I believe I have pretty much completed the construction of Elsewhere. Eventually I plan on doing some more fine-tuning, and some more design stuff. But for now, it is complete.
I’ve been working on a new city since I retired Dolan. I have named it Elsewhere. It is actually part of a trilogy of maps I have plans for 🙂 The other two are Somewhere and Nowhere. Yes, its a theme.
Elsewhere is built on a spit of land between a large lake and an ocean bay. I’ve fully embraced my love for Monorails here. I have four main lines coming out from the city center, and then a long one connecting the island on one side to the airport on the other.
A sad day has come. I have to retire/abandon the first city I’ve built in Cities: Skylines. I actually hit the in-game limitation on the number of buildings. (I was also rapidly approaching the limits for roads and intersections as well. The city was just TOO big. I had made it very dense, and just kept making it bigger. I had plans to keep going, but I’ve had to scrap it all now. I can’t place any type of building anymore. I’d need to go back and remove/redo half the city to be able to continue, and I don’t want to go there. I’ve grown attached to the poor city as it is.
The worst part was that I spent over an hour yesterday updating the “Old City”, adding some kewl towers and castle walls. Then I went to build my next suburb, and ran into the building limit issue.
Here are some pictures of the city to commemorate its retirement.
So I’ve been meaning to post about Cities: Skylines for over a month now. I had intended to document the growth of my city, but that ship has long sailed.
My city currently has a population just above 700,000. It is enormous! I really don’t feel like recapping its construction to this point, it could take FAR too long. Here are some pictures from a few days ago.
