In the SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition, players can create a megalopolis by weaving together a tapestry of cities ranging from a bedroom community to a high tech urban center or a vacation destination to a farming village. Similar to the original SimCity 4, players can create a region of interconnected cities sharing and competing for resources that are linked by a fully integrated transportation network. Players will use "god-like" powers to create mountain ranges, carve valleys, and lay rivers to construct the most realistic metropolis imaginable. The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition simulation engine gives players immediate feedback so they can react to the needs of an expanding metropolis. Now individual buildings and their lots provide feedback to the player. Players can personalize their Sim and immediately move him or her into any area and watch them experience life around town and get instant feedback on the city's progress. Each decision has a greater impact and gives players the ability to respond more effectively.
