Population has slowed down as Chrisville's marched ahead but now it has grown a little faster. After a revitalization process, and the opening of more jobs and neighborhoods, they city has grown at a decent rate.
As remembered, Ciudad was the fastest growing city at one time, and finally claimed the spot of the largest city in the region with a population of 359,000 people... Since then, it has slowed and Chrisville took the spot but now its growing again.
Many Sims say that Ciudad is more beautiful than Chrisville. The dormant volcanic mountains, the canyon rivers, the region's only casino, and two large downtowns (both bigger than Chrisville's 2 downtowns) make the city a little more exciting, unique and beautiful to the residents of the Ciudad Metro. From 359,000 it has now finally grown to 371,000 and is now growing once again.
