About me:

Hello PMC!

I am Dyaris, and this is the first contest that I participate in.

First of all, I apologize for my English, cause it isn’t my mother language.

I am an engineer of mining and energies, specialized in natural resources, fuels, energy efficiency and explosives.

I live in a town, and also I use to work in the farmland in the harvest seasons (is not my job, I’m still studying more =D)

This is why I decided to participate, I want to show you the idea I had, and how I manage the building and map making process. I tried to explain some formulas and equations and reasons of why or why not the city must work, have or be.

I hope you like and could understand all the map. If any questions, please leave a comment!

Thanks =D

About the map:

The thing to do is to think and answer some questions.

First of all, how many people could live in a determinated terrain? How many animals are needed to produce milk, meat, eggs etc for those people? How many electric and thermic energy is needed fot those persons depending on factories, production and way of living?

Well, all these questions depends on many factors:
  • How many people is the town composed.
  • Terrain capable of producing vegetal food. Type of solid.
  • Terrain for produce animal food.
  • Terrain for wood and tree repopulation
  • Water precipitations
  • Wind speed.
  • Population number
  • Health
  • Temperature
  • And more...

I choose a normal island, this is better way to show how this is totally auto-sustainable.

It's climatic characteristics seems to Italians ones... but as green as Ireland.

I choose a little group of people of more less 100 people. The population is capable to grow in years.


Total island area: 58.000.000m2 (58km2)

Non-rocky area: 35.000.000m2 (35km2)

Average wind speed: 7m/s

Main wind direction: South to North

Average wind hours per year: 5000hours

Wind density= 1,2kg/m3

Average solar hours per year: 3500

Average precipitations-evaporation per year= 1200mm(1,2m3 per m2)

Water catchment area of the reservoir=8km2… so 9600m3 per year

Upper reservoir capacity=320.000m3

Down reservoir capacity=25.000m3

Average temperature in year: 15º (celsius)

Maximum and minimum temperature in a year= 45-0º (celsius)

So sorry to read that. I know i'm not the best builder in pmc, but i can assure you that this is the most accurate and real sustainable city project.
May i need to remember you the purpouse of this contest which is the planning of a "Sustainable City" and not "Make Just an Epic and Big Building".
Don't panic my friend, i'm not the winner of the contest, i'm just one of the 50 finalist from 81 submisions... if you see all the 81 submisions as judges did, you wouldn't say this is unfair.
Hope you like my other maps and my future work.
Thank you for your comment.

Dat way to long description cramped with tons of details. Ever thought about using spoilers?
Anway this 'city' feels more like an valley suited for a city than actually being a city.

Diamond for the description fellow contestant!

I know this is not as big as a city. That is why i allways mention it as a town in the description.
Long description is necesary to show how it works, because it's not a real town, just some fixed 3D blocks.
I might not be as big as beijing, but it is fully sustainable, and this is the real topic of the contest.
Thank you!
