Let's Play Cities: Skylines

Help me create a thriving city!


Our new city is called Westdale.


Before we begin construction, I have a few questions for you. Please leave your answer in the comments below!


Should our city be built on a grid? Or should it have winding, meandering roads?


Do we use mostly renewable energy? Or do we go with the cheap and easy coal?

Let me know below!

Which game would you like to see as a SSLP?

Which game should I do next as a Screenshot Let's Play? 

I'm considering the following, which would you prefer to see?

1. Autonaughts- A game in pre-pre-pre alpha. You can learn more about it here, but here's a summary for you: 

"In this basic world you will find earth, sand, sea, fresh water, clay, rock, trees and cereal - and the resident folk, who are content to sit around in the buff, doing nothing.

And speaking of nothing, that's exactly what you start with. But from these humble beginnings you can build and automate an entire civilisation. Well, you can when the game's further along; for now you can only start a forestry and cereal farming, and provide shelter and food for the folk.

You can also make and teach robots how to do anything you can do, which is aces."

2. Kynseed- Kynseed is only in its prototype stage and we are unable to save a long term game. This game is very similar to Stardew Valley or Harvest Moon, but it promises more...realism? detail? I'm not sure. Let's find out together.

3. Cities: Skylines- Let's build a city together...we'll keep tabs on our favorite residents, I'll take suggestions on buildings, street names, etc...

4. Stardew Valley- Let's farm together! Help me decide what skills to try for, what to focus on in life, who to get to know better and what crops to grow.

5. Planet Coaster- Let's build an amusement park!

6. Project Highrise- How about a highrise tower instead?!

7. Renowned Explorers: International Society- Follow a team of adventurers as they try to win the top spot in the Explorer's society. Help me choose where they go, what skills they use, and how they handle encounters.

8. Prison Architect- Let's build us a prison!

9. Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles- Join me as we run around collecting cats and completing quests.

SSLP: Yonder- The Cloud Catcher Chronicles!

Welcome to my Screenshot Let's Play of the new released game for PC and PS4, Younder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.

I confess, I did do a bit of playing with out you....I was really excited and needed to get it out of my system!

I tried to as closely match my real self as possible.

I think I am re-reading a letter that must have been left with me as a small child. Oh, my poor parents. I wonder if I will get to see them again?

Ooo.....shiny magical compass. Yes, well, the day has come my darling parents! I will set out now to find my destiny.

This sounds like a very long journey, I must say. I think I will manage.

Home? I'm headed home. Wonder if anyone will know who I am?

*Gasp* I'm already on a boat! Looks like I am well on my way there. Look at those lovely sails. Did I help make this boat? The water is so calm and lovely. How could anything possibly go wrong!

This. is. an. adorable. boat. Look at my lantern! Ah, this is so peaceful.

Ah, Jib. Our delightful cook. I hope you were hired for your position based on your talent and not on your gender. Also, isn't it called a galley? Maybe that's just where we eat?

Yes, good man Luff! Get us ready to land! How exciting! Do you have a man bun? I think you do.

I wonder that as well, Tack. Also, I must say I think we've been on this boat too long as I find you quite striking. Are you a marriage candidate? Oh, wrong game. Well, if that changes, let me know.

What's our status Captain? I hope that's the only thing behind the fog!

This looks ominous!

Oooooooohhhhhh nooooooo.............Jib, Captain, Luff and my handsome Tack, I hope we meet again......

Okay. Clearly I'm dead.

Everyone makes such a big deal out of my magical compass.

Maybe, I'm not dead.....Captain? Tack? Luff? Jib? Anybody? Hello?

Sigh. I guess I will explore this cave. Oh, look a stone. That might be handy. I guess I'll put that in my backpack...which I might add is way larger on the inside than it looks. What's this blue sparkly thing?

AHHHHHHH!!!!!! What the heck are you?!? Awww.....well, I don't want to be alone anymore either. So, sure, come along.

Yes, let us see how heavy we can make my backpack. I think this stone is larger than my backpack. But it fits, with plenty of room to spare. I must have a magical bag to match my magical compass.

There was some mysterious and sinister looking purple shadowiness blocking our passage out. Thankfully, Lumie was able to clear it. Apparently, Sprites are magically talented in this way.  It exhausted poor Lumie. Lumie explained that if we found his lost brother and sister sprites they could clear the patches of "murk" as he called it more easily. Alright then Lumie, priority one: find more sprites.

Wow......this is so pretty.....I'm just going to stand here for a few minutes.....

Lumie is telling me that we need to get some help in Fairmont. Sigh...it's true...my clothes are tattered, I'm thirsty, and I can't remember last time I ate. I could sure use some of Jib's cooking right now.....And night is falling and I need a place to sleep.

By the time I approach the town, it's already well past nightfall.


Still, a very friendly man named Master Low gives me food and shelter for the evening.

He also gives me clothes, and the names of a few people who might be interested in helping me further. I am so grateful.

Thanks for reading Day 1! If you enjoyed this and want to see Day 2 be sure to comment and let me know!
