Screenshots For New Wii SimCity Released

ScuttleMonkey posted about 6 years ago | from the hand-that-rocks-the-tectonic-plates dept.

Kotaku has a host of screenshot images from the new upcoming Wii sim, SimCity Creator. Looks like the new SimCity allows you to not only build and manage a city, but utilize a whole new range of disaster tools as well. Can't wait to introduce my citizens to the new hand of God.

dunezone (899268) | about 6 years ago | (#24424681)

Its a mix between somewhat simple and somewhat complex. I loved the original, loved Simcity 2000, and enjoyed Simcity 3000, but Simcity 4 included so much depth and micromanagement that it turned away a lot of us.

Eh, it could be worse (3, Insightful)

Moraelin (679338) | about 6 years ago | (#24425743)

Actually, if you want the real black sheep of that series, try Sim City Societies, a.k.a., Sim City V. It was kinda the opposite: over-simplified to the point of being absurd and meaningless.

It wasn't just a numbers game, it was a _totals_ game. You needed X points creativity to place one artsy-town house. That's ok, you just need to place Y graffiti walls for those, but it doesn't actually matter where. It can be in a bunker under the ocean floor, for all those people care. Ditto for just about anything else. You need X1 police-state points for a secret police HQ, if you go for oppressive totalitarian town. You need X2 wealth points to build a bank.

The whole thing is just a game of producers and consumers, and the only condition is that you must produce more than you consume. But even there the relationships are actually weird. A secret police HQ for example, actually consumes police state points, so logically it makes your city less oppressive. A bank actually consumes wealth points, so logically it would make your town poorer. Etc.

Worse yet, because the game actually encourages you to stick with one theme, you'll likely need to manage _one_ number. Yay.

Ok, there is one more number: workers vs work-places. Even that's screwed up. Shops don't actually have employees. Buildings are divided hard into:

- houses: they provide workers

- service buildings, like shops: they neither add nor use workers, but they satisfy some need

- industry: they provide employment, but otherwise have no influence on morale

The division is weird at times. E.g., banks are industry: they provide employment, but otherwise are of no use to your citizens. It gets worse: there are even kinds of _shops_ which are categorized as industry, so they don't actually sell anything. And viceversa.

Things like education quotient, happiness factors, pollution, etc, are gone too. E.g., placing a school doesn't really do anything for your city's education, it just makes kids happy (I'm guessing the designer doesn't have kids of school age;), provides some kinds of points, and subtracts other kinds of points. So basically it's again at most needed for the totals to build something else. Ditto for, say, slum or police state themes. They don't actually make the citizens unhappier or anything, they just provide or consume some points.

In a nutshell, it's no longer a city simulator, it's a fancy drawing program with some elementary maths attached. It lets you paint a city in a certain theme, but not much more, and not in a much more interesting way than doing it in Gimp. (In fact, maybe less. Wrestling Gimp's interface can be a challenge and game by itself;)

So to cut this rant short(er) and get to the actual point: well, I see your point about too _much_ depth and micro-management. But I hope the next one will have at least _some_ depth and complexity. Something as shallow as a puddle on the sidewalk, can be even less fun to play.

Re:Eh, it could be worse (1)

jemtallon (1125407) | about 6 years ago | (#24433995)

A bank actually consumes wealth points, so logically it would make your town poorer.

I thought most banks offer loans to people for money they will have a hard time repaying at a high enough interest rate that the likelihood of them ever paying off the debt become negligible. Isn't that consuming wealth and making the town poorer?

mrchaotica (681592) | about 6 years ago | (#24426635)

And on the other side of the coin, there are those of us for whom even SimCity 4 wasn't complex enough. Or, at least, realistic enough.

I, for example, would like to see a SimCity that wasn't based on a rectangular grid, so that you could have proper curves in the roads. I'd also like to see the ability to make walking and/or cycling paths, so that you could potentially create a city with no cars whatsoever. Bus stops and subway stations that didn't take up a whole grid square would be nice, as would being able to build roads one lane at a time (including turn lanes). Finally, I'd like to see mixed-use zoning.

Of course, they could keep the complexity down by removing other stuff. I wouldn't mind them cutting the touchy-feely "my sims" junk, the driving missions (if somebody wants that, they ought to just make a new Streets of SimCity and do it properly instead), etc.

Rocketship Underpant (804162) | about 6 years ago | (#24429307)

You've already been modded as high as possible, so I might as well put in my two cents instead. :)

I agree wholeheartedly. Building a city is absolutely fascinating, and SimCity gives a taste while making more interesting layouts and experiments impossible. I'd love to have a city simulator that let me *at least* emulate a real-world city with angled and curved roads, pedestrian paths and walkways, customizable roads (with respect to number of lanes and lane use), mixed-use zoning (or even un-zoned development), better overpasses, etc.

I can imagine such a game being similar, complexity-wise, to SimCity 4 at first sight, but including tools like a Road Designer, an Intersection Designer, a Zone Designer, and so on that let you produce custom elements for the game. I'd pay a good deal of money for something like this.

Here's what I don't care about. I don't care about the tedium of laying pipes and power lines everywhere. I don't care to have special sims I follow around the city. I don't even care about natural disasters, though I suppose some people enjoy disaster scenarios. I just want a really sophisticated sandbox to play in. :)

Re:I hope (2, Interesting)

KDR_11k (778916) | about 6 years ago | (#24429775)

What about build times? In real life it can be pretty problematic to expand a high traffic road for more capacity because the construction site will leave the road at lower capacity for months or years. Stuff wearing out and choosing whether and when to put up a construction site to repair it, managing the results of eminent domain use when you realize the low density residential area in the center of your town would be a better spot for expanding your commercial zones, old towns and marks of interest that need to be preserved, etc would add depth too but I don't know if you really want that.

Re:I hope (1)

gad_zuki! (70830) | about 6 years ago | (#24433307)

Or union strikes, shortage of materials, global warming, mass murder, plagues, being elected or losing office, recession, bribes, etc. The Sim City games are just too nice. Its a little city fantasy without any of the negative, but realistic, aspects except a natural disaster.

Re:I hope (1)

KDR_11k (778916) | about 6 years ago | (#24446083)

Well, stuff like plagues and mass murder are pretty much rare desasters, global warming isn't acting on the timeframes present in SimCity (probably a policy point but since air pollution is already handled by the game that's probably enough). Economic stuff would make sense in the game though, especially this whole business about attracting large factories and whatnot into the city with tax breaks which seems to be a common event in real life.

Well you can have roads at any angle in this Wii Sim City game, looking at the screenshots:

Looks like the buildings arrange themselves at 45 degree angles in the spaces between the roads though.

Wii Games (3, Insightful)

AndrewStephens (815287) | about 6 years ago | (#24424753)

I wish there were more games for the Wii like this - the WiiMote seems tailor made for turn based strategy and board games.

I can't understand why x-box live gets all the board games when the x-box controller is so ill-suited for the task.

Re:Wii Games (1)

Red Flayer (890720) | about 6 years ago | (#24425447)

I wish there were more games for the Wii like this - the WiiMote seems tailor made for turn based strategy and board games.

I'm trying to grok what you've written, but it just won't compile. SimCity is a real-time strategy game, not turn-based. And how is the Wiimote tailor-made for TBS or board games? Seems to me it's tailor-made for action games, but maybe that's just me and all the games that have already come out for it.

Seriously, I'm really curious, what advantages do you feel the Wiimote has over a traditional controller for TBS or board games?

Re:Wii Games (3, Insightful)

pavon (30274) | about 6 years ago | (#24425553)

It is well suited for point-and-click games (which most board games are) because it has a pointer, rather than having to navigate with an annoying d-pad or joystick.

Re:Wii Games (1)

AndrewStephens (815287) | about 6 years ago | (#24427311)

Bingo, that is exactly what I meant. I can't even look at strategy games on the other consoles now, selecting units or indicating positions with a joystick is just painful.

Re:Wii Games (1)

mrchaotica (681592) | about 6 years ago | (#24426701)

SimCity is a real-time strategy game, not turn-based.

It can be turn-based, if you pause it while you do stuff and then let it run while you sit back and watch the effects. I believe a lot of people, including myself, play this way.

Re:Wii Games (1)

gfxguy (98788) | about 6 years ago | (#24436945)

Only if it starts getting too hectic... I don't believe it's in any way "cheating," either, because you could easily pass a zoning bill that marks dozens of areas as a certain type in a single 1 hour town meeting... but in Sim time it could takes weeks or months, depending on how fast the game is running.

I'm getting encouraged to install SimCity 3000 (the latest I have) and play, if it just didn't suck away so much time...

As a funny anecdote, when I was in college I had the original. My roommate asked if he could try it out, but it was already like 10:00pm. So I told him I better not, because he'll be up all night playing. He whined about it, said he just wanted to see what it looked like because he read a story about it, so I said OK and gave him the game. The next morning he was all pissed off at me because he didn't get any sleep.

Re:Wii Games (0)

Because the Wiimote is analogous to a mouse in the way that it works. i.e. a relative pointing device. Anything that a mouse could do, this can do.

But yeah, SimCity is RTS ...

More to the point, why is it that third parties in general have proven to be so unwilling to support the market leader? The Wii has already won, and their lead is only going to widen in both absolute and relative terms. Despite that, many companies either act like the Wii doesn't exist, or try to bury it with shovelware. This is, without a doubt, the strangest generation I have ever seen.

KDR_11k (778916) | about 6 years ago | (#24429801)

I have a feeling it's because they know the Wii changed the rules of what games qare successful but they don't know into what, they're waiting for someone else to make more successful games they can clone (after cloning the "casual" games failed due to copying incorrectly).

Re:Wii Games (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 years ago | (#24432199)

They assume that since the Wii has managed to bring in a large casual audience that it is lacking in traditional gamers. They target casual gamers who cannot tell the difference between a quality game and a piece of shit with a license. Sadly, it works. Part of the problem is also that Nintendo has also neglected the hard core gamer demographic in many ways.

Check out the "Network Addon Mod" http://www.simtropolis.com/modding/index.cfm?p=details&id=380 [simtropolis.com] It extends the transportation as much as possible through creative tiles, and even tweaks some of the parameters in the route finding algorithms. HIGHLY recommended. Granted, some of the new tiles are annoying to use (especially the piece wise ones you can't drag and must place tile by tile). But you can actually now place El trains over roads, and other such odd omissions from the original sim city.

Pulzar (81031) | about 6 years ago | (#24426885)

The Rush Hour expansion pack added a bunch of good stuff, but didn't go far enough in my opinion... Dealing with traffic in SimCity has always been the most interesting part of the game to me, it's the only part where you have to really plan things out. Some road options were very limited, and some public transportation elements hardly ever got used even when they seem like they should've been...

Yeah, I'd love SimRoad! It's too bad that all these sim games are going towards simplicity instead of more depth... first the Railroads, then Societies, then the new Civ... they are trying to appeal to the casual gamer, but the casual gamer has long left the PC gaming.

It's funny, we now have the computer power to do much more in-depth simulations, but we're not using it! :( I guess we still have GalCiv 2 to play, at least.

The new CIV is just a mod like port of civ4 not a new ver as well as not being a pc game. Railroads tycoon 3 had a lot in it and automated track laying is a plus some times in games like that.

Clandestine_Blaze (1019274) | about 6 years ago | (#24429003)

After EA made the decision to let Tilted Mill create SimCity Societies, many fans figured the series would just die. EA wanted the SimCity series to go towards a different direction, with less micromanagement and more, as they call it, "social engineering simulation."

To be fair to Tilted Mill, their developers did pay a lot of attention to the forums and try to accommodate fans, but they were headed in the opposite direction under the guidance of EA.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Cities XL [citiesxl.com] - which does seem promising and a lot like the older SimCity games before EA made the switch.

And I'm not bashing SimCity Societies - it's just not my cup of tea.

Re:Where is simcity 5 for the pc? I want to have r (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 years ago | (#24487995)

Yeah.

Take the elevated water, flooding disaster, and hydro power from SC3K. (Or was that SC2K?) Then the good stuff from SC4 Rush Hour - but also include the fixes (sims less retarded about commuting) and more road types, pedways, and interchanges that come with the SimTropolis Network Addon Mod and Rural Highway Mod. Add a STFU toggle for some types of useless alerts, like "Streets becoming scarce - wah wah!" (Should I care?) Chuck out the non-cannon BS like Societies into the toilet (SimCity != The Sims, don't confuse their audiences). May also chuck the U Drive It and My Sim stuff too to focus more on city building. Add some more profit ordinances other than gambling (parking meters, vehicle registration, etc.) Alter how lots develop or where buildings can be placed (instead of such and such tiles, use total lot area and perhaps a minimum width a structure can fit in) so that way you can build on or have things develop around curvy roads without any problems. Perhaps even use beziers for placing transportation routing, if possible. Make it possible for region play to tie into some online system. Then have some other new rewards for the game like earmarked funds coming from SimNation that can only be used for developing one particular thing (like roads or schools). Offer some other interesting play modes (like having major transportation ways in a region pre-existing and being fixed, or natural disasters on a regular basis, or play to score some achievement: population, $, etc.)

Oh also make possible to run the game no-CD once registered, and no DRM that eats resources, spies, or breaks functionality of the computer or other software.

Then I'll be interested in a new SimCity game... (But for now, SC4/RH + SimTropolis NAM so it actually works right is the way to go.)

The SimCopter demo only let you play for 20 minutes, and didn't let you load your own cities, but I discovered that the cities it did load were hard-coded, so you could just replace one with one of your own sc2k saves and fly around it. I spent ten minutes trying to fly to the top of an arcology (didn't make it - there's probably a flight ceiling lower than the archology top), but the game was great fun.

I'm not saying it's a bad game or anything, but when the most exciting thing about a new SimCity game is the disasters you can inflict upon your city, it sort of implies that they've made the wrong kind of game.
The objective of the game is to build and manage your city, not destroy it (although that's always fun), makes me think it's about time SimCity got a proper remake to bring it into the 21st century and not just updated graphics.

Re:Says it all... (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 years ago | (#24429043)

But in grade school, it was everyone favorite part of the game to destroy it, or at least call down the alien. No one that age actually tried to build a city, we just loaded one of the saved games. I remember sim earth and all anybody did in that that i can remember was drop several nukes leading to nuclear winter. That's how we thought as kids.

It's sad that SimCity for the Wii looks much better and more complex than SimCity Societies (the latest PC game in the SimCity series, notable for 1. Being a complete abortion of a game and 2. NOT being developed by Maxis).

I've always thought that the Wiimote would be natural for a SimCity game. I do wonder how it will handle really large cities, though. Lots of buildings to render and things like traffic routing to calculate.

Re:This is sad (1)

Joe The Dragon (967727) | about 6 years ago | (#24427305)

It looks more like a port of simcity 3000 / 4. As for traffic routing the road grid look bad may it will use the simcity 2000 / 3000 system.

All Flat? (2, Interesting)

Fez (468752) | about 6 years ago | (#24425223)

It's hard to tell from the screen shots, but it looks rather flat to me. I wonder if they left out terrain/grading entirely?

It sure would make things simpler, but it also detracts from the realism a bit. I wouldn't mind, though, one of the first things I usually did when starting a city from scratch on my own was to flatten the land out. That is, unless I was going for a certain overall effect.

Re:All Flat? (1)

Hektor_Troy (262592) | about 6 years ago | (#24427907)

Personally I found that with a bit of creativity and patience, I found that you place a large mountain in one corner and fill it with waterfalls and hydro dams to fulfill your power needs.

Aditionally, though I doubt it has an actual effect on anything, I liked having industry on one side of a small ridge, a small bit of light commercial zones on top of the ridge and then a nice mix of commercial and residential zones on the other side of the ridge. Again, I doubt it had an effect on the game, but it was kinda fun thinking that if you had heavy smog conditions it'd remain on the industry side of the city, and in great weather it would still keep out of the city.

I also liked having some hills for hydro power, but I never really got into segregating things like that.

Even if those things don't help in the game, as long as they don't have a detrimental effect on the outcome it is still fun to think that way.

One intesting thing about Sim City 2000 was that if you built an airport in a smallish valley it the airplanes will crash quite frequintly.

I remember having the planes crash if you let tall buildings grow near the airport. You had to surround the airport with low density housing.

Someone better be writing a custom Civilation designed just for the wii, or I may just start believing all those nintendo anti-fans... Seriously, why is this not here?!?

Simcity 4 Engine? (1)

This really looks like it's running on a special version of the SimCity 4 engine. Am I the only one who noticed this?

I'll probably end up getting this, I avoided Societies like the plague and if this is the true heir to the throne, I'll be quite pleased.
