U.K Modder have found a way to make SimCity playable offline.
A YouTube video describes the process of making the game playable offline. One particular modder by the name of UKAzzer showed how he played SimCity for at least 20 minutes, and the game still not booting him out.
The modder apparently used SimCity’s debug mode to achieve this. UKAzzer also showed how the highways was edited outside of the game’s boundaries.
“You can edit the highways ANYWHERE – even outside of your city boundary… and even if you quit the game and log back in later, it’s all saved safely on the server,” wrote UKAzzer. This shows that highway editing will be easily possible, AND that editing outside of the artificially small city boundaries should be very viable too.”
You can also edit the statistics, showing the true amount of people actually populating the city and not a “fluffed up” result.
“My large cities have a population of about 15k now, not 100k,” wrote UKAzzer.
However, not everything is sunshine and puppies as you have to log into the server to save, and to launch the game. Still, this shows that EA and Maxis can make the game offline playable if they put their mind to it.
Isn’t it lovely how companies just lie their fanbase straight in the face?
