SimCity - Обновление 4.0

Студия Maxis выпустила обновление 4.0 для экономической стратегии-градостроительного симулятора SimCity.

Разработчики вновь включили региональные фильтры, так что теперь открытые игры можно будет искать по разделам Map Name, Sandbox Mode и Abandoned Cities. Также повторно включен Мировой Рынок, что обеспечит колебание цен во время игры.
Еще в игру были внесены различные усовершенствования и исправления и добавлен новый контент в виде бесплатной новой карты и эксклюзивного парка, который будет доступен в течение ограниченного времени.

Карта Edgewater Bay является регионом для семи городов, в котором все они связаны между собой и расположены на побережье залива.
Строение Launch Park заинтересует жителей среднего достатка и сделает их жизнь счастливее. Парк периодически запускает в небо воздушные шары в виде черепахи, гепарда, ламы, сердца и облака.

Перечень изменений  +
  • New: SimCity Launch Park, an exclusive new park just for our dedicated fans who were early adopters.
  • New: Region: Edgewater Bay. Seven city sites in one cluster around a beautiful bay with one great work site.
  • New: Your current server will now be shown in the options menu.
  • New: More detailed rollover information on buildings telling player’s if their Sims received happiness from a park or from shopping. Previous to this fix, this information was generic.
  • Re-Enabled Feature: Global Market prices now dynamically change during gameplay.
  • Re-Enabled Feature: Leaderboards will be active on EU West 3, Pacific 1 and Pacific 2 at the release. We will enable them on additional servers throughout the day.
  • Re-Enabled Feature: Region filters are now enabled on all SimCity servers. Players will be able to search for open games by Map Name, Sandbox Mode, and Abandoned Cities.
  • Rain Clouds: Fixed an issue where some cities would not have rain clouds to replenish their water table. If you had a city with this issue, you will start seeing clouds again within a game day.
  • Fire: Improved response time of fire trucks to fires. Improved the time it takes for a fire signal to reach a fire station.
  • Mission updates: Tuned Metals HQ and Community College missions. These were appearing too early, making them difficult to complete. They now appear later in a city’s development.
  • Solar Farm Great Work: Reduced fire risk at the Solar Farm Great work. Local fire engines were spending too much time at the Solar Farm.
  • Messaging: Improved pre-requisite messaging for Trade Port, Casinos, Smelting Factory and Oil Refinery. It should be clearer on how to unlock these buildings.
  • Graphics: Fix for flickering low wealth buildings on NVIDIA graphics cards.
  • Education: Fix for an issue some cities experienced where commuting students did not return from a neighbor’s city. This was causing a problem where students would disappear from a city in some cases.
  • Tuning: Sims will lose a small amount of happiness if they don’t have a place to shop. Cities without places to shop will see complaints and feel the effect of unhappy Sims. This will emphasize the importance of commercial zones.
