I don't think we've actually gotten any detailed info on how the school system works, but we do know that education does play a role in your cities.

If I had to take a guess, schools will probably work similar to hospitals and other services. Plopable buildings with upgrades with no predetermined radius of influence.

  • So no radious means all the kids living in the city would go to that one school i'm assuming

    Again taking a guess based on the other services:

    With the new traffic simulator, the school will probably send out buses to pick up kids. The buses are actually being simulated on the streets so they're limited by how efficient your transportation network is. Lots of traffic will slow the buses (and everything else) right down.

    Theoretically you could have an entire city serviced by one school (assuming there's no limit to the capacity of the school, which I would imagine there is) but it'll probably be smarter to have multiple.

        For the first I did try to find about how to mod sim city 2013 + cities of tomorrow, so I try here to find out more how to do it.
        If am want to change a small police station to have a helipad with 99 helicopter ?
        Where do I go to do that ?
        I know to get SimCity-Scripts_287520926.package/SimCityDLCEP1-Scripts_287520926.package, and how to export to new package (I click on a file then a popup menu up and find export to package).
        If you know the links for me to know so I can do this type of moding let me know, thanks.
        My problems is that when I have more then what is max (car, tower, garage). it's disappearing from the game.  I can have more omega drones but I can't prevent disappearing from the game, yet.
        Edit: I guess there is no one who care to help me out.

        Good Morning,
        Whether for good or bad I've purchased Simcity Complete Edition, which includes Cities of Tomorrow.

        For the life of me I cannot locate any forum threads on issues pertaining to the version I own.  It's supposed to include the an expanded core game
        and Cities of Tomorrow (COT).

        I have  been known to be a newbie over the most obvious, but would appreciate someone pointing out where MODS, STEX buildings I should be able to use.
        Thank you all so kindly!

        What is this?
        I'm getting almost zero anything because of this and it always happens. The Great Works is the best choice for me but all it does it this.
        I have a whole city pumped but in the midst of that; this happens and my city turns to the negatives. I've been sitting here losing almost
        300k an hour trying different things. I just can't. I need that assistance but this happens.
        Does anyone know what could be done?
        I need that Great Work D.

        It's time to ask the question that we all want to avoid. Is Simcity 2013 dead? In my opinion, yes, it is. I will be upgrading to Cities Skylines soon, hopefully. Farewell to Simcity.
