Added some traffic tips in the first post. I'm still trying to figure out how to maintain a city of 150k+ population without it crippling the economy.

What will my Windows PC need to get SimCity running so I can build the best city in the world?
Operating Systems:
SimCity will run on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. Mac OSX will be supported come Spring 2013. To learn more about the upcoming Mac version of SimCity, please visit this article.
Internet Connection:
Players will need an Internet connection of at least 256 kbps download and 64kbps upload or faster.

CPU:
Intel players will need, minimally, a 2.0 GHz Core2Duo, while our AMD players will need at least an Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+.

RAM:
At least 2GB of RAM.

Hard Drive:
10 gigabytes of space free are required.
Optical Drive:
DVD-ROM drive required.

Video:
Players will need at least a 512 MB video card featuring either an NVidia 7800 or better, an AMD chipset of at least an ATI Radeon HD 2x00 or better, or an Intel Series 4 integrated graphics or better.

***NOTE: All the above-mentioned must also have a minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM and Shader 3.0 or better support.
It is essential to the game’s performance and stability that the latest possible drivers for your video card are installed at all times.

You don't really need an optical drive if you buy it from Origin. :)

Gifting question... it may have just been a bug with the timing, but do you have to do anything to receive a gift? I sent one out of my main city to jump start a new one. In the region view, I can see the car with the money driving around but it never goes to drop off the money in the new (now larger) city. Do you need a town hall to receive gifts? If so, that may have been the issue as I sent it prior to building one. But the AI is still driving around the region with a stash of $40k in the car not going anywhere in particular. I would really like that money back :)

I've seen gifting as either being bugged completely or it takes a long time for the money to arrive, due to server issues.

Mine money arrived in about 10 minutes yesterday. Both cities had Town Halls, but I don't know if that was a factor or not.

Which server is LGP's region going to be on? I got your Origin invite, but I don't see any in game invites.

We need a public safety addition to someones town hall when you get to that point, I should have almost all the rest already available.

I wish there was a way to start over within the region on your site.

Yes. If you're into city building, economics, sociology, environmental science, anthropology, civil engineering, logistics, or a combination of these...you will like.

I'm boycotting the game until the always-online requirement is removed.

Is it similar to the old simcity games?

Also, what is the specific issue with the DLC?

Everything has been fixed, they are going to start enabling some of the features they disabled to handle the massive server loads on release day
