Guess who is back, guys?  :D

1. Sodesund is a district of Sheford located west of city centre and railway. Building of Sodesund conssist mainly of townhouses built at the beginning of 20th century, block of flats from 70s and some new apartment houses. Furthermore in this area are located some factories and warehouses. Sodesund is connected with city centre by two overpasses over railways and one rail crossing. In the district is also located station of Urban Rail System.

2. Home - estates located in Sodesund are intended mainly for poorer middle classs and students of situated nearby Sheford Economic University, Price of single apartment here is approximately 150 000 - 200 000 NRP.

3. Home - estate called "The New Gardens" is most expensive and most prestigious in Sodesund. Construction of those apartament buildings was finished in 2005, estate is property of Wennerstroem Group. Here lives some lecturers and proffesors from the Economic University and also some employees of the corporations from city centre.

4. Home - tenements situated in Sodesund are first, which you can see if you come to Sheford city centre from western suburbs of the city. Before 2009 it was a ghetto of illegal immigrants, and this part of Sodesund was very dangerous place after dark. In years 2009 - 2010 tenements were revitalized and police carried out an action against local gangs and illegal immigrants. Currently those tenements are popular with students and artist. Anyway in this part of Sodesund still live many immigrants from Russia and Baltic countries, who are staying in Goverland legally.

5. Home - on this picture you can see contrast of two worlds. In the left is rich estate, on the right there are poorer townhouses, tenements and warehouses. Nonetheless Sodesund is still relatively safe district. However going out alone after midnight is still bad idea.

6. Transport - Western Railway Line is a border between city centre and Sodesund. Everyday many citizens of this disrict rides a train to their workplace in other parts of city. Also Franzgatan and overpass over railway is important way, which connects Sodesund and western suburbs of Sheford with city centre and Financial district.

7. History - Before restructuring of industry, which took place in Goverland in 80s Sodesund was typical industrial district. That's why between elder buildings are located new estates. Formerly on plots, where are now located apartament houses, were industrial plants, demolished in 80s and 90s.

8. Workplace - warehouses located nearby Sheforder Western Central Station during the day are workplace for many citizens of Sodesund. However after dark it isn't a smart idea to venture between warehouses. Some people say, that one of them is a property of people connected with Sheforder Mafia...

9. Education - Sheford Economic University was founded in 1895 by few bussinesmen from Sodesund. Currently it is one of most prestigious Economic University in Scandinavia and whole Europe.

Awesome comeback  &apls &apls  Btw, welcome back!

You really do a great job with all those green spaces and the selection of W2W buildings is perfect! I like that tall corner building in the middle of pic 4 in particular. The trains, trams, and roads look great as well though I'd suggest you try RRW for your rails. Looking forward to more  :thumbsup:


Sheford city centre - the end
It is three years and four months since I started creating Sheford, the first and the biggest city of well-known Goverland. Today the work is ended and the central part of Sheford is finally finished. Of course I still have to work on suburbs, but the core of the city is ready. I'd like to invite you to a journey around Sheford. Enjoy!

Nice presentation, the map is great too!  :thumbsup:

Despite the w2w blocks the city still is quite spacious in its lay-out, I like that. A job well done, though I've to ask: is a city ever really 'finished'?!  ;)  &apls

See the all-new National Capital Region!:http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=15118.0


Boy, that was a substantial update! ;D And a marvelous one at that, too! Really interesting to see the overviews, that shows off how well the different districts sort of weave into each other. :thumbsup:

Spotted a detail (well, the that's where the devil always is, isn't it? ::)) though, in pic 22: there are no overhanging embankment pieces under the road bridge - is there a particular reason as to why?

All in all, that's a splendidly executed city, and now I'm eager to see the suburbs!
Come join me on a hike to St Edmea!

Congratulations!!! &apls  I like everything!! I like the old formerly-walled-but-today-not-so-much city core, the XIX-century city and the modern residential developments. Everything looks well planned and coherent!!  :thumbsup:


Congratulations on finishing your great central city! It's really turned out well. I do tend to see things vortext's way though, somehow my cities are never quite "finished" ;)  You've done a great job with the variety of different areas here and I'm looking forward to seeing more from the surrounding suburbs  :thumbsup:


Fantastic images, a really attractive ad well executed city. The night images are particularly lovely also.
