Bug report (minor)
One thing - when I attempted the plane tutorial and it asks you to lay the taxiway following the highlighted area it reports to steep of an angle. I manually levelled the terrain and it worked then. I had the same issue with the taxiway when laying that after building the plane factory.

The sound of clicking on buttons is a bit.. annoying. It has too much base I think (not a sound expert).

As for events - first of all, as a son of two doctors I'm really glad that pandemic is one of the events. I think others could be strikes - people stop working and make a demand (based on something that isn't provided), like "we want better (more) schools" or "we want alcohol" - that way we'd get more inside on what's wrong instead of the a bit vague "people are running away"

Other event could be an embargo

I am getting a lot of crashes to desktop when loading into a game. Happens on both existing and new saves as well as on random maps and the standard map. I have tried re-installing the game with no prevail. I have send the log file through the website.

Update: It appears to always get stuck on "initialising vehicle types"

I think I just encountered a bug - when I Alt-Tab (on a dual-monitor setup, game on one, Firefox on other) camera starts to spin around some point (and going down until ground level)
