Is the Sim City we've always wanted finally here?
 
With some graphical upgrades I think this could be the perfect Sim City Successor.

Cities Skyline is yet another makeover of the game CitiesXL

( long story short the original developer went bankrupt, Paradox bought the rights and have been milking it eversince - this will be the 5th version of the same gam if I'm not mustaken )

The Cities games are certainly better than Sim City, but it's not new games just updated withcommunity made mods added..

I'd hate to be the municipality that has to maintain the bridge in the thumbnail photo...

"PLAY OFFLINE"

It´s quite ironic that they need to emphasize that, because both the original Cities XL and the new SimCity were all about "playing online" as a stupid feature of what is obviously a single player type of game (they actually just wanted the online connection requirement as a DRM) and were bashed to no end for it.


the graphical style of the Cities XL games is much more appealing to me than the more cartoonish style SimCity followed (a shame, because I always loved the "realistic" 2d graphics of Sim City 3 and 4)

Even worse would be driving it. T-intersections on freeway?

Montreal's turcot interchange moved to the river (St. Lawrence)?

Wack/lame name.

Sounds tacky/cheap like 'Queensway'. :haha:

Hopefully they add quad core support. Thats the problem with Cities XL for example that it is limited by its engine.

Looks nice.

I actually think Simcity(2013) was a pretty fun game if you overlook it's obvious major flaws. I generally liked its gameplay and art direction. I still play it occasionally. The game engine that tracks commodities and sims moving around is really sweet, if only it was scalable enough to allow much larger city tiles.

I didn't like Cities XL much. I might be the only one, but I thought the art was ugly and misapplied; the entry level street should not have sidewalks and lampposts and the european style of the buildings wasnt appeal to me. Also the gameplay was annoying.

I like the way the cars never stop at intersections. :haha:

i really think we reached the pinnacle of the city sim with SC4. It's such an agravating games at times but still better imo. Especially with the creative mods out there in sc4 to have what looked like no mod support? awful EA

MolsonExport Sep 3, 2014 2:32 AM

I still play SC4. Still the best.

This game has nothing to do with CitiesXL.

Cities XL, the newest version, is pretty good once you get a ton of mods in it. Might I say its better than SC4, if you get the mods versus a modded SC4. The only flaw keeping it from being great is its lack of ram usage, quad core support, and it also has a crippling memory leak once you get a large city which lags PC's that are even new. I have a GTX770 which I modded by 26%, and even then, it lags because of the leak.

But I find myself going back to SC4. It is so dam addicting. Its so easy to lose many hours on it and not even realize. "Shit, its 4 am" type of game. Plus, how many city builders can you built a reactor for fun and set it on fire. Not many. :haha:

Agreed, and I still play as well. The available custom downloads for buildings, transit systems, gameplay mods, etc. are incredible.

I just wish Simcity 4's zones were bigger. If the medium where the small, the large the medium, and then another size added on top it would be wonderful. Also I wish building a sprawling autocentric nightmare didn't give you excellent land values and mayor ratings...

^Download the user-generated maps and you can have 100% massive city tiles.

I still listen to the SC4 Soundtrack.
