    Anyone else playing that? I've never played any of the Sim City games and am completely lost! UGH!! Any help would be appreciated. Maybe sites to check out of how to play. I'm looking now too!

    Thanks.

    Any specific questions? I've loved SimCity since Playstation 1. Was really excited when I saw it on iPad.

    anyone knows how to attract hi-tech industries? i kept getting that from petitioner but i think i've done everything i can to induce them . i.e. built mass transit, built parks, upgraded all industrial zone to high density, built firestation and police station in good coverage, shools and colleges built, high funding in education, and full ordinances of clean industries and high-tech industries .

    Hmmm I haven't had a lot of success in that myself, but have you tried clearing out some of your older industry to see whether high tech takes its place?

    Also, I have a question - has anyone figured out how to get 3x3 residential snd commercial buildings to develop without under-utilized areas (eg residential gardens) appearing around them? And does anyone know if you can build 4x4 res or comm buildings in this version?

    Hi guys, I’ve just registered to this forum but have been playing SimCity for a long time and was looking for a forum for the iPad version

    It’s actually pretty easy to attract high tech industry.
    From my experience, land value doesn’t have a massive impact.

    The key things I have found that effect development of high-tech are;
    Ordinances
    Education
    Police/Fire

    Enact the following ordinances;
    Public Access Cable
    Biotech Tax Incentives
    Electronics Job Far
    Electronics Tax Incentives
    Clean Industry Association
    Tourist Promotion
    I also have passed the Industrial Pollutant Impact Fee and Conservation Corps but I’m not sure how much baring they have on it.

    Obviously, for hi-tech to develop you need a high level of education.
    Always make sure your schools/colleges have an A rating. This is easy – simply have enough school and colleges to cover the amount of students. Perhaps increase funding to 105% also.
    Include Library’s, also with an A rating. I’m not sure how much effect Museums have but education is key.

    And have good fire/police coverage and you will definitely get hi-tech.

    Here are a couple of pics of some hi tech in a recent city

    some.jpgsome2.jpgcity.jpg

    Also regarding the 3x3 res buildings someone asked .... you can see some very nice high res buildings in the middling of the last picture. From what I've seen so far in the game these are the best res building you can get in this version... haven't really experimented much with 4x4 but don't think there is any.
    Those buildings you can see will only develop when you have very high or astronomical land value.
    LV will increase over time but the main factors to increase it are water, parks and police/fire coverage.

    Oh and Marina's i believe are the best for increasing LV

    Hope I've helped.

    Quick Question for everyone, I'm on my IPod 5th Gen. And I'm trying to reply to start my own SimCity Thread but for some reason it will not show me the option to start a thread or reply to one for example right now I am quoting someone so I can reply, if I don't quote no one I cannot reply

    Hi there...yes, we have identified this as a slight issue with the use of the IPF app. After you type your response, press the return button to show the send button. The send button will be greyed out otherwise and you won't be able to send.

    To start a thread you need to be in a section of the forum. You should be able to locate that option by pressing the boxed arrow. There, you will find the options to start a new thread.

    Nice City I deleted all my other cities and started a new one, going to be focusing on 1, How do you get you land value high? I've noticed you have The Fritz, and the Scarlet Hotels but you need to have "Very High or Astronomical" Land value how do you get it up, and again I like your city looks great!

    How do you check your cities aura?

    I can see how to turn it in on in one of the views-I think it's in the graphing menu-but it just puts a color code over the city. The color presumably represents the aura of the city, however I can't find any type of key to show what the different colours mean. My city is mostly yellow on the aura overlay-however I have no idea if that means good, not bad, or start looking for a new hob! Can anyone help?

    Yellow= Good, Red= Bad For some weird reason whenever I place parks or gardens it turns the aurora to red, or maybe it's the other way around? Lol well either way I think yellow means good, and I do not expect for EA games to update SimCity DLX (It took 1 year to update it and I know that was the last and only update)
