[up]The easiest way to not flood your city is to not build a dam.tongue Frankly, you probably don't need it anyway. You can always just save before building. The water level settles down after a few minutes, so you will know soon enough if you caused a disaster or not.

And, no, no Demo, as far I am aware. Plenty of let's plays, though, so you can see the basics of how the game plays if you want.

Welp. I bought this, and then had huge issues getting it torun with steam popping up the dreaded unknown error. Pouring through guides online and completely disabling just about everything that might conflict, I finally notice something I missed in the spec line:

-requires 64 bit windows

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

......anyone have a good lead on a cheap copy of windows 7 64 bit?

There's some copies of Home Premium on Ebay for $50, which is about the best I can find without going into recovery disk areas.

Also, as a Paradox fangirl - good. I'm loving it so far, even if I only have a small amount of time playing it so far.

Everywhere I go, people keep saying that this game is awesome. Shame I'm in a bit of a money crunch at the moment; otherwise I'd be all over it.

Sandbox mode (i.e. unlock all, infinite money mods) is still quite difficult in this game...

I'm reading this because it's interesting. I think. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, over.

Old news at this point, but hey, looking forward to the expansion.

Bought the game off the latest Steam sale, and it's definitely worth the $20. I could justify full price though.

The After Dark expansion is out today. The day and night cycle is included for free for every owner, and the paid expansion has new buildings (including prisons, international airports, options for making leisure/tourism commercial zones, bike paths, etc.)

Neat! Tourist zones are a cool idea that I thought was missing from the original.

I wonder if international airports allow connection between saved cities.

Bought this during the sale. Really enjoying it!

[up] Which answers the question I wondered about for quite some time: "Where the hell are trams?"

I hope they unlock before the metro, because the other way around would be nonsensical.

What's nice is there will be a free update for the base game that adds fog and rain (which is cosmetic, but still nice.)

I've been wondering about a snow tileset recently! Good timing.

I love this game. It's most definitely a worthy successor to Sim City 4.

I only wish it were a little easier to adjust and place bus routes. Sometimes I don't even bother with buses, and I leave my poor citizens to whine about traffic (just like some real cities).

I eagerly await the next expansion.

Jan 26th 2016 at 4:39:15 AM

I have some extra Steam credit now so going to possibly splash on this once done with Homeworld. Only thing I find intimidating is the complexity of the road network. Looks like something you can just spend months on alone.

So, how does this game compare to Simcity 4? It's on sale for a few days, I miss my city simulator and the Simcity franchise is dead.

It's great, definitely worth buying if you're a city builder fan.

Manages an even more complex transit system without the same pathfinding problems as 4 and Rush Hour, which is a plus.

I am very amused to see a long line of people waiting for the bus...next to a burning house.

And my first corpse in the city came from the elementary school.

It was probably the janitor, Old man Jenkins, having a heart attack while fixing a closed toilet in the boy's restroom.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

I plopped the city's, Maxisfall, first Boneyard across the street from said school. "Final Lesson" Cemetery.

One thing I really dig about this game is that commercial districts are a proper source of employment. It was always weird how Simcity was stuck with a predominately industrial workforce, where like one person in twenty sold merchandise instead of assembling it.

Natural Disasters features a catalog of catastrophes to challenge mayor-players everywhere, including planning with early warning systems and emergency routes, devastating and destructive disaster effects, and caring for the populace as they struggle to rebuild. The expansion will also update Cities: Skylines with a new scenario editor and gameplay mode, allowing players to finally win – or lose – the game on their own terms.

Natural Disasters will include:

  • Deep, Impactful Gameplay: Keep your city going through the devastation of several possible doomsday scenarios, from towering infernos to the day the sky exploded
  • With Great Power Comes Great Response Abilities: Plan for, and respond to, disasters using early warning systems, countermeasures, and new disaster responses such as helicopters and evacuations – finally, a Paradox game where “Comet Sighted” actually means something
  • Radio Saved the Video Game: Citizens can go Radio Ga-Ga with a new broadcast network, helping to rapidly spread evacuation warnings and emergency alerts – or simply relax to new in-game music stations
  • An Objectively Good Feature: Scenario Mode allows players to design custom game objectives, including custom starting cities, win conditions, time limits, and more – and share scenarios to Steam Workshop
  • Chirpocalypse Now: Heck yeah, new hats for Chirper

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

Next expansion: Mass Transit

Mass Transit is the latest expansion for Cities: Skylines, the award-winning city-building game, and it brings several new systems into play to help citizens traverse their towns in speed and style. Commuters can now get around on the water, up high mountain peaks, and even through the sky thanks to the addition of ferries, monorails, cable cars, and blimps to the game. Along with new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs where lines can exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road types, urban planners now have more options than ever to add unique style and personality to their growing cities.

Feature List

  • Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s income! Let your citizens get across town in ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails!
  • Orderly Hub, Bub: New mass transit hubs can bring all of your services together, letting citizens change rail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train- metro station.
  • Become a Roads Scholar: Explore a set of new challenge scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals adds variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges. Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city!
  • New Hats for Chirper: NEW. HATS. FOR CHIRPER. (And also new unique buildings, policies and achievements. But HATS!)[/list]

So I'm thinking of buying this game. My brother has the Xbox version and it looks fun, so I kind of want to get this for myself on Steam.

Which DLC is worth getting, and are there any really worthwhile mods?
