Wyvern Pass is a map that comes with the Cities: Skylines Financial Districts DLC.
It’s one of the most visually striking among the official maps, and features striking plateaus and canyons. Rivers intersect near the center of the map.
In the northwest of this map you’ll find a lake and waterfalls, while in the southwest the river flows out into open water.
Most of the map’s buildable land is on the various plateaus, which can make for a really interesting cityscape if you build with the terrain.
Your starting tile is taken up almost entirely by a large plateau.
A segment of the river runs along the entire east of your starting tile, providing a convenient early water source and fishing location.
There is strong wind all along the cliffs that will allow you to maximize a starting wind turbine (8MW).
All four types of external connections are available on this map: highway, railway, ship, and air.
The highway is found in the western part of the map.
Meanwhile, the railway is in the east, and it can be accessed as soon as you purchase the tile east of your starting tile.
There’s also a fantastic looking railway bridge that spans a river and connects two plateaus.
The external ship connection is in the open water in the southwest portion of the map.
However this isn’t very easily accessible, as you’ll need to expand out by at least three tiles in order to reach the connection.
As for air transport, the plateaus provide plenty of flat space for building airports.
This map has a good amount of natural resources, making it good for specialized industry districts (base game) and industry areas (Industries DLC) alike.
There’s a small patch of fertile land in your starting tile near the highway, and larger ones to the north and northeast. And then most of the forests are also on the plateau within your starting tile and just north of it.
There’s plenty of ore deposits scattered around the map, if you’re interested in an ore industry. These are mostly concentrated near the cliffs and craggy slopes.
And finally the oil locations are also in the ravines, and are in tiles next to your starting area.
Fishing (Sunset Harbor DLC)
All four fish types are available on this map: anchovy, salmon, shellfish, and tuna.
Anchovy, salmon, and tuna can be found in various parts of the river, and shellfish in the lake and open water.
The tile north of your first tile gives you more of your starting plateau with similar features. This makes it a great choice for early expansion.
Plus there’s also a section of the river in the north that you can access by expanding here as well.
You’ll also an abundance of fertile land, forest, and ore here. It’s really the perfect choice if you’re going for an early specialized industry start.
Half of the east tile is rocky slopes, but you’ll have plenty of space for building in the other half, which is rather flat.
This is a great early expansion option if you’re eyeing the railway connection, or the even larger swathes of land east or south of it.
Just south of your starting area you’ll find mostly craggy cliffs, and a small mesa surrounded by rivers.
While it’s a great-looking tile that can really add to the visual interest of your build, the rough terrain is probably not the best choice for your early expansion.
The tile west of your starting area gives you some flat land as well as rocky slopes that lead down to the river.
There’s plenty of ore here as well as a patch of oil, so it’s a good location for your industry.
You’ll also have access to a small section of the external highway connection here.
