Road Layout First or Last?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm curious: When starting a city (sandbox or otherwise), should I place the roads (or tracks) first, or place them as I create my city? I see so many impressive layouts here, and I was wondering. Thanks in advance.

If it's a new city in a new region with no money to spare, obviously you can only build them as you can afford to use them. But, if it's a new city with enough money(gifts/sandbox/etc) then designing the perfect layout ahead of time is a better choice.

When you are starting in a new unfamiliar city square, open up the maps and see where the coal/oil/ores are and which way the wind blows.  Those will effect your first road, so you don't put industry upwind from residential (effects health) or build a lovely residentail area on the only coal on the map (a pain if you decide to start mining).

I plan most of my road layout using dirt tracks and upgrade as required. You just have to remeber where you are planning to put your highways..otherwise it could be costly....

Gotcha. Thanks again. :thumb:
