SvÝrdendar Bid for August Simlympics!

Post by Melbourne on Mon Jun 09, 2008 7:59 pm

The city-state of SvÝrdendar is formally placing a bid for the August Simlympics. The city, although old (600years) has never placed a bid for the Simlympics. Due to co-incide with the 600 year anniversary of the city, the Government, Crown and public have launched a campaign of renewal and developement to hopefully see that the Simlympics visit this Scandinavian city for the first time.

Here is the logo for the SvÝrdendar Simlympic bid:



The lines represent the canals of the city (which you shall see soon!) with them coloured the Simlympic colours. This design was voted favourite by the public.

Historic SvÝrdendar

Post by Melbourne on Mon Jun 09, 2008 8:23 pm

Here is the historic heart of SvÝrdendar. The canal system was the primary means of movement throughout the city until the advent of roads. Now, the roads frame the canals which are lined with historic houses.

The island which the city was first founded.

King Leopold Park is the heart of the historic district with locals converging on the leafy green space whenever possible.

What I have not shown yet, but will do soon, is the second half of the city which has been developed and is a modernist paradise.

Any overview of the Simlympic Zones, Downtown and Historic District. There may be an updated photo if the City Council decides to fund the construction of a monorail linking the airport, Simlympic Park and Downtown.

More coming soon

good overview shot another quick tip for ya-when taking screenshots you can completly close the nav panel by clicking on the minimize button in the lower left corner then pushing ctrl+shift+S you will get the screenshot tool without needing the menu for it thus giving us unspoiled pictures.

I look forward to seeing if Mass tranist is implemented

Looking really good Melbourne Very Happy. One tip though; maybe try to download a few different parks, rather than just having lots of the same park next to each other - it'll look a bit nicer.

I like the logo too!
