Monorail/Mass Transit Problems

3 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty much using the Maxis standard Monorail and Train tracks, but for some reason, Sims REFUSE to use them!

Using the route query tool, absolutely no one uses them. My Monorail tracks connect the entire city. I tested this with Elevated Rail and Rail as well. None of them work. It is, however, fine with Subways.

Please help?

There is no parking at stations other than ground rail.  You have to provide parking buildings, the standard one or there are several on the STEX.  You should also provide bus transports everwhere relative to your monorail stations (there are several of these on the STEX and LEX as well.

You don't say which version of the game you have.  If you are running vanilla SC4 without RH or Deluxe, you will find it difficult to use any of the STEX stuff.  Also, if you don't have the NAM (game version 1,1,628,1 or higher), Sims will only walk about 8 squares to get to work, total at both ends, so buses are essential.

Hope this helps you.
