Do us a favor. Don't ever become a motivational speaker for people who propose new roads for City sets. LOL
City has pretty much sworn its allegiance to making police and explorers sets now. They do have the occasional fire sets that come out every three years and some civilian sets. But the two things that I have always known about City was.....THERE IS NO WHERE TO LIVE!!!!! THE JOB MARKET IS LOW!!!!!!
I have a theory for why City is doing this on purpose.
City is now crime ridden. Most of the citizens who were at one point, honest workers have turned to lives of crime robbing what's left of the banks (police sets) to have a little pocket change.
But then there are those more irate people who take matters to the next level by setting the places where they used to work and live on fire (fire sets).
You have others who have given up hope on life and the suicidal sailors sail out into the middle of the dangerous seas to their deaths, but then the coast guard has to get involved (coast guard sets).
Very many overreact and using inspiration from apocalypse based movies, built vehicles that were capable enough to take them to the four corners of the earth to find valuables that can either help boost the economy or make them enough money to get them out of the city before they become victims (the explorers sets).
Then there are the people who have sense and start their own businesses (the mega sets) to try to get themselves back on their feet.
You have people who are also homeless but don't commit crimes; instead living their lives as though nothing is wrong (the people packs).
However, you've got those who don't cope so well. So you have those people who convert their cars into vehicles that have to do with what they used to be before the economy tanked (great vehicles). For example, the guy in set 60150 used to work at a pizza parlor so he converted his van into a mobile pizzeria and the girl from 60183 used to fix rigs and her husband used to be a helicopter pilot. Thus why we have the heavy cargo transport.
The only three industries that are surviving are the emergency field and the railway industry (trains). But how does the city pay for these services if there are hardly any jobs and there is no where to live?
If you really look at it, City could actually be a metaphor for how things could go down if the economy were to tank.
This was actually a theory based off of this guy on YouTube named City Beautiful where he reviewed city sets. I just added to it.
