SimCity Mega Guide: Tips, Tutorials, Secrets, and more

SimCity has went through a lot of launch issues with the game refusing to let people play. However, these problems are fixed now and if you have been playing the game, you’ll realise it’s actually fun but also a bit confusing.

For the first time SimCity player, the game can become really challenging because of having to manage so many things and actually trying to run everything without screwing things up.

How to build your first city

This is a very simple guide that shows you how to build your first city. This is a basic city but you can make it complicated by boosting your population because that brings you money.

The video shows you the basics about roads, zones, water, power, sewer.

How to Traffic

Traffic is one of the biggest things you have to learn to master in this game. When you have a city with a massive population, the routes are going to be difficult to navigate because there will be tons of people.

This is where you need to plan where to place your residential, commercial, and industrial zones. There’s a hack where you can make routes in a zig zag position but the city doesn’t really look good.

Planning everything on your own is amazing and if you want to build a great city, then check out this video.
