Ever lost a city due to a corrupt save and you forgot to back it up? That city might still not be lost, as there is one way to try to make it work again - this method saved a city of mine. It is not guaranteed to work as the 2 older saves may also be corrupt. Backing cities up is the only sure way to avoid losing them.

As said before, this method will not work if the previous 2 saves are corrupt as well.
I have increased our donation amount due to a price increase from the hosting company. It happened last year but I've been covering it so far..... Also PayPal is charging more so I still end up covering extra amounts due to the exchange rate fees. I paid a lot more this month due to the mad exchange rate.Dismiss Notice
