SimCity v1.5 arrives with latency and crash fixesSimCity


Patching continues for this evening and in this update there’s a game crash fix, latency improvements and more. Having played for the past 6 hours non-stop we have had no issues today with the game, even the gift money bug appears to have been fixed. However, a lot of issues seem to dependent on individual servers. Here’s the notes…

This update to SimCity contains the following updates and fixes:

• This patch fixes an issue that was causing the game to crash.

Server Improvements:
• Optimizations to improve latency. Region wall and city to city trading will be more responsive.
• Database optimizations that will improve the success rate for connections.
• Fixed an issue with rollbacks. Higher chance of success and less chance of getting in a rollback loop

Incidentally, we discussed SimCity in this seek’s Vidcast/Podcast and you can listen to our thoughts on the game so far when that goes live tomorrow.
