EA said it couldn't be done, but a SimCity modder has proven them wrong - a mere week after release. Worse, he was also able to edit outside of his city and have it save, proving that a bigger city size would be easily implemented as well.
"wait two week at max. and there will be crack version of this game. DRM are only preventing and punishing buyers of the game from playing it offline. that's why UBI drop it off no point having it for ur game" that's what i said 6 days ago. i know it's not cracked version but one step at time.
... A DRM-free offline experience is all I wanted. If it means we'll also get bigger cities, than that's just extra gravylicious.
It's not worth it without large cities, the game is completely dependant (read forced multi player) on people making specialized cities and trading.
Go back to the older articles for a sec.... They said it couldn't be done.
thank goodness. i have been wanting to get an increase city size so badly. i don't care about playing offline much because servers haven't been an issue for me, although i might use the crack if its required to do the increase size mod. EA did a bad job with this and shouln't even be called simcity, more like simneighborhood
crack is on the way. YES!
I hope Maxis can implement this themselves, EA probably won't let them, but this mod will likely not work online. And I don't know if I want to risk losing online functionality for bigger cities... I want the best of both worlds.
Where do they get off thinking <25% of the map size of Sim City 4 was an improvement... Then making it Online only.
... the SC-community already spoke out about the always-online demand for a game we enjoy playing on our own, OFFLINE. And to also have the cities be much smaller than in SC 4 is just beyond ridiculous. So no, they didn't think, and they didn't listen. Sadly.
Does anyone know how to make SM4 work properly on W7 x64?
Works fine for me on Windows 8 through Steam. How're your drivers looking, and where do you have the game installed? You might need to download patches if they're not downloaded automatically. If you're in Steam; right click game, properties, local content, verify integrity. Best of luck!
No issues here, either. W7, Steam.
I played it last year with a hard copy, downloaded the updates and it ran flawlessly on W7 X64.
I can't wait for the crack!
Excellent I look forward to paying the superior hacked offline version
Sim city is a great game. Its insanely fun, plays well and looks good. The DRM has been a seriously poorly calculated decision as I've lost hours of play due ton the city "not processing right. We will bring you to the main menu to try and fix it" only yo have it revert to a day earlier in play time on more than 2 or 3 occasions. Is more than. A little frustrating. Plus who care about online play anyhow? I can't find a game to join to save my bloody soul. Broken broken broken.
There's a reason Ubisoft stopped using always-on DRM like this. They started it, they saw how stupid it was (especially when crackers made them look like fools), they stopped using it. I guess it's EA's turn, but they'll definitely be a lot more stubborn on this. It's already been proven that there is no "need" for the game to be always online, the way Maxis claims (several journalists have reported being able to play offline for 20 minutes before being booted), so EA and Maxis are huge liars who, quite frankly, deserve to be made to look like idiots.
I've never wanted a game to be pirated more than this one.. Usually I'd be against piracy and always advocate supporting developers however I'll personally make an exception for this game and hope the whole bleeding world pirates it. As Joe Rogan would say, you can't stop the internet baby!
I would like the multiplayer if it actually worked...
4E9Z-GRQ?-L2Z2-WXSR-H8LB- well the cracked version is out anyway here is a free key ... to whoever cares enough to brute force the ? edit: i want to play my way
Care to send the link of the cracked version? Plus your code does not work. EDIT: NVM I FIGURED OUT THE "?"
