Oh nice layout, looking great so far! :D
Did you do those intersections yourself or did you download them off the Steam workshop? Most of mine are just workshop downloads :P

All of the intersections I built myself. I did have a beautiful DDI that I downloaded but when I widened the main feeder road to six lanes each direction I had to destroy it. Most of the downloadable intersections are just too compact and unrealistic.

Beautiful, this is what I'm talking about when I say Skylines has the potential! :)

I actually did that. It didn't do as much as I expected. It flooded along the riverside highway, but by the time it got to the flatlands it was all contained in the riverbed.

Continuing work. Also a glamour shot. :P

The Illium National Bank (INB) Headquarters. :)

Laying the groundwork for some suburban sprawl!

And of course, the overview of how it's going so far.

Now that city is developing nicely! Is the your own building, if so nice work! I'd definitely like to place it in one of my cities! :D

Just so you know, I never used any interchanges except the default T-Interchange. Hahaha. Great work with the roads. :)

Thank you all for the kind replies! Also, just an FYI, I have NOT made any content for Cities: Skylines. I am not sure how to make it to be honest. I'll learn though.

Anyway, on to Update 1.3!
Callia City's motto is "Live a beautiful life". I hope you enjoy it!


Looking across the Athoss Bridge at downtown. Athoss Bridge is named after Captain Julian Athoss, of the East India Company. He was blown off course and his crew were the first documented Europeans to set foot on what would become the Kingdom of Illium right here on the Callia River Delta.
Image


Callia strives to be a green city, utilizing as much green-space and green energy as possible. This is the back of the INB Headquarters.
Image


Uptown Callia City, where all the fashionable and trendy shops and restaurants are located. This particular avenue is 6th street. When anyone wants to party in the uptown area, they generally say "Hey, we're headed to 6th street!".
Image


The University of Illium, Callia campus (commonly called UIC). One of the four major campuses for the University of Illium. UIC team mascots are the Ravens (Football/Soccer) and the Nighthawks (American Football)
Image


Life is quiet in the suburb. Here's a wonderful shot, looking over Grapevine Mills district with the Callia City skyline in the background. Grapevine Mills sits right on the very edge of the Callia City limits.
Image


Unfortunately, every city has it's less savory locations. Northmont Park is Callia City's ghetto district. Crime rates are marginally higher, although not anywhere near as bad as Illium City's ghettos, thanks to a very... noticeable police presence. CCPD community outreach program has a surprising success rate here. Unfortunately, it seems like businesses would rather not be associated with the Northmont Park area, simply because it's known as a "trashy" place to be.
Image


And of course the obligatory overview of the developed area.

Those suburbs are filling in nicely!
Apparently you can make content for CS much like for sc4 but a lot easier, I might have to give it a go sometime. :P
