So I was building my city.. up to about 12,000 population, went to look at the region and got booted to the main menu. I bet none of my progress saved.

I got booted twice due to the server crashing. It managed to save somehow.

I have it installed but I'm waiting for the Lightning game to end before I dive in.

From the sounds of it they didn't learn from Diablo's server issues.

I'm pretty sure there were some server shenanigans going on, I wasn't able to delete my region, it wasn't saving my city/region and it kept crashing seemingly when it was going to sync/save my game to the cloud.

Something else I noticed, when creating a game and claiming a city it was listing the mayor as "~mayorname~" rather than my actual Origin ID. Clicking off of the city would show it as being unclaimed but it would not let me re-claim it and I was essentially locked out of that city.

Hopefully the server stuff gets sorted out soon, I heard through some hearsay at the office that they were working on it throughout the day and trying to get additional servers online.

My biggest upset is that due to the region gameplay, you can't build real life cities to scale (like Toronto or Montreal). And what about mods? Don't think we'll be able to have those either.

Apparently Maxis has said they will be supporting mods in future updates, but in what capacity they didn't say. I'm guessing (I don't have any inside info, pure guess) it will be much the same as The Sims mods, mostly cosmetic stuff that is pushed through their game/launcher. I wouldn't expect too many major mods that add features or gameplay mechanics but who knows?

But then that would go against their cosmetic DLC maneuver. They're selling "sets" at a premium. I might see them release city sets with iconic buildings and landmarks for $$$. Anyways all this is further down the line.

I'm at the "confirm purchase" window in Origin. About to cave. The reason I'm thinking of buying it now, is that having read reviews, I feel like because of the small city sizes, players will eventually lose interest after a few different playthrus. With no terraform, I can see that happening even sooner. I wanna get in on the action before you all quit the game lol.

Add me as a friend on Origin: JackBourdain

I'll go thru this thread and add everyone else.
