I started to work with CryEngine Sandbox eight years ago. (damn, already 11 years?) I also work with Game Maker.
Since RS have some performance issues in more dense environment, I decided to make a better system of loading world map in order to keep FPS above 60.
With the newer map system, I need a piece of map compatibile with that. While building this new town, I find myself thinking about it much more than while playing Sim City.
Unlike Sim City, now I'm really thinking about parking places, parks and for example location of hotel.
