Welcome to Portland, Simcity. Another fully decorated neighborhood, this time based upon a request by RoccoClassique. Like Carnen this 'hood is also built with many of Criquettes decorations. Not all of them are required, but as this hood is landscaped to incorporate these decorations some parts will look odd without some of them.

Portland is, like many towns, built around the river. The river itself isn't as travelled as it used to be, but thanks to the highway and railroad Portland still is an important transportation hub for the area. The many tramlines are also a great way to travel and commute into Simcity. Down by the river you'll find the embankments, a popular place for the sims to walk and relax, especially on the lower levels close to the water.

Best viewed with a neighborhood view mod.

Portland was requested as a downtown to Carnen, but this download is a main neighborhood like Pleasantview. I did this to make it easier to share. If you want to have this as a subhood (downtown, shopping district, etc) you can use Mootildas HoodReplace program. This is very easy to do.



To install: Take the N157 folder located in the .rar and place it in your Neighborhoods folder. Make sure you have the cc you need before opening the neighborhood. Otherwise they won't appear. You need to download the decorations yourself, as custom content can't be packaged with neighborhoods, and are therefore not included.

Here is the CC used: (Not included)

Ultimate Railway Set
Modest Embankment Set
Cruise Terminal Set
Athletic Fields Set
Basic Tramway Set
