FDNY EMS Ambulances Hit the Streets of SimCity

The standard SimCity ambulances have gotten a New York makeover. Thanks to Triborough from Simtropolis for re-skinning Swampper77's ambulances.

You can download them on the STEX here. Enjoy!

In the future I will be releasing a New York automata mod so be on the look out for that.

NYCJ Recap

In case you've missed an update or two or are just joining us here are some highlights from last year. To read about the project see my first post.

In July I debuted the recreation with breaking news of the Townhouse explosion on the Upper East Side.

Than after getting a glimpse of Madison Square Garden we took a trip to historic Governor's Island.

Then, late in July we took a look back at the various versions of New York in SimCity through the ages.

In September the NYCJ remembered the 9/11 attacks.

In October we hop on the tram to trip to Roosevelt Island.

In November we finished up our tour of New York's lesser known islands by taking a trip to Randall's, Wards and Rikers Island. To celebrate Thanksgiving we saw the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade stream down Broadway.

December was an active month with holidays, Dave Letterman and more.
