Hi, I''ve been considering trying to write a small simcity clone, and was wondering if anyone knows of any guides or tutorials for this kind thing? I''m more interested in the actual AI/Logic, rather than the actual visualisation of the city. I''ve a few ideas of how it could be done, but was hoping there might be some resources to guide me in the right direction... Anyway, if anyone knows of anything i''d be glad to hear about it. Cheers, David.

My first thought was to recommend you go to Simtropolis.com and check out their mod section for SimCity 4. There are quite a few details of the inner workings scattered all over there, in the forums, articles, and such. Heck, even manuals and strategy guides for all versions of the game might go into enough detail to get an idea of how to design at least some components of the game. GameFAQs.com should have a nice list of such guides.
