    I see the latest incarnation includes multi-playing capability. Not sure I want to pony up the $40 for it or just install SimCity 4 Deluxe. I got this itch for it after seeing a youtube vid of someone trying to emulate Detroit.

    After reading some reviews on SimCity I opted not to buy it. Instead, I bought Cities XL Platinum. 7GB download, so I left my computer to download it overnight.

    Eager to get this started. I ran into an interesting quirk. I installed it in English, but the game would load the menu in French. Uninstalled 3 times, same result. Did a google search on the problem. Turns out one of the shortcuts you need to modify the Target and add LOCALIZATION/LANGUAGE=en to it. Did it and it loads in English finally.

    I've heard this is what SimCity could have been if not for EA messing things up. Any others city building games to look at?
