A sad day has come. I have to retire/abandon the first city I’ve built in Cities: Skylines. I actually hit the in-game limitation on the number of buildings. (I was also rapidly approaching the limits for roads and intersections as well. The city was just TOO big. I had made it very dense, and just kept making it bigger. I had plans to keep going, but I’ve had to scrap it all now. I can’t place any type of building anymore. I’d need to go back and remove/redo half the city to be able to continue, and I don’t want to go there. I’ve grown attached to the poor city as it is.
The worst part was that I spent over an hour yesterday updating the “Old City”, adding some kewl towers and castle walls. Then I went to build my next suburb, and ran into the building limit issue.
Here are some pictures of the city to commemorate its retirement.
