Yeah cities tend to have a lot of pollution so it seemed like a suitable name

looks like it would be super painful to have to get anywhere driving, since you run into an intersection every 20 seconds lmao

yeah well low density suburbia should have better driving, since it's low density. manhattan can be excused because the number of -- to use a very loose term which should not be misinterpreted to mean atoms -- "things" you drive by a second is still high.

if you make like, parallel zigzagging lines in one direction have the right of way it shouldn't be too bad

yeah the paper the article darvince linked cites uses this very simplified model of traffic which definitely doesn't substantiate the article's claims nor carries over to the real world

this is the model they use -- it's pretty neat and i've programmed/played around with it before

note: left = north, right = south

alright so i finally bought the game and my first city is a huge mess:

1. half my city is in danger of flooding and i had to raise the terrain into an earthen dam because i was producing so much sewage

2. all my powerplants are safeguarded from said flooding by me building a 10 meter tall canal wall around them

3. it took me a really long time to realize the north half of my city was completely disconnected from the south half of the city. then it took me a bit longer to figure out how to build elevated crossings. of course since there's only 4 lanes connecting two halves of the city, it immediately became super congested

4. built bus stations, lost a lot of money. built taxi stands, lost even more money. then i built a metro system with 3 stops which goes between the north and south parts of the city. it's ridiculously popular and manages to break even.

5. giving my health department a higher budget meant my cemetarys could handle 10 deaths at a time instead of just 3. that helped a lot

6. the north half of my city is dense and high-tech. the south half -- the original half, is pretty shitty if i do say so myself. actually i'm pretty sure half of the businesses in south-city shut down after i built office buildings and educated everyone

7. there is literally like 8 elementary schools right next to each other in north city

8. somehow managed to dry up two entire rivers while trying to pump enough water into my city

exhibit A: a single street in my city is responsible for half the light pollution
exhibit B: how a more normal commercial street looks -- certainly not as bright as A

in order to be sustainable, i am emptying all my landfills and cemetaries into incinerators and crematoriums

current garbage quantity: 500 million
current garbage production: 1M/wk
current incinerator capacity: 1.5M/wk

current dead people: 70k
current dead people rate: 400/wk
current creamatorium processing rate: 1800/wk

so in theory this means that all my dead people problems will be taken care of like in 1 year, whereas garbage will take 20 years to empty itself. i'm going to run the game while i go to work so i don't have to sit through that shit

actually probably less than 20 years since my city population will probably take a dive due to the fact that i am clogging up all my roads with garbage trucks and emptying all my landfills
