Does anyone not use the monorail?

Replies

  • I use mine. It’s located on the very outside of the city in a circle.

  • I use mine and right now currently in a loop outside my town running from 1 station to another and then back.
  • My monorail is still there but I disconnected it when this event started because I had a terrible lag issue. About a week ago, the lag mysteriously went away but I probably won't reconnect it until this event is over.
  • My town is monorail free, it just doesn’t go with my layout and I don’t think it’s that interesting. Less than half my neighbors have theirs set up.
  • my device sucks and the mono-rail lags my game so much it makes it hard to even scroll past it.
  • I had 2 separate rails running through my town and decided to cut pieces from both and create one large monorail instead. Then I got lazy so it’s about 32% done. Wish there was an “under construction” sign I could put on both ends
  • I have 3 stations out. 2 of them are connected by a short stretch of track. I really like how the Mall-o-Rail station looks. Tetanus Terminal is perfect for my rundown part of town. It doesn't need track. It's all broke down and not going anywhere.

    You know what would be awesome is a ground level trolley that would run down the middle of roads and have stations. That would be much less intrusive.

    Nice idea, we can have that too?

  • I think some people were hell bent on making a continuous loop around their SF.... I just kept mine simple, from the sea to the opposite side of SF and using the three original stations. Then I built around it, so everything fits in nicely :)
  • I have the stations connected together in a straight line (one piece a track between each of them) with a tight loop around the back!
  • In towns 1 and 2 I used to have a loop that went around the outskirts of my town, but I took it all down because it was interfering with remodeling my town. In town 3 I never put the tracks up. No room.
  • I have my monorail running around my entire city with loops and twists and turns
  • I have every station released, and two major circuits that 'join' at a couple of stations. Wish we could get some 'sub' stations, ie a piece of track that the train stops at. Finally got a station properly integrated to the airport, and the Halloween area.

    I don't use it. I had it out for a long time, but I felt like it blocked parts of my town so I just stored it. I like my town better without it.

    Mine is still out, but I also liked my town better without it from a design aspect.
    I love the stations though. Next time I have problems with the item limit, the tracks will have to go.

  • For what it's worth, I had a small track running up the mountains and then down the back of my spooky house farm, mainly because the noise it made travelling and slowing down/speeding up at the stations was appealing to me, but since then, I got rid of the track and hid trees and stuff behind the spooky houses to raise my rating and only keep the main station out, near the rail yard and dump, kind of like a town project just getting started
    You just had to look didn't ya!...
  • I have a small one going in my Springfield Heights area. Its more my Vegas area. The other stations are just out for currency right now.
  • I wanted the monorail in the game. I looked forward to it and was glad when it showed up. After using it for a while, though, I just found it to be more trouble than it was worth. Hard to integrate and a real pain to move when an ever-expanding Springfield required it. So now it sits in storage, communing with assorted npc's, ugly buildings and useless event crafted items. It was a worthy experiment and I'm glad some people really seem to like it, but for me it's best consigned to the Island of Misfit Toys.
    That's a cold shot, baby. Yeah, that's a drag.
  • I've been building since day one of the Monorail. It's currently one track running around my town. The round trip takes over 7 minutes but will continue to expand as new land becomes available :) With the changes to the daily payouts I have finally gotten rid of the unwanted S pieces and am reducing my item count by replacing the short straights.

    Hey @AirurandoP, is the image of your entire town still available for public viewing? I always liked checking it out.

    It's still there but I haven't updated it for a while. Will have to. The signatures changed so I can't link it to my signature anymore :( but I can edit this post with a link. You're the first to mention checking it out.
