|DLC Required||Sunset Harbor|
Fisher Enclave is a map from the Cities: Skylines Sunset Harbor DLC.
With only 45% buildable land, this map comprises a few large islands separated by wide rivers.
Two external highways run through the map and intersect near the middle. These provide a connection between the large islands and will play a huge role in how you build your districts.
Features such as the irregular coastlines and mountains make this a visually interesting map to play on – and this can make up for the limited available space.
Nearly half of your starting tile is water.
However, what land you do get is flat and suitable for building.
The starting highway connection, as well as a small section of the highway, is along the east edge of the tile.
There’s plenty of strong winds along the coastline for maximizing your early wind turbines (8MW).
This map gives you access to three out of the four possible external connections: highway, ship, and air. There is no external railway on the Fisher Enclave map.
The two main highway connections run through the map diagonally, converging at a cloverleaf junction just south of your starting tile.
These highways connect the large islands of the map, and will likely play a big role in your land use decisions.
The external ship route is located in the open water in the east. You can access this with just one expansion: the southeast corner of the tile east of your starting tile has just enough coastline to squeeze in a harbor.
As flat buildable land is somewhat limited on this map, make sure to plan ahead if you intend to have an airport (especially the larger custom airport areas from the Airports DLC).
All four natural resource types (fertile land, forest, ore, and oil) are available on this map.
However, ore is sparse.
Both fertile land and forest are fairly plentiful and scattered all across the map. You’ll find these two resources in your starting tile, as well as in each of the four tiles adjacent to it.
The larger concentrations of oil can be found farther away from the center of the map.
Only anchovies and shellfish are available on this map; there is no salmon or tuna.
You can find Anchovy near the coastlines, while shellfish can be found basically everywhere.
Of the four adjacent tiles, the north tile may be the most inconvenient for your first expansion. The reason is because you’ll need to build one or more bridges across the river to get people there.
The eastern tile contains a large amount of buildable land, including what appears to be a dried riverbed.
You’ll also get access to a long stretch of the highway here.
The southern tile also gives you lots of land.
Take note, however, that this tile contains stretches of both highway routes as well as the cloverleaf junction. This means you’ll be giving up that space for the roads.
You’ll also want to keep your residential zoning away from these highways as your citizens will be bothered by the noise.
The tile to your west contains lots of flat land, as well as a small lake towards the north.
Like the north tile, this one is also across the river – so you may want to build bridges to it from your starting area. However, this has a segment of the highway in it, which might prove useful as you continue to grow your city beyond your first tile expansion.
