SimCity Mod Expands City Sizes
A new mod for SimCity has expanded the size of the game’s cities.
The mod, dubbed Project Orion by its creator, extends the boundaries of the game’s maps to 3KM. This, of course, is almost quadruple the size of the default which its developers had previously claimed to be the most the game could handle while still keeping performance in “an acceptable range.”
It should be noted, of course, that using the mod can cause some minor issues with neighboring cities and land values. Even so, this is still an arguably impressive accomplishment, especially since it makes a change that the game’s actual developers had previously branded as unfeasible. Granted, it wouldn’t be the first time a modder had done the supposedly impossible with SimCity, but who’s keeping count?
