Both times I have gotten in reach of 500K pop, some buggy code kills my game...game is as annoying as it is addicting.
Was up to 450k pop with long hd streets with buildings only on one side, bus and streetcar stations near factories, and minimal intersections so had no traffic problems... 100K bus riders, and 90K on streetcars...and then my streetcars start no longer coming out of the station, tried deleting every last road and station, and replacing twice...happened after one of the disasters.
They really need user saves for this buggy game.
I tried using an army of buses and stops....made a vid of army...but couldnt get past 443K after getting knocked back.. to less than 400K initially, traffic just killed everything.
made a 2 min. vid...blurry for first 20 seconds for some reason......had a parade of buses...got to be funny, but no funnier than phantom street cars
