    Getting into the SimCity Zone

    The Zoning System is what we use to handle the physical placement of buildings instead of the grid from previous versions of the game.

    Building a city is very much a geometric problem – buildings and roads need to be positioned in the world somehow, and the city needs to develop in a natural, cohesive, and believable way

    Interesting.  Too bad they are doing so little with this idea.

    Though they have change the grid way of zoning, they still haven't explored much about this idea. It still goes around 3 separate zones: R,C and I.

    It would be good if they made use of Mixed-use areas, which exists in virtually every city that's ever been founded and the city would not be believable if these walls of convention hasn't been broken down.

    Residential+commercial mix buildings would've been a good start on this one. I mean, what, 90% of buildings in my city has commercial offices on the ground floor.
