How many cities will I burn...

I have been playing Cities: skylines again, after a long break. I actually only started playing after suggesting it in one of the games threads here.

However, by playing it Ireally mean I have put in a decent bit of time, and have nothing to show for it yet.

Some reason I have invented a version of a hardmode that exists only in my head, I want to get the perfect initial of a city layout built with the starting funds, before I turn it on at all. But I keep screwing up stupid little things I only notice after I start it up and play for a bit., Started the alpha subdivision a bit to close to the interstate to allow me to put the eventually roundabout in, put the sewage outlet on the wrong side of the river, somehow made on street at an 85 degree angle to another one, went one block too many with my housing zone so the school won't fit etc.

I have trashed about 20 cities in the past month.

Thank you for reminding me that I own this game but never played it.

I've finally realized that setting up massive infrastructure early just ends the game before it starts, with too much money being used for upkeep before the tax base catches up. I'm also horribly impatient and terrible at planning long-term, so I kinda suck donkey balls at any city building game, even though I really enjoy them.

I generally prefer to play with a lot of mods in a sort of "sandbox mode"
