Interesting comment from a maxis insider today, apparently offline shouldn't be to hard for them to do as most of the stuff is already handled my the pc and the server just handles the social and DRM aspects of the game. If they actually do make it playable offline I might buy it, until then, even if the servers are rock solid (which they never will be, its the nature of servers) I will not buy it.

Anyone have any idea if they are working on a fix so that you can log on to any server and have access to your region ? NE 1 was unavailable last night and I couldn't access my city!!

I saw four fire trucks drive around in a loop for minutes while the only house on fire burned with no traffic blocking its access...

Bit the bullet and bought the game last night... let's just say there goes my productivity for quite awhile

Was quite impressed that the game downloaded in about 3-5 minutes, and I was playing in a total of 10 from point of purchase. No server problems either - I must be one of the lucky ones.

Gifting s borked, be it a server issue I dunno.

I took over the city next door that was abandoned to get my oil supply back up, I have really depreciated the resource in my starting city (fracing anyone?) anyways after gifting a total of maybe 25k oil I go back into the first city and it's getting a perpetual influx of oil along with messages of oil gift received. The trade map show an incoming gift of 161k oil wich was never the amount and doesn't go down with each delivery.

I also heard someone on another forum say it happened to him and a buddy with a simoleon gift, he just kept getting money.


Kinda kills the whole idea of an economy when they turn that part of the servers back on.
