so as i just said in the other thread, that button that says "show regions with abandoned cities" is the biggest load of bull i have ever seen. it does fuck all! takes for ever finding a region with an abandoned city!
we should start a mmo-c region! whos with me?
You'll take a temporary hit in taxes, population etc. But it should all rebound quickly enough if you do it small chunks. I redid a section of residential zoning to get an avenue down the center and everything built right back up quickly. I'm not even sure if my budget took a hit (beyond the cost of roads).
I've just done a little fumbling around in a city and it isn't doing very well. I'm starting to see that to create my tourist/gambling mecca I should start my city off first by exploiting industry and raw materials to build up the basics and get a decent cash flow. Then slowly demolish the industry to make way for the rest. That or actually play in a public region. My commercial zones kept closing down cause I couldn't get enough residents to work in my casino city (didn't create any others in the region).
I also really wish that the profits from the casino went straight into my pocket. Maybe they do with a gambling HQ but I wanted to cry every time I looked at the profits of the basic casino while I was struggling to get the cash to build police stations and other need stuff.

You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."
i had a tornado a while back, luckily it was in the one corner of the map i hadnt built in, like 5mins later i built quite a bit there, lucky it didnt hit then :P

are people here playing in a private region with friends, or a region with random people?
According to the week-old letsallbemayor.com livestreams, air pollution can be reduced by educating the sims (they will use less water, power, produce less garbage and more recycling), also by planting trees (under the parks, it's in the "nature$$" tab, at the end). As for ground pollution, putting in treatment addons to your water facility over a patch of brown water (not the water tower, but the other one) as well as the regular water holding addon, is apparently supposed to give you clean water to use. So having the sewage building that is just a pipe that shoots poo out onto the ground, and having it next to your water treatment plant with the filter addons, is supposed to give you near an unlimited amount of water.
Oh, and if you find yourself running out of water, apparently building water towers near the ocean/river will give you an unlimited amount of water. Of course, that doesn't help if you don't have that option, so doing the sewage thing would probably help. And my guess, that would be a cheaper way than having the sewage treatment plant. Not sure, as I don't have the game. All my "knowledge" comes from the livestreams I mentioned.
me too, EU or NA?
I'd be happy to set up the region. I'm not sure what all there is to talk about but I might have an old WoW vent we could borrow if it takes off.
So server. I'm leaning NA because it has probably had the most work to smooth out the issues. Anyone have any issues with that? We could try one more middle-ground for location if most of us aren't in the US.
Can i join? You can see my amazing city building skills..and by amazing i mean, "omg everything is on fire and covered in poop..it's prob best to just put them out of their misery!" >.<
I've been playing with random people, but those regions are just deserted. I'd like to join MMO-C region if you want to start it up, add goosie.
i would lvoe to join an mmo-c region, but where? EU or US? we got a lot of players for both, so someone can chose where to make one and put the origin ID here.

a monster lizard?!
yeha, im going to let someone else start the region i think, i dont know where to make it, EU or US. seems to be a queue for every EU server right now.
I'll tentatively set one up right now on Europe West 2. It's a new server so it's not too full. Add my ID and send me a message for an invite: sillysilly3
The region will of course be locked so it's invite only. I'll choose one of the bigger maps to let more people in.
