I really want to build on those mountains just outside my city borders. The roads north and west are about as close to the edge of the city limits as possible, but man that terrain just outside the border looks so unique. I much prefer working with something like that opposed to the flat masses that most plots are.
Added 5 more photos showing various angles of the unused area's just outside city limits. Not sure about everyone else but I see such a unique city with various elevations, tunnels, varying levels of density and wealth, access to the coast as well as rail while having mountainous terrain..
I kind of depressed myself taking those last 5 images because I feel like my creativity is stifled by my limitations. Actually I know it is.

I can't help but see opportunities that I can't create. I want to tunnel through that mountain and build a ferry on that small land.

You actually want to build city focused around the terrain instead of conveniently right next to it? Yeah, the day the SimCity series has challenged based on the terrain will be days... from past games... I guess. --- Omega Gastroid Symbol of Xavion Might

I miss the terrain tool and building anywhere on the map I wanted. I guess it's been longer than I thought since I bought a SimCity game prior to this one. Either way I'm still enjoying this one. It pisses me off at times but it's got something that draws me in. Always enjoyed cartography and level design so maybe that's it.
