    Cities: Skylines
  1. Thanks for your suggestions. I have only modded once (trying to fix a problem with a workshop asset) but it became a mess and became unusable for me.
  2. While i am still tinkering with my last city, i have started a new one. Trying to incorporate some curves and break my habit of square grids. This one has a more European and low-density theme, although at some point i will have some more modern districts.
  3. Hello all, Ever since i got CS and learn about mods and the workshop, i have been using this for my garbage: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=422712339 The problem is while it works well in a modern-themed city, it sticks out like a sore thumb when it comes to Euro themes. Does anyone has a suggestion on what to replace it with or if anyone would care to put a new, more traditional looking building skin (like a Euro warehouse, perhaps?) on it with the same specs?
  4. Which map are you using? I live in the area and it would be fun to make a miami with better traffic LOL.
  5. I STILL tend to do that although i try not to. the desire to extend all the way to the border is a thing i need to address eventually. I have been using the city to learn some tricks and experiment with new mods and assets.
  6. Here are some more shots: Over the air at night. All lit up, so pretty. My Downtown, central district on the river, the location of the palace, the home of parliament, government ministers, and the cathedral. The main tourist district, where all the attractions and tourists come to visit, isolated from the rest of the city transport-wise so they do not take out their pocket-cars and ruin traffic: A capital isn't a capital if it does not have a sprawling university campus: The central business district for trade and commerce. My city is almost 40% offices.
  7. I am pretty new to CS and this forum. If this topic should be somewhere else, please feel free to move it. I am currently finishing up my 4th city, and probably my best effort yet in terms of efficient public transport and traffic control. The idea is to create a fictional capital of a vaguely European constitutional monarchy. It is a sprawling city of 380K people over 16 squares, massively overbuilt in terms of highway and roads, a extensive subway network, a closed loop of local trains, and overlaid with a huge web of paved pedestrian walkways both for looks and to encourage as little driving as possible. I have used WAY too many custom assets to make it sharable (the list is probably longer than the population) One thing though: I have a hard time figuring out what to name it. Welcoming all suggestions. Here are some pictures of my little berg. The base map is Flatlands2.5 from Steam Workshop. Full aerial view:
  8. This is my rail junction. The inner rail loop (closer to the water tower) is part of a closed local-only loop. It is designed in a way that it excludes inter-city trains. The outer loop (the bridge on the other side) is the cargo and intercity train line that stops at one station inside the central business/attractions district. Tourists would have to transfer to another platform to take the local train.
  9. I am currently working on a fictional and modern "new" capital of a European monarchy. It is built of a flat map (flatland 2.5 on workshop) and it occupy 16 squares on a river.
  10. I have just installed the FPS mod and I decided to take a series of pics as a homage to bad vacation pictures that some people share on facebook all the time LOL Driving into the city Drinks on the hotel terrace watching cruise ships crash LOL Tourist district: shopping! Visiting the Temple Palace! Pandas!
  11. Hello all, This is my first post. Here is my city.
  12. Hello all, I am AvgUsr. I am in my 30s. I used to play a LOT of SC2K when i was a child and I just bought C:S about 2 months ago from steam. Since then I have been building cities. My would love to learn some tips and share screenshots, maybe play with other people's cities too (i am on steam, same username). I am gay, married to a console gamer and I also play WoW (although i have been taking a break).
