My journal is going to be different. I want you to be mayor; however being mayor is never easy.
since there are billions upon trillions and zillions of sims and only few real humans in this world; i am going to take what you feed me upon the world of the sims and try and reproduce it the best i can.
You say make it more like Las Vegas... so i drop a couple nuclear bombs just out of town in Sector 3:
and then i let the game run and see a simple connection has bought this region together... the sims begin developing regions... non of which have mayors yet... but could in the future... we now have region wide ferry support:
and someone said they wanted to see the racetrack...
so i rented the coper for the day in sector 2:
And even got really close to the track... too bad it wasn't race day...
And had to wait nearly 2 hours for this fellow to clear the landing pad:
however, while I was in the air i saw the road connection that linked to district 9 (in the middle of the night!!... geesh... waiting):
I made a safe landing and took a look at my region map:
I was asked to develop the fist 'hard' city: zone 33...
and when i loaded things were good....
just build a quaint little town for the sims to retire to...
but then things got weird...
the colors started to change:
Day turned to night... up was down...
and sent me to District 9 before it even started to sprawl
This was the only picture i was able to take before it sent me back to a region map:
even my trasnsport map was acting strange:
cities set on 'hard' are going to be difficult...
I rest before proceeding to Distrcit 9
District 9 was told to sprawl out... and began developing farm land, industrial zones, and residential neighborhoods:
And indusrty streched toward the borders:
And sprawl means develpment so:
Zone some more:
and keep growing:
And remember... it takes a little farm land:
and a lot of zoneing:
And more zoning:
maybe a few windy roads:
then wait a few days and decide how to make things more efficent:
Then develop some more...
And as the sims realize more without being educated they begin to realize in the land of sprawl... the more the merrier:
(It's just a couple flashing lights and sticks on levers... but it saves the cars from the trains so they make it work...)
Current region stats:
All cities have been run a total average on 1 year
No cities have mayors yet
2/74 Zones has been settled
2/3 Sectors have been settled
7/34 Districts have been settled
Shameless advertisement for never before seen Zone 10:
4 areas are in desperate need of a direction: District 15, Zone 38. Distrcit 16, and Distrct 21.
Every once and a while with spread comes opprotunity so 7 new areas have been connected because of resorces... Distrcit 12 has a rail connectiion; distrct 26 and 18 have a highway connection, District 15 and 16 a have ferry ports; and zone 28 has a new avenue connection (linking District 15 and 16)
