Description

Rush Hour is the first expansion pack for SimCity 4.

This expasion allows you to take complete control of your city by allowing you to jump directly into the action. You can take control of a speedboat and chase criminals through your canals, you can take your Sims on a tourist ride by hopping into the engineer's booth of a train, you can track down criminals in a police car, being sure to avoid traffic, you can call in the heavy artillery and take control of your army's tank, or you can please the populace by taking control of a single engine plane and and impress everyone with skywriting.

You have a plethora of new transportation options available, to make your Sims trips easier and faster. You can build elevated railways, saving precious ground space, you can create a ferry system to transport Sims from one of your islands to another (residential to industrial, perhaps?), you can construct a monorail network to get Sims to long destinations fast, and you can add double-wide avenues along your city streets to increase speed, and possibly traffic.

Rush Hour allows you to personalize your city by giving you the ability to name streets, highways, neighborhoods, mountains, and bodies of water.

Three new disasters have been added. The major disaster lets you rain down a UFO attack on your city. You may also cause traffic accidents and train derailments.
