Thank you @bben, I didn't notice thanks for letting me know. This is excellent!
@pupper_donut thanks, I have known the skyline wasn't too interesting but it's coming well enough now. I was trying to focus on the undeveloped land around to make it look like it's not just a downtown area.
As for the traffic, there are no major issues. Traffic flow hovers around 86%. Perhaps the only place I see future trouble for is the intersection in a post I made a while back. The road connecting the outer suburb villa to the inner city takes 160-180 vehicles per game instance. More growth is expected to occur in that area. Hopefully this does not create a Katy Freeway scenario.
I am working to see how well this city can handle vehicle traffic without freeways, and when the time comes, I will split off this city with another saved game file where I construct freeways and check the differences. This should be an interesting experiment.
