gaaah, feels so silly.

I mean, you have 200mil simloans.

 

No matter if you have people in your city or not. How to actually use that kind of money.

Does not feel very balanced.

 

And ofc, crazy that you can run the city by removing all people from it. Just have commuters i take it, that come and work and leave.

Yaaaaaaay videos!

 

Question from a newbie!. Is your terrain all solid black from a filter or because of long term polluting industries? Ive been suspecting that various land uses have effect on the green-ness of the terrain.

 

*Edit. Didnt realise the other form of newbie was a bleepable word. oops!

Yea they really need to balance the game a bit more. Its way too easy to make money once you know how to, and it gets boring for sure.

It's easy when your processor deliveries don't bug out ><

    Its black because of oil, ore, and coal mining all around the map. I believe the smelting factories and oil refineries are to blame as well.

    I think it does, I've noticed that when i place a bunch of sewage outflow pipes next to each other the ground turns a nasty brown.

  • Here is Part 3 of my Let's Play Sim City series, where I make an electronic city.

     

    In this video, I start with less than 500k, and then I make my first million, but run into a lot of problems. By the end, the problems are all fixed, and I have made over 4 million simoleons, and have set the groundwork for even more.

  • Here's Part 2 of this latest Electronic City I'm making.

     

    I run into the dreaded "workers needed" problem, and my mines shut down, making my city suffer and even go bankrupt! Luckily I manage to pull through and fix most of it by the end.

  • Part 3 of my new Electronic City!

     

    After finally fixing my ore mines, I re-arrange the traffic in my city, only to have the game force me to get bonds because I run out of funds. I manage to pay everything off, and increase my profits to 300k+ per month.

  • Part 8 - Return of the Zero Population City

     

    I continue to rebuild the city, and finally get rid of all the residential areas, leaving the population at zero. My income also manages to reach over 6~6.5 million per month.

     

    Edit: Video is still processing, but its up to 1080p at the moment, just lacking thumbnails.

    my money strategy is to always get 1x processor factory and 2x electronic factories. That will get you 1.5 mil simoleans per day super easily.

    OMG this is the craziest strategy ever. I never thought of it would work, making arcology and then bulldoze all residentials. I will try it tonight hahah.

    I notice that you are only selling computers, this will not maximize your profit.

     

    From my experience, 1 electronic factory with 4 computer modules can only produce as much as an electronic factory with 2 computer modules. So just sell computer and tv concurrently, this will maximize your profit.

    I never noticed that. Is that true with all spec. factories?
