Weekly Video: Planning Solved?
Forgive me for posting this — it’s admittedly over-the-top, but when Daniella shared this video over the weekend, I was floored. On one hand, it speaks directly to my love for Sim City, which is strong enough that I no longer play the game for fear that it will consume my existence. On the other hand, the video strips away the illusion that there is an art to building a Sim metropolis by breaking things down mathematically (boo!). Then again, perhaps I’m missing the bigger picture… perhaps this hard won discovery of Sim City perfection has real-world implications that will transform the way we build cities… the ideal, uber-walkable super-district, systemically duplicated.
Or maybe it’s just a video game.
Judge for yourself…
