This and previous design of city hall is a fucking things. That is too small... If you go to a tiny rural place, you can see the city hall. But a megacity like Newyork, LA and Tokyo do not have that city hall. They have jumbo municipal office.
For instance, the floors of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building are 48, and 15,000 bureaucrats are working in that building. In, S. Korea, a City hall in Kyeong-Ki province spent 1.2 billion dollars. Notice this point, please.
I got the impression that the developers were going to start off with an entry level building and allow you to add wings. Perhaps they will give you more options as the city grows larger. This visual looks like a smaller city (about 15-30k people)
Here is a link to the SimCity 5 Reddit AMA, the link is uncensored and unedited by the SimCity marketing department.
It is very important to note that without being constantly online you will not be able to play the game. The worst kind of DRM.
You would think EA would have learn't from Blizzard's experience with Diablo 3, apparently not though.
Don't support aggressive DRM. Don't buy this game.http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/14umm1/we_are_the_simcity_dev_team...
I have to disagree, I already pre-ordered along with 3 of my friends and it seems my guild from another game 4 of them are getting it. Gaming in the future, you have the right to vote with your wallet, but alas it won't stop people as myself whom enjoy a good idea. I am here for entertainment, not a movement. Keep your post at reddit.
Oh, no there is a missing sentence in my words.
* Correct sentence.
-> In S. Korea, a city hall in Kyeong-Ki province spent 1.2 billion dollars to build new city hall.
This picture reminds me of the Back to the Future/Ghost Whisperer town center.
The addition of wings and so on does seem like a possibility. In the glass box video, it showed adding on to the fire department to increase it's effectiveness. The same could (and should) go for other municipal buildings such as city halls.
I think it'd be nice to build capitol cities as well. One of the resources a city can thrive on should be government. Just look at a city like Washington DC: It was designed from start to finish as a meticulously architected city complete with monuments and museums that drive tourism in combination with government employees who drive commerce in the area. The city also receives tax dollars from the entire country to fund its landmarks and museums.
In previous installments, landmarks have only served to be an attractive drain on a city's economy. I'd like to see real functionality for landmarks in the new installment. Maybe, if you'd like to place a landmark, you can select how the building is to be zoned (for buildings like the Empire State Building, it could be zoned in Commercial) and then it could serve that purpose, or you could designate it as a municipal building to be used for city functions or as a monument to drive tourists and visitors to your city.
Perhaps once you have multiple cities in a region, you can either select one to be a capitol city and have it receive revenue from the region or build a new capitol city from scratch to serve the entire region with it being partially funded by the surrounding cities. Now that would be awesome!
i agree with blue that would be amazing to see
Does anyone else get the feeling of Sims 3 from this building? I know Sim City 4 was using Sims characters, maybe they'll have Sims 3 and Sim City merge together, in one you manage on a micro, the other on a macro. Personally, I can't wait to see how they've done it!
