Hello.

What are Busses for?
I dont understand the use

Nothing changed When i build them.
It would be nice When you get money for many Users or Other benefits.

Which sizes can buildings have?
3×3

Maybe a commercial with 4×4 or 4×5.
A big mall with all Shops in it.
Big faktories and such Stuff...

Hello ScheF,

Busses reduces the traffic on the streets (less cars means less pollution and less noise)
You need a Bus depot and some bus stations connecting the industrial and commercial zones to the residental areas.

8x8 is the max building size.
Some bigger buildings have 4x4 to 6x6 tiles size.
All above this size is too huge for regular city buildings and only used for special landmarks like the castle or something like this.

A 4x4 shopping mall is already existing :wink:
A huge lvl €€€ factory also.

More buildings will come to town with the next updates.

Is it possible to add more nature? Use forrests similair to national parks? Let some parts of the map to remain natural? Is it possible for a game engine to accept these ideas? ;)

Sure, this should be possible.

But i don´t think that it will make sense.
Most of the maps are too small to have a big national park area.
People want to build roads and houses, they want their cities to grow bigger and bigger.

You are right but national park or something similair should boost residental areas ;) Central Park in New York proves that big forrest-like-park helps to build skyscraper and stuff. In Seoul they distroyed the expressway to recreate water and make some green areas and soon all bussines wanted to be close to this place because people started to gather there. I know that there are gamers that want to build cities that are as big as it is possible but i think that some gamers just want to build city that looks great and is ideal in their opinion. The game gives a possibility to build the city of your dreams and well... Do you want to live in a city where there are only roads and factories? I don't think so but of course you need them for economy ;) It is the way to choose what is good and what is need. For now TheoTown is hard on the start because you need profit to play but I think that to have it hard later you need people's demands that are hard to fulfill. Like ban the factories. Some residents don't like them. Not only these who live near them. So tou must plan, plan and plan ;)

And what about underground subway? It might look and work just like pipes. Station on the streets like bus stops and pipes underground with different look.

Subways should be possible with the used game engine.
