Domino effect?

  • What effect to the amenities in a city have on the surrounding cities?

    For example, will a university draw in Sims from contiguous burgs and thus improve their EQ?

    By the same token, will an international or even a metro airport help improve commercial development in neighboring cities?

    Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    Edit: Welcome to ST!

    1. No, amenities only affect the city they are in. You must build a university in every city for good education. Same for other services

    2. Airports, same as above. You can also download the SWAP to simulate a large regional airport.

    This is all cause of the small scale in SC

    Hope I helped!

    It's true that services only directly effect the city that they're built in, but they do have an indirect effect on neighbouring cities. The indirect effect is that an educated population spurs demand which helps the entire region.

    The demand for commercial and IHT will rise with both of those, so no it won't serve multiple cities, but its ture that it benefits the region
