Mezaton is the name I give to all my favourite cities I make and this is no different. I used a fresh install with only NAM, CAM, RHW, SPAM, PEGPROD, and possibly SAM in the future or CAM-compatible (stages 1-8 lower pop) residential or maybe even larger industries (I bought the STEX CDs so I might install material recommended from them, most likely factories, landmarks, or parks).
Why did I start this endeavour? Because I wanted to see if a realistic population density from the CAM could support over 200,000 sims in a medium city tile. Why that? Because that will be the population cap in SimCity 2013. Just a heads up, I find SimCity 4 passé and is only playable (enjoyable) with mods. I admit that even with this bare minimum, I find it "mind-numbingly" boring and even easy (I only used weakness pays about a dozen times over 5 of my cities in this region) when relying on demand and desirability (and keeping a burgeoning industry and large ghetto).
I will do a different post for each city so I will have time to compress the pictures into JPG and upload to Image Shack. By the way, do you think I should also include Mezaton XL, my jewel from Cities XL?
