Hello there, i've just started playing this sim game and at the very beginning i've got some wierd trouble with my buildings. Basically, in a first place, a lot of my buildings just don't want to increase the density despite there's enough room to do so as you can see in the image below. The second thing that occurs very often is that new sims just dont wanna to move to the newly Residential designed zone despite the fact there actually a demand for new R zones as you can see in the bottom right corner of the second image. Those two things just make the game unplayable to me... it's a common bug? There're work arounds to solve this kind of problems? Maybe mods? Or i should just give up on this game?

Thanks for you time, have a nice day :)

The building density also depends on the capacity of the road.  If you want to increase density make sure you upgrade your road to the highest density.  Also, check your desirability of your zoned area.  If the desirability is too low, Sims will not move in.  Try placing some parks and make sure the area has access to schools (bus stops), to increase the chance of Sims moving in.

Other than that, make sure you are providing enough fire, police and health coverage and you have enough extra power and water to accomodate the increased density.

      Hey y'all!
      So often when working with prop anarchy, I can't get things to work right. All of the assets start flashing or disappearing at different zooms. Any idea what this may be?

      Hi there.
      I suppose I will post a screenshot if people are curious or my explanation isn't clear enough, but in my city there is a small section (maybe 4x10) of zoneable squares that appeared in the middle of nowhere.
      There's no roads there, but I painted the squares yellow and buildings appeared. Soon they go abandoned due to garbage/crime because services can't get there and they have no road. Now though I can't even de-zone or rezone it, hovering the zoning tool over those squares doesn't "highlight" them. Destroying all roads in the area, messing up the terrain with mountains or boulders also doesn't make these zone-able squares go away, they seem to come back as soon as the land they were on becomes suitable again.
      It's a very small zone but it's driving me insane.
      Any ideas ?

      When I load my saved games, I get a wall of water along my dams. Is this a bug in the game that happens to everyone or something strange to my combination of mods?

      So, I planted them all months ago always on 1st September but since today they started changing their leaves somewhere around October, is only in this city and the new ones I planted changed accordingly, has anyone heard about this? I refuse to delete them all. I'd rather leave them as they are.
