I was looking at some stuff by Timothy J. Reynolds just now, and I could imagine Citybound going somewhere like that with its graphics eventually:



Is that a modelling of the Canada Line Skytrain split in Northern Richmond? I seem to recognize that exact setup of rail, elevated and the river. All its missing is the casino.

I'm glad you've finally heeded to my wisdom about abstracted systems, I still worry you're focusing too much on graphics though. That's time that could be put into more accurate statistics.

Well, north Texas continues the trend really. Edmonton has a 3700 sq mile metro and is actually slightly less dense than even Houston.

By slightly less you mean half the density right?

I was going to mention how St. John's, NL is an utter failure of a city due to a pathological fear of density: Terrible parking availability, a large sprawl of copy pasted suburbs, a decaying urban core, and terrible public transporation. It's comparable to Houston's density, but with about 200k people...

Then I checked the 'Edmonton Capital Region' after your post and felt really sad for you. Oh well, at least you have a city that's less cruddy at the center of that Metro.

A fair bit of it comes from the city of Edmonton itself pulling rear end covers for places like Sherwood Park.

E: "Hey, time to pay up, we're gonna amalgamate you now."
SP: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
