City planner / simulator

  1. I love the concept of this and have tried it out the only thing that I see wrong with it and this is a big issue to me and maybe others is that the layout doesn't match the layout of the game itself in which it is not in diamond pattern.
    trying to workout which way the roads and stuff go from the practice city space and transferring them to the game kind of screws with you a bit.
    I think it screwed with me so much that I ended up just drawing it out on a bit of paper which kind of defeats the purpose dont you think

    When you arrive at the site, the first thing you want to do is rotate the screen 1 time. This will put the city very nearly in the right perspective.
  3. got that have another issue now it wont let me register to save my map config

    There are many possible reasons for that. I couldn't tell you what's going on there for sure.

    link for this site states :
    It's been a fun few years, but unfortunately we had to close down. We would like to thank everyone for their support and for using it, it really means a lot that so many people enjoyed using this. There are some alternatives you can use instead of our city planner, those will undoubtedly help you a lot in managing your city.

    Thanks and good luck!

    None of this is actually true. The misconceptions about how runtime libraries work are fascinating. Only the read-only portions (the code, and some static data) of libraries are shared. And "all running at the same time in sequential (sic) order" is a contradiction. Maybe you're thinking of round-robin scheduling, but that's not how it's done. And runtime libraries are not tasks or "task files".

    I only recently started playing so I never saw the original tool from The ForgeStats Team, but the foemanager tool at the alternative link they kindly provided seems to work ok. The 2D button (to the right of the + magnifier) is particularly useful for seeing where your roads are.

    Looks like the last post here was some time ago. All links are broken now! I have found another city simulator that works well but I don't know who made it. The like is from Russia and I have extensively ran this through antivirus and malware software and it checks out. I did however, download directly from adobe and not from their link for the adobe player. Which everyone should always do unless it is a trusted and known site!
    I'm going to provide the link here for the "officials" to check out.
    I highly recommend that you let them check this out first before downloading and using this simulator!
    Just because I have used it without any issues is no reason to believe it is safe to use. The simulator I obtained may be clean but the next may not!

    I use it too and so do others. As far as I know, there are no safety issues as long as you don't re-use your in-game password on that site.

    Shouldn't do that anywhere, for anything.

    Hackers will use phony websites to fool you into giving them your account name and password.

    That is an excellent site for planning your city! (if you are into that) Took me just 15 minutes to determine that I could finish my next age with just 3 more expansions and 6 less houses. I'm a happy camper! With such substantial in-game time savings I now have much more time to hang out all day in the forum and make dumb posts. Life is really good!

    I am unable to import my city. I was able to in the past and all at once it quit working. I can create one from scratch but when I try to import it just tells me it wasn't created. Any ideas?

    Double check you typed the username correctly and you have chosen the proper server/world.

    Only thing I can think would be causing this issue. I just did it myself with a few worlds and had no issue. Could be a cache problem too.

    Hi All, is the simulator still available? Just followed the link and it took me to a domain vendor which implies the site is no longer up. True?

    I feel bad for people that need a program to help them with possible redecorating ideas, I have done all mine in my mind and even have names for certain parts like where I keep a massive row of gbs that appear to not be connected to a road, I call them end-caps. I strategically placed every single building and decoration to give the perfect 3-D illusion and even have a story about every building and a name for every street.

    I'm open to taking jobs as a city design planner and would Love to hear what people think about my city in A world.

    It's always changing and updating.

    But seriously, what ever happened to the old sim city days when you didn't have a planner and you just went ham on releasing Godzilla, tornadoes, the works, to redoe your city.

    You're joking, right? Cause not everyone is great with visualization. (I have been accused on more than one occasion of being FAR too literal, so I apologize if this is the case. I'm really not as dense as this post might seem; I just take too much at face value, so, read on with that in mind and have patience with silly me. Thanks.) And sometimes you have an idea of how things SHOULD work, but you can't get them TO work...do I really need to go on? Besides, like this game, it's a great time waster. Definitely doesn't do anything to help one with insomnia issues, to begin with. ;)
