The only change I see to the Global Trade HQ is that you changed the ding message to "We are terribly sorry to inform you that the item is no longer available." with a "return to Global Trade HQ" button so I can experience even more disappointment. 


Really? That's the best you can do?

Look to the left of the Global Trade HQ. Click on the circular drive that looks like a storage lot and you'll be prompted to build the airport. I got a cryptic message about going to the airport site and couldn't find what it was until I ventured online.

Visiting neighbours has slowed down extremely and is very choppy. Also my city crashes more.

The Neighbours Bar still lists each city's population, as if I care! That is useless info. What I would like to know is if that city has anything for sale, and if so, how many items, how many times I have bought from them, how many times they have bought from me. And why are the cities listed in order of population size?!? Again useless. At least alphabetical order would enable me to find a city I am looking for.

I like the new changes. I do have to say though my game does crash a lot since this update. Black screen and then back to my phone's desktop. I have  a Nexus 5.

And I'm sorry to say the Global Trade HQ still sucks balls. It reacts better (before dragging after opening would do nothing, or open the first ever city I put my finger on to start swiping), that's gone now, nice! But I still don't get why the city of the seller needs to be loaded. By the time all that's done, the item I wanted to buy is long gone.

After this update was impossible to make new keys. Ship orders are well difficult, should be producing items, 2 boxes, and only 1 case with manufacturing item. So also in charge of the aircraft.
The game is getting very complicated.
