This is a new thing, not cities xl.

It's pretty good! They got so much right.

 

 

Ahh, I assumed it was in the (old/other) Cities series, with Skylines just being a fancy name for the latest entry.

This game is fun. It's like classic Sim City but with awesome road tools.

 

I tried building a town to be as shitty and unpleasant as possible but still have growth last night. Only used dirt roads. Crime soon hit 45%. Things started to get interesting when i got close to 5000 population. Thanks to having landfills and industry in the center of town and no clinics a public health crisis happend. I lost 2000 people rapidly with their corpses rotting in the streets. Even after building 3 hospitals i had over 2000 sick people and only 300 hospital beds. Thanks to drastic budget cuts and tax raises i managed to turn still a profit. There was dead, decay, fire and crime everywhere. It was like managing an African town during Ebola outbreak. Eventualy i cashed out with over 130k $ in the bank and almost all citizens dead.

I actualy got an achievement for being a most unpopular mayor. :v

 

I started to build a serious city last night tho. I can really recommend the game if you liked Sim City when it was still good. This game feels very similar but what i like most are the road tools because you can make cities that have a very natural looking layout. The modding scene also seems to become strong but i haven't even dived into this yet.

Looks excellent, I might have to get this. So it has actual gameplay unlike the other Cities series which seems to basically just be building?

I wish they'd figure out getting this genre on consoles and/or tablets though, it's the key to its future.

The game has nothing to do with the other cities games, it's a different developer and IP - just super weird naming, how they could not see this coming is beyond me, unless it was intentional somehow :o

 

I played sim city 3 on my phone for quite a while, was pretty good actually, perfect game to play when stuck in an airport ;P
