NIMBY/YIMBY (03/07/99)
NIMBY (Not in my backyard) and YIMBY (Yes in my backyard) effects are influenced by the presence of certain buildings. These effects determine the aura in that region. This measurement represents real life neighbourhoods where the areas with high land values are those that have a good view, are protected from crime, have little pollution, and so on. The slum areas are those that are at congested streets, near landfills and utility stuctures and the such. See below for a handy chart showing the local effects of certain structures and their radius of aura influence. View it, and print it out for reference.


The IMBY Chart

Remember NIMBY effects are negative and YIMBY effects are positive to calculating local aura.
