I don't know about you guys but one of the fun aspects for me in a SimCity is the transportation. Being able to create a city where my Sims can get around with out major bottlenecks on every block.
As I watch this game near its final development almost every Video, pic and promotion shows a major city in a small space with Major Gridlock on every corner.
How is this practical if emergency units will need to get from point a to b in a set time to fight crime, out fire, save lives.
when there is noting but cars from light to light not going any where?
Not to mention cities have outside Sims pouring into the already cramped city. There is no way a city will function if what your showing us is practical game play city.
In the beta I tried to avoid building city blocks as much as possible to avoid this and focused on long roads with as little intersections as possible to avoid this mas buildup of cars. Which I must add is not my idea of an actual city planed.
I trust Maxis will fix this issue, maybe limit the traffic pouring into the city and\or add a micro management for stop light to move a stretch of road at a time to get the city moving.

Why didn't it work under XP?  Was your machine below spec?

Make sure you get all the latest patches.  My understanding is that they really reinvigorated the game.

-Autistic Angel
I exceeded the recommended spec the game just had major issue on release day
I did contemplate updating but I am actually scared to mess with it since its actually working as is right now.

WOW!!! not a popular game around here, I can confirm that the game works on windows 7 64bit.
It was my day one purchase disc that never worked back in my XP days.

You've clearly not met Origin's mentally disabled cousin, uPlay. 
uPlay makes Origins look good.
Correction uPlay make Origins look like a well oiled machine.
I must say in all fairness I cant tell you how many times I had to reinstall my OS in the early days of Steam.
It wasn't until 2011 I put that back on my system and loves in now.

I will have to look for this, the sales person made it sound like it can only be professionally done and will take 3 hours to get it right.

I can't even find a plasma tv around here; they're all LEDs now.
I was drawn to the 720p plasmas that was between all to the 1080p LED\LCD TV's because they just showed a better picture.
My stubbornness to purchase 720 the sale guy was able to find me a 1080 for under $600. signed sealed delivered.

I got myself a 50" LG Plasma TV (50PA6500) for Christmas. It has a great picture and sound however I was coursed by the sales person that this will be great for gaming.
Now I am watching YouTube comparisons LCD vs Plasma and the term burn-in is constantly coming up against plasma TVs. It's dead even between it been a problem to its a problem of the past from all I have seen so far.
Can anyone with knowledge of these types of TV's clarify if a gaming run 8-12hr cause burning in on my new TV?
Or if burn-in is still a problem on plasma TV's?
I can see games like GTA that have that constant map and so on been an issue.

I got the game due to the forum effect and I am loving it way more than I should be right now. I seriously need to be playing and finishing AC Revolutions before the 30th.

2. 4 streams max. Period. Can be 4 HD, 4 SD, this doesn't matter, just a max of 4 channels going at the same time. Anything recording counts toward this, watching recorded TV does not. You can pause live TV on any box. You can be limited to less if your wire distance to the VRAD is too long and you can't train at the highest profile.

I just called ATT to cancel my installation and they put the tech manager on the phone who insist its 8 stream total.
With my 5 tv streaming I can only record 3 shows while viewing TV but a max of 4 can be recorded.
This will work.
I would just hate for the tech to install then have to pull it out because its not so.



That tech manager was very mistaken.

I should clarify. The max number of unique live TV channels is 4 channels. It doesn't matter, assuming you're on the highest profile, HD vs SD. On lower profiles, you get less HD channels, but you're still limited to 4 "live TV" channels.

For example, say you want to watch/record NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX at the same time.

1. You can watch NBC on one TV, ABC on one TV, CBS on one TV and FOX on one TV. On the 5th TV, you would have to watch recorded TV or the same channel as one of the other TVs.

2. You are recording NBC and ABC on the DVR. You can watch CBS on one TV and FOX on one TV. On the other 3 TVs, you would have to watch recorded TV or the same channel as one of the other TVs.

3. You are recording NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX on the DVR. On all 5 TVs, you have to watch recorded TV or the same channel as is being recorded.

For all of these, if someone wanted to watch Cartoon Network, they wouldn't be able to without someone changing from NBC, ABC, CBS or FOX to Cartoon Network.

Here is AT&T's official explaination:
http://www.att.com/esupport/article.jsp?sid=KB401042&title=Understanding+U-verse+TV+streams#fbid=mdidjeQRxJX

Thank you for that information. I canceled my install and only then did the person on the other end agread that I would no be a good fit for their service. They claim they are working on it and she also reported everyone else that I talked to for retraining.
I was her 3rd call for the day with the same issue.

How many TV can be viewed with U-verse at the same time. I have 5 TV 2 of which are HD. Last time I tried U-verse when the HDTV were on the standard tv could not be viewed. With in a month U-verse was gone.
So here I am faced with changing service again and me being with ATT wireless for 14 years, I want to give them a chance plus I like the every room DVR.
Can I get some user input. 
HD quality compared to DTV?
Number of simultaneous live TVs that can be viewed?
Do the channel change when I hit the button? (people with DTV know what Iam talking about)
Is the hardware reliable?
Do the channel go out when it rains? Roll Eyes kidding.

I am so over this crap. You gave me a free HDDVR when you dropped G4TV and that was OK, but with this new line up there is no pacifying. This is a breach of contract on your part and I will be out.
Time to call AT&T or Bright house before the mas exidos from DTV. Greedy dumb  asses.

DIRECTV IS AT IT AGAIN
DirecTV is dropping channels…again. This time, DirecTV is threatening to drop Nickelodeon, MTV, BET, COMEDY CENTRAL, and more. We’re disappointed that this is happening, especially since we’ve been working day and night to come to a resolution. We even granted DirecTV a deal extension. We simply can’t understand why DirecTV doesn’t value the channels its subscribers watch the most.

Viacom is 20% of DirecTV’s viewership, and only 5% of its programming costs. We over deliver for DirecTV, but are hugely undervalued. Our most recent offer to DirecTV asks for what amounts to pennies a day for 26 channels, and we remain willing to negotiate.

Because of DirecTV you will lose hundreds of shows you and your family enjoys day in and day out. No more SpongeBob. No more VMA’s. No more Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. No more Jersey Shore.

Why is DirecTV taking away your channels?

The fact is that DirecTV would rather fight than work to make a fair deal with Viacom. In the past three years, DirecTV has fought publicly and bitterly with seven different programmers. During the same period, Viacom has made dozens of deals peacefully and productively, without a single fight. The record speaks for itself.

DirecTV is fighting again. Make sure you don’t lose the channels and shows you love. Call 800-531-5000 now and demand that DirecTV keep Nickelodeon, MTV, BET, COMEDY CENTRAL, and all 26 Viacom channels.

haven't had any queues yet, but I was just in and got disconnected during single player.  now I'm getting error 37.  makes me want to look and see if anyone has figured out alternative ways of playing.

To me it's more about EA's attitude than about the quality of Origin. I refuse to support companies that treat me like shit, which means both EA and Ubisoft currently get the middle finger from me. I'm continually amazed at how many people proclaim that you should "vote with your dollars", yet almost nobody has the backbone to actually follow through. I do, and I will.

I agree.....but its SIMCITY V.

I checked my back log and behold I still got my gangsters2 CD, no product Key needed. I ve been playing the hell out of it all night, I forgot how good that game was. Why they never made a 3rd version.
