A small, modular 80-residence layout providing 100% coverage of all public services (minus police station). This is good for production islands (workers are all you need if you slot trade union items that substitute Artisan/Engineer productions to use Worker workforce) as the layout is easily repeatable, and is compact enough to fit into small spaces.

Designed to be internally modular to fit desired class. Excellent coverage of all public buildings save for the fire houses, mind the gap. Squared to stack next to other cities, total pops. descend in class. I>E>A>W>F. Build along the outside edges then move to replace old public buildings for max pops. Made for medium to large islands.

So this city is a variant of the one Madaahk posted, it's a hybrid (Nature/Efficient) build mainly focused on reaching Engineers as soon as possible.

The city has full coverage of every service, it's not the most space effcient one (70%).

You should start by building the left half of the city, sustain it with the correct amount of farms (2). After you reached Workers on the inner square, you can start building the second half and upgrade them to Artisans.

This city won't make you alot of money.

A Tier V City layout which should fit on almost every big Island and is meant to be upgraded to 5940 Artisans (orange), 5120 Engineers (blue) and 11800 Investors (green) to be able to do the biggest Events in World's Fair. It has nearly complete coverage of all Services and Production Buildings can be placed next to the City-Streets to claim Power.

Note, that Marketplaces, (Police) and Pubs are no longer needed after upgrade and they should be replaced with Engineers.

A Tier 5 city layout with World's Fair. All houses are covered with full public services including electricity if all roads are upgraded to paved roads, although houses in the middle north and south has a slightly lower coverage of Fire Station. This layout is appliable on most big flat islands and technically expandable in the middle towards north and south if the shape of the island allows. Free spaces in four corners are designed for beautifying use but can also be utilized as spare residence area and can be upgraded to tier 3 due to the lack of electricity coverage. The cost of paved roads, railway tiles, residences upgrade and World's Fair construction is not included in construction cost.

A town made purely far Artisans, braided by parks and walkways. The yellow roads are pedestrian paths that run all around the town.

All buildings have Basic Needs and Luxury Needs fulfilled by the public buildings in the Town Centre, with good overlap from the 4 Town Halls.

The parks or the 3x3 residential blocks in the middle, can be replaced by more parks, or more residential blocks.

City Design perfect for everybody :) If you are a starter it will easly help you to get to 10k of Investors (required for highest tier for World Fair exhibitions) It has designed space for ZOO, Museum and World Fair. You can expend ZOO and Museum more to south to fill empty space or palce Botanic Garden. Police Stations should be placed next to the Fire Stations in case of any Riots. :) And don't forget that it has Power plant in the center of the City that will Get electricity to your Citizens and also to the World's Fair :)

Full layout of Crown Falls that I called Leiden Schaftlicht. Has 365 botanical modules and 50 museum modules to put all sets and give a maximum of attractiveness. All green tiles are trees or decorations that can be replaced by rails to add more oil powerplants if needed. White space is free for you to customize that layout. The palace can have up to 105 wings here, ensuring it can cover the whole island almost. Some public buildings like universities are kind of useless, except for aesthetics purpose. There are currently 99 decoration gardens from botanica DLC that are placed. Black lines are rail tracks. I didn't finished them to let you choose where to put the oil pier. I also didn't place the main warehouse for the same reason. I credit MaelstromByDesign for his incredible work on that crown falls borders map that I used.

Shown are two variations upon the same design.

Upper design is suitable for Explorers. The lower design has a post office added, making the entire design suitable for Technicians.

Player can choose whether to use the upper or lower placement of Arctic Lodges, regardless of population class. Placement of the twin Arctic Lodges on the lower design covers the most houses (54 out of 76, each covering 27), but the upper design places more house within the singular Arctic Lodge's Radius (41 out of 76).

Either way, the author doesn't consider the placement of Arctic Lodges as too crucial within this region's residential areas.
