      Help us with our donation goal for a new Chat upgrade!   04/17/2017

      Your donations not only help keep the site up and running, but also allows us to expand some functionality and upgrade other features of the site periodically to stay current! We're looking for some community support to help us get a new Chat system (as you know our old Chat is no longer supported by IP.Board). A new system promises to give us many more options and all for fairly little cost, relatively speaking. Please help us reach our April goal so we can keep bringing you site improvements as well!  Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

Idea Suggestion: Districts

4 posts in this topic

My apologies if this has already been discuss.

 

Add the ability to create districts which are independent of zoning areas and can eliminate the dreaded circle of influence .

 

One type which is purely cosmetic, architecture district which control the type of buildings ie: create a Chinatown for example.

 

The important ones would be School, Police and Fire Districts. So for example, any school inside the district will serve the residents of that district, placement of the schools, fire station, etc does not matter.

 

Ideally the district can be of any shape but just a adjustable rectangle would be fine and is more realistic than using circles.

 

Use can also use district for hospitals.

 

Creating rural farm towns in Simcity 4 was quite frustrating, typically these small towns have a huge school district served by a small school.

 

Anyways, just offering an idea...

I have already discussed the implementation of districts using GIS analysis, such as Voronoi polygons and proximity.

 

It would be interesting for ethnic enclaves to pop up, although it has to be done in such a way that certain ethnic minorities would not end up being stuck impoverished and crime ridden.
