City production

#1 Post by red » Aug 16 2007

Does your new map thingy allow for city production to be represented as facilities and so controlled by the player? That you couldn't touch this production even though it consumed resources you might like to control was a real annoyance in 2010.

With the new system, cities do not have any inherent production values. Power and goods production will be generated by components in all cases (that is how the design stands as of now, I expect this won't change).

Public transport , education , benefit payments , health programs ...
It sounds to me as a awfull lot of micromanagment :-?

Just a commodity, like consumer goods. It would model retail, financial services, healthcare, all that doesn't deal with hard goods. That kind of economic activity is currently modeled behind-the-scenes by a multiplier in the scenario file and never changes, so bringing it to the fore as a commodity would make the economy more realistic and more user-friendly.

We’re still looking for the proper terminology but for now we’re calling the two elements components and containers.
From the blog: http://www.supremeruler.com/blogs/?p=27

So a new component: "Social services" ? .... i have to agree too
But i wouldn't name it "city production" :wink:

A component to track prostitution? What a wonderful idea! I think this could go a long way to contributing to domestic approval too.

Not social services so much as just services; anything like retail, entertainment, whatever, not just healthcare.

Now it occurs to me that you can have the resource overlay for services be population, with the size of your upgrade limited by the size of the hex population. And its stockpiling etc. can be handled like electricity, but without trade. Stock would be measured in worker-days or something of that sort. And if the stats are there to do the non-commodity multiplier for 2010, surely you can make a good enough guess on their levels for 2020...?

Actually, we do! We also have a Tourism element that can be placed into cities :)

There is another new one also but that one's a secret ;)

well, both had a GDP% affect in the old system, so now it can be tied something on map that can be lost/captured.
