    :D I've had my copy for a few days and the detail is awesome. A lot harder than the previous versions which can be annoying at times cause it can be impossible to make money at times.

    I know they changed the graphic engine slightly, anything about ravamping the economics engine (like they should) ?

    Got my copy a few days ago now... it is a HUGE improve over previous versions.

    The graphics engine is totally different, up to todays standards for this type of game - you can created detailed worlds of valleys, hills, craters, mountains and so forth - so if you wanted to, you could create a copy of your town or area it's that detailed.

    The game is actually much harder though, I've gone broke each time. I think the key is starting really slowly.

    I just got done playing it for the third time (first two times went broke within 15 mins) heh... Ya if you don't start off slowly, very slowly and watch everything carefully... you will go broke quick... Third time, I'm about to go broke (owing 1.4million in loans) but my city is 92 thousand strong, making money but still at the end of the month, losing (if i up taxes any more boom everyone leaves town heh)) so ima gonna go broke :) But for now, heh gonna try and break 100,000 (hrmm... taxes at 0.0% should do the trick just nicely after I rezone some areas :D)
