Part 1

Ok so here is San Siro, well..... the embryotic version of San Siro as I have just built some of the sea walls and some of the major roads that will make up my capital city.



I'll start by highlighting one of the most developed (if you could say that) portions of the city Colina de la Fortaleza; or Fortress Hill.





This is where I plan to build my university as pre mentioned in K50's CJ. I am naming the university Universidad de la Colina de la Fortaleza, I recognize the fact that this is a mouth full so I will refer to it as UCF (not to be confused with the University of Central Florida). The University will provide the state funded education, as opposed to the Catholic University I will be placing some where else (TBD) in my capital city.



the last thing I would like to highlight photo wise is this little ditty which was.... fun..... to construct but I think it will look good especially when the tree's come in and I'm looking foward to how it looks with the buildings from the university up on the hill there. I'll also look forward to how it looks when I have finished the NAM work on the area which if you look closely in this picture and the previous 2 you will see I've begun.

Notes:
I recognize that I still had the grid turned on (why I forgot to shut it off I have no idea) in particularly the last picture I plan to rectify this for the next up-date.

I also notice that I am having a few display issues, mostly in my sea walls, this is likely due to the fact that I have not downloaded all the dependency's yet for the sea walls.... I just wanted to get this going first before I got everything cleaned up.

I plan to download some terain and water mods in the future I just wanted to show you guys how the city evolves from nothing into something.

Notes about realism:
I also recognize that the low lying land that will constitute my capital is un-realistic, as I will later explain with my back story the island is in the Caribbean ocean which is prone to hurricanes and other large storms... having a wall clearance of about 5 feet would spell disaster for a city. I plan to include more realistic storm surge protection at the entrance to those rivers from the sea.

I also know that the super strieght shorelines is un-realistic, it will be assumed that as the city prospered in it's up-bringing a large sum of money was spent on infrastructure improvements like sea walls and flattening ground in the area to better facilitate construction.

Finally I notice there is no fresh water supply on the city and in-order for there to be civilization there needs to be fresh water... I considered saying the rivers were freshwater but they have no source they all come from the ocean so this is unrealistic. I decided using the canal's I will be creative with geology and a spring system to explain a fresh water source in later updates.



Update 2: will include the construction of UCF and possibly the main cathedral on the island and a little bit of back story behind the founding of San Siro

Thanks for your kind words, I too can't wait for the city to start taking shape but it's always hard to get that vision in your head down onto the screen it will be a fun challenge. The UCF update will come at the end of this week on Thursday or Friday depending on how busy my RL is in the later part of this week.

Canuck- thanks

Max- well that's the goal isn't it? Laughing

K50- *looks up Arizona State University on google..... sees a bunch of hot half to fully naked chicks...* I'm taking that as a compliment


So this isn't really an update more a few questions and a change in my earlier update

First:



I have changed the stadiums for baseball and softball on the UCF campus, the reason for this will be explained in my next update

Second
As part of this update I'm building an elevated rail system using the elevated rail seen below which comes with the NAM


I like this El- Rail and I'd like to use it on my island but I'm having one minor problem with it. When building an intersection like the one shown below that is on the maxis ground rail. I can't find a way to make a fork in the rail like the one shown below.


This causes me some problems because it forces me to make intersections like this:


which is fine and well and all.... but it's bulky and takes up more space than I would like.

Any suggestions?

It's the number one party school in the USA can you tell? Razz

About your problem, thats pretty strange, it appears there isn't a Y-interchange thing on elevated rail for what I can see... although it looks pretty unrealistic, if you want to do turns, I would use the wide curves. It is tough to build around, but it looks much better Smile (remember that in the real world the rails came before the roads too Wink)

Post by Emperador gran dios on Mon Oct 18, 2010 10:49 am

(and UConn is the second 1 week a year.... I have friends who go there they tell me the spring weekend is F'D UP!)

Well the wide curves I did consider using where the rail curved but stayed strieght but I scrapped it in favor of a smaller curve because the rail sort of mirrors that outside road shown in the first picture of update one. Unlike in real life the roads came first for me.

I guess I'll just have to deal with the strange curves like that I only have 2 so it's not that big of a deal.

On a semi related note anyone know of specific stations to go with this or will any El-rail station do?

Elevated Rail (subway/glr elevated rail) uses Elevated Rail stations. The Rail Viaduct (what you use) can't use those stations unfortunately.

I have seen only three rail viaduct stations. One I can't find the link to, but it fits in a "grimy" low-wealth setting, one is a bit quaint-ish, CLICKY, the last one, my recommendation is these Japanese ones from BriPizza's website (CLICKY). Bripizza is by far the best transport BAT'er in my opinion, one reason it because they "overhang" so you can drag absolutely anything you want through them Smile

Hope that helps!

ok so I apologize for the lateness of this, this will likely be this and next weeks update just because of my life getting a little crazy the past week and a half or so.

Universidad de Santa María
(Saint Mary's College)
*The official colors are red and white but white doesn't show up well on the forum



Full Name: Universidad de Santa María
(Saint Mary's College)
Motto:Educación a través de dios
(Education Through God)
Founded: 1842
Endowment: $0.00
President: Cardinal Tomas Satara
Undergraduates: 1,500
Graduates: 100
Athletic Scholarships: 100
Sports:
Mens & Womens Football (Soccer)
Mens & Womens Basketball
Softball
Baseball
Mens & Womens Swimming
Mens & Womens Rowing

Campus: Urban
Colors: Red & White
Nickname: Crusaders
Mascot: Anthony the Lancer

Buildings:
Old Main: Aka- The Dome is the only class building on campus. It provides as both a university chapel, and class building for the university.
The Father Mathew Student Union: Home to the Gym/Basketball arena and Dining services
The towers of god: nickname to the 4 dorm buildings. The inner two are housed by liberal arts students and are furnished more apartment like similar to there cousins on UCF with bedrooms and a common kitchen room per suite. The outer two are housed by the biblical studies students and are far more traditionally furnished, with basically a bed and a desk. At the bottom of each building is an identical library, the inner two buildings also have computer labs on the second floor.

University Stadium: Seats around 2,000 people and is home to Mens & Womens Football (Soccer). Locker rooms and food venues are under the home stands
College Field: Seats around 1,000 people and is home to Baseball home and away locker rooms are under the stands
Mother Sara Field: Named for first headmistress of the University from 1977-1990 Seats just under 750 people and is home to softball

University tower: An observation tower overlooking the river and the university. Used for various purposes

Catedral de la trinidad santa
(Holy Trinity Cathedral)


Catedral de la trinidad santa, or Holy Trinity Cathedral was built in the late 1700's in the Gothic style at the heart of San Siro's Capital. The Building sits on an island at the center of a small pond near the center of the main island. 3 bridges emulate out from the cathedral and it's plaza to form a cross in the island with the Cathedral at the center.

at the top of the pond behind the cathedral are 3 man made islands that represent the holy trinity for which the cathedral is named.


Beyond the pond is Cross park, a large open plaza for people to meet after the Sunday services, the stairs at the top of the cross lead directly to the Cathedrals catacombs that entomb all heads of state and all archbishops of San Siro since the early 1700's

San Siro's El-Rail Line
The local line on San Siro's capital is an Elevated rail line due to the low lying proximity of the island. It was felt that putting a subway system on the island could be disastrous in cases of flooding.

The line has 4 main stops including ones at:

Universidad de Santa María

The Base of Cross Park

National Stadium

Trinity Cathedral


more will be added when I begin to add businesses and residential buildings to the island and after I finish the government buildings


The Rail crosses the river and goes to the regional rail here and then transitions to a land rail services


From there the rail line connects to UCF by the sports arena's



Here is an overview similar to the first update showing you the progress thus far in the construction of San Siro


*Note I chose not to include an update about the national stadium (the birds nest at the bottom of the picture above, because I'm not sure if I will be using that model for the stadium I'm going to wait to see what population counts are and if that is an appropriate sized stadium for the island before making it final. But it was such a beautiful lot and after the fiasco that is the AGS baseball fields being locked by the admin at simtropolis I figured I should get this while I still had the chance

Great Update I love the tie in of religion around that University. Cross park is very nice and I especially love the Trees around the Cathedral.

also the Birds Nest looks good there honestly and don't forget that you'll likely draw from the neighboring city tiles for Matches there anyways so a larger stadium could be applicable.

Thanks Canuck, I can't take credit for the tree's around the cathedral it's part of the lot, it's an incredible lot I had to use it.

I think the bird nest looks good there as well, I'm curious to see what my population ends up being for the region. I'd love to use that lot because it's immaculate, the capacity is 80,000, I feel that a population of around 750,000 should be efficient for that to work well I'd expect around 10% of a population to go to a sporting event.

Red- Government Buildings, Museums, etc

Green- multiple things like parks, housing, local business, schools, hospitals, fire and police

Purple- Large commercial center, downtown, financial district

Gold- High wealth, high rise apartments
