    That problem is related to the wealth distribution of your city (or other cities in your region). Sims only like to shop at shops in their wealth category. So you will need enough stores to satisfy all of your low, medium, and high wealth residential areas. And you will need your shops to have different wealth levels as well.

    When building great works, once I've clicked the "provide material" or whatever button it is on the great works site, do I need to set my trade depots to use locally to supply the great works with those materials?

    Pretty sure it just decays over time, no way to actively reduce it.

    I am also getting a kick out of using sewage treatment plants to "re-seed" my ground water for my water pump. My city is being provided recycled turd water!

Most of my supply comes from recycling, the depot remains mostly full just in case.

    i dont even have a recycling centre yet >.> no room in my city, when i have more room i will make one, thanks for remnding me.

    yeah both my mines are in really annoying place, my ore mine which is about to run out is next to the university, if the mine wasnt there it could be a nice high wealth area, but its ruining the area, and my coal mine which is going to last a long time is right in the middle of my city, right in the middle of a high wealth area, some how the mine hasnt lowered the wealth in the area.

    You should only have to click "accept local deliveries" on the power plant. The mine delivers to the plant rather then the depot I believe. I'm not sure if the depot will also deliver to the plant but either way your power plant will be stocked with coal in the depot set to export. Mine currently has 17 tons with my depots set to export coal so something is filling it up.

    How do you guys manage your traffic?

    I've been experimenting with traffic since yesterday and can't come to a good conclusion.

    Right now I have a rail system on the very edge of the city, with a couple stations on every side. Not intersecting the highway coming in ofc.

    Then there's one street car avenue that connects to the highway and goes through inner ring of the city with all 3 street car stations running. Any other ways, the street car stops would just pile up 200 minutes worth of people.

    I've tried the bus stop approach, but it doesn't seem to be as effective as I thought it would. Do you place the bus stops on both sides of a long avenue?

    I've heard putting park and ride at the highway entrance would help, but does it really?

    Btw, I still can't believe the way to solve the water issue is sewage recycling. I know it's how it works in some places IRL, but still. WTB rain fall.

    yeah, they removed the filter that never even worked in the first place. you're best off finding a region with other players on here i think.
