Getting Back to the City!

Hey there Simtropolis,

I am a SimCIty 4 veteran who was a pro at the game years ago, and used to be up-to-date on everything SImtropolis. Its been a few years though, and I'm thinking about getting back into the game again, but I honestly have no idea what downloads I "need" to make the game as amazing as it can be these days.


So, any advice from all of you current day veterans? What downloads should I look at grabbing from the exchange in order to "get back into the city" again? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)

From formerly Mayor Sim1017, thanks in advance!

If you intend to play the game and don't care all that much about eye-candy, NAM is all you actually need. The vast majority of content available for the game is cosmetic, though some custom buildings on the exchanges alter the flow of gameplay somewhat by filling in niches that the default buildings ignore (high density commercial services, for example).

  • Hahaha, how did I know the first response was going to be the NAM... I'll definitely be grabbing that for sure, but I was wondering moreso if there were any particular packs/buildings that you all think I should download? The high density commercial is a good idea to start though, so I'll probably see what's out there these days to remedy that situation haha.


    Thanks so far everyone!
