Cities In Motion Adds Design Marvels, Design Classics DLC
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive recently released two new additions to its mass public transportation simulator, Cities in Motion. The Design Marvels and Design Classics DLC packs each add five new forms of transporation to the game. Cities in Motion allows players to visit a variety of cities in different time periods where they must build profitable transportation systems.

Design Classics adds five brand new vehicles to Cities in Motion. Expand the cities transit capabilities while providing your citizens with new and exciting comute options.

Bus: Jubilee Blim
The Jubilee Blim is the iconic minibus of the early 60's. It is compact, cozy and has a unique silhouette. Despite its cute look, the Jubilee Blim doesn't lag behind its competitors: its boasts a powerful engine and a well-built frame, making it fast and sturdy.

Tram: Livingstone Inauguration
The Livingstone Inauguration sports a modern braking and acceleration control system, making the tram easy to steer. However, the delicate devices also make the tram prone to malfunctions. All Livingstone trams are produced in Wakefield, England, and shipped all over the world.

Metro: Arnauld Porte
The French-built Arnauld Portes are well-known for their elegant rattan covered seats. They can carry large amounts of passengers and are very sturdy. These reliable metro trains first entered service in London in 1915 and soon became popular in continental cities as well.

Boat: Tiergarten Ferry
The Tiergarten Ferry comes from Sweden and is built very sturdy. It is fairly slow due to mainly being used as a sightseeing boat, but the solid frame and well-designed coal-heated steam engine make it a good vessel of choice for the backbone of the water transportation infrastructure.

Heli: Skylark III
The Skylark has its roots in the French military, but has also lately been modified for civilian use. It has a large canopy, allowing the passengers to enjoy the view while travelling. The Skylark is very maneuverable due to its enhanced tail rotor and durable landing gear.

Design Marvels:

DLC-Bus01, Dino Vettore
The flagship of a North Italian factory, Vettore is one of the largest buses ever produced. Providing comfortable seating in two floors with stairs installed in front and rear, it can a large amount of passengers. Vettore was originally intended for long-distance transport but recently the factory has began to produce a slightly shortened version for regional route use.

DLC-Bus02: Comet Ambienta
Comet Ambienta was introduced to the world in 1995 by the successful Swedish manufacturer. Its design was inspired by smooth forms of nature and recent developments in space engineering. From a technical point-of-view, being environmentally compatible was given a high significance the result is one of the cleanest buses ever produced with very low level of exhaust emissions and especially noise-abating body construction.

DLC-Heli01: Roto-Tec Leopard
Belgian helicopter manufacturer Roto-Tec was formed following a merger of two smaller companies. Leopard was initially designed to meet the growing needs of providing air transport links to oil rigs. It features two reliable turboshaft engines and an especially robust fuselage. In early 1980s, a new version was introduced with an efficient de-icing system to better withstand freezing conditions. Leopard is a medium heavy helicopter with a nice seating capacity.

DLC-Tram01: Prospecta Experimental
Prospecta Experimental's design aims to break not only the conventions of tram design but those of the public transportation as a whole. Its main features are large windows, smooth surfaces and most notably, the zigzag configuration of the tram cars. The seating layout is designed to encourage social interaction among passengers leaving empty, open spaces in the cars. One peculiar feature in the design is the use of balconies, giving a luxury feeling to the tram. Prospecta Experimental runs on electricity and therefore is a very green choice for the environmentally aware traveler.

DLC-Metro01: Capitol W700 automatic
W700 is a 6-car aluminum metro train configuration manufactured by the combined American-Japanese Capitol factories. It is the seventh generation of driverless metro trains which are remote-controlled by Automatic Train Operating system. To better cater the needs of peak hours, the carriages have longitude seating arrangements, thus allowing more room for standing passengers. W700 has lower maintenance costs than its predecessor models and its refurnished construction provides better energy efficiency.

Design Marvels and Design Classics are available now for $4.99 (USD) each.
