+ Very Detailed Buildings, Roads, Cars, down to the physics in the water
+ Huge areas of land
+ Multiple landscapes to pick from
+ Ton of premade worlds to get started in
+ Trains, Boats, Airplanes, Subway, Hearses, Trash Trucks, Fire Engine, Police Car, Ambulance and a bunch more animated vehicles!
+ Every person is doing something in the city, and with cool activities like a ton of different style parks etc they actually animate them doing it!! Create a bus route and don't enough stops ? Hahaha well you will have a ton of people waiting outside because not enough stops and buses to meet the demand.
+Awesome path editor with many different road types and bridges and scenery
+ Steam Workshop
+ Progressing with milestones feels rewarding
+ Wind Turbines turn against wind, I thought this was really cool.
Now there is a ton more +'s but my hand hurts from carpool tunnel from playing the game like 15 hours straight so
Heres the -'s
Pathing on cars sometimes sucks bad
Not really many events other than random fires which don't spread =(
Road pathing tool can be pretty annoying when trying to upgrade skinny streets to wide streets
No Auto Save Feature
No Cycle of day and night ( That I know of )
Sometimes the game moves at such a fast pace that's not desirable, usually people like to speed it up but if you have a decent city the demand for structures will never stop or slow down!
Wish there was weather other than the wind is moving this way or that way
Things I would like in the game
Riots ( Maybe a military base with units ? or swat team that could stop riots ?)
( I am not sure if it exists outside of a mod ) But snow?
More things for people to do other than parks and plazas ( Baseball Park, Football Stadium, etc... I know the workshop will have tons of this stuff, but it would be nice to have the professional touch on more buildings with animations! ) Btw the soccer park in the work shop is pretty cool!
Seasons that change on time of year
Night Mode with lighted sky scrapers
I highly recommend this game, although it's more serious sim then that which you can have fun destroying your creations ( at the time being at least )
