  1. Check out my Map

    Click the link, second picture on the workshop shows the grid.
  2. Here's a finished map I'd like to show you guys and a sneak peak at the next one I am working on. Feedback is appreciated. Download: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=509580136 New map sneak peak:
  3. Hey guys. Finally got around to completing a map and would love to hear some opinions. You can find it here: http://steamcommunity.com//sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=438122901 I did not use any height maps and it was all done by hand. Since I have not had a lot of time to actually play the game yet I would like opinions on what might need changed or added by those who have more experience playing. Thanks!
  4. Possible? I would like to change the textures of the ground as I don't feel they are very realistic, anyway to do this?
  5. Just a map I am making :)

    Most of it is buildable except the shoreline area, in order to get a curve on it I had to cut some of those blocks out. Thanks. I will consider a good way to deal with the sewage and dams.
  6. Well, this is a lot of work but a lot of fun to do. I haven't had much time to even play the game, maybe I will get the map done by the weekend and then I can actually play on it. Anyhow, these are just a few teaser pictures and no where near completion.
  7. For anyone interested http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FQPQM42/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00FQPQM42&linkCode=as2&tag=cyber-monday-discount-20&linkId=FR3N4R4PURIQOLED
  8. Next expansion?

    There's probably never been a more absurd lie in gaming history, ever. Microsoft has EA beat by a very long mile. Microsoft told us Xbox 360 from the very beginning could play games in full 1080p (only a handful over the past 8 years could). Microsoft also told us the fabled 360 hardware failures were caused by user errors and that they have to charge us to use Netflixs and IE on 360 and Xbox One due to the effort it requires to stream data to them. Sony also told us PS3 was worth working 2 jobs over at launch. Nintendo told us, they couldn't make Princess Peach playable in New Super Mario Bros. Wii due to her dress being too hard to animate in 2.5D (they really did say this)! Activision told us every version of Call of Duty on PS3 and 360 were in full HD, even though they ran in 560p. Apple claims their iPhone is the best selling video game system in world. Etc... The point is EA hasn't made the worst lines on why something doesn't work. Maxis just doesn't want to force fans to buy new PCs. If they did, believe me everyone would hate the them and the game even worse than they already due if their PCs couldn't play the game. Maxis already learned that lesson once. It can be an OPTION to play on a larger map for those with more powerful PCs, NOT that it would take a more powerful PC for most 95% of anyone playing the game because this is not a hugely draining game. My laptop which is 6 years old and not top of the line can play SC and use 60% of the CPU and Ram. This is marketing, nothing more. They want to market towards the same people that they market Sims to. This was planned from the start focusing highly on DLC in order to keep making the game good enough to be worth the cost of a $60 AAA title game in the end. This is why they have moved their streaming videos to 10am on weekdays. This is marketing, understand that, understand I have been in the marketing game for 15 years. I know how things work.
  9. SimCity: Sales / Deals

    Cities of Tomorrow is on sale for 50% off today. Still can't bring myself to buy it though.
  10. Next expansion?

    If you believe such a lie that larger maps are impossible I have a big red bridge to sell you. There's probably never been a more absurd lie in gaming history, ever.
  11. For anyone interested. http://tiny.cc/r0t86w If there's a sale on the cities of tomorrow anywhere please post it here. I wouldn't mind trying it but I wouldn't pay more than $15.
  12. Bro, I have some good ideas about how to create massive cities. I can help you work on the engine. Just shoot me a line. I'm a designer not a programmer. I will be looking for programmers in the future. If you have ideas you can PM me. I already have a lot of framework laid out but there's a lot to do yet.
  13. They can't / wont make them larger because their ONLINE mode, the servers couldn't handle the extra load and they aren't willing to nix it. Not only that but the game is so incredibly boring that people are willing to spend money on DLC in the HOPE it can be better, making large city maps offline would negate most people having to purchase DLC. I no longer have a bit of respect for Maxis. To me they are toast. I have decided I will be forming a game company to build a new city simulator, I'll be running a kickstarter on it by early next year.
  14. Should I buy SimCity (2013)?

    No, it's not. Come back when / if the maps are ever increased, there's offline mode and all the bugs are fixed. Until then it's not worth it, I don't consider this even to be SimCity, or worthy of the name.
  15. EA releases Cities of Tomorrow, can't fix Cities of Yesterday. This is becoming a big joke.
