Roslyn Peninsula is a map from the Cities: Skylines Campus DLC.
This map features flat lands flanked by sea on one side and a striking mountain range on the other.
The map’s terrain presents a fun challenge when it comes to building around the mountains and irregular coastlines.
Meanwhile, the map has well-designed external highway and railway connections that offers you flexibility in creating your various districts.
- Scenic mountain range
- Interesting coastlines
- Extensive external highway and railway built in
You start in the valley with a river to the north, the mountains to the east, and several islands and open water to the west.
Your starting tile is mostly flat land.
It has some fertile land in the southwest, and forest towards northwest and east if you want specialized industry in the early game.
Water and Power
The river runs across the entire northern part of this tile.
Although there is wind in most of this tile, only near the river is where you’ll find wind strong enough to maximize your wind turbine for electricity (8MW).
Bear in mind that your starting highway connection is in the southern part of the tile. This means depending on where you want to place your first zones, you’ll have to spend a little more on either road or water pipes and power lines to serve it.
This map has all four external connection types (highway, railway, ship, and air).
The highway connections extend to the south of the starting tile.
There’s also a highway and railway route going through a pass between the mountains, and along the other side of the range.
If you extend two tiles east from the starting tile, you’ll find a railway connection ending in a set of parallel tracks next to an abandoned train station, which can make for an interesting detail.
The ship external connection is in the west, and only requires one tile expansion to access (the tile west of your starting area).
There is also plenty of flat land for building airports with ease.
You can find a couple fish here for a fishing industry, if you’re interested in that.
- You’ll find anchovies near all of the coastlines
- You’ll also find salmon in the rivers
- There is shellfish as well, but it is much farther out from shore
There is no tuna on this map.
Roslyn Peninsula provides a decent amount of resources for your specialized industry zones or industry areas (Industries DLC).
All four natural resource types (fertile land, forest, ore, and oil) are present here.
With that said, there are just are a few small patches of fertile land, including one that’s accessible from your starting tile.
The thickest area of forest is also in your starting tile and the tile east of it.
Ore is a little sparse and most of it is located on the mountains. There is, however, a small area of ore in the tile south of the starting tile (conveniently near the highway).
Most of the map’s oil is undersea, although there is a small part of the peninsula just southwest of the starting tile that might be ideal for your oil industry area.
Expanding one tile north from your starting area gives you a larger part of the estuary, plus a nice amount of buildable land across the river, and a portion of the northern island.
East of your starting area you’ll get the mountain range and a longer segment of the river.
There’s also more forest resource here if you’re interested in a forestry industry.
The tile south of your starting area gives you more of your highway connection, including the junction that links it to the highway that runs from the southwest to southeast.
This is also the tile with the patch of ore resource next to the highway.
The tile west of your starting area gives you the entirety of the western peninsula.
From there you’ll be able to connect to the external ship route.
