Feel free to discuss city building games from series such as Cities: Skylines, SimCity, Cities XL, Banished, Anno, Tropico, Pharaoh or any others.
Limit discussions to the games themselves. Meta posts such as "Why don't we discuss X game instead of Y?" aren't relevant to anything and don't contribute to the thread.
Is there a trick to balance how my industry tries to get to the harbor complex?
It seems like 90% of my trucks hop on the train and clog up the station there while barely any use my freeways
There are a number of ways to do it.
The main thing is to provide good access to the highways and have good highway networks that distribute the flow of traffic evenly throughout your city.
I know you guys don't want pol shit in your thread but
My God anyone who is anybody in anno is black brown or a woman. THE FUTURE SO BRIGHT
I was making a map and didn't even notie it die.
Tried to get a new one up asap.
forgot webbum. although looking at it now it's definitely not the most efficient layout.
Yeah, I save most webms/gifs/jpgs that are posted here.
Streaman for a couple hours oldshoesbro on Twitch. Sorry for being a faggot and posting about it so much.
It was a massive disappointment for many.
Depends. Would you be ok with an anno that is only about building shit with no need to balance diplomacy and military? The only challenge left in the game is balancing budget because lunar settlements require ridiculous amounts of maintenance. Even so it's easy to overcome because the whole sector is yours so you can just spam the temperate sector full of low-level taxpayers before expanding to the next level. If you just want comfy building then go for it but if you want the whole package of expanding under pressure then better stay away. If in doubt, pirate then buy if you find yourself liking it.
new anno desperately needs scenarios like power games and such, I never understood people who liked playing continuous mode, because frankly after you get the top tier of everything there is no motivation to continue
and this is why scenarios are nice because you are always restarting with new twists
so he decided to model his city after the shape of pre WW1 Prussia?
besides all that i still somewhat like the game, but i only just got into arctic, so there is some more content for me to play through, probably will do a second playthrough too, but not more, starting to get stale already
It's good for like one playthrough. Then you realise there's nothing to stop you except for overexpanding your arctic/lunar and going into the red, and your second becomes super easy min/max.
>its the year 2205, I'd be really surprised if by that time they couldnt grow freaking rice wherever the hell they want
>this I somewhat agree with, I liked creating and protecting long routes, but again it can be waved away as "lol future"
>previous titles had unlimited resources too, all you had to do was to pay a negligible amount of gold and voila all your mines are restocked
>choosing a faction only appeared in 1 game - anno 2070, so removing that does not really make a game not anno
>research is again a feature that has only been in one title out of what 6? and unfortunately it is confirmed as a DLC
>pollution is once again a feature from 1 title, but yeah having that would be nice
>I like the building movement, casual sure, but whatever
>agreed about combat
>never played multiplayer
>agreed with this too
basically that review is shit because saying that features that only existed in 1 title in the whole franchise somehow define that franchise is ridiculous
according to that anno 1404 is not an anno game, since it does not have research, pollution, choice of factions
dont get me wrong the game is extremely bare-bones and really needs scenarios re-implemented, but that review is simply misleading
i am not saying the game is bad, what i cant understand, why couldn't they take 2070 or 1404, and build on that, to make it 1.5 or 2x better, instead they re-did the whole game, leaving lots of features out
I think they wanted to try something a bit different this time around. After making almost the same game five times in a row, I can understand why. However the Anno formula actually works every time, even if it's basically a reskin + some new stuff.
I think trying to do something new isn't a bad idea, but this one didn't work out so well. Perhaps they'll have a better idea next time.
what surprised me a bit is that people on both /v/ and steam forums were so convinced that this game is shit that they never even gave it a chance and said false things about it, major complains I saw on v
no storage - actually false there is storage, anyone who is not braindead would have noticed this
I reached the top level execs in 3 hours what a shit game - execs are not the top level and anno 1404 had an achievement for reaching the top level in 1 hour
placement of service buildings no longer matters - false it does, all service buildings generate their resource and the further away a house is from the service building the more resource it consumes so you still have to place them centrally
warehouse placement no longer matters - not true the logistics center work the same way as service buildings do
again, I realise that the game IS FLAWED, but why shit on a game before you even try it properly? think about it, those people wanted to hate it so badly that they just assumed those false points
just because you grew up and no longer enjoy games does not mean that they are shit
not defending anno 2205 mind you, still its stupid to outright lie just to shit on something
The storage is really hard to notice, maybe because for like every other game it was in the warehouse but this time they decided to be ebin hipsters and put it elsewhere. The fact that people can actually not notice a storage exists is in itself a very strong point of criticism - why change something that has been here since fucking forever and works just fine?
>I reached the top level execs in 3 hours what a shit game - execs are not the top level and anno 1404 had an achievement for reaching the top level in 1 hour
Except there's literally nothing else to do other than promote pops. Nobody to fight except for joke crisis sectors that RTS scrubs can win by 'select everyone and right click', etc.
>placement of service buildings no longer matters
The biggest problem with this is that it's not explicitly mentioned in the tooltips. If you want to make such a major change at least fucking tell us. I didn't even notice until after a while. I do agree this is an improvement, though they could at least have told us.
>warehouse placement no longer matters - not true the logistics center work the same way as service buildings do
Once again nothing in the tooltips.
>again, I realise that the game IS FLAWED, but why shit on a game before you even try it properly? think about it, those people wanted to hate it so badly that they just assumed those false points
When the game makes changes and doesn't tell you shit it's not your fault for assuming. Update your tooltips or something so people know, this is clearly developers' fault.
new anno is awesome but my pc barely handles it on low settings... life is truly suffering..
>execs are not top level
they might as well be, the 2 new chains opened are a massive joke
like 10 minutes after getting my first investor they were all 100% happy since it's a matter of plopping down 5 buildings, add some modules and 2 extra trade routes
in the previous games at least you had to concern yourself over fertilities/mine spots and to some degree challenging production chains like pharmaceuticals or bionic suits
This has nothing to do with growing up, this has to do with how removing features and challenge from games is the new staple philosophy from game developers. If it was simply outgrowing them, then even old games would stop being fun, and they haven't. And no, it's not nostalgia either. Even picking up old games and franchises I had never played before, they are still so much fun than most newer ones.
Anno? never interested me really.
then let's post cities and resurrect /cbg/.
Newbie here. First base ever. Criticism - Suggestions?
Also having energy problems, 3 sun panels arent enough apparently... What do? Build more?
I just made a new map, so I'll start a new city soon.
Tired from removing all the jaggies so I'll be a bit.
You can have a squiz at the map in the meantime.
Shot in the dark, but for anyone who still plays Simcity 4 are there any mods that allow you to plot tunnels or bridges?
I want to have my roads going under the railway in the pic but the only way is to use the level tool and make a tunnel for each one.
I know that I could do this with NAM, but I really don't like that mod and would rather not use it.
pic related, something like this but for roads and rail
good going for first base, actually. what storyteller/difficulty you playing, because that will describe your base a lot .
otherwise the design is actually quite functional, but i would make the craft rooms, storages more accessible instead of building them deep into the hill. just building a room further into the hill will increase the travel time between rooms and that in itself combined with hauling long distanced can prolongue literally everything in the game. give it a lot of supply chain thought, but then again, if youre playing on an easier difficulty, it does not really matter, just make sure there is good accessability for defense and production.
and yes, definetly more needed, not to mention batteries, that need a room for themselves. build windmills as well, youll need any and all power sources.
finished a new region, gonna go wild on this
So what the fuck did people mean by there was more/lots of content in anno 2205?
There is three production trees, just like anno 2070. 2070 had both starting factions and scientists, then later underwater with DLC. 2205 has base faction, cold people, and moon people.
I think I'm gonna see if Steam will refund this shit.
Meant to put this up. kek
I just found it way too complicated to get transit systems up when the base game made transit so simple. I like spending days building up massive regions and NAM just wasn't fun for me.
Y numero dos
Those mountains look crazy! Looks like it will be nice and cozy to build among them.
Those high-rise look really out of place, but it kinda works.
I like how you are building on the hills.
I wish more people came to this little general, I enjoy talking about cities and I don't know where else to go. I don't want it to be dead by next week
Just started a new city after my last one was decimated by a dirty water catastrophe and went Fallout mode.
It is essentially a heavy city district disguised as a comfy village tho
I'll start posting once I get my city started.
Just laying down roads and rail at the moment.
Rate my tourist drive on a scale of 1 to comfy.
I'd rather not have to start my region all over again, plus NAM overcomplicates something that should be so much simpler. All you should have to do is drag the road, not plop each section separately.
The lighting looks pretty good at night
I like never play anymore cause busy but I post the same photo to keep the thread alive, it's pretty tall but it goes by a mountain so yea...
this is an old photo so theres more roads but I like the layout.
if you want I can take pics later
id say this is a nice startoff
its got some nice views already as well
the nights always fabulous
In that case primarily build into the mountianside, and priorize creating a killbox.
i usually build what i felt like and somewhat thusly adjusted difficulty depending on evniromnet. so easy diff = hard enviro and counterwise.
Help me out /cbg/.
I pirated Anno 2205 on a whim since I never really got interested in the series before and the previous installment didn't really do it for me either.
But this one, hell I can't stop playing. I'm really into this game now. If any of you have done something similar, if I buy the game, can i transfer my save easily from pirate to legit?
The game is filled with all that DRM crap so I'm concerned.
Not sure about Anno but most pirated games have the cracker team made it so that the game saves everything on the default location (just like if you purchase the game legit). Again not sure with Anno's case, but likely you will be able to just continue where you left off once you purchase the game and install it.
Just need to worry about the duplicate registry shit for your pirated game vs. legit.
They really are. I just wish they were a little brighter so building doesn't come to a stand-still every 10ish minutes,
actually as far as i remember cities xl had light coming up if you selected building tools during night.
guess thats one of the things that helped those sjw cunts optimize performance when they ripped the game
Why not? I liked the decisions they took with the game and I'm enjoying it much more than 2070. I was confused earlier because on /v/ people blatantly lied about features being missing because they were stupid enough not to see them, so when I played it was a very pleasant surprise.
I've been needing a new city builder for a long time now, Skylines didn't do it for me and Sim City is dead.
Seriously, how do I not fuck my traffic in Cities: Skyline?
I can build as many frontage roads and highway exchanges as I want, as soon as a big number of trucks start delivering shit to commercial, everything gets fucked
Maybe after I'm done with 2205.
If 1404 is truly the better game then it will be great regardless of when I play it, but if I jump to it now I may end up spoiling my enjoyment of 2205.
This thing has helped me so, so, so much. I don't know what I would do without it.
>Extra landscaping tools
Terraforming, tree brush etc.
>Unlimited trees mod
for building yourself an airport
>Multi-track station enabler
For multi track rail stations
>Network extensions project
More roads like 4 lanes etc
For streets etc
>IPT - improved public transport
Manage trains, busses etc.
Makes it possible to apply building themes to districts.
Best way to create a good look
removes empty and burned down buildings
More infomation are shown like angles when building roads etc.
>No more purple pollution
Changes the color of the grass and water if it is polluted
Not even cim passes school, so you have unskilled worker
>Clouds & fog toggler
Let you remove cloudes, distance fog etc
>All space unlockable
Let you buy all tiles on the map
>Asset vehicle editor
Needed if you want to use custom vehicles
That's pretty darn neat.
Also, since After Dark has been out for a good..month and a half now, what's the judgement? Worth 15 bucks or worth a sale. Or not worth a buy at all.
Pic unrelated to skylines, but I recently started playing Banished. Is there a mod that allows you to view your population age distribution, so I can make a rough estimation of how (un)stable a population is in terms of growth/decline
My little farm town is doing well so far.
>need quantum computers for scientists
>need diamonds for quantum computers
>10k investors needed to make diamond mines
>need bioenhancers for investors
>these are built on the fucking moon
>can't get to moon yet
Bretty good but LOTS of major gameplay changes. Doing quests is also actually important now since you need the quest only resources to not spend a fortune in both money and land on factory buildings.
Holy fucking shit these power and trade costs. Finally got my investors though so I'm back out of the red. That fucking reactor though.
This is a good list. Only things I would add are;
>Fine Road Heights
>Road Color Changer
After Dark is very much worth the money, even if it is just t support the devs. It is the best city builder on the market right now.
Having said that, if you are tight on money, the free AD patch has enough content so save your money.
I haven't played Banished in a long time so I can't help you out there.
>have to deal with the crashed ship part
>only have 7 colonists, 2 of them die, 2 are injured
>the next day get a raid of ~10 people
i'm playing with cassandra but she doesn't seem to give me a chance to recover after an event
Just got Banished in a bargain and spent 12 hours on the damn game. Got a list of good mods for it? Also dumping my poorly planned peasant village
nevermind the ugliness of that screenshot, i'm running this on a toaster
yeah, that was dumb to build houses very close to both the quarry and the mines. I thought i wanted to make houses there so it'll be easier for the miners to go to work a la a mining boomtown but i guess i went overboard with it
I built a school beside a cemetery as well
>be me, a new cities skylines player
>lay down roads, looks good
>put down power and water
>no money left to pipe water
>repeat five times
>mfw no loans or anything
Fuck, is it supposed to be this hard to start?
Kids need to learn about death as early as possible.
Especially in such an unforgiving world such as Banished.
Don't put down anything you don't immediately need. Once you've done a few starts you'll get the hang of it.
Did anybody try this? Looks like rimworld but looks can be deceiving
Just started a new map.
Looks pretty comfy so far.
Here. have fun, post results.
I'm interested as to what will you do with the mine.
Currently planning out a harbor & industrial area expansion on the other side of the river. Island on the right is also going to be filled, but so that a nice beach waterfront remains.
The districts are pretty messy since there are lots of bizarro shaped leisure and hotel districts added to the downtown area. There are some more interesting areas though.
Chasm city should be pretty self explanatory, grown around stacked rails and highways. The sunken railway station in the middle has the highest usage rates in the entire city.
Arborea is the central park area of the city, divided in half by the downtown highway.
If you're looking for some bad time, Brookham is the place. Nested between airport, highways, railways and some light industry, the land value isn't exactly stellar. You only move here if you have to.
Only prebuilt one is the turbine stack in the middle, only slightly modified: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=527725679
Rest of the interchanges are hand built using precision engineering, fine road heights and coffee.
Thanks! I've posted some Brookham stuff earlier, but sure. Here's few.
Is Banished worth playing? I was hyped for it for a while but then /v/ kind of shat on it when it was released so I bottled my hype back up and never looked at it again. (I know, I shouldn't let them influence me like that but for some reason my enjoyment of a game just gets ruined if I see people talking smack about it like that.)
The problem with Banished is that the main challenge of the game is not starving/freezing to death. It's decent fun for a while but then you realise that the game doesn't really have much depth, once the initial starting challenge is over its smooth sailing unless you make serious mistakes. Nobody really has any needs beyond food, firewood and a house. There's some replay value in weird shit like go for the no schools no trade no farms achievements all in one playthrough, mods also add some more replayability but it doesn't last that long. Worth 20 bucks at normal retail price? Probably not. Worth 5 bucks at 75% off now? Probably.
The way the access to services works is fucking stupid.
2070 has better gameplay than 1404 except for the absolutely inexcusable AI which makes SP inferior. 2205 has some nifty changes and good ideas but it's crippled by the fact that the only challenge is in how fucking irritating it is to wait for sectors to load and no amount of DLC jewery will fix this.

Feel free to discuss city building games from series such as Cities: Skylines, SimCity, Cities XL, Banished, Anno, Tropico, Pharaoh, or any others.
i need to stop putting on ramps right before off ramps
Joystick support when
GTA mod when
I like them both.
Storymode is fun because you get a nice story and some extra challenges that probably wouldn't be fun all the time but are fun because they fit in with the story.
Endless is fun because, well, it's going to take you a few hours at least just to get to the max level, and then you challenge yourself with making all your chains optimal, or making a huge fleet, or making the biggest city, or building a monument. Whatever you want.
Basically endless I play until I feel I've had enough, which is usually a week or so later.
the problem with new anno is that there is only the endless mode, the way I played anno 1404 and anno 2070 was that I would go play my single endless campaign inbetween scenarious
i only wish the industrial zone didnt look so shit up close
So how much ram do you actually need for Anno 2205?
It says it'll run on as little as 4 gigs of ram, but I doubt that given all the map switching you need to do.
Bit worried my meager 6 gigs won't be enough.
Not that I'm actually going to buy it yet; I'm going to wait till the game is 40 bucks, or 50 with the dlc.
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but the newest patch is going to give us 50% larger zones (or 50% more zones?).
Still no tunnels in the map creator though.
>still no tunnels in the map creator
i have so many hype as fuck heightmaps saved that i can't use because no tunnels in the map editor
i mean, fuck
look at this shit
Harbor and industry expansion infrastructure is being laid down and it looks quite OK.
Are there Android games similar to SimCity? Banished? Grand Ages: Rome or Anno 2205? Anno 1404/1503/1602/1701/2070?
Something that comes close to the same kind of complexity, or a straight up port of a game, like OpenTTD, that I already have, but eh, it's not really a CB.
Maybe the amount of zones you can build or assign to residential, industry etc
Townsmen might be something you like. Been a while since I played it but it was a pretty fun game for my phone.
I used the built in one here and down sampled, looks the same
I use the dynamic reso mod for screenshots now and I can post one after this one sec
YOU'RE IN CHARGE OF THE NEXT C:SL DLC
WHAT ARE YOU ADDING?
and here's the dynamic mod at 250, unplayable of course but nice for screenshots, I still think your looks better.
I tried to replicate the situation. Lots of windows and railings at jaggies-prone angles, and used same 1080p resolution as you. Here's the result using the ingame highres screenshot. Downscaled back to 1080p in paint.
Um. There's definitely some difference here. What 3d card you got?
Weather and Seasons would be added. You have to take care of the snow in you city which also slows down you traffic or blocks roads. Also you need more energy for heating and people get more ill. Changing seasons will cause snow to melt and produce masses of water and hot summer will reduce the amount that is available.
Also a more complex industry. Industry has to gather resources like ore and oil. Then it gets refined and they build basic products out of them. Then other factories will build advance stuff like TVs and PCs.
Modern day monuments.
So something massive that takes a long time to build, and when complete completely changes things in your city.
Like for example a large car car manufacturing plant, or some kind of extra fancy skyscraper. Or the Olympics. Stuff like that.
Also extra large buildings of 5*x, 6*x, 7*x, 8*x tiles.
Also also, marketplaces. Special kind of park. Not sure what I'd make it do but it'd have to motivate people to place it in the center of the cities, or even start their cities with one or more.
Cyberpunk styled buildings, can be disabled through the menu. It causes buildings to get really tall, wifi because a service that needs to be taken care of, drones, causes buildings that are built near a highway, freeway or some other road that towers over the building to get built with the road installed into it. Like this.
Nvidia here as well (980ti), so that doesn't explain. I tried the same scene with ingame antialias turned off, but the result actually looks exactly the same (the antialias in this game is hilariously ineffective).
Obviously this means that the computer goblins are stealing all your smooth pixels.
My first colony, how am I doing so far? I got a couple visitors from a frontier town but they just kinda stand there.
You're gonna want more food.
Also, building in the mountains is secure but it takes fuckages to set up nicely and my colonists tend to snap and go crazy before the base is finished. You don't have to build in a mountain. Just make sure whatever you build only has one entrance in and out.
Its a pretty tiny mountain. The cut off at the top of the screenshot is pretty much the top of the mountain.
This area is swarming with easy to kill sounding animals, so I was planning on hunting a bunch and storing their meat.
I put a couple mods in to Cities Skylines and now when I start a new city I'm getting pic related.
The mods I used are
All Spaces Unlocked
City Vitals Watch
Traffic Manager + Improved AI
I also don't seem to be able to quit to menu or desktop through the esc menu anymore.
Please don't laugh at me.
How do I reliably make money in Anno 2205?
I'm building moon shit now, trying to make the augmentation production chain so I can ship that shit to earth. To make even two of them (just two units) costs 3000 a turn in maintenance, and then 2000 to ship them to Earth. So I pile on more executives and shit to try and get more money but then have to upgrade my other resources and yeah.
It's taking for fucking ever.
Carry on, matey.
>got Anno 2205
>It's like SimCity all over again.
I literally can't even.
Build lots of houses of medium level.
More people means more taxes.
You don't want the highest levels because they, like you said, require moon stuff.
So just get them as high as you can with local (or cheap to supply) resources.
As >>121634831 says, temperate climate is the best place for that.
You know what's sad? I'm probably still going to buy it when it goes on sale just because I love space building games.
I don't even know what image to use for how I'm feeling about that.
so, pretty much like a stripped down Dwarf Fortress? or just about any city builder after you get past financial problems?
it's still fun if you're simply into focusing on making the town grow instead and i found the colonial mod adds in a lot more depth and replayability than vanilla.
>create new city

This is where my farm workers live.
>tfw I spent my entire budget flattening a space for an interchange and now I can't afford to put it down
please explain then. whenever i have a roundabout that has about medium traffic the traffic on the roundabout stop to let the traffic on to the roundabout, instead of the other way around. the traffic on the roundabout completely stop and nobody goes anywhere.
Don't you still need to do circles basically? I'm not sure how the fuck things work.
Not that anon but I want to make a city that has everything integrated. Right now I have separate areas for city, industry, and farming, but a lot of the buildings seem like they are designed to work in as little space as possible. As if they were meant to be in or near the city itself.
It would help if I didn't have to circle due to police stations/information stations and what not.

Next time they should put an african muslim transsexual lesbian couple as the top pops, would be glorious.
is there a mod that gives you a ploppable lot that sinks the terrain when you place it? manually digging holes with the terraforming tool triggers my autism because it's not precisely 12 meters.
You don't understand man
;_;. Usually I lose motivation after an hour, or find something ugly about my city that makes me restart but that one lasted so long
Actually I sympathize, I can't even bring myself to start my new city.
Granted it's because I actually WOULD spend hours at a time on it but I'm well into paper-writing season for college and that would be a bad idea. My new map actually kind of sucks but I'm unwilling to pour over it at the moment.
I fuckin love making trailer parks, boys.
Just look at real cities and use ideas from there. You can balance traffic by using one way roads, roundabouts and so on. Imitating a real city will work except in industrial areas or train station since in skylines generates a shitload of trucks.
downtown practically laid out
got some comfy country houses outside right outside the city
But it looks different. I've got these bushy sprites, while you have something that actually kinda looks like tall grass. Is this because if the map type? I'm on tropical and yours look.. temperate?
are you trying to recreate the nightmare that is los angeles?
What's your map type? Mine is temperate.
your constant borealposting was quite inspiring.
have this rural valley village
What the hell do i do guys
Everytime i start the game i get the "getthreadcontext failed" message
I tried to uninstall all mods and reinstall the game but shit still happens, what do?
QUICK! POLICE IS HUNTING YOU DOWN IN YOUR OWN CITY!
WHERE DO YOU HIDE?
in one of the countryhouses above the city.. should be fairly calm.
so babby steps, ok
1) check graphic drivers /update/reinstall/
2) check game version /update/reinstall/
3) check necessary utilities for game /update/reinstall/
if none above works
4) uninstall and clear every leftover from game
5) download different version of game (im guessing you pirate so pirate a different one)
6) install and play
if doesnt work
7) reinstall pc

i haven't played skylines in ages
when i started a new city last night, i noticed, that i had no incoming traffic after i started zoning housing areas and such
i might be mistaken, but didn't people arrive from outside the city to then move in and all?
the houses developped just fine and people were living in them tho, but not a single car came over the highway
Could be that you highway isnt connected with the outside of the map. Thats a problem sometimes when you download a map.
no, but scrambling through my mods it appears that traffic manager isn't continued anymore
sadly all TMs made by others are apparently incompatible with traffic++
now i got to decide if i'll stick with TM or T++... decissions, decissions...

over half a year since release
still no shadow and AA + game using 8Go of ram while looking like shit
will this game ever be optimised/fixed
>while looking like shit
I beg to differ.
>no shadow and AA
You know there is a options menu
doesn't work with my pc
it's a bug and the devs are aware of it but have done nothing since some guy have come up with a cheap fix command to run on steam
but if i do that i can't play on my second screen + the game barely run anyone
fuck of I'm from Belgium
First time playing so be gentle pls
but how do I fix this traffic jam?
Remove the marked road and replace it with a 6 lane road. Because at the bottom all the trucks will drive to your industry on the right. Make a junktion in the middle so they can go directly to you industry without blocking the normal traffic in your town.
Just to check, Anno 2205 works like Grand Ages: Rome, right?
Buildings have a specific radius, and provide/consume goods within that radius, but there are no stocks, only production/consumption.
>Buildings have a specific radius, and provide/consume goods within that radius
No, they changed it a bit. In the older games you had a limited number of goods "transports" and you could save some by having chain buildings together. IE, bakers next to the flour mill. But now as long as there's a road to it and you're not out of logistics it doesn't matter.
What he said, but there's actually stock in 2205, it just doesn't show. If you hover over whatever like +# or -# it will actually show you the stock. It's not that significant though, since you can't move it around.
No, they went away from the radius bullshit. There's still a max distance (I think) but it's massive. I've just been doing straight lines of housing like this.
>If you hover over whatever like +# or -# it will actually show you the stock
Addendum, there's also a hidden stock that only shows if you're in the negative production to show how much time you have before people start bitching.
>I'm wrong, you can move it around via trade routes
Well it's still not quite like the old games but yeah.
They don't have max distance for community. In arctic, there is a defined radius and the moon shield. I think there is max distance for services like the train station and security, but it's pretty big, I'm not sure how far even if there is a limit. And of course, production buildings require logistics.
So the only grey area people need to think about is the services, I think.
