In the last few weeks or so I have been building in a new region but for some reason riots break out in all my new cities. In some cases, the town hasn't even run for a month and there are riots (at one point, it hadn't even registered any citizens yet and riots broke out). Then, after a month the Mayor Rating drops to the lowest it can be ... but I haven't done anything different with these cities as any others I have started and I have never experienced these problems before. But, I have been downloading a lot of content lately.
Does anyone know why this may be happening or does know if there is a file that may mess with mayor rating?
I've been building my "Montreal" for a while, I have about 350k inhabitants in several suburbs and 80k in this downtown tile.
At an uncertain point my Mayor Rating dropped suddenly to -20, while all other indicators like Desirability, Land Value, Education and Health are in perfect order. Traffic had some weak points, so I upgraded to NAM32, increased the capacity and even switched to european mass transit usage. Now most of my french-thinking Canadians travel by bus, so I believe traffic congestion is no longer an issue. Commute time is about 16 minutes in average.
So in my opinion it is a bug. I have lots of downloaded buildings, none with cheat-like effects. The few that increase MR a little are Sim Goober's churches. I tried to demolish practically everything in my city to see if the MR goes back to normal, but nothing helped. Nor did help cutting neighbor connection, planting a forest in CBD and creating a huge volcano. Is there anything left I missed before having to obliterate the city, CTD (crush the desktop) or uninstall most of the plugins?
For some odd reason, every city I build, will always have a positive mayor rating. Not necessarily being 100% as well. In fact, I have never gotten 100% mayor rating! Usually it is around 60% at its lowest and 80% at it's highest.
Now I did a test to see if it was even possible to get the mayor rating down, as it seemed very rigged after a while.I found it IMPOSSIBLE. No matter what I did in attempt to make my Sims be mad, they always loved me. I TRIED to make Sims unhappy in every single way possible, however it was still positive!
Another thing I noticed is that mayor rating will seem to go down, but after a little amount of time, it goes right back up to where it was in the first place!
I am not using ANY mods on my version of SimCity and have never installed any. I have SimCity 4 Deluxe so I have the Rush Hour Pack included with it. I've tried looking for mod patches to fix this, but I couldn't find anything, so here I am.
