Snowfall, Nightlife add a lot to the game, typically mid-game to late-game projects.

Natural Disasters is decent, but doesn't really add too much, unless you like disasters.

Mass Transit is also coming out on the 19th if you want to hold out.

As for mods, not sure. Try either the Steam page or the Reddit.

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.

Thanks!

I did get the disasters, and tried some of them out on manual mode. You know, making a meteor crash way outside of town, stuff like that.

I made a big mistake, though. I didn't realize how long a delay there is on tsunamis, so I clicked that one a few times to try and get it to work...

A long time later, my entire town was nearly destroyed from all the tsunamis rolling in one after the other. Tons of my population died, the highest land-value area I owned was flooded for years due to its low elevation, and the game asked if I wanted to accept a bailout. I didn't, and now everything is rebuilt, but man that was frustrating.

So, Mass Transit is essentially Rush Hour.

Hopefully, unlike Rush Hour, most of its new transit systems won't be useless. This game is on point with transit in general, though, so I'm not worried.

Don't put your water pumps downstream from your sewage exits and you'll be good.

What, you mean putting them next to each other was a mistake?

Water pollution and current flow are actual mechanics in this game. If your water pump is sucking water in from polluted water (either from proximity to sewage drains, or being downstream of it), your people are going to get very sick.

The best spot for your sewage drains are at the edge of the map where the water flows outward. Let it be some other town's problem. tongue

Oooooooh, that explains all of the ambulances going back and forth.

Shouldn't have named my town Pripyat.

Anybody got any advice for unlocking the Pyramid of Safety?

It says you have to experience a disaster and suffer no casualties, which I've done many times, but no unlock.

[up][up]Do you have it on Steam?

If so, try this. Go into your Steam Library, right-click on Cities: Skylines, choose Properties, click the Set Launch Options button, and paste "-force-d3d9" into the text field (without the quotation marks). Then try running the game again.

Hmm. That fixed it for me, so I don't know what the problem might be.

I have been getting the hang of the game after a week or so. Have a small city with a population of 25K and rising. So far I seem to be managing the balance of population, industry, and commercial sectors but I am certain I can better balance them. So far my traffic isn't too horrendous. I had to completely rework my industrial sector with carefully laid out one-way roads to ensure smooth flow after a fire got out of control and industrial traffic blocked fire truck access. Pretty much burned down 3/4 of the industrial area. The smoke detector provision and road rework, however, it became a lot less problematic. Right now my industry is forestry oriented but I am looking at creating a "dirty industry" sector with a carefully spaced and filtered by trees high-density worker community nearby.

I have noticed this game has some serious stability issues like freezing and crashing on save and sometimes on load. A lot of people have complained about CTD for no known reason and I have experienced a few myself. I did set to use to DX9 in the steam settings.
