Industrial city getting more visitors then tourism one.

Hello everyone,


I'll straight out begin with saying that I do not think I'm as good as the average person at this game.
And that shows since in my region I have two cities, one is industrial that provides ore, the other one is my oldest city which I tried to make a tourism city.


Now here's the catch:

My industrial city is getting more visitors then my tourism city.


I have a friend that plays in the same region, he started it. so we have a total of 3 cities.


My tourism city has no industrial side what so ever, only residential and commercial. (+ casino's and tourism buildings)

Info on my tourism city:
Population: 127,661

Financially: Per day: 15,933 (exclusive events which accure daily)


Tourism city is buying energy, water, sewege and trash from my friends' city.


It hasd it's own police center, hopsital, and firemen.


My friends' people don't want to come to my tourist city to come shop, but go to my industrial city.



Could anyone help me out with this problem?

If you need any more info just tell me.

Feel free to check out the region, my origin name is GlacialSauce, and I am in server East Europe 2

Its all about balancing workers vs jobs and shoppers vs shops.   I'm assuming that your industrial town has lots of open jobs or lots of shopping so people are going to there to find work or shop.


You mentioned that your casino town has no industry, which may mean that it doesn't have many jobs so people are going out of town to find work. 


I'm going from memory here, but the bottom bar you have the three people icon which also shows your money, click that and then on that popup click on details.  That shows you workers vs jobs, etc.  You can see why people are visiting your city.


Also on the left side of the screen you can click the region button (above the city button), it will zoom out so that you can see your cities.  You can click the people button on the bottom bar and then click one of the three (low, medium, high) wealth buttons on the far right.   That pops up a visual graph of your jobs vs workers in a bar graph.  


This will at least point to you why people are leaving and entering cities.


Edit: To add, if people are going to your industrial town to find work, they may be doing some shopping there before they head home.   I'm guessing that even if you have shopping in the casino city, once your people are visiting another city for jobs they will probably shop in that visiting city.   You may want to try and reduce the amount of shopping in your other cities so people commute to casino town for shopping.   You are going to have to play around this.   Its a bit tricky and confusing to figure out.
