I bet all of you who are reading this know, or at least heard about the Sim City 5/Sim City 2013, scandal, the game using a DRM license forcing the gamers to play online only, and not letting people play the game if they don't have an internet connection available at the moment.
To make matters worse, after you logged into the game(through Origin, which sucks and its also a spyware) you have to join a server in order to play SINGLEPLAYER, or more precisely. a pseudo-single player, since your city is affected by a global economy which is affected by the other players. But the biggest problem is that the servers that EA made available for the game can't handle all the people that bought the game, so basically, you bought a singleplayer game, which requires internet connection, so that in order for you to create a city, to play alone, you have to connect to servers, that if they aren't offline, they are full and crashing/lagging most of the time...EA servers can't handle all the people that bought the game.
If i keep pointing the problems of this game i'm gonna write a whole book, because if its not the technical problems, its the game limitations, like NO TERRAFORMING, the limit size of your city is 4km², seriously, WHAT CAN YOU BUILD IN JUST 4KM²??? No subway, the airport is a separate area that occupies an area of the size of a city (2x2km), you can't modify the region, can't build railroads, no ports, no airports... What the F is Maxis and EA thinking???
Well, we all know the theme phrase of EA Games don't we?
Fortunately, there is an indie project called CIVITAS, which seems to be the salvation of the City building players, since Sim City just got totally ruined by EA, its time for a change, go after a new game that will give the players what they are actually looking for, and the search ends here, this game CIVITAS is gonna bring everything that we, Sim City players, wanted including zoning the size of our cities.
But, in order for this dream to become true, they need money to fund the creation of the game, so if anyone can donate, please do
