Cities: Skylines quest to become the most detail city management simulator in existence continues with the announcement of the Cities: Skylines - Campus expansion, the eight squillionth DLC expansion. University life is the focal point for this DLC, as you probably guessed, providing three new area types aimed at students to plop down into your metropolis.

Trade School, Liberal Arts, and University district areas will be included in the expansion, increasing a city’s reputation by attracting students and using their Academic Works in order to unlock exclusive new buildings.

Soon enough your city will be filled with cockroach-infested dwellings and thousands of citizens living off noodles and Tesco sandwich deals. 

It’s not all books though, as Campus also introduces varsity sports such as American football, basketball, baseball, and track & field, with stadiums for each available to build. Colossal Order is really drilling down to the finer details here, including the ability to manage sports teams, hire coaches, and even customise your team’s jerseys.

Last but by no means least are five new maps to build on as well seven new city policies such as book fair, research grants, and for-profit education.

Cities: Skylines - Campus is coming to PC and consoles on May 21st, priced at $12.99.

Well chances are that it's 16 bit, but they have diviided it or used some equation to make it 16384 just like cash has to be multiplied by 100 to get the value.

Cities Skylines is probably the last remaining Paradox game that actually has expansions, all other GSG games have basically had free patch content packed into "expansions" for 15 euro each... especially EU4, 50% if not mor of the expansions are things that you could do in the text-files of the game, but wouldn't since it would be moddified and no achievements and multiplayer can be played...

Gog is having a sale for stellaris and its expansions, everything was 50%-75% off and the total came over 100$. Thats insane. Imagine buying all that without the discounts.

EU4 complete edition or whatever it's called costs 330 euro and I think now it's 345 euro with the latest expansion or so... unless some of them have gotten cheaper... the price has not gone lower since 2013 on anything EU4 releated, though I haven't looked at it for half a year now... -_-
Stellaris is absolutely crazy, it has crazy expensive ships and whatnot...

It's not the API that is the problem it's the vast amount of linear/sequential logic XD
Also EU4, SC2, IR, Viki2 and HoI will forever be slow with its textfile database and action/event system XD

The stellaris experience summed up: the devs release a broken patch, I wait for them to fix it and also wait for all the mods to get updated. Usually by the time the mods are updated there is already an other patch that supposedly fixes few things and breakes several others. Eventually the patches stop coming and we are left with a half broken game until the next dlc arrives and the cycle starts again.

Well Cities was developed by Colossal Order, maybe that's the biggest reason.

Agreed, you are most likely correct.
