It is time to get away from space and look at that small planet in space called 'Earth'. Apparently, Paradox decided to reveal all their treats this week. It is finally time to get a look and next upcoming Cities: Skylines expansion, what this time focuses on something different: "Mass transit". To be more exact:
Commuters can now get around on the water, up high mountain peaks, and even through the sky thanks to the addition of ferries, monorails, cable cars, and blimps to the game. Along with new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs where lines can exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road types, urban planners now have more options than ever to add unique style and personality to their growing cities.
To be honest, in past games, transport has been a small issue, as if you build a road a bit wrong, you can see miles of red traffic and issues. That means the trashman can't get people trash away, which means sickness will spread and then hospitals have hard a time getting too sick and all that will piss people off and soon you discover that you are in ghost-city.
Usually what makes the load a lot smaller and reduce the traffics is public transport. While the options weren't really great, there still were many options. However, the paradox will introduce many new transport options to the game. By the way, as it is Paradox cool tradition: all of them aren't paid features, some new stuff or improvements will come with a free update as well!
Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s income! Let your citizens get across town in ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails!
Orderly Hub, Bub: New mass transit hubs can bring all of your services together, letting citizens change rail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train- metro station.
Become a Roads Scholar: Explore a set of new challenge scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals add variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges. Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city!
