I didn't realize this came out tomorrow, so I preordered this morning. If we get a N4G region together, I'd join that. I want to make a hi-tech/higher education city, or a industrial/shipping type of city.
I thought the same thing until I started reading reviews and seeing how difficult that will be without more cash flow, but with all of us in a region together, that may be more feasible. I'm going to go for some kind of resource city - power, oil, or maybe a police town. Something I can outsource for money.
BTW start adding me tonight as I'll be a work until 6pmEST tomorrow - meaning I probably wont be on until 7 but if the region is already set up, i'll just accept whoever is sending out invitations
@MattyG Reading the FAQ last night to see if this worked on a Mac, it stated that it doesn't require much for either OS to run. Obviously things may run slow if you get into having a super large city since the game is tracking EVERYTHING. Each and every Sim has a life with needs and you can click on any of them and get their name and occupation and see what they like and dislike. You can even follow them around throughout the day and see how they live. But as with the Sims, I'm assuming you can turn random visual things down to make your gameplay smoother so large cities wont hurt you.
Go to canyourunit.com, type SimCity in the search, install the plugin for your browser, then let it tell you how well it thinks you will be able to run the game. What I like about that site is that it tells you the minimum requirements and recommended, and then tells you why you fail or pass, and what you can do to fix it - unless you have a laptop or Apple computer that can't be upgraded
