PopBalanceMod

Author: Kundun

This mod changes the population capacity of buildings to more accurately represent their building size. It decreases the population capacity of low density building while it increases the population capacity of high density buildings and offices.

No longer will there be houses with 7 households and skyscrapers with only 20 workplaces. Be warned though, this mod makes things more difficult. A higher population means that that you need to handle much more traffic.

This mod also makes some balance changes regarding water/electricity consumption, garbage accumulation and income of different buildings. It should make early game somewhat easier while making the game later on more difficult.

***Warning***
This mod is best used for new games only. The mod directly updates workplacecount of offices/industry/commercial. New population numbers for residential zones are only applied when new buildings are build/upgraded.

Any feedback is appreciated!
