- Cities XXL 2015NicaumeneeHello folks! After months of planning and playing, I present to you the City of Nicaumenee (IPA: nˈɪkəmˌɛniː)!
Maybe I start with some background. You can skip it if you want, but then don't complain later
Having built Arenzano, my Italian city, I realized that for the next city, I would have to cut some plans if I ever wanted to finish the city. With new modifications released by @Drazicdesign, the wish arose to build an American city, albeit I have never been there. On the one hand, I did not want to build a coastal city, on the other hand, I did not want to build on a fully covered map. Thus I chose the Island Bor map by @ronrn to build a lake city on. With all the islands I added, it still has become a challenge, even though the larger portions of the map are filled.
My idea was to "replace" the city of Manitowoc in Wisconsin (USA), by a midsized metropolis having a population of around 400,000 citizens, and of about 800,000 inhabitants within the proper metropolitan area.
Here an overview, the districts are presented in the updates
In the foreground, you can see the interchange between I-43 (running from left to right) and I-343 (running up to the island).
Overview & first introduction
Downtown (in the central background), Barren Hill (on the upper left side), St. Mary's (in the center), Bridgend (in the upper right part), Timmerman (in the lower left part), and Sherman Park (on the lower right side):
You can spot the interchange of I-43 (from central left to central right) with I-243 (from lower left to central right), and I-541 (from the lower center upwards towards Bridgend).

In the foreground, you can spot the Pyramid Convention Center, built in the late 1980s. It's a multifunctional building, hosting convention rooms, a hotel, as well as a casino.
You can also spot the Sherman Park Tunnel that was built in the late 1990s to connect the previously highly separated parts of the district:
There have been calls to change the current accesses, as the ramps are quite short. This would inevitably lead to a reduction in lanes of the main highway.

There's been a handful of donations which help a little but more regular donations are needed if this site is to stay alive.
I know it's tough for everyone but if you can spare a little it would be awesome.
P.S. Once again a big huge thanks to the last donations!
