Metros are amazing if you can afford to build them. I expected them to be effective but not to this extent.
We really need some more terrain textures in the map editor.
Would love to have an asphalt texture of various colors for the grass and a concrete and rock wall textures (also of various colors) for the cliffs.
Like that we could at least get around for creating real cities canal and rivers, now they all look like they are passing the countryside.
Also, there needs to be a mod soon of using map editor tools when bulding a city. It would make life easier for people who want to do recreations of real life cities (like im trying at the moment).
BTW I have a fear there will be no chance of getting plopable buildings and structures that dont need to be attached to a road. I want to do some 3D buildings and parks that would be better if they were attached to a pedestrian walk or to nothing at all (even if they are not gameplay but only decorative, like trees), becuase of how the game works.
Are my fears unfunded and someone can crack this probelm in the future?
Idk how people are saying this game is easy..
It has quite a learning curve, at least for me (I'm not used to city builders), especially if you want to make your traffic work well.
Yeah, my old city (first area I made in the game) was getting its entrance bottlenecked horribly when I hit 15k, I added a metro to the other city at the right place and my roads went back to green.
OT: starting to hit a wall I think with my current city (which is still my first one)
At 15k population it was starting to look bad,but after a lot of changes it's good again and I'm at 20k pop, but I'm not sure how much room there is for further growth before my bandaids are no longer sufficient and the fundamental problems with the layout will stop me from expanding further.
I might have to start over soon, might as well as I'd like to integrate railways better (didn't leave room to do it properly before I unlocked them)
My city is starting to look kind of unappealing as well and with my current layout it's becoming more and more difficult to understand the flow of all traffic throughout it (who is going where in what numbers), as I now have 2 industry zones , 3 residential zones and ofc my offices all interacting over the starter highway intersection.
Holy hell, I just perused the workshop while I ate breakfast, IT'S OVER 7000!!!!!!
There is so much up there already, and WOW at all the new building assets that will spawn in game. Welp, I'll need a few hours to search the listings but my guess is building variety will be a veritable non-issue right soon if it isn't already. And my God after modding and patching Simcity 4 for 12+ years adding mods to CSL is such a painless joy.
I think I'm in love with this game.
Will emptying all my landsfills at the same time transfer the garbage over into my incenerators?
Edit - Seems the answer is yes
Somebody has already made buildings that do not require roads to build.
The water system works flawlesly, but you need practice and patience. Ive been 25 hours playing the game and out of them 20 are probably in the map editor. Had lots of problems with rivers at the beggining but after that and experimenting with them I could make rivers of any size and shape.I tried my hand on making a map. I have to say that creating a working river is really hard, I had to redo my water sources and riverbeds couple dozen of times because of overflowing water and waves that would either throw the water over the bank or create dry spots in the river. Greatest issue for me seems to be that there can't really be a huge height difference, of land, on where the water flow starts and where it ends (also higher sea level seems to help little). Also it seems that both the bed and walls need to be quite smooth for things to work perfectly.
There's already a ton of custom buildings in the workshop, I'm definitely impressed so far.
Yes, but you still have to place them one by one, right? If not, disregard the next sentence.
What I meant was a mod to add some workshop buildings in the pool of building that get automatically build on the RCI zones.
I passed 50k people, and I think I have some traffic problems:
Shit, my "build a bypass for the bypass" idea only kinda works. Traffic is so much fun.
Is there a difference between rivers and ocean with currents? Tried building a hydro-plant, but it showed me expected output of 0 MW.
Wonder if anyone can figure this out for me? My friend is using Steam broadcasting so that I can view his game, the problem is I can only see his mouse cursor moving around the screen and the rest is just black.
Anyone know how to solve this?
I'm going to have to revamp some of my highway system today.
Water is simulated, so you need to pick a dam spot with a strong current
I wish we had tunnels already. My main highway intersection is three stories high.
Thanks. I'm afraid of flooding my city though.
Please, anyone that could explain why this Dam stopped working a bit after I built it? I built it in a place with a pretty strong current, and it was estimated to generate 112 MW, which it did until it didn't :|.
Do the spawn buildings (residential areas etc) disable achievements as well?
