Lol don't kid yourself... SC4 was ridiculously lenient when it came to health/education/crime/utility services. I picked up SC4 again maybe 2 months ago and let my city sit there without even any water for YEARS (in game time obviously), with no penalty/loss of residents. You did need good education if you wanted high tech industry to start up, but that's about it. The time cycle in SC5 is much more different now. At max speed you're only flying through minutes rather than days like in SC4. Your revenue and expenses are earned and withdrawn hourly, so each decision you make puts a greater impact on your cash flow than it did in SC4.
Whenever I played, all the high wealth residents would leave if the water system died. You also don't get a good number of high wealth people if the education and health are poor, as the older people and more educated people tend to be of higher wealth.

From what I have seen in videos, I would rather play SC4 over SC5. I might buy SC5 if the price drops below £25 and they sort the server issues out.
Having played both SC (It's specifically not SC5 or SC2013, it's a reboot more than a sequel) is a lot harder than SC4. Yes, you can "fill" a city with low density quickly, but doing so and then having the infrastructure for the city to increase in density. Suddenly that massive garbage dump is actually a huge hindrance, it's not off in some remote corner anymore. Those oil wells? They're not dry and they're still making money, but that's huge portions of your city that people don't want to live in. Having a separate city
set up just to take care of different things is important. There's no more having a single city take care of low, medium, and high wealth residential and commercial. You can set up an entire city without a single residential zone, and you're not really doing it wrong if you do (A pure industry/mining/drilling city just rolls in the simoleans) so long as you've got another city with a lack of jobs. Get an Arcology up and you can easily have a pure industry city.

The way the game is set up is that the massive cities of SC4 are functionally equivalent to regions in this game, I'll readily admit the server issues are impacting this, but in my experience keeping the city functioning just requires watching for the connectivity problem and pressing pause for 30s, found it was always a decent time to upgrade roads thumb.gif

Lots of reasons. It helps with initial download clog and they probably have centralized server systems that everybody has to connect to. If they only have one server group for creating logins and what not then limiting the number of people that will be doing that is a plus. It also gives them a chance to fix some issues that may come up before going online in other areas so that those other areas end up with less bugs and down time. There are countless more possible reasons, but I think you get the point.

Kind of like turning up the precision in planetary body simulators kills even the strongest computers, a 16-city region attempting to run without cloud computing assistance is going to be unplayable. The game runs flawlessly, but writing down what someone is saying about theoretical quantum physics is far easier than giving that lecture yourself. Glassbox is actually impressively deep, it just hides most of it from you unless you want to see it.
If the game is cracked before 2014, it won't have region level play. ALL region-level interactions are on the server and most aren't even communicated to the client more than 20% of the time. Probably 40% of the game code is not contained in the client files, cracking that is nearly impossible, and a mock of the server is going to be functionally gimped.

If this is correct then a lot of the complaints are for nothing. I'd still like to see bigger individual cities and what not. Hopefully they built the game in a way that they can accomplish that simply. Like allowing for a bigger city size in regions that have less cities. All of that's just my personal preference though. I'll probably end up getting this as soon as most of the initial problems clear up and the price drops.

Why not try Simcity 4? It has great mod support too. Deluxe edition is $10 on steam.

They still have had a number of games hosted on Steam, like the War Z and Towns, which have been misrepresented by their creators. Valve should have a duty to prevent that from happening.

Where does the money go if they don't reach their goal? 100 percent of it to Charities, or does someone Pocket it?

As far as I know, you get it back and then everyone is sad.
