[Huge City] Sheona Plains 7,510,727 people

Postby youngcitybuilderg » 22 April 2011, 21:43

I have a city here with 7.5 Million people (7,510,727). This city works with another unfinished city with 11 Million people called Sheona City, wich I will post pics of when it is finished. These cities are right next to each other wich is why they have the same name pretty much. Sheona City had only 1.5 Million people when I started Sheona Plains and both have built up together. Sheona Plains built up on all of its land 2 days ago, and Sheona City is almost complete, I'm projecting for almost 15 million once it is finished. The only mods used are the road mods by Pharmist :) UPDATE: 4-23-11 SHEONA CITY REACHED 20.5 MILLION AND THE GAME CRASHED!!!

Here is the postcard, vieing from the Sheona Plains Municipal Airport

@snick25 there is a lot of high density zoning, thats how i get 7.5 million people in :D Sky scrapers would probably look better in the center of a city with suburban like areas around them

@doc I agree, the bridges are up to high and curve way to much wich really does take from the realism of the city. But this is only my first city, and most of the bridges were put there as an expirement, and i just kept them because they seemed to help with traffic problems. My 2nd city im still woking on, wich now has 20 Million people, has bridges that look more normal and there are only a few of them.

I think that you have done a great job with your city. There are some great realistic elements in some of the suburb areas and then the row of towers and ferris wheel is really creative. As for the bridges.....wow!
I try for realism in my cities but occasionally I just go crazy and build bridges or blocks of buildings that would never ever exist in reality due to economic or engineering limitations. Thats why these games exist to let you do things a bit different and let your imagination run wild!
Keep it up and feel free to post more images :D

Thanks for the feedback. i know this city isn't to realistic or beatiful, but i was going for the population and it is my first city :)
My city called Sheona City completely crashed through at 20.5 million people, so I want to start another city. a couple questions:
1. How would you make a great highway with custom interchanges? i've seen people post cities with these custom interchanges on the forum.

2. What would make a skyline look absolutely amazing and still realistic?

your help is apprecitated

I'm not sure about custom interchanges, but you could always look at the pharmist mod thread.

About the skyline, it is usually a good idea not to over-do skyscrapers. It is usually more realistic to do some skyscrapers, then some medium density, and finally lots of low density surrounding it. You could look at some threads around here to get some ideas.
