Sim City still suffers from the same thing that it has always suffered from. The cities ALWAYS look way too vertical and "dense" for thier given populations. Something about the scaling has never been right.
very true... its surprising how a city of only about 100 000 can look to be as dense as uptown manhattan.

The biggest region I made has more than 6 million sims with the biggest city (several of them being very close in size) has about 1.5 million. No radical mods used.

The biggest region I've seen has more than 200 million sims, yes 200 000 000 sims. Made by someone from Simtropolis. I have a pic and ill host it if someone can tell me a website that can host large images for free (3MB)

super size your simcity

is this for simcity 4 delux? i have had over 3 mill in the largest city, over 10 mill in the region "never made it over a few regions at a time.
in order to get the max out of your tile "footage", once you have over 50000 residents, check the style of buildings and thier population. watever buildings hold only 400 or 800 people demolish them. eventually a building with a higher capacity will be rebuilt. so if you have 100 buildings with max 800 people ( 80000 ) and they change to a max of 4000 each you will have a pop of 400000. some skyskrapers hold over 10k each (i think its some of the ones downloaded from sim city exchange. still the traffic and commute turns me off but i play every now and then.

I just started playing the game again, and I've built about a quarter of the city up each time only to destroy it and start over to find the best way to do it. I have a little less than a quarter finished and have 450,000, the entire region about 530,000.

Does it matter? Not like I'm the only one this year to respond to it, unless you feel the need to be the forum police making irrelevent postings in a thread that have nothing to do with the subject matter. Now THAT'S nice.....

Forgot, I'm redoing it again, back down to 300,000. What seems to work on 3000 doesn't seem to work as well on this one.

I started back on it in the past week I have the city up to about 1,135,000 now. The region is about 1,239,000. This thing with the neighbors is new for me, I decided to make the smallest sized cities in area to be all industrial, not sure how effective it will be, I'm also thinking of adding a highway system through all the cities, again I'm not sure if it would help much. Also the hospitals are killing me, I can place 4 of them next to each other and it will say all 4 are overcrowded.
