My self-made Siracuse attempt, not very good indeed because it is testing. Some luxury and medium palaces already in place, plebeans live in GI and LI + some shacks. Due to 0 % unemployment and almost ALL land already built the potential of further development is rather limited.
Another impressive city from an undescovered CB'ing talent. Very impressive to look at, I only wish I could build cities this "recklessly" (not trying to put everything into a handful of safe and secure loops and an absolute minimum of intersections). Very well done!
The use of elevated terrain with just-the-right-spaces for revervoirs/aquaducts is a very interesting idea.
Again, my only complaint is the over-use of crummy housing labor-draws and sticking in a few additional crummy neighborhoods where the pipes don't reach (I'd redesign a whole city from scratch to make sure everyone got pipe water access, but that's just me).

Thanks for such unexpected judgement. It is really not very good city, I think it could be much better.
And "crummy" houses is old and bad habit for sure, but I am afraid of food lack if this shacks will be upgraded because those "getto" regions usually are situated far from Granaries and other resources. I would be grateful to see your own version of this city if possible.
