Mine was approved.
I contacted EA to let them know what I did (so I don't get banned). They thought I was complaining, let me keep the discount AND sent me a 15% off code.

EA is in the good book of Doug

What I've noticed is you really need to plan well. Can't just place roads however you want because instead of choosing the density you want it is based off of the roads you built.

I'm taking my sweet time with my first city (and i only get about an hour at a time) to get this idea down.

hmm, I didn't get it instantly. Maybe to Canada it's quicker.

What does the other one look like? (XX) I'd like an invite to that region as well - username is sting004.

Invite me on that one. Someone else will have to invite to the original, since I made the mistake of abandoning a city without realizing I would lose access to the region.
I'm in the XX HFBoards NA East 1 (I think that means I can invite?) - you guys just need to get on NA East 1 - I added you sting, IDK your user ID Alex.

Also can anyone give me tips on how to get those shiny apartment buildings/stores? I always get stuck with the crappy ones (which I assume is an upgrade below).

****ing stupid having one regional access to a highway. My trading shipments are essentially stuck in an endless traffic jam and my income went from 200K down to 1K.

I'll probably wait on buying this for a bit, but from the looks of it will definitely be a game I'll get down the road. My concern is whether or not my computer will be able to run it effectively. Everything seems up to snuff aside from my video card which apparently doesn't have the required amount of dedicated ram. Will that be a huge issue if I play on the lowest graphic settings?

I thought they were supposed to speak English.

That might be a huge sigh of relief

Do we still need to use trade depots when we have a trade port?
