    Good day to all mayors, and to FHI employees

    To this day, it's not been officially announced, but still we could begin our wishlist for it. If we speak ahead of things, maybe FHI will listen to us this time. I'm not too good with the programming side, so I will list most things as in-game stuff, I leave programming to those who are strong with it.

    Please post below WHAT NEEDS TO BE IN SEQUEL Cities XXL:

    -Everything contained in original XL that worked fine.
    -Every player made mod from XLnation incorporated.
    -Blueprints(tons of them).
    -Trains, central station, many substations as well as commercial lines/facilities.
    -Modular airports and ports.
    -The return of Omnicorp and a enhanced trading between cities.
    -XL Nations(nations in game).
    -In-game political, economical and catastrophic events.
    -Sewers and pipes for water and grid overlay.
    -Electrical facilities and grid overlay.
    -Streets with stop signs and other road panels.
    -More parks, in shapes, size and form.
    -Themes for cities: asian, north american, european, etc(this was not pushed to the intended place-GEMS)
    -A living sky with no chemtrails. :)
    -Building that you see getting built and decay when underused/abandoned.
    -Unhappy citizens leaving.
    -100% tax control.

    I leave the rest to others to fill with their ideas. HAVE FUN

    FHI LISTEN TO US....

    That is all you wish for?
    Or only the upper 1% of wishes?
    :cautious: :)

    Well, I hope you can keep your hopes in check with some of these features. I just don't see some of those wishes on your list being made, and honestly, some of them don't much much sense to be included. XL Nations? We have an entire forum dedicated to that here. And chemtrails? Seriously?

    Well, maybe I'm losing some of my concept in translation. You may be right that most of what I dream of will not be included, but one can always dream.

    @snick, what are thoses points of mine you are sure that would not be in a sequel like XXL, and why not, programming too hard?

    And what I mean by In-game Nations, you can look at it more like Regions or area with a bunch of cities in, unrelated to another(very practical for people with childrens-they dont touch yours), like there was in simcity at some point.

    As for the chemtrails, they are already in the game, I don't like it and wish to see them go away.

    This new "game" or Add-on have to feel alive! what you said for your wishlist is for me the base to have if they want me to buy it!

    so here is my "little" add to the list ;)

    - TGV system
    - camping zone or "park"
    - better looking highway
    - MORE building! cause..it's boring when you have 300 time the same building in your city! or at least transform the existing building to add more version and height.
    - make the game alive, like non-static boats! clouds, rain, seasons...
    - AND please, change the peaple! they are ugly and cheap!
    - add smoke to house chimney
    - add life to hospital...police station..fire station..
    - CEMETERY! and not just one style ;)
    - more single house style
    - make modding more easy
    - and the chance to add your own music in the game :)
    - dont let us think that you abbandonned the game ;)
    - i would love to have a real amusment park or a DLC
    - real city connection map
    - more school style and better looking university
    - add event list to stadium
    - manifestation
    - Taxi station
    - I would love to buy a DLC for futuristic cities ;)
    - OH!!! realistic farm with living animal and more farm style
    - rural type housing
    - casino's..with crimes ;)
    - great construction "monument" "landmark" unique on each map :)

    keep the game as it is right now (with no bug) Add players request and i think it's going to be the best city builder since SC4, and the CXL community and the modders are awesome! the recipe for success :)

    All I want is:
    Reduction of lag.
    Correct traffic movement in intersections (not only one lane at a time to any direction)
    Rail systems
    More customisation to roads + proper RHM system.

    I agree with this list. I will add:
    -Many More(real and/or fake) stores, restaurants, hotels, etc.
    -More T1 Houses
    -More Streets with grass between the street and sidewalk (in-game grass paved street)
    -A higher demand for retail
    -Bigger maps
    -When a road is placed over an area with a small slope, the road will cut through the ground and leave guard walls
    -Issues that will change your city's function depending on your resolution/dismissal (Nation States)
    -Oil production will change profitability of gas stations (modded stations; there were none in-game)
    -More and bigger schools, libraries, and universities
    -Military action-send invasions to random places to gather resources, money, and to increase power and respect
    -Possibly more things!

    A functional rail system would be nice. I personally am more interested in freight than passenger.

    I would be nice if the moon travelled across the sky in the same direction as the sun. I'm not sure how anyone thought that having a full moon right next to the sun was a good idea. If they could just be 180 degrees apart at all times, that would be great.

    We also need a lumber mill, a wooden goods factory, or something to that effect.

    A working CXL Platinum with bugs fixed.
    -Traffic to use multiple lanes at once thru intersections.

    Integrated Mods
    -RHM with cars displayed on all pieces.
    -Crime and Leisure Mod or a least a working crime simulation.
    -Trees and Parks to reduce pollution.
    -Most current mods compatible

    Additional Features
    -Police, Fire, Ambulance animations
    -Building construction animation with cranes on skyscrapers
    -Timed construction period. Big skyscrapers would take a minute or so even on fastest play setting. Airports even longer.
    -Trains. Passenger and Freight with stations. Large airport should have provisions for rail and subway passenger and freight stations to work if placed adjacent to airport.

    1) Multiple CPU usage (they will..)
    2)Usable Trains & Pipeline & electricity (they will..)
    4a) Implement more Modularity when building a town, new Zoning 10x10, 10x20, 10x30, 20x20, 20x30, 30x30 etc..... Properties in real life are many times much smaller than 40x40 ... no ?
    4b)More Buildings of all types ... make richer building packs of EU,US,ASIA,BEACH,SKY ..
    4c)Support w2w zoning by default !! (no way they will... !! )

    5)Modular Utilities Buildings ! water,waste,electricity,fuel, harbors,airports. ( ?? )

    6)Make Zoning with custom buildings possible under specific circumstances ( i doubt on the new owners of the game are that creative, this might be possible with a mod instead, here..)

    7) Custom Content Support so we continue to use our old mods... CXL wouldn't be such a great game without XLNATION, same with Sim City 4 without Simtropolis.... (they will.. cause they will use the same game engine, CXXL is an Upgrade not a new game)

    WE ARE THE POWER OF THE GAME !! I would never play Cities CXL without all those mods because this make everything 1.000.000 better than the original game....specialy with those bugs, The Game Developers should be aware of this and take some lessons from us !

    40x20 Mansions would be pretty nice. Even 30x20 mansions would be good.

    Yes, Asymmetry is wanted in order to create realism in districts,neighborhoods...

    Asymmetry,Variety ,modularity(no CB,flexible snapping)..original Lot size are ugly and unrealistic...again :D I love the Latin Pack because there are many winy tiny buildings, like in real life... come to my village and see what i mean ... lol :p
