If I add any form of mass transit it gets consumed pretty quick, the city grows and then I'm still left with a huge car traffic issue, but I'm not complaining, I love trying to solve these types of issues smile.gif From about 90k to 170k was just me dealing with infrastructure fixes which is pretty great in my book.

I will say about the always online thing, near the end of my session my game crashed unexpectedly. The servers were very loaded yesterday so it had a wait time, I decided to just wait till this morning to log in and my city was saved and I didn't lose anything. +1 for always online.

That's sweet! Do you have pics?

And how do you feel about them not putting the Gateway Arch into the game?

I am looking for an organized region to build a city. Anyone have space on here?

I would like to build a Tourism/Casino City or a High Education/High Tech city.

Unless your REALLY wanting the German, French, British city sets, save $20 and just get Limited edition. Otherwise, each set cost $10 via Origin

Haven't been able to play yet but reading reviews on Amazon has been a riot.

Research nothing about the game then QQ when it requires persistent internet connection and Origin. Although I can't help but wonder how many are just downrating due to it being EA /shrug.

Are people experiencing problems on both the downloadable version and copy version? Or one or the other?

I got the hard copy version and have had nothing but problems, like a majority of others. Installed the game 4 separate times, with different end results. When I do manage to play, it lasts for about 5-10 minutes then gives me the "Simcity has stopped working" error along with the game crash.

My buddy got the downloadable version and hasn't had any problems at all.... redface.gif

Have you tried downloading it via origin instead of installing it from your disc?

Actually no I haven't, and honestly I didn't know that was an option. I'm sorta new to Origin and wondering if I'll regret it. I'll give it a try tonight.

Has anyone else had the same experience. Meaning , had the hard copy version (with complications) then tried to download it straight for Origin and get better results?
