I think by the end of the weekend more servers will be on. I'm on the east coast and didn't have any trouble on the west coast server, so which ever server everyone chooses is fine with me.

My copy arrived, and I added those of you that posted your Origin ID's in here to my friends, (ange I added your's too.)

My Origin ID is : Wesgar by the way.

I did a quick scroll through this list and it looks there were more 'joins' to the North America West 1 server -

I'll join that server too. if/when I can... it's been tuff.

(as everyone else, I'm happy to change if group consensus is to start some where else. but for now...)

I'll look for a TOG region, but if none is to be found - I'll pop one up called:

TOG-Wesgar

I will Make it private, which means I'll have to send out invites.


or something close to that, please feel free to join in - um.. of course, understand I have no idea what I'm doing at this point. we can look at that region as a 'live n learn' region for our 'practice' Cities.

I made it as large as I can. I think 16 Cities Plots can be in that region.

--- update ---

My first few attempts at joining have been met with failure.

--- update ---

I got in, and created TOG-Wesgar 16 city region.

For your first time out, I would suggest joining a region in sandbox mode. Alt-W is your financial friend. It allows you the freedom to try out everything just to get a feel for what does what. There are also some other Alt-? commands that do various other things for you (in sandbox mode only). You can find them online.

My initial impressions of this new SimCity?

It should be properly titled, "SimCity 5: Bedroom Communities". That's exactly what this came feels like to me.

SimCity has always been a single player experience for me. This new version forces multiplayer style gaming. Achievements are okay, but the challenges and leaderboard make this game too much like a MMO Strategy Simulation. I can't recall ever playing a previous version of SimCity and thinking to myself, "Hey, am I making more money than some other dude playing this? Can I find out?" No.

City sizes are small...really, too small. Plopable addons for your govt & services buildings is interesting, but you have to make sure you plan the proper space for it before dropping the building. Odd angles & curves in transportation pathing are nice, but once again, a grid layout seems to be the best use of limited space.

Graphics are great and the detail is fascinating.

Just some initial impressions. Currently, I grade this 3 out of 5 stars.

Please, Quote/reply to this and let me know if you'd like an invite to the '16 city' region that I set up.

Please state your Origin name, or just friend me: Wesgar

and I'll send out an invite.

fun fun.

P.S. I'd love to join other regions and build a city with other TOG players if you have one going.

thanks.

It looks like when you make a 'private' city, it makes it so that you can only 'join, by invitation only'.

I was hoping for a list, and that some one could enter a password, but no such luck.

I tried to do invites from my friends list, but I'm thinking that the 'friends' have to be online to do it. we will have to play with this when more than just one of us are on line.

I'm looking forward to having another city in the region though! I need Trading partners to take all this awesome crude oil off mah hands.

I was able to play for a couple of hours, and I must say, I'm quite enjoying the game.

The BS surrounding the 'must always be on the internet' DRM and the fact that you can't play SIM City, a traditionally 'single player' experiance, because the servers are too full, that part is a travesty for sure.

but the game play itself, so far has been quite enjoyable.

that's my 'first take' on the game.

I'm no 'hard core' sim city fan by any means though, I just have fond memories of messing around in Sim City 2000 and other sim city games (pre and post,) I get the same enjoyment out of this one, that I did out of those... when I finally get 'online' and can play that is.
