Westside

Here's my biggest city, Westside. It's a part of the london region (modified), and this was the first city I made.

I've been playing this region since the first day SC4 was out and the goal is to get the regions filled with great cities:-)

I have used money cheats, since I just want to build as much as possible

Populations:

Region: 3.494.160
Westside: 776.893

Here's first a overview of the region:




Here you see most of Westside:




And a closer view:




Please rate it

Awsome city! Nice selection of buildings and density. You placed your landmarks in very nice places too. I only noticed Empire! The street grid is nice but small in some areas. I also like your extensive monorail system!


Very cool city.


10/10

Dang! Man, that city rocks. Love the density and the wide selection of buildings.


I have wanted something like this for a while. Beaches, water, skyscrapers, and parks. Very nice city.

That area was totally demolished a few years ago (maybe 20-30), before that it was a lot denser but also really messed up. The cars could get nowhere and the area was more of less out of control. I've actualy redeveloped most of the city more than one time and I'm finally getting a better organized city now. Transpotation seems to work great too. You still see a lot of areas with no buildings, this is caused by all the demolishing I've been doing lately. Hopefully it will be denser now if I stop redeveloping all the time

Education, if your sims get more education they will increase you office demand.

Tip = you should create a good education system (schools, colleges, libriries, museuns, facultys, university, ...) and then just let the time pass, you will see the office demand increase.

But the school grade is already high and there is still a lot of demand on industry.

Is it possible to make a region with no industires ??

I have a region with industry. Create a city next to the one you want to have the office space. Place good connections and have them commute. Do not try to place only industry though. That is really hard to get a mix of. Best of luck!

PS. to have a high demand the education rate must be over 120 and even better if over 160.
