Ovi built a ferry today, I wonder if you can connect through that. We're working on an airport, maybe that will help.

No connection still, with ferry. If anyone on our side can get a ferry on that river and then figure out if a connection forms, that'd be good. Also if anyone still has an airport when they build one, then test to see if there's a connection, that'd also be good.

edit- I've managed to screw with the education system enough to force my students into my university, upgrading it's level. I now also have a School of Engineering in addition to a School of Science. Engineering boosts low and medium wealth industrial income, and Science boosts high-tech. I also finished research on the Great Work Solar Power Plant, but who cares about that thing when 600MW nuclear reactors can be built cheaply, cleanly, and safely if you've got the education. My Engineering school also unlocked HazMat fire trucks to fight HazMat fires that are started at industrial buildings. Next order of business is trying to force more students into the university, while researching Vertical Turbines for you wind nuts.

I just built an airport, so we can see if that does anything.

I'm pretty sure none of the regional features are working; I haven't seen any interaction between cities (in this region and another of mine) other than ones that have been there since the last patch.

You think they switched them off as a server balancing measure?

And to get us back in your good graces, we’re going to offer you a free PC download game from the EA portfolio. On March 18, SimCity players who have activated their game will receive an email telling them how to redeem their free game.

I know that’s a little contrived – kind of like buying a present for a friend after you did something crummy. But we feel bad about what happened. We’re hoping you won’t stay mad and that we’ll be friends again when SimCity is running at 100 percent.

They don't specify if we get a choice of what game, which makes me extremely wary. Even if there is a choice, I doubt there will be a large and new range.

I tried to build an airport and a Boat dock and both told me it wasn't ploppable. I had plenty of room for both, but it wouldn't even show me the little light blue dots where it could be placed. Not sure what is wrong with it. Also, I noticed that add-ons to the City Hall aren't showing up for me if someone else in the region has already placed it. It acts like no one has placed any and I have to place them myself. Don't know what's up with that either.

I hope the free game isn't something I already have. Hopefully they will give us a choice.

I'd love to have a city in the region just tell me how and I'll get among it all.

Hi , guys I had ball playing last night. I have got a city next to Raz, and I like universities so I built one and a school of Engineering. So our little cluster now has two!  ;D
I tried sending the alloy that I get from my Recycling plant to the Arco, but that doesn't work that well some way or another. There is now 15 of the 1000, but I'm not even sure that it is some of what I sent, or Raz's. ???
