Part 06 - Industrialization


It's time to make our city a power of industry. I've viewed a few speedruns of the game to find different strategies, and a few strategies that take the population up to 600,000 and beyond actually involve heavy industry. I can't promise that, but I will try to get the population as high as I can. Right now, it really isn't important to get the city exactly where we want it zone for zone. We can bulldoze and transition zones later. What you see is only going to be a rough outline. I will go over the list of gifts very soon, but not in this video. I've got a page from the Nintendo Power strategy guide and the manual so I'll include that soon. I'm still unsure of what I want to do with gifts since there could be a tradeoff between using up a zone and population. I wanted to hit 400,000 in this video, but I ran out of time. We're going to approach a Megalopolis before you know it.
