Sim City is Fun

I enjoy it very much. I like the new animations. The mayors' club helps with getting items I need. My fellow club members sometimes have the items I can't seem to find on the market. It is a super game. I am an avid player. However I'm near the end of the game now. I still have some construction and I still compete in the mayors competitions for speed up tokens, keys and simoleons. I have more road construction ahead to upgrade most roads to streetcar roads. I notice that my street cars won't cross the street to another street car road or go around the bend unless all roads in an intersection are streetcar roads. I would like this fixed. Some 2 lane roads going over bridges will never be upgraded. They have to match the bridge and are too short anyway. I want the streetcars on those intersections to work properly. My maglev cars and infrastructure in my omega blocks do work properly. I just want the streetcar intersections to support rails and interconnectivity the same way. Please help. Also is it possible to grow the city limits more? I realize city size is probably a trade off among several things like average user memory space, number of users on at any given time, and server memory space for object caching, and server disk space. Please look into this. I love the game. I have built a beautiful, varied and very charming wealthy city with 100% sim happiness. 😀

Overall it's really fun

Overall the game itself is pretty fun, but there are some areas where the game can be improved. 1 being that expansions of your land are not available until level 10. I feel like level 5,6 or 7 would be more practical because around level 8 I started to run out of land and had to start to delete things such as parks. Also,I feel like when you first start you should have more friends instead of just "Daniel".

Now some things I did like about the game is that you can play it without WIFI. That is one thing that I really liked because sometimes my data gets slower at the end of the month so I just turn it off and then I can use SimCity unlike other apps that are WIFI only. Also I feel like the graphics on this game are really good! (Or at least on my phone they are) I also really liked the little sims that you could see walking down the side of the road and I thought that was a really nice touch :)

Amazing app, yet gets frustrating in the endgame...

I've been playing this game for a while now and have a level 34 city with about 340,000 people. The gameplay was really exiting and playable right up until level 20, but after that, all I could really do is wait until I collected enough items to expand my city. The game also hasn't had a update in a while either, which is making the game rather stale. I REALLY love this game and want to keep playing. I used to check on my city, Sector 618, over 15 times a day doing thins like: Collecting resources, upgrading buildings, building roads, and managing services. Now all I can do is wait and hope that I come across an expansion item, and that frustrates me. I really hope the game is updated soon, because I like the game and want a reason to play it again. SUGGESTIONS: Country flags? Persian/Arab homes? New, cheaper landscaping items? (I'm not spending 10 SimCash on a tree!)
