There will be "residences, venues, and jobs" which is RCI just renamed. it looks like you could plop anything anywhere, just as you can put a potter right next to a household in a CB. Perhaps it has negetive consequences, but there seems to be no building "growth" at all, you just plop a large apart...

Yes, we would zone the private sector. And we would plop the buildings the government owns (Power plants, police stations, water treatment plants, etc) which would foster growth of the private sector. Without that simple dynamic, of providing for the private sector, the whole game flies out the wind...

Also, TM, Just so you take this the right way. I like you, I like the games you make, I look forward to playing them, So when a company I follow regularly, makes a sequel to a game I just happened to be playing a day before the announcement, and I don't think I will ever buy a copy... That worries m...

Sim City : Dictatorial Planned Economy Edition!

I will start this post by saying I am a Tilted Mill/Impressions fan, I own everything from Lord of the Realm 2 up with the exception of some of the expansions. By comparison I am only a casual Sim City fan, I play it for a week or two roughly once a year. From the standpoint of a fan of TM, and not ...

"This is sim city" Screenshots

Please put them here instead, I like looking at them, but it makes the other threads hard to read. Thank you.

*Note: I'm not advocating the publishing of long lists of screenshots, just hoping to get them out of the main threads.

For those sim city fans that arent aware, (and from reading on some of your forums) Tilted Mill may be a recent company, but if you look at their staff and their previous projects, you will find this company is staffed largely by former Impressions Games workers. (The people who made the City Buildi...

Can you still see yellow, or is it just the blue?

I assume you can problably see red and green fine right? so pairing a blue with one of those should make sense to you? or am I wrong?

Being colorblind the color coded Feng Shui wasnt much fun for me. I think the very light green mixed with the orangish yellow were the same, and was there a red color involved too? Didnt the fountains in C3 color code red and green too if they had water or not? Why dont more people use Blue and Red,...

I doubt they would check things of little importance like textures. I would think it unlikely that they would hash all the textures, since it doesnt change anything.

Thats my personal opinion, but maybe they will.

Ooh, that road is a neat idea. This thread is great, I need to come up with something to add to it. When the full game comes out we really need to make a cataloge of simple design elements you can throw into your city. I dont mean fully designed garden cities, I mean, small park tile combinations, p...

Sorry, Thinking about it now I was thinking of the beautification I did to my cities, building them in abstract patterns like wheels on a spoke or in a diamond with large amounts of wasted space for gardens and statues. I viewed that as inefficiency, forgeting that one could still make a very effici...

Optional God Effects

Could we have an option or a cheat to turn off all god effects other than people complaining for lack of religion. It was my least enjoyable aspect of C3, sort of took me out of the game. (single player only of course) I never cared for Jupiter smiting or a god blessing my warehouses or farms, I jus...

So far I have been able to get a single road to take up 1/3 of the screen, I suspect even more zoom is possible. Considerably closer than Arcimedies, though you are deffinately on the right track, I have decided not to post any guides or files before the full game comes out though. So regardless, I ...

So far these results are interesting. 50% of the people find their victory in things other than the victory conditions. Most all people find victory in things other than the victory conditions. Some of the trends between the groups are interesting. All Tycoons are also industrialists, logical, but I...

Good point, maybe I should try and fit that under Priest, since I think more people fall under that, than pleasing the gods. what do you think?

Those townhouse mods are really nice, I look forward to what you do with C4! (Being color blind editing things like that myself isnt my cup of tea, but I can appreciate how they look.)
