You need to create an invisible parks set! ;) Or make a set of parks without the ground color?

The invisible set could even be as small as a ploppable boulder. Oooohhhh. How about a set of statues? Academy logo futurizes, gold gives high wealth, silver medium wealth. mind is racing with ideas...

+7-Eleven replaced an old convenience store at the corner of Mast Blvd and Carlton Hills in Santee. But #Google refuses to believe me. I wonder if this is enough proof for +Google Maps to believe me?

My proof includes the geolocation data on these photos taken with my +Android phone, and the street signs with a the #7-Eleven logo in the first photo.

Hooray! +Google Maps believed me, 7-Eleven is now on Google Maps. Now, how do I get +Waze to add the gas station so I can add gas prices (they have Diesel as well)? :)

Did you take a picture of the camera? Was it busted open?

Thanks for this. I saw this when it came out months ago, but at the time I thought it was limited to bus terminals so I never bothered. Downloading now. :)

I was thinking, eh, I've used a similar park trick (although I didn't know to count snap points mine was more trial and error) ... but I was blown away by the amount of details. Your intimate knowledge of how SimCity operates is impressive. Thank you.

I have been wanting to try Cities XL, I bought it before SimCity was out on Mac, and just didn't get into it very much. I know finding videos from people like you and Strictoaster have really helped me get inspired.

Does anyone know who the "+Skye Storme"of the Cities XL world is? :)

There really aren't any. Keralis did a good job but like most he just casually played it many months ago when the frustration with SimCity was at it's peak.. lol

You can restore sanity 5 points per flower picked. Eating the petals restores 1 point of health. Yes it's slow, but I grab them on the run to keep up sanity.

My 5 year old says, while playing minecraft mind you, "That guy is silly. I like him." :)

I enjoy listening to you. Your speech style is reminiscent of Tobias Funke, from Arrested Development.

I have heard that the train system breaks down when you have more than one station in your city. What if you replace the extra train stations with street cars instead. The street cars, which can use tracks independent of roads, just like trains, can feed passengers to the one train station closest to the edge of town.

BTW. you can have street car stops on the tracks that aren't on the street. Somehow the sims walk to those.

Oddly enough you can get money from this cash cow to Tamarin Island. You have to "launder" it through Osprey first. ;) Somehow (boat?) Osprey can send money to Tamarin, at least that has been my experience.

I think the expressways you built to the factories play a HUGE role in you only needing one of each service. There's no traffic issues, so you don't need multiple police stations to reach the whole city! Brilliant!

A nice new hotel on the ocean... Right on front if the light house. We had a quiet room with waffles, sausage, muffins, and pastries for breakfast.
