First time here, and as a NAMite, I'm quite impressed with your usage of diagonals throughout here--it's really a distinct style of network layout, and I like what you've done with it.  I'm also always drawn in by road construction, so I'm enjoying see the upgrades you're doing as well. There's also a good interface between the natural and built environment, too.

And also, since this is now Reply #100, it's my distinct honor as a member of SC4D Staff to move "From Schmotenton to New Portland - the rise (and possible fall) of Bran Castle" up to the Best Sellers category.  Congratulations! :thumbsup:

  • Of course it's legal, why wouldn't it be?

UPDATE 34.2 - THE END OF FOREST'S END

The part of Forest’s End which runs along the bank of the Simoleon River can thank its existence to its most notable and distinguished feature - it is home to the region’s first brewery, now mostly a museum although it still produces a small batch saison twice a year (one dark winters brew and a spring/summer edition). To start, the brewery was all alone on the banks of the river. Of course, people wanted to live closer and closer and eventually the long arm of Forest’s End came to be!

34.14 - Whilst not the biggest, nor the fanciest, homes in New Portland, the four houses overlooking the river and closest to were coveted by many as the best four houses in the realm.


34.15 - Of course, the outlook and general ambiance for most of the places along the banks wasn’t too bad!


34.16 - Even the little commercial strip was quite nice, although regarded by many as wasted on shops and parking (at least wasted on such a drab little strip).


34.17 - An overview of ‘the arm’

UPDATE 35 - PICKET WEST

Ground wasn’t broken in Picket West until 1969, it was always destined for great things.

35.1 - From humble beginnings ...


35.2 - its proximity to North Adelaide and the Adelaide CBD assured the suburb of its popularity.


35.3 - As the usage of the regional highway crossing the river picked up, a large roundabout came to dominate the entrance to the suburb and construction took off.


35.4 - And construction carried on.


35.5 - And on.


35.6 - And on.


35.7 - Picket West was regarded by many as the perfect mix of high rise development and impressive low density stately homes, complemented by some of the best walking trails in the region. The Mayor’s house - to the far left - was also regarded as one of the region’s best.
