Building A Self-Sufficient City In Cities: Skylines – Part Two

Welcome to the second instalment of my attempt to recreate an arcology in Cities: Skylines. As those of you who read the first part will know, I'm not talking about the bubble-topped utopia palaces of SimCity 2000 - I'm talking about a real arcology in the real world. Like Masdar City. Masdar City is a sustainable, self-contained settlement under construction in the desert south-west of…

Building A Self-Sufficient City In Cities: Skylines – Part One

Cities: Skylines [official site] is our RPS Game Of The Month for April. As part of our month of coverage, we asked Duncan Geere to build an arcology in the game. This is his attempt. Arcologies are pretty awesome, as town planning concepts go. The towering, fishbowl-topped edifices that seasoned gamers will recognise from SimCity 2000 were one of that game's most beloved features, but…

A Cities Skylines Succession Diary Part 3 – Firefighting

The penultimate part of a series in which three players take it in turns to manage and build up one Cities: Skylines settlement, passing the savefile onto the next person whenever the city levels up. Joining me in this endeavour are Jonathan Shipley and Dan Corns. This time: roads, garbage truck gridlock, smell refutation and New New Dansville.

Continuing a series in which players take it in turns to manage and build up one Cities: Skylines settlement, passing the savefile onto the next person whenever the city levels up. Joining me in this endeavour are Jonathan Shipley and Dan Corns. When last we left you, we foretold an apocalypse. Here's how The Brown Plague took 1,600 lives and very nearly killed the entire…

A Cities: Skylines Succession Diary, Part 1: Crimewave

Cities: Skylines is great and all, but I must confess to being hamstrung by my imagination, or lack thereof. Once I've unlocked everything there is to build, I kind of run out of steam, because I don't have a designer's mind and complicated road systems scare me. But a friend, also playing the game and experiencing similar handicaps, had an idea: a succession game in…

The RPS Verdict – Cities: Skylines

A floating speech bubble appears over Videogame City, signalling that the citizens are demanding something. Clicking on it reveals the source of problem: "Not enough good city builders." It seems all that have been built so far are poorly connected to the (road) network, too small to cater to the growing population, and otherwise stocked too poorly with what people want. Best construct Cities: Skylines…

Game Of The Month: April – Cities: Skylines

Did you know? Seven million games were released yesterday. Such a constant deluge can make it difficult to keep up with what's happening right now in the world of PC games, and while RPS exists to tell you the four million games you must be playing on any given day, it's possible you have even less time. What if you need to pick just one…
