This time around, the focus has shifted to building a tourism industry in your city. The player earns money from a number of different types of tourists, each with a different set of needs. Over 100 new buildings in five new archetypes -- Family Fun, Adventure, First Class, Religious Retreat and Forced Relaxation -- have been added to the game to help the player fulfill the tourists' needs. Under the player's guidance, a city can grow from a no-star destination to a five-star hot spot. Also included are new Special Sims, policies, achievements, and a new scenario.
