To kick things off, here’s my latest city, New Footopia!
Name: Mayor FooLiz
Region Name: AU Team
City Name: New Footopia
Slogan: An educated Sim is a happy Sim!
About My City: New Footopia was created after I made a few bad decisions as Mayor of my last city Footopia. It is only a couple of days old but so far it is growing quickly and smoothly. I just need to keep an eye on my expenses and Sims needs as it grows!
It is laid out in grids with multiple forms of public transport and upgraded roads helping to avoid a lot of heavy traffic. It is mainly residential with forms of education spread out across the city so that the majority of my Sims are educated. Educated Sims are less likely to start fires or turn to a life of crime so this helps to reduce crime and fires as well which is awesome!
This doesn’t mean I can ignore services though! I need to make sure I have police stations, clinics and fire stations throughout the city as well, I put these down after putting down a Grade School but before putting down High Schools, Universities and Community Colleges. At the moment I have 3 of each for a city with over 130,000 population. I’ve also plopped a Hospital and I’ll probably put down the larger Police and Fire Stations soon.
My Mayor Tip: Don’t underestimate education - It can help to reduce fire, crimes and increase your industrial tech level!
