  1. Actually my region now has 16 million now, you must have missed my last update But thanks for your explanations on your populations. of course its more than just how many sims you can get in a region, that makes a nice region.. You have always had quality cities, Pierre.. and thanks for your update here my friend !
  2. this is my first ever CJ or DD Hope you all like it. let me start off with a routing pic. I enjoy transit and function of it. This is the underground view of a station which has complex transfers to many different networks. This is a new station from the NAM, which is called the Modern Arch rail station. Thanks Brian
  3. Another population milestone goal has come and gone.. 16 Million in the Florida region
  4. 4044 and the tropics are really picking up now..
  5. wow , this is the first time ive seen Satellite views in CS, This looks like a very cool feature here. I really like it.. Thanks for posting these, Aldini !
  6. wow Aldini ! a 1/4 mil sounds like a lot for CS ? how is that comparable to a city population in sc4 ya think ?
  7. ohhh those are fantastic night shots Aldini.. ! I so love night shots in CS too man !! and also such tall and great looking sky scrapers.. I think these are the best pics I have ever seen of those tall boys so far..
  8. wow Aldini !, this population is really moving now !! Great to see the city really is rapidly prospering and developing at this kinda rate.. In addition another great set of quality pics from you.. Thanks man for your continued updates and dedication to your Quality CJ
  9. Ocean View Surpasses 3/4 of Million ( 750,000) Population 3- pic Update : This area is one of the denser residential areas of the growing city.. With the increasing population + also the improvements I have made to the centralized RHW-4 elevated level 1 highway, I am finally starting to get some decent traffic usage from this highway system
  10. 4040 We have been in a very rainy period here also !
  11. 4037 a welcome back to my 2 good friends, Neal + Rocky !!
  12. I prolly will still not be using Discord chat , sorry Omni

  13. Great to have the game back working for you with these kinda quality pics and posting ! look forward to more pics and updates from you.. Fantastic realism, detail and quality as we have come to expect from you !
  14. wow man ! another 9 pic update ! and all quality pics too But my fav of this set has to be the Airport station pic !! Looks fantastic, and i just love this view and pic ... keep up the great posting work here, Aldini !
  15. Pierre , thanks for your informative post on your cities population.. + .. you give what i assume to be the full region population total also ? this looks to be a very exciting time for you as you have no less than 6 cities that are now over 800 K population ! I am hoping that you plan future population milestone postings as each city exceeds the 1 million population mark ?
  16. Thanks for the compliments Pierre I think the worst congestion i have so far is I have some rail lines now that vary from yellow to orange.. I was going to provide a pic or 2 but I think i will wait until i can get my city population at least back up to 720 K where I had it a short time ago ...
  17. Ocean View Surpasses ( 700,000) Population !!!
  18. wow josh, this is a fantastic rail system you have already whipped together.. This is clearly beyond my own expectations of what this entailed ! How has this benefited ( effected), traffic congestion levels so far overall ?
  19. Thanks much for your comments and questions guys ! I will take Josh questions first : I have all custom settings for the traffic capacities. but the( overall/ average) difficulty can best be described as slightly more difficult than Z ( Medium) Yes I have,, I upgraded that highway portion to a RHW- 4 And now on to Pierre - Those are actually parking garages with underground subway station function
  20. nice desktop image there Spook
  21. wow man, you have really improved this a lot !
  22. 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.
  23. wow, spook.. thanks for the additional links there.. remind me in chat when i have some time to explore all those
  24. 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 -
  25. 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..
