Sim City (5)

was zum Geier... Das ist doch nen Scherz mit den unterschiedlichen Versionen ?

Och mensch, jetzt hab ich noch weniger Bock drauf :/

Und DLCs kommen doch mit Sicherheit auch...

Das ist Maxis, da kannste einen drauf lassen.
Sim City Superheroes gibts ja schon. Da kommt sicherlich noch Sim City Pets, Sim City Latennight, Sim City Zombie Apocalypse, Sim City Katastrophenpack, fünf Millionen Städtesets etc pp. Die Kuh wird gemolken bis der Euter nurnoch Blut und Eiter spuckt.
Als ob das woanders nicht so is. CK2 kommen auch ständig (geile) DLCs. Ich fokussiere auf n paar gute Spiele und die dann richtig ;)
Bei C&C hät ich auch nix gegen ne Box-Version. Brauch ich dann net den ganzen Krams ziehen.

Btw. gibt es definitiv kein weiteres Beta WE:
@moskow23 @flacwby @oceanquigley We're not planning on another beta, and last weekend's is definitely over

Umfangreiche Q&A - via:
Q said:
I'll kick it off by asking the questions that are most important to our project here:
  1. What level of permissions can users be assigned? Can I designate more than one person to have total control of the region in case something happens to the first person?
  2. What ways besides the chat box can mayors collaborate and work with each other in-game? I'm not talking about sharing simulation resources or utilities, I mean the actual ways we interact as people.
  3. Are there any built-in ways to implement a "tax" system so I can make sure all the mayors in my region are contributing evenly to the great works? Another idea we had is to set up a general fund that we could pool together for major things other than great works (like big oil HQ for our mining town, event center for our entertainment town, etc.)
  4. What are some of the other great works we will be able to collaborate on? So far I've only seen the Airport, and hints of Archologies and a space station. Anything else we can expect or will that be a surprise?
  5. How will future DLC affect the way we run our region? To clarify, say in a year a new expansion pack comes out, and not everyone buys it. Will we still be able to play together? Will people be locked out of a city that contains DLC they don't have? The best method IMO is to allow viewing of DLC, but you just can't build it in your own city. If we let people see it in action in a friend's city they might just be inclined to buy it!
  6. What happens when a player abandons a city? Say someone in the region loses interest; can we blow that city away like nothing was ever there and have someone new move in, or do they have to inherit someone else's abandoned city?
  7. Last question. Going back to my first question and expanding on the previous question, could someone have full access to a region and not have a city there? I'd like to maintain control of all the regions, even the ones I am not playing on, in case we have a "rogue" governor or they vanish and no one else has access.
Thanks for your time!

  1. At launch, the permission level is very flat. Basically there is a region owner and then everyone else. When creating a region you can choose for it to be public or private. 'Public' means anyone at all can jump in and claim a city in that region. 'Private' means only people who are invited by the region owner can claim a city.
  2. We have in-game chat we call the Region Wall. Chat messages sent on the region wall is visible to all players in the region. Message history is also maintained so people don't miss any regional conversations while they are offline. The region wall and the Ticker will also notify you of what other players in the region are doing. We also have what we call the 'Boundary UI' which is persistent in city and region view and shows the status of the neighbors your city is connected to.
  3. Not at present. You can gift money so people could all contribute money to one city who them starts the great work.
  4. Space station is actually Space Center. Then there is the arcology, international airport, and solar farm. Each one requires different resources to build and operate and in return provide different benefits to the cities connected to it.
  5. I don't know the full answer to that, but (in an ideal world) we certainly don't want to create a situation where people cant play together because of DLCs.
  6. an abandoned city can be reclaimed or restarted.
  7. At the present, you cant create a region without also creating a city in it. With that said, i don't know what would happen if you turned around and abandoned that city so someone else could claim it. (mental note: look into that)

Q said:
As mayor of a city, what kind of reset options will I have? there is obviously going to be a big learning curve here. I anticipate that I will go through a few horrible mistakes before I get things right. I don't want to hurt my region due to the learning curve.
A said:
you can abandon the city and restart it. This will affect any neighbor deals that city has going, so be careful if you go that route.

Q said:
  1. how does the trading of the "manufactured" things work?
  2. do i have an storageplace where i can put them?
  3. How do i trade stuff i made on the Global Market / another player in region?
  4. What options do the "Traders" out there have, to get the best price?
A said:
1 & 2 There are trade depots which allow you to add storage lots for each resource or manufactured good. When you have an excess of a resource it will go automatically to the trade depot if your city has one. If you don't have a trade depot, most toys have its own local storage too. If all the storage fills then whatever factory/mine was providing that resource closes and puts sims out of work.

3 & 4 trades on the global market happen from the trade depots. There is UI for the depots which allow you to import, export, or just use the resource locally. Setting up a trade with another player is a bit more challenging. You can gift resources and money to other players but there isnt UI to setup a specific trade deal. It will be up to players to work out how they want to manage resources transactions between eachother.

Q said:
Thanks for doing this teknickal - great job!
  1. When setting up a multi-player region how are invites handled? Do I send invites out for my region or do friends request to join? Is this via email or Origin?
  2. When playing multi-player, can I invite you to my region but only allow you access to a certain site? Or are players allowed to choose whichever reason they please?
  3. Are resources limited? If I go for oil/coal/metal to dig out of the ground do I eventually run out? There have been hints to this but no direct explanation of the mechanics. As a dynamic of this in the game, won't this cripple a multi-player economy if a resource is unavailable? I'd hate to build an industrial town only to lose out later when the resources run dry.
  4. Can we name the overall "regional map" that has each of the sites? So instead of "Sunny Valley" or whatever the default name would be, can the owner name it Reddittropolis?
  5. Is there any sort of interaction available for players at a regional level outside of chat? Is there any bonus or special note to having all 16 players on at the same time for a region?
A said:
  1. there is UI in game for sending out invites to friends on your friends list. It will go to their email.
  2. at present, players are allow to choose any city they want once they are invited.
  3. yes, resources are limited and you can run out. You can continue to import that resource from the global market or re-specialize your city. Also, rain and meteors are known to add resources back into the ground :)
  4. yes, you can create a custom region name when creating the region
  5. players are notified of what other players are doing via several methods, region wall (chat), the Ticker, Boundary ui and regional alerts. In region view you can also move around the region can see from a high level what other cities look like and their status. If you want to see more, you can load up a friend's city in 'spectator mode' and check out their city first hand. No bonus for having 16 people in a region (that i know of) other then just being awesome.

ich würd gern wissen wie weit man mit so einem "leichten" Bausystem wie beim Zombi Video kommt... in Sim City 4 war sowas unvorstellbar meiner Meinung nach. Und im neuen Teil siehts halt auch alles viel zu einfach aus. Hoffentlich wird so ein Bausystem wie im Video auf dauer nicht funktionieren...
In der Beta ging es wegen des Zeitlimits den meisten Leuten weder um langfristig Effektivität noch um Aussehen - es zählte nur Masse - für mittlerere Bebauungsdichte kann sowas wie in den Zombie Vid u.U. reichen - aber danach würde man auch hängen - auch erfüllt man sicher nicht mehr alle Bedürfnisse - hat später Verkehrsprobleme - etc. pp ...
Endlich mal wieder ordentlich was zu berichten: diesesmal über das Öl in SimCity :)
Meine Ölstadt: ein raffiniertes Geschäft
Autor: Designer Ross Treyz



1. TAG
Ich begrüße die Spieler in aller Welt! Meine Name ist Ross. Ich bin hier als Designer bei Maxis für die Balance des Spiels zuständig. Wenn ihr wollt, teile ich mit euch meine Erfahrungen als Bürgermeister. Dafür möchte ich eine Stadt auf dem Ölgeschäft aufbauen. Daher wähle ich zuerst einmal einen Standort, an dem es im Boden viel Öl gibt. Direkt, nachdem meine Stadt geladen ist, nehme ich mir etwas Zeit, um mir meine Ölvorkommen anzusehen. Zunächst einmal will ich sicherstellen, dass ich guten Zugang zu den Ölreserven habe. Erst danach möchte ich mir Gedanken darüber machen, wo meine Bürger leben sollen. Daher lege ich durch Wege gleich einmal grob fest, wo sich meine Ölpumpen befinden sollen. Später werde ich sie noch zu besseren Straßen ausbauen. Im Moment brauche ich nur etwas Günstiges, um den Aufbau meiner Stadt zu planen.




2. TAG
Hallo zusammen! Ich fühle mich schon wie ein kleiner Öltycoon. Das Geschäft läuft bereits. Zurzeit ist der Ölhandel noch ziemlich einfach strukturiert. Meine Ölquellen ziehen den Rohstoff auf dem Boden, und die LKWs liefern das Öl an die Handelsdepots. Im Depot wird es in einen weiteren LKW gepumpt, um auf dem Weltmarkt verkauft zu werden. Wie ihr seht, habe ich meine Ölquellen und Handelsdepots abseits der Wohn-, Gewerbe- und Industriegebiete aufgestellt. Ich will schließlich nicht, dass meine Öl-LKWs durch den Verkehr behindert werden.



3. TAG
Willkommen zurück! Meinem Ölunternehmen geht es ziemlich gut. Durch Hinzufügen einer Ölzentrale konnte ich es zu einem Imperium ausbauen. Ich habe damit angefangen, die Kapazität meiner Ölquellen zu maximieren, um so viel Öl wie möglich aus dem Boden zu pumpen. Indem ich mehr Öl fördere und verkaufe, kann ich meine Ölzentrale um weitere Module erweitern. Diese erlauben es mir, Raffinerien aufzustellen und den Export auszuweiten.



4. TAG
Durch meine Expansionsbemühungen habe ich es geschafft, die Ölzentrale auszubauen. Beim ersten Modul, das ich aufgestellt habe, handelt es sich um die Raffinerie-Abteilung. Sie erlaubt es mir, Ölraffinerien zu installieren, die das Rohöl zu Plastik oder Treibstoff weiterverarbeiten. Beide Rohstoffe erzielen auf dem Weltmarkt in der Regel höhere Preise als das unraffinierte Öl. Der nächste Schritt besteht jetzt also darin, den Fokus vom Rohöl aufs lukrativere Plastik- und Treibstoffgeschäft zu verschieben.
Ich stelle meine Ölraffinerien in der Nähe meiner Ölquellen auf, damit sie die LKWs problemlos beliefern können. Jetzt füge ich einige Plastik- und Treibstofflager zu meinen Handelsdepots hinzu. Dort können die Plastik- und Treibstofflieferungen gelagert werden, um anschließend auf dem Weltmarkt verkauft zu werden. Mit wachsenden Einnahmen erweitere ich meine Raffinerien um zusätzliche Module, um die Produktion anzukurbeln. Außerdem ist es auch wichtig, zu den Raffinerien Garagen hinzuzufügen. Ohne zusätzliche LKWs erreichen die Raffinerien sonst durch die beschleunigte Herstellung schneller die Grenzen ihrer Speicherkapazität.




5. TAG
Ein neuer Tag und ein neues Upgrade für meine Ölzentrale. Diesmal habe ich die Gewerbe-Abteilung hinzugefügt. Sie erlaubt es mir, anstelle der Handelsdepots den besser ausgestatteten Umschlagplatz zu nutzen. In Umschlagplätzen finden nicht nur viel mehr Waren Platz. Daneben können sie auch um Bahnhöfe oder Anlegeplätze erweitert werden. So bin ich nicht mehr so stark von den LKWs abhängig, die meine Lieferungen über die Autobahn auf den Weltmarkt bringen. Eine tolle Sache – jetzt kann ich gelassener reagieren, wenn es an der Auffahrt zur Autobahn wieder einmal einen Stau gibt und mir gleichzeitig das Geld ausgeht.
Das ganze Ölgeschäft mit dem Abbau, dem Raffinieren und dem Verkauf war ein voller Erfolg. Ich bin mir aber sicher, dass hier bei mir keiner gern leben würde, wenn dies eine echte Stadt wäre. Schaut euch nur einmal die ganze Bodenverschmutzung an, die ich verursacht habe. Oh Mann – und die ganzen kranken Sims. Vielleicht sollte ich darüber nachdenken, in die Gesundheitsversorgung meiner Sims zu investieren ... Ach, was soll's! Sie können sich schließlich um sich selbst kümmern, oder?[/spoil]

Dazu habe ich noch ein Bild des britischen Stadtsets (Digital Deluxe):


Hier nochmal der Link zum ersten Stadt-Spezialisierungs-Blog (aus Müll mach Gold):

Compiled SimCity Twitter Informations - wird laufend aktualisiert:
kurzer Auszug said:
  • Educate your population with schools and they'll put solar panels on their roofs. They will generate energy during the day.
  • You can build a self supporting university town.
  • School buses can travel to other cities and pick up high school students. (grade schools are only for your own residents!)
  • HS graduates transport themselves to available colleges/ universities in the region.

Flughafen Bild und Twitter Infos:


@oceanquigley Hey Ocean, question, are you really satisfied with the quality of a full airport as shown just now on simcity FB page? thanks
@CK_Tjoonz Oh, yeah - that's just the local municipal airport. It's fine for small planes.
@oceanquigley Don't you think it looks weird, 4 lanes next to each other.. the comments showed a dislike among ppl aswell =(
@CK_Tjoonz It's maybe not how I would lay it out, but it's up to the player.
@oceanquigley Ah, so I understand you can place em a bit more decent, thanks for the intell! Thnx for the answers, keep up the good work!!
@oceanquigley @ck_tjoonz wow, even airports can be customized with modules ??

Wir sehen hier also nur einen kleinen Flughafen mit der Anordnung an Landebahnen wie sie dieser Spieler dort bevorzugt hat :)


und nach 2 Jahren werden die Server abgeschaltet... ok, das Spiel ist für mich leider gestorben :/

Ist es eigentlich schon jemals vorgekommen das ein Spiel mit Online-Zwang aufgrund von Serverabschaltung nicht mehr spielbar war?
Fifa10/11 ;)

Sowas kann man aber nicht mit SimCity vergleichen. Das wird frühestens abgeschaltet wenn SimCity 7 kommt (und bei dem Releasespeed von SimCity Spielen ist das in frühestens 10 Jahren).


und nach 2 Jahren werden die Server abgeschaltet... ok, das Spiel ist für mich leider gestorben :/

Denke nicht das es so früh offline geht. Eher nach einem Jahr Umstellung auf Free2Play und ne zusätzliche goldene Nase mit den dann prall gefüllten Ingame Shops verdienen.
Unwahrscheinlich aber möglich: Wenn die Server sich nicht mehr lohnen, wird das Spiel durch einen Patch von der Serverbindung getrennt.
Ist das jetzt wirklich der neuste Gag der Kapitalisten und der Grund dafür das jedes neue Computerspiel in einer Welle nur noch mit befristeter Spielzeit aufgrund von Online-Zwang ausgeliefert wird? Nach dem Motto; habt bloß nicht zuviel Spaß mit dem Game oder spielt altbewärte Klassiker, wir drehen euch den Saft ab und kauft gefälligste die neuen Spiele, wir wollen Profit sehen.

Oder ist diese Aversion gegen Online-Zwang schlichtweg unzeitgemäß im Internetzeitalter und jegliche Kritik am Cloudcomputing und serverbasierten Spielen unbegründet?
ist doch schon seit jahren so das man jedes jahr ein neues game einer marke/serie rausbringt (CoD,FiFa etc.)

ich denke nicht das simcity nach ein paar jahren tod sein wird
was soll man schon groß falsch machen, das spiel soll funktionieren und gut ist

und welche EA spiele kann man denn nicht mehr spielen wegen onlinezwang, mir fält keines ein

Mindestens schon ein Titel der einen Online Pass benötigt, wurde nach nur 18 Monaten dicht gemacht:
SimCitys Road Tool (Blog)
When I started working on SimCity, Will Wright had an observation for me. "Roads" he said, "Roads...are hard."

And oh, man, were they ever. What's more, they're fundamental.

In previous SimCity's, the grid controlled spacing and orientation. In the new one, that job is handled by roads. You use roads to structure your city, to space and orient your buildings, to set up transportation networks and to give it shape.

Pedestrians walk on roads, cars, trucks and service vehicles drive on them. Power is carried by them, sewage and water travel under them. Buildings are snapped and oriented to them. Roads are the connective tissue for your city.

First, some technical details.

Under the hood, SimCity's roads are a kind of curve called a Hermite Spline. The spline is how the road is represented in the underlying simulation. All the zoning, traffic lanes, road geometry, terrain modification and the rest is built on top of the spline.


The spline is a full 3D object, so you can have layers of roads on top of each other.
