  1. Chapter 1: Old Boots, New dirt Well hello and welcome to Charleston, this newly founded town is just starting to get its roots along the Black Water River! Now as with any town there are certain necessities, water, sewer and power. Mayor 7499275 had to really pull some strings on the county level to allow dumping sewage directly into the Black Water. The river actually runs into a protected National Forest Further down stream so typically dumping raw sewage into it would be a big no no. However 7499 was able to pull some strings with some good ol American green. (No I don't mean that green ) Once the utilities are up and running we began building our first new houses. The first few houses proved to be no problem from the local Government. Although the contractors were complaining about not having enough water. Who needs water when you're right beside the river! Am I right? I mean come on now, go skinny dipping, live a little. I mean who knows, maybe one of those people moving in is a nice tall 21 year old blonde Once we had a handful of people moved in (and maybe two handfuls of those blondes I was talking about) we realized they had no jobs unless they wanted to commute over an hour! Now, no one, I mean no one likes that unless your job pays you for your gas. The next challenge to us was the fact no large manufacturing plants wanted to move into a town where they had to pay out the backdoor just to haul the goods to be sold. So after throwing in a few tax breaks and other incentives those manufacturers agreed to begin building in Charleston providing jobs for the locals. Now this is great news and all right? Well you would assume so, a growing economy is a healthy economy until one manufacturer decides to go rouge. More on that later, stay tuned! TEASER!! The next major challenge is connecting two major highways to allow for goods to be easily transported out of the city which was part of the incintives agreement to get the companies to move in. Only one problem, remember that rouge company I mentioned earlier? Yeah they don't like this idea.
  2. Hey everyone, its currently Monday, after tonight I won't be back in chat for a while. I'll try to lurk the forums from my phone, but the whole reason for this is. My laptop is currently being bought from Rent-a-Center. I am in need of a vehicle as mine took a crap and is not worth fixing. I need to be cutting expenses that I don't "need" This is just bull shite to no end. I was really enjoying being back and posting in the forums and being active with the community... Anyway guys, like I said after tonight I'll be lurking, just not posting too much...
  3. So due to my upcoming leave I figured why the hell not... Didn't get a before and after pic because my game crashed when 15 asteroids struck the city... At the same time. Some people want to watch the world burn.
  4. So guys, I need some opinions, what should I do to this open "park" area to liven it up a little? Nice little shoreline progress, tax income is actually becoming crazy. This picture I really wish I had it set to night time for this shot, I think its my favorite picture out of this whole city of mine so far.
  5. Driver: Rocky (7499275) Age: 19 Hometown: Rostock, Germany Preferred Truck Design: Peterbilt Current Operating Truck: Peterbilt 389 series, 2004. Engine Power: 840 horse power Torque: 2,300 foot lbs Transmission: Eaton Fuller 18 gear, 14.40 rear ends Fuel Tank: 237 Gal Purchased: Brand new So guys more or less I'm just gonna keep track of my ETS 2 game here. Hope you all enjoy
  6. @pupper_donut Yeah she can haul some ass @Towncrafter She has the power behind her I couldn't even tell the 14 tons were there. Next load is gonna be something much heavier. I did alerady replace the transmission. The Eaton Fuller 18 gear with 14.40 gear ratio maxed out at going 85mph. I need some more speed @bben Yeah this game is pretty amazing, hell I don't even have the graphics turned up all the way yet either.
  7. First load with the new beast. Cargo: M-48 (United States Military Anti Aircraft) From: Hamburg, Germany Destination: Odensk, Denmark Weight: 14 U.S Tons So yeah just go ahead and ignore the spped I'm going with this load. I mean... I got a bad ass engine under the hood so it happens In all honesty though, my dad, uncle and cousin have all been truck drivers and it's something I've wanted to do for a very long time. Once I turn 21 in a year and a half this is what I plan on going to school to do.
  8. So again, as soon as I opened it up we had a random earth quake hit the city. Striking near the Eastern side of the city. Take out some road ways, part of a roundabout and some rail track. However though, I really like the way the close up looks now with this small ditch dug into it with the trees. I'm considering running some canals and dig more ditches to allow more water flow in and around the city. Not sure, what do y'all think? After rebuilding So the following picture was actually taken minutes before the earth quake struck. You can see the way the roadways and railways were laying before they got destroyed. Also a new district is being built out here! And lastly I now have a metro running below most of the city that is all connected so citizens can travel almost the whole city via public transport!

  11. Banned for having a green avatar!
  12. Being on that ship would have been one hell of a ride! Actually my population did not shrink any because the way that the river sits it only went about a block and a half inland at most. Only had to rebuild 3 buildings with it.
  13. Decided to fire up Cities Skylines and this is the mess I'm INSTANTLY thrown into. Now due to a lot of traffic hitting my current business area's I am going to try and create a central business district. This district will also hopefully hold monuments and other tourists attractions so that most of the traffic in and out will be public transport. If not I'm hoping the road ways that are gonna be designed (still a work in progress) will be able to handle the load.
  14. Banned for killing this thread!

  19. I may bash Simcity 4 a lot for being outdated but for being 13 years old it looks amazing.
  20. Well the game was just updated and if anyone actually was interested in checking this videos out I'm up to episode 6 of just this game. I just haven't been posting here and spamming up the thread with embedded videos.
  21. So guys I found this game on Christmas day on Steam, thanks to the winter sale I got it for dirt cheap. It was worth a lot more than I paid for it in my opinion. If you like the art style of "Prison Architect" and some of the gameplay mechanics of it mixed with a more tycoon style game this is the game for you! Essentially you start out with a large portion of land with 1 road for access and a starting bank account of 200k which can be changed from the starting menu. The whole goal is to make a mall, or a bunch of stores kinda like a plaza format, its your choice! Now the game is still early access which means it is not finished yet and many gameplay mechanics are still not in the game. However... It is still amazing. If anyone is interested I'd recommend checking it out.
  22. I really like the way you got it planned out too Brian! I'm personally kinda curious on what highway system you are gonna come up with for this city haha
