I feel like this is a stupid question but how do you restart a city? Sometimes i feel like i messed up and want to just start over in the same city, but can't figure out how to do it.

they've added a lot more servers and i've been able to play for about 30 hours over the past 3 days or so. i still get a short disconnect here and there but overall i've had no problems. I heard europe have had no problems at all

Is there an autosave feature or unless you manually save and you disconnect you lose everything? I loved SimCity as a kid and would like to try this out after finals next week, but I have been holding out until they get the servers perfect.

there's no autosave, everything is saved on the server like an MMO. If you get disconnected you lose all the progress you've made. Yes is sucks but hasn't happened enough to me to get annoyed by it. It'll tell you when it gets disconnected and it'll tell you when it reconects. You can keep playing while it's disconnected and wait for it to reconnect or just stop playing so that you dont waste time :)

I agree with everything. I also have problems with industry saying they dont have skilled workers when my entire population is highly educated. having industry leave kills income.

Also residents complain about no parks when there's one right next to them.

and finally, a comercial building says this: "what makes me happy: lots of shppers, what makes me unhappy: no shoppers". literally the same building

there's a bunch of other bugs that i hope they fix because i actually really like the game

In one of my cities I had a population of about 30k. Without really doing anything it went down to about 15k in a few minutes and I have no idea why. Overall happiness and approval rating is increasing and residential demand is full. I dont get it. I increased my land value and saw a few high rises pop up and my population went back up to 20k. My city is a lot denser now and I have about 30k people, about as much as I had without any high rises. Any ideas?

ah thanks. i added a couple of those wellness vans earlier but didn't notice a difference in germ levels.

I seem to have this germ issue that my sims really hate and even though i have adequate hospital coverage the germs aren't going away. I still haven't been able to figure out how to get rid of all these germs. Any help?

I used to play this game a lot but I haven't played for probably about a year (since before that one big patch that changed the game, 1.4 i think). I was thinking about coming back to it but i was wondering how it was doing? Is there still plenty of activity? is the game more balanced at all (pvp builds)? Is there less lag? (lag was a big reason why i stopped)

A friend and I have been playing Battlefield 3 for what feels like too long. We want a new game especially something that is slower paced and more tactical. This game seems like it is what we're looking for but I've been reading mixed reviews. What do you guys think? Would a couple of friends that want to play a slow paced tactical shooter that requires team work and communication enjoy this?
