Managing that flow So you have built this wonderful large city but you wonder why your traffic is a bit shit in places. 72% traffic flow is not bad but not flash either given it sits in the ‘condition yellow’ segment.

Waiting for Mass Transit DLC With the new Mass Transit expansion coming out next month for Cities Skylines I am going to hold off working on both San Solarian City and Layton City until the new pack is out and the mods I use are updated (or deleted). As the new DLC allows for centralised transit hubs and better route finding mechanics (allowing me to … Continue reading #CitiesSkylines on Hold until May 19
