Description
It's another vanilla map with a creative name! XD This one has a 25 square area that has some more variation in terrain than Vanilla Coast.

Hydro Dam system and tested. See image here for instructions, you will find guidelines for where to place the dam.
4x all connections
The terrain in the heart of the map has several different elevations of leveled land, with gradual, sloped transitions between each level for a natural look. Only the slope to the shoreline is steep but is still relatively smooth

If you'd like the start square's traffic circle highway exit, you can find it here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1277038290
On that listing are some explanations of why traffic does some weird things on these circles, with strategies on how to reduce (non modded) or eliminate (modded) the impact of strange vehicle behavior on them, which helps to keep the traffic flowing quickly as originally when you started your city. To understand vehicle AI, read up here on the wiki and a brief youtube tutorial. It helped me go from traffic mayhem to traffic heaven:

Not what you're looking for? No problem! Check out BonBonB's "What Map?" series where he reviews maps. You*ll get to see some maps from map makers you might not have heard of yet, or some up and coming map maker stars, so it's well worth taking a look! :) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOdJfwm1gxph00eeu9X6nvEWQEEFsX_e3

This map has 75% neighbor traffic re routed. You'll start to see some neighbor traffic once you've expanded a little

You have to wait a little longer for highway traffic to reach you. There's a system in many of my maps that redirects some or all of the neighbor to neighbor traffic away from your start square. This is to prevent the horrible traffic overload on many maps where you're loaded up with traffic from the very beginning inside your start square, with four connections of traffic overloading your start square highway.

Where's the highway with the cars?

Awesome! Glad you found one for you! With the number of maps published at this point, it's got to be a daunting task. Happy building! :chirp:

Your wish is my command! :steamhappy: It's already done :D One of my first maps, Emerald Coast, which I just updated this year. The highland lake and water fall powers a 1600 MW dam (the highest possible). Instructions on how and where to build that dam setup are in the images. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=436271210

u could make another map with mountains and such. have a huge mountain with a huge lake in it and a waterfall/downsteep stream. idk. just ideas

True, Great Wolf, that would be functionally better. This time, I tried to keep things at as realistic a height as possible for such a low-lying valley. A map where the buildable area is set above a river that tumbles down a canyon is the most ideal for high powered, tall dams. That would mean no easily accessible coastline (if you're sticking to realistic topography). These thoughts clutter my head :D
I've not tried it before, but I imagine you might want to see if you can make your own version of the hydro dam inside asset editor, and just bump up the electricity production number. I do that for example with elementary schools because otherwise you have to place crazy numbers of elementary schools.

if only we had a bigger dam at a higher heght..
