Re: SimCity 5 Looking For People To Join My Region

Your city literally has no water? i.e. trying to place, say, a water tower shows no blue? If so, you'll have to buy it from another city in the region.

Anyone mind if I start an Arcology?

I always struggle to get enough workers through residential, build one in my last map and it provided over 60,000 workers
Fills ALL the low income worker spots so you can upgrade your whole town to mid/high

Mcrobrewer, the secret to endless water is to build a sewage treatment plant next to your water pumps. They flush fresh water back into the ground

Or as suggested, buy it from someone else - might not be self-sufficient but the game is designed to share things between cities, it's actually cheaper to buy power/water/sewage off other people than pay the hourly cost of the plants
My sewage plant costs me $1400/hr but you can buy it off someone for $1/Kgal/hr - about 1/10th the cost of running the plant itself. Similar stats for power and water..

Thanks for the tips... I cant buy anything now since I am not connected to anyone in my region (the other 3 cities in my subregion) are empty

Shall I start a city over there and join you, or are you guys still sticking to one city each so more people can join in?

Likely best to stick to one city for future players to have room to join.

I joined this area to finally play with some real people, the first 3 areas I played in might as well have been single player - no communication and they were rarely on

*sigh* I was trying to export metal to the archology. My traffic got so backed up my metal delivery trucks were past neighbouring cities. I started blocking off side streets to try and at least force the traffic down the main avenue so it would be stuck in the city rather than on the highway in the hopes that some delivery action might happen. Then I got a message saying my city wasn't processing properly. Now I'm waiting for the server to "roll back" my city. I hope I don't loose too much progress.

So I have a question what do you do if/when you run out of ground water?

I am getting close to running out.... It never seems to rain.

I have the same problem.

Obviously the maintenance they did earlier helped you heaps then :P
It booted me off at the time promising to sync my city next time I logged on

What does that even have to do with water ?

Sorry, that was meant to be a reply to the post above that referring to the city processing issue

The water solution was answered earlier - build sewage treatment next to your water pumps

Since Brian assumes because I have money I'm cheating, but couldn't be bothered clicking "Visit City" to see for himself, I've taken a screenshot
The secret cheat is out, manufacture TV's and export them for just under $200,000 per 1000 units and you can make money.
I haven't looked at the petroleum side, but it's the most expensive good I've found you can produce.
I never had any luck with tourist attractions - tourists just seem to mysteriously stop coming after a few months and the casinos/attractions that made pots of money to start with all start costing me money, and I could never get enough population/freight/shoppers to make more money from zones than I spend trying to keep them happy/not on fire/alive

Brian pst me about your money thing and I said I would check out your town. From looking at your city I immediately knew how you made your money.

You are cleaning up in the electronics trade, and quite handily I might add.

Oh and Granite the archology is done. I sent the metals and alloys it needed to finish the project so no worries.

Here it is, ain't she a beauty. Oh, and yeah it needs power. :P

Woohoo, now to upgrade all the places to medium/high wealth as the Arcology provides all the low income workers you could want

Also don't worry about the power/water thing, as I mentioned to granite what I discovered last time I built one - between us we are exporting enough power/water, it just takes ages for the regional map to update
The first time I spent 15minutes trying to find out what I had to turn on to send it power and water, until it automagically happened after a period of time
