I would imagine a region with trade between cities would have a city "run" whilst I was away, but not sure about solo cities.

I'm pretty sure it pauses, but makes resources available to others.

So I got disconnected a couple of times yesterday. Both times were while the game was minimized on cheetah speed, trying to earn some coin. Two different computers and ISPs. (I like how I can run Simcity on my work computer for lunchtime play and all day cash collecting).

Very frustrating.

In my first LGP land city, I replaced my solar power with a nuclear reactor. Despite being a city of over 50K, it never turned on. Green for safety (education level), I let it run for several cycles (days? months?) and it never hired any workers. My population dropped rapidly to below 20K, and then the fires broke out. And godzilla. I nuked the rest in frustration and abandoned it. What happened? I had schools, community college, so I know we had the workforce to staff the plant...it just never went live.

I do not have the game, but many games have the ability in their options menu to increase background fps/processing to fix these common issues. Maybe check that out.

Geeez, I really was looking forward to the game. I've "just about" bought it three different times.

..but then I go and look for some updated reviews. Things just don't seem to be getting better for the game. It's like two steps / one step \.

I would seriously wait until it takes a serious dip in price. With all of the stupid problems that had to be obvious in beta, you just need to wait awhile until they figure this mess out.

I had a couple weeks off due to other things going on. Jumped into a new region by myself. One city up over 200k pop and one over 300k pop pretty quickly. Utilities are the only issue (water/trash/sometimes power). Problem is that I always forget to specialize, so now I just have those cities humming along but not really doing anything in particular.

The gifting thing is still buggy. Maybe it's just gifting to your own city, but I sent my newer city 100k from the first one. It didn't arrive until I quit for the night and played the next day. And still not right away. Traffic wasn't an issue b/c my highways are wide open. Annoying on that part.

I need to figure out how to specialize in trade and things like that. I don't understand why I keep getting the messages from unhappy industry that they have nowhere to ship freight when I have trade depot (multiple). I guess I haven't figured out some of the standard messages for making people happier b/c I feel like I do it but nothing changes (like crime being high despite having the equivalent of an army for a police force).
