Music composed by Jerry Martin

Ah, some more wonderful music that builds layers upon layers as it adds more instruments: the track has a very appropriate name as a result. This is a great little tune to listen to as you watch all your newly marked out zones sprout construction sites.

I always struggled with the idea of building so many industrial zones in this game - it seemed to be too easy to build huge industrial estates and residential zones to provide the necessary labour, but my commercial zones would often lay bare. I'm not quite sure whether the commercial zones required some population, education or property value prerequisite (or maybe all three) but I always struggled to build huge skyscrapers.
