Players can see the consequences of their actions and dig in to see how the systems work. With new data visualization layers, players can look under the surface for deeper clues about how their city is functioning. Click the power layer for an instant snapshot of how electricity is distributed throughout the city. Access the water layer to find the best location to plop a water tower. Discover where criminals cause crime by clicking on the crime layer, then plop a police station to protect the Sims! All of this is done through a unique graphic interface, which replaces charts and numbers with the experience of actually manipulating the city itself and seeing how it responds in real time.
