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.
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.
