Well I built the stupid skinny city of Saudi Arabia in Cities: Skylines

we have our first look at line city a couple of weeks ago, which is Saudi Arabia’s bizarre plan to spend billions of dollars to build a weird sci-fi city along the Red Sea. According to the two-minute video above, the city will be a large straight line stretching 170 kilometers across the desert. The entire city will be the height of a skyscraper, only 200 meters wide and completely covered in mirrors. Because reasons? Presumably, there are reasons.

While I think Line City would be a good place for a futuristic zombie movie where people have to fight their way from one end of the city to the other (by all means make this movie), it seems like a terrible place to host to 9 million people. people without first asking them if they want to live in a strange city of skinny skyscrapers with mirrors. Not to mention all the people who will be displaced or worse just to build the silly thing.
