You know from my previous update, that I am experimenting with multi-city commutes.

I now want to give a short overview to the problem in my region. In the following picture I highlighted the biggest residential area and the area with the most jobs available. As I left the grid on you can see that the sims from Zweifingern will have to cross two tiles to eventually reach the industrial area at the Philipp Stone Mine. That’s a mere 9 km. Easy as pie in real life but not for the sims that typically don’t like to cross more than one tile border.

The street connection seems not to be usable for commuting as it goes an odd way. Further more it is mainly a dirt road. Going via that street from Zweifingern to the mine would probably take more than one hour. No wonder that no one does.

What can be done? If you have any proposals please do NOT keep them for yourself. Be a city planner. Tell me what you think!

Watch out for more information on the problem and my search for a solution. We will see updates in rapid succession!
