    SimCity

    So we have a new SimCity game after years of waiting and its great... mostly.


    The game has rave reviews and is very fun but the launch has been a mess. You have to be online to play (form of DRM) and well the servers keep crashing, millions cant even play in single player. I got in... im playing on an Asian server

    The game is now based around a region system, lots of smaller interconnected cities, you can share resources (like power) and services like Police just like real life towns, this is cool but the city size is now smaller than previous games.

    Some pics:




    My region






    Two "feeder" cities that only excist to provide my main city with power and resources.



    This is my main site, its cool, but well space is limited which is pretty annoying

    So SimCity, good game (if management is your thing) which I highly recommend but...give it a week


    Is anyone else playing?

    Re: SimCity

    I'm playing too. I got it on launch took until Saturday for the inital server bugs to go away. I have a couple cities. I just started a new city last night using my new tactic for any new city I make from now on. I call it the 3 steps to success:
    Step 1: Start a new city but keep it small and basic but not overly small. 1 main road and a couple shorter roads should be plenty.
    Step 2: Zone all 3 zones (Commercial, Residential, Industrial) and give them everything they need to live. Power (windmill), water (water tower), fire department, hospital and police.
    Step 3: Leave the game running max speed and go to bed.

    I woke up this morning with 688,000 the entire city was in shambles do to crime but I will bulldoze everything and start over.
