Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Been waiting 24 26 28 30 minutes, so far.

And 30 minutes it is, finally got on.

Woo, servers went down, another 20 minutes! :-X

Raz makes me want to buy this game when he is describing how he's playing, if not just so I can help him out haha.

Shoot dude... shoot...
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I'm going to rescind my earlier request for money. My city maybe be full of murderers, dead people, and fires, but at least I'm making money!

Edit: Before I tear everything down, here is what my (terrible) city looks like:



OH DEAR GOD:

Detroit wants its crime back!

Also turns out TVs are processors + plastics, computers are processors + alloys. Oddly enough, TVs are far more expensive, yet they require cheaper materials (plastics).

Put in a search for "Hydromancerx" on the North America West 1 server.

---

In other news I am off coal and completely on wind power. The hill in the corner of my map is really good for wind power. I also had a zombie disaster too.

I also Gifted Raz with coal since it said he needed it and I don't have a coal power plant anymore eating up my coal. Feel free to gift moneys to me Raz.  ;)

I no longer really need coal, I import it from the Global Market. Realistically I don't need anything other than people to build cities on the other plots in my subset of the region, to provide MOAR housing and industry. Also students so my university can upgrade MOAR. MOAR!!!!

Cough.

In other news, I'm considering financing the construction of an Arcology on my Great Works site. Costs are estimated to be at about 14 million, including import costs of the Alloys, Metals, and 1 million foundation price tag. This cost doesn't take into account the production of TVs that would have to be funneled as carefully as possible to the site.

Dude just build another city next to yours, you obviously have the ability to manage both how you want.

Have been trying to get in all night. I got on the server but I can't join the region. I'm thinking of making an alternate region on another server for those times we can't connect. I don't even show up as a friend on that west coast server.

Currently 1 city per member.

Yeah, took me a while too. Think I'm taking tonight off. Weekend might be totally slammed.

Ovi sent me an invite but it didn't work, I think Hydro has to do it. The game says he is playing but he's not in chat.

HYDRO!!!! Add me while I'm still here.

On second thought, there seem to be system problems with Great Works currently. Bah! In any case, I'd send you guys monehs, but I don't have connections across the damned river.

edit- I keep forgetting to mention, I've gotten my Trading HQ to Level 3, and have unlocked all the trade options for Electronics and Metals. I've also unlocked the Electronics HQ's consumer electronics building, and the Metal HQ's smelting building. This essentially means that it is pointless to unlock the commerce buildings of the Electronics and Metals HQs, because my Trade HQ does what those buildings would do, only better.

This means you should all now have access to the full Electronics/Metals tech tree, including trading options with a Trade Port. This might mean it's possible to set up metal operations without initial mines or ore/coal beneath your land, but I'm not sure. It does mean that you can set up a pure Electronics industry, unlike what I've done, as you can now import the Alloys and Plastics needed for the industry right off the bat.

Other than that, if no one remembers, I've unlocked the 32MW solar panel generators, and the 200 MW Gen 2 nuclear reactors. Making good progress on the Fast Neutron reactors that pump out that sweet, sweet 600MW.

Looks like Ovi's invite worked. Nice to see you made it.

Alright, decided to get some pics up.

RAZOPOLIS



This is a shot of my industry in action.

THE MOTHERLAND OF INDUSTRY, COMRADE OF COMRADES!


Every one of those icons is either a delivery truck, trade depot, smelting factory, processors factory, or consumer electronics factory.

Yeah it worked and I started my city. What a mess those servers are, wow.

Anyway, that's enough for now.
