All the brown squares represent no businesses/failed businesses. And it's just increasing (meaning my heavy industry is decreasing) it's about half of what the industry used to be. Complete economic collapse.
My income has gone from around $50,000 per tick to just $1,000. It was -$20,000 in the initial collapse but I managed to get finances into the black.

The issue? Well I created a little too much housing... as in my population is now 460,000... and it rapidly drove up the cost of fuel and forced my heavy industry out of business which has resulted in less tradable goods which has meant I now have no money to import more fuel to drive business back into gear to generate income for me.

Working class unemployment is now around 30%.

Time to create a second city to generate fuel so I can import it to this city for free I think.

So basically, what you're telling us is that you managed to take a rapidly developing city and through it into Great Depression level decline?

Impressive work, Muffs.

Was London a pleasant city to live in in the 1800's when it rapidly grew to the largest city in the world? No. However, the city planners were able to overcome the challenges and now it's one of the greatest cities in the world.

And "great depression" is rather harsh, it's a slight hick-up at best.

I dunno. That unemployment rate is very GD, man.

All I needed was to start a new city so that I could produce fuel in that city from oil reserves and than import it to this city cheaply and thus fuel crisis over.

I built a casino ontop of Mount Earmuffs to celebrate the climb out of the cities first recession. And further expanded my heavy industry to take advantage of the new cheap fuel. Heavy industry is now my biggest export resource meaning something finally surpassed food as my primary export/money maker.

My farming sector however is in the way of my city expansion. It looks a bit weird when you have a skyscrapper right next to a farm...

The farms are gonna have to go I suspect.

Well fuck, I guess starting a second World War just wasn't a viable option then? Consider

I love that you constructed a building dedicated to the gross haemorrhaging of money in memoriam to a crisis event defined by your city basically haemorrhaging money.

No need, plenty of oil to go around, just needed to extract it from said ground.
Though now that you mention world war, I should install hearts of iron on this computer. Consider

Indeed, I thought it appropriate.

edit: So all my farms have basically gone out of business. Apparently having an environmentally polluting heavy industry sector next to farmland isn't a good idea...

RE: What are you playing?
After repeatedly failing to enjoy Dwarf Fortress (Please don't hurt me. Please.) I've gotten back into Minecraft. I've been hoarding and mining rather than re-investing the time so I'm about ready to build.

Unfortunately I have no idea what to build. Any suggestions? (Suggestions for what architectural style I should attempt to emulate or what challenges I should build around or something along those lines. Any suggestion that is similar to the sentiment: LOL BUTTS! Will be dismissed out of hand.)

Great depression is entirely accurate.

Wiki Wrote:The Great Depression had devastating effects in countries rich and poor. Personal income, tax revenue, profits and prices dropped, while international trade plunged by more than 50%. Unemployment in the U.S. rose to 25%, and in some countries rose as high as 33%.

Detroit (to cite the most famous awful industrial slum) at it's absolute worst has never had an unemployment rate greater than 17%.

Preempting the joke that may be made in response to my preemptive response to the joke:

LOL BUTTZ!!0|\|3!!1

(Not that I'd accuse anybody here of being; so painfully predictable.)
