The Community Alliance’s Owen Saddler graced All Bar Nun on Thursday night to show off his city management skills playing Sim City 4 in front of a crowd of drunks for the RiotACT Sim Challenge.
Owen’s “City of Holy Light” had a terrible environment rating (and getting worse) partly as a result of really taking mixed use development to new levels. He also got pummeled by a dreadful meteor storm which prompted the previously unheard line from a politician: “When a meteor destroys your coal fired power station you should see it as an opportunity”
Owen described his town thusly: “It’s a pretty average little city to be honest”
After ten years of game play he had good health, and great education ratings. Land value was middling, safety poor, and traffic pretty good.
Overall he had a six green bars of mayor rating.
Owen’s population reached 21,000 and he generally ran balanced budgets leaving him with $126,000 left in the bank and his low density city filling most of the map.
He built 20 odd community gardens, as well as numerous green belts, and his city attracted a university, but declined a stadium.
Candidates wanting to book in for the last week need to move quickly as we’re fast running out of spots.
