Layout Templates

★★★ Newbie

Are there any sources out there for layout templates? 

 

I am only level 13 but I am having trouble getting efficient coverage for fire, police, and parks. Right now I am sitting at 100% happiness so I am good, but I bought a medium size police station when in retrospect I could have gotten away with the small one. I know I don't have the most efficient layout.

That 2million layout was more or less how I was thinking the road layout would ultimately end up being given the current way everything has to touch a road. My current layout is 90 degree rotation of that layout but with 4 cross streets forming 4x14 blocks. So I guess ultimately I will have to take those out so I might as well do that sooner than later. I'll have to check when would be best for me to do that. Standard smile

I've someone on my FB that has 2.51 millions population, using a similar layout to this one from SC Buildit site.

It's efficient but ugly. The city looks fake. I took 4 screenshots of the person's 4 pairs of Universities. They all look a screenshot taken from the same spot.

If you are looking for an efficent but fake/ugly city, go ahead :P

My city for instance, has not a fixed and simetric street layout. I did group some residences to make mini condos that usually is not so common in real life, but I have vertical and horizontal streets.

Additionally, I have PLENTY of room for parks in my city. They give a nice look to the city and quite a boost to population. I've currently 650k (counting the destroyed buildings). I can boost this to 700k or more after all my upgrades from this area are done and with more parks. And that is half the map. I don't intend to reach 2 million. My goal is 1.5 million.

Check some screenshots from dusk :P

Good luck on trying to achieve 2.5 millions. It'll take some time.

 

My goal is 1.5 million, which is much more realistic and doable. I also use a mix of horizontal and veritical streets, so my city doesn't look fake.
