Moonlight Fields is a city built on mostly flat terrain, with only slight changes in elevation. The area contains a few gentle rivers (not suitable for hydroelectric power) and a large lake.
There isn’t a lot of availability for renewable industry (farming and timber), so unfortunately, Moonlight Falls has to rely on oil, ore mining, and other dirty industries.
There is plenty of room for the city to grow. As the city expands, I’ve been careful to maintain green spaces and spacious public parks.
Public transport is built on a network of trams, taxis, monorails, trains, bicycle paths, and blimps. Moonlight Fields does not contain buses. (I thought I’d try something new with this city.) However, as the city gains more suburbs, a few bus lines may be added – or maybe commuter rail lines will do the job instead.
I love Cities: Skylines. It’s a beautiful game, with plenty of challenges and creativity. There are a few things that need improvement, though: the way ships spin around when leaving a dock instead of making a loop, the way cars crowd into one lane even when multiple lanes are available, and the way monorails make impossibly tight ninety-degree turns.
I can’t do anything about the ships, and mods like Traffic President can help with lane management. I can do something about the monorail tracks, though. In the city of Moonlight Fields, monorail tracks cut around intersections to avoid ninety-degree turns. This practice also creates green space.
There is an abundance of roundabouts in the city – which also creates green spaces.
So far, there is only one tourism district and one leisure district in Moonlight Fields. They’re next to each other. Traffic became jammed in the area, so I built a tram line through both districts. The tram depot is right on the other side of the freeway, so I built a short tram-only bridge, over the freeway, just to connect the depot with the tram line.
The tourism/leisure tram line alleviated traffic somewhat. The unexpected benefit of the tram bridge is that huge crowds of citizens are using the bridge’s walkway to walk to the nightclubs and gaming centers rather than wait for the train. I certainly can’t blame them. (Maybe I should extend the tram line over the bridge, and give them a ride.)
Moonlight Fields in plagued with sinkholes. Geologists don’t know why.
Don’t let the sinkholes (or the industrial pollution) scare you away from visiting lovely Moonlight Fields. There’s plenty to do and see here.
