Glassbox 引擎 (未完)
GlassBox 引擎是推動著《模擬城市》的一個革命性的模擬引擎。它控制著城市的模擬、控制城市間的平衡、並給予你改變模擬市民的生命的權力。這些都是透過一個獨特的圖形界面達成。玩家對城市作出的變動不再需要依靠圖表和數字來監察成效，而是可以從城市的實時反應看出改變。現在你可以在城市裡面添加不同的政府服務和產業，然後慢慢看著城市從視覺上給予你的反饋。你可以隨時操縱水源、電力、交通、污染、反業率等各種各樣的東西。有了GlassBox 引擎，城市策劃比以前變得更容易更好玩！
The GlassBox engine behind SimCity achieves its unique gameplay experience through units of information called agents. Agents travel along pathways defined by the roads in your city. They may represent units of power, goods, the signals of a fire alarm, or even the Sims themselves! Each agent has a purpose in the simulation just as they would in an actual city. A Sims objective may be to go to work, whereas the purpose of a unit of power may be to turn on the lights for a residential block. Each choice you make enables, hinders, or changes these agents and affects the overall destiny of your city!
Most of the clues to your performance as mayor of SimCity come from the look of the buildings and the behavior of your Sims. However, through data visualization layers, you can also look behind the scenes for deeper clues about how your city is functioning. See how much power is traveling through the wires, or water through the pipes under your streets. You can even look at the terrain under your city to discover coal deposits that may be useful to your citizens or possible pollution. The data visualization layers allow you to see and control every aspect of your city!
Sometimes disaster can strike your city! Fires may start in homes abandoned due to poverty, or they may be started by a crazed arsonist. Fire in the GlassBox simulation is manifested in a very realistic way. Radiant “heat” may cause nearby structures to smoke and burn, depending on their building materials. Sometimes those structures can even explode! Sims will run from burning buildings, but some may not get out in time and will have to be rushed to the hospital. Good thing you have a fire department. As the alarms go off, they will rush to the scene and hopefully keep your city from going up in smoke!
