Cities: Skylines

Recommended Posts

Just started playing this, far better than any Sim City to date. Easily a 9 out of 10. Nothing to complain about.

 

Agreed, ton of fun. Plenty of mods to try and get it even more fleshed out, too. One of my friends has a city over 100K, but with some congestion on the trains he's still messing with. Bunches up coming in from outside city limits.

I gave up on the game when I started seeing places becoming abandoned even though there was a cemetery and crematorium in front of it on a desolate street :( Wish we could set zones for buildings to operate it(don't know if there's mods for this, not really interested in mods tbh).

If there's no easy place for the hearses or other service vehicles to turn around on, things can sit for a while. The 4-lane street doesn't let vehicles turn around easily, since they need to find a place to make the turns. What I've done is build a 3-way or 4-way intersection, but have one of the roads be just a small blip to let service vehicles and any others make a quick turnaround.

I attached a pic of an area that was annoying me, lots of hearses were driving in that zone but none went to the building which went abandoned eventually :/ I thought the accessibility was okay since there was an intersection every four buildings on that road, feedback would be nice so I can avoid what causes this in future :(

Thanks I'll try that then when the exams are done, I don't see why it wouldn't work especially when the building that rebuilt there had a dead body and a hearse came before it became abandoned :/ This death feature is annoying

Yeah, expansions, both free and paid, are on the docket for Gamescom next month. Full interview with CEO Mariina Hallikainen can be found here.

 

TR: Will you be releasing DLC for the game any time soon?
 
MH: We'll have a big expansion and release both free and paid updates, all of which we'll be revealing at Gamescom.

 

One of the updates from the end of May or thereabouts added in a few European-style maps and buildings, so the buildings are right next to each other with no gaps. Only works on the heavy zones and not light, but they look sweet.

After Dark expansion announced!

 

Main features:
 
Day and Night Cycle: Day and night changes in the city and affects citizen schedules. Traffic is visibly slower at night and some zoned areas do not work with full efficiency, further easing the traffic. Service vehicles move around as usual. A free update for all users.
 
Leisure specialization: Commercial areas can specialize in leisure activities. Leisure areas are especially active during the night, but work like regular commercial areas during the day. 
 
Beach specialization: Commercial areas such as beach bars and restaurants, small marina and fishing tours on the shoreline can specialize in beach activities.
 
Expanded City Services: Criminals will now be taken to Prison from Police buildings. Taxi service will help citizens and tourists travel around the city. Cargo hubs are harbors that accept cargo trains straight to the terminal. International airport is a huge airport, allowing much more traffic than the previous airport. It has a metro station attached to it. Bus terminal allows citizens to transfer to other bus lines in the terminal building. 
 
New transportation options: Bikes and dedicated bike lanes and bike ways let citizens opt for a faster alternative to walking. Bus lanes can be used to help the public transportation run smoother.

 

 

No word on when, but hopefully get that soon. The day/night cycle is a free update for everyone, while the other features will be added in with the purchase of the expansion. Should be in the $5 to $10 range, as most of Paradox's other expansions for Crusader Kings II and the like are priced that way.
