Gary builds Bing Bong Bay in this episode of SimCity gameplay.

Gary Gannon decided to give building the perfect city another try with a new episode of SimCity gameplay.  He picked a nice coastal area and set up the beginnings of Bing Bong Bay.  Once again, he made it public in order to allow some of the GAMEBREAKER community to play along with him.

He begins by dividing Bing Bong Bay in half — one side residential, the other commercial and goes from there.

“We’re losing money already.”

It doesn’t take long for Bing Bong Bay to start losing money and Gary tries to figure out why. Unfortunately, sim citizens can be really stubborn and hard to figure out.  You can think you’re doing everything right and they’ll find something to be unhappy about. Sounds almost like real people, doesn’t it?

Gary comes up with two possibilities as to what could be causing the money issue. The first? Maybe there’s just not enough people… So, let’s try building some more houses and get them in here.

The second issue is that he potentially made a mistake when deciding to skip building the less expensive streets in favor of more expensive avenues. The idea, of course, was that it would save him trying to upgrade them later — if he even could upgrade later.  But maybe this just wasn’t the way to start.

“Now I’m screwed.”

Okay… So maybe getting the more expensive roads immediately wasn’t the best decision.  Now, Gary finds himself a little short on cash to be able to build other things his citizens may want or need.  But, there might still be a way to fix it.

What way? Well, you’ll have to watch the full episode of SimCity gameplay to see what Gary comes up with.

    After playing Simcity 4 with rush hour for a month or two over the last two years.  You might try to just zone with crappy roads but many more people an jobs.  Keep out of the red, an in the green an get a mass of moneys.  Then distroy parts of it to make the city you actually want.

    In SC4 we don’t even put in water until all the residential is full an has to be upgraded.  Part of the tutorial was saying this such an such mayor was mean to the people, but had milions of dollars, so in part that was the fun part, being mean, an getting rich, but it would help ya.

    Ouch, that was rough seeing Gary getting hit with some of the connction problems that later turned into news stories. 

    Nonetheless I like this new feature, it’s cool to watch someone else really trying out a game to see whether or not you might want to try it out yourself.   (Although I still prefer the Gameplays where Gary is playing with other people).
