This blog details my dealings with the game of SimCity 4. I create regions using Synoecism, the process of villages joining to become a town. Other planning and development styles will also be shown.
Very nice. I like how you catagorized things.I'm also considering moving my custom content list to it's own page cause it's already a quite extensive list, but I'll save it for later.About the no fires / riots thing. Did you suffer from fires in city tiles with no fire station at all? I was always under the impression that fires would start in cities with partly cover of firestations, not in the ones with no fire stations at all, but I'm not sure of it.I've considered the mod, but in general I've never had fires do a lot of damage, might do without it and use it as another roleplaying aspect.
Yes, soon after starting my city on medium level I got a fire on one of my houses, which irritated me. I suppose I could remove it again now.
Well, don't let me talk you into or out of using certain mods ;)I start my cities on easy level, I don't know if that matters for random events such as fires, could very well be.. I can see why a fire would irritate you at these early beginnings, with everything still being small it can have quite a lot of impact on the storyline you might have had in mind. Once things have grown considerably I guess a fire or two would make a nice update instead heh.
