Blue, do we need a kickstarter?

I'd kick a few bucks that way if I could get the ads disabled for my account. Or a year free of ads site wide for everyone similar to what PA did.

I've thought about that programmer guy who talked on Reddit before about how the city size limitation must be due to all the data they have to store in memory... But it seems they don't store shit in memory for agents, if all they're doing is playing musical chairs.

He was assuming that the ppl on this game were competent, and that everything they've told the public wasn't just made up.

Given how little else they have going on in this game, I'm going to guess that a lot of their performance limitations have to do with the hundreds or thousands of cars and pedestrians that are clickable, have names, and run in circles eating up CPU cycles because they were born stupid.
Someone already pointed out that Tropico 1 had this too. With thousands of people living and working on an island. This game was released more than 12 years ago. We had the CityBuilder series from Impressions. With individual citizens.

THERE ARE NO RESSOURCE HUNGRY OPERATIONS IN SIM SHITTY!! Wise up already
Or maybe every single thing is resource intensive because they are just that good and they try that hard at being that incompetent.

I dunno, but every single day there's another nutty simcity story I lean more away from clueless and more towards incompetent.

I went ahead and got anno 2070.

BTW, the complete game pack isn't, it doesn't appear to give you the deluxe version of the game, and there's no deluxe upgrade pack like some games do (though it does have everything else, so if you dont care about the bits that the deluxe adds, getting the complete game pack should be fine)
Also the complete DLC pack isn't, it doesn't include deep ocean.

So, to get everything add 3 things to cart.
1)Deluxe Anno 2070
2)Complete dlc pack
3)Deep Ocean dlc.
Total should be $36.67

Seems to include Deep Ocean now bro.
Screeny from my Steam

EDIT: Oh nm I see what you're saying the complete pack doesn't have deluxe.
Yeah the complete game pack does contain deep ocean, but the complete DLC pack doesn't. Which is necessary to get as one of the 3 items if you want everything since it doesn't include the deluxe version (as you saw).

Someone has probably mentioned this already, but Ubisoft is sticking ti EA with Anno 2070 on sale on Steam this weekend. Allthumbsup

EDIT: NKD stole my thunder!
And I stole it before he did. I also told how to get the complete anno 2070 (and no, the complete pack does NOT have it all)

Looks like it has it all to me. What is missing?
As I said way back in post 95

Props to ubi, if they timed their Anno 2070 sale for now.
Just because of simcity being out, it has increased my desire to again play a city simulation. Despite that I have zero intention of playing this simcity catastrophe, and certainly wouldn't pay EA more than a couple bucks for it, and maybe not even then.
But I went ahead and got anno 2070.

I miss the good ole EA days. Back when they were a decent company. Back when they made games like Skate or Die (or Ski or Die), Hard Hat Mack, MULE, Populous, etc.

What bothers me about Creston's short list here is it's not even accurate or legitimate.
Feel free to make a legitimate accurate complete long list.

I guess I'm ok with this as long as its not mandatory.

Also, as long as they don't decide to focus only on development of subscription services. There's still a lot of promised features and work to be done on minecraft.

LOL, at least diablo 3 has hacking protections. Blizzard knew better than to trust client.

Sounds like EA threw a bunch of new employees at this project. Or everyone involved is just incompetent. I'd believe either one from EA.

When everyone is blasting EA for lying, let's not let Maxis off the hook here. They deserve just as much indignation for this mess of a game release and it pains me to see them potentially getting away from this without much damage to their reputation.
There is no difference between EA and Maxis. Its the same company. EA only kept the Maxis name for brand reasons.

That may be strictly true but I doubt they disintegrated legacy Maxis and replaced them with EA workers. This is mostly the original Maxis except now they're just a piece of another organization, no?
No, the original maxis has been long long long gone. Basically over 10 years of The Sims, maxis became EA. The founders of Maxis were Will Wright and Jeff Braun, they aren't at EA anymore.
Let me put it this way, do you think the original people who put out Simcity series and sim Ant and the others, would have stood for putting out this garbage?

This is not nearly the first time EA has decimated a studio they've bought out. Is origin around anymore? Bullfrog? Or any of the others? The only reason EA has even bothered to keep the separate Maxis name (unlike most others they bought out) is because The Sims became incredibly huge.

Not that long ago EA announced they were reducing their brand labels to 4:
EA GAMES LABEL
EA SPORTS LABEL
EA MAXIS LABEL
EA BIOWARE LABEL

I can understand buying this game because the DRM doesn't scare you and you just want to play the damn thing.

I may have eventually bought this game when everything was ironed out, but if this is true, it's going too far. I refuse to support a company who blatantly lies.
This is FAR FAR from the first time EA has done that.

All I'm really saying is that it's not so lightweight that it's 100K people spread over 23 CPUs. It has to be at least a bit heavier weight than that.
Why?
It wouldn't surprise me if that was the case, if they are doing a minimal amount on the server, just enough to get away with saying they have to have it always online.
