    CorruptDictator I want a custom title, but I dont trust VintagePC

    Should we make a region right away, or wait until we have gotten a feel for the game? (personally I think having one right away would be funnier since our potentially shitty cities could all struggle together)

    i dont care either way really. I will probably play a little on my own until everyone gets a chance to settle in

    You can select your server from the launcher I think. Mine defaulted to a US East one (which makes sense since I am in the midwest).

    Alright well I created a region because I didnt want to jump into sandbox and have cheats and all of that. Add me on your friends list netzilla and you should see the region :) Vaultinian I will invite as I see people add me. If you want to start your own region thats cool as well I will join in there as well.

    Got to play for just over half an hour on lunch, made a private region just to get a feel for things. Liking what I see so far. I did add you to my friends list Net.

    Once you are not Net's friends list, he will have to manually invite you to the region. At least that is how I understand the system to work.

    someone else go ahead and start a region, let me know what server you are on as well. I have a feeling the server I was on will not be very populated with people from here s I will go elsewhere :D

    I hate the invite system, i wish you could make a private region with a password and allow for people to search for regions by name.

    Same with me let's hope the game wouldn't let you keep plating because I had like 4 hours of progress

    oh how i wish i could join you guys in playing :( but i still cant find a good site to buy it from that wont cost me 120 dollars :/

    Being an international gamer does seem to suck tig.

    I think my city went to hell last night. I had really good controlled growth, no major issues other than some minor crime and was focusing on expanding my education system. I needed to save money for a high school so I decided to afk for less than 10 minutes while tax money piled up. Came back to some sort of insane unexpected population boom and suddenly I was short on power and sewage disposal. Power was easy to solve, but I dropped 3 additional sewage plants (previously my entire town was fine with one) and they are all still overloaded and I cannot afford the treatment plant.

    Well we can always open a temp city to take all the sewage away from all the cities until we get more people playing.

    Also I think we need to use TS or mumble to communicate because the in-game chat seems to lag a lot and doesn't notify you of new msgs.

    I am going to put an hour into trying to salvage my city, going to drop the density on several major roads and hope for the best.

    I went through and upgraded most of my roads...it was madness traffic jams in the downtown area. Now they are all major with street car and still get bottled up. I will probably start a new city eventually if not to many other people come in and play its getting to a weird point where lots of abandoning because nowhere to ship products, and bottlenecks that tie up cops, ambulances, and firetrucks.
