SimCity Disasters 101 Video Unveiled
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Electronic Arts has released a new video featuring a guide to surviving disasters in the upcoming SimCity. Scheduled for an early 2013 release, development of the latest incarnation of the popular city building sim is being led by Maxis. SimCity Mac will once again give players the chance to construct and manage a thriving city.

Fresh off the reel, SimCity Public Service Pictures presents to you, How to Deal with Disasters. When taking over the mayorship of a city, one must be prepared to resolve a variety of situations like loiters outside of city hall, two donut shops opening next door to each other and how to explain why citizens keep disappearing when those U.F.O.s appear. Disasters are back and with helpful tips from people like Howard of New Haven, Connecticut, you can learn if bigger is indeed better. Did Howard allocate space for police, fire and health in his megatropolis?

Disaster prevention begins with safety. We offer several tips to ensure the least amount of damage to your city. First, fire stations are your friend. Make sure you have enough fire trucks to protect your city in case of earthquakes, meteor strikes or something more ominous. Second, be sure to tip your hat to your police chief. When disaster strikes, make sure your citizens are adequately protected from the dangerous things that go bump in the night. Lastly, a healthy Sim is a happy Sim even if their home has been swept away by a tornado. Donít forget to fund your hospitals and be sure you have enough waiting rooms to handle the injured Sims who will come rushing through the door. These basic city service facilities will also help you rebuild after an earthquake, meteor strike, tornado, UFO invasion or another one of the yet-to-be announced disasters touch your city.

You never know when disasters will strike, but you can begin protecting your cities from the start. Heed our advice. Disaster protection begins with safety. Best of luck to our future mayors.
