Re: Sim City

Be careful. As excited as I am about the prospect of a Simcity 5, this is a reboot. Major gripes by old-timers are the online-only aspect, the small size of towns, not being able to select your zoning density, and other items. I'm still going to give it a chance, but this is not a continuation of Simcity 4.

Small size of towns?

You could select the zoning density? Was that in 4? I didn't play it much so I may have missed it.

Any gripes should be taken with a grain of salt right now. The game isn't even out yet. That being said, I am going to be paying attention to this game and hopefully, it will exceed my expectations.

The map is split into regions, which then have about 4 cities within each one. You can control your regions, but the maps are 64x64 instead of the old 128x128. Where as you used to be able to put low, medium, or high density wherever you want, the density is now based on the road it's connected to. Farms are gone, as are subways. I'm not saying that all of the changes are bad, but they leave me concerned, as Maxis has stated that these are permanent.

This is also the base game. Sim City 4 had an expansion pack, so i imagine with updates and expansion packs, we will acquire all of the content that we want.

I agree Vampy. I'm going to buy the game regardless of my concerns. But I don't want anyone to be confused as to this being Simcity 5.
