Maxis Reveals Plans For SimCity 2.0 Update
The developer says that Maxis is currently working to fix a number of bugs that have thus far been identified by players, and that the game’s next update, 2.0, will see four key issues addressed: “addressing the Recycling Center bug, fixing the fire engine clumping, improving the efficiency of Street Cars, and increasing the radius of river water.”
“We’ve been heads down addressing the key issues we’re seeing reported from our community. This includes city rollbacks, lost progress, and the return of features like Cheetah Speed and Leaderboards,” wrote Katsarelis. “Like you, we want all of these resolved ASAP, which is why they are the top priorities in our studio. Matter of fact, we have all of these in a QA environment, giving them a thorough test before we release them back to you, the fans.”
For those not in the know, the game’s recycling center bug causes a city’s recycling center to stop collecting trash, and that the only way to fix it (at the present) is to demolish it and rebuild the utility completely. Likewise, increasing the radius of river water should allow large cities to grow more efficiently, as cities run out of clean water very quickly.
