My largest is around 220,000 people. Unfortunately it's surrounded my massive cities that failed so it's starting to go downward as well, so I just don't play it anymore... it's quite sad.

My largest is is an extremely dense city on a florida shaped island thingy. It's got around 300,000. I've started work on the large plots in London and Berlin, where my largest cities will soon rise.

The largest city overall I've built, was last year when I was building a huge metropolis. It was around the 550,000 mark. However, I personally don't build like that anymore, and I have to have plenty of trees, shrubs, greenery, etc. Not to mention, my triple highway and spaghetti junction takes up quite a bit of room.

On sim city 2000 with arcologies, I hit well over a million. On sim city 3000 I built a city with 300,000. On Sim City 4, I couldn't break the 50,000 mark without going belly up.

50,000?... You know you add services little by little AFTER building the initial city, right?

And raising taxes can actually stunt your cities growth or make it shrink. 8.5% is a safe zone.

^And yet it's still not real enough.

On my old computer, which crashed and I no longer have data or photos for, I just put on the ultrademeand mod and let a city bake far about a day. It got to about 2,000,000 people.

Right now I'm working on a city with about 800,000 in it.

LOL Download the RCI Super Mod!

Actually, does your city have suburbs, or neighboring cities with highways, rail, or any type of road? Usually, time can be an issue as well. But, I never have any problems getting any city above 300,000 as long as I have neighboring cities in all directions, with roads, highways or rail connecting the cities.

I always build my cities extremely dense.

My largest city takes up about half of the largest size map and it has about 600,000 people.

My next largest is on the second to smallest sized map, and half of that land is taken up by mountains and water and it has 80,000.

My last city is built on the smallest map available but still has 22,000 people.

For some reason I find that when my cities are in a slump, I increase the density, throw in a landmark or two and a couple parks and the entire city turns around extremely quickly.

Also, I try to keep a close eye on air pollution. Keeping the air clean may initially cost more money but in the long run it seems to pay for itself with increased development in the areas that have been cleaned up.

I have to admit, that downloading the air purifier was one of the best downloads I still use to this day.

Hey Pride, when you get the time would you mind explaining both the Air Purifier mod and the RCI Demand mod and possibly...if you have ALOT of time, and know off the top of your head, giving me a link to both of them?

just download that radical mod, it has a no pollution setting you check under city ordinances, and a garbage to nothing processor so you don't need a dump or anything.


my largest city was 1.2 million. it was basically unplayable.
