let me tell you, simulation wise this is stunning.

That's not the idea I get from multiple reviews (in progress) that I've read. Apparently everything works fine up to 150K or so, and then it either goes into a stupid "People leave, economy goes down, space opens up, people come in, economy goes back up, people get mad, people leave, economy goes down" loop, or it just starts randomly making things not work (casinos completely stop bringing in money; sewage plants stop working altogether), reporting problems that aren't there (You have no water! You have no sewage capacity! when in fact said person has both plenty)...

And then there's the brilliant firetrucks. 3 houses are on fire on the same road. 3 fire trucks are dispatched. The first firetruck stops at the first house on fire. Firetrucks 2 and 3 are now stuck behind firetruck 1 and can't get to houses 2 and 3, which burn down.

Feel free to call it whatever you want, but I wouldn't call that "stunning."

I'd call it "broken."


Ok that is true. But I can't judge yet whether that's bug or simply because the online servers lag behind by an hour. (that's whats causing these weird resource lack popups).

That with the firetrucks is annoying, but instead of 1 big.. you can always build 3 small stations ;p Anyhow, I meant the depth of the simulation.. tis true there are still some annoying bugs. But no point mentioning them when nobody can play anyway.
