Some Cities Skylines. I primarily focus on traffic and stuff like that and usually scrap cities before I can get anything built up well.. This is probably my biggest city and definitely most natural looking one. Modded obviously.






This was fun to make.

Looks great, I played some Cities Skylines back in 2015 when it was released. Maybe I'll start playing again.

Ha, sorry for being less than descriptive, but yes that's what I meant, your latest screenshots. I was actually thinking about buying that game, but I thought I saw some less than favorable reviews on steam. I'll have to give it a shot.

The community is huge. It takes quite a while to master all the controls, took me around 7 hours to learn the game properly. It's time consuming but it's awesome. There are many ways you can play the game, trader between space station, pirate, bounty hunter, exploration (my favorite, you've noticed), powerplay (there are factions in the habitable part of the galaxy 'the bubble'). Everything is scientifically close to what we know as of today, and you have the galaxy in 1:1 scale to explore. There is also a lore that keeps on getting better, lately we had encounters with alien spaceships. I'd suggest you watch youtuve tutorials to get used to it.

Most of the time, people neg review it because of how hard it is to master the whole game, but after, it's a spaceship simulator, not an arcade game :)

Forget about life once you have it (just kidding of course ). I bought a HOTAS last month, it's even more fun now :D

@Intel_man I haven't done much with it but in the little testing I did I was usually holding 30ish FPS unless I zoomed in too far. Zoom out enough and sits at 60 FPS comfortably. Night and day difference in performance but it's still a city simulator with 100K people so shit gets bogged down regardless. I'd say on average though my performance has doubled.

I'll do some more extensive testing with Ryzen and Skylines once I'm done with this semester.

I'm definitely interested with how more modern hardware deals with that game!

I did notice that Cities Skylines eats through ram and is maxed out. I was tempted to swap my ram for 24gb's worth but then realized that's like $240 worth of ram on old hardware I'm ditching in a few years. So I refrained myself. lol
