Cities XL 2012 is just so poorly optimized. Cannot believe a game released in 2011 is still not able to utilize 2 cores....

You never played Simcity 4 so stop pretending as many will tell you in your face that they have ZERO problems playing Simcity 4, including myself, on modern machine. Here are a few testimonials on this thread:

Back ontopic, do want. However I'll be dissapointed if they don't allow user-created content to be added in like you could in SC4

I'll wait and see, this is EA we're talking about after all. If it requires origin, is a blatant console crippled port, completely locked down with no modding at all and a bare bones game with day one dlc for sale I'll give it a pass.

And you all realize maxis is owned by EA now right? They arn't really maxis anymore, just a zombie company controlled by EA with a Maxis label slapped on top.

Yeah it runs fine on my system, and the systems I've had before it. Starts to chug a little bit with a huge city (> 1,000,000 people or so) but I think that's just the game engine being limited, not PC issues.

Maxis was owned by EA back when SC4 was released as well, if I remember right, and it still turned out pretty good. We can always hope.

Why do you have to be so hostile? The game does indeed have issues for some people on modern hardware. My old setup was a Core 2 Duo E8600 @4.0GHz with either a GeForce 8800 GT or a GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and while it "ran" fine for the short time I tried it, the 2D "overlay" stuff (the city itself essentially) would render slow, like it was like slow to draw/update or something when scrolling or zooming. It didn't perform where it should have. It felt worse than my Pentium 4 2.8GHz and GeForce 6800 GS combo. Some guess that multiple cores and/or modern GPUs/video drivers don't like the game and/or 2.5D engine. If you check the Steam forums, there's all sorts of suggestions; I think stuff ranging from turning down shadows to shortcut modifiers to limit the game to one core and so on. If it worked for you, good, but there's no need to be hostile because the game is known to have issues in some cases.

Sim City 4 is probably my most played game ever and I have had absolutely no problems with it.

Gotta agree with this. I didn't play SC4 a ton but I do remember there being issues on my sig rig. It wasn't unplayable or anything like that though.

Maybe it seemed a bit direct, Simcity 4 is a great game, I do not enjoy reading misinformation which tends to spread like wildfire here and easily turns into a catch phrase.
