SimCity 4 > Basics


After you launch SimCity 4, and get past the long title graphics, you are ready to begin.

Regions, Cities And Tiles
The blank slate of SimCity 4 and how it's set up.
First, shape; then, build; finally, report.
Mapping out where your sims live, shop and work.
Measures Of A City
The two qualities that make or break a city.
Measures Of A Sim
The two qualities of the sims which underlie your city.
How fast to run your simulation.
A panel that tells you what you're doing right or wrong.
