About This File

Introduction

 

NoCarsForLowWealth modifies the Sim and SimCar packages and sets the number of possible sims for a Low wealth vehicle to be 0 - meaning that driving is no longer an option for low wealth sims.  They will be forced to walk, or use the tremendously hideously broken public transport system to get to their place of work.

 

While possible to also make Medium and High wealth sims to not take their cars, I've found through experience that this makes the game unplayable, since the sims are just too stupid to find a place to work, and you cause more problems than you solve.  Fortunately, Medium and High wealth sims aren't as many ias low wealth sims, so having their cars on the road won't be an issue.

 

To make this work effectively, be sure to build a bus depot close to the residential zone so that it will function, and then be able to bus sims to other parts of your city, to provide workers for your far away places like the sewage plants and garbage dumps.

 

I've tested this mod with a population of over 600,000 with no gridlock issues.  Pictured above is a low wealth sprawl both low density - and later, high density - and as you can see the only vehicles driving around are school busses and shuttle busses - no cars :D

 

This mod is for offline only. Attempting to use it online will cause rollbacks.

 

Instructions

 

Unzip the zip file, and place the Mods-Sim.package and Mods-SimCar.package into your SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages folder.  This mod depends on the SimCity-Scripts_287520926.package, which you can copy from SimCity\SimCityUserData\EcoGame to your SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages folder.

 

Restart/start your game (be sure your'e playing in offline mode first)

      Greetings,
      Linux user here (quick shout-out to all users of unix-like operating systems) and new to Simtropolis.
      I'd like to customize the installation of NAM beyond what is offered by the "minimal" option as presented. Essentially I'm only interested in the enhanced path-finding functions, pertaining to sims using transportation options and nothing else. Skimming through the manuals, I didn't find a detailed technical report on the data files themselves and which ones contain which functions. I'd like to know which file(s) are necessary for pathfinding so that I can delete all other non-essential plugins and components. I guess you could say I'm just an optimization geek and I follow the Unix philosophy of "Do one thing only and do it well."
      If I overlooked such a report, or technical overview, please direct me to the appropriate page as needed, I love reading technical documents!

      These lots spawn automata from the European auto new instance mod.
      They must be installed with this lot. Otherwise, these lots will not spawn anything. When plopped, these lots spawn many European cars onto your city's streets. These lots are intended to be a help for people creating C.J.s and people who want to create a little gridlock and spectacular crashes. These lots will also spawn Citroens from my newest Citroen dealer when it comes out in the next few weeks.
      Attempted to minimize the "flashing" effect of the lots.

      Please note: If you already have the European auto new instance mod you will have to redownload it and have it overwrite the older version.
      These lots can be found in the parks menu and are labelled as Euro traffic generator.
      As always, place these files and the European auto new instance mod in the game's plugin folder.

      Updated June 27, 2006 to include:
      1 plaza lot generating moderate traffic. 1 grassy lot generating moderate traffic. 1 plaza lot generating heavy traffic. 1 grassy lot generating heavy traffic.

      Now I enter in my city and I cannot see any road traffic... help please...

    • By marklcfc
      I love this game but I always get problems with traffic, I don't even have 7,000 population yet so I need to fix traffic. Roundabouts seems to help but I can't have roundabouts everywhere. Currently I have this problem for instance, its a queue to get back onto the highway. I don't know how I'm supposed to get traffic back on to the highway properly, so I just did this. Would welcome some advice.
