So far I'm liking this upgrade. Thank you. However, I have economic empire and importer rewards at 3* which needed 250000 to achieve. New reward for master trader and master purchaser set new 1* at 500000 each but do we really have to start again or is this another glitch? Same happened for wealthy and the new master of simoleons, starting from scratch to earn 1500000 for 1*? Design or error?

Is there any clue what the change to specialisations is? Are all able to boost by 100% like parks can, or are there combination rules as before? Is worship another 100% boost too? Like some idea before I splash out on buildings that might not make a difference. Thanks.

Hi Jamie, 

The achievement counter is as designed. 

 

The changes to specializations was to tweak the bonus population you received when placing one of the buildings in the city. A minor bug where the right amount of population was not shown was fixed in this update, and many Mayors with specialization buildings in their cities should have seen a small increase in their populations.

Thank you Amelie. Just bug fixing so I infer from your message that gambling entertainment and landmarks remain a combined 100% while parks worship education and transport provide 100% each? Your tutorials aren't updated yet so can't check elsewhere.

What i have seen till now a nice update. Just have to explore more.

 

Only on my phone (Galaxy Note 1) i'm not able to zoom out anymore?? Is this also part of the update? It's a bit irritating to play at max zoom in mode.

I'm having the same problem on my Droid Turbo.  I can't zoom out any longer.  Is there a resolution option somewhere?

"New Road upgrades – Boulevards, Avenues, and Street Car Avenues"

Very misleading. The implication is that these updates are optional. But these "upgrades" are effectively mandatory and will cost hundreds of thousands of simoleons.

Six lane roads can no longer handle all traffic. So, within a day or so, you'll start having traffic problems and have to spend a LOT to upgrade your road net, more or less at the same time. Effectively, this update will confiscate hundreds of thousands of simoleans. I now wish I could reinstall the previous version. Fair warning.

EA, are you sure this isn't the "Disastrous Update"?

Well, it looks like I will be done with this game as of today.

 

This update is not an update, it is a reset, and a total money grub.

 

Currently I have over 1 million population, have only 10 unlocked land zones left, and 300k simoleans.  I now have 500k in road upgrades due, can't get any keys because you have to upgrade @ big $ the ALREADY PAID FOR Vu Tower before you can get to any meaningful disasters, the Trade Center is chocked full of Vu items because there is no longer a benefit and it is too costly for most to upgrade. You'll never get enough keys using only the ship. The new "achievements" are a joke because you get no credit for what you've already accomplished, and they are 3 dollars. whoopdie f'n doo. Add to that you have to collect stupid storage upgrade items again because the increase to storage (which you really only need because you have to collect locks, cameras and bars).

 

WHY WOULD ROADS THAT WERE PERFECTLY GOOD ALL THIS TIME NOW BE INADEQUATE WHEN I HAVEN'T ADDED ANY HOUSING?

 

Add to that the view is so zoomed in now I can only see about 1/8 of my city at a time.

 

You completely ruined the game this time, idiots.

 

FIX IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT HESITATE. DO NOT TALK IT OVER. RESET TO PREVIOUS VERSION - NOW.
