Two Questions

6 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Firstly, when a city gets to 90-100k, how do you deal with traffic? I have a pretty good layout and considering the population its doing ok. However, theres still a LOT of congestion. I have one fully maxed out streetcar depot and no bus terminals. If I add another streetcar depot will it reduce traffic? Should I add a bus terminal?


Secondly, my buildings are constantly burning down! My sims are quite educated so not sure why that is??


Thanks in advance!

  • Umm...add a bus terminal and place bus stops, that should ease the traffic a bit. And your buildings are burning down becasue your fire trucks cant reach their destination in time.


    Would buses not add to traffic though and make congestion worse?

  • Added an extra streetcar depot and a bus depot. Population is now at 125k and traffic is pretty good.


    A big disappointment though, is that all my recycling trucks all follow eachother. I thought this was supposed to have been fixed after the last update. :lost:
