SimCity 2.0 Plans

The EA Forums have an update from SimCity senior producer Kip Katsarelis with word on plans for an upcoming version 2.0 patch for the city building game (thanks IncGamers). Here's a chunk:

We've been heads down addressing the key issues we’re seeing reported from our community. This includes city rollbacks, lost progress, and the return of features like Cheetah Speed and Leaderboards. Like you, we want all of these resolved ASAP, which is why they are the top priorities in our studio. Matter of fact, we have all of these in a QA environment, giving them a thorough test before we release them back to you, the fans.

On top of this, we’re also working on a number of bug fixes and other overall improvements that we’re planning to include in future Updates. Just last week we released two Updates 1.7 and 1.8, which included traffic fixes and other general improvements. For the future, in Update 2.0, we’ll be addressing the Recycling Center bug, fixing the fire engine clumping, improving the efficiency of Street Cars, and increasing the radius of river water. We’re also fixing the tuning on Casinos and are making them more profitable. These are just a handful of the substantial changes coming in Update 2.0.

Keep in mind, if you don’t see a particular fix present in an Update, this doesn't mean we’re not working on it, or we’re not aware of it. Our team is constantly getting reports about the top issues being raised and this is helping us prioritize what we need to address. There are some issues that are more challenging and will take more time. If you have feedback, please visit our forums. In the meantime, we’ll continue to address the top issues in our updates. We’ll keep working while you’re playing.

I actually wonder if the starving of cities for labor or whatever is partially to do with the numbers fudging. You know, like they do something stupid like calculate how many jobs are needed in the city based on the fudged population number and not the actual agent number. So you have 200,000 (fudged) population, and the sim engine goes "okay, we need 180,000 workers to fill all the jobs", even though there's only 20,000 agents in the city. It allocates as many agents as it can and starts screaming that you need more workers.

It sounds like the kind of stupid fucking thing that would be done on a game that's this badly handled.
LOL! Yep, I could see that happening too with all the incompetence thats been shown so far.
