I think it'd be cool to start in the 1800s with horses and carts and pedestrians only, and evolve technological advances at your own pace. SC2k's method of tying advance to actual years doesn't work, because you go through FAR too much time in a city sim to get stuff done. But if you could hit a button to advance the simulated era (and bring with it cars [or flying cars!], power plants, etc) I think it'd be perfect.

This might be the game for you. I have been following train fever and it seems to be bringing a more realistic approach to Transpor Tycoon, where you start with horse carriages and horse trams, transporting goods and people all the way to electric trains.

I does not have a strong city building factor, but being more like intercity/rural Cities in Motion, with wider eras.

Having the option to build with someone is a huge plus. Games like Anno are only fun because I play them with my wife. In a relaxing, "let's build stuff together"-way a lot of builders get much more. Sim City, as a shared project, is a cool concept.

I don't need leaderboards or competition, but I do want to share.

Has anyone here played Anno 2070? What does the coop "share every button, build together" take away from the game?

Train Fever looks hella cool. Do we have a thread?

People in this thread most likely are interested, since we had a Train Fever discussion in here many pages back. Anselms work has constantly reminded me of Train Fever, so here is a thread about it.

Is there a singular place for Skylines news (that kind of collects any and all sources) or is there just like a main page for blog posts?

Where has the Public Services like trash, possible road crews, poh-leece and fire-ems services been covered? What is known about them?

I enjoy Kiev ten times more than cities in the American South.
