wow, spook.. thanks for the additional links there.. remind me in chat when i have some time to explore all those
  18. Josh, thanks for your posting ! I think i have planned out a pretty good system to use here. So i will try to elaborate on your answer thru a few pics .. i think I posted a similar pic when i first started the city. but with a more recent pic its easier to see now how I staggered the zones in a North - South fashion, which i think is one of the better lay out ideas to try and control traffic routing in Sc4. Since traffic is reliant on a pretty simple system of ( home to jobs) / morning commute and than from( jobs back to home) / evening commute again. But the main idea was a central highway system that cuts North to south across the entire map, and than supplemented by 2 main rail lines- Than later on I decided to add a full- city wide subway system.. My pic here will show you at what stage of development that has grown to. I just recently connected just about the entire map , North - South with it -
  19. hey take a look at the opening post, I just linked in a viewable/Searchable database of cyberpunk media. there's a lot
  20. Aldini, it is great your back creating a new CS , city Journal again ! And it looks like your off to a good start here also... I look forward to frequent updates now on this new developing city my friend..
  21. I've started working on a new city a while ago. Main soon to be downtown area. The main downtown school buildings with associated green space/parks. Cookie cutter subdivision in the middle of nowhere. More to come...
  22. Listening to Celldweller - Wish Upon A Black Star Album
  23. Josh, your really doing excellent work with all these towns and cities.. I think only one town showed a small decrease.. Where as there has been some big time development that is very impressive in a couple of towns, But just about all of them are showing at least some increase in population...Keep up the good work and also your excellent CJ updates my friend..
  24. This city is growing quite rapidly! I'm surprised you're keeping traffic levels fairly low throughout. What sort of configuration are you using for network capacities?
  25. Fantastic as always. Love the curvy streets in the neighborhoods.
  26. Today, a population update on each of the municipalities Twin Lakes comprises, and some of the new development taking place. From the previous population update, Tampere saw an increase from 67,543 to 74,191, an 9.84% increase. Much of this new growth can be attributed to the fast-growing condo developments cropping up on the edges of the city, some of which we will soon see. Eagle Mountain's population nearly doubled, seeing an 87.69% increase from 11,896 to 22,328. Eagle Mountain is now the second largest municipality in the region, behind Tampere. A massive, rapidly expanding suburban development just east of Peden, as well as the regional condo expansion, are the primary causes for such a massive increase. Aspen Park is no stranger to the condo expansion, seeing a 6.67% population increase from 15,935 to 16,998. Aspen Park's population was recently overtaken by Eagle Mountain, meaning Aspen Park is now the third largest municipality in the region. Hemlock has also seen a population increase thanks to new low-density subdivisions in the area. The municipality saw a 33.06% population increase, up to 10,895 from 8,188. If any municipality could be considered a boom town, it would, without question, be Peden. Once a quiet town just outside the reaches of suburban expansion, Peden has begun to see the rapid condo expansion as well as large new low-density subdivisions. Peden was the fastest growing municipality by percentage, with a staggering 200.20% population increase, from 2,454 to 7,367. Peaster has also seen some staggering growth thanks to the new bypass route and regional hospital. Up to 1,927 from 1,097, this municipality has seen a 75.66% population increase. Bedford was the only municipality to see a population decrease, down from 2,315 to 1,920. Earlier predictions suggested this municipality could soon be home to nearly 30,000 residents, but thanks to low land value and budget constrictions, this new development could end up being a total flop. Will the population recover and will Bedford see prosperity? Only time will tell. Bayberry's population has seen some recovery, rebounding to 977. However, this still does not compare to the four-digit population this municipality experienced years ago. Finally, the affluent enclave of Preston Hollow saw a marginal population increase of 53 residents. This translates to a 6.96% population increase, up to 814 from 761. Next, let's take a quick look at three rapidly developing parts of the region. Firstly, we have what is being called the Energy Corridor (yes, also named after an area in Houston). Situated near the Grand Parkway and NH 45 junction, this area has seen rapid high-rise office development, as well as the addition of new condominium parks and big box retail development. Near highway 6320 and the Old Peaster Highway lies a new municipality, Lafayette Heights. With a population of 578 it is the least populous municipality in the region, but it is unlikely to remain that way for long. Finally, along the Peaster Highway lies a gigantic new low density residential development within the Eagle Mountain city limits. This area will soon be home to several new arterial roads and businesses. Current estimates show the area could be home to nearly 20,000 new residents in the next 10 years.
  27. Ocean View Surpasses ( 600,000) Population !!! This is a view of the South CBD, which has really taken shape now.. with a nice collection of high rises , which you would expect in a city of this size- traffic is still surprisingly under good control despite the expanding population of the city.. So far there are just a few rail + subway lines that go into the yellow to orange congestion shading ranges,,This pic shows one such rail line -
