Quote from: jamespetts on March 31, 2013, 11:18:44 AMIncidentally, I don't think that it works to say that good transport should lead to high density and poor transport to sprawl: it was transport provision that enabled sprawl in the first place (see the above link to "Metro-land"). The relationship should be much more complex than that, and should be an emergent property of an accurate simulation on the local level.
Quote from: Sarlock on March 31, 2013, 06:16:57 PMThere are certainly a lot more factors to consider than just availability of mass transit when an area becomes more dense. Without making the city simulation too complex, however, it may be one of the more readily available factors to use.Proximity to other similar dense buildings, proximity to jobs, shopping/amenities, among many other lesser influences, are all factors that are considered as well.The trick is to approximate most of these factors with a few simple calculations.
