Complete Building Density Table is now available at the
Simcity 3000 Resource Center. It includes the
building footprint, population, density, and pollution level for every building in the game!
The following table contains information about select buildings among the hundreds in Simcity 3000. It was obtained by
using the building placement cheat, placing a single (powered and watered) building on an empty map, and then checking the graphs.
Yes, the process is tedious, but I wanted to get an idea of the numbers involved.
The highest density in this table is 157 Sims per tile. Therefore, given a large map which is 256 by 256 tiles, the theoretical maximum
population is 157*256*256 = 10,289,152. Just for fun, the maximum power consumption is 13*256*256 = 851,968
(~17 Fusion Plants) and maximum water consumption is 14*256*256 = 917,504 (~600 Pumping Stations). Of course, these are just theoretical maxima.
- W - Width in squares
- Size - Sims that occupy that building
- S/t - Sims per tile
- P - Power consumption
- P/t - Power consumption per tile
- W - Water consumption
- W/t - Water consumption per tile
