Milestones

From Cities: Skylines Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This article is considered accurate for the current version of the game.

As a city grows, new population milestones will arise that unlock new services, buildings, zones, and areas for the city as well as giving extra cash.

  • New services allow you to add new services to your city. When you unlock a new service, you are also given access to a basic building of that type. At later milestones you can unlock new buildings for those services. Usually new buildings provide you with more effective means of managing your city.
  • New zones include higher density residential and commercial zones and office zones. Zoning Specializations can alter the types of buildings in a zone.
  • Unique buildings include various significant buildings, each with separate unlocking requirements and benefits. Monuments are unlocked at the last milestone.
  • When a new area is unlocked, you can choose to buy one of the adjacent areas in the area view to expand your city. Some of the areas can have water areas, highways, and/or natural resources. You can have a total of nine areas unlocked by the end of the game, but this could be increased to a total of 25 areas or even 81 areas with Steam Workshop modifications.

List of milestones[edit]

The population requirement to reach a milestone varies and appears to depend on the map selected, most likely based on how much of the map is suitable for building. The exact formula is currently unknown.
