People might have followed my topic Small town. That town has been removed and is being replaced by a new little city. Yesterday I went to pick up all of my old Lego from my parents' place and now I'm building a new city on my table.

Here's the layout I came up with.

Most of the buildings from my other topic will be installed in this city, but there is plenty of room for other buildings.
Anyone got any sugestions?
Next on my list are:
-Sail 'n fly marina
-Clothing store
-Police Station

Can I assume this is going to be old school classic town built city 'Deen' ? :wink:
It's going to be impressive, might I suggest an old Shell service station either the 1254/1255/1256 1999 combination or earlier 6378, 6371 or my old favorite 377  (:wub:) ! :grin:
Keep going 'Deen' and Brick On ! :grin:

I'm trying to keep the classic feel while still making it big and impressive. I don't own a Shell service station unfortunately, though I do own the 6397 Octan station. The Sail 'n Fly marina has been put together. Pics will follow soon.

Well that is also a nice and highly detailed servo and I can't wait for Sail'n'Fly marina to be shown along with your other builds.....oh, don't forget a fire station and post office too ! :wink:

Update

Spent some of my sunday building the marina and some other things. I know it isn't the right sign for the pizzeria, but I was unable to locate the real one today (don't know were I left it yesterday).

Enjoy!

'deen' that's looking real good right now, it's progressing along nicely. I didn't know Octan make pizza's ! :laugh:
Goodness, you found a use for those parts from that crappy bank set of the late 90's...you forgot an ATM though, but still it looks perfect with what I'm assuming is a vehicle workshop (a rollerdoor behind the arch section would be perfect. Don't forget their interiors, 'deen' ! :wink:
I look forward to your next update, and Brick On ! :grin:

I need your oppinion people. I came up with a new layout. The advantage of this new layout is that the buildings at the side of the road will be easily interchangeable as there will not be any buildings standing on the road plates. There are 2 things i don't like about it. It's green and it's a less dynamic layout. What do you guys think?

This is amazing!
I love the old school town sets and it kind of reminds me of LEGO Island.
The Pizza place at the dock is great!

I think the first road layout was better. It has more play potential for swooshing, (If you can do that with cars and buses?) and it is not green. The crodd roads would be OK if you could then add some more roads to make it more playable in a driving around way, but if you have limited space I'd stick with the first one. But that is just me, others may disagree with just as legit reasons for their own views.

By the way, is that a little Blacktron ship sitting ontop of that building?

With a grain of salt...I'll offer my thoughts.

I preferred the previous layout within the town proper better.  This new layout seems to lack "flow" for lack of a better word.  the round-about concept is good, but having a few buildings on each arm doesn't work in my minds eye.  Unless you plan on adding some additional road plates to better connect the town together.  the green isn't as much an issue, if keeping with the traditional town style, since most everything came on green base plates, but again, that comes down to personal preference.

In the end, does it make you happy?  The coast line has come together really nicely, so I'm sure whatever you decide will be fine.

The small post office got upgraded! It's based on the town hall from the Town Plan set. I still need to add the interior and some nice flowers outside.

The sign will be replaced as soon as I find the original sign.
