Patrician City was Patricius Maximus's first attempt at a CJ. It can be divided into three phases; The Original Region, Diversification, and the Storyline phase.

Original Region

In the first few pages of Patrician City, Patricius showed the parent region, Patrician City. As shown at right, the region was one of PM's earliest, and displayed a characteristic newcomer appearance. But, from the outset it showed potential. The region had a population of around 300,000. There were still problems with it, chief among them mild weaving issues, and extensive use of cloverleafs. It did have it's areas of beauty, however, the foremost of them being the Delta Islands suburb district.

After this region was shown and dissected, Patricius moved on to "associate" regions.

Diversification

After the showing of a teaser of a snow-covered region (which Patricius never got around to developing), Patrician City moved on to a city in a volcanic region called Extraea. Extraea, though it had some of the same issues, was a step up from Patrician City. Some at-grade one-way road interchanges could be seen, as well as some farmland. There was labeling in the images, not unlike Nexis of Genesis, and it was Patricius's first use of the Cycledogg Tree Mod.

After the last region of this phase was shown, Patrician City would soon develop a storyline of its own.

Storyline

The first act of the storyline phase was the establishment of a colony on another nearby planet to the Patricians, Olympis Patius. It would prove to be a fateful establishment. The Emperor, and 10 other people, were en route to Olympis Patius to join the colony when a swarm of asteroids and meteors came out of space, pummeled the Patrician planet, and reduced it to molten sludge.

The Emperor and the remaining Patricians left Olympis Patius in search of a new habitable planet. They found one by the name of Darida, which was a desert planet. They quickly discovered a sapient species there, the Daridans. Their president, Aurius, displayed a strange curiosity of them, and the two species coexisted for 20 years.

Then, pressured by a stream of immigrants exiting his state for the Patricians, Aurius constructed a huge wall in the desert, and stated that anything crossing it would be shot down. Unfortunatly, a plane crossed the wall without knowledge of the proclamation, and was shot down by a missile.

The Patricians went to war. After a battle near the wall, the Patricians burst through, and went on a 3-day rampage throughout Darida. The Daridans surrendured after Aurius was killed by an aerial bombing.

The Patricians gained control of all of Darida.

Patrician City has been closed since then. Patricius himself has privately expressed desire to revamp and continue the story in the future.
