Also performance improvements for low spec systems.
The promised SimCity traffic congestion fix has been released by Maxis as part of Update 1.7, according to a forum post by EA.
The update is largely focussed on addressing traffic issues:
- Traffic Improvements: Tuned traffic congestion and fixed some intersection traffic issues.
- Traffic improvements: Emergency Vehicles will drive in empty lanes to get around traffic at intersections.
- Traffic improvements: Emergency and Delivery vehicles get priority over regular traffic when leaving garage.
There's a few other tweaks too, including the ability to demolish all units and buildings with the bulldoze tool, performance improvements on low spec systems, and the introduction of a second Asian server.
I wish Maxis could patch the traffic congestion on my morning commute.
