About This File



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.




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)

      Make a Road Construction with Contraflow traffic | Cities Skylines Indonesia
    • By KaolinSunda
      One of my biggest problems with my cities as they grow is traffic.  I've tried subways and (with many issues) elevated rails but my success has been hit or miss.  My latest try was trams.  They have been very helpful traffic wise but they appear to be heavy polluters.  I thought - without any prior knowledge mind you - that trams were a more green solution than regular rail so I was very surprised.  Does anyone have good pollution management in place for their trams?  Please let me know if you do. Thanks
      p.s. my "many issues" with elevated rails has been with rail stop connections connecting to the rail tracks.  The "many" in that is I've tried several different versions with limited success.

      I never thought this would be my first message, but...
      I've been playing Cities: Skylines for a week now, and I'm really deep into this city. The problem is is that the traffic flow is getting worse and is abysmal in many places. I have literally no idea what to do, and I completely gave up on trying to fix it. I was wondering if anyone on this forum could give me advice on how to fix the problem areas, or better yet, get the file and fix it for me.
      Note: If you're going to take the city and fix it, you must know that I have infinite money, everything unlocked, all 25 tiles, a sub-building mod, and the World Trade Center

      As some of you know I've been playing without the illustrious NAM while I learn the basic game. For the one or two other peeps on the planet who might be starting out NAMless, I feel the following might be of some use. The rest of you may feel free to skip this long, picture packed mini observation.
      So, I've been playing a natural (random) growth region in which I've zoned mostly farms that are interspersed with the initial god mode trees to simulate the real world where I live. (For the curious my progress starts here and continues with several posts over the past couple months there in the rest of the thread.)

      This post is not about that tho. This is phase two where the industrial revolution has started and factories are pervading the countryside.
      The Acres family farm is a short distance from a major four lane highway. They are planning to retire and haven't set out any crops this season. The Big-O Factory Development Corporation has purchased the farm (dirt) cheap. The Acres's sell with the condition that they can keep the small tractor shed and a tiny parcel of bare ground.

      ^ Yes, there is an Ugly Yellow Pause Thingy in some of my pics. I like it sometimes to indicate, well ..., that my game is Paused.
      The development begins with building the streets and adding bus stops.

      Next they add a water system.

      And then survey it from above ground to be sure all of the parcel is watered. Some nearby residents get public water as an unintended bonus.

      The building locations are prepared by de-zoning the farm ground.

      The Mayor has specifically tweaked the tax rates to create the desired demand. (Note: These settings are not some magic set. They are based on the local and regional influences at the moment.)

      Using Ctrl-Zoning (as described in the Tutorial:Precision Zoning) the hope is to attract larger factories and cramped living quarters for some workers along with some low density commercial so they can buy some bread.

      We check and see there is a nearby Medical Clinic and boost its funding sufficiently to handle the increased patient count cause the radius includes a part of the new residential zone.

      Now we turn on time and wait for the factories to grow. The Sims aren't overly enthusiastic about moving here so we plant a grass tile. These uneducated Sims are just wild about such a thing.

      Now to zone for more residential and add a local Doctor's Office. I did the zones separate to preclude 4x2 buildings from growing.

      When the Tenements grow (which is the look I wanted for here) I click them all to Historical so they don't later try to merge together and morph into a bigger building. I did zone them high density so I can change my mind about it in future years.

      Then I zone the final two residential parcels.

      Plop a bunch more pretty green grass and the Sims rush in.

      And fill in the rest of the area with grass and a playground for the kids.

      A wee bit of traffic congestion occurs.

      Not to worry, says Jamil Herd. Upgrade those parts of the Streets to Roads.

      All better now.

      And here it's completed.

      Set the medical funding at an appropriate level for the new Clinic.

      But wait! say the local denizens. You said this would create jobs for all of us. The outsiders took most of the jobs before we even got moved in.

      Hmm. Ok, that latter statement is prolly an exaggeration, but who is working where? the Mayor asks.

      Jamil, bulldoze a piece of that Road. That'll keep the interlopers out.

      Well, that hurt the factory jobs some.

      Yeah, but let's see where the peeps are working now.

      Rebuild the road and run some more time. Here's the jobs graph.

      Alright then. Where do the local Sims work now?

      Run a bit more time and here's the jobs graph.

      And, finally, we see a significant reduction in traffic coming and going from the new industrial complex.

      The total commuters from the 6 residential buildings in those three stages are:
      563 initially 575 during isolation 599 final And the total commuters on that entry road
      1383 initially 697 final So, it appears that without NAM one needs to take into consideration who's going to work where and where will they come from, or go to, as one of the key aspects of the amount of traffic.
