City-building game(s)

Found 10 results

  1. I've been noticing for a while that every time that any of my cities exceeds maybe 400k citizens, the usage in public transportation significantly drops (for example, at some point I have 10k users in the subway system and then in goes down to less than 5k). Does anybody know why is that? I've been trying to encourage the use of public transport by increasing the budget to 150% and setting the free public transport policy for the whole town, but it won't help. I always try to design a multi-modal public transportation scheme, and it works really well (increasing number of users, reduced traffic congestion, etc), but then this happens. I have also noticed that traffic congestion is very well controlled, even with the low public transport usage. I've been looking for an answer for this like crazy, but it seems that anybody in the internet ever has had this issue before, and it's driving me nuts.
  2. Noon in Goblinton

    Heya! REPLIES: @Themistokles, thanks for this nice comment! To setup a good local public network is one of my goals while planning a town, and here it is for free. The price - slightly higher taxes, so car drivers aren´t favored. The money is for all kind of traffic, and luckily in CSL now we have road maintenance staff, and I have to deal with both parts. But the reason for my city to look great is, cause I can use great models - the same like in SC4 (the most original houses don´t look very realistic). But building is much easier than with SimCity. The system is totally different, and while you have much to much inhabitants in SC4, here you have only a few people living in the biggest buildings. Growing a town is done in a few hours, only you have to look for preservation before the next stage kills your attempt for beauty... @korver, thank you too! And yes, the night in C:SL is really impressive and a good time for shooting pictures! And thank you all for lurking into, and also for the five stars! It´s a good feeling to show something, if people seem to like it. But don´t be shy, I don´t bite... And now to the first update! I usually use an external hosting site, but sadly my pictures seem to dissapear at ST, so I can only show a few pictures instead of a whole bunch. I tried to find the best ones for today, a not so easy task, as Goblinton is steadily growing. The first pictures show the main station again and tracks and bridges and tracks. West of the central station the line is built on bridges: Then it enters a dam to split in different tracks: The station itself had to be built on a massive embankment: Here you can see the station street entering the plateau: From here on the line leads forward on a dam to the main goods station (that I will show in another update): Now some pictures of typical town life in Goblinton. First a busy street crossing at noon (you can easily spot the masses entering a tram here): Wherever you look - people like to use the local public transport, it is still noon: Every town has it´s ugly parts: Another ugly complex but people like shopping: Yeah, that´s for today. The limit has it´s good sides - I have to make more updates... I hope, you like it! Seeya, Carl EDIT: I have no clue, why the pictures always get doubled but they do. I´ve edited both entrances two times and I did not get rid of the masses...
  3. Hi all! I am wondering if anyone can help me, I have two areas that are causing me troubles. I don't even know if what I want to do is possible. I'm trying to connect EL over Road 4 to EL over road (Maxis regular) crossing over an intersection, but it seems to elude me. What am I missing? I have the current NAM, did not choose "alternate" for EL and do have the puzzle piece that is supposed to connect EL over road to either EL over Rd4 or Ave, but the EL doesn't line up on that piece with the EL over Rd4, so I'm a bit lost. I have LHD, if that makes any difference... Also, in the second troublesome area, does anyone know how to connect EL over road, through at T intersection to just plain EL? I cannot get the puzzle piece to connect to the regular EL. If the two pictured configurations I have set up at the present are impossible, does anyone have any suggestions as to a better method or configuration I might try instead? Either way, thanks in advance!
  4. 7. New Tram Line

    Thank you for visiting
  5. So, I saw this picture (below) in der Nieuwezee Nieuws, and it inspired me to write about public transport in our town. Don't worry, nobody was badly hurt - and the buses here usually run without crashing into bus-shelters! So, you know that Nieuwezee always had the one old tram-line, running from the Old Town to the Peninsula... then extended to the Harbour in the 60's/70's. And when they built the Oosterpolder, a second tram-line was extended to cover that district. The second line saw brand-new trams introduced to the city. Here's a crowd of spectators trying to board Tram 2 at the Oosterpolderplein on the first day of service: Our new trams are much more comfortable and spacious than the old ones from the 1960's. I'm not sure I like the new red-and-blue colour scheme, though. I think it's supposed to represent the colours of the Dutch flag, or something... There's no denying it though, they're better than our old yellow trams. They were noisy, and draughty... :/ So that's Nieuwezee's trams. Well, we also have a number of bus lines! Some of these are old, traditional routes that have stayed the same since the early 20th century. But the latest routes, have only been added since the Oosterpolder development and the construction of the Biotech Campus across the river: Here's the new campus, and you can see four types of Nieuwezee public transport in one shot. At the top of the image, a Regiorunner 'Verm' double-decker train is heading towards the station in the Old Town. Near the centre, you can see one of the University's yellow mini-buses parked outside the Student Union building... The campus provides its own private 'on demand' transport for students and staff. To the left, you can see a tram approaching the Campus tram stop, which links to Tram Line 1 via a short spur (approx. 750m). And to the top right, you can see a 'bendy bus' pulling away from the stop at Westerhuizen Rotonde. A tree-lined walkway links the bus-stop to the campus. If you're curious, here's a route map which shows how everything hangs together in Nieuwezee: And if that wasn't exciting enough (!), look at this: It's one of our brand-new bi-articulated trolley-buses! The council have been electrifying the bus routes between the Old Town and Oosterpolder, now routes 10 and 11 are (mostly!) run by trolley-buses. They're almost like trams without the tracks. "So why are there tram-tracks in this picture?" you may ask! Well, this is the corner of the Poldergracht where the no.11 bus turns across Tram-line 1. See it on the map? All-in-all I'd say that public transport runs very well in Nieuwezee; with all these modern trams and buses it's better than it ever was, and we have excellent connection to nearby cities like Amsterdam and Hoorn. But now the authorities want to take things 'to the next level'. Oosterpolder has brought new wealth to Nieuwezee, and the Bio-tech Campus is encouraging expansion towards the South-west of town. As a result, the regional government is seriously considering changing our town's status into a City, and real money may be thrown at stages 4-5 of our Strategic Development Plan. This would mean bringing High Speed Rail to the city, and zoning for even more development in future. So, it looks like Nieuwezee's adventures in public transport are only beginning!
