Has a better city builder ever existed?
>inb4 muh SimCity 4
City building game fan general basically.
>>
>>323680758
it's great so far, but do the have the lane using fixed by now?
It is a big problem, although most traffic problems come from people forgetting to ban heavy traffic from certain districts.
>>
Only thing I don't like is the lack of outlandish god mode disasters like in the sims games.
>>
>>323680758
>Civilian cars do not yield to emergency vehicles.
One thing SimCity 4 has than Cities does not.
It's a huge fucking problem.
>>
>>323681036
oh yeah, forgot about this one.
And train station spawn so many nearly empty trains that it makes normal train crossing useless.
>>
>>323680758
It's a great game, totally.
But they need to simplify traffic and shit. I can never figure it out.
>>
>>323681307
no, simplification actually ruined the traffic and mods were need to fix it.
see lane control

That's why you make your own.
>>
>>323680758
My only real problem with Cities Skylines is how shit performance is.
>>
Can't wait to try it out on xbone.
>>
>>323682618
You must have a shit computer then, it's fine for me.
>Dat sexy 60fps

>>323682618
probably using intel onboard graphic?
game doesn't run/run like shit with those
>>
I never played simcity but cant people live there own life?

Like someone could be an pyro burning all your buildings
>>
>>323680758
Why is there never any crime.
Like I've never seen crime in my cities go over 5%, and I hardly ever see police cruisers responding to calls.
Also, the ambulance siren spam makes going down close to the city to observe a risk to your sanity.

>WEEEE WOOOO WEEE WOOOO WEEE WOOO WEEE WOOO WEEE WOOO
>>
>>323684202
You hate the sirens? I fucking love them.
Especially when 8 of them get stuck in traffic and it sounds like an absolute clusterfuck on the ground level.
>>
>>323684202

Same. Even when you have zero police there isn't any crime. It's something that really needs to be fixed.
>>
>>323684202
Just get the murrican siren mod, much better than that euroshit
>>
>>323683475
>>323683368
No, I'm not that much of a poorfag. My specs are pretty decent. Usually the game performs fine right up until I start being able to use high density buildings. Then the sheer number of people makes the FPS plummet.

I've got an Nvidia GTX650 with SLI for reference.

Yeah, A faggot with onboard is on /v/... Makes sense
except it doesn't
>>
>>323684202
>>323684510
Exactly. There doesn't really seem to be a crime mechanic or use for the police.
It's always bright cyan blue whenever I look at the crime map so I think to myself "why even waste the money?"

It's not hard to be the best given the competition in the genre.
>>
>>323685389
Whoever makes this game will become richest beyond their wildest dreams.

>>323685069
Yes.
>>
>>323685115
Crime doesn't happen if cims are employed.
>>
>>323685389
The closest thing we have to that is Rise of Nations.
But even that's sort of a stretch since the city building isn't really that detailed.

Is this Anno 2070? How is this game?

Also, has anyone played Banished? I picked it up in the steam sale but haven't played it yet.
>>
>>323688979
its 2205. It is definitely dumbed down from 2070, but its still fun and looks damn fucking sexy, as always.
>>
>>323688141
>no comfy multiplayer
fucking dropped.
>>
>>323688956

How would it not?
Gangs lose significant revenue if people can buy it legally...

less power ~> less activity > less crime

It'd be a dent, but a dent is a dent.
>>
>>323688956
You'd think there would be at least a small rise in unemployment or crime but no. There is literally no reason not to make it city-wide, since it increases happiness.
>>323688979
Banished is also amazing. If there were a top 3 city builder games ever, Cities and Banished would be in that top 3.
>>
>>323688979
2205 pretty significantly changed the meta of the game. There are 3 basic regions, temperate, arctic and moon. Temperate is the region that you make money with (from taxes) and arctic and moon are where you get resources to build up your temperate region.

>>323689210
>multiplayer
>in anno
nigger, 2070 was neat with multiplayer but it took fucking hours, and i mean like 10-12 hours, to build up the tech monument SOLO in a seeded map that was pretty much built to support such an endeavor. All multiplayer maps would turn out to be were just you and you're friends shitty, rinky-dink cities until one of you advances far enough to build jets and then you win. Shit was boring.

Play it vanilla to start with but it pretty much needs Colonial Charter to feel like a "full game".

Fucking trains and Cities Skylines. The game just LOVES to spam regional trains up your fucking ass and create a shitstorm of traffic.

Cities Skyline isn't a city building game, its a traffic management game with the same assets and unrealistic cities. And for a traffic management game its got a shit ton of bad vehicle AI pathing

Being shit at traffic in this game is a death sentence.
Shit road system ---> Slow response times ----> Burned down buildings and dead people and garbage piling up ----> Severe loss of land quality, exodus of citizens ---> dead city.

There should be a tutorial on how to manage traffic in this game.

No dumbshit inbreed asshole, they do slowly move to stronger drugs sometimes.

The criminals can sell stronger drugs or start another criminal activity. That's what i said in the begining but your slow brain can't understand plain words.

Do you really believe they'll give up and start to working and going to college ?

How? Getting rich in this game is almost too easy.
Just follow the RCI meter and put in all the essential service buildings (schools, police, fire emt, etc...) and you'll literally be fine.
>>
>>323692402
Not him
Why would crime rates not go down? Even assumning that every smalltime dealer moves over to hard drugs, then you still have less reported crimes that have to do with owning or trafficking weed
I don't see a situation where crime rates would increase instead of decrease after legalization
>>
>>323692816
no when weed is legal everyone will just buy heroine and it will sell better than ever XD
>>
>>323692489
>How do I not go bankrupt?
Don't be a dumbass. Just follow RCI like the other dude said.
Make sure you focus on residential, especially early on.
Also don't do those policies that literally strip away your money like the smoke alarm program or water saving, etc....early on.
>>
>>323692807
I dunno. I build stuff when the meters go up and I build all the essential buildings and then bam, bankrupt.
>>
>>323693149
try again, it takes a few tries before you get good

start small, dont do taxes over 13%
>>
>>323689232
Being legalized wouldn't make drug dealers disappear. They would sell drugs on both ends, they already have the distribution methods, also their illegal goods would be cheaper because no tax.
>>
Got the game for christmas, play it a lot, and it's pretty fun. But starting to get problems with traffic, I noticed a lot of cars despawning before reaching their goal. And the trains are soooooooo 8ad, they cause so much traffic.
>>
>>323694023
Trains in this game = actual cancer.

>>323694110
Th8 eat so much of by 8udget too, like, it costs almost 10 000 to have four st8tions for goods. My economy isn't am8zing, using all this money for something else would 8e nice.

I've mostly focused on metros, 8ut 8een setting up some 8us routes the past couple of d8s now. The 8us depot costs money, and I think there are too many regular cars on the road. Some people pro8a8ly have too far to travel to get to the metro st8tions, so giving them 8us would 8e nice, and then th8 can switch to metro when it is av88le.
