Deleting a City

Postby galatei_tf » 05 September 2010, 16:33

Hi, does anyone know how to delete a City so that I can use the same name for the new one ?

I deleted my old city but can't create a new one with the same name, as it says it already exists.

Cheers

You can delete the cities, but not their names. So everytime when you are building a new city, you have to choose a new name for it.

Agree entirely.

Suspect that there's some nasty hacking workaround, but it doesn't seem to be in cities.cxl (the "master" file in the save games folder) so it would probably take some digging.

Probably not worth the effort before the new game comes out next month.

Well,
it works on my machine... have to exit and re-enter the game after deleting, though....

Also running into this problem. This is awful. My current suggestion is to place a 'space' after the name you wish to reuse.
