SimCity Update 7 Adds Terrain Tool for Overpasses and Tunnels

Posted on August 1, 2013 AT 01:20am

SimCity‘s seventh update will add a new terrain tool which allows players to raise and lower roads to create tunnels and overpasses.

The update will also improve traffic behavior, add a new single tree tool, and make several overall improvements to the game. You can check out the list of changes below:

Update 7 Changes Currently in Testing

New: Brand new tool to create bridges, overpasses, and tunnels when you draw your roads.

When building your road, pressing the , key or . key will lower or raise the road accordingly creating overpasses, bridges and tunnels.

Note: Existing road layouts cannot be raised or lowered

New: Improvements for Traffic behavior to make it smarter. This should reduce the number of lines formed by all available vehicles converging on a single spot. This affects all vehicles including Police, Fire Trucks, Moving Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Recycling Trucks, Resource Trucks, Buses, Ambulances, and Civilian vehicles going home, to work, or shopping.

New: Tree tools – Place individual trees around your city. These tools are located at the end of the Nature Parks palette.

Terrain: Fixes an issue some player’s see where terrain covers sections of roads while the camera is zoomed out.

Fixed an issue where the fire animation would sometimes continue when fire was extinguished.

Parks: Sports parks are now accepting Sims 24 hours a day.

Airship: The number of Airship passenger trips should now be correct over multiple days.

Vehicles: Vehicles now accelerate and decelerate faster, allowing them to leave buildings and go through intersections more efficiently.

Freight: Freight trucks now only leave factories if they have a valid delivery destination.

Gifting: Money gifting should be more reliable.
