Creating a themed city in Cities Skylines
With Grand City of Solaria (see: https://www.twitch.tv/palpatine001) I decided to go for a theme. So using some assets and the European Theme I went for a rather interesting blend of: Soviet/British Nuclear Steampunk with a dash of German Zeppelins thrown in.
How did I go? I think we are getting there with mid rise buildings, the massive Tribune, Monorail and of course atomic power – all things theorised in those books in the 1950’s.
In the end though there is something about the massive central Tribune backed by atomic cooling towers with Zeppelins flying everywhere that gives the City a unique feel.
You can see some of the work below.
Getting around the City is straight forward with bus, metro rail, Zeppelin or Helicopter. If Active Modes are your thing there is a network of Bike Super Highways criss-crossing the majority of the City and they are very well patronised. Of course power generation is 100% Green with either Atomic or Hydro Power providing juice to the City.
The question is would I live in this City? I think I would!
