    Sim: Mayor! We need more workers/shoppers!

    Me:WHAT? Over 85% of this city is HOUSES and APARTMENTS. You can't tell me a population of over 60,000 isn't enough for you.

    [+] Solved my traffic issues and got my industry running at an optimal rate and things have just exploded. Population going back up, they're even building high rises left and right.

    They're getting hit with a lot of pollution though since I was an idiot and built the factories upwind. But in order to compensate I lowered taxes to 0%. They may be glowing green, but they're still happy because they don't have taxes to pay.

    And most importantly, despite the -100k per hour that it shows, I'm still raking in the millions :P

    [+] After playing a city pretty much all day, I was doing damn well. Even though my actual income was about 75k in the red, I was raking in well over 5M per day from processor/computer factories.

    Then a couple new guys joined in the regions around mine. I helped out, sent over excess utilities and service vehicles. But after about an hour they essentially ruined their cities and left.

    Fast forward another hour or so, and you see residents from their cities flooding into mine looking for work and shopping, causing one hell of a traffic bottleneck for me and my industry. Brought my profits down from 5M/day to roughly 120k/day with absolutely nothing that I could do about it.

    Needless to say my city is now a ruin as well. And that's how I wasted my day off!

[+] Slowly getting to where I need to be! Although I think this city has reached the limit of what it'll be able to do by itself. Now I'm going to need to found some other cities in the region and specialize them to help funnel resources into my main city.

    • Could very well be. I've only had the game for a few hours so I'm still learning the ins and outs :P

      But I have all three cities in that region. That one is going to be my huge metropolis, becoming mostly residential and commercial area by the time I'm done with it. I'm working on another city turning it into my industrial hub, and I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with the third city yet.

    • Well, good luck :) It definitely looks like a game that has a lot of trial and error gameplay.

    Hey, it's ugly but it's making me some money. Once I hit the 1M-1.5M mark I can bulldoze and dezone every bit of it and start over to build me a nice and purdy city XD

    • That, and the Always On thing were what turned me away from it. As soon as I can find it or $20 or less, I'll get it.

    • I can live with the always on since my internet is always on. And the multiplayer is actually a lot more fun than it seems. Made things easier too since my neighbors were able to help me with my services in the beginning by sending over some spare fire trucks, waste trucks, etc.

    Thoughts anyone?

    • That'd be nice lol.

      DIdn't end up playing it for long... Traffic does seem a bit better though.

      I'm mainly interested in seeing if the Agency AI outside of traffic has been fixed (ie. not all the cops go to the same criminal, buses spread out, etc.)
