To the developer
Hi, are you planning to fix the errors in this game? I havn't bought it yet. You have no sticky thread to fix errors and you always posting: "As soon as you experience major slowdowns with your city, please save your city then quit the game (go back to the main menu) and reload your city." and not offering a future fix lead me to believe there will be no further patches or fixes. Is this correct? Also reading one of your fixes was to play in windowed mode?

They aren't fixing anything, they have the peoples money for the most part.

Thanks for feedback everyone. I decided to buy the game on sale and looked through the forums for tips on the perfomance and found that editing a file would resolve any potential issues (i think your posts helped at one stage The doctor, thanks). I've had no major issues so i'm happy with the game, I would reccomend it. So ultimatly this was people on the forum over stating their problems that resulted in this post.

go to xlnation.net there you will find hundreds of mods and a very large community of people who actually play the game

here you will only find trolls/griefers/simcity fanbots and parrots who repeat the same misinformation they read and hear about ;)

simtropolis.com as well.

You will want
1) cameramod http://xlnation.net/xlex/modding_index (enter camera on the left)
2) wasd moves camera (on the same results page as above)
3) Realistic Hiway Mod on that site.

Then there's "NEXL" but it adds A LOT of crap to the game. trolleys, trams, ferries etc etc. It's seriously a ridiculous mod.

I don’t think this game made them that rich since it broke them down :p and now other publisher just got the rights, but the case is that the game will not be fixed (at least by the publisher and the original devs work not for them).

This game made them plenty rich.

The game was bought outright. no licensing, no rights retained. The whole hog. That usually means they got it for a bargain basement price.

If they paid $10m for it, that's 500k copies at $20 each just to break even and without infrastructural costs. It's been 3 years and there's been ZERO infrastructural. Ocassional development for a GOTY edition with some new stuff that honestly would take very little time and money.

They've made plenty off this game and have no intention of making it better.

Of course they bought it to do business, why else they are going to buy the license?

That doesn’t meant they plan to fix it without the original devs. and like you told they are earning money when patching will be costly and who knows if in the long run will be a good investment.


SIDE NOTE: the header of this thread says to the DEVELOPER, and the developers are not responsible of this game anymore, should be to the PUBLISHER.

the game is great! Some people will have problems if they are using crappy machines but any good compuiter that plays games well will be fine. SOooo much better than Sim City its not even close.

Exactly, i have a $600 computer that wasn't custom built from retail and it runs this game fine, yes it is on minimum graphics but it doesn't have those problems people are say they are having. If you have it on high graphics and you are having problems, turn down the settings.

The problems are not immediate. The game is fun, and it's worth a certain amount of money, sure.

But if you have a lengthy play-session, the game will slow down and have graphic artifacts. It's been like that for 2+ years.

Most developers would fix it by releasing a "remade from the ground up" version that's more effecient and slicker interface. That's not gonna happen here, and that's what ppl are ♥♥♥♥♥♥ about.

In all the complain threads I've seen, I don't think anyone ever said that it wasn't fun.
