SimCity Update #7

Hello again, Mayors! Live Operations Producer Barrie Tingle here with another SimCity update. Quite a few things happened yesterday. Let’s go over each one:

  • Server Upgrades: We’ve completed the migration of all our original servers to the new, faster/higher capacity server architecture. We’ll continue to provide ongoing optimizations for our servers.
  • Server Status Page: Want to check the status of one of our servers? Now you can – the team created a server status page that lives on SimCity.com. You can view it here.
  • Patch 1.5: We’ve deployed a new patch yesterday to address some trade intermittency issues, which should make regional interaction more responsive. We’re going to continue to improve the speed between cities within a region. It should also decrease the chance of losing progress on your city via a rollback. You can view the full patch notes below.


That’s it. We’re continuing to optimize and improve the experience and will keep you informed of our future improvements.

    Can we please just get an estimate when cheetah speed is coming back? Removing that one feature has made the game so hard to play and enjoy, and we haven't heard any hints that it is coming back anytime soon. I can deal with most of the other issues, but this makes the game I bought and championed impossible to recommend, even with the server issues being resolved. Without cheetah mode, I paid 60 dollars for a pretty looking screensaver.

    YOU DID NOT FIX THE ROLLBACK ISSUE. YOU MADE IT WORSE....... YOU CAN NOT PLAY FOR LONG WITHOUT LOSING YOUR CITY.... I HAVE LOST ALL MOST ALL THE CITIES IN A GAME. I HAVE STARTED NAMING THEM "HOW LONG TILL IT CRASHES 1". THIS IS A WORSE PROBLEM THAN THE SERVER ISSUE BECAUSE YOU CAN PLAY BUT YOU CANT ACTIVE ANYTHING..... LETS TALK REFUND NOW...
