About This File

This mod replaces the "Fudged population" and instead puts the real one.  Many people have made this mod but it seems they haven't uploaded it here so I'm uploading it here.  As you can see in the examples. A city of 120,000, the real population is only 18,000.  See the diffrence

 

credits

 

  • Various redditors for discovering that the population was fudged and explaining how to make it.
  • Oppie for his SimcityPak
  • And of course Maxis for its wonderful game

Note: MOD DOES NOT WORK WITH THE GLOBAL MARKET MOD

Princess Cake´s question is very important considering that upgrading CityHall means you have to have a fudge population.

 

I´ve started a whole new region and my only city has 120k pop, but only 10% are workers+shoppers+students (so what the f&# is the rest doing???) . I´m starting to believe that Maxis has really faked the pop numbers (just like Princess said) so we wouldn´t be so mad about plot size. Anyway, it´s WAAAAY worst when they treat us like fools...

The town hall does not show the fudged pop when used with this mod

I can't get the numbers given by this mod in the detailed population tab to agree with the numbers of workers given by Guillaume's extended worker mod. Are the numbers shown by this mod 'correct' or another representation? How do I know whose numbers are correct? I did this online, as I have the impression that Guillaume's mod might have offline issues.

The town hall requirements seem to scale down with this mod. Haven't encountered any issues so far. The game just makes more sense this way. Without it, you go into the population panel and see a couple of hundred available jobs - zone some residential - population increases by thousands - still available jobs...

Sure it makes the "city" seem smaller, but realistically, how many people could you fit in a 2x2 km square?

 

Looking at the population panel, I believe this is how Maxis intended the game to work before EA ordered them to increase the numbers:

      Hello,
      I have compiled a list here of the SimCity series and related games, including the more famous ones as well as independent projects and links to various other related games.
      Please feel free to mention any relevant games and link this post to other SimCity forums as I will be updating this list over time. Some of the games in the list I found in the forums here. My goal is to make a sort of archive list of any modern city builder games so if you are looking for something older, newer, different, similar, etc you can use this list as a reference. I also recommend checking out the Mobygames database - here is a list of city builder games, merchant/trade builder games and transportation network builder games.
      If you are into ancient and medieval city building games I have also posted a similar topic in the Heavengames forums here and a copy of that thread as well as a thread of linked threads in the City Builder Games forums here. The list below will contain games from any modern city building genre, as long as there is some kind of minimal amount of building involved.
      There are a bunch of independent modern city builder games so there is a lot of potential for a new SimCity sequel or new type of game, whether done in a classic 2d style or 3d style, either developed by a big company or independently. One promising example of independent development is the ancient military rts game 0AD, which can be interpreted as a remake of Age of Empires but in 3d, more historically realistic and the game will be fully moddable - so it seems there are still ways that the rts and city building game genres can evolve.
      Maybe creating a game engine, code, or game that could be custom modded is possible at this point after over a couple decades of various city builders. A game where people could modify the setting to include various modern urban settings such as a pre-Industrial age, early Industrial age, modern age, various post-Industrial age settings, alternate histories, scifi, alien, fantasy and alternate/"what if" past, present, and future settings would be interesting. A recent example of a futuristic scifi/fantasy city-building game is Anno 2070 which is included below.
      I have added some games in this list which are not directly related to modern city building. For example the Rise of Nations and Empire Earth series are military rts games, but they feature a modern age setting either in an age-progression or standalone-age game. I also added Spore and related games and programs to this list because they are and expanded version from city to global scale building. So I felt it would be interesting to include it here as it might open up some possibilities for new game finds and ideas. As some know, the final Spore game came out to be different from the 2005 video demo, so there is still untapped potential in the genre of biological simulation and global civilization building games.

      List of related rts and city builder projects and discussions:
      - 0 AD (2000, ?) - an ancient military rts game, sort of a Age of Empires 3d "remake" but better, is open for game testing and and will have the option for custom modding.
      - Glest (2004) - is a game engine for fantasy rts games.
      - Zero-K (2010) - is an open source futuristic military rts game.

      Also see:
       
      A list of fantasy and sci-fi rts and city builder games here, here, here

      So some options for new city builder games may be the following:
      - mod the existing games in some ways such as the many SimCity 4 mods for something different
      - research existing and past attempts at independent games that weren't completed and use some of the data if allowed and/or work on completing them
      - create new games independently from scratch which will take time if funds and talent is limited, but is certainly possible
      - it's up to gamers to post on various forums, social networks, and game mod websites to generate interest and potential collaborations
      - ideally an open source version of a city building game can be made where anyone can go in and mod it to add any historical time periods and civilizations or completely new settings, including ancient, medieval, pre-industrial, modern, post-industrial, alternate history, fantasy, scfi, alien, custom, any specific historical time/culture/location, etc.
