Building and Optimising Interchanges in #CitiesSkylines​ (non Vanilla)

Short highlight on getting best bang for buck out of interchanges

I run through how to build and optimise an interchange over a motorway. The interchange used was the YumblTV interchange available on the Cities Skylines Steam Workshop.

Optimising the interchange

If you are wondering about transit and cycling infrastructure, this will get placed later on once the zones are operational.

That a Pak n Save?

Day 2 Recreating South Auckland (Mixed Reality) in #CitiesSkylines​ (all about the Infrastructure)

Settling the infrastructure down, going through what Road Hierarchies mean (full play through)

In Day 2 of recreating South Auckland as part of a Mixed Reality build in Cities skylines I go through the motions of laying down the core transport infrastructure. This is a full run through, I will have separate posts covering the highlights of Road Hierarchies, and Transport Optimisations.

So why Road Hierarchies?

Would you put residential on a six lane arterial road, or send trucks and buses down a tiny road?

Yeah.

Next up: Day 3 – preparing the zones and establishing the city

All falling into place

New Map, New City, Day 1: Building South Auckland in #CitiesSkylines #MixedReality

Using Mixed Reality to build South Auckland as it might have been

After giving my second ever only Winter map a go (Antarctica City) I went back over to my stock standard Temperate Maps reopening Vanilla Coast to have another crack it (the first had to stop as the Industries DLC had come out when the city was in its end phases).

With that I introduce South Auckland, a Mixed Reality build named after my IRL home sub-region here in Auckland, New Zealand. If you are wondering what Mixed Reality is the term means the blending of Virtual and Real World concepts for the purpose of education, entertainment or showcase. Given I stream Cities Skylines on Twitch the Mixed Reality version is more around education as I go through the real life motions of building a City in its various stages of its life on a virtual platform.

Day 1: Outlining the Methodology of founding a City

Day 1 looks at the methodology I use in laying the foundations of the City. Basically I am doing the equivalent of the real life Auckland (Spatial) Plan in working out how things will be shaped followed by laying down key transport routes the spatial form be influenced by.

Note: This is the full play through of this particular segment of Cities Skylines. From time to time I will publish Highlights as separate blog posts.

Next up: Day 2 and looking at Hierarchies
