Got some ideas? Here's a place where you can recommend any improvements to Simtropolis. It's about time we had one of these. Even though the site continues to develop, we'd love to hear your thoughts on how it can be further refined and made better for everyone. Whether it be a simple layout/design tweak, or a completely brand new feature, post away in this thread! While we can't promise everything will be possible or implemented, each idea will be read and considered. I'm sure you'll appreciate there are limitations, both technically and financially. To report any issues with an existing site feature, or something not working as intended, please instead use the Bugs Thread. Guidelines For clarity, please keep one idea per post.

I'm really happy that the Asset Editor got some improvements. Most importantly, it seems to be much more stable now! I can do things now without crashing that would have crashed me 100% of the time previously. I can even use the Asset Editor without unsubbing to my 1000+ assets and 30+ mods. Previously, this was unthinkable. It's still sluggish, but it's actually use-able. In -noWorkshop mode, I can do "New Asset" after importing an asset without crashing, which I could never do previously. We also have some new options in the building stats window, particularly a dropdown list of monument templates (and one called "always unlocked" that doesn't have silly requirements) instead of the binary "use monument template" button that we had previously. And ofc now we can mod citizens. I'm really looking forward to some new folk to populate my world. Is anybody working on any new cims yet? Are there more changes that I haven't noticed?
This, third video, is about ways in which gameplay can be improved in SimCity by using some new elements and mechanics that need to be made by the Maxis team. This, second video, is about ways in which gameplay can be improved in SimCity by using elements and mechanics that are already in the game but need only small change This, first video, is about ways in which gameplay can be improved in SimCity by using elements and mechanics that are already in the game. I would like to have a creative discussion here, but lets try just to use similar ideas that can be done by using elements and mechanic that are already in the game right now.
