  1. Here's what I did so far after posting this. 1) I deleted almost all my connections with neighbour cities (those that sucked my sims in) 2) played the neighour cities for a while so that sims in those cities occupied almost all the work 3) reduced $res tax, raised $$ and $$$res tax, transformed some of commerce into res, built new res, raised $res in about 300k, so right now it is 400k$ 700k$$ 200K$$$ approx. ( I still have to move in more $res right? 4)i've recconected one city so far and it's been ok, haven't seen many commuters from the big city to that one. i still have got a huge ammount of available jobs, i'm gonna connect the other neighbour city (hope it works) and perhaps start a new residential one next to the big one because I haven't got much space left in the big city. I'll also build up the mass transit system, it's kinda obsolete because i haven't updated it yet with the new NAM stuff. but this is working so far. I was blown with the commercial demand that the cam pack added to the big city and just couldn't handle it. thank you all for helping me. I will update on this later so people know if it worked or not.
  2. Here you are, consider that in the center i recently deployed some residential, so before in the middle i only had commercial. i also put in a screenshot of traffic. i suppose i could make it better but it's not bad now is it? thanks for the reply.
  3. Sounds like you have rather a lot of R$ and not many higher Sims. These guys want to work in industry until they get enough education and experience to work in higher jobs. Check your education by age graph. If you created this city by plopping, then this often happens to the unwary. the residential goes as following: 150k$ 700K$ and 170k$ i've been trying to clear out any possible eternal commuters because i think I had some. IMHO, you don't have enough R$. The ratios should be R$:R$:R$ 15:25:60. In an C$ building you will employ only a few R$ (upper management), probably less than five. To check for commuter loops look for transit lines that have more users than population of the city. If this happens, just break some of the intercity connections, and change the layout to a tree structure with no loop-backs. That is, it needs to be impossible for a Sim to exit the city on one line and come back on another. okay I'll drop the $res tax, I had only a 2000 people as eternal commuters but it was a hell of a ride for them, i've dealt with them as i've seen in an eternal commuter problem solving tip online. I haven't played with my big city yet to see the result because i was waiting for more tips. that seems like a very good tip. I was intentionaly holding back those poories not knowing of that. thanks very much for the tip. do you think deploying residential areas in the edge of the city might be wrong if I want them to work in the city?

  5. Hi guys, I'm new to building huge cities and i'm having huge problems of my commuters in my big city with 1M pop, 900k commercial and 0 industry jobs going to work at neighbour cities that only offer manufacturing and dirty industrial jobs. I've planned this city after the big metropolis we can find on earth which is with lot of commercial buildings in the center and residential in the suroundings thinking that the population would commute to the center but instead they commute to the borders leaving my commercial buildings in the middle with no commuters. Now I have hundreds of thousands of available jobs in my city and I'm finding it difficult to grow more population although i've got a lot of parks, libraries, museums, all the reward buildings like opera house, main library and the rest of them. I think I have a good transit system, with highways, avenues, subway and bus but they still prefer to commute to my neighbouring cities. I had this city build with the sc4 vanilla and added the cam pack and nam mods later which really outgrew my city may this be the problem? Or could it be that we shouldn't be imitating real life cities and we should just build the commercial buildings in the borders and the residential at the center?
