  1. Past hour
  2. Besides CBDs, industrial districts create by far the highest concentrations of traffic in C:S, due to combining both the insane amount of trucks as well as commuters onto the same roadways. Your CBD is coming along really nicely, I'm looking forward to seeing this new metro!
  3. Today
  4. Oh yes, my biggest traffic challenge in most of my cities in SC 4 , is a large and dense CBD But i will be interested in your further reports on this...
  5. Yesterday
  6. Ocean View Surpasses ( 900,000) Population !!!
  7. Beautiful pics Aldini!
  8. Last week
  9. Cool looking desk top there, hika !
  10. The tall office towers actually do cause a lot of extra traffic to materialize in the vicinity. I don't remember about SC4 stats because I never got that far, but it's a fair amount. I introduced metro to combat road traffic, so now downtown has formed enormous amounts of pedestrian traffic. I will create a post outlining this situation very soon.
  11. Ya sorry, i have never played the game i am still playing the same old 2 games i have been playing forever LOL In fact I have not played Civ V , for quite some time now. So really it has just been Sc 4. lately.. but i did give you a + 1 rep point for a super posting here my friend..
  12. Thanks !, Donut This is my 1,500 posting ! And also Both Hika + Aldini have made postings today So we must be still doing pretty well for July posting total for the site ?
  13. Aldini , I agree that really looks super ! What a lovely developed CBD, WOW I think I especially like the night shot pic, that has to be my favorite man. Do those super towers cause a lot of extra traffic like they would in SC 4 ? Or perhaps traffic dose not work the same in CS ? Thanks for the superb update, Brian
  14. I've gotten some higher density towers to be constructed on my downtown land as part of the city's master plan. It's coming out great!
  15. Do you play this? Who's your main? Mine is Reaper. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overwatch_(video_game)
  16. And I'm not even a D.Va main.... (that's the character in this image, from Overwatch)
  17. Brian is nearing 1,500 and I recently passed 5,500.
  18. congrats aldini ! As i also near. 1.500 postings !
  19. Just hit 100 reputation points. @bben pointed out I'm also nearly at 1,000 posts!
  20. Thank you @bben, I didn't notice thanks for letting me know. This is excellent! @pupper_donut thanks, I have known the skyline wasn't too interesting but it's coming well enough now. I was trying to focus on the undeveloped land around to make it look like it's not just a downtown area. As for the traffic, there are no major issues. Traffic flow hovers around 86%. Perhaps the only place I see future trouble for is the intersection in a post I made a while back. The road connecting the outer suburb villa to the inner city takes 160-180 vehicles per game instance. More growth is expected to occur in that area. Hopefully this does not create a Katy Freeway scenario. I am working to see how well this city can handle vehicle traffic without freeways, and when the time comes, I will split off this city with another saved game file where I construct freeways and check the differences. This should be an interesting experiment.
  21. Updated to clarify some important points.
  22. Earlier
  23. So with the departure of my other city thread I'll just be posting certain works on other cities I'm working on. I am only working on one city at the moment but that number will rise as I find suitable maps to build on. This is the town of Katakonia. I am currently working on re positioning the freeway, which is actually a larger project than I envisioned. Here is the original freeway positioning. I'd much rather have it built in such a way that it lines up with the roads so it is not awkward to construct future service interchanges. Notice how it very prominently cuts across the town. I have created an imgur album which shows the construction of this new freeway and how traffic was redirected during, which is something that I had never done before in-game. http://imgur.com/a/FQtui Here is the album, thanks for looking!
  24. Welcome to Simmania! We're a very relaxed, welcoming community for people who play city-building simulation games as well as Minecraft and other games. In order to maintain this sort of atmosphere, there are a few simple things we ask all members to abide by: Content: Racist, sexist, otherwise hateful, and pornographic content is strictly prohibited. Content inappropriate for users under 18 years of age may only be posted in designated forum sections and approved AJAX channels. This generally includes sexual, illicit gore, & drug themes. Moderation will use their discretion to determine what content is inappropriate. Flaming and berating other members of the community, or the community itself, is strictly prohibited. Moderation may take administrative action where necessary. adf.ly or similar services that allow you to make money off of links clicked will result in removal of the post or link in question if posted, and possible suspension or a ban. Black-hat SEO, scams, "make money online", or other shady advertising is disallowed and can result in suspension or a ban. Low quality content is discouraged on the forums. Low quality content includes one- or two-word posts, triple or quadruple posting (especially if the content is irrelevant or unimportant), content that does not follow the discussion at hand, and thread hijacking. Low quality posts will be removed. Controversial discussions should only be held in the designated forum section. In chat, controversial discussions may be moved to a separate channel. Discussions on the forums will be moved to the appropriate section when the discussion is deemed controversial. Etiquette & Behavior: Mutual respect is one of the cornerstones of our community. Our community consists of a wide range of individuals from different races, genders, sexual preferences, and ages. Everyone, including staff, is expected to demonstrate tolerant, respectful behavior toward others, including those who we dislike or disagree with. If you find yourself being bullied by another member, ignore the person and notify staff. Should you decide to react inappropriately you will find yourself being reprimanded appropriately. Controversial discussions may only be held on the forums in the appropriate section. In chat, we may ask that you move the discussion to a private channel if the chat room is busy. Backseat moderation is unhelpful and disruptive. Instead, please report any problems or incidents to moderation or administration. In chat, you can block a person's messages by clicking their screen name and choosing "Ignore/Accept". All members must comply with instructions given by moderation and administration. If you feel moderation was unfair in a decision, please notify administration. Warnings, Suspensions, and Bans: It is extremely rare that members are banned or suspended from Simmania. However, this does not mean that bans and suspensions have not taken place, and does not mean they will not take place again. Moderation has the right to suspend any member at any time prior to review by administration, but may not issue bans. Administration may issue a ban at any time for any reason. Bans and suspensions may not be appealed. If your account is banned or suspended, you will receive a thorough explanation including the duration of the suspension (if applicable). Bans are usually discussed beforehand among administration, moderation, and active members in good standing. Warnings are issued by staff members for minor violations. Three or more concurrent warnings will result in an automatic 3 day suspension, during which time your account may be banned or your suspension extended. Advertising & User Profiles: Light advertising is permitted in your profile, signature, and avatar, as well as in designated forum sections. Moderation and administration will use their discretion to determine if your advertising is too heavy. In this case, the content will be removed without notice.

Thank you for reading and following these guidelines!
