Perhaps you have gotten bored of playing Cities in Motion as it is: Maybe you want more vehicles, more varied maps, or additional tools that can enhance your experience. This guide will explain where to get mods, and how to install them. You will have the
Very good transport manager game. It has a very detailed simulation of passengers, who hop from one means of transportation to another to get to their destination: you can actually see them walk to leave the tram and take the metro, and so on. In that respect I like it better than classics like Transport Tycoon, since that one never bothered to properly model passengers traveling around (OpenTTD attempted it but IMO failed so far).
I can be tough to manage the hordes of angry passengers waiting at your stops, but that problem is handily solved by raising prices for the corresponding transport type really high (thus attracting less users) and using the largest capacity vehicles you can. Don't use too many vehicles on a line or you'll cause traffic jams. Reading community guide on Steam or reading the official Cities in Motion FAQ is recommended if you want to understand the game mechanics in-depth.
I don't find many faults to this game but there are a few: - Given a crowd of angry passengers at a stop, it's hard to figure out where they want to go. You have to check them one by one. Also some statistics that would be useful are not shown, but you can add a few more by the installation of the Line Statistics Plus mod (see this group for a mod archive: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/cimx ). - Missions are silly with writing that feels childish. - Game quits out of a mission as soon as you complete the last main objective. I would've prefered to keep playing around with my network until I decide I want to end the mission. - Placing tram rails can be fiddly, sometimes it looks as if the line should be able to pass between two buildings or across a curved road, and it doesn't.
Overall though, very enjoyable. I do recommend playing on Easy if you're just starting out.
I just bought this game and went to play it. It didn't load, so after a few seconds I double clicked again on the desktop icon and it says I'm already playing, but nothing is open. Even pushing play from the Steam Library says the same thing. I'm confus...
How the hell do you overcome all your vehicles getting frozen in traffic?
Yeah, I can't make any progress in this game. Regardless of what lines I build, I end up in a death spiral solely because my vehicles spend 90% of their time stuck in ♥♥♥♥ing traffic. And this has been an issue since the game first came out. Silly me thin...
