Here is a new issue that I just experienced 30 minutes ago.
I recently plopped a convention center in my city of 60,000+ tourists. Two things happened: Unable to open any specialization menu and all of the bubbles started to stay static on the screen. Also, video records at a supersonic speed for some reason, no way to slow it that I know of.
North America East 3
Intel Core i7 3610QM - 2.3 GHz
nVidia GeForce GTX 660M - 2 GB
12 GB Ram
i am unable to load any of my citys, when i try to open the game i get a message saying
"The simcity server are unavailable, for more information click the more info link"
i do eventually get the "your game is ready to play" but when i click the play icon i get a messages saying "network dissconnected" and i am unable to play.
i only started to get these messages since an update was downloaded yesterday evening
You are really started to annoying me!!!
They're only starting to annoy you??? haha
While I do appreciate you guys being more interactive recently with your clients, however it' still feels like you guys are just scrambling to get out these quick fixes.
IMO this game will never be fully fixed with the way you guys have your online mode set up. Too much information and too many variables. A true cloud based system is what you need to fix this problem and obviously it's not the way the game was designed. Goodluck.
1.] Can't connect to server. Using North America East 1.
2.] Seems to also kill my internet connection. From a clean reboot, I can access internet normally. However, from a clean reboot, then opening origin and attempting to run Simcity, it telling me it can't connect, quiting simcity and quitting origin, I can no longer access the internet until I reboot again.
2 hours of network debugging and all I had to do was not try to play Simcity...
Since updating to 3.1 I have a new issue. When sending resources to the great works my delivery trucks will deliver and then disappear. My trade depot storage will remain full forever until I bulldoze the freight truck garages and re-plop them in edit mode. I had to do this several hundred times for my great work to complete as I was the only one contributing to it in my region.
