What is up with this game? I keep seeing that they screwed up the release so there about 20 different versions being pirated.

Well, that sucks. I physically own my game i.e. it is in my hands right now, and because of Origin I can't play it as I still have to download and activate it and technically it isn't out until tomorrow.

I'm starting to get this whole 'EA sucks' thing.

Well, played from about 9am straight until about 2pm without a single issue. Made a few cities, had them working together for residents, businesses and industry. Some oil drilling and trading thrown in there. Then all of a sudden the servers just stopped working, and every server now is 'busy'

I somehow was allowed to continue playing, but since all saves are cloud based and not on your HDD I have no idea when my city saved or what state it's in. I can't be bothered waiting to connect again.

New Canton is a pretty damn nice City though Cool

I'm having to stop building stuff... keep running out of money.

My cities on a river, but it's not what I thought it'd look like after a while. It's cool how the city grows. My first apartment buildings are going up!

I'll be on later for some region play if you're up for it!

Can't, got Sebring duties until 2am Razz

I'll be on tomorrow, just had a quick 30 mins but Europe West 4 which I had 3 cities on has been inaccessible, so played on Europe East 6 (I think) and started an ore Mining Industry town. I love it, my gripe is that the city sizes are just too damn small.

It was all going so well, population growing, city expanding into the bay, commercial sector booming, then a sh*tstorm of crime came my way...

Well, I can honestly say I've had no server issues thus far.

Mostly because I'm using Oceanic 2 Razz I also didn't realise that using a different server means you have to start again!

Still though, my soon to be abandoned city had a good run. Some tall buildings are starting to go up, and I completed a streetcar line around the city (more Manchester style, with few on-road sections, and made up of stand alone linked sections Wink )

I've got 6gb of RAM, and an nvidia geforce GT 640M, and it runs really well on high settings, and it looks gorgeous, especially considering my laptop's an ultrabook!

My laptop isn't the highest spec, but it's in the mid to high range, and I run pretty graphics intensive software like Solidworks on it a lot.

I've seen it being played on reddit with some low spec machines and it's not pretty, but it looks functional. it's designed to be very pretty on high end machines, but also very playable on low end ones.

Well, I though it would be busy today and I haven't been able to get onto either of the two servers I've beee playing on. Can't be bothered with the tutorial and starting a new city on it's own again. Will just wait until Europe West 4 is back online. Silly online only server games.

So let me get this straight,

If I buy Sim city from the shop (43 quid at game, I can tell you exactly where to stick your game), I wont be able to play it offline?

Nope, and even if you physically own it you can't play it until you unlock it via EA.

Was working fine all night after the hiccup the afternoon. I'm on Europe West 4, my region is pretty full though. We could start TORA one? I live developing my current cities though, however I have a huge homeless problem in one of them.

The game plots are just far too small Sad
