Cities: Skylines

Cities: Skylines is pretty much the best city builder ever made, for two reasons: it's very fun to play, and reading Chris Livingston write about it is among my greatest pleasures. If you haven't picked it up yet, you can do so now for $10 as part of the new Humble Strategy Simulator Bundle. 

Although, if you have picked it up, the bundle will still be of interest. The "pay what you want" tier includes Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville, SimplePlanes and Out of the Park Baseball 18. Pay above the average (which is currently $6.15) and you'll also get Mad Games Tycoon, Plague Inc and TS 2017 Train Simulator. But pay the $10 and you'll get all those in addition to Cities: Skylines.

Go forth and peruse. There's also currently an offer where every purchase nets you 10 percent off a Humble Monthly instalment, which have to date been very generous

We’ve hit the mid-point of the week and the see-saw of time is about to tip forward and hurtle us towards the weekend at an alarming rate. Perhaps more ominously, we will also be hurtling towards the litany of PC gaming Black Friday deals that are headed our way in a fortnight’s time.

Before then, however, the deals aren’t slowing down one bit and there’s another big batch of digital deals to check out right here, right now. Everything from this week’s release of Nioh to Cities Skylines and even the absolute gem that is Jagged Alliance 2 is represented across a variety of sites, so consider this a convenient mid-week digital deals roundup if you like. Let’s get to it, shall we?


Cities: Skylines - (Fraser Brown)


Cities: Skylines has always had an environmental bent – one of the first things you can build is a wind turbine – but with the Green Cities expansion, cleaning up polluted cities has become a major focus. There s a slew of new buildings and policies that make it a little bit easier to keep your citizens from living under an oppressive layer of smog.

How easy, though? I ve started up a new city to find out. My goal: a completely pollution-free utopia where everyone is happy and healthy. This is probably the nicest thing I ve done in Skylines; certainly it s nicer than the time I tried to flood my entire city in poo, or the time I turned off the heating to see how long it would take for everyone to freeze to death.


Cities: Skylines

The coughing citizens of your Cities: Skylines metropolis can breath again—the game's eco-friendly expansion is out now. Green Cities, which is £9.99/$12.99 on Steam and Humble Store, adds more that 350 assets to the game, from Geothermal Power Plants to Yoga Gardens and Bee Havens.

The DLC also adds new specialisations for your buildings, all of which help keep pollution at bay. You can design self-sufficient apartment blocks, for example, or plonk down shops that only sell organic and locally-produced goods.

To make sure you get your hands dirty (or clean in this case), developer Colossal Order has created three new scenarios in which you can test your green credentials, as well as four new policy options and a new monument, the 'Ultimate Recycling Plant'.

Players that don't want to pay to battle pollution get some free options courtesy of an update released at the same time as the DLC. The 1.9.0 patch adds electric cars, reworks noise pollution, introduces three new types of park (including a tropical garden) and new trees. There's the customary bug fixes, too.

You can read the full notes on the DLC and the free update in the patch notes

Cities: Skylines - Green Cities, all new content for Cities: Skylines is Now Available on Steam!

Cities: Skylines - Green Cities is a new expansion for the city-builder from Colossal Order, adding new ways for players to build earth-friendly towns.

Cities: Skylines - (Alice O'Connor)

Modern cities are okay but for those who’d rather dream a little utopian, Cities: Skylines today launched its Green Cities expansion. Like other Skylines expansions, Green Cities doesn’t massively expand game systems but does bring some eco-friendly new buildings to erect — blocks clad in vertical planting, solar updraft towers, organic food shops, that sort of thing — which have a few thematic new functions. They do look very nice. A free update has launched alongside the expansion too, with new content from electric cars to extra types of park.

Oh, and if you’re not Skylining yet, the game is on sale right now too. (more…)

Cities: Skylines - TheLetterZ

Good day to you all! Here are the patch notes for the 1.9 patch coming today along with the Green Cities Expansion! Hopefully loaded with a bunch of fixes and tweaks you and your cims will enjoy!

Please remember that a major patch like this will like render some mods incompatible, this is nothing unusual but can of course be annoying, our modders are usually incredibly fast in updating their mods compability however please do practice some patience as the patch launches. For the safest Cities experience we suggest turning off your mods until they have been updated to match the latest version.

Have a great day building Green Cities!
