Molowaku: The Return (and Simulcast!)

Post by wishfulanthony on Mon Aug 24, 2009 7:23 am

It's me, Anthony, if you remember from several SC4-related sites, and I'm bringing back my flagship City Journal (or should I say, simulcast it from my blog), Molowaku Island in which it will be launched here on SimSports as part of my Simlympics Bid!

Molowaku Island has gone through a long, diverse, and rich history. From over a hundred years of British colonization to its struggle for independence, from volcanic eruptions to industrial revolutions, from parliamentary to federal republic form of government, the island nation located in the Central Pacific near the Equator and east of the International Date Line has been flocked by many visitors and investors due to its prime location between Asia and the Americas. Politically, it has one of the simplest forms of governance, with just 4 regions, several towns and cities, and a few villages, and everything is linked together with a strong Executive, Legislative, and Judiciary forms of governance. Economically, it is one of the strongest members of the Alliance of Fuel Developing and Exporting States, with contributions to advancement in factory standards, green technologies, transportation developments, and workforce standards making it a great place to start up businesses and industries. Socially, it is a country of contrasts: laid back yet ultra-modern, determined yet friendly, persistent yet practical. Molowaku, in itself, is a country of strong economic growth, yet having a loving and open people.

Here's my first city for my return (and simulcast) here at SimSports: the City of Saint Paul.

The City of Saint Paul is host to quite a lot of superlatives in Molowaku, including the most heavily used bus terminal in the nation (now serving 45,000 passengers, with a capacity of just 10,000), the busiest rail station (Florentine Station), the largest cathedral (St. Mark’s Cathedral), and the busiest Metro and bus lines in the region. Despite the bustling growth of the city, Saint Paul remains to have its fresh, friendly atmosphere, with Joie D’Vivre reigning supreme in the city’s ecletic lifestyle. The city is a major destination for conferences, summits, and cultural events that shape the nation, from the AFDES Summit to the National Congressional Conference, which reflect the city’s (and nation’s) lineage towards a free, democratic rule.

Saint Paul is chosen to become the new capital of Molowaku, as it has the resources and capability to hold immense government, commercial, and social responsibility to the needs of the rapidly-industrializing country. It hosts to several parks, from the immense Central Park downtown to the Lanham Square located next to the Lanham Industrial Park that serves as a commercial center south of downtown. Its large tract of land makes the city a vital area for developing commercial, residential, and industrial areas, alongside with the development of parks that represent an area’s “center” where people gather to relax and enjoy the scenery. Downtown Saint Paul also hosts to other important structures, including many national and international headquarters, from MoloNetwork to Robertson Financial Group (now Thompson Financial Group), while north of the city houses the Molowaku Presidential Home, Congress, and Supreme Court in the so-called Government Square. The city is also a major cultural and sports center, with the newly-opened Saint Paul Concert Hall, home of the Saint Paul Opera, Molowaku Symphony, and Molowaku Ballet Troupe; several new stadiums are to be built as well for Saint Paul's bid for the Simlympics as well -- from the Telstra Stadium to the Molowaku City Dome.

Along with an immense bus and train riding population, Saint Paul also hosts to 1,264 taxi cabs (with more to come soon), 2 monorail lines, and several shuttles that run throughout the city, and the city is capable of handling thousands of commuters everyday through the city’s dozens of bus, train, monorail, and subway terminals. All transit forms in the city are interconnected, providing a hassle-free commute. With that, it can be surprising to know that more than 80% of the people in the city either walk or commute to work, with only 50,000 (and declining) driving cars; as a consequence, however, many bus and subway stops in the city are overcrowded, some exceeding 120% of capacity (6,000 passengers using, with only 5,000 capacity). With the increasing number of buses flocking the city, the City Government has allowed opening three bus yards to accommodate with the large number of buses traversing city streets.

Here are some of the pictures from Saint Paul. Enjoy!

Replies for now:

Aranho - well... if you want to make a city like what I have, make one! Smile Just do your best in making it.

Mayorm - oh really? Seriously? hehehe well, it really takes hard work to make my city what it is today.

Psander5 - oh yeah, you get to see that on my blog too, but in here, it is edited, that's why you might see differences between the two. But, overall, you get to see quite a bit more pictures here.

Simsamerica - hehehe NASCAR, eh? It's similar to NASCAR, but it's more like regular car racing. You remember from ST, eh? Well, it has found new homes here in the SimSports (for my bid in the Simlympics) and also at my own blog, in which it is close to its first year anniversary.
