    I can't get the launcher to download the update to fix the vista connectivity issue. Its probably due to the vista connectivity issue.

    Talk about catch 22 fail. Monte morons...

    I guess I'm on my own here - I lost all hope in these types of games when I installed CityLife Deluxe and had conquered it in about 3 hours...once you can build a White House, Kremlin or even a Sears Tower, the game is over.
    When I finally shut it down for good, I had 22 Sears Towers, 27 White Houses and 30 Kremlins, making in the hundreds of millions per month.

    This one looks a little better than the first, and I do have to admit that I wouldn't have put the first one down if I hadn't killed it in 3 hours. It was very intriguing and fun at first, trying to figure it all out, but once I knew the key, it became too simple for me.
    No replay value for me - but I'm willing to give this one a try - at least for 3 hours.

    Finally got it to work.

    Does anyone have the problem of the mouse cursor not being able to click directly on the menu buttons? I seem to have to move my cursor slightly lower than the menu buttons to select anything. Its annoying. The game seems pretty decent so far. There is definitely a lot more flexibility in city and road designs with angular and circular construction methods. I need more play time though.

    I downloaded CitiesXL demo, installed it, and went through the tutorials. I got confused on the transportation tutorial. It said to build a road between businesses and CityLink. Where is CityLink?

    Cities XL allows players to play on a persistent online virtual community known as a planet. As a member of a planet, players will be able to build their cities in a virtual world populated by other subscribers, trade resources such as electricity with other players, visit other cities as an avatar and host events.

    I have already purchase the game from steam (23 hours left I can’t wait!)

    I have play about 12 hours Cities XL and I can say that I am very imprested. Everything is there to make this game great!
    But the online Mod is not worth the money (monthly fee of €7.99), All you can do with the online is trade with other players and visit their cities etc.
