There are a number of ways to do it.

The main thing is to provide good access to the highways and have good highway networks that distribute the flow of traffic evenly throughout your city.

>>
>>121437368
It was a massive disappointment for many.

>>121440094
Depends. Would you be ok with an anno that is only about building shit with no need to balance diplomacy and military? The only challenge left in the game is balancing budget because lunar settlements require ridiculous amounts of maintenance. Even so it's easy to overcome because the whole sector is yours so you can just spam the temperate sector full of low-level taxpayers before expanding to the next level. If you just want comfy building then go for it but if you want the whole package of expanding under pressure then better stay away. If in doubt, pirate then buy if you find yourself liking it.

basically that review is shit because saying that features that only existed in 1 title in the whole franchise somehow define that franchise is ridiculous

according to that anno 1404 is not an anno game, since it does not have research, pollution, choice of factions

dont get me wrong the game is extremely bare-bones and really needs scenarios re-implemented, but that review is simply misleading
>>
>>121461048
i am not saying the game is bad, what i cant understand, why couldn't they take 2070 or 1404, and build on that, to make it 1.5 or 2x better, instead they re-did the whole game, leaving lots of features out
>>
>>121461190
because they intend to sell it as dlc senpai
>>
>>121461190
I think they wanted to try something a bit different this time around. After making almost the same game five times in a row, I can understand why. However the Anno formula actually works every time, even if it's basically a reskin + some new stuff.

I think trying to do something new isn't a bad idea, but this one didn't work out so well. Perhaps they'll have a better idea next time.
>>
>>121461447
if this sells like shit, there probably wont be a next time, lets hope this one won't get like 5 DLC's, instead 1 very big one with lots of features, or 2 tops, and SOON
>>
>>121461539
it probably will given that all the negative reviews on steam

even though at least one of the major complaints is simply not true
>>
>>121461539
Considering the orbital region and the tundra region have already been announced as DLC, I wouldn't expect there to be one big one.
>>

>>121461048
>a misleading game review
color me surprised
>>
>>121461859
what surprised me a bit is that people on both /v/ and steam forums were so convinced that this game is shit that they never even gave it a chance and said false things about it, major complains I saw on v

no storage - actually false there is storage, anyone who is not braindead would have noticed this

I reached the top level execs in 3 hours what a shit game - execs are not the top level and anno 1404 had an achievement for reaching the top level in 1 hour

placement of service buildings no longer matters - false it does, all service buildings generate their resource and the further away a house is from the service building the more resource it consumes so you still have to place them centrally

warehouse placement no longer matters - not true the logistics center work the same way as service buildings do

again, I realise that the game IS FLAWED, but why shit on a game before you even try it properly? think about it, those people wanted to hate it so badly that they just assumed those false points
>>
>>121462309
the fact remains that the game is pretty much shit, like most games after 2007. i don't know why you faggots keep enabling this horse shit.
>>
>>121462931
just because you grew up and no longer enjoy games does not mean that they are shit

not defending anno 2205 mind you, still its stupid to outright lie just to shit on something
>>
>>121462309
>no storage
The storage is really hard to notice, maybe because for like every other game it was in the warehouse but this time they decided to be ebin hipsters and put it elsewhere. The fact that people can actually not notice a storage exists is in itself a very strong point of criticism - why change something that has been here since fucking forever and works just fine?
>I reached the top level execs in 3 hours what a shit game - execs are not the top level and anno 1404 had an achievement for reaching the top level in 1 hour
Except there's literally nothing else to do other than promote pops. Nobody to fight except for joke crisis sectors that RTS scrubs can win by 'select everyone and right click', etc.
>placement of service buildings no longer matters
The biggest problem with this is that it's not explicitly mentioned in the tooltips. If you want to make such a major change at least fucking tell us. I didn't even notice until after a while. I do agree this is an improvement, though they could at least have told us.
>warehouse placement no longer matters - not true the logistics center work the same way as service buildings do
Once again nothing in the tooltips.
>again, I realise that the game IS FLAWED, but why shit on a game before you even try it properly? think about it, those people wanted to hate it so badly that they just assumed those false points
When the game makes changes and doesn't tell you shit it's not your fault for assuming. Update your tooltips or something so people know, this is clearly developers' fault.

they might as well be, the 2 new chains opened are a massive joke
like 10 minutes after getting my first investor they were all 100% happy since it's a matter of plopping down 5 buildings, add some modules and 2 extra trade routes
in the previous games at least you had to concern yourself over fertilities/mine spots and to some degree challenging production chains like pharmaceuticals or bionic suits
>>
>>121467097
the idea of different geographic regions having different economic advantages could be problematic for some users
>>
>>121463000
This has nothing to do with growing up, this has to do with how removing features and challenge from games is the new staple philosophy from game developers. If it was simply outgrowing them, then even old games would stop being fun, and they haven't. And no, it's not nostalgia either. Even picking up old games and franchises I had never played before, they are still so much fun than most newer ones.

Youre probably looking at installing NAM for road underpasses under rails without modifying the shit out of your terrain.
>>
>>121469586
good going for first base, actually. what storyteller/difficulty you playing, because that will describe your base a lot .

otherwise the design is actually quite functional, but i would make the craft rooms, storages more accessible instead of building them deep into the hill. just building a room further into the hill will increase the travel time between rooms and that in itself combined with hauling long distanced can prolongue literally everything in the game. give it a lot of supply chain thought, but then again, if youre playing on an easier difficulty, it does not really matter, just make sure there is good accessability for defense and production.

and yes, definetly more needed, not to mention batteries, that need a room for themselves. build windmills as well, youll need any and all power sources.

So what the fuck did people mean by there was more/lots of content in anno 2205?

There is three production trees, just like anno 2070. 2070 had both starting factions and scientists, then later underwater with DLC. 2205 has base faction, cold people, and moon people.

I think I'm gonna see if Steam will refund this shit.

Im playing the "gradually increasing difficulty" girl at Rough difficulty.

What do you think of building into the mountain vs outside?
>>
>>121488392
In that case primarily build into the mountianside, and priorize creating a killbox.

i usually build what i felt like and somewhat thusly adjusted difficulty depending on evniromnet. so easy diff = hard enviro and counterwise.

Help me out /cbg/.

I pirated Anno 2205 on a whim since I never really got interested in the series before and the previous installment didn't really do it for me either.

But this one, hell I can't stop playing. I'm really into this game now. If any of you have done something similar, if I buy the game, can i transfer my save easily from pirate to legit?

The game is filled with all that DRM crap so I'm concerned.
>>
>>121490879
Not sure about Anno but most pirated games have the cracker team made it so that the game saves everything on the default location (just like if you purchase the game legit). Again not sure with Anno's case, but likely you will be able to just continue where you left off once you purchase the game and install it.

Just need to worry about the duplicate registry shit for your pirated game vs. legit.

>>121492867

Why not? I liked the decisions they took with the game and I'm enjoying it much more than 2070. I was confused earlier because on /v/ people blatantly lied about features being missing because they were stupid enough not to see them, so when I played it was a very pleasant surprise.

I've been needing a new city builder for a long time now, Skylines didn't do it for me and Sim City is dead.

Seriously, how do I not fuck my traffic in Cities: Skyline?

>>121494050

If 1404 is truly the better game then it will be great regardless of when I play it, but if I jump to it now I may end up spoiling my enjoyment of 2205.

That's pretty darn neat.

Also, since After Dark has been out for a good..month and a half now, what's the judgement? Worth 15 bucks or worth a sale. Or not worth a buy at all.

After Dark is very much worth the money, even if it is just t support the devs. It is the best city builder on the market right now.

Having said that, if you are tight on money, the free AD patch has enough content so save your money.

The districts are pretty messy since there are lots of bizarro shaped leisure and hotel districts added to the downtown area. There are some more interesting areas though.

Chasm city should be pretty self explanatory, grown around stacked rails and highways. The sunken railway station in the middle has the highest usage rates in the entire city.
Arborea is the central park area of the city, divided in half by the downtown highway.
If you're looking for some bad time, Brookham is the place. Nested between airport, highways, railways and some light industry, the land value isn't exactly stellar. You only move here if you have to.

The problem with Banished is that the main challenge of the game is not starving/freezing to death. It's decent fun for a while but then you realise that the game doesn't really have much depth, once the initial starting challenge is over its smooth sailing unless you make serious mistakes. Nobody really has any needs beyond food, firewood and a house. There's some replay value in weird shit like go for the no schools no trade no farms achievements all in one playthrough, mods also add some more replayability but it doesn't last that long. Worth 20 bucks at normal retail price? Probably not. Worth 5 bucks at 75% off now? Probably.

as it is it's kinda barebones
>>
>>121585936
2070 has better gameplay than 1404 except for the absolutely inexcusable AI which makes SP inferior. 2205 has some nifty changes and good ideas but it's crippled by the fact that the only challenge is in how fucking irritating it is to wait for sectors to load and no amount of DLC jewery will fix this.

tl;dr
2070 MP >1404 >2070 SP >>>>> 2205

I like them both.

Storymode is fun because you get a nice story and some extra challenges that probably wouldn't be fun all the time but are fun because they fit in with the story.

Endless is fun because, well, it's going to take you a few hours at least just to get to the max level, and then you challenge yourself with making all your chains optimal, or making a huge fleet, or making the biggest city, or building a monument. Whatever you want.
Basically endless I play until I feel I've had enough, which is usually a week or so later.

So how much ram do you actually need for Anno 2205?
It says it'll run on as little as 4 gigs of ram, but I doubt that given all the map switching you need to do.
Bit worried my meager 6 gigs won't be enough.

Not that I'm actually going to buy it yet; I'm going to wait till the game is 40 bucks, or 50 with the dlc.

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but the newest patch is going to give us 50% larger zones (or 50% more zones?).

https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/building-limits-increased-patch-1-2-2-f2-is-live.890051/

Still no tunnels in the map creator though.
>>
>>121603745
>50% larger

does that mean that theyre just going to increase the zones allowed to buy from 9 to like 15 and people will still mod it up to 25?

brilliant fucking job if so

I'm dumb, what does Zone limit increased 50% mean
>>
>>121604739
They did a bunch of optimizing to allow more buildings and roads and the like.
So my guess is the zones are just going to get larger in size.

Are there Android games similar to SimCity? Banished? Grand Ages: Rome or Anno 2205? Anno 1404/1503/1602/1701/2070?
Something that comes close to the same kind of complexity, or a straight up port of a game, like OpenTTD, that I already have, but eh, it's not really a CB.

I tried to replicate the situation. Lots of windows and railings at jaggies-prone angles, and used same 1080p resolution as you. Here's the result using the ingame highres screenshot. Downscaled back to 1080p in paint.

>>121616448
Weather and Seasons would be added. You have to take care of the snow in you city which also slows down you traffic or blocks roads. Also you need more energy for heating and people get more ill. Changing seasons will cause snow to melt and produce masses of water and hot summer will reduce the amount that is available.
Also a more complex industry. Industry has to gather resources like ore and oil. Then it gets refined and they build basic products out of them. Then other factories will build advance stuff like TVs and PCs.
>>
>>121616448
Modern day monuments.

So something massive that takes a long time to build, and when complete completely changes things in your city.
Like for example a large car car manufacturing plant, or some kind of extra fancy skyscraper. Or the Olympics. Stuff like that.

Also extra large buildings of 5*x, 6*x, 7*x, 8*x tiles.


Also also, marketplaces. Special kind of park. Not sure what I'd make it do but it'd have to motivate people to place it in the center of the cities, or even start their cities with one or more.
>>
>>121616448
Cyberpunk styled buildings, can be disabled through the menu. It causes buildings to get really tall, wifi because a service that needs to be taken care of, drones, causes buildings that are built near a highway, freeway or some other road that towers over the building to get built with the road installed into it. Like this.

Nvidia here as well (980ti), so that doesn't explain. I tried the same scene with ingame antialias turned off, but the result actually looks exactly the same (the antialias in this game is hilariously ineffective).

You're gonna want more food.

Also, building in the mountains is secure but it takes fuckages to set up nicely and my colonists tend to snap and go crazy before the base is finished. You don't have to build in a mountain. Just make sure whatever you build only has one entrance in and out.

Please don't laugh at me.

How do I reliably make money in Anno 2205?

I'm building moon shit now, trying to make the augmentation production chain so I can ship that shit to earth. To make even two of them (just two units) costs 3000 a turn in maintenance, and then 2000 to ship them to Earth. So I pile on more executives and shit to try and get more money but then have to upgrade my other resources and yeah.

It's taking for fucking ever.

Cover entire temperate zones with low-level housing. Not because they're the most profitable, but because satisfying production chains just gets tedious.

Build lots of houses of medium level.
More people means more taxes.
You don't want the highest levels because they, like you said, require moon stuff.
So just get them as high as you can with local (or cheap to supply) resources.

As >>121634831 says, temperate climate is the best place for that.

so, pretty much like a stripped down Dwarf Fortress? or just about any city builder after you get past financial problems?

it's still fun if you're simply into focusing on making the town grow instead and i found the colonial mod adds in a lot more depth and replayability than vanilla.

Don't you still need to do circles basically? I'm not sure how the fuck things work.

Not that anon but I want to make a city that has everything integrated. Right now I have separate areas for city, industry, and farming, but a lot of the buildings seem like they are designed to work in as little space as possible. As if they were meant to be in or near the city itself.

It would help if I didn't have to circle due to police stations/information stations and what not.

Just look at real cities and use ideas from there. You can balance traffic by using one way roads, roundabouts and so on. Imitating a real city will work except in industrial areas or train station since in skylines generates a shitload of trucks.

Could be that you highway isnt connected with the outside of the map. Thats a problem sometimes when you download a map.
>>
>>121688330
that was my first guess too, checked the map in the editor, but everything was connected
guess i'll have to cycle through my mods and see which one causes it
>>
>>121688585
Are you using the Network Extensions mod?

I know the national roads don't bring in people from outside the city, but I am pretty sure the 2 lane highway does.
>>
>>121688886
no, but scrambling through my mods it appears that traffic manager isn't continued anymore
sadly all TMs made by others are apparently incompatible with traffic++
now i got to decide if i'll stick with TM or T++... decissions, decissions...
>>
>>121689115
I'm using Traffic Manager and it seems to be working fine. I didn't even realise it was discontinued.

But yeah, I'm not using Traffic++ or anything else.

This is why you need traffic manager to assign street priorities.

How do I trade resources between my temperate and article outpost in 2205? I'm new to this series

>>121696042
Exit the sector to the world map, in bottom left corner you can set up transfer routes. Take note you must upgrade the spaceport to transfer stuff.

First time playing so be gentle pls

>>
>>121697994
Would be better if you could provide a bird's eye view in traffic mode.
>>

birds view means straight from the top, but this works as well, make more circulation within traffic, upgrade larger incoming avenues and main streets

Yes.
Remove the marked road and replace it with a 6 lane road. Because at the bottom all the trucks will drive to your industry on the right. Make a junktion in the middle so they can go directly to you industry without blocking the normal traffic in your town.

I already got 20 hours in that shit game. I could've been playing 2070 this whole time.
>>
>>121490879
I prefer 2070, more complex and more fun. I suggest you check it out before you buy 2205.

Notably, logistics and fleets of cargo ships. Also, combat is shit in 2205.

>>121581798
Reminds me of that zombie game dying light. Similar to the map layout, cool.

Just to check, Anno 2205 works like Grand Ages: Rome, right?
Buildings have a specific radius, and provide/consume goods within that radius, but there are no stocks, only production/consumption.
