Cities: Skylines Review

When the sun sets in Cities: Skylines-which it does now-the city starts to shine. Following Dark, the very first paid expansion for Colossal Order's enjoyable city developing management sim, comes having a new day and evening cycle, a dynamic lighting method, and enhanced skyboxes. And it truly appears fantastic: shadows gradually develop and lengthen because the sun approaches the horizon, street lamps and bridge lights turn on, the windows of skyscrapers, shops, and residences start to glow, airplanes and ships spill light from their windows, and bicycles (you will find bicycles now!) even have tiny operating headlamps.
Additionally to leisure, you are able to specialize districts for tourism, and you will find numerous new appealing buildings for the city's shorelines. Restaurants on a piers, beach volleyball courts, boat marinas, docks for fishing, as well as other attractions. Other new ploppable buildings consist of a prison, a riding steady, a cargo hub that handles each ship and train-based freight, along with a sprawling international airport which will make you hate the words "Slope as well steep!" like you by no means have prior to. You will find also new roads with devoted bus, cab and bike lanes, along with a handful of new policies like 1 that encourages bicycle use and an additional that cuts down on nighttime noise pollution by creating industrial buildings close following sunset.
Evening brings greater than just visual modifications for your city, mainly by way of the new leisure specialization tool. You are able to assign industrial zones to act as nighttime hotspots, that will create karaoke bars, film theaters, nightclubs, and lounges your city's residents will flock to following hours.
 This naturally indicates a rise in visitors to these locations within the evenings, which can partially be alleviated by the new taxi fleets integrated using the expansion. Crime, as you'd anticipate, increases at evening, which may be countered by raising the police spending budget throughout evening hours. Actually, all your budgets now have separate sliders for evening and day, so you are able to handle the fluctuating demands, like electrical energy and public transportation, that include the setting sun.

As a pure enhancement,
although, Following Dark does the job nicely. The new choices for devoted lanes in roads are fantastic, the new buildings are enjoyable and helpful, and also the leisure and tourism locations provide you with some enjoyable new issues to concentrate on. Laying roads and rail lines at evening initially feels irritating, simply because it is so dark you cannot see a damn factor, however the nighttime may be rapidly toggled off and on within the menu in the event you occur to become operating when the sun goes down.
