What systems do you run it on? I am on the road a lot and was wondering if it would run on my rather oldish 2008 MacBook (2gigs ram and 2ghz c2duo with nvidia 9400M) via Boot Camp.
Might work ok. My system is also quad core I7 desktop, but it does not seem to break a sweat running SC5.
Is it just me or are the individual cities a little smallish? I ran my first city last night as a learning experience. I guess the first mistake people will make is in type of roads / spacing / not knowing that some structures can expand (leaving enough space around them).
And no Subway? That's a disappointment. Is anybody running the railroad on the ground to the center of the city? That seems like a lot of wasted space. Are they going to sell that as an Expansion / DLC?
Also, no raising / lowering ground as far as I can tell...
Another annoying thing was that certain buildings that can be upgraded, it seemed that at some point I had a functionality to bulldoze individual upgrade. Then later on, the bulldozer seemed to be grayed out. Is that a but or am I missing something?
