Stone Librande walked through the design of Sim City for his GDC 2013 talk. Those guys slaughtered a lot of trees despite his focus on a one page design document to lead the process.

He doesn't talk much about the tuning / play-testing, and unfortunately Chris Schmidt and Ross Treyz haven't talked about it yet.

[permalink] Are you playing the new one? I played 30-40 hours of it, but then stopped. SC4 ftw - Ryan.

[permalink] I don't actually play SC; I just follow its development and players' ideas. It's cool to see people hacking for fun on souped-up versions of Jay Forrester's Urban Dynamics.
