Ok I made another region. Its a different map from the first one so we have a bit of a difference for anyone who wants to start over. It has 16 spots. I made it invite only so we keep it BX only. Its on NA East 2 called Great Boxden. No double cities for the moment until we get everyone in this sh*t.

I got coal mine going also thats feeding my coal factory and the rest of it going to the global market but it says I only have about 6 months supply underneath so not sure whats going to happen after that. I have a sh*tload of ore underneath my town also don't know if I want to dig it out though since I dropped residential there.

did the same thing with my coal when I started.. had to reverse the industrial with the residential cuz my houses were sitting right on top of my reserves!

After you run out, that's it.. income is gone and you might go bankrupt if you were relying too heavily on your exports of that resource. I got coal to feed my own power plant too but I'm sitting on three full storage yards at my trade depot, ready to export.

Haha I just dropped that ore mine near the residential and said fu*k it. Switched the coal to local only and put the ore to export since its selling for higher at the moment anyways. I eventually wanna make the city into an Electronics city anyways to get off the mining bullsh*t.

Also Peter whats your origin tag?

If they improve city sizes and fix the server issues, this will be one of the top games of the year. Wish they would add more sh*t too like a subway or even an above road railroad tracks.

Some of the sh*t in this game literally makes no sense lol. I've been taking this new city slow and its running the best yet but for some reason people in my city are protesting about no education even though I literally have 100% enrollment which is the first time I've had anything over 50% at all. How the new city is looking. Testing out some of the filters. Slowly expanding this one.

You can view the rest of the shots here:

Just a few notes about what I like to call Queueville
  • Public transportation rate of 54%
  • Completely wind and solar-powered (takes up a sh*t ton of space, but it's clean and reliable)
  • 50,000 people, with a vast majority being high wealth
  • Vast majority of commercial and residential buildings are high wealth + high density
  • I used the single-line snake method for my street car network someone mentioned in this thread.
  • For buses, I paired each stop to make sure buses didn't have to make too many u-turns, causing traffic jams
  • 7 minute street car average wait and 19 minute bus average wait, only one fully loaded station each
  • Community college isn't enough to get a good high-tech industry going unless you are prepared for hazmat garages.
  • I think we should try and build the solar farm great works. It could provide power to the entire region and we wouldn't have to use space in our cities for plants.
  • You can get by with just two basic police stations at 50k, and one basic hospital.
  • Libraries do help increase education faster
  • Commercial really struggles without tourism.
  • I have the department of utilities, department of education, and the department of safety all taken care of. Need some of you to take department of tourism, department of transportation and department of finance because I won't be able to get to 75k in this city unless I pack everybody in like sardines.
  • And PLEASE take this high a.ss industrial demand off my hands.
