It zones by density and lot size...

Is that regarding the farms? Didn't Simcity 4 have four industrial zones - 1 for farms and then one each for low/medium/high density?

You never had a specific option to zone farms. Low density industrial zones could potentially develop into farms depending on pollution, size, location and whatnot. But they could just as well develop into smaller factories.

I liked it when it was a simple sim and not a micro managing system. Just want Sim2000 with modern graphics.

Why would you need to add MP3's as background music ? just disable in game music and play music in the bacground.

i think they cancelled c&c generals 2 a few weeks ago, they will be released a free online c&c game instead of something.

Codec issues happened with XP more often, but it still can happen with third party codec packs installed I think. Haven't heard of it though, MS protected their default codecs better past that iirc.

The retail product was cancelled and it was renamed, but I believe it will still have Generals 2s content.

Also, it shouldn't. I do it 90% of the games I play. (Well, multiplayer games at least.)

Are there any new mechanics in the new game? Or is it the same thing but with a different skin?

The graphics do look awesome, but they keep making the game so complex it seems.

Complex? This new one actually simplifies alot of things. No longer do you have to care about laying water pipes and power lines. The water, power and sewage all now flow along the path of the roads, as they do in real life. So as long as your water towers and power plants are connected by road, they get water and power. It's a fairly simply solution.

If you want simple... Play SimCity Societies... Alot of people will complain if it's taken that low again.

Tried it and played it for a long time but it was too simplistic. Just click and wait game. I could do that while tasking out other things at the same time. So that does not fit for me either :(

the complexCity is part of the fun... being in complete control of the city and not have the game hold your hand.

no there is 4 industrial in SC4 at least, and they were not ranked by density, but wealth... low wealth would turn to farm land, they where IR, ID, IM, and IHT zoneing

IR- low weath near residential aka farm land

ID - medium wealth dirty aka manufacturing aka chemicals and coal

ID - Medium wealth clean aka product mfg (Cars, etc)

IHT - High wealth tech industry.. needs high education and wealth in the region
