I have to admit I don't exactly understand what the point of the link above is, but I know it looks pretty cool, especially the video (until the end when all the cars start spiraling on the screen for no apparent reason.) As near as I understand this, this is a program that takes a bit of land and produces organic and organized urban growth and planning using mathmatical calculations. In their example, it's using wierd circular roads, but the way it's rendered is pretty cool. I hope that future versions of Simcity look this great. I'm tired of roads that can only run due east-west or due north-south.
