    A lack of a random region generator is the biggest flaw, I think. I've stoped playing sc4 aside from the multiplayer game we have going here because making a custom region is just too much work, and the ones that come with the game are all flat.

    I don't want to end up, with that this "prince" has already gotten my bank account, when I've read the mail

    There's no way to get a random map, but it's possible to make a map, by playing around with bitmap files... on how to do so, check out the SimCity 4 MP thread (In one of the first pages, there's a link)

    Or you could try to do a search, to see if you can find other regions, made from other players...

    Sorry if this has been asked previously, 5 pages is too much to read through ..

    Am I the only person who wants a random region map ?? is there any way I can get one, other than all sea or all plain ???? I really can't be bothered with creating my landscape each time.

    again, sorry if this has come up before. just point me to the thread if it has.

Maybe you should try making some real $$$ off of that ability of yours?

    And I have several times seen split-seconds of the future, but never anything useable, and I always first remember 5 seconds before it happens... Would be nice if I once learn to control this "power", so I can predict the lottery numbers

    Just went through that stuff... Doesn't really seem particularly helpful...

    Though it didn't help me much... but at least my public transportation is being used now (Was never used before I read the tips'n'tricks section... strange thing is: After I read it, I didn't change much in how I build the public transportation right )

    I wouldn't call this cheating... Because look at the wealth of the sims that come to a city with no water. It's waaay down there. In any other city, they wouldn't have enough money to find a home, and here, since there are no basic amenities, the land value is so cheap, everyone can afford it. I can see people choosing an apartment with no water as opposed to the street for home.

    Actually, I tried building a city like Yin said - without water, and that works quite fine - I've started a new one, and so far have a population of 14.000 yet they have no water. They don't seem to need it at first.

    I agree, sometimes guides kills the fun... but I just had to read on how to get those busstops to work... my sims would never use public transportation (And this was both in SC3000 and SC4)

    I agree actually. To me, it almost feels like cheating to read some strategy guide before I try the stuff myself. It's no fun that way. Then again, when you are stuck, and the game becomes frustrating and not fun, then you gotta do what you gotta do.
