Great couples of update Dustin! New development looks good.
I'll take a quiet life... A handshake of carbon monoxide.

Nice update!  The presence of all those parks and plazas makes it look like a particularly pleasant city center.
Find my power line BAT thread here.
Check out the Noro Cooperative.  What are you waiting for?  It even has electricity.

Here are some rural power lines.

Hi Dustin, :)

Nice, original and inspiring new urban layout.  &apls




We'll visit here again when the expansion plans are finalized and construction begins.


Hope to see that area again indeed… with traffic on roads and the marathonians crowd on plazas and sidewalks. :thumbsup:

Most of all, that’s comforting to see a veteran coming back, we can feel how much you love the game and how much you missed it - free time becomes a luxury - so, the pandemic has finally some bright sides.  ::)

Take care. ;)

C.

UPDATE LXII
Tonight, I'll Be on That Hill!
Part I: Remembrance

22 October 2020

Hello all!

So, we're back here with a proper update in Marathon! Today, we're going to take a look at the northeastern tip of Marathon Island—and a hill that sits atop it, actually...



Surrounding the hill is the an older neighborhood in Marathon, known as Brothers & Sisters (Frères & Sœurs in French). It's named this because all of the streets in the neighborhood are named after Saints of the Catholic Church, both male and female.

The avenue that splits at the foot of the hill is Boulevard-de-la-Croix-de-Fer, which is named after the hill itself, which is the Col de la Croix-de-Fer, or "Hill of the Iron Cross." (I'm a big fan of the Tour de France, hence borrowing the name of one of the climbs...)

It is atop this hill that we're going to develop today, and in keeping with the saintly theme, the first thing we're going to build is...



...a cemetery! Appropriate for Halloween, right?

Anyway, here's another section...



...and another...




...and also, a mausoleum at the foot of the hill.

We keeping growing (boy, people are dying to get into this place, aren't they!?)...







Until we have this:



Fill in the blank tiles and we're now here...



Before we go further up the hill, let's go around it for a second...







...with a walking path, which follows the northeastern edge of the hill. We'll skip over the large slope for now and add more pathway...



Until we come back and think about what we're going to do with the rest of this hill. First, we'll add some more walkways and...



...a small market area. I know what you're thinking, "A market in a cemetery? That's a little strange, isn't it?" Well, I suppose it is, but stay with me! Next, we climb...



...the stairs and we are at the top of the hill. So, now what? Well, first, we'll fill in the blank spots.



And then...



...welcome to autumn on the Col de la Croix de Fer! Still, it seems like something is missing. What about, maybe a...



...cathedral? The Cathédrale de la Croix de Fer, to be exact! Here it is in autumn—



And spring—



I'll leave with a few shots of the cathedral and the hill for now, I hope you enjoy it!











But what about this slope?



Yes...what about that? Maybe that's what Part 2 is for?

Hope everyone is doing well!

See you soon!

now that is a big graveyard! great job

Regarding the slope, here in Portugal we like make stairs cases out of them, so the faithful may climb them as an act of faith..  If you google images of " Bom Jesus Braga" or "Lamego Senhora dos Remédios" you will understand what I mean  :D

I must say I was not expecting a cemetery there.
Still great spot for xannepan's Antwerp Cathedral!
