"Despite the three settings of driving complexity to make it seem like they are trying to ease you into the workings of the sim, there is no handholding. Not even an in-game tutorial. Members of the community have been making video walk-throughs, while lamenting the lack of a thick, fully printed manual. What you get in the box is a flimsy booklet that barely scratches the surface, and a couple of reference cards for keyboard controls and signals. To be fair, there are a couple pdf files on the disk, but remember the spiral bound textbook that came with Sim Earth back in the day? That is the kind of documentation that would be really helpful for software like this, and it's the kind of thing that enthusiasts enjoy poring over".
