I have that. I made a city that is huge, has a high tech industrial area, skyscraper apartments, huge malls, small skyscrapers for office development, etc. As you can see I have played this game for a long time. At first its really hard to figure out. But after a while you can become a genius. The only major thing I haven't acquired yet is the space station. About everything else I've been able to build. If you need any advice you can just ask. I usually do something simple at first then accumulate money. Then I make a huge risky development, and if that succeeds then I turn out with a full map and then upgrade from there. Don't try to start out with high density housing until almost all of the map is filled in. If you do they will most likely go unoccupied within a few years since the land value is too low.

The only problem I really have with development is keeping down pollution. But what I usually do (only possible after connecting about three successful dirty industry cities) is raise taxes on dirty industry to an unacceptable rate and lower taxes on both manufacturing and high tech (with high tech the lowest) and then build a high density plot of industry land and wait for it to fill out. Be sure to connect it with water! And a good industry will develop. After the demand for high tech has increased, delete some of the manufacturing buildings and wait a few years. You can now place houses and commerce next to it without them getting to unhappy :D.

I've also played SimCity alot! :D
Now it doesn't work on my normal computer anymore, but I can play it on my laptop... Which now is my "SimCity 4-computer". :P
I only play that on it... I love it. And yes, I also use your industry strategy,hbmp88. :) I both have the Deluxe Edition and Rush Hour. I like terraforming my own regions... In the start at least. :P But connecting cities and giving them my own name is also funny.

When it worked on my desktop I built a single city (not a region) that had more than 1 million inhabitants. That's my record.

So how did it turn out? I can get huge map filling cities that way, and virtually no pollution.

I often get problems with the traffic pollution. Traffic is my weak point. Usually I make rails, then bus stops and metro, but it doesn't help much. In the end I need to upgrade the boulevards to highways, and sometimes completely change my road structure, but I got a new tactic some time ago when I looked at the real maps of my own city:

If you build like this:

=============== Big road (boulevard/highway)
   |      |      |      |      |
 ..|..  ..|..  ..|..  ..|..  ..|.. (dots = small roads)
   |      |      |      |      |   (lines = normal roads)
 ..|..  ..|..  ..|..  ..|..  ..|..

Then the main stream of traffic doesn't use the small roads to get through the city, but instead the highways and boulevards. :)
It's very effective, but hard to change if you build tall buildings so the small roads get too much traffic.

So you use freeways, underground subways, and airports for traffic between cities. Check to see where the traffic comes from and where it goes. If it comes from another city make an airport in a lot of cities or connect all of them with freeways. If that is too much money then connect them all with subways or E-trains

You know that boulevards can connect directly into freeways right?

Of course. :P
I love making a city where the boulevards change into highways and they turn around the buildings. It looks so beautiful. And then with ramps all over the place, roads under it, and then make them change to ground level so the roads can go over them. :)

Example: Money: 154,442 then search for 154442. and Build somthing you want. then your money is 75,243
search for 75243. click then enter any number. like 1 billion ;D

Cheat engine can be downloaded here: http://www.cheatengine.org
