  3. Its becoming harder each month to keep this site floating on the web. As Adsense money is now four months apart, I'm covering the rest of the monthly bills.
    There's been a handful of donations which help a little but more regular donations are needed if this site is to stay alive.
    I know it's tough for everyone but if you can spare a little it would be awesome.
    P.S. Big huge thanks to the last donations. It was a big help for this month.

    I get bad lagging when first loading a large city I'm working on but as I zoom in and out over the different areas the lag slowly drops. This is the city areas loading in fully with detail. You can notice this more when you look at an area you have placed a lot of trees. When you first load the city that area will not display them all until you zoom in closer. Once you zoom in then back out, those trees will show up.
    As your city gets bigger it will make your PC work harder which is a fault of the game. Even thhough the XXL version was redone to use multiple cores, the game still runs like prevoius versions when cities get big.
    Dropping graphic settings may help and there maybe other things that other players do that I can't remember about at the moment. I'm on a AMD FX-8300 cpu, 16GB Ram, RX580 4GB and run the high settings. I get a little slow down here and there but I just put up with it.
