    Yeah sorry about that. I have trains, buses, streetcars, a ferry terminal and still my traffic is unrelenting. Only 83'000 population ish and it's chaos. I've tried tweaking junctions etc but it's not having a great effect at the moment.

    Oh how I could use some no left turn/no right turn/no U-turn/one way streets and signs. At the moment I feel kind of hamstrung on what I can do to sort the traffic out.
    The Space Centre should be ready to start now. Razz can have his spaceships. \o/

    I think we are going to need a lot more Medium wealth people Region wide and an absolute shit ton of Crude Oil.

    A big patch is on the way at some point soon.

    I'm pondering a second refinery. The trade will help me upgrade the Trade HQ and then I can trade metal and plastic to subsidise fuel donations to Razz's Rocket*

    I've got one refinery pumping out pure plastic and my recycling plant is pumping out pure alloy which is all going into processors so I'm making a mint now.

    Makes the whole operation future proof so when the oil runs out I can import crude and hopefully keep on making money.

    That said I'm running at 12k in the red and it keeps on rising. Had a couple of very close shaves with my trade trucks getting snarled up in traffic. It's all a bit too close for comfort.

    Oh got a Zombie outbreak on the go at the moment as well. I logged off last nigh just as it started so I'm not sure if that effects the region.

    Close, but no. He prefers 'Razz's Big Cock'.

    Um, I'm guessing. Never even met the guy. He is a guy, right?

    @Razz Yep got all three processing but the tons per day doesn't seem to increase even though the cargo is full and metal, alloy & plastics are less than a quarter full. Could just be me checking at the wrong time I guess...

    @magicpanda Nope, maybe it's not synched yet. :( Has the research project definitely finished?

    OK chaps started to churn out processors like crazy to upgrade electronics HQ, sales aren't shifting enough yet though, I've a sneaky suspicion I need to get some fresh infrastructure as I'm still running on the initial clusterfuck.
    Processors making quite the profit though sitting on 3.5 million atm though with -1.9k an hour bloody citizens bitching about everything.

    Would love a single save option so I could demolish willy-nilly* and see if I can rebuild a little smarter without running into other issues, damn your lack of an undo button game.

    Yeah man, it's ridiculous how much money electronics make :D I've got 3 maxed out processor factories, I'm not hitting the threshold to get the consumer electronoics plant yet. I may need to build another but I've got not a lick of space in my town. :(

    @Razz Bloody Nora. I suspected I'd need to build more to hit that magical 1,500,000 currently with one maxed out processor plant the closest I get is 600k. Three though and you're still not hitting it?

    I wonder how much I'll be spending to gut the whole town and start from scratch :)

    I've had problems with plastic and alloy supplies, and sometimes power and water. So I've never had a perfect day of trading. also traffic as been a factor, I've recently build a large trading port with a train connection so hopefully I'll get it soon, just need to leave my computer on and not tinker with my town!

    It's a shame the regional trade is so flakey as we could get certain folks to focus on various utils. I could certainly plop lots of water plants down. At the mo I'm just making sims, lots of medium and high wealth, relative to city size.

    Region chat was working last night so hopefully we can get a bit more organised.

    My city is all kinds of fucked in regards to medium sim jobs and shopping.

    No chance it will be anything anybody wants, doesn't already have, or didn't play years ago.

    You were ........ but the date has been put back a few days:

    This could of course also be a cynical ploy to boost flagging sales of the new Sim City .....

    Sim City 4. Lol.

    Region chat ain't so bad but maybe we could use Skype or some such for a more reliable method.

    I just wish the utils work. I was buying sewage from some of you guys but then the servers decided they were tired so I started backing up with crap.

    Is that you doing that? or are they putting that in the game? or is it just hackers doing it.

    Balls to it! I'm amassed 4 million from chips and I'm not really improving. I've not done much since starting and I can't start laying out avenues without cocking random bits of city up, going to raze the city to the ground and lay down some decent roads :)

    I'm so tempted to do that too! :D I might, after the shuttle launches. My city was so poorly planned :(
