High tech and manufacturing/dirty industry don't mix. If you have a lot of high tech demand you might be able to have high tech in a different part of the city from dirty industry, but a lot of the time I just have a more working class city with all the manu/dirty and then a more upper middle class city with high tech and office.

Raise the education level of your sims as well as keep pollution levels low. Those are the main ingredients for high tech preference over dirty industry.

Cities:Skylines comes out next month, that looks like a promising replacement for anyone who enjoys Simcity 4.

There is a video game forum in CityData.

Damn... thought video games had finally become real-life.

Guess I'll put the guns away and give that old guy's car back.
