Honestly when I was driving through Des Moines on 2 occasion...I felt like...I was driving a through another american city...It was a nice break from boring farms though


btw Des Moines means "The/Some/Any Monks (or Friars)" in French

Maybe you guys should consider the population size first. Obviously, a smaller population size city can't build many towers but for a city this size with this skyline definitely deserves a 10/10

pretty good skyline, but nothing special. Makes Madison and Grand Rapids look like an absolute joke.

Id say about a 7. The skyline is fairly impressive, but the city just looks so ugly. No offense. I guess I am just so used to the Northwest and all of our trees that if a city doesnt have them, I dont like it.
