planner or random?
#1


do you like to lay out your town before you "un-pause" or do you just start plopping buildings willy-nilly, and let your town grow "organically"?




i'm pretty fussy about distances and proportions and balance, and getting good happiness radii, but i hate how long it takes folks to lay down a dirt road before they do anything else, so i've grown into a habit: i lay out most my roads on pause, for strategic placement of service buildings, etc.




then before i hit play, i delete most planned roads except intersections. that way i know what i want to grow, but waste a LOT less time getting started.




i use the delete road tool to visualize an overview of my future roads, to see if they line up the way i wanted.
