Manukau and the University of Manukau. A City Grows Up. Also Rocket Lab?

Fees Free start attracting students, also a school bus

The University of Manukau based in the district called Manukau University Town has been operational for half an academic year and I must say is performing well. The University can house 5,000 students but given it has only been open for six months (and I had to disable the Hadron Collider (cheat for education)) having 315 students is a good start.

The University is fees free and has a sports team as well (swimming). Given the University was built around Manukau University Town and University Estates (basically student accommodation using the King Leno University content pack) I would say things are going well.

So let’s take a look at both districts on a school bus:

Looking at how Manukau looks in general at sundown and night from the University:

Finally it seems Manukau is indeed on the up – firing rockets:

Up next: the Rapid Transit Network!

Another day and another step for Cim-kind

A small post today but as I said in the last post today we will be looking at a rocket launch in San Layton City.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Rockets are launched for the San Layton Rocket Centre on San Layton Point. It was meant to be a Soyuz rocket but the game glitches out and reverts to a Saturn V rocket if you save and quit the game while the rocket is on the pad. Bit annoying but one the Mod community is working on.

To build the rocket you need heavy industry and ore extraction industry in your city or at least a connection to the outside to import the materials. Once the rocket is built and on the pad you of course need fuel from the oil industry or again the ability to import it.

The rocket centre is connected by rail and road to both the heavy industrial complexes and the port allowing for quick assembly and fuelling of the rocket. And yes the place is abuzz with tourists on launch day. Looking at the above shots it was a very perfect day no matter where you were in the City.

Next launch is in two weeks and hotel space is limited so be in quick!

Hopefully we won’t need Thunderbird 3 ­čśë
