Cities: Skylines Map Becomes A Poop-Powered Calculator

Cities: Skylines Map Becomes A Poop-Powered Calculator

While it’s impressive seeing games like Minecraft being turned into weird little computers, there’s something about achieving the feat in Cities: Skylines that makes it seem so much more impressive.

Daniel Bali has, with the aid of some wind turbines and water pumps, managed to build a very small, very slow “4-bit adder” machine that is Turing complete.

To do this, he needed to build two types...

Someone Recreated GTA V's Los Santos In Cities: Skylines

Someone Recreated <i>GTA V</i>'s Los Santos In <i>Cities: Skylines</i>
SteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.  

Rome wasn't built in a day, but I'm starting to get the impression that Cities: Skylines players could've made it happen. The game's only been out for a few days and someone's already made an eerily accurate recreation of Grand Theft Auto V's Los Santos.

Steam user grockefeller created a mod that adds the...

Cities: Skylines Is Becoming A Board Game

Cities: Skylines Is Becoming A Board Game

Last year, Paradox announced that a range of board game adaptations were on the way for some of their biggest titles. The first is Crusader Kings II , and the second will be Cities: Skylines.

While you’d expect a Skylines board game to be all about plastic buildings, that’s actually not the case; like the underlying design of the video game itself, this is going to be all about zones, with...

Cities: Skylines Is Going Back To College

Cities: Skylines Is Going Back To College

Universities are enormous, sprawling places, so it makes sense that if you were going to put one in a city-building game, it should be a much bigger (and more complicated) deal than simply dropping a 3x3 structure on the map and leaving it be.

Telling Stories About A Decaying Small Town With Cities: Skylines

Telling Stories About A Decaying Small Town With Cities: Skylines

YouTuber TazerHere has created a sleepy Texas town called Berrysville in immaculate detail, but what really makes it unique is that it is chock full of stories created by community members.

In a playlist of 11 build videos, TazerHere has built up the small town of Berrysville in immaculate miniature detail. It is an astounding piece of work that clearly required a lot of mods and particular...

Low-Angle Satellite Photos Look Like The Best City-Building Game Ever Made

Planet, a company that runs “the largest fleet of Earth-imaging satellites in orbit”, use those satellites to take hi-res, zoomed-in shots of the surface. Some of those are isometric, and that’s got me longing .

I love a good Cities: Skylines time-lapse video, and this cinematic depiction of a city springing up from its designed bones by YouTube user Ben Barton leans into everything that makes the game great.

I particularly like the way that the video moves around the different spaces of a Skylines city that often...

You can do a lot of things with city builder games. You can replicate real cities , or you can simulate massive natural disasters . A YouTuber going by the name of “donoteat” uses Cities: Skylines to explain the politics and power behind the creation of American cities.

The world of Cities: Skylines “builder” YouTubers is substantial. Video creators like Strictoaster and Fluxtrance have carved...

I’m a believer in the power of Cities: Skylines cinematic videos as calming experiences, and a video of digital animals just hanging around is just what the doctor called for.

In this instance, I am the doctor, and I’m prescribing you a few minutes of watching a camera sweep over animals that...

City Planner Caught Using Cities: Skylines Screenshot In Proposal

City Planner Caught Using <i>Cities: Skylines</i> Screenshot In Proposal

Cities: Skylines is a great city-building video game, and fans all over the world know it. It is not a hardcore city-planning simulator, but that didn’t stop one town development firm from using a screenshot in their brochure for a potential new town outside of Norfolk in the United Kingdom.

In a wonderful article for the Eastern Daily Press, reporter Jessica Frank-Keyes points out that a...

I Love This Quaint British Retail Park Built In <i>Cities: Skylines</i>

Making spectacular or larger-than-life places in Cities: Skylines is fun, but there’s something special about creating everyday locations with the game’s worldbuilding toolkit.

YouTuber Greenbeak has created the ultimate quotidian location with Skylines: a small British village with a shopping district. While I’m not from Britain, I do spend most of my time wandering through...

Cities: Skylines is an excellent tool for doing basically anything at this point, and intrepid YouTuber Crumbs McGee has used it to create a small diorama of post-apocalyptic action inspired by Fallout 76.

While Skylines is mostly known for being a city building game, the advent of the Steam Workshop on PC and its thousands of importable objects and mods that alter the code of...

An intrepid filmmaker going by the name of TDB Games has created a rousing 24-minute movie called “Yoko” about the destruction of a small city. It’s very good.

Cinematic Tours of <i>Cities: Skylines </i>Megacities Are So Relaxing

Cities: Skylines is a game that I keep going back to. Even though new and interesting content packs come out for it regularly, I find myself drawn to the scale of the game more than its content. I mean, it’s big, and flying through it set to a calm soundtrack is the ultimate soothing experience.

A flythrough tour of a massive Cities: Skylines build is wonderful because I know exactly how much...

Oh, <i>Cities: Skylines</i> Is Now Also A Theme Park Game

I was happy enough with Cities: Skylines when it was just about building cities , but it’s now adding the ability to construct giant theme parks as well, so cool, why not.

Parklife, an upcoming expansion for the game, adds a bunch of stuff like national parks and theme parks (which you can set ticket prices for and create paths inside), but the most important new thing might be the...

Father and Son Bond Over Excellent Cities: Skylines Project

Father and Son Bond Over Excellent <i>Cities: Skylines </i>Project

A dad and his 7-year-old son are creating a city together. Separated by a river, they build in isolation. One day, maybe, each side will connect up with the other.

When I was a kid, the best shot that I had of playing a game with an adult was a wholesome game of checkers or, maybe, getting to do some over-the-shoulder viewing of Myst. I certainly didn’t experience what dad Michael and his...

A Malaysian City Recreated In Cities: Skylines

A Malaysian City Recreated In <i>Cities: Skylines</i>

I love a good Cities: Skylines build, and this cinematic flythrough of a recreation of the Federal Territory of Putrajaya in Malaysia is something special to see. There’s real care taken by the creator, Gilbert Plays, to make something that models the feeling of an actual city. While I’m no expert on Putrajaya (and so therefore cannot vouch for how accurate it is), there’s a real effort being...
