    Since we're getting quite close to the MMO server being ready, it's about time to choose the first city which we'll be living in on the main server. This city will likely NOT be wiped as we transition into the stable period, assuming that the economy doesn't somehow completely break down in some way due to a bug or exploit.

    Choose wisely, this decision has a lot of weight! Personally, I think the cities with the most verticality and most detail are the most interesting (sharp mountains!), but it's up to you guys to decide.

    The chosen city will be modified to add roads, interesting features and maybe even change up the terrain a little.

    • Group 1 - Group 2 - Group 3
    • Final 9 (best 3 out of each)
    • Final 3 (single vote for winner)

    Voting for this round will close on the 11th October, 03:00 BST.

    To see what all of the cities look like, go here:

    Alphaville and East Jerome are not included as options! This is because alphaville's vertex colours are broken (and were in TSO...), and East Jerome just looks plain ugly in engine.

    Was going to vote Shannopolis but it's not on the list lol
    edit- i just realised the link goes to the unused cities and that's why none of them were on the list lmao, you gotta scroll up.

    For me I'm picking dan's grove, calvin's creek and jolly pines but I like dan's grove the most because I love the 2 little lakes :p

    You need to vote on all 3 groups! They'll be combined down into the final poll later on.

    I like the way Test Center looks, even though I have never had a chance to play tso. Compared to the other cities doesn't this one provide less buildable area? Like most of the city is covered in water.

    I think it's better that the place is more interesting in general. Note that no matter which city is chosen, I'll be changing it to add roads and make some areas have more interesting landscapes.

    I agree with Dan's Grove. But Blazing Falls would be my second.

    Nearly all cities look worse in engine compared to the pics. We should vote with real pics, not the shiny previews on that page.

    Without real pics its not a fair vote because people could be disappointed. I was really excited about East Jerome, it looks great on preview and ugly as city.

    eh but you can't vote for East Jerome anyways...

    My point was, people could be disappointed because all cities look (a little bit) worse in engine than on the preview pics.

    Some cities in TSO use a scaling on the vertex colour to make them appear the correct colour. These modifiers will be applied to the final cities to make them look more like the preview result (also our old engine is really bad at shading) and I'll likely make screenshots with them for the next round of voting. This vote is mostly for a general shape kind of things.

    East Jerome was not included because it is unfixable.
