Hee hee! *claps excitedly* The title kinda says it all except the reason. And it’s nothing so mundane as a sale. Not so far as I know anyway, although that would be quite an awesome coincidence.

No, no. It’s better than a gift of mere dollars off. It’s the gift of knowledge.

I’ve mentioned T4rget before — but the summary is that he was my favourite Cities: Skylines builder to learn from. His Design & Manage Season 2 is what I credit for becoming an even halfway decent builder myself and I was incredibly saddened when it petered out. Those 17 or so episodes were essentially the reason I can watch other builders now and pick-up on what they’re doing even if it isn’t as well explained.

So! To see T4rget is back with a Season 3 to launch imminently is perhaps the best news. If you’ve perhaps bought the game in the past but couldn’t really ever break through the crust of it or heck, even if you did, now could be a really good time to jump back in.

At the time of writing, the first full episode is still yet to release — with a premiere time of 23:00 10/04 NZST / 04:00 10/04 PDT.

But there it is for when it does air! Or the full playlist link here.

In the meantime though, there is a short prologue video for the series to come that shows off the map T4rget will be playing on and the like.

Who knows, perhaps this will get me to kick off a fresh take of the Blogger City which I somewhat… abandoned… in the process of switching PCs and my Cities: Skyline mod install base.

Either way, excited to see what I learn this time around.

Man…did they ever fix having to micro manage your garbage? I remember really digging City Skylines but hating how I had to clean up the trash every five-ten minutes.

Otherwise, it’s been a hot minute since I last played Cities: Skylines and…you know I wouldn’t mind popping back in again. :P

    Hmm. If you were trying to use nothing but recycling centres and stay green, I could see the capacity there filling up pretty rapidly and requiring micromanagement.

    If you’re willing to use landfills, at least to start with, it becomes much more manageable.

    Later on you get better options for waste distribution. You can setup a rather centralised processing area, with distribution plants more community based and it works pretty well. :)

      Is that in the expansions, or has that been patched into the base game? I legit haven’t played Cities since 2015, so I’m super out of the loop.

        I had to check myself. So a few bits are from DLCs.

        Recycling itself is, perhaps unsurprisingly, in the Green Cities DLC. Incinerators are in the base game, but the waste transfer stations are in the latest DLC, Sunset Harbour.

        It’s also possible — if not likely — that there will be some free options from the Workshop too.

Oh, I think you recommended these videos to me in the past? But I actually completely forgot about that. And never went back to Cities Skylines because I still don’t get how the district stuff etc. works. I really should check out those videos… :D

    Haha! Yes, I did, last year when Season 2 was still the latest. Perhaps starting fresh with Season 3 as they come out will be a good way for you to jump in! He will definitely go over industry districts before very long. :)
