  1. [FORM] - Need some help for my reseach paper

    Ah, thanks! That does seem quite interesting. About the focus... Well, I actually lack concentration as I now need to write the entire paper in 10 days. But that's fine, for me - I've had 20p long papers to write in a night for the past two years so...
  2. [FORM] - Need some help for my reseach paper

    Show us threads? What are these? I'm very new to this forum so I'm still a bit confused. I've tried to look around some discussions but they were mostly questions on the games or tips to improve your playing. Thanks for your help anyway - I already have some answers on my french form so it's alright as I don't need hundreds of them. If I was preparing a PhD, it might have been useful - I already had some pretty clear idea on how to analyze different screenshots, shot from the same perspective, to highlight some patterns and design some "common" city that player would reproduce. But well, I now have 2 weeks to finish writing it so I'll just go faster and provide some in-depth analysis from those contributions. It will be fine too. Sadly, I won't be able to use screenshots (or journals or other text ressources) from other games. I wanted to, at the beginning, but gladly I was told not to and I can see now that it would have taken another 6 months of work at least.
  3. [FORM] - Need some help for my reseach paper

    Thanks for your answers! When I mention "finished" city, I mean considering your city where she's more than three roads and a couple blocks. Of course it's probably never going to be over, as you will want to add, delete, change some parts of it - or the whole city. But that's exactly what I'm looking for: screenshots and comments about how you consider your city at this point. Maybe the word I chose wasn't the best - but eh, I'm French, my bad! It makes more sense in french I guess. Matias, thank you for your kind words. I'll make sure to roam around whenever I have more time - which is not for the next 2 weeks obviously. I considered using videos or "journals" about city building and game experience - but I think there is a bias in the way that this is purposely written or recorded to be read. It's not as raw as I would like it to be. Also, there is this consent/"copyright" issue that could be quite a big deal in the end so... a form seemed more suited for my research!
  4. Hey! I am currently preparing a research paper, as a French student in political science and urban planning, on the representation of cities in video games. More specifically, the purpose of this study is to understand how players perceive and picture a city by building it in city builder games, especially SimCity 5 and Cities: Skylines which I will use for this research. The raw material I need are screenshots from the game depicting your city in either of them; you can send one to ville.et.jeuvideo@gmail.com, preferably when you think your city is “done” (but feel free to add any other screenshots of your city’s intermediate stages!), while specifying which configuration you chose (which map, which game mode – classic or sandbox -, …). If you are going to send several screenshots, please specify in your email which city you are going to mention next. Thus, if you are considering building a new city on one of these two games or if you are in the process of building or have done building, sending these screenshots will allow me to analyze differences or patterns in the cities built by players for instance. Moving on, I invite you to respond to a questionnaire (that you can find here : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScsHaBYohZ6jQ4QRvjwaTZ7vhVQNpOHVebfbqFBopSxut46hw/viewform?usp=sf_link), based on the screenshot(s) sent previously so that you take your analysis to the next level. If you’d also be interested in an interview on Skype, or in answering more detailed questions through email, just let me know! Feel free to add any other information that you might consider relevant, in addition to this form, to my email address (ville.et.jeuvideo@gmail.com). If you want to have some feedback, let me know as well. Thank you for your time
