My friend and I started a region and we are both making out starting cities. Like most starting cities, they are kind of a "jack of all trades" since it was important to establish the services, have a good mix of all three zones, etc.
Now that my first city is up and running well, I want to make a new one. Problem is, I'm not sure what to do:
I am torn between making an Education/Tourist city with a university, a stadium and a lot of residential/commercial. My goal is to get some high tech stuff going on and having a university would really help.
My other option is to create a mostly industrial town, maybe do some oil drilling since one of the plots of land has high oil reserves. If I did this, I would still put down a university, but it would be focused much more on sciences and since its an industrial city, it would not be a very good "college town".
What do you think is more important to establish?
