We are Colossal Order & Paradox Interactive, the developers and publishers of the upcoming hardcore city builder game Cities: Skylines -- AMA http://www.topiama.com/r/2943/we-are-colossal-order-paradox-interactive-the Hello Reddit!

We are the developers and publishers of an upcoming city builder game called Cities: Skylines, which was recently announced at Gamescom 2014. You can see our reveal trailer here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxfeBpagvQw) for a quick look at what we're talking about today. Our aim was to make a hardcore, no-nonsense city builder - big cities, modding, offline play (we still can't believe that's a feature that needs to be stated) and much more. We're huge management nerds and have been talking about making a proper city builder for years. We're really happy we finally got to do it.

To give you the best possible chance to get a proper answer to your questions, we've gathered several team members from different areas and responsibilities. With no further ado, here's who's up for interrogation:

Mariina Hallikainen - Colossal Order - co_martsu Colossal CEO, in charge of everything and constantly suggesting pink stuff to be added to the games

Karoliina Korppoo - Colossal Order - KaroliinaK Lead designer working on Cities: Skylines. Constantly saying NO to pink things.

Shams - Paradox Interactive - pdx_shams - @shamsjorjani

Head of the Unicorn division - in charge of the game portfolio at Paradox - finds, signs and designs new games.

Jacob Munthe - Paradox Interactive - JMunthe Brand Manager, in charge of the Cities games Paradox Interactive Cities and general strategy game nerdlord.

Feel free to direct your question to a specific person, otherwise you'll get a reply from whomever feels most relevant.

So ask away about the game, us, Colossal Order, Paradox Interactive, PC gaming, regular gaming, non-regular gaming, the industry as a whole or whatever!

Want to hear more about Cities: Skylines? Check out our webpage and sign up for the newsletter (https://www.paradoxplaza.com/cities-skylines) and, for further discussion, join us on the forums! (http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?859-Cities-Skylines)

Proofz: https://twitter.com/ShamsJorjani/status/502166036964466688

Edit: 23:55 CET - sleepy time now. But we'll be back first thing tomorrow to continue with the questions - so keep them coming. Thanks for all the stuff so far!

Edit #2: 09:14 CET - we're back in the office. We'll keep answering questions throughout the day.

AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2934/i-am-dr-sanjay-gupta-neurosurgeon-and-chief Hey there redditors -- Sanjay here! I’m CNN’s chief medical correspondent, a practicing neurosurgeon, husband and father to 3 beautiful girls. This spring I had a chance to put on one of those space suits and see some of the bravest doctors I’ve ever met, treating Ebola patients in Conakry, Guinea. I’ve walked through the jungle not far from where this disease first emerged, and I’m on staff at Emory University Hospital where two Americans with Ebola are recuperating right now. I’ll be answering your questions. To confirm, I’m Dr_SanjayGupta on Reddit and @DrSanjayGupta on Twitter.

Hi my name is Matthew Weiner, you may know me from MAD MEN and THE SOPRANOS, my latest project is a film called ARE YOU HERE, ask me anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/2937/hi-my-name-is-matthew-weiner-you-may-know-me-from Matthew Weiner here, I have a film ARE YOU HERE coming out this Friday. I wrote the script 9 years ago so obviously this didn't happen over night, the movie is about a lot of issues that are close to my heart and i knew i couldn't give up on it. ARE YOU HERE is about things that were on my mind: friendship, drugs, medication, family and our relationship with nature-- but the most important thing to me was to explore these four flawed characters and how lucky we are to not be alone.

I am really excited to be here and answer your questions about any of my projects, your projects, the creative process, and the weird state of the world today.

Check out the ARE YOU HERE trailer

https://twitter.com/Millennium_Ent/status/501832267740639232

Thank you all so much for your thoughtful questions and incredible compliments. I wish I had time to answer all of them. Hopefully next time. Go see ARE YOU HERE this weekend, I would love to hear what you think. And to all you aspiring writers out there, the best advice I ever got was: keep writing, that means you have to find a way to make rejection feed your dreams. And dont forget to live or you will have nothing to write about. Good luck!

IamA 94 year old WWII Veteran who was conscripted by the Soviets, captured by the Germans, and emigrated to the United States, AMA. http://www.topiama.com/r/2928/iama-94-year-old-wwii-veteran-who-was-conscripted My name is Mouna, and I’m here today with my Azerbaijani grandfather, Michael Mirson (born in Armenia as Mikhail Mirsayef). Opa (German for grandfather) not only has multifaceted perspective on the war, but with communist life in the USSR, post-war life in Germany, and American immigrant life. His experiences are unimaginable to someone like me, who has has lead a markedly different young adult life, from the man who raised me. His story has been featured on Azerbaijani television, and he did an IAMA post 2 years ago. These experiences were extremely emotional and rewarding for him, and he couldn’t be happier to go at it again. So please, ask away! I will be helping Opa answer all of your questions for the next two days. He goes to bed quite early (7 or 8PM eastern time), and will need some rests during the day, but is eager to interact with you all!

Here are some of his key life events:

  • Born in 1920 (1922 on paper) on a prosperous Armenian family farm
  • Experienced the communist takeover of his farm at 10 years
  • Fled to Yerevan, Armenia for veterinary school
  • Was conscripted to the Soviet Army in 1941
  • Was injured by shrapnel and lost his finger in an explosion
  • Was captured by the Germans in 1942
  • Spent 3 months in a prison camp
  • Was kept alive by his German captors to tend their wounded horses
  • Marched to the American lines when the war ended (he was in Austria)
  • Worked in a UNRA refugee camp
  • Married and had two children in Germany
  • Emigrated to the United States and had one more child
  • Worked various jobs incuding a farmer, factory worker, and diner owner
  • Finally was able to reunite with Azerbaijani family in the 70’s (they presumed him dead)
  • Raised 2 of his 3 grandchildren (who lost their own father), and now has 3 great grandchildren!
  • In his old age he has had a few health issues like a stroke, prostate cancer, and multiple joint replacement surgeries, but still walks 1 hour/day!

This is a photo of Opa in the Army:

Time for some lunch! We'll be back in a bit! Thanks everyone!

We're back in action, until Opa needs a rest!

Opa needs a rest. We'll do another quick segment after dinner, and we can come back tomorrow!

IamA Toxinologist (a dude that works with venomous animals) at james cook univeristy in australia AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2929/iama-toxinologist-a-dude-that-works-with-venomous My short bio: I'm affectionately known as “Jelly Dude from Nemo land” and havebeen researching and working with venomous and dangerous animals for over 20 yrs . My real passion (at least at the moment) is “Why do animals have venom?” Based in Cairns, in Northern Australia, an area that has an over abundance of venomous animals,(read heaps of thinsg that can kill you!) I'm sort of uniquely placed to study the ecology and biology of Australia’s venomous species. I teach at all levels at James Cook University, one of the top 5% of research universities in the world with my favourite subject being “Venomous Australian Animals”, a subject designed and taught by myself (with a little help from the odd friend!).

I have been successfully involved in programs designed to decrease the envenomings of humans by jellyfish, namely in Australia, Timor Leste (for the United Nations), Thailand and Hawaii. My research has been directly responsible for changes in the present treatment protocol for Australian jellyfish stings. I also established and am the director of the Tropical Australian Venom Research Unit (TASRU) which is now recognised as one of the premier research groups in the world for the studies of the ecology and biology of box jellyfish and research into medical treatment of box jellyfish envenomings.

My Proof: http://imgur.com/Tp9P9Db

ok, sorry folks, I have to go take a breather :-) have a grant proposal due in like 3 days and I so need to work on it, unless some one wants to make a donation to my research :-) Having said that, I'll get back to the other questions later tonight or tomorrow morning. Thanks for the questions, its been fun keep smiling jellydude jamie.seymour@jcu.edu.au or

For six years I was an undercover investigator in factory farms http://www.topiama.com/r/2930/for-six-years-i-was-an-undercover-investigator-in My name’s T.J. Tumasse and from 2007 to 2013 I did 15 undercover investigations into some of the biggest factory farms in the U.S. I’ve seen it all – people stomping on turkeys, chickens stuffed in cages so small they can’t spread their wings, violations at a kosher slaughterhouse, pigs kept in cages so restrictive they couldn’t turn around for four months straight – you name it.

Most of my investigations were conducted for the animal protection non-profit Mercy For Animals, as well as other organizations, and many of them led to felony convictions for animal abuse and changes at the local, federal and corporate levels.

You can watch some of them here: Christensen pork farm in Minnesota, Turkey farm in North Carolina, Egg farm in Iowa (also MN and CO).

You can read some news coverage here: ABC Nightline News (egg farm), [Huffington Post](

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/14/butterball-turkey-abuse_n_2129646.html) (turkey farm), CBS (pig farm)

I just started telling my story to the animal welfare community, but I’m here to tell my story to the general public for the first time. I look forward to answering your questions!
