Your plans sound quite interesting; old roman styled buildings! Wow, this city really has a history!

That skyline looks great!

Thanks very much:D

Here are a few pictures of the new buildings!

My two thousand foot tall gothic futurism tower!

My attempt at making a duplicate of the Empire state building!
I like how it turned out!

My Rockefeller center is back!
I know some have said it's too small, but this city has such huge buildings that I decided that it should be smaller then the real one.

Thats all for now, I'll be doing more on the city in June!
I'm planning an the city being on an island!
The river was straightened by the roman settlers!
Right across the river from the park is where the old roman city will be!
As the city is in the south Atlantic near Brazil, the civilization did not fall with the rest of the empire, so this city still has a roman emperor!
There will be a huge palace!
Once the central section is done, I'll do the old section!
Then I'll do the beachfront section!
Then I'll do the last high-rise sections, and then fill in the rest of the city.
It will be in a roughly 10 by 20 mile city, with the island several times bigger!

I like your city, it reminds me alot of my original Lakeport model.
You did a good job on texturing the city, and your attempt at building a duplicate of the empire state building is very nice, although it looks alot like my still unfinished Goldspire tower, :)

I also like your Rockefeller center building, I hope you don't mind if i use that as a template for Lakeport's 2nd tallest. :D

My favorite building is the futurism tower, even if it dwarfs my Goldspire building, which will be 35 floors high (484ft high)

The gothic futurism tower looks fantastic! Great job skydragon!

Sure you can!

Thank you very much!

I've finished three more blocks!

Here is a very old building.

Former twin towers!

They where build in 1929, but in 1951 there was a fire in the attic that caused a partial collapse!
The company was not only somewhat corrupt, but also had fallen on hard times! So they could not afford to rebuild the top of the building.
Instead they just cleaned up debris and put up a haphazard roof to stop water from getting in!

The top floors are abandoned, and since it was determined that the rest of the building was safe, they just left it!

The city had no laws about this sort of thing when it happened, but if it ever happens again, it will be illegal not to rebuild!

Thats all for now!
The pictures will be smaller after this.
How do you like my disaster building?

I like that triangular one alot, Lakeport will have a skyscraper construction spree during the 1950s to 1980s, and another from the 1990s to 2020s. I still need to build downtown, and maybe a rail yard for Lakeport's Light Rail system.

I like the disaster building, :)

I've made a lot of progress on the city!

Here is my Times square!

A huge outdoors movie theater!

Here is one of my insane architecture buildings!

My red and green twin residential buildings!

Thats all for now, I'll see if I can finish this section of the city, and then start the old roman section!

I like the alternate history thing your bringing into this. It's an interesting, kind of a scifi idea, that the Romans would have colonized South America.

Nice idea with the partially collapsed building. The city is full of unique buildings!

The central section is finally complete!
Here is a satellite view of the city!
Here is a nice view from the savanna preserve!
A great view from Acropolis Two!
Here is the third park and the savanna preserve!
Here is the World trade center:)

I've already started the old Roman section, but it has to be in it's own file!
I'll import it to Remus city when it's done!
All this is just the beginning of my city! Theirs going to to a ocean front section thats like Dubai, and as this is midtown there will be a downtown section across the river next to the old section! There will be a Bronx section too!

I've finished the old Roman styled section!
Here it is from above!
All the blocks with diagonal streets are where buildings where destroyed by the British in the Napoleonic wars!
So they where replaced with Paris style buildings, however the people didn't really like it, so for future expansion they used the city style of Barcelona!
Here is the Coliseum, and the densest part of the old city.
Here is the Pantheon! It has a very similar design to the one in Rome!
This is Saint Mathew's Basilica! The original was very different and was ransacked by the British in 1813! The city's Arch Bishop declared that since the British had destroyed a Catholic church, they where not Christian and could not go to heaven!
Here is an interesting view.
The Roman Forum!
The golden pyramid on top of the monolith!
A golden dome on top a column!
The castle and the Emperors Palace!
The Emperors Golden Pyramid, in his courtyard!
A view from a strangely built palace!
A roman bath.
Density rivaling Paris!
Thats all for now, please tell me what you think!
I'll post a few more photos of it another time.
And then I'll reveal the old city's location near the modern city!

Well, here are some views of the Roman city.
The city gate.
The castle wall.
A typical narrow street.
The docks, they seem to be glitching however...
City density and the circus maxemus.
The old prison, you don't want to be sent there! Inmates are often beaten out of recognition!
A view of the plaza.
The city center!
The castle!
Another view of the plaza.
The city was once attacked by an Amazon tribe, but the Roman catapults, crossbows and Greek fire butchered them!
They also had minor wars against the Mayans and the Aztecs, before America was discovered!
