Spring Comes to Halls Crossing

 
Just a short break from Flower Show. It's Saturday, my zombie day, and today was worse than usual. I've really done nothing except play the TrainStation game.

However, I have come a long way since I last showed you my town at level 49 when I had three streets (see link below to Zombieland). I now have five, the most you can get. But you can keep sprawling sideways (for a price, of course). I'm now at level 187! You can click to see it larger.



I've kept the polar themed background all winter. But it seemed like time for the snow to melt. However, I couldn't find a theme they offered that I liked for my town of Halls Crossing. But I did finally locate one that has an agricultural theme (OK, it has a castle too. It's Bavaria, but it has fields and hills, and some other picky details too pedantic to explain). Yes, the green is too bright, but that's what it is.

The game almost forces you into becoming a large city because of the kinds of buildings and rewards they give. But I'm working hard to remain a small farm town. Urban growth and manufacturing have come to one sector, but its roots will remain agricultural as long as I can generate enough passengers to stay in the game. So far so good.

You'll notice the farms and vineyards on the right side. And the turn-of-the-twentieth-century downtown area is still the core of commerce.

So, at Halls Crossing it's suddenly summer!



In the real world it was sunny but cold. If I'd felt halfway human I might have taken a walk. As it was, I barely got out of bed.
