yes but the trick is that the commercial jobs are surprisingly not being used ( even the industrial ), i have plenty of unemployed ppl ! But i realized something tat might be the cause of the problem: at first my city was purely R$$, but i saw i wasn't getting towers so i reduced the R$$$ and let those rich sims in. The commercial demand skyrocketed for a year or two, an then the problem emerged -- unemployment -- abandonment and low demand -- so i thought : the R$$$ must be the problem: so i cleaned the city dry of most of its R$$$, but the problem only got worse, cuz the demand had fallen down more. THEN i realized it's not enough to drive out the R$$$, i also have to drive out their employers to make room for jobs suitable for R$$ , so what i basically did was to bulldoze and REBUILD the whole city ( ok not the whole city but a good part of it ). I knew i was right cuz the commercial and industrial areas i bulldozed didn't affect the employment ! No the city's ok but i still have 1 area which is still struggling with abandonment ( that area has always been struggling with tons of problems ). And i now have a very solid budget ( 15K simoloans per month are GOOD ) so i can pretty much spend a LOT of money ( i have 37 mil $ lol ! ). What do you guys suggest i spend money on ?
