Can add your own maps rather simply with this http://terrain.party/.  Takes a bit of work to make the map usable though.  I've probably spent more time map making then I have city building!

My main city is a nightmare of traffic gridlock. It doesn't help that I decided to flood a large highway interchange with some river water tainted with sewer outflow.

I mostly prefer to build then destroy.

My effort at the minute, traffic issues are a royal pain in the a**, I spend more time sorting them than anything else at the minute! ha ha.

That middle road reminds me of gravelly hill.

I've had crazy traffic problems, I also made the very common mistake of adding a dam.

I finish exams in pretty much 2 months now and was considering this for an after exam celebration but every time it's discussed it seems to just be "Traffic. Traffic traffic traffic. Here's my population but traffic." Is it a city builder or a road planner sim?

Avoided the Dam mistake so far as luckily seen all the issues in videos.

Butjam, I think it's both! Ha ha. Due to gamers constant wanting more realism I think they've taken a massive step here with traffic  and as city builders we now  have to actually think about road placement rather than just  plop them wherever we like. Actually gives me more understanding of why for example in London  (plus other UK cities)there are so many one way systems!

It's not as bad as simcity traffic tho, so that's something.

Also there are some nice mods out which help you track traffic and pin-point problem areas. Also as you do more play-throughs you tend to (at least I do) recognize which intersections are going to become issues as you grow and modify or avoid them.

Traffic is an issue for sure, but setting up decent passenger rail and bus systems can help avoid it. As Rodders said, traffic is an issue but still WAY better than SimCity.

The traffic is quite fun to mess around with, I tend to just add more and more roads until it works xD

I bought the game a few days ago, and I like it far more than the sim city which came out in 2013. Traffic can be an issue, but public transport (buses, mostly) and proper roads usually do the trick.



I have a few congestion issues on the main avenue heading from left to right, mostly because there are numerous junctions. I have policies enacted to force lorries carrying large cargo to go around the city on a more efficient road.



The road in the foreground connects to the regional highway to the right, and stretches around the most populous area of the city, towards the industrial area.



There is some ore and a regional train track to the right of the map, so I extended over there to set up a second industrial centre and some high-density residential zones. Once I have 16k residents I'll be able to have a facility to clean sewage water, so that ugly purple smear will soon be cleared up. :)



A good transportation network is vital to a congestion-free city, so I have routes going through all the major areas and then linking back to the bus station, which is why so many people are there.



This is the dual carriageway leading to the eastern sector of industry where the ore is. The road network is vastly more efficient here...

I never played cities in motion 2, so I wouldn't know.

There are about a dozen starter maps, but w/ steam workshop, people are creating maps every day, so there isn't a shortage of them. I don't know if achievements are disables for user maps though.

If I remember correctly, there is a mod to re enable achievements while using mods.

Ah well that's handy -- achievements were turned off on my city even though my only mods were aesthetic things like football pitches.

edit: here it is in case anyone is wondering... it looks like 100k others are using it too.
