We learned about the Sandbox mode in our handson article from the SimCity events but today we get a blog that it explains it in more detail!
Choosing to set a new region in sandbox mode is like entering a gentler version of SimCity. Each city starts with a truck-load of Simoleons, with the possibility to add more via a key press, and although the simulation functions just like in the regular game, certain â€œpushbackâ€ systems can be toggled on and off at any time. Say you don’t want fires to burn down your beautifully-planned suburb? It’s as easy as hitting â€œAlt Fâ€ on your keyboard to eliminate all fires. Don’t want earthquakes or meteors to strike in the middle of your downtown? Just press â€œAlt Dâ€ and you’ll be safe from all disasters!
